OK, this isn't true, but I DO like the graphic. We can find a lot of excuses not to do things we are supposed to do.
Yesterday, my Daughter and I made a batch of my Burritos. Lean ground turkey, spinach, zucchini, onion, tomato puree, a few kinds of beans, all rolled up in a low-fat tortilla, with a little low fat cheese. They are about 250 calories each, and REALLY good, and good for you. I wanted something in the house that the kids would like to eat. I made 30 of them, so it will get them (and me!) through a number of meals.
I was then going to go to the gym. I asked my Daughter if she would come with me. She was all for it, then an hour later when we had cleaned up everything and were ready to go, she told me she was tired. NOOOOOO! I said, please come. You will feel better that you did. She did.
I didn't, because she cut everything very short, as she is not used to all my gym activity. I did my weight machines, started on my bike and she wanted to go swim. I got in 10 minutes on the bike, when I usually get in 20. I usually swim for 45 minutes every day. I only got in 25 minutes, before she was raring to get out of there.
I was glad she went, though, and really laughed at myself for being MAD that I couldn't do more time at the gym. My former self would have been lazy, like my Daughter wanted to be, and I PROBABLY wouldn't have made it there. No matter what, I know I am a different person now, and I am so delighted with everything.
My Daughter WILL get there. I praised her, and never told her that she was cutting my time short. I wanted her to come back, on her own time, and told her I was willing to help cover the cost of the membership (it is a discounted membership, and just might be worth the monetary sacrifice!!)
Please do not equate Jim at McDonalds with an awesome trip to the gym. That is our former selves, that we have shed to become the awesome people we are now. Jim will never miss us. The Gym will not have to.
Every step you take, every move you make, will bring you closer to your goals. Everyone can do this. Walking is a great start.
