I wake up some days and think to myself, I should just sleep in, I can do this later, I can skip a day, but then I hear this in my head- I'm reminded I can do this if I want to hit my goals. I like the way it makes me feel to hit those fitness goals each morning. closing those Apple Watch Rings every day.
