Most of my excuses I have found over the past two years since I started with Spark and lost and gained and now gained even more, is that I don't really have the time. I am already on the computer 24/7 with taking online grad classes and getting on to track and check Spark messages takes time. However, if I just carve out a bit of time each day for it, I know it has so many benefits. I have uploaded the tracking app on my phone and this will help.
Goal - Log on everyday and enter my food and exercise! For right now, I just need to find the 15 minutes to do that.
Time to exercise, especially my strength training can be tricky. Yet I rememeber that when I was on the losing track it was because I was combining my strength in short segments even as I brushed my teeth or watched a program with my children. Time is there, I just need to use it.
Goal - Get in strength at least 3 times a week.
Time to relax and just unwind. This is really important as my life has been insanely busy and my friends and family are not calling because I am just never here. The stress I put upon myself is not helping my body at all or my happiness. I am finding the balance of doing what I enjoy by helping others and getting the ones I love around me to accept my balance.
Goal - Take Friday or Saturday evenings to just enjoy talking with people, so they just don't feel like I am too busy to care. I care deeply about my family and friends!
Time is not measured in minutes, but in the moments we enjoy!
