So...I haven't done anything since race day, which was July 4th! That's right..no physical activity in over 1 week..and I'm starting to feel guilty about it.
There is that word again..guilt!
Why oh why am I obessessing over this and making my self feel bad about not making time for me?
With the race, I had a goal. Now that it's over, I'm back to working out just to work out and well, that doesn't always motivate me!
Of course it makes me feel good, but always working out with your kids in your legs (literally) isn't always super inspiring..
This morning, I decided to start something new, my morning routine! The idea was to set a timer for 30 minutes and tell the kids to play with their handheld devices while I do my thing (yoga, meditation and journaling were on my mind!) What a funny idea I had..as soon as I told her to leave me alone, Adèle followed me to the basement...lol!!
I kept on going and instead of meditating, I took 3 deep breaths and instead of journaling, I went straight to working on my computer. Then I realized, today was the first day! I need to give her and myself the time to get used to the idea of morning ritual!
And THAT got me thinking even more..about physical exercise! I don't always have 20-30 minutes ahead of me...but why wait?!? I could do 3x10 minutes or even squat while pouring water, lunging while picking up toys..and planking while checking facebook, instagram, etc on my phone!
The moral of the story is this: Why wait?! JUST DO IT!!!!
