It's all my fault.
Friday, June 26, 2015
A While back, I had posted a list of 4 goals I wanted to accomplish from choosing a healthier lifestyle.
They were all centered on long term goals, envisioning a life of health and being able to share it with those I loved.
I tossed the list during a period of my life when I felt as if I was not doing what I needed to do to accomplish them and the list was a reminder of what I couldn't do.
Before I attempt to locate it in a word document, there was one goal on that list which I remember without needing a reminder:
I wanted to be a good example for my family, my children so that DH and I would be able to grow old together and enjoy seeing them get married and have children of their own, making us active grandparents.
One recent day, my son shared with me that it was all my fault. He now liked Arnold Thins. In the past he had been resistant to even trying them. Now, he is focused on getting healthy. He works out almost daily. He eats very healthy, AND It's all my fault. Never have I been so happy to be at the receiving end of that line.
Now we talk about fitness, goals, rest days and both of us are attempting to set a stronger example for my DD, his sister, to get her to want to become healthier as well.
He's 20 mos older than she, so maybe the turn around time will be soon, especially since girls generally pick up on things faster than boys.
