When is the Time?

Sunday, March 10, 2013

The road to health and wellness can be a precarious one for some of us. We say we want to embrace change and become better versions of ourselves. Change, however, comes at a price. Change requires us to be diligent, goal oriented, positive, decisive and strong. Change means giving up the past and moving forward. This can be uncomfortable and even terrifying. No, we don't wish to remain where we are, but at the same time, changing means giving up something we value. Comfort. We might not like where we are, but we are comfortable here. We know what to expect, we are creatures of habit and breaking those habits will require work. Hard work. We do not have an aversion to hard work, but again we are so darned comfortable where we are. On the couch. Eating ice cream. At least I am.
It isn't easy to replace bad habits with new healthy ones but it IS vital.

You might say this all sounds so serious. It is. This is a matter of life or death. This is YOUR life. If you don't embrace change what is the alternative? When I choose to remain stagnant and sedentary and I choose to feed my body garbage instead of healthy fuel, I am creating an uncertain future for my loved ones. When I don't take care of myself I put my family in danger. They are in danger of losing me to heart disease, diabetes, stroke and a myriad of obesity related illnesses.

When do we say enough? When do we decide it's time to do the work, change the habits and become the healthy version of ourselves that we know we can be? Now. The time is now.

    Great blog. You are right on all points. If we don't embrace the changes we need to make today.....tomorrow may be to late. Only we can take care of ourselves with the choices we make. Have a great day.

    Your so right. The time is now. Because really when is there a good time? If we wait for it it may never come to us, we have to go to it. So today we dear friend i'm moving forward. Back from a visit with my family, which means i'm up on the scales, but i'm clear in my head, I have had nice talks with my mom, and a friend, and i'm ready to make this journey my own. I can follow a plan but in reality it has to be mine that I follow. The ideas are there we just have to put them to work with the items we enjoy and then we have to get moving. So Kristi today lets get moving forward, the time change is now and with it lets start working on the change we need also.
