"No one ever excused his way to success. "~Dave Del Dotto
This time next week we will be full on into the holiday season can you believe it?! I swear this year just flew by but I am soooo glad that 2011 is coming to a close this year has been extra rough!!
If you have been checking out the blog lately, you'll know that Healthy Girl! is hosting the 100 [Miles] for the Holidays challenge where you log in about 15-18 miles a week of jogging/walking/biking/moving etc. until Christmas.
Since I ran a 5K last Sunday and did an impromptu birthday 4-mile run last Monday plus the challenge, I have caught the running bug! Last Tuesday and Wednesday it rained and I took to twitter to complain. My little brother/fitness Nazi didn't like it too much and told me about myself:
Now Imani is not my blood brother, but he is the absolute closest thing to a real brother. He rags on me, jokes on me, laughs with me AND at me! So this type of twabuse (twitter+abuse) is common with us! Plus he really holds me accountable for my fitness and eating habits which is great to have.
|I think he meant 'adversity'|
Daaaaaannnngggg!! So right!! I definitely let the rain give me an excuse as to why I couldn't run! I talked myself out of being a runner before I even had time to make it a habit! I thought to myself, "How many times have I done this?" Not necessarily fitness related, but in life in general? Talked myself out of finding a new job, finishing a challenging class, meeting new people, having new experiences?
"Hold yourself responsible for a higher standard than anyone else expects of you. Never excuse yourself. ~Henry Ward Beecher

Lesson learned! Like they say, "From the mouth of babes..."
Have a fit-abulous day!!!
