I think this is a great topic because it does affect so many of us. As women, wives, sisters, daughters, mothers, and friends, we put everyone else first. We want to take care of those around us, but we forget to take care of ourselves. That was the big difference for me this time too, was to put myself first sometimes. Not to let anything interfere with my workout time in the mornings. I had even been doing some work in our church office a few mornings a week and I quit doing it when it started interfering with my workout time. There are just times when we have to put ourselves first and take care of ourselves or we aren't good to take care of anyone else.
Someone reminded me once that when you're on an airplane and they're giving you the takeoff instructions, they tell you that if the air mask comes down, you put yours on first and then you put your them on your children. If you don't take care of yourself first, then you may not be any good to help them and I think that sometimes we have to apply this to other areas of our lives as well.
