Nothing Like Friends
Saturday, April 29, 2017
Today I was blessed to have my hubby and little sis join me at the gym. They pushed me and I pushed them. We are all striving for the same goal, to be overall healthier. We follow similar diets and hold each accountable.
I enjoyed the company today, although I still like my solo workouts. There's nothing quite like putting your headphones in and shutting the world out. To me it's peaceful. I can run as long as I want to. I can lift what I feel is comfortable. I'mgoing to keep going to the gym with them once or twice a week, but make sure I sneak off for at least one solo workout. I hope they understand.
One of the challenges I've been facing is meeting the needs of my enormous family, while also getting the things I need. Sometimes that means cooking three dinners in one night, while other times it means my workout for the day consists of housework. In a perfect world everyone would eat what I eat and give me the space I need. But with three year old twins and an autistic 12 year old, not to mention the 3 other kids I claim, that's just not my life. We are working on getting exercise that involves the kids, like jumping on the trampoline with them or running around at the park. It's nice. It used to be just sitting on a bench watching from the sidelines. Now we are involved in the game of tag. I look forward to what the future holds for my family, instead of dreading them asking me to play some exerting game. Life is Good.
The world will not change for you, but that doesn't mean you have to change for the world.
