Sometimes I just want to sit in my recliner with my dog and snuggle all day. Sometimes I just want to eat bagels and poptarts from the time I wake up until the time I go to bed. Sometimes I ask myself why I'm even bothering to work out.. do I really need to torture myself like this multiple times a week?? I'm sure I'm not alone here. If you're anything like me, sometimes you let yourself do those things because sometimes they're just good for your soul! But 99% of the time I make myself get up and go. Sometimes it's easy, others it's like pulling teeth but I still get it done! I do it because I hold myself to a certain standard and I know that if I fool myself into thinking I don't care about how I look or how I feel, I will regret it.
I always thought my self control was just ok at best until I met people who claimed they wanted to get fit and eat right and be active but could never follow through then would complain about how they looked and felt all the time. My friend and I were talking about it one night and she passively mentioned how most people don't have my same discipline and self control. That was one of the biggest compliments I have ever received. I can't say it's there all the time and I will go HAM on some donuts but it's strong enough to get me to the gym day in and day out.
Where do you like with your self control? Do you take control of yourself, your life, and your actions or do you just wait around until you feel like doing something? It won't happen over night but I promise you that if you set your standards and refuse to let yourself settle for less, you will be amazed at the discipline you can develop.
