At first I didn’t.

I fell asleep after 12am and woke up this morning at 4am. Then at 6am. and again at 7:30am. Needless to say, my sleep schedule was wacky and I felt like a sack of potatoes coming out of bed.

I realized I had my morning routine to follow through with, which requires me to run at least 1 mile to start my day. Suddenly, a flood of excuses began to emerge – LOL!

I was caught with my guard down and nearly drowned. Fortunately, I had my fiancee ask me if I was going to run. Now I had a witness – someone to hold me accountable for my actions.

She is not the type to take excuses, as she runs everyday around 5-6am. It was a no-brainer at that point – I had to run.

As I was getting ready to run, I started to rewire myself with positive affirmations. Telling myself that I feel great, I have tons of energy, I run effortlessly like a gazelle, etc. By the end of the run, I was feeling great.

Lessons to be learned:

  1. Have a proper sleep schedule.
  2. Never accept any excuses!
  3. Have someone to keep you on track and make sure you follow through with you said you would do, that WILL NOT accept your excuses.
  4. Use positive affirmations to shape your attitude. Always speak positively to yourself, no matter what you might feel.
