Love-Hate Relationships, Are they Worth It?

Today I started working towards my New Year’s 2012 Goals …. yes, you read that correctly, my New Year’s goals. I set some yesterday and thought, why wait to start? If I have these goals, let’s get started right away! I’ll be that much further ahead when the New Year starts and WAY ahead when 2012 ends!!

One of those goals is to gain 15 pounds in Lean Muscle. I put my resolution out in public on a Facebook app (  As I finished putting that in writing and out in public, I wrote down a few other goals for myself. As I looked at what I had written, being a person who just HAS to leap into action, I started thinking, “Imagine what could happen by starting sooner than later. Imagine where I could be later by starting now.” start now clockSo, today I did my 1st day of working out towards gaining those 15 pounds of lean muscle. I took my before pictures. I did some research on what I need to eat to optimize my goals. And, finally, I did my first workout towards accomplishing my goal.

During the workout, I was hating nearly every rep after the first 5! I kept pushing though! I took breaks when I needed but only

when it was ABSOLUTELY necessary then I pushed on afterwards! Everytime I wanted to QUIT, I’d say, “NO EXCUSES!” Then I’d

do the next move.

That was this morning. That time of pain is so worth it! Once I was down with a post-workout drink and shower, my mind felt clearer,

my mood was lifted, and my pain was replaced with pleasure! The endorphins and adrenaline are flowing and have been proven to boost creative hormones in the brain, mood enhancers in the body, and energy lifts for the day.  Yes, the pain – the hate is worth the pleasure – the love I feel now!

If you have something you want to get done, why wait? Is the pain of getting it started, the fear of failure so great that it overshadows the pleasure of how you’ll feel from having accomplished what you set out to do?  Imagine, then, the worst of what can happen by NOT doing what you fear now. If THAT Pain is greater than the little pain you will go through now, then use THAT to motivate you to get started! For example, is the pain of getting up early to exercise overwhelming enough that you find reasons, excuses not to exercise? And I guess the pleasure of the being in a better mood from the endorphins, the ability to think more clearly & focused, the increased energy, the improved health in cholesterol, blood pressure, etc.  and the improved appearances are not enough to get you moving, right? Alright, so how does the idea of having heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, inability to breathe, inability to walk, and dying early get you feeling? Because without some heart pumping exercise, those are just the things that can happen to you! What happen your finances? Unemployed but the pain of pounding the pavement, sending out resumes, and going to all those interviews just too painful to keep doing over and over and over? Does the pleasure of having potential financial freedom, food in your fridge, heat/ac in your home not provide the incentive to find that dream job or start that dream business? Alright, how does the idea of being homeless, with only the clothes on your back now, and begging for food sound to you? love-hate-baby

Life is full of Love-Hate relationships. Get past the Hate so you can embrace the Love, it always follows!

“Life is like a coin. Pleasure and pain are the two sides. Only one side is visible at a time.

But remember other side is waiting for its turn.” Unknown quotes
