If I were less lazy, I'd get up at 5am to work out before getting the kiddo ready for school.
If I were less lazy, I'd be doing pushups, planks, and crunches while sitting on the floor with the kids.
If I were less lazy, I would make my own protein bars instead of getting the store-bought kind.
If I were less lazy, I would read a lot more and study a lot harder.
If I were less lazy, I'd watch less tv with the husband at night and do productive stuff instead.
If I were less lazy, I'd have that kick-ass bedroom quilt finished by now.
And a quilt for each kid.
If I were less lazy, I'd be able to do twice as many pullups at this point. Which would be two. Haha.
But you know what, I'm not less lazy. And I'm a damn fine leap ahead of the previous me.
So I'll suck it up and be happy with how far I've come. I used to never work out. Like, never.
I used to think running was a punishment and that pushups would just make your arms bulky.
I used to eat candy bars instead of store-bought protein bars.
I used to only read beauty magazines and wish I looked like them. And studying wasn't in my wild college girl vocabulary.
I used to sit and watch tv during the day also, instead of saving for decompression time at night.
I used to think that sewing was for grandmas. I didn't know the beauty of something handmade.
I used to say I'd never even do one pullup.
So I guess it's not that bad, huh?
In a world where we're constantly reminded of our shortcomings, look at yourself today and remember how far you've come. And feel proud. You deserve it!
