WE all need balance in our life. It is a constant struggle and juggling
act. Between the demands of work, family, health and wellness, and the
other stuff that makes up our lives, face it its just tough. I find it
easier to workout on the weekdays after my day job and do all my
emailing, blogging and paperwork stuff early in the morning. It works
for me. I have 5 calendars that sync with my phone and I always have a
schedule to adhere to. We do need time to as I call it "Decompress" and
just do nothing. Either alone or with a loved one. You need to make this
a priority. Read a book and listen to music by the fire or do something
that makes YOU happy. Just you!
Along these same lines you need to balance your portion sizes of what you ingest into your body. If you log your food or journal what you eat, ask your self this question. What is a serving size based on the packaging? Are you using measuring cups and a food scale? You're eyes tend to make things look smaller than they really are and you really need this as a gut check to keep you accountable. If you eat a bowl of Cheerios right after dinner or an hour latter that is fine. But really how much are you eating? 3 times the serving size?????? You have to measure and keep everything in balance and keep everything in moderation. Log your food, measure your food, include everything, eat wisely and increase your intensity of your workouts. Longer does not mean better or more. You need time to balance the rest of your life. THIS IS THE BEST 20 BUCKS YOU WILL EVER SPEND. TRUST ME.
