Our bodies are a gift

Our bodies are a gift that we too often take for granted. This picture was taken about a week into my bed rest with the twins last year. I’m smiling on the outside, but on the inside I was feeling something different. After we snapped this pic Cole ran outside to the backyard to enjoy the beautiful day while I reclined deeper into the couch.

Why am I sharing this? Because I don’t want you to take for granted your body’s amazing abilities like I did. Stretch your arms and legs, run or walk, increase your push-ups count or add more weight to your dumbbells. Even if you’ve never worked out in your life, just ask yourself one question. How would you feel if you didn’t have a choice? If you didn’t have the choice whether you could go for a walk or train for a 5K or push play and do a 30 minute workout at home?

Even if you don’t want to or you come up with a million reasons for not working out. Just remember you CAN. You have that freedom of choice, every day. So isn’t it worth it to just do it?
