Giving up is not an option

I’ve beat myself up for far too long

I know I can do this

I know that I am strong

Sometimes I get lazy and indulge a bit too much

But I know I have power so I just can’t give up

The setbacks won’t hold me,

If I fall I will get up each time

I am a warrior, determined to get what is mines

With discipline, consistency and a positive mind

I know I can go further in my own race to better health and fitness this time

My race can’t be compared to anyone’s at all

For we all struggle and sometimes fall

The goal is to make it to the healthiest version of me

So I’m unafraid to start over whenever I fall or get off track because “Giving Up” is just not an option for me.
