Finally, we traveled through Ohio to visit my beloved grandmother on Friday. After way too many hours in the car (PA and OH are freakin’ huge states to drive across…I might as well have driven through Montana!) we arrived at my aunt and uncle’s home. My aunt has limited mobility due to some hip issues and I didn’t realize how much that would limit my own physical activity. Between hanging out with her and with my 85 year old grandmother, we didn’t move around too much. I realized on Saturday night that I was in a completely foul mood and it hit me. Exercise makes me happy. Exercise helps me deal with the stress of parenting. Exercise makes me a better person. It has only been a few days, but OH MY GOD, I miss it!!
I’m home now and excited to hit the gym tonight. I’m putting together my meal plan for the week and penciling in a couple of new workout moves. For starters, I’m going to join the #PlankADay Revolution. I’m trying to find an evening this week when my husband can pick up our child so that I can catch a hot yoga class. I’m about to finish week 1 of the 100 Push Up Challenge that I’m doing with a few other Twitter mamas. This is going to be a good week. Just writing this post has improved my mood and my outlook. I will no longer be a slug! J
Have a great week, folks!
