In August, we were ready to do it.
We were dedicated.
We bought the shoes.
We had the heart rate monitors
We bought the machine (which happened to come with it’s own lube?).
We were ready.
Elliptical and fitness here we come.
And, you all are laughing now, right?
What was I thinking? I was 7 months pregnant with a one and a half year old and a full time job! HAHA! That so didn’t happen.
I think I have been on the elliptical about 3 times since we bought it.
Mr. Serious did a little better. And then #2 got here.
And 6 months later…we’ve got to get in shape. And, it isn’t just about the fitness, either. We are both tired and cranky. We need the escape. We need to sweat and get out our day’s frustrations.
Yesterday, I told Mr. Serious when he got home that we were exercising. I told him I would start at 8 and he gets 8:30. Once I said it out loud, I had to do it. He was my accountability partner. And it worked. We both did it.
Now I’ve just got to keep at it. The first time is the hardest and then it gets easier. I should know this. I’m a certified aerobics instructor.
So, I’m going to stick with it. I have to. So I can be a better wife and a better mother! Here’s to fitness!
(And, now I have to get over the fact that I’m going to have to wash my hair more!)
