Are You As Busy As You Think You Are?

Sunday, November 04, 2012

A couple of Sundays ago DH, DS, DIL and I were sitting around the table after dinner and I asked for help. I felt like I had too much on my plate, busy all the time and not getting things done that I wanted to do. DS asked me what my priorities are. That made me stop and think about what I am actually doing and what is most important to me.

I won’t give you the list that I came up with but loosing weight and being healthy was up there close to the top. So I am putting what I eat and don’t eat and exercise second on my list of things to do every day. Staying within my calorie range comes before any sweets, not that I ate a lot of sweets but I would have a treat every day, one that was not high in calories. It has made a big difference. The scale is going down and not roller-coastering.

I found an article this morning that you might be interested in reading Are You As Busy As You Think You Are? Here is the link to it.

We can do this if we make it a priority.

    Yes, indeed! Good point! Our action show what are priorities truly are ... It's easier to talk about losing than to make healthy choices. Only one of those will bring results!

    I totally understand about the treats. Somehow I think I can't go a day without a treat. I've really got to get out of that habit because I am not on the losing side anymore. I have gained about 5 pounds over the past couple of months and I really don't like that. I've got to get things under control. It has been particularly hard the past couple of weeks with company and hunting. It will be good to get back into a routine for a while.

    Awesome blog! I say I have no time to do things, but I know it's an excuse. I waste time, procrastinate, and all those things, when I need to get down to business. Thanks for the kick in the pants. I'll be making my own time sheet this week to see just how many hours I waste. I've done this before, and it has helped in the past. I need to prioritize and get things done again.

    Back to my "busy is not the same as active". Still have the same hours in the day but spend a lot less of them sitting. Get up earlier to compensate for my computer time and READING, SEWING, NEEDLEWORK, have been replaced with LISTENING TO BOOKS WHILE WORKING OUT, WALKING SUGAR, HOOPING, AND YOGA. Do I miss the other? Sometimes, and I use them for a break but they are no longer a priority!

    That was a really great blog and an interesting article. I know I spend too much time on the Computer and need to improve the amount of time I spend exercising; I may try that time and motion study just to see where my time is spent. I imagine it will be an eye opener, especially if you calculate the amount of time spent sitting at work, home, watching TV,etc. emoticon

    Good blog. I too didn't think I'd be able to find more time for more exercise, let alone tracking food intake and since I've made it my priority it's all fallen into place.. sure some days the floor doesn't get swept until later in the day, but it doesn't really matter! Thanks for sharing.
