Am I Too Busy?
Tuesday, March 30, 2010
It started by celebrating my birthday with friends and family. Along with the list of things to do, I added many occasions of fellowship, fun and food. Others wanted to spend time with me: How could I say no? I enjoyed everything I was doing, but I was on a roller coaster that wouldn't seem to stop.
I have been doing everything, except taking care of myself. I say that I am too busy to eat right. I say that I don't have the time to prepare three healthy meals a day. I say that there is no time for the gym. And when there is time, I say that I am too tired or that I just don't feel like it.
Am I really too busy? Experts would say that I am not. And that I shoud always make the time because health is important. I would say this is true also. Although, my truth comes with a but. I can do well for a few months and then it hits me... I have been working too hard to keep this up. I am too busy to eat 3 meals a day. Therefore, I have been settling for just one healthy meal a day and a snack. I've been giving in to desserts and sweets. I know that's not the way!
I can't be too busy because I have not reached my goal. I am not going backwards and I am not going forward. Maintaining at this point, is not an option. I must reach my goal. I am NOT too busy. I will begin again today.
