I fully admit that I sometimes look at my friends and think “you have it so easy”. Whether it’s because they only have one child, or their parents are still alive and play an active role in their life, or perhaps it is because they have a great job they love that pays the bills. I know I should not think this way, but many times I do. :/
The truth is, we all have our own hurdles and struggles. No one is spared from sadness or disappointment in life and the key factor in our happiness is our reaction to these struggles.
Does my life sometimes suck? Absolutely.
But I also have many, many things to be thankful for and right now I am working on focusing on those.
Does fitness come easy to me? Not really. I work hard….I struggle….. and sometimes I fail.
My workout on Monday about killed me because I definitely indulged a little bit over the weekend.
Yesterday I brought my tire out in the 100 degree heat for an impromptu workout while my kids played nearby. Again, I felt weak and out of shape, even though I know that really isn’t the case. My mind was trying to take over and get me to quit, but I chose to ignore that nonsense.
Young eyes were watching me and cheering me on. At one point, my 5 year old told me I was too strong for that small tire. (what a wonderful kid!)
There is no quitting.
There are far too many other fun things to do, like these! People ask me about step ups and how to do them without a bench—-well, here you go!
Want more fun workouts like these? Let me know!
Hope you are having a FIT and fun week!
