Reason #1

Time.

In the last few weeks things in my life (job, social, projects, family, etc.) started really picking up and I noticed that it was harder to eat right and exercise.  It’s not that I had overwhelming cravings or feelings of laziness, but certain things demanded the time that I would have spent cooking at home or working out.  Social events especially require quite a bit of planning for them to be successful.  I don’t know if there will ever be a day when I can just show up at a BBQ and not plan ahead to opt for the veggies instead of potato salad, or chicken instead of burgers.

And so, the first reason that I am fat is because I have not allowed myself the time to think through my actions and find the activities and food that will benefit my long-term well-being.  I like how Mike puts it in his post today, making the “time to be honest”.  I spent a lot of my time doing other things.  And in fact, channeling my inner Scarlett O’Hara, I often said to myself, “I’ll worry about it tomorrow”.

Tomorrow is here and this journey takes time.  Time that I would have spent working more hours, shopping, eating restaurant prepared foods, or watching tv.  I’ve lost time and weight so far in this journey.
