Life has been busy. Hectic, even.
It was already getting there, what with full-time employment, the kid, the book, and all the usual elements of life.
Throw in a trip to the ER with the little one*, follow-up with a specialist, and all that comes with that, and the stress level certainly increased here.
Everything combined means I haven’t been very good about #aheartfitfriday. Which I feel badly about.
The idea of CharityMiles? You walk, run, or bike, your phone records your miles, and each mile earns money for a charity of your choosing (they have a really nice selection).
People who know me well know that I am MUCH better about caring for someone else than I am for myself. My pregnancy is a prime example. I don’t think I’ve ever been as healthy as I was then – because every choice I made affected someone else.
So, CharityMiles is an ideal way for me to get my exercising back on track – I’m exercising for a greater cause than squeezing into cute jeans. [I'll be choosing my cause this weekend.]
But then I got to thinking: shouldn’t I want to do this for ME, too?
And that’s when I discovered that maybe part of being “heart fit” is giving myself a bit of an attitude adjustment, too.
How is everyone else doing with their #aheartfitfriday (or general fitness) goals? What does it take to inspire you to take care of yourself properly?
*I haven’t discussed the details of the ER visit here on the blog because the interwebs are forever and I don’t want the little man to hate me when he gets old enough to care what I’ve shared publicly. He is okay.
