I used to think it was all about fitness. But I've realized that it's really about WELLNESS.
Fitness = No pain. No gain.
Wellness = If there's pain, find another way to accomplish the same goal in the same amount of time.
Fitness = Workout before anything.
Wellness = Sometimes the doing the puzzle or the book to your child comes before the workout.
Fitness = Going faster, going further, lifting more.
Wellness = Squeezing in 24 minutes of cardio before the family wakes up. Finding satisfaction in a quick but intense session of body squats, pull-ups and push-ups.
Fitness = Measuring every ounce of chicken and cooking a week's worth of meals on Sunday.
Wellness = Stashing bags of nuts, turkey jerkey and bottled water in the most amazing places so my family always has healthy snacks on hand.
It took a lot of time and experience to learn that Mommy doesn't mean fitness.
Mommy Means Well.
