I will overcome

Thursday, May 12, 2011

I love riding my bike but,its gotten old and rusty and I plan to get another one with my mothers day gift card.My 16 year old Kayla thinks I'm crazy but,thats me.She hates to exercise and WONT!!But,i'm hoping she'll see me repeating all the CRAZY mom things I do and want to join me.Yesterday she said Mom,I dont mean no harm but you are not going to ride a bike at YOUR age,are you?YES I am I answered.She acts like the mom at times.She dont want me out walking,dont turn up the treadmill,slow my roll on the elliptical,you dont need a bike!!ARG!!!what am I to do?I will break down her wall eventually!because I love her I am not pushing the exercise on her!Advice anyone? emoticonSP!!!

    Everyone hates change, in one way or another. You no longer fit into her previous definition of "mom" in that you are no longer sedentary and predictable. This, in itself, is good, and progressive toward you becoming who you want to be, and being a mentor for how your daughter will someday deal with her own evolution of growing. Keep your trend, keep your momentum, and keep laughing at the nay-saying attitude along with keeping the offer open to join you. I also suggest that you try to give a verbal report on what she might have seen/experienced had she joined you. (I saw the most beautiful blooming forsythia. You missed a glorious sunrise! etc) Doesn't hurt to "accidentally forget" something 3 minutes into the journey and sneak back into the house to make sure she's not doing something she shouldn't be doing while you're on your walks or bike rides too. Knowledge is power, and priceless when it comes to keeping kids safe and on track.

    Me too. But today has been good, and I'm pre-planning my meals and exercise this week instead of just letting it happen. I need more self-discipline. Have a good week, and you will do it! emoticon

    You did NOT back slide because you didn't exercise. You had a legitimate reason i.e. taking care of your daughter. Believe me, there are going to be days you can't exercise. Even having an occasional meal at a fast food joint will not derail your efforts at weight loss and good health.

You don't have to be perfect to be healthy. Is your daughter okay ? Then that's more important. Tomorrow, you can resume your normal routine.

As I tell people, if you were to eat right 5 out of 7 days, you're still doing better than the average American.
