I've been thinking

Yesterday at WW we were talking about working out and why it's so hard. Basically why it's so easy to fall out of the habit of working out when it's so hard to keep the habit going. Some of the answers that came up were the typical; you have to make it non-negotiable; there's only so many hours in a day and so much to do; it's easier to not workout then to workout; etc. Nothing we all haven't heard or said before. It is a matter of changing your mindset but it's not easy and it is far too easy to change back. Anyway, one of the things that came up was the fact that we need to take time for ourselves, put ourselves first. I immediately thought to myself that I don't have any kids and there's really no one I put before myself. Ding!!! Wrong!!! Thanks for playing our game. It hit me. I put the animals first. I structure my life and my day around the animals. I get up at a certain time just to feed the birds. I will work on the computer just to keep Sammy company. I make 2 hours blocks in my day to take the dogs to the dog park. I will not want to be out at certain times because it's the dogs dinner time or some such nonsense. There is someone I put ahead of myself I just didn't realize it. Wow!! I'm not sure what I'm going to do about it. I'm not gone that long when I workout so I think all the animals will be just fine, but I need to change my mindset. Yes, they prefer when I'm around but they won't shrivel up and die if I'm not. Hmmm, interesting.... Something to think about.....
