Exercise meets Sponge Bob

So a fact you may not guess about me is that I get up 5 days a week to exercise.  I'm not kidding I really get out of bed 5 days a week before the sun is even out so that I can exercise.  I have been doing it for almost a year now.  And you want to know a little secret? I HATE IT!!! Everyday I have to talk my self into it.  Not one day goes by that I don't have to drag my sorry but out the door. All the while that little voice in my head is saying, "Hey, hey dummy what are you doing it is dark, go back to bed, hey I'm not done sleeping get back to bed NOW.") But at last I don't for reasons I won't go into right now.  However, it has dawned on my that my attitude about getting up early is not helping me accomplish getting up and going.  And as I have been reflecting this bad attitude I have I happened to be watching TV with my kids and Sponge Bob came on.  Truthfully I don't really get Sponge Bob but this particular show started with Sponge Bob running out his pineapple house singing, "I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready."  It made me think that if I would wake up with that alarm and say to myself, "I'm ready, I'm ready." Maybe just maybe I would quit hating getting up at 5:00 everyday.  At least once a day I tell Alex that your attitude dictates the kind of day you are going to have.  Maybe I should start listening to my own advice.  So tomorrow when I get up you will be sure I will be saying, "I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready."  Until I finally believe it.
