Today’s workout blessing was our lovely new venue. We are vacationing with 4 other families in a huge cabin with a game room. My workout was completed in a very large space with my closest neighbor a pool table. The 42inch flat screen TV energized my husband and I and as a result we both pushed hard.
I suppose another factor was our late start time. We had already woken up, fed the kids and I honestly thought my chances for a workout were over, but another sympathetic mommy watched the kiddos for us, while we went upstairs. My gratefulness to her was in abundance and I’m sure the emotion carried over into our workout.
As I mentioned, the room we worked out in was upstairs. Apparently we made quite a ruckus downstairs. Thunder was the word used to describe the overhead noise. There is a certain amount of motivation in my mind for tomorrow knowing we sound like thunder when we work out! J
I already know it’s going to be a late night. There is a peaceful quiet this house when the 13 children are in bed. Even when fatigue sets in the knowledge the genuine fellowship happens so infrequently will keep me up way past my desired bedtime.
Hopefully, knowing I only have one more chance to work out in the fun game room will give me the little push I need in the morning to get up and out of my room before my 20 month old Eve sees me. Her Pack n Play is in our room and last night any time she saw us she started screaming for us to pick her up. :/ With all the other people trying to sleep in this house there is a strong desire to keep her asslep and/or appeased as far into the morning as possible.
All I can ask for in this stage of life is a completely work out…maybe some days even that is too much ask.
