Lately, I found myself running short of time to do all the things necessary for the BLC. I mean I have literally been exercising at 9 pm! Although it is clear that I need to plan better (whenever possible), I think it is also reflection of my commitment to myself. I am no longer saying to myself, it is okay, because I had a long day. I am no longer saying to myself, skip it and do it tomorrow. I am no longer okay with any excuse I try to come up with to avoid exercise.
Now, don't be concerned. I am NOT becoming a fitness nut or something. I think what is happening is that I recognize the importance of doing things for myself - NOW, not later. Also, I think it is because I am working on my self image, and not just my goal of weight loss. I actually said to myself, I only have about 50 pounds to go when I can say "bye bye forever to speciality size stores". I can't remember the last time I place the word "only" on any weight loss goal.
And what is impacting my time crunches is not just the exercise, but all other things that are necessary to max out the challenges. The other things, like organization and decluttering- are as important to my more positive outlook.
I am working on better organizing my time. However, I am so please that I am making ME a priority again.
