Ever seen the e-card above?
If you frequent fit-centric Facebook Fan Pages, Pinterest, Tumblr, or any other site with a “health nut” slant, chances are you’ve seen it more than you can count.
It’s fairly self-explanatory: it requires you to dig deep and answer the question of why you do what you do?
Lately, I’ve had no trouble answering that question. I love my kids, my body, and my ability to still get my ass out of bed, slip on a pair of sneakers, and work my t-shirt into a wet mess. I consider that a privilege and a blessing and, as such, I have found success keeping my focus in the right direction—even though I admit to having fallen off track here and there; I always manage to get right back on the horse.
That said, my reason isn’t everyone’s reason, and it’s important that you discover your “why” so that you might have something to cling to when you hit that proverbial wall—and trust me we all hit that wall—and begin to wonder why you ever bothered at all.
Plain and simple: “I workout because I can”. Why do you?
