I've finally gotten serious about this weight loss/being healthy thing. And I've realized that if I'm gonna do this, I have to make time for it. Truth be told, you make time for what's important to you. Losing weight and my family are important to me. I do my jumping jacks and push ups and other exercise moves in the living room where Royce is happily playing with his toys. He thinks it's hilarious all the moves that mommy does! (sometimes I think he's honestly thinking, "Look how short of breath she is! And that flabby belly bouncing up and down...now THIS is entertainment!") Michael, Royce and I went to a family member's pool on Saturday and I did water aerobics in the pool while playing with Royce! My morning walks, pushing Royce along in the stroller, now entail some jogging as well! By complete chance, someone at church gave me (FREE) their old jogging stroller! (it is super old and very bare minimum. I have my eye one some that I would eventually like to buy. I think I will make that a prize to myself when I reach a certain weight goal....hmmmm, I like that idea!) I had mentioned in a previous post that I would like to incorporate running back into my regimen but didn't know where to fit it in. Well hello?!?!...Get a jogging stroller and turn that morning walk into a run! So, that's what I'm doing! And I haven't "neglected" my son to do any of these workouts!
It's about getting serious and making the time. No more excuses. If you want it bad enough, Make it a priority! Saying, "I want to lose weight" does not shed those pounds. (SHOCKER!!) So you can either put in the work or be jealous of my results. :) The choice is yours!
