Building a better relationship with my family

Sunday, January 20, 2013

I've been committed to changing my life for a few weeks now and I have been able to get the most positive thing out of it...more time with my family. When I am working out, my kids, especially my son, want to be a part of it. The kids love to do just dance with me and my son will come downstairs with me and we take turns on the elliptical and treadmill. My hubby likes to come watch me on the treadmill! They are participating in mealtime, helping make the salad for dinner and choosing different things for dinner. It's really exciting for me. I used to be that mom that wanted to lay around and watch tv and not do a whole lot, now that's all changing and I am absolutely so grateful for this time with them. Thanks for taking the time to read this, I hope you all have a great day :)

    How exciting for you. My husband used to just sit back and watch me never thinking that he should join in. Now he has given up his nightly ice cream, started working out regularly and actively making healthy meals, WOO HOO for families!!

    Thanks for sharing. You are lucky to have support in your effort. My husband enjoys seeing the new me, down 30+ pounds last year and working out, but does not share in the exercise. I have joined a fitness club and made friends. That helps. Have fun.
