    bump for all the people that think they need to be motivated to work out.

    motivation is just damn training wheels until you get the hang of it... do we need training wheels? No. We need to get on the bike and show everyone we can actually put our money where our mouths are.

    Eh. I normally hate motivational posts on MFP. I don't log in for sermons... BUT... this one was pretty good. :)

    Totally agree. Everything changed when I DECIDED not to be sick anymore. No more "I wish, I want". Now I "DO". Strange how easy it is now that the thought process is completely different.

    Enduring chemotherapy is hard.

    Hitting a fast ball in the major leagues in hard.

    Negotiating nuclear disarmament from a hostile nation is hard.

    Saying goodbye to a loved one in the hospital or the veterinarian’s office for the last time is hard.

    But putting down the cookies and picking up the spinach?
    That’s only as hard as the story we tell ourselves.

    Great post, love this bit especially!!
