I can't tell you how many times I hear people commend me for what I do and then say they jus don't have the time for it. Drives me crazy! It's all about making time for yourself and making yourself a priority! Just thought this was a great motivator :)

I just always want to tell them if *I* can find the time, they can find the time.  I work full time... my husband works nights so I have 3 kids 8 and under by myself... I have to clean, cook, laundry, all that jazz... and I still carve around an hour out of each day to work out.  Sure, I don't read as much as I used to, I don't crochet as much, I hardly ever watch TV, but what I'm doing is more important than all of that anyway.

It's so true!! Illness and fatigue take up so much more time than working out!
It sucks that it's so hard to get that initial oomph to actually START moving. Once the pendulum is swinging, it's not so bad, but that initial push is always tough. I wish I could get this post into DH's head.

I once complained that healthy food was so expensive and my friend pointed out all the money i'd be spending on health care and medications and wouldn't it be better spent preventing instead of fixing! Yes!! lol

I love this! I once had a friend tell me that she doesn't have time to do it and she'd have no one to leave her boys with. I promptly told her they have gyms that charge $10/month that ALSO have child care. She didn't have a response for that. then again, this is the woman that buys into these iced teas that burn fat. I feel bad when she posts she's lost 26 pounds because I know she'll gain it all back eventually.
