For the past few weeks I’ve been working out pretty consistently. I do miss days here and there but unlike before, a cold or family crisis isn’t enough to keep me from coming back. Each class I attend lasts for approximately one hour. While I could think of a million things I could do during that hour I also realize that each day time slips away regardless of what I am doing. So I decided the least I could do was invest an hour into myself. It’s led by a supportive trainer and filled with kind encouraging students and the best part — I get to bring my baby so while I can’t use “I have my baby with me” as an excuse not to work out, I also don’t have to worry about leaving her behind since I still tend to struggle with that. Now that summer is here both my girls go with me which means my daughters get to learn the importance of self-care not just by my words but my actions. But they aren’t the only ones benefiting from my exercise regimen. My husband and I are too – and in particular our marriage.
