Day 12: Over the past 24-32 hours or so I have totally been letting the holiday bustle get the best of me. As I pop a few cookies in my mouth because it is faster than making a fresh healthy salad, I tell myself that maybe I'll just wait until after the holidays are all over to really focus on eating well and exercising because right now it is just too busy.
Too busy for my own health. Too busy for the welfare of my family. Too busy to set a good example for my kids. Too busy to eat a healthy meal. Too busy...
Haven't I been telling myself this for years. I'm just too busy...maybe when things slow down.
Well, maybe I need to slow things down for what is important. I don't think anyone needs that extra batch of cookies I was going to bake and no one is going to be looking at my slightly dusty baseboards while my family and I are away for the holidays. I need to stop, reevaluate, and get my priorities straight...and by goodness, my health is a priority! I'm a pretty important person around here...I need to start treating myself that way.
