|See how hard it is to resist this face?|
However, I'm starting to realize that even though there may be changes in my life, it's really important that my priorities stay constant. Being active is important to me, and especially given the fact that I work in a job where I sit all day, when I'm not working out, I just don't feel as healthy or have as much energy. Granted, now that we have Lola, I may have to readjust my expectations, meaning maybe workout 3 times a week instead of 5 or 6 times. But that's ok, it's better than nothing. It's just important that I commit to doing something, and get back on track. Because honestly if I can't get to the gym when I have a puppy, how much harder is it going to be to stay in shape when I have kids one day? That thought is what made me get my butt in the car and go to spin class tonight! Because as I get older and my time gets more scarce, I know that I have to make taking care of myself a priority and stay active, even when other things like work or a cute puppy monopolize my time.
One thing I am looking forward to as Lola gets bigger is getting to go one walks, hikes, and runs with her. Cam and I actually took Lola on her first hike yesterday in the Pisgah National Forest in North Carolina, and she did great! It was a 6.5 mile hike, and she got a little bit tired at the end, but she made it the whole way. (I've included some pics from our hike!) I'm looking forward to spending more time outdoors with her as the weather warms up, so that way I can stay fit and spend time with my pup all at once! :)
