Ain't nobody got time for that!

Isn't it funny how we can make time for things that we really want to do? On Sunday my family and i went out to dinner and we ran into an old friend whom we hadn't seen in a while. Like a lot of people in buffet lines we stood there holding plates and catching up on families and what's new. Our friend then remarked how i had lost weight and looked good. To which i replied,"thank you." She then asked,"now did you do it on your own or did your doctor make you do it". Hmmm..a couple of things went through my mind after i said,"well no i decided it was time to change." Was she saying that i was big enough that my doctor probably thought it was in my interest to do so? Or, at one point are we going to make a change before we are TOLD we have to make a change for the sake of our life?
Everybody has got stuff to do! Most people can't say,"oh today i have nothing to do all day long."
Let me ask you a question? How important are you to you? Do you think your worth good health? Sure you are..we all are. But we make time for the things that we want to make time for. If the decision to work out and eat better came down to life or death from the mouth of a doctor do you think you'd have a problem MAKING time for excercise and a better diet? Of course not! I think we'd all be in the gym and at least trying to stay away from soo much fried food and candy bars. Make time for what's important today, because "aint nobody got time for that", is not an excuse if we want to have a better quality of life. Peace and Love!


  1. The truth is that we do what is important to us. No more and no less. That's a hard pill to swallow because accepting that exposes our own culpability. Like you said, basically, these are my arms, my legs, my middle (lol) and I have the swing vote. Walking, running, lifting are an active choice made on a daily basis. Are my health and well being important enough for me to choose"me" today? So far, so good the answer is yes more often than not. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

  2. Yes! I agree! It's not easy but it must be done for US. Decisions come down to what do we really want to accomplish?Let's try to keep on saying Yes.
