Last two days were super busy for me.
How busy? Yesterday I had a handful of walnuts for lunch, and for dinner we went to Subway for Veggie Delight, came home just to take a quick shower and dropped in bed.
I did go to one hour yoga class, though.
Today wasn't better. I woke up at 6 AM and realised that I don't have time for the gym today at all. This didn't sound promising. As I prepared breakfast, I twisted and turned today's schedule in my head with no positive results.
But that wasn't good enough for me. I set down and put everything I had to do on a piece of paper and twisted and turned it again. Seriously, I did literally turn that piece of paper around a few times and then... yes!
There was a 30 minutes window, and if I move that task for the lunch time, I can squeeze in a trip to the gym!
And that's exactly what I did and was happy to have 50 minutes of aqua fitness.
I pumped myself with endorphins and was ready to fly all day, performing whatever was left on that schedule.
What I am saying is this: we are all busy, have many chores to do, goals to achieve, books to read, TV-shows to watch.
But it is only my responsibility to be healthy and to do something for that, without looking for excuses:
MAKE that time to exercise (as I usually say, no one will put my running shoes on and run or walk for me, it has to be me!)
MAKE a healthy food choices (once again, I compare my body to my car. I love my little Barcelona Red Corolla. I don't fill it with junk, I make sure it is well maintained). Why my body then is neglected sometimes?
This example with my car became a simple but significant turning point in the way I treat myself.
So, my friends, give yourself permission to be healthy and happy, and lets Move It!
Until next time,
