About a month ago I decided that it was time to start working out again. I was tired of being out of shape and today marks day 15 of my journey into the P90x workout program. I did Chest & Back. But it almost didn’t happen.
I found out over the weekend that as of January ,1st, I would no longer have a job. The company I work for is closing it’s doors. So needless to say, after hearing that I will be losing my main source of income, my priorities have shifted. I woke up today thinking I should probably put my workouts on hold so I can devote all of my resources to finding a new job. And I’m sure most people would have understood.
But then I remembered a quote that I posted on the Motivated Quotes Facebook page not too long ago — “An excuse that makes sense is a rationalization.” We can always find fantastic reasons that make perfect sense to not be doing the things that we should be doing, but in the end, it’s still just a rationalization. And besides, I can think of one thing worse than being unemployed. And that is being unemployed and out of shape.
