So, I’ll admit it fully- I am the absolute worst about taking care of myself. I’ll take care of everyone else all day long and leave zero time for me to do anything for myself.
I was running a sub 24 min 5k prior to Sierra being born. After she was born and I recovered from surgery, I found myself trying to get everything done every day for everyone and those things that I did for myself went away. I felt guilty for doing something for me when I could spend tome with my kids or do something make the house a little better. I would make lunches, go to work, on my break at work-do more work, pick up kids, make dinner or do laundry or vacuums or any other chore that I knew needed to get done
But it didn’t NEED to.
And that’s where it’s all on me to say “that can wait, go run a mile or take 20 minutes for a short workout, or work on your rounded shoulders or anterior pelvic tilt since it’s bad for your posture”
I never did that. And now, thanks to my amazing husband, I have time to actually do that. A lot of it!
So today I put Sierra in the stroller and we went for a run. My living room is a toy disaster but that’s ok.
And in the basket of the stroller, I saw an old church bulletin from who knows how long ago.... well if that isn’t God’s way of saying “hello! You’re important too!! Take care of yourself so you can be fantastic for your kids!”... the I don’t know what is 🙏❤️#running #runners #motivated #noexcuses #personaltrainer #accountability #noguilt #iloverunning #exercise #babyandmommy #runningbaby#brooks #brooksadrenaline #underarmour
