My husband hired a personal trainer for me 3 months before our wedding. I usually met with her every Friday at 7 AM, but this particular week she was unavailable. She presented two options to me. I could come twice the following week or I could come earlier on Friday morning. 5 AM earlier! I didn’t want to miss my weekly training session with her so I chose to go in at 5 AM. I drug myself out of bed and into the gym when I saw a class was in session. The parking lot is empty at 7 AM when I usually go so to see so many people at the gym 2 hours earlier threw me for a loop. Giving my personal trainer the stank face, I said, “Who works out at 5 AM?” She looked at me for a second and said, “You do.” My mouth opened to say something, but I didn’t have a comeback. I chose to come to the gym at 5 AM so that I wouldn’t miss my weekly training session. I was dedicated to my new fitness goal. I was the crazy person who worked out at 5 AM. Me. The woman who wouldn’t get up at 5 AM if her house was on fire. I had changed and didn’t even realize it.
If someone said, “Girl, I can’t see myself getting up at 5 AM to workout!” I would have quickly blurted out, “Me, neither!!” But, that wasn’t the truth. Not anymore. And, it took someone pointing that out for me to even recognize it.
Think about who you were 2-3 years ago, your daily habits, who you hung around, the things you did, the things you didn’t do. Compare that with who you are right now, your daily habits, who you hang around, the things you do and don’t do.
How have you changed?
