My amazing husband! (pic)
Sunday, June 15, 2014
I could not do this without my husband. I am realizing more and more what a blessing it is to have a husband, life partner, who is willing to make this lifestyle change with me. I hear all to often from friends, acquaintances, co-workers that they "can't" lose weight or change their lifestyle because their spouse is not on board.
He is the one who got me into CrossFit, even though I REALLY did not want to in the beginning. What an amazing thing it has done for both of us! He is 46 yrs old and I think he looks amazing! His body has really changed and I LOVE it! I LOVE that we have this passion in common. It has really brought us closer together. We watch CrossFit videos on YouTube all of the time, LOL! We work with each other on form and technique.
When I decided I wanted to start gravitating towards a Paleo diet, he was totally on board. He doesn't need bread or anything high in carbs. He is not as strict as I am, but he totally respects it when I make dinner and there is no bread, rice, pasta as a side. He is good with the meat and veggies.
As my kids get older (almost 16 and 18 yrs old now) and are out living their own lives and becoming independent... getting girlfriends, getting jobs, etc.... I am so blessed to be married to someone I LIKE being around. In the picture, he and I bought season passes just for us to the local waterpark. We offered it to the kids, but they said they didn't want to come. Fine with us! LOL!
I have still put my scale up and am waiting for July 1st to roll around. My clothes are feeling bigger and my stomach is looking better. And I am feeling pretty awesome. So no matter what the scale says on July 1st, I will still feel pretty victorious.
