All of my life, I've put others before me. I can't help it, caring comes naturally. I love helping others, and when I can't, it bothers me. Well, my daughter brought it to my attention that I was helping everyone but myself, and that she thought I was being selfish for not doing things for myself. Selfish? Me? Well I promised her that I would make time for ME, and I'm glad I did. I'm starting to do some of the things I love, and it feels good. I still help others, but I'm making time for me too.

Working out is making time for YOU. Working out is making your body feel GOOD. Working out can be ALONE TIME. Working out gives you an emotional BOOST. Working out is one step closer to your GOAL. Working out is a TREAT and a PRIVILEGE. Use it :)
No time to Spark seems to have resulted in not making time for my fitness routine. I'm coming up to what could be the busiest time of my life and I'm going to keep Sparking my way through it! :-D My success seems to encourage others, so LET THE SPARKING BEGIN! (again!) ;-D 185
This is silly but I would normally get dressed in my work out clothes 1st thing in the morning....even if I wasnt going to work out right away! I would wear them all day till I worked out. I hated to take them off if I didn't work out. It made all the difference! I almost always made time to workout
