This weekend taught me a few things.
1.) If I say I’m going to watch what I eat and exercise more, I’ll watch myself eat my weight in fried shrimp and browse through Netflix all day.
2.) I shouldn’t drink alcohol (other than my once a week wine night… holla!). It makes me lazy and more prone to skipping out on other important things.
3.) I do a lot of talking but not enough following through. I need to work hard on that one.
4.)I have to learn the difference between priorities, distractions, and excuses. I need to put my heart into the things that matter.
My family should be my number one PRIORITY. Followed closely by my health (and sanity). Followed not-so-closely by everything else.
Hello, Downton Abby. Okay, fine, so I shouldn’t be so specific. Anything that isn’t family or fitness related could probably fall into the category of DISTRACTION.
So, I have to be honest here. I don’t usually use alcohol as an EXCUSE for anything. This weekend, though, I totally did. I just didn’t feel like working out. Other potential excuses? Too Busy. Too Tired. Bad Weather. You name it.
I’ve been feeling increasingly “pulled” lately. Pulled from home. Pulled from the moment. I need to take a step back and really evaluate what is important to me. I need to make those things the priorities. I’ve alluded to changes in the job front, blogging, and various other aspects of my life lately.
I honestly don’t really know what is going to change. I just know that something has to give. I love my family. I love running. I love blogging. I don’t love realizing that I haven’t been showing that lately.
