Do you ever feel like you are losing control? I know I do. It's especially true in our fast-paced lives, don't you think? In a generation of jugglers it is easy to lose control. We have to juggle family, spirituality, careers, fitness, food, and work entertainment in somewhere. If any one of these becomes imbalanced our world can topple and we end up out of kilter within our own selves. We struggle to get back in charge of our person and personal lives.
This weekend, I decided to take myself back. Mostly this decision pertained to my eating plan. I'm supposed to be on a strict diet, but it's so difficult sometimes. Fast foods are well, faster, easier and more convenient. Once I cheat, it seems it begins to spiral down until I am totally out of control.
I've said before that you are the MVP (most valuable player) in the story of your life. It'll all play out based on your decisions. This holds true even if you decide to give the decision-making over to someone else. Well, this weekend, I decided to put myself back in charge of myself. I cooked healthy, ate healthy and feel much better from the inside out. I'm glad I made that choice.
Take a few minutes to think about who you are putting "in charge" of your health? Is it your kids? Your spouse or significant other? Decide to take back the reigns and be your own boss again. Don't let others make the decisions that affect your health. You are the only one who can decide to workout, eat right for you, and maintain a healthy perspective on life.
You are In Charge! Wear it well!
