Grow through it
Soo after being at the Day of Hope and hearing more about the importance of Olivia living an active life I decided I need to get my shit together and be the role model she needs. She may decide to love potato chips and be a couch potato one day but at least I can say I tried my best to teach her and not just preach to her.
I signed up for a month long boot camp and my ass hurts so bad and I am fully anticipating my abs hurting when I laugh. I have never been strong and my belly jiggles like a bowl full of jelly. I can only do 14 “real” sit ups in a minute, pathetic. And they make me do military push ups and NOT the girly version WTF? I also learned that a burpee isn’t a mispronunciation for burping a baby.
I am trying my hardest not to focus on the pain and constant burning in my gluteus maximus and instead focus on being the woman I want to be while being the mother I need to be. I need to be healthy and strong for my own life and my girls need to see healthy and active parents. So no matter how much I want to give up I’m choosing to focus on where I’m going and how my girls and our family will be better. I need to break old habits so my girls don’t have to work as hard as I do to create new habits.
No matter what we are growing through remember to focus on where we are going.
PS I don't ever intend to give up potato chips.
