I know! I'll just imagine I'm a spin instructor!

     I have to admit, riding a stationary bike indoors three days a week can get a little monotonous,  but that doesn't stop me from doing it.  It's time to play those mind games again so I don't start pulling out the excuses.  If I was a spin class instructor could I say "I just don't want to teach today"??  I don't think so; my paycheck would rely on it and so would the classroom full of anxious students.

     Okay, so I'm not a spin instructor, and my class room consists of... well, just me, but that doesn't mean I can't trick my brain into believing someone is counting on me.  So here's what I tell myself... "yes there is a paycheck and it's called my health:)"  And who is counting on me??  Well... me of course!  Do I need a whole classroom before it matters??  Heck no!!  So I slap on those sneakers and start on my mission; before I know it my class is done.

     Sure, I don't get a room full of "great job"s at the end,  but in my mind I hear it:)  That's all the reward I need!

Have a great day!



  1. Good way of looking at it Chris. When I don't feel like working out I tell myself, "would you forgo showering or brushing your teeth?" Of course not, workouts should be a non-nogotionable part of the day. Btw, I'd be first to sign up for your spin class!

  2. Hey, the more the merrier Karen! Join the club:)

  3. Awesome point-of-view, Chris! I definitely have my days where I don't even feel like getting out of bed; I need to channel your attitude in the morning! :)

  4. Thanks Nani:) If I didn't play the mind games I might be tempted to roll out at noon!


Please post a comment, I would love to hear from you. :)
