Life as a mom is not all that I thought it would be- it’s more. It’s probably the most unselfish thing I’ve ever done. It’s hard. And it means I don’t always get to do things on my time.
This morning I planned on getting up early and getting my workout in before the kids woke up. But Zane had a sad dream and woke up in tears. So we cuddled and danced it out to Queen. Then I got halfway through my workout and Zoey woke up. She’s teething and extra clingy. We’re talking never leave my side, crying if I’m not holding her type clingy. I ended up putting things on pause. I took care of HER needs, then got back to MY needs.
See, here’s the thing about at home fitness. It’s done on my schedule, NOT my trainers. I don’t have to work in a class time into my schedule, and I’m not upset if things get moved around because it doesn’t mean I’m missing out. It takes a lot of discipline, yes, but it’s worth it.
Because if I was at the gym I would’ve missed out on a great moment with Zane this morning. I would’ve missed out on a time when I was needed. I’m not the perfect mother. Not by a long shot. But I’m here for the moments that matter. And that’s what’s most important to me.
