Sometimes between work, marriage, parenting, life, and all the other details that make up each day, it’s not always easy to get a workout in the mix. For quite some time, we let too many days go by with nothing on the fitness front even crossing our mind.
For our family, our success has come when we shifted the way we thought about working out. Rather than a traditional hour class at the gym or a five mile run, we have started making family evenings at the park our workout. We can mix and match activities to make it fit our time frame and needs for the day.
Sometimes I push the stroller when Mr. Gray runs.
Other times he pushes while I do yoga in the park.
Sometimes we push Baby Gray on his bike. We play baseball, soccer, and anything in between.
For us, it’s as important for Baby Gray to see us making healthy choices as it is for us to make them. We want him to choose to be fit and work hard as well. He loves to come to my races; he tells everyone that as soon as he’s five he can play baseball. We want to foster those choices for him while keeping ourselves in shape, too.
