No excuses: Don’t stop, get it, get it

First off– thank you so much for all of the kind words and sweet support on this week’s posts so far! Honestly, I can’t tell you how much it means to me. It’s always nerve wrecking to put creative work, which is so subjective to personal tastes, out there, and I am grateful for all the love and kindness you have shown. ♥

I’m about to revisit this post from August when I said I was going to try running at least once or twice a week. As a non-runner who got winded after two blocks, it took a lot of mental preparation to even get in the right mindset to want to go for a run. I used to take any excuse I could to get out of it. It’s too hot outside, the sun is going to set in 20 minutes, I just ate a cookie 5 mins ago, etc, would be my lame excuses to get out of running in the past.

I can’t say my running habits have increase by leaps and bounds, but I’m definitely more aware of my previous bad habits of making up excuses for why I couldn’t go. This Momentum cuff has been serving as an interesting removal of mental blockers that used to make me want to not run or quit a run early.

The cuff is meant to be a friendly reminder, or boost of confidence, whenever I look down at my wrist in the middle of an activity. It’s a super cute reminder, which surprises and makes me smile whenever I look down and about to quit early.

Just need to remember to stop making excuses for chasing what I say I’m going to do. ;)

  • I can see how that cuff would be a great tool… especially because I love meaningful/motivational jewelry! Get it girl! :)
