#sportsforlife

It has always been a struggle to find time to exercise, for me. As Dan grows older, he demands more of my time and I find myself unable to even spend an uninterrupted 30 minutes to do a workout at home.

I look forward to weekends though since that would mean the husband is around and we could do some forms of exercise together, as a family. I wanted our children to love sports and to achieve that, the adults must model for them.

Last Friday, we visited Decathlon and had a whale of a time. I always go ‘crazy’ over sports products and there are so many items here for various sports. We took the opportunity to show the girl how to throw the frisbee, got her to have a feel of passing the soccer ball, encouraged her to attempt the rock wall climbing and needless to say, she had fun on the trampoline.

And we finally made it to the pool! It’s Dan’s first encounter and as anticipated, he cried when he first touched the water. But after a few minutes, he was fine!

I managed to squeeze in some time to do a short  run yesterday after getting the kids to nap. The hubs took over and off I went. It’s a wonderful feeling, a luxury, being able to be in the outdoors, without whining kids. Hah..

Hopefully, these activities will sustain.

Have a great week, folks.

  1. It can be very challenging to find “me time” especially when we have a family, I’m new to the blogging thing but I just started a blog about how I’m using advocare products to help me reach my fitness goals and get back to working smarter not harder! Go check it out, let me know what you think! #felloffthewagon #gettinfbackon

  2. The hardest part is always getting started and you’ve crossed that hurdle. So find something that works and stick to it 🙂 I love Decathlon too and they have so much sporting wear and equipment.
