I don't know if anyone has seen this on You tube, but Chris brought it to my attention and it's now an ongoing thing with us...
We are constantly telling each other to "harden the fuck up".
It actually works really well.
Think about it, do you find that you constantly make excuses as to why your not working out or your just too tired to do whatever?(that's a big one of mine) Next time you catch yourself making excuses, just tell yourself to, "harden the fuck up"...it works.
Example...Sunday night Chris took me to an open jam where of course everybody wanted him to get up and play. He leaned over to me and was like...."ugh, I just hate playing on other people's stuff, I always sound like shit."
My response?..."Harden the fuck up Chris."
Then Monday morning I was debating on whether or not to go work out at Bob's Tuesday cause I had a dentist appt and that would mean two trips to town and ugh what a pain in the ass.
Chris's response?..."Harden the fuck up Stacey."
See how fun?
All I know is that it gets a good laugh and by golly Chris got up and played and I went to workout at Bob's then back home to change and clean up and back to town for my dentist appt before going to work.
Another one I use a lot is..."feel the fear and do it anyway". That's a quote from Sean Croxton and I just love it. It has pushed me to do a lot of uncomfortable stuff.
Sorry if the eff word makes you cringe, but harden the heck up just does not have the same effect.
Harden the fuck up people.
That is just too much fun.
I can't wait to try it out on my kids.
P.S. Still fighting with China to give me back my money for my dress and in the meantime, I found a new even better more kick ass dress to take it's place. It'll be here tomorrow. If that one doesn't work, I am bedazzling my sweats and wearing them with heels. I have a really good feeling about this dress though and the best part is that I bought it through Zappos so if I don't like it, I can send it right back.
P.P.S I am in LOVE with my daughters Uggs. I really need to buy my own pair. Best boots ever and no need for stupid dumb socks...love that!
P.P.P.S. I bought 2 ten lb kettlebells. Why do they feel so much heavier then a 10lb dumbbell?! Course then Barbara is all on Facebook like..."woohoo, I just got my 50lb kettlebell"...FIFTY POUNDS!...fifty. 50.
P.P.P.P.S. Clearly Barbara does NOT need to harden the fuck up.
