It's Flashback Friday YO!
I love this post. I am hearing this excuse left and right. Well I am too busy NOT to exercise. Exercising gives me more energy. It makes me able to do as much as I do...Just sayin...
"I'm too busy to exercise"
Hello Wonderful Bleeps! Happy Sunday.
Sunday's so much. They are my ReCharge Day. I start the day at
Church. Then I go to Starbucks for an unsweetened Green Tea (don't say
Blah just yet...I thought that too, but I honestly can't tell the
difference between sweetened and unsweetened now. It's all about
adjusting your body.). I usually read for a little while there and have
a sandwich. And then it's off to the gym. I'll knock out a couple of
hours before coming home and preparing my chili for the week. My
roommate LOVES Chili Sunday. The apartment smells so good. Big shout
out to the inventor of the Crockpot. I am your humble servant. Then I
head out for a church discussion for a couple of hours and enjoy my
pastry for the week (although we all know I just confessed to a cookie
yesterday...so I only had a half scone today). When I get home my body
and mind are relaxed and ready to take on the week.
often I have a bunch of things I want to talk about with you. I
remember back when I first started the blog I wrote two a day I had that
much to say. I still have that much, I just am trying not to drive you
crazy. Or myself. HaHa.
So where do I begin
tonight? Well tonight's discussion was about Simplifying Your Life.
Decluttering if you will. There is a director in Hollywood that got so
stressed in his life that one day he up and decided to make things
different. Instead of sitting in the rush hour and getting frustrated
he bought a bike and biked to work. He was able to enjoy that outside
and enjoy his ride to work. Then he decided to sell his mansion (where
he lived by himself) and bought a trailer. By getting rid of the things
in life that were weighing him down he was able to focus on what is
This is what I keep telling people. I'm so
tired of the excuse "I'm too busy to exercise". That's a load of crap.
You are responsible for your life and your schedule. You are too busy
because you want to be. Because it is easier to have that as an excuse
than to make the changes. Well here's the thing. I hate to break it to
you, but there is no magic pill. If you don't make the changes then
it's not going to change on it's own. It's not as if all of a sudden
your body is going to go "I'm tired of being fat. I'm going to be
skinny and healthy now." It doesn't work that way.
have to put in the time and effort to do it. It's your health for
goodness sake. What the heck is more important than that? Go ahead.
I'm listening. NOTHING is. If you have kids and you are shuttling them
around to events every night of the week that's great. But, if the
result is that you are taking years off of your life, I'm pretty sure
they would rather have that. If you are a work-aholic...well that's
gotta end. Is that really making you happy? Get out there and enjoy
Now I know that when I mention my workout
schedule people freak out about how much I go. "I couldn't possibly do
that." I'm not asking you to. But you have to make the time. If you
get an hour for lunch every day, TAKE IT. Walk. As a family do the Wii
fitness games together for an hour a night. Prepare meals for the week
on Sundays so that you aren't calling for pizza or stopping at
McDonalds. You just have to make the effort and step out of your
comfort zone. You got yourself into this mess and you've got to get
When you are treating your body better
you have so much more energy. You feel so much better about yourself.
Why would you not want to do that? Besides, if you are that stretched
thin you need the exercise for stress relief. It's a win win situation.
Love baby...it sucks. I'm sorry, but it's gotta be done. I've said it
before and I'll say it again. I did not get to 200 pounds because of
my extremely wise decisions, but I did lose the weight because of it.
Please come back tomorrow. I promise to be light and funny again. :-)
Have a Blessed
