This week, notice all the ways in which you seek the option of comfort over the more difficult choice: 
– Do you take the elevator or escalator instead of the stairs?
– Do you skip your workouts because you’re too busy, yet spend hours scrolling social media on your phone? If you’re not sure where your time goes, do a time audit and find out. Check your phone to see how many hours you’re on it every day.
– Do you avoid making the conscious decision to lift heavier weights in the gym to avoid feeling challenged, and instead opt to stay on auto-pilot and just “survive” the workout?
– Do you choose the fast food line for lunch over the high-protein homemade meal?
– Do you avoid going to full range of motion or move too quickly through your strength workout because it’s too uncomfortable to use correct technique and your ego takes over?
– Do you skip your mobility work because you “don’t feel like doing it?” Even though 5-10 minutes would help ease pain and stiffness and improve tissue quality to help optimize your strength training workouts.
These seemingly insignificant habits add up over time, and eventually lead you in the opposite direction of where you want to go.
If you treat every rep of every set of every exercise of every workout like it matters, your results will come faster than you can imagine. It’s when you repeatedly cut corners for weeks, and months that you eventually discover you are far off the path you intended to be on. Simply going through the motions isn’t going to get you results. You have to be stretched in order to change. Don’t bury your head in the sand and hope for the best.
Everything you want is on the other side of the shit you don’t want to do. Make it a great week. You have options.
