This is the name of my blog, and also a mantra that I use quite often. Many people assume that as a trainer or instructor it's easier for us to workout, to get up and exercise, to eat right and not "cheat". Well, its somewhat true, I guess, as we do see firsthand the results of not exercising coupled with poor eating habits, but on the other hand it isn't always easy. While I don't love to get up at ungodly hours to exercise, I know how much better i'll feel at the end of the day knowing I made the effort. Same for eating, I know if I eat poorly all day, or for several days, I'll feel miserable, so instead I'll have mini splurges when the mood strikes, but 80% of the time I"m paying very close attention to what I eat.
That all being said, it's not easy. It's work, damn hard work, and there IS NO FINISH LINE!! Which is discouraging when you first realize this (the first time I heard that I thought NO, really? Oh, I have to be this good ALL the time? Like, forever?), but once you get used to it it's also helpful so as not to plunge into a deep dispair after each time I have a slice of pizza. (Ok, well there you go as I never have just one slice, it's usually three or four) Which brings us around to the title of my blog. EVERY DAY IS MONDAY. That's right. For me, every day I wake up and promise to do better, to become stronger, to be a more forgiving, peaceful and happier person than I was yesterday. To be the person my kids already think I am, and to become the person I want to be.
Damnit, I aim high because I'm the only one who will do that for myself. With that being said, I'm going to welcome you to my blog, and go figure out how I can be better tomorrow. Sweet dreams!
