More Thoughts on Change

A few days ago, I wrote about some of the exercise and eating changes that I have made over the years. I wrote about the fact that changes are best made slowly so that you can adjust to them.

Well, guess what, life is full of surprises, and you can’t always plan for change. I have been a mother for 18 years, and I know that with children comes continuous change: change in their sleeping schedule, new activities, school, classes, friends… So many times over the years I have thought that just when we are comfortable with a schedule, it changes…

And that’s exactly what’s happening right now with the toddler. We are making some changes to his schedule and his activities (and therefore our schedules), and I don’t like them. In fact, I was quite upset over the weekend until I calmed down a bit and realized that it’s all going to work out. And if it doesn’t work out on the first try, we'll work on it until we find a solution that will work for all of us.

One of the changes in the toddler’s schedule makes it more difficult for me to work out at the gym. After complaining and whining talking about it with hubby, I actually did something about it and got my DVDs and weights out. Plus, I signed up for Cindy’s 30 Day Core Challenge. It’s based on Pilates, and I’m very excited as I haven’t done Pilates in quite some time. The challenge starts today, so if you are looking to work on your core a bit, why don’t you join?

Questions: Are there/have there been any changes in your life that you are not too happy about? If so, how do/did you handle them?
Be well,
