That being said, I've gone to the gym once since we've been here. It's not for lack of trying, It's just that when we only have the one vehicle and my husband doesn't get back home until 6:30 and the gym daycare closes at 7:30...I tend to not make the effort.
Another downside of not being home.
It's a bummer too because I have terrible body image issues. I'm not a big girl, just built a little sturdier than some and I'm really self conscious about it. Especially when my husband insists on walking around like a Greek Adonis and has no outward effects of having a 7 lb baby.
Ahhhhh to be 16 again. Anyways, I woke up this morning in a miserable, bloaty, fat girl mood. I hate not being active. It makes me not only feel chubby but out of shape and unhealthy too. So then it hit me, I may not can go to the gym everyday like I like to do at home, but that doesn't mean I can't get in a little exercise right here in my living room in NM.
Yes, working out at home can be pretty fruitless. But it's definitely better than doing nothing, right? Plus, Campbell gets excited and starts jumping around when I do stupid looking stuff like jumping jacks.
Alllllright, I say all this to say that you're not always given the tools you want...like I really wish I had a treadmill in this house...but God built most of our tools into this thang we like to call a body. Brains, brawn, and all.
Point is, it sometimes seems like we don't have everything we need to accomplish something we want to do. I probably would do better on a treadmill than I will bouncing around like a bumbling fool in the house...but don't you think that trying is better than waiting?
I do. So instead of wishing that I was at the gym so I could rid myself of some excess flubber, I'm going to try and at least make some headway here at home.
Next time you think something is out of your reach, try it anyways. You might be surprised:)
Happy Hump Day!
