Here’s mine! Leg Day!!
Me no like.
I looked forward to Pilates day.
It will be a nice gentle workout, I thought.
Pfffth!! Gentle? HA!
How dare I think any part of getting fit is easy and gentle?
Nothing about my fitness journey will be easy.
I will continue to push myself and keep my eye on the prize!!
It’s really that simple.
We recently spent some time on the beach.
Sidebar: We live a “stone’s throw” from some of the most beautiful beaches in the US – in my opinion – and we just don’t get out there very much, I’m sad to say.
Anyways, we went took the boat and some of the kids to the beach recently just for the afternoon. It was a gorgeous day! We really had a great time. I noticed my 14 yr old had been sitting in the softer sand for a while. Letting him do his thing, I just keep an eye on him. Eventually he got up and moved on to chasing a bird or something like that… boys will be boys.
I walked over to see what had held his concentration for such a long time and found this.
What I found absolutely melted me.
My 14 yr old, sometimes self absorbed, typical teenage son had been methodically carving a perfect heart in the sand.
What did this say to me? His heart is full of love.
Our hearts should be filled with love. We should give love without reservation. In return we will receive love.
See? It’s as simple as that.
Ok y’all. This ain’t pretty. I never could pull off the messy bun look, haha. 💁
What’s beautiful about this is that I am dedicated to a healthy life. For me, this means setting my alarm for 4AM.
This gives me one interrupted hour to focus on myself. 💪🏻
Do I WANT to get up? Heck no!! But I know the reward I feel when I check off my to do list before the sun comes up. ☀️
Set your goal and stick with it!
Try this: Set your alarm for just 30 min early and get a head start on your day!
