very true. I had someone admire my walking and weight loss efforts and said she had seen me out there doing the pavement pounding but that she didn't have time to do that. Her thoughts changed when I explained that we have the same hours in each day - it's just that I choose to exercise, I choose to make it a priority
She's going to come walking with me some time in the near future!
Smile .... it makes people wonder what you're up to ;-)
The fourth glass of wine is always a good idea before you do it and a really bad idea afterward! ;-)
It is far easier to MAKE time to exercise than it is to FIND time to exercise. You want results???? MAKE it happen.
Have you ever taken on too many things that your health ended up suffering for it?... I have!
Have you every thought how nice it would be to have another hour or two a day to complete or start something that you've wanted to do? I want more than 2 hours...
What is it that makes us put health on the back burner so we can enjoy something else or eat the wrong things because it makes us feel better (In the long run it doesn't)
These questions are hard to answer when you set your priorities in the wrong way... let me explain...
I've just come home from work do I A. Watch TV B. Read a Book C. Eat Comfort or junk food D. Get active by doing something to help us get in shape, or have fun with family, run, jog, swim etc?
Would I rather:
A. Eat a balanced meal including all of the food groups in the proper portions or B. Eat 4 or 5 pop tarts C. eat pizza Pops d. cookies, pastries and cakes
These are the decisions we make every day but do we make the right healthy decision?
Now... about time... If you want to work out... what's stopping you? If you want to ride a bike or go swimming, throw a ball or Frisbee...go to the gym... What's stopping you?
It's not that we don't have time... If we want to make time for an activity if we want it bad enough we'll make the time and the effort. We'll do whatever it takes to do what we have to do!
Do you have 4 minutes during commercials? Lift some weights or ride a stationary bike, Is the snacks you choose healthy or is it junk food? Decisions decisions! I choose healthy!but it all takes time to prepare... It's just as easy and it takes about the same amount of time to eat right or snack but the only difference is the quality of the snack you choose.
When you put good healthy priorities first you lead the way when it comes to healthy decisions! When you get into the habit of making time for proper nutrition and fitness your body, your soul and your life will respond favorably.
I know when I sit too long my muscles tighten up and tense up. That's why I stretch at home and at work! I try to stay active as much as I can! Besides, exercising brings down my blood sugars and that's a great reason right there for exercising!
The things that we should be doing in most cases are being put on the shelf so we can do what we want to do! Remember if you make your priorities with Fitness and Nutrition at the top of the list you will feel better, You will look better and you will be able to accomplish more things with less stress, headaches,muscle aches and other problems...
It's time to make more time for yourself and your lifestyle change! Get up... Get Moving... feel better and look better! You're worth the effort that you put in each and every day!
I know that you want to.... I do! I know that I have to... I'll make it a priority I'll make the time to better myself! I'll pencil myself in for a better life!
We can do it! All we have to do is make the time! Ray
