Relevance & importance

Yesterday I was browsing Facebook and as usual, the news feed popped up & for some reason a specific post caught my attention. The post was something about using tanning beds and what one lady would tell herself at age 16. I knew exactly along the lines with the warning of using tanning beds and so forth. I automatically thought, "what a stupid post, I'll tan if I want to tan!". However, as I thought about it more, I was curious about what made me even think someone else's post was so absurd that I would think that exact thought. By no means am I the "every single day tanner" I do jump in the tanning bed once a week to keep color. Some of you may gasp at that thought and want to send mail with all the warning signs of why I shouldn't tan... But you can save the hate mail because this is the thought that I came to after a good hard cardio session... My thought came because those facts aren't IMPORTANT to me. They are irrevevlent to me. I haven't had skin cancer like the woman who made the video about the warning signs of tanning. Then it occurred to me, How many people hate or are annoyed by my several fitness posts and quotes? Granted, yes, they could always unfollow me on twitter or delete me as a friend on Facebook but the bottom line is people tweet and post on Facebook what is IMPORTANT to THEM. &&& what's important to them usually come from each of our own experience. Eating clean and workouts are IMPORTANT to me and I make time for them. Once being a girl weighing in at 195lbs as a 6th grader and that following me up into my college years, I KNOW I never want to be like that again. I will make time to fight against obesity. But this also brings me to the question of why I workout at 5am and then again in the evening. Why do I teach 4 spin classes and still workout ontop of those workouts. It's because it's important to me. So for the person who tells me, "I can't do morning workouts", "I can't workout twice a day", "I can't give up soda", "I have to have my afternoon candy bar".... And the excuses go on and on. In conclusion.... If you WANT it, you'll do it... If NOT, you'll ONLY make excuses! This week I challenge you to evauluate what you have kept making an excuse for a decide if it's important to you or not. Decide to either MAKE IT HAPPEN, or stop whining... It's time we take actions for the desires and goals we have in mind. If you need help, find an accountability partner to really guide you! BeBlessed
