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:
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.
Evolved Mommy is about tech and gadgets as the relate to family life. We talk about Apple products like iPads, iPhones and pretty cases for iPads and iPhones. We talk about gadgets for the home like Nest thermostats and Roombas. We talk about nonsense and life in Northwest Arkansas. Whatever.
