I have been dancing around starting Jillian Michaels’ Body Revolution for a while. I’ve done day 1, day 2 and day 3. But, I haven’t done them in a row. They have been spread out by a few days…. or a week.
I know that my perfectionist tendencies make this task more difficult. 90 days is a long time to commit to a workout program. I know that there are people out there who would say, “It’s only 3 months!” I wish I had that mindset. I tend to think “Oh, no! It’s 3 months! That’s a long time to be perfect!”
I am making a conscious effort to throw my perfectionist tendencies out the window. I would rather be imperfect than be a failure.
So, today I start. I know it is possible for me to complete the program. I know that it will take some dedication. It will also mean that I will be breaking a bad habit. If I miss a workout. I will continue with the program the next day. Missing a workout is not a reason to quit — it is a reason to push harder the next day. If I don’t get any “me” time until 10 pm, I will workout at 10 pm. No excuses. The end goal is worth it.
