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.

    We get too busy for lots of things from the gym, to spending time with God.We have to set priorities and decide which things are vital to our survival.God, family, friends, and taking care of ourselves is all important.When will we realize that?Life is a gift.

    Good for you for starting again! I am not perfect either as I only ate one meal today too so I understand where you are coming from. Tomorrow, I start again, too. I just take it one day at a time and do the best I can! Hang in there and I know you can do it!

    This is why God blesses so many of us with a tomorrow so we have another day to get it right not only with Him but with ourselves. God first and you second. You can do it. Hang in there and pray that God will direct you into some me time for yourself. I wish you much success. Pray that God will only give you a taste for what you need to be healthy and take the temptations of man (Sweets and bad foods) away from you. God is able and more than capable to do this for you. This job is way to big for us so give it to God who can handle it far better than we can.

    Have you got a crock pot? I love mine and it cooks for me while I do other stuff. I made pot roast last night while I was asleep and packed it for lunch. In fact I am going to go heat it up in a minute. There is enough to last me like 3-4days.

    There are a lot of good recipes on spark to for crock pot use. That may help you get at least 1 more good meal in a day.

    always take time for God and yourself. If you can't work out right now at least work on eating better. Concentrate on getting 1 thing down then move to the next. Small steps are better then large ones sometimes. If they are to large sometimes you have to backtrack because you missed something.
