This was a very difficult week for me. As you may know, I enjoy working out in the morning because it avoids problems with trying to schedule later workouts. The idea has always been to workout at a time when life can't get in the way.
This past week I had way too much difficulty getting up. Honestly, the reason is because I went to bed too late. That leads me to wake up not in the mood to hit the gym, so I go back to sleep. When I do wake up to go to my client, I feel guilty. However, this week has had a double whammy because my afternoons and evenings have been packed, so I can't even make up a workout in the evening. This caused me to get a little depressed about my training this week. It got so bad that I consulted with Marlene Keys, a friend of mine from Twitter who specializes in the Law of Attraction. Marlene's advice was priceless.
She asked me about my training. She then said that I should not beat myself up about missing a training session. The more you think negatively about something the more you will avoid that thing. Thus, by beating myself up about this I was making the problem worse. So, on Wednesday I stopped beating myself up about it and I was able to fit in a workout. Not just a workout, but a beast of a workout!
Thus, if you find yourself in this situation, either with your workouts or your nutrition, don't beat yourself up. Let it go and things will clear up quickly. You attract things to yourself by thinking positively about those things. Give it a try and you will likely find that things improve for you.
So what is on your mind?
