There will come that day when you absolutely do not want to begin exercising at all. There are a myriad of reasons that cloud your mind and press you back down to the couch so inertia keeps you from moving out the front door.
These are the tough days that you must tackle and overcome. Your type 2 #diabetes may well depend on it. Experience too many of these days and you will lose a valuable ally in your journey to health.
This is when you have to talk to yourself. You have to remind yourself that regardless of how you feel, you must act on what you know. And what you know is that you must get moving.
Oh sure, it is cold outside. And that will make your walk slightly uncomfortable. Or it is raining outside and you must go to your mall or your gym to either walk or workout. But you must overcome this. And you must overcome the inertia by talking to yourself.
Something like this:
-> I am going to exercise today regardless how I feel.
-> I really enjoy exercise once I get into it and today will be no different.
-> I will not let laziness stand in the way of the healthy benefits that I get through exercise
-> I grow stronger when I exercise, especially when I don’t feel like it.
It is amazing how powerful self talk is. It can literally move you from a demotivated sedentary human being to a motivated person getting on with life. And it is all within our power.
