I switched my workout time today from late evening to morning. This gave me the opportunity to talk to Doodlebug about why mommy makes time to exercise.
As a toddler she may not always understand why this special time is important. So, I break it down and tell her mommy exercises so I feel better. And I exercise so I’m able to spend much more time with her, sister & Dada in the future.
She still tells me “no” sometimes. But I workout anyway.
And, 9 times out of ten, she joins in at some point.
You know, I originally started my fitness journey for me. But by focusing on me, I am actually becoming the wife, mother, and woman I want my daughters to be.
So sometimes changing up my routine is a good thing! When I workout at night, they are always in the bed. But when I switch to a daytime workout, they always see me.
By doing this I am showing my girls growth, imperfection, and self-worth. All which are EXTREMELY important.
And if I don’t show my daughters the way, who will?
There’s a saying,
“Be The Good You Want To See In The World”
This could not be more true when it comes to raising our children.
I want to challenge you to be that example for your family, friend….or stranger!
How will you will you lead?
Are you doing this already?
Let me know in the comments.
