Chapter 6 - Day 8 - Create Time and Energy
Friday, September 04, 2015
I had my initial weigh-in in May for employee health at my job. My BMI was slightly "overweight." They had measured me at an inch less than last year! I don't really think I shrank and inch, but oh well? What can ya do?
If I lost the weight I needed to lose to get back to "normal," I would get $350 back on my insurance vs. $300. Still a lot of money...but I knew I had to buckle down and get that extra MONEY!
Weighed in today...and BAM! I am there! Thank you CBT and Beck!
Eating healthy does require a lot of time and energy...but it is so worth it. I'm at a good stage in my life. Kids are grown and doing well, just hubby and me, we both work, and we are healthy.
It's easier to make time for healthy eating now than it was when we had 3 in diapers and both of us working. The demands of parenthood and life are hard. I feel for the younger gals...balancing kids and jobs.
I wish I had made better choices for our meals when my children were under my care. It was so much easier to run for the 2 for 1 pizza specials than to cook. Regretting that now.
The exercise in this chapter is valuable to help find extra time. I discovered that I have more time in the mornings than I realized for food prep. I don't HAVE to be at work 30 minutes early! On-time is good enough!
