There are no excuses. I’ve written about this before, but something has come to my attention recently that has reinforced this for me.
Last week I went to the doctor about being constantly exhausted. I’m eating well, I’m getting enough sleep, and I’m exercising, so why am I so tired? They did some blood tests, and it turns out I have low iron (again) and that’s what’s making me so sleepy. I mean, you know when you’re sitting in class, or a meeting, and your eyes are burning, and you are having the hardest time just keeping them open? That’s me. I won’t lie, I have little bursts when I’m feeling better, but 80-90% of the time, I’m ready to go to sleep.
Well, after the doc told me I have low iron and prescribed me some iron tablets, I went home and ran 5km without stopping for the first time in my life. There are no excuses.
I could have just gone to bed that night, or sat and watched TV, because I was so tired. I even had a legitimate excuse, the doctor confirmed it! But no, I got off my ass, and I ran. No excuses.
You can do better, be better, feel better, you just have to get up and do it. No excuses.
If I can run 5km, after the doctor told me I have low iron, and that’s caused me to feel constantly exhausted, then you can get up, and do what you need to do too!
