L.E.N.S. photo challenge: PE edition

What does PE look like at our house? 
Well, on a nice day, it's riding bikes, playing basketball or football and doing other "boy things" outside. 
On rainy days, depending on the season, it's either puddle jumping in the rivers running through our backyard or playing Wii.  We went swimming at the Y ealier this week, too, since it was cold and rainy out. 
Our latest PE activity, though, is our new backyard zipline...I love Alex's expression as he started out on his turn down the line.
 Daddy and Grandpa built their zipline and it couldn't be better...except for it to be rated for Mama, too. :)  Maybe an upgrade can be in our future. :) 

   Join in on the PE fun at the L.E.N.S. photo challenge @ Home Is Where You Start From.

it's not about me

I reminded myself of this recently.
It's not about me at all, this wellness journey I am on to a healhier version of myself.
Not at all.
Never has been, really.

It is about the people who invest in me.
My husband. My boys. My family. My friends.
They all share themselves with me.
When I am not at my best, I'm not giving them a good return for their investment.
They get the tired looks, the lack of energy excuses, and the wimpy "maybe next time" cop outs.
I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
