Tomorrow is no longer an option; the time is now!

Sunday, September 20, 2015

This is my new mantra: Tomorrow is no longer an option; the time is now! For weeks, months, years, I have been waiting for the perfect time to get healthy. I know I have even blogged about here before. And of course I have figured out a long time ago that there is no perfect time.

However, I have to finally accept, that I have to do whatever it takes NOW. There will always be appointments, meetings, interruptions (good and bad), but I cannot use these things as an excuse any longer.

Let's see, just this past month there was: jury duty, back-to-school night, car trouble, unexpected visitors (several times), my husband's birthday, my daughter's dance performances, school fundraisers, doctor's appointments, other meetings, and worst of all, very hot temperatures (many days of triple digits!)

And yet, these are the things of life. I cannot wait to have nothing on the calendar before I make healthy choices.

So, no matter what, I have to begin NOW! I have waited for tomorrow way too long. It is no longer an option.

    Its the only way. I found out as well, that if you wait for the "right" time its never going to come. It's time to put your self first . I think you will find that once you get on track and begin to feel better with your choices and find yourself changing that your own priorities will sit farther on top of the list of your to-do list. If you are feeling better and have a better self image the rest will all be easier.
    I'm here with you.... together we can do this!! emoticon emoticon
