Get up, get out and get it done


Oh, I’ve indulged this Christmas season.  I’ve enjoyed the festivities and the food.  But, now, it’s time to get back on the ball.  As I write this, it’s a balmy 29 degrees farenheit here in Ohio (which will be the high, by the way) and I have the day off work.  So, I am going to take advantage of this by getting to the gym.  Believe me, I would enjoy going back to bed or lounging around but, I am working on an attitude reset.  It’s get up, get out and get it done.

  1. Get up: Few people lose weight just sitting on the couch or at the desk.  For sure, I know I don’t so, the first step is just getting vertical.
  2. Get out:  I like to work out at home sometimes but, for me, being at the gym seems to motivate me to work harder.  Perhaps, it’s the mentality I have that says, “since I’m here, I might as well put in the work.”
  3. Get it done: Excuses never shed a pound or dropped a pants size.  I don’t like excuses anyway — they never sound anything but lame.  So, why would I think I’d get away with them?

I don’t do New Year’s resolutions but, I do like resets.  This is my reset for the year.

Now, it’s time to get up from this comfortable chair behind my computer and work on steps 1, 2 and 3.
