You Bettah Show Up, Put In Work, or Go The Hells Back Home and Eat a Doughnut

These dudes are da bomb. They show up and put in work.

Well, yip-dee-do and congratulations. You showed up for your workout. Now remember why you even came in the first place.

Remember the abs you want. The legs you want. The body transformation you desire. Then give it 110%. It’s all yours if you want it.

It doesn’t matter how many pounds you have to drop, how many gremlin-babies you pushed out that made you pudgy, or how many people give you the side eye because they don’t think you can do it.

You can have the body you want.

Quit before the workout’s done? Start out the week strong then fizzle out by the weekend? Go at it for weeks and then totally drop the ball? Stay in beast mode for months and then revert back to your old ways?

Dear gawd. Then don’t even bother.

If you’re not gonna finish and take full possession of what you came, then go home right now and eat a damn doughnut or something. The only rewards that half-assers get are sub-par results and a body that’s maybe-kinda okay. Maybe.

But YOU? You’re not a half-asser. You keeps it real, baby. And you’re gonna get exactly what you came for. Because you show up and put in work.

  1. Great motivator, Josie! It’s SO easy to just show up but not really put your heart in it – sure, it’s easier, but what’s the point?

  2. Well said, well said!

  3. Emma says:

    *hand clapping* bravo ! bravo!

  4. @somerskys says:

    great, great words josie helps us all stay in beast mode!!!!! thanks!!:’)

  5. That photo is full of win, totally made my day!lols. I agree, the best motivator would be the ideal body that you wanted in the first place. Perhaps a recent picture would help one to move on along?

    My mantra for years: Start early. Work hard. Finish. Repeat as necessary. Uhm it’s ALWAYS necessary! In fitness, and in life.

  7. Jennifer says:

  8. Beast mode always!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well, not this week due to dental gum work that keeps me out of the gym BUT beware when I get back! 😉
