What is Your Biggest Struggle When It Comes to Family Health and Fitness?
Are you struggling with your own fitness goals because you and your family are not on the same page?
As a mom on the run raising three children (ages 15, 11 and 6), every day bring its challenges. Each day, I attempt to find a way to fit it all in from workouts to my WAHM life. Like my blog tag line states, I’m just “trying to maintain an easy pace through it all between races and raising a family.”
For the past nine years since I began this blog, I have shared my real life fitness journey and heart-felt stories about the challenges with finding balance between training for marathons and a harmonious family life. By spreading myself too thin and taking on unrealistic goals, overachieving slowly chipped away at my health and it took an injury to help me really understand my ultimate goal – living a healthy, happy life. Like the expression says, “If momma ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy.”
By starting over as a runner, I set reasonable goals for myself. In turn, setting small reasonable fitness goals didn’t put a huge burden on my family. Since I wasn’t racing every weekend or trying to squeeze in a four hour long 20-miler like the old Run DMT, I could focus my attention back on my family and my marriage.
During my time off from running related to my injury two years ago, my husband found his own fitness journey – mountain biking. Now, as a couple, we struggle with taking turns with our workouts on the weekends (his longer rides and my longer runs) or the solution becomes Allan riding on the trail while I run or we ride together. Finding a way to make fitness work for my whole family and a reasonable path to fitness helped heal my body and my spirit as well as my marriage.
Next month, I have the pleasure of sharing my story and tips in an exciting interview series brought to you by Dr. Paul and his lovely wife, Bethany, where I will share my fitness journey – the struggles and the hurdles.
