Most people start a new year ready for a fresh start and full of motivation to make changes.
And usually somewhere around mid-January, that motivation dies.
I think my trainer's New Year's resolution was to make me throw up. Sometimes after a workout with her, I come home and check the internet to see it Jillian Michaels has died in a freak accident...because I am sure that Julie is channeling her spirit!
So the other day during a particularly brutal workout, I received a boost in motivation. I was doing v-ups, which suh-huck by the way, and practically in tears when an older gentleman (probably in his 60s) walked by and said something to my trainer. She burst out laughing at what ever he had said.
When I finished my set she said, "So that man that just spoke to me said 'I would like for my wife to have her body. Can you do that for me?' "
That comment totally made my day. And it made going back to gym next time much easier. Apparently all I need for motivation is an inappropriate comment from a man old enough to be my father! Sick, I know!
