It was good for me because it really made me think about the girls in my class. As I'm getting all these instructions, arms in, lean back, weight on front foot, push with my legs, head up, etc.... I would just focus on one thing at a time and not get up or would get dragged. Eventually, it all came together and I was up. If you are just getting into making lifestyle changes to take care of yourself, hang in there! It may time concentration and more effort at first, but keep a good attitude and keep getting back up, eventually you will be doing it naturally without even thinking about it. Just don't stay down when you fall. It is about putting a smile on, don't beat yourself up, you are not perfect, and keep trying cause it is worth the effort :)
If you are trying to make lifestyle changes to care for yourself, get around others who are doing it. Surround yourself with people who are positive, that also exercise self control, and are not lazy.Learn from them and watch them it can be motivating. Be around people in your life that encourage you and support you. Dan is awesome cause even though I could not get up and the boat had to keep coming back to get me. I could see him smiling at me in the boat and he would say just the right things to encourage me to keep on trying and not feel like a complete loser that I can't get up. Since, mostly women read my blog, try to do the same for your husband. Be his biggest fan, supporter, cheerleader, and companion. Let them know how you admire them and appreciate all they do for your family and you can probably watch your husband literally change before your eyes. It is awesome! Remember you are on the same team, so build each other up so you have a stronger team to have victory.
1. Get to know your neighbors, it can make life way more fun.
2. Take time this summer to for quality family time to just enjoy being together and have fun together. One thing that really makes our marriage off the charts is that we laugh together and have fun together. We still feel like we are dating.
