I originally sat down to write a blog post about an hour and a half ago. I was going to write about how I hadn't been to the gym since Sunday, and why I wasn't going to go tonight, even though I knew I should. But as I began composing the post in my head (I often do this through out the day, and inevitably forget something witty I planned to say that once I remember, no longer makes any sense in a future post), I realized that every excuse I had for NOT working out today, was exactly WHY I SHOULD.
I have made a conscious decision not to lie in my blog, not even a little (at least intentionally). So not only did I realize that I had no valid excuse for not working out, but I also realized that I felt guilty about the idea of not working out, and embarrassed to have to tell the truth in such a public forum. That was the motivation I needed, and I promptly changed from my PJs to a sports bra and yoga pants and ran out the door.
So now, here I sit, still sweaty from an hour on the elliptical, and so glad for it. And this is why I blog. It really does keep me accountable. Thanks.
EDIT: Also, Sakief. Sakief helped convince me to work out. Can't forget to acknowledge my man :)
