It's Now About Me!
Tuesday, June 21, 2011
I just recently realized that I have always (and still do) put everything ahead of me. When my children were young, they came first....their wants and needs came before mine, and that part is ok with me. I have always taken being a mother seriously. I believe the needs of your children should come first! But I've done that with everything!!! Taking care of my husband always came before me.....taking care of my home has always come before me....my job has always come before me. I have found that I put things off (for me) because I always have other things that need to be done first.....how crazy is this!!! Having my house clean meant more to me than taking care of myself.
My eating habits were horrible....I'd eat when I had time, and by then I was so hungry that I ate too much or just ate junk, because it was quicker and I could get on with doing the important stuff. I know, RIGHT???? I know that the only reason I have so many medical problems is because of me....my being overweight (for so many years) has caused so many problems. At age 49 I had both my knees replaced....doctors told me that the extra weight I was carrying around has put too much stress on my body. I now have problems with my hips, problems with my feet, and I had to quit working in March because of problems with my back. Again, doctors have told me that the weight is a major factor in my health problems. OMG! Evidently, I don't take hints too well..... But at least my house is clean......yea, NOT FUNNY!!!
Well, today the world is given notice, Karen is taking care of Karen FIRST! My first goal EVERY day is to exercise, BEFORE anything else gets done. Unless you're gushing blood or dying, DON"T BOTHER ME!!!
I am REALLY looking forward to being selfish and doing more for me. Can't wait to see how I turn out!! Lol.
Have a wonderful day everybody......TAKE TIME FOR YOU!!!
