When I started blogging, I did it with the intention of posting at least once a week. It seemed a totally realistic goal. It’s only a few hours out of my week doing something that I enjoy.We all start with good intentions, but, as with so many other things in life, things often get in the way. Work stress, commitments to friends and family, chores and errands, sleep (remember sleep? That thing you’re supposed to spend 8 hours doing every night?). commuting, and everything else that makes up our days end up consuming so much of our time that we tend to push back other things that are important to us and make us happy. My blog has been my pushed-aside priority for the past few weeks. Raise your hand if fitness has been yours.
When we’re stressed out and busy, exercising and eating well is usually one of the first things on our list of priorities to fall by the wayside. Who has time to dedicate to fitness when you’ve running around all day, taking care of things at work, shuffling kids around, making dinner, returning phone calls, etc? Life has gotten so fast-paced, and it’s easy to get caught up in the hustle. But how can you expect to give your very best to everything else in your life when you give yourself nothing? The best output requires good input, and the best input you can give yourself is health – eating well, working your body, and getting enough rest. (Remember, it’s easier than you might think).
