hitting it hard

I made myself a promise on Monday, that I would attend my gym 3 days this week. I DID!!
I attended water aerobics tues and thurs and water zumba on Wed. Yeah I have a few stiff parts this morning, but its all worth it to me
I count the gym as "My time".
My Husband goes to the gym with me, he plays Raquetball, and Wally Ball, but when he dont want to go he tries to talk me out of it, by giving me a million reason on why he dont want to go, I have learned over the past 6 months what to look out for haha! Last night since we had been twice ( our normally) I was driving home from work, he called and it was "oh my feet hurts", I want to eat wings" You know your Granddaughter wants to see you", Just anything he could think of. But! I was a fast thinker and I was like thinking , ok here it comes, GOD HELP ME PLEASE! my response, very nicely was,"And its ok if you dont go to the gym with me, I am 50 and I can drive myself :) You can rest your feet,eat your wings an tell Gracie Grammy will play with her when I get back. :) I went on to explain how this is my time ( My daughter and granddaughter lives with us now) Im taking back my time. I went on the explain to him that His little form of sabatoging isnt going to work this week, :) Long story short I went to the gym and so DID HE!! Not sure I will make it every week 3 days for water fun but Im going to try. Needless to say I FEEL GOOD ABOUT MYSELF THIS MORNING!

    Good job of standing up for yourself. It's so easy to let others keep us from moving forward. Keep it up!
