As I continue to ponder “timing” of a different kind than I referred to yesterday, I am quite amazed. I was one of those people that spent years using the same old excuse of “I don’t have time.” I have always had a plethora of excuses, but time was an excuse I wore out! A new workout plan? No, thanks… I don’t have time. Cooking in a healthier way?…No thanks…. I don’t have time.

At this point in my life, I am probably busier than I have ever been. I am a mother of two…I am going to college…. I work several part-time jobs… I am engaged and planning a wedding… I serve when possible at my church….and of course, I blog. =) How is it that when I would put in a full day before, all I had the strength and energy to do was come home, sit in front of the TV on the couch and pretty much not move until bed time? I thought I had “no time” for exercise or preparing healthy meals. As busy as I am now, I spend much more time taking care of myself than I ever did before. No, I’m not talking about trips to the spa…lol… I’m talking about making sure I work out regularly and eat clean. These daily choices allow for my life to be so much more productive! I have tons more energy and clarity in my thoughts and I love it!

So, oh yeah, I have the time…and I will use it wisely! Thank you God for each and every day!

    Hi! It’s Richele from Families.com! I am SOOO excited for you! I too am considered obese and looking forward to just being overweight. Sounds so silly, huh? I never thought overweight would be an achievement…but sticking to your goals and seeing it through is true victory. Maybe those of us seeking faith and fitness should start a little support group or prayer chain.

    Ah yes, time. Funny how the committed always have time, while the unmotivated never have time… I’ve been the latter, but am turning into the former at long last.
