There are times when I dream of being able to take a time out on life for a few days/weeks...spend it alone on an island or locked room (padded even would be fine). Cut off from everything and everyone. So, I can breathe. Focus. Think. Relax.
I usually excel at anything I set my mind to. But, it comes at a price because to reach my goals, I usually have to put "blinders" on and shut out everything else. But now it is different, at this start of my new year, I need to figure out how to balance everything: family, me, work, weigh loss/fitness.
I have a husband and little kids at home. I'm self employed. It's a lot of responsibility. But, I know it is possible. I read inspiring stories every day. I have as many excuses as time will allow me to think up. The thing is...so does everyone else.
I don't have the time, money or ability to leave my family for a few months to go to a Biggest Loser ranch to get this weight off. I know I'm not alone. I know others are out there just like me; there are others who have made weight loss possible under the worst of circumstances. I realize that I don't have as many obstacles as most. But, there has to be a way to balance everything.
