When life gets hectic, and mine is certainly that, we often have to make choices quickly. When it comes to the house we are building I have to give my selections careful consideration. Do I want a charcoal grey roof or burnished slate? Do I want porcelain tile or hardwood in the foyer? Those decisions are given due consideration but what about my "health" decisions? Most are made quickly and the difference between THIS and THAT can have HUGE consequences. Here are some of the choices I have made and some that YOU might be facing. Take a minute to think about how a simple "pick" can alter your journey.
Water or Soda Pop
Elevator or Stairs
Grilled Chicken or Fried Chicken
Late Show or Bedtime
Computer Game or Fitness DVD
Ketchup or Sliced tomato
Farmville or Sparkpeople Articles
Sitting on the porch or Walking up the lane
Potato Chips or Air Popped Popcorn
Weighing in or Pushing the scale under the bed
Drive-Thru or Drive HOME
Eating at the Table or Munching in front of the TV
Apple or Apple Pie
Vending Machine or Snacks from Home
Sitting or Standing
Can't or Try
I could think of many more but I hope you see the point. We often CHOOSE based on convenience or plain "want". Those choices made over and over can lead us into detours. I know... I've BEEN there.
Take a moment to think of the choices YOU will make today and try to make healthy ones!
