Conquering my "Yeah, but" objections (30/30/30: 7) - Evolved Mommy
30/30/30 is a fitness goal I’ve set for myself in which I will complete thirty 30-minute workouts in thirty days. Of course, a 1-hour workout counts as two workouts. This is my goal and I’ll make up the rules as I go.
After two days of being sick with some sort of chest cold/pneumonia/flu (I exagerate at will because this is my blog and I can) and not working out at all I carried myself to the gym tonight.
After a good thirty minute trip on the elliptical I can now proudly say that I have conquered two of my strongest “yeah, buts.”
What is a “yeah, but”?
A “yeah, but” is a thing, any thing, that keeps me from doing something. They come in different varieties: financial, professional, social, fitness, etc.
The two “yeah, buts” that I overcame tonight I are:
- It’s night
- I don’t feel well
Let’s discuss the first one. Why don’t I work out at night? Well, I have this idea that I need to be at home. We get just a few hours together each day as a family, so who am I to do something by myself during that time. Whatever. This is ridiculous objection. We see plenty of each other. Moving on.
The second one can easily be co-signed by any willing member of my support network. The problem is, I don’t really feel all that bad. It’s just an excuse.
Today I am proud of me.
Tomorrow = Pilates.
