Fit Friday

My daughter wanted to quit gymnastics. After lots and lots of questions of why I finally got an answer…well a couple answers. 1. It was hard and 2. she didn’t want me to stay and watch. WHAT?! I know. I was a little heartbroken that she didn’t want my support there but she’s easily embarrassed, something I’m really working on with her, and I figure one day she’ll want me there to watch her again. But the fact that gymnastics was hard…it was something we talked about for a long, long. LONG time. Because of course it’s hard and of course she’s not going to see the results she wants right away but that first time she gets a handstand by herself or the first time she can do a full split…worth it.

The same goes for working out. It’s hard. It hurts and most days, it just plain sucks. But after the first couple weeks, you’ll start seeing those results and you’ll tell yourself that every minute of pain was worth it.
