Friday night on our smokin' hot dinner date-
(which only took us 2 hours to get to because of traffic)
We had the best waiter- someone who reminded us of Elvis.
Brian was waiting at any minute for our friendly
waiter to break out in song, which unfortunately he didn't. :(
However he was very "cool" and entertaining.
Anyway, as I watched him and thought about it this weekend,
I thought about how sometimes it's so hard to balance.
Our waiter had a plate or a pitcher in each hand at
all times. He went from table to table serving people,
yet still didn't quite make it on time to fill up the thristy
camel Brian always takes on his dates- aka Me.
Still, he did his best & made it fun for all of us
in the process.
I feel like my life is like this. I try to carry
different plates & pitcher (my kids
& husband) around at all times, &
for the most part I do pretty well about balancing
& being there when they need me.
And then, there are the times when I feel
like I am trying to find balance with all the
additional bowls & pans & cookie sheets that
need to be taken care of as well.
How do we do it?
I asked one of my brother-in-laws the other day
how he finds balance in his life and he said,
"I make sure I exercise before I do anything else."
Blah! Exercise! Uh-huh yeah, that's not something
I really want to balance in my life right now, yet
I know I need to because I know how good I feel
when I do exercise & it gives me energy for the
rest of my day & I feel better about myself.
My two friends Marnie & Jillian wait for me
EVERY day, and EVERY day I ignore them.
(both from google images)
Why do I ignore them-
because they make me work... hard!
Today we became friends again &
guess what- I am sore, but I feel great!
So, as I begin to find more balance in my life,
I hope Marnie & Jillian will help me have energy,
shed some pounds, & feel better about myself.
These are my two favorite
20 minute workout videos.
and doesn't this look good!
I think if I knew I had one of these
babies waiting for me everyday after
my 20 minute work out I would have
no problem. :)
