I have come to call my working out my "selfish" time. It is the time I set aside for just me, to focus on me, to better me. While it benefits my whole family, I truly am doing this for me. This outlook helps me focus and remember what is important.
It helps me to clear my head, and work around problems and obstacles and be free from cell phones, computers, instant messaging, etc. It is a place where I can clear my mind, heart, and soul and when I come back home I feel so refreshed and proud that I took the time for me!
