I need to get healthy. At this point in time the only exercise I am getting is walking to and from my car and my photo shoots. I know I am not getting enough exercise and I know I need to eat better. My problem is, right now I have so much on my plate (yeah yeah har har) how am I supposed to make my health a priority as well?
Right now my #1 priority over everything is going to work which is only 40 hours a week but I also commute 10-15 hours every week as well. I realize Iâ€™ve mentioned this like 1,365 times but hey, itâ€™s a part of my everyday life. I canâ€™t get away from it so neither can you.
Iâ€™m also working on photography which is incredibly consuming but also emotionally draining most of the time. If Iâ€™m not working on pictures and stressing if they are good enough Iâ€™m working with a client to setup another photo shoot or Iâ€™m just trying to figure out how to get by with the equipment I have, which is clearly lacking. Itâ€™s very hard to work on photos on my laptop when itâ€™s constantly overheating and slowing down.
Then of course there is our financial situation, which is constantly in a downward spiral it seems. Right now we are deciding what bills to pay. Do we pay our mortgage? Do we pay our electricity? Do we choose over all to be able to eat and put gas in our cars? We canâ€™t do all 3, that is for sure.
On top of all this I realize my health is in a bad state. I have not gained any weight in like 6 months or something but I havenâ€™t lost any either. I donâ€™t know how to fit in exercise when I canâ€™t afford a gym and outside is hotter than hell. Working out inside is impossible when you canâ€™t afford to run your air conditioner and your house is just too small to bounce around in.
So it sucks that I just canâ€™t seem to put the effort in to eating the right foods and taking bike rides. I know I have to figure out a way to make it a priority but I just donâ€™t know how to do it without completely losing my head in the process.
