Saturday Celebrations

Today  I celebrate my growth, determination, and the challenges I’ve overcome. BBG is healthy to my mind. Back in December I saw myself growing frustrated and sometimes taking my frustration out on others (mainly the hubs). I knew and he knew. I knew I needed to be working out. Giving myself some me time as creating a more positive state of mind.

These past 9 weeks have felt great. At times, work can be so stressful. I like having something else to look forward to, and a way to relieve the stress I carried throughout the day. And goodness, these winter months! I feel like I literally live in a hunched up ball, wrapped up in a blanket. When I exercise, my entire body feels more awake, more alive. I know I stand taller and I just feel BETTER. I know this to be true, and yet still sometimes I fall out of a workout routine. I want to remind myself of this the next time I go a week without phyiscal activity….

 So, today I celerbate myself and my happiness. The beginning of BBG was rough. I pushed off my workouts every night. I wouldn’t even begin the workout until some time after 9:30pm. Through my struggles and lack of motivation the hubs was there to support me, sometimes watching me during my workout to be the coach I needed to press on. And other times he supported be by doing a little extra around the house as I made more time for physical fitness in my day. Nine weeks in, I truly feel like I have made it a habit.

Cheers to being happy.

Oh- and one other real fancy Saturday celebration… someone I love dearly will be getting engaged this evening. Tears roll down my face because I am overcome with joy.

 Life is good!

  1. Thank you for the reminder about how powerful it is to make working out a habit! With two kids and an overloaded schedule, it’s the first thing I put off–but I definitely need to make more time for it! Congratulations on how far you’ve come! Enjoy your fun evening!

  2. Wonderful celebration of making time for yourself, so hard to do as a teacher. I love the description of yourself in winter living in ” a hunched up ball, wrapped up in a blanket.” And then the positive results of exercising: “… my entire body feels more awake, more alive.” Congrats for making this a habit!

  3. So glad you have found an exercise routine. I am trying to do the same. Right now, walking 3-4 miles, 3x/week. But it is a start. Soon, I will be able to be in the garden. You can hear the joy of your celebration in your post. Congratulations.
