“It’s too early.” “It’s so cold outside of these covers.” “I’ll go tomorrow.” “I don’t want to wake the dog… Seriously though look at him, he’s so cute. LOOK at him.” If you’re like us, you spend the first few minutes of your day making excuses for why you can’t work out. It’s a new year though, and we hope to turn over a new leaf and become one of those mystical unicorns who wake up and work out first thing. If you’re interested in joining us on this journey, check out our favorite Instagram accounts to scroll through when we’re having a tough time taking the first step.

Don’t allow your excuses to be bigger than your goals. Make a decision that nothing will stand in your way from accomplishing who you desire to be. – – If you can accomplish this then your sleep, the weather, and even your comfortability won’t deter you from doing the amazing. Don’t give in. Keep going. You got this.
