So, I wanted to be like Nicole and post a day late! Kidding. I swore I would sit at my computer when I got home last night and blog, but that didn’t happen. I was in recovery from attack of the termites.
TimeHave you ever thought about how much time it takes to be healthy? Think about the time you spend at the gym, prepping food, logging calories and workouts, blogging, posting on Facebook, and eating for goodness sake (for those 5 meal a day-ers). While I’m not saying that it’s a bad thing, I’m just saying that this is a true testament of how being healthy is a life style.
If you aren’t willing to sacrifice time to be healthy, you might as well go to Wendy’s and have that cheese burger. You will save time prepping, cooking, and having another meal in 3 hours. I mean really, think about it. We say that bodies are made in the gym and kitchen but it’s also made on a watch. If you can’t sacrifice 30 minutes a day to get walk/documenting/meal prep in, what’s the point? It’s like, full monty or sit on the sofa.
I know that I am QUEEN of the slackers. I don’t LIKE to work out. I do slightly enjoy jogging but I’m not consistent. If there’s an excuse, I will find it. Do I want it? Yes. Was I willing to do it? Yes. But have I been making the time? Clearly, no.
This has GOT to stop. When I look in the mirror, I don’t like what I see. I hate what I see. Shannon made a good point that we are not just numbers and while that’s true, we are what we choose to be. It’s time for me to CHOOSE to be healthy. It’s time for me to CHOOSE to work out. It’s time for me to CHOOSE to change.
I CHOOSE TO BE HEALTHY!
