I have teenage children. Since they were born, they have been my priority. As it should be. Since I've become committed to health and fitness, I have made a decision to put myself first, at least a couple days a week. As much as I would like to, I will not sacrifice my classes at the gym to sit and watch a high school sporting event every night. Sure, I'll go an watch a little, a quarter or two, and show my support, but then I say I'm sorry gotta go. Your father is here to cheer you on.
Ok, Moms!! Don't freak out over this secret. I am still very supportive of my children. I still do a lot for them and I still support them when they have a game. I just don't go to every single game like I used to.

I often find I really don't want to get out there and exercise. Well, I found a trick that works like a dream. I allow myself to not want to and just get ready to go. Then if I still don't want to walk or run after my first lap or first stage of what I'm doing I allow myself to change it up or quit altogether. I've only changed my exercise once so I think this helps get me up and out!
