OK~ Our family does head to the YMCA on a regular basis, partially due to the recommendation of a Mayo Clinic Physician. Last Friday Garrett ( he did not have school), Todd & I went to the YMCA to exercise. We each tend to have a regular routine. The conversation went like this:
The lady that works on the Fitness Floor: "You guys come here regularly, see you all the time!"
The Employee: "You are all fit!"
The Employee: "Would your family like to compete in our family triathlon"
Me: "No, We may look fit, but we are not that fit!"
When I told Todd what she said he says to me, "Did you laugh in her face?"
We do not consider ourselves to be "that" fit! I thought about it- Well, we do go and workout regularly and do the best that we can. My legs just do not move right at times and I would probably collapse in a triathlon! I do all I can to walk on that treadmill for 30 min. on most days! The fact that we are moving on a regular basis is a good thing and maybe we should be thankful that we are able to move like we do.
My fitness goal is to keep my legs/ feet flexible- and the rest of my body does benefit! Somedays are not easy and I only go maybe 15 minutes, but I try! I won't give up....Being Bootstrapped in Iowa is probably a good thing, as this Mom will do all that she can to remain as active as possible~ After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
