Today my Dad put up the punching bag for me. When asking for my family's opinion on where to put it, my sister's reaction when my dad asked her was "Oh God". She wanted to put it quite close to the wall. My dad stopped that by saying that it needed swinging room when it gets hit. "But I don't imagine Ashley would be able to hit it that hard". Ouch! That comment stung- a lot. I can actually hit quite hard.
Next thing my mom brought up: both her and my dad want to get rid of our weight machines and instead put in its place our free weights. What would my sister and I think of that they wanted to know? My sister couldn't care less. I'd miss it! When I mentioned that but went on to say that if they wanted to I guess it'd be okay my mom replied "Ashley's really into this eating well and fitness thing".
1st off it's not a thing. It's a lifestyle. My mom herself asked me for help in losing her "pot" as she calls it. Yet every time I ask her if she wants to workout while I'm getting my time in, her answer is No. So now I'm gonna let her come to me. When she wants to get a workout in, I will gladly be her slave driver. 2nd of all, the comments...really sting. Insert sarcasm* Thanks a lot for the encouragement, family. Thanks for being soooo helpful.
