I understand that most peoples lifestyles do not allow them to train the way I do now. It is very time consuming and expensive but I didn't always do it this way. I remember starting AA for the first time and not having a drivers license. I threw that little one year old in a bike seat and off we went to the gym everyday. It cost 20 bucks a month. I got into really great shape and felt very accomplished and proud. You can totally do it too....I promise. Later after a few more alcoholic bouts (you see we are very stubborn and it takes some of us a while...LOL) I got my shit together. I started going to globo gym here and there but was bored. I luckily found CrossFit a few years ago and I certainly was not bored with that. It really helped ignite my fire for fitness again. I took Emma with me when I had to and she was probably around 7 years old at the time. Now that she was older and saw me lifting she got interested as well. We lucked out and found Coach C and before we knew it she was ranked 2nd in the nation in Olympic weightlifting and travels all over to compete. She loves gymnastics as well and I think it is a great combo. She stays busy and it is very good for her. She has learned a great deal about accountability. She is responsible beyond her years. She understands that if you put a bunch of crap fuel in, crap performance comes out and you do not feel well. You see they are watching and they either see you sitting on the couch eating bon bons and watching Honey Boo Boo ( I totally watch that train wreck, just sayin) or they see you getting out and being active, feeling good and having fun. It is NOT SELFISH to want to be healthy and have healthy kids. It is NOT SELFISH to want to be able and get out and do fun activities with your kids. It is NOT SELFISH to want to be around to play with your grand kids.
Negatives: I WAS SICK!!!!!!!!!! OMG I don't know what the hell I had but I HAVEN'T EATEN IN DAYS!!! I felt horrible and just kept thinking, " I'm losing weight OH NO!!! I'm losing beautiful muscle!!!! AHHHHHHH!!!!". I am finally feeling better. Whew!!!
Take some time for yourself and HAVE A GREAT WEEK!!!
