Balance. No cutesy way of saying it.

I work out about an average of 5 days a week nowadays. I love it, but trust me...this is not a brag. Read on, you'll soon understand. 

As much as I truly LOVE my work out schedule, lately it seems like I've been taking time from other important duties in order to continue in my goals. 

Is that a bad thing? Yes and no. 

The problem that led me into obesity in the first place was not keeping my health and weight management as a priority. Now, it's become an intentional part of my day. This is good. This is very good. I make absolutely no apologies for this. 

The problem comes in when other important things, or even people, are neglected as a result of a new found priority. Prioritizing is not negligence. It's simply giving everything of importance the appropriate time and resources it needs to remain healthy; whether it's a relationship, diet, career, or whatever. 

In this I offer no clear cut solution, because truly I have none. We can't create time, but it's our job to manage it. There is no doubt. We need divine guidance.
Lord please help me to prioritize you above all else, and to spend my time in the way that would give you the most glory.
