Well, I'm definitely feeling challenged right now. Not only from my excercise and eating program, but from my family.
For the most part they are very supportive of my quest for a healthy lifestyle. But recently, I'm feeling very alientated from them all.
I work two jobs, so 60 hours a week. I take three 1 hour bootcamp classes and two kickboxing classes a week and run 3 times a week with my daughter. In total, this is really only about 7-8 hours of excercise. Do I deserve this 7 hours a week dedicated to myself? I think so. But my family doesn't seem to think so anymore.
My kids are 20 and 15, so they aren't babies and have a lot going on in their own lives, yet they side with Dad, who is upset that I'm missing time at home sitting on the couch watching TV with him.
I am working the two jobs to save money to buy a house and help my family not to struggle. I work out for me. I feel torn. I feel a little unappreciated and frankly, am not sure what to do about it. I can tell you one thing though, I am NOT going to stop working out and getting healthy!
