Putting Yourself Last Is Not Always A Bad Thing.

Two weeks ago I brought my son a treadmill and today my son called to tell me thank you, that I had probably saved his life!!!!!!.
He's a truck driver with no time to eat properly or exercise. Joined a gym never went a regular basis because after coming off the road he needed sleep. In the past year he has been diagnosed with sleep apena, high blood pressure and diabetes, all weight induced and he is only 29.
Well a couple of weeks ago I really got on him, and he said if he had a treadmill at home he would work out because no travel time would be involved. Going to the gym was adding another hour to his day before he could get some sleep. He said he was going to buy one when he got the money and I offered to buy one for him. My goal had been to have a treadmill in my house by October there went my treadmill..lol
i told him I was investing in him as well as my future grandchild as he needed to be around.
I believe he would have eventually gotten it together because he use to be very active. Plus ast some point he was going to get tired of me fussing at him about his weight....lol However, why put off what can be done today for tomorrow. He has been working out faithfully for the past two weeks. He said he has energy again and feels so much better. and thats makes Mama very very happy.....lol
So I'll have to wait a couple of more months to get my treadmill but I won't mind the wait at all.!!!!
