Why do YOU work out?

Or, why don`t you? =) Getting yourself ready for a work out, can be extremely challenging. I know - believe me! Thoughts of denying that you need to do this, feeling like it`s taking too much time in your already busy schedule, sweating etc.  But then there`s the courage within you..  your passion for life, for the feeling of joy when you can say "today, I accomplished" - that drive just starts pulling through and rising to the challenge. Your preparing yourself mentally, and this one your gonna win. Leaving your head behind - you play this from your heart.....

"Workouts are like brushing my teeth; I don't think about them, I just do them.  The decision has already been made." - Patti Sue Plumer, U.S. Olympian.

This woman has records  in running from 20 years ago, that no one has been able to beat to this day.
A shift happens when you start training from you heart. Sounds like a cliche. But it`s true. So what does this mean? It means that the reasons for working out are other reasons then just fitting in to those jeans, or your vacation next month.Which, those are OK goals in themselves, but they are not lasting motivation! Training from your heart means being responsible for your health all life through. Sure I wanna look, and feel good now. But more then that is, I want to feel AWESOME when Im 40, when I`m 50. I want to be healthy and vibrant while my kids grow up. Or, I wanna be the grandma that has energy and life to give to her grandchildren!
Life will have it`s up`s and down`s - but you have the ability to choose whether it will be good or not! What I have learned through years of training is that I CAN. I got through that month of working out 3 days a week, 5AM till 7AM - I can do anything! Running that 6 mile run was hard, but if I can do that, I have established a basis for believing in myself to go through other things that are hard. 
I value myself enough to create a lifestyle where I am my best. I`m not saying that working out hard everyday is for everyone. We all go through seasons in life where we have to modify our lifestyle to our environment. But as for me, I will always come back to the simplicity of my values.

Im writing this after having instructed 135 minutes of Spinning. I had my own 45 minute class, and then our gym hosted a Breast cancer awareness donation Bootcamp which lasted for 90 minutes. Anyways, I feel exhausted. But I also feel strong. I can. You can!!!!!!
