Now and Then

I’m currently sitting on the couch with a sleeping baby next to me. I find that I have a lot of time to reflect on things these days. As I think about my week and what I accomplished I’m happy. I went to crossfit 2 times and I am happy about it! Things have certainly changed for us in the last 8 weeks.

Then, there was a time in my life that I would have gotten down on myself for only working out a couple times in one week. Now, I’m grateful that I had two whole hours to go and workout.  (Thanks Mike!)

Then, I literally had nothing to worry about when I was at home. I’d come home from work and take care of my dogs. I could workout whenever I wanted and with a minutes notice. Now, I have to plan around feedings and when Mike will be home from work and the weather.

Then, I could bundle myself up and go for a run no matter what the temperature. Yes, I’d run on these blistery days. Now, There’s not a chance I’m taking the nugget out on a very cold day just so I can run.

Then, I wasn’t concerned about over doing it. Everything I did was for me. Now, if I get injured I’d have a whole new mess to take care of. If I thought 2 am feedings were hard while healthy I can’t imagine them with an injury!

Then, I was worried about what others thought about my body. Now, I just had a baby and I don’t care what others think. I am working out purely for me.

Then, I’d hang around after class chatting with friends. Now, I’m trying to get home quickly to see my boys.


Yes… things have changed around there. For the better. I am loving this time in Hudson’s life because I know he isn’t always going to need me like he does now. I will have more “me” time as he gets older. For right now,  I am perfectly content being at his beck and call.

I hope you all have a great weekend! I’m hoping that tomorrow I’ll be able to get myself to the community class and get another workout in. If I don’t- the world will go on.

    I love this one! Just think in a few years you won’t even really remember having that freedom. I don’t even know what to do with myself when I have it now. I plan and plan and plan about what I would do with a few days of freedom and when I get a bit I don’t do any of it!
