Years ago my mother in law said something like this to me in regard to my comment about not begin financially ready to start a family. It resounded with me then, who is every really financially ready to have kids after all? You just figure it out.
Now, I find that it applies to fitness and motherhood in so many situations. The kids grow so fast, if you wait on taking a trip till you have a whole week off or wait till you're done reorganizing the kitchen to stop and play a game...you'll just plain miss it.
Waiting till next year to do that half marathon? Thinking you might be stronger or healthier or lighter? Just do it! Make a plan with what you have in your life now and make it happen. Need to walk the distance instead of run or use a run/walk interval plan? Who are you trying to impress...sign up and get it done!
Enjoy the shorter trip, be ok with a disorganized kitchen, look forward to crossing the finish line.
Combining a love of real food, commitment to exercise, a home based business and a family without going over the edge is the balance I seek daily. There is a confidence that comes from combining these things into life.
