I'm going to just accept that I have moved beyond needing to track every bit of exercise. It's safe to say that it is a habit, part of my life. I've been busy picking up extra classes at the gym. I've started subbing in schools again. I've been so busy I've had to turn down a week's worth of sub jobs, at least. I'm definitely entering a new stage. Certified group fitness instructor/substitute public school teacher, which in theory will allow me to have some flexibility for volunteering like the crazy overachieving mother I seem to be. I'm past the calm relaxing part of parenthood. The baby days, the toddler days. Fewer lazy days with my kids. But with their growing up we have more fun adventurous opportunities as a family. I'm grateful for my husband and how hard he works for our family. I'm grateful for the past decade we've had each other. His love is a blessing. I'm grateful for his support. His willingness to have me be a stay at home mom, and take on the role as sole breadwinner. His love for me and our kids. He's a good man. I'm grateful that I can help him now, that I am able to return to work, that I went to college before having kids. I'm grateful for his friendship and that we can work as a team. I'm grateful for my life and health. I'm grateful that my life can evolve thus far without my happiness and feelings of contentment and peace negatively impacted (too much). I'm grateful for a warm bed. And it's about that time, too. Good night.
