I Feel a Little Silly Now: Excuse Deflated

Wednesday, July 06, 2011

My number one excuse for not getting healthy sooner was: I just don't have the time. It was working for a long time, that small excuse. Now that I have been living life healthier I am finding that I have more time. Who would of known? More time, and more energy, and feeling a little bit more satisfied in life.

I used to not get in much physical activity. I was a coach potato really. Now every break at work I go for a walk (exception to lunch when I enjoy my chicken salad and soup) and then 3 to 4 times a week I do a DVD exercise program like Tae Bo or JIllian Micheals.

Eating healthier has saved time too. I cook in bulk and its so easy to throw a recipe together now. Shopping is quicker now that I mainly shop on the perimeter of the store.

And now I have energy, and those days I didnt have time.... it wasn't about time. I didn't have energy. Now I do, and my boys and I are having a blast with it.

So ya, I feel a little silly now.

    Agreed! It really never was a lack of time for me either..somehow I could always find time to do the things everyone else needed me to do, but not what I needed me to do. Good for you for getting perspective! And if that makes you silly, you're in lots of goofy company here! emoticon
