One of the things that I noticed when watching my own videos, is how fat my face has gotten this year.
I am upset with myself, that I allowed myself to increase 15 pounds.
During the pandemic, I stopped working out and I ate everything.
A combination that guarantees extreme weight gain.
For the last month, I’ve been consistently working out. I try to get in at least 4 days a week but will usually do 5 or 6 days.
The only time I could work out is in the morning. I’ve never been consistent when I did my workouts after work. I know that about myself.
Since my work day starts pretty early at around 7:00am, I need to get up really early to make those morning workouts happen. So I set my alarm at 4:00am.
But if I don’t do it like that, I won’t have enough time to get everything in.
My morning wake up, without fail, goes like this:
“The alarm goes off. And the first thing that happens is – I start swearing. I mean really bad swearing. Then I’m feeling for the alarm and finally turn it off.
I lay in bed, trying to convince myself not to get up. I have this internal battle EVERY SINGLE TIME. I tell myself that I’m so tired and how I already went 2 times this week and I should take a day off. And all kinds of stuff.”
Sometimes that voice wins but most of the time it doesn’t.
On the days that I win the battle against myself, this happens: In a really spazzy, abrupt motion, I’ll sit up and say, “F*** it! I’m going.”
And I’ll tell you, almost 100% of the time, I am super happy that I did it. I feel great afterwards. I did something positive for myself first thing in the morning. Its a great way for me to start off my day.
Many people have this internal battle when they go to the dentist.
For many people going to the dentist requires a lot of “psyching yourself up.” You know it’s the right thing to do, but we find a million reasons why we can’t.
We say to ourselves, “Work is too busy and I can’t take off.” “Nothing is hurting, so there’s probably no issues.” “It’s going to be so expensive and I can’t afford it right now,” etc.
If it’s been a while since you last saw the dentist and would like to get back on track, please call 773-292-1911 to set up your appointment.
