Staying Away from Insanity

Working out is not my favorite thing to do. I don't enjoy aerobic activity. Never really have. I like yoga and pilates classes, but that's just not an option right now. So, I decided I was going to train to run a 5k. It's kicking my tail. I'm going to do it, though. It's just going to continue to be a challenge to me.
Finding a time to work out is also a challenge right now. The last thing I want to do when Lee gets home is to leave to go to the gym. It's really different being away from him all day. I was going in to the cafe a lot more before Brennan. It's just easier to stay at home with 2 little ones. The routine is easier to accomplish at home. I really have embraced this whole being a wife and a mommy. I grew up with a home-cooked meal on the table every night. There was no take out or fast food...I mean there were a few restaurants we could order from in Buras, but my mom cooked all of the time. I'm not quite there yet, but I'm getting better. Like I said, I'm really just now starting to embrace this role.
Being a mom has rocked my world. It is a different set of circumstances, emotions, and ideas for each woman. It's easy to look at another mom and say, "I can't believe she's doing that." But you have no idea what is going on inside that woman's mind and inside her house. It's important to remember not to judge. A mom has to do what is best for her and her family. Staying sane is a must, and what that takes is just as unique as the person who is trying to stay sane. I feel like I have a better grip on this sane thing right now...and for me, that means I'm feeling good keeping the insanity away.
