finally back with the exercise

Friday, July 05, 2013

It has been so warm but mostly thundery with lots and lots of rain. Ended up with 5 days of none exercise, with the rain, the thunder and all the family visits and activities that went on. Gained back 4 pounds. I need to prioritize my exercise routine.

So for the last 2 days, I have been going for my bike ride as soon as I get up. Finally back in the routine. It feels good.

Even after 4 months of this, I still don't know how to put myself first. Because I am a mother? Because I am a woman? Because I was raised in a catholic environment? not sure but I need to know for a fact that it is not selfish to think of my well being by taking time to exercise.

I know we learn every day of our lives because when we don't learn anymore it is because we have achieve perfection and then we move on to another life. I know I am far from perfection but still, you would think that certain lesson are LEARNED after all this time.... Baby steps, baby steps...

    I believe from the beginning of time woman has been the care taker of her family. If we do not take care of us first we are not able to do the best for our family. I am glad you are back on track. Baby steps it is. One day at a time. Believe in yourself. God wants the very best for you.

    I think it's because women are never taught to put themselves first and for the most part we still raise the children, do the majority of the housework, cooking, laundry and grocery shopping. Glad to hear you are at the top of your priority list now.

    Good for you for getting back on track - so hard, no matter what your position in life, married, single . . .

    Early morning works best for me (and I don't have kids). I make sure I get my exercise in before the day gets away from me. Then if I get a later workout, that's gravy on the exercise train.
