How pre-workouts go when you have a family. 💪🏼 _____________________________ It’s really tough to set apart time, but sometimes the best time is when their little eyes are watching you. Littles have the amazing ability to soak in things they see without officially being taught it. Today, they saw that Mommy had to stop a workout halfway for safety because of elbow pain. But instead of quitting, we are switching the workout with outside activity. Kids are always watching. What am I teaching my kids?

With warmer weather finally here after an endless winter, here's a little throwback to spending TIME with the family, being active, creating memories and being a great role-model for the whole family👨👩👦👦 - If you live in a colder climate❄️, then you're probably used to dressing up your kids with layers, gloves, hats, etc...Not to mention, the challenge of fitting them in their car seats with all that extra fluff😤! This all takes up a lot of TIME! - Time being the #1 excuse for not exercising or making better lifestyle choices, I always wonder what happens to that "TIME" when the warm weather's back. Does it disappear? Does it also get lost in Sock Land? Where does it go? - I find this a perfect example to highlight that it all comes down to priorities! We find other things to "OCCUPY" ourselves and once again we're stuck again with no time. Maybe we justify this by saying that all of our time goes to the KIDS! - Have you ever asked yourself what really goes to the kids? What your supposed self-sacrifice for their benefit really teaches them? Do you actually think that your kids are saying to themselves: "Well, daddy is abandoning is health....but, I'll definitely be the one to BREAK this PATTERN🔨 somewhere down the line!" What are you teaching them really and what will they remember?🤔 - By the way, these are all questions I frequently ask myself....yes MYSELF because it is all about ME in reality. At end of the day, I don't remember all the times my parents let me play video games or watch TV. I grew up with divorced parents and although my dad went through some tough times living in a one room apartment with an empty fridge in a poor neighbourhood, some of my fondest memories are of him and me smacking a tennis ball on a wall with some beat up rackets🤗🎾 - Comment below on what you think really matters at the end of the day and what creates the best impact for the family!
I was so sore and tired when I got back from workin some cattle I didn't think I could stand anymore let alone roll down the hill with my son..but I remember when I was told I wouldn't be able to do this ever again. So I do. I still think It's amazing this is the same world I've experienced such alternative realities in. A land of hidden death in every shadow, brutal things done to people you bare witness to while you walk past to close with and destroy the men responsible. Sitting in a pool of my own blood with my bones sticking out in the middle of a street off base in Columbus Georgia....using a walker at 21 ,crawling to bathrooms, sickness for years...but here...this little moment and others like it are why we can live in a world or life that can at times be so painful, scary...chaotic. It can be so hard and brutal and you'd think god shoulda sunk Noah's ark. But remarkably life has enough little moments like this that will get you thru the other 90 percent that isn't so magical. I try and put myself in as many of these moments as I can because I know life will always throw you curveballs no matter how well you train or safe you try and be. So..take every moment you can to hold onto life's magic. That magical feeling is peace and happiness . It's elusive and fleeting but it's there for the taking right in front of us sometimes. Those are the moments that get you thru. #moments#life#fatherhood#warriors#lifeafterwar#peace#happy#mentalhealth
