We are here. Day One.
The irony of commitment is that it's deeply liberating - in work, in play, in love. The act frees you from the tyranny of your internal critic, from the fear that likes to dress itself up and paraade around as rational hesitation. To commit is to remove your head as the barrier to your life.
--Anne Morriss, Starbucks customer from New York City. She describes herself as an "organization builder, restless American citizen, optimist."
I read that on a Starbucks coffee cup a year ago, and has somehow stuck in my mind since then. I find it to be applicable today as we begin our Hard Routine. Recall the fresh commitment you've made to fitness, health, and wellness whenever you are met with temptation...whether it knock in the form of laziness, cookies, or bad attitude.
