  • Sometimes you have to push...

    No excuses

    Oral surgery Monday
    cutting down the medication
    pain

    It has to be done

    tired
    depressed
    unmotivated

    Remember where you've been

    overweight
    out of shape
    weak

    Look in the mirror

    don't lose it
    don't go back
    don't give up

    Work out

    strain
    pain
    gain


    It really doesn't matter what you feel like
    you'll feel worse if you don't do it
    but guilt only lasts a little while
    then complacency sets in
    and you can return
    to being who you were
    but ask yourself

    is that who I want to be?
