Exercise Commitment

Tuesday, October 14, 2014

My husband confessed to me as we drove home from the gym in the pouring rain (it has been raining since last night and the roads have huge puddles everywhere!) that he would not have ventured out had it not been for me and the Pilates class I take. ( I really hate to miss a class because I lose so much precious ground in a week's time but if he had said he didn't want to go, I would have stayed home.) I also ran on the treadmill after the class. We are so glad that we support each other and nudge each other along when one of us wants to just relax at home. We have also discussed what we would do if one of us becomes unable to go to the gym. We would have to stay strong and keep working out without each other. He had a heart attack when he was in his early 50s and I had my huge bout with cancer later; we know what it is like to have a major disruption in our routines.

    That's so great that you have that support right there beside you all the time. Unfortunately, my sister and I aren't such good supports. If one of us gives even a hint that we don't want to go, the other caves in also. Gotta get my groove on!
