I finally made the decision to go forward and not look back. I recommitted myself to a very important vow that I once made…
I renewed my vows with the Wii Fit.
When my husband bought me the Wii Fit last Christmas, I was so excited and happy! At first, I was very consistent with my dedication to exercising with the Wii Fit. I actually lasted six weeks before slipping from my everyday devotion to the Wii.
Then life started happening. I had company visit, I started doing a lot of writing (blogging, CWG assignments, online classes) and I was just “too busy” to remain devoted to the Wii Fit.
I decided to start back again with the Wii Fit when my husband deployed. My goal was to get my BMI back in the normal range by the time he gets back. But once again, more excuses came up as to why I couldn’t start right away. And they all are valid reasons:
- I was out of town
- I had company in town
- I reinjured my back
- I had writing deadlines
- The list goes on and on
It eventually comes down to this: I have to make time for things that are important in my life. Reflect with me on this quote:
Those who think they have not time for bodily exercise will sooner or later have to find time for illness. ~Edward Stanley
I need to get in shape. Besides, I’m a Public Health Educator and I know better.
My husband always tells me about how he is working out so he can look nice for me when he returns. I have no valid excuse as to why I can’t do the same for him.
So yesterday, I got back on my Wii balance board with a lot of things on my mind:
- My health – I have to take care of God’s temple.
- My son – I want to model a healthy lifestyle for him. He has to know that exercise is a good thing.
- My husband – He’s a long distance runner and I want to be able to run with him someday.
After I finished my workout, I felt so good! I actually lost two pounds from the last time I signed on…a great motivator for me to get back on track.
How do you make time for exercise?
