Me First

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

I have had it. I mean seriously had it.

I am never, ever, going to lose this weight until I am number 1 on my list. That sounds harsh to me....inconsiderate, selfish, etc... etc.. etc....

Well So be it. I guess that is what I will have to think I am until I finally get it through to MYSELF that I need to give to myself first, to be a better MOM, a better wife, A better ME.

I do not need to get up and start laundry right away, and my 10th grader can make her own lunch if need be. I need to start with a cup a coffee and WORK OUT. Other people get up and start at 4:30 a.m. I can show up at 5:00 a.m. I always say, I never have enough time, I am too tired after work and yesterday...was no exception.

THIS WEIGHT IS NOT COMING OFF doing my half baked routine any longer. I CAN'T KEEP doing the SAME THING! I need to get with it! :) I have HAD IT with this nonsense.

When I used to be successful with two little itsy bitsy kids...I got up and worked out at 5:00 a.m. I knew I had to...because I accepted the fact my kids were tiny and they would need my attention. Today ...Sigh I get side tracked every single morning. Not this morning. Not any more.

I got to go...workout.

    It's not selfish to think of yourself...putting you first with your weight loss and healthy lifestyle shows that you are worth it, and believe me girl, YOU are worth it!!!

    This is sooooo true!! It seems so selfish putting ourselves first but for this journey to be successful, that's exactly what we have to do! I struggle with at times too. I just remind myself that I will be that much better for my loved ones, when I am healthier.

    Why is it so hard for us to take time for ourselves? No one else is going to take care of us, so we just have to do it. In a way, we are doing this for our family. We have to be healthy and happy so that we have the health and energy and emotional strength to cope with the many challenges that being a mother and wife brings our way.
    You can do this! It is hard, but you can do it!
