You Know You're Starting a New Habit When...

You know you are starting something new when....after you return from an hour of "working out", your 8 year-old tells you that you don't look like a "workout person". Just you wait, buddy. I will look like one yet! =o)

Too cute!

I never know what will pop out of my 6 year-old's mouth - yikes!

Keep up the good work. It feels good to work out, doesn't it? I'm always energized, a little sore afterwards, but energized just the same :)

LOL!! That is too funny! I am proud of you! :-) Great job! Keep it up!

Tracy said...

Ahhhh, yes. The honesty of children. My daughter once told me that she liked sitting next to me better than Dad. She explained, "Dad is hard like steel, and you're squishy like a teddy bear!"

Karen said...

Hmmm, out of the mouths of babes. How's school going?

Ruth said...

Thanks for the encouragement everybody! Tracy, that comment is hysterical!! Well, women are SUPPOSED to be soft!!

Jennifer said...

You GO GIRL!

Keep it up, they will soon put your picture in the dictionary for the definition of "workout" :o)

I'm trying to prove some nay-sayers around me wrong as well. I've actually intentionally not seen my parents in 2 weeks in order to hopefully prove my point.

You can do it!

Ruth,

I am not a mother but I bet if I were my child would say the same thing about me. (lol) Keep up the good work.

Hugs, Lyndy

Susie said...

Are you sure we don't share the same child? Sounds exactly like what my 7 yr.old might say. I need to be working out too!

Lori said...

HA! You don't look like a workout person. I agree with the others. Kids say the darndest things.

Jennifer said...

You inspired me... I'm looking into Shag Lessons. I might do them by myself, but I'm eager to try something new to reward myself for my mere 10 lbs loss :o)

Hope all is going great for you!

Just Mom said...

Keep it up! :-D

Lori said...

Hi Ruth,
Good to hear from you.
We are all doing good, other than Megan's slight cold.
We are just very busy with daycare kids, our own kids' activities, housework, a couple bible studies, exercising, AND a career change starting in a few weeks. I've been busy lining things up for that.
Love and Hugs,
Lori
