This morning before I started my workout, I cued my iPod to start with Nickelback’s “If today was your last day”. It has been my go-to warm up song for a long time. Why? It gets me mentally prepared for the workout ahead and makes me think a little.
“My best friend gave me the best advice/He said each day’s a gift and not a given right”. How true and because it is a gift, I want to make each day my best day and feel really good about everything I do. It makes me think about working hard, taking chances and that sometimes the hardest part about doing anything is just getting started.
I usually do my best thinking on a long run. I have made a lot of my toughest decisions huffing , puffing and sweating along a dusty trail. While my body is doing its thing, my mind is allowed to do its thing; usually without me even knowing about it!
We all have things we would like to do better; whether it’s leaning out, bulking up or just getting more active and feeling better. Is it going to happen while you are bonding with your couch? Nope. So get moving and make it your best day!
Let today be the day that you shine. Have a kick-ass workout, try something new, enjoy the sunshine, try a new healthy recipe, and BE HAPPY! “Every second counts ’cause there’s no second try/So live like you’ll never live it twice”. Make the most of today and your workout. You’ll never regret the healthy choices you make today!
