Today is my boys' (both - one 2 one 4) big birthday party so this is going to be quick. I was looking through some blog postings and articles on babyfit.com and came across an article every single mother should read.
So many of us do not exercise because we can't find the right time or it is not convenient. Well, when is anything convenient once you are a mom? This woman has the perfect mindset of getting in her exercise when she can and doing it no matter what. I hope you read her post, print it out and put it on your mirror. Click Here.
We are so spoiled with convenience these days that so few of us do anything that isn't. We have grocery stores within 3 minutes of us, remote controls with everything, drive thrus just about everywhere and pre-packaged, pre-cut fruits, veggies and meals that are 5 times the cost of what they should be, but we buy them because they are "convenient". I am just as guilty. Well, sometimes life gets in the way and not everything is convenient. Sometimes we just have to work outside of our little bubbles to get what we need or do what we need to do. If it is truly important enough to you, you should find a way to fit it in. Read her post and get motivated. Run in the rain, run in the dark, or run on a trampoline during nap time if that is what it takes.
