Making Me a Priority

It dawned on me today that one of the reasons for my success with weight loss and fitness is that I made myself a priority. More specifically, I made achieving my life changing goals a priority. This meant becoming a morning person, not going out to dinner with friends when it didn't fit my eating schedule, or forgoing Friday night festivities because I had to get up early the next day for a morning training run.

I've spent most of my life taking care of the needs of others, and it was finally time to take care of myself. I may have gone to an extreme with this at first, and now I'm learning to find a better balance, but I think it was necessary to bring about the change I needed. Now it is a part of my life and I can better juggle the needs of others with my own.

As the title of my blog implies, this was a lifestyle change which required adjustments to all parts of my life. Even though I've lost the extra weight and I'm in the best shape of my life, my journey is not over. I am always in search of the next challenge, and I will have to make constant adjustments to find balance in my life and be the best person I can be.
