Motivational Speech

Okay, self. You and I are going to have a little chat.

We are three stone overweight and have put on a dress size over the past few months. We have been saying for years that we need to lose the weight, do some more exercise and be happier within ourselves. We have made a few well-meaning attempts that have fallen apart for a variety of external reasons, but let's be honest: the rest are just excuses.

We're basically lazy. And unmotivated. We lack the basic ability to get off our collective backside and do something about it.

So, listen up, self. This weekend we are going to take ourselves into Birmingham and investigate the low-cost new gym that's opened up. We're going to pay the monthly fee and we're going to bloody well start attending.

No arguments. I'm the boss of us and my word is law.

We just need to work together and motivate each other to stick at it, and eventually the benefits will appear.

Okay, self? Got it? Good.


Er, yes. Not sure if giving myself a motivational speech will actually help, but it makes me feel more assertive.

If I do not go to the gym and am still moaning about my weight in six months' time, absolutely everyone I know is entitled to tell me to STFU.
