Last night I looked at my possibilities for exercise classes for today. I decided I was going to kickboxing at 8:45 am and then maybe get to 6pm sunset yoga. Part of the day would include all 4 of us going to the beach after the baby napped. My day was full of choices. I woke up and made a choice to go to kickboxing, leaving my husband with the cranky toddler to contend with and get down for a nap. I made a choice to eat a healthy breakfast and take my medicine prior to class in order to fuel my body properly. I choose to work hard in class to make it worth my effort. It was my choice to eat light and healthy all day. Tonight I choose not to go to a 6pm sunset yoga class in order to have a family dinner. This is where I started thinking about choices.
Choice - noun 1. an act or instance of choosing; selection: 2. the right, power, or opportunity to choose; option: 3. the person or thing chosen or eligible to be chosen: 4. an alternative: 5. an abundance or variety from which to choose:We can make active and passive choices. This weight loss / fit thing is about active choices. I debated back and forth about yoga, while cleaning the bathroom and bathing the kids.
I want to go to Yoga
It's 5:15 pm, we can eat I can still make it
I want to go to yoga but I did exercise today
Should I ask Hubby how he feels about me going
It's been over a week since my last class
I am thinking he won't like the idea - Family dinner and I went out all wed night
It's 5:40 pm and Hubby still doesn't have dinner ready
Sunset yoga sounds so cool
Not sure I can do both the family dinner and yoga
Ok, I choose family dinner over yoga and I am good with that choice
I made an ACTIVE choice not to go to yoga. I did what I need to do for my health already and my family is equally important.
