I’m not trying to brag here. I am just stating a point that I got up at 4:30 am this morning to go to the gym. I wanted to check out a boxing class at 5:45 am. I left my house at 5:15 am and had a feeling I wouldn’t make it.
As I drove through Jones Beach, up the Wantagh Parkway onto the Seaford Oyster Bay, I kept thinking – relax, if you don’t make it, you can do something else….
Once I was on the Seaford Oyster Bay, I knew it would take me 15 minutes to get there. There was no way I would be able to get to the class on time.
Should I go into the class? I took off the gloves, smelled my hands and decided to disinfect my hands before working out any more. They smelled horribly! The answer was no, I was not going to wear those gloves any longer to go into the class. So, I designed my own routine:
The hour went by quickly. I decided to go into the steam room, take a shower and go to work.
As I was drying my hair, a woman told me she was jealous that I was finished. It was now 7:15 am. “Don’t be,” I said, “I left my house at the crack of dawn.”
Before I left the gym, I went to get a cup of coffee from the snack shop. “Wow, I’m so jealous,” another woman said to me.
I just smiled and walked away knowing that I got up at the crack of dawn and instead of getting discouraged that I didn’t have the right equipment and got to the class late, I still exercised. There were no excuses at that point!
