I had no idea our garage gym would be part of our emergency preparedness, but it is! (Now if only I had a pool?) And I say that in all seriousness. It’s a place that not only keeps me physically healthy but also mentally healthy. It’s my quiet space, my “me time”, and I love it. #There’s a lot of stress in all of our lives right now. A lot of worry and a ton of fear of the unknown. It’s vital that we take care of ourselves so that we can take care of our loved ones. #Along with everything else that has been cancelled, my 70.3 Ironman was postponed, which would have been in 2 1/2 weeks from today #oceanside703 . And even though it’s silly, I will admit that I was super disappointed. I’ve been working my butt off for 6 months, putting a lot of hours into training, and waking up very early each morning to get in my workouts. And for a moment (ok more like a day) I felt like all that hard work was for nothing. What a waste of time. But a friend gently reminded me that it wasn’t for nothing. It helped keep me healthy, both physically and mentally, through the long and dark winter months. It wasn’t for nothing. And she is right! #But we also need to allow ourselves grace. And it’s ok to be disappointed that events in our life, that we’ve been looking forward to, are being cancelled. It’s ok to be angry, and sad, and worried. We are human. Be kind to yourself. Take care of yourself. And if you need to lift some weights, come on over!! I promise I disinfect my gym daily. #garagegym ##wattieink #rockthew #wattieinkhitsquad #fastfiercefamily #wattieinkracing #ad #sponsored #wattieinkwednesday #teamwattieink #hitsquad @wattieinkracing #wattieinkhitsquad2020 #trimom #trilife #homegym #sweatshop #703training
