The word challenge is in the title of this for a reason.
It’s not easy being a “total mom”.
Fitting everything in.
Taking care of everyone else.
Taking care of yourself.
We had a lot of sickness this week, and normally I wouldn’t feel this guilty for not working out very much. But considering I have to come here and write a post about my experiences the past week with the Total Gym, without much to report I just feel like I didn’t live up to my end of the bargain.
But seriously there was vomit. Lots of it. Some even ON me. There were two days straight where I got absolutely no sleep.
I have excuses.
But here’s the thing. This is life. Real life. Vomit happens. And I’m not supermom. As much I wish I was, I’m not.
Maybe part of the challenge is letting myself off the hook?
One thing that I think is important to note about this whole thing is that getting fit is not simply an 8 week evolution and then you stop. For this blog series, it is 8 weeks, but I fully believe that the Total Gym is a permanent part of my my lifestyle. So missing almost a week in an 8 week challenge may seem like a lot, but missing almost a week in the course of the rest of my life really isn’t something I need to beat myself up about. That might be the very reason people quit.
I intended to write about the benefits of weight training today. I guess I got off-track.
I just found this video of Christie Brinkley doing her 5 favorite Total Gym exercises. I love stuff like this…it inspires me.
You watch, I’m going to workout!
