My husband and I made not only a promise to each other to work out while our son is becoming a Marine, but we also made a promise to our son to work out hard for him each day.
I sent him a letter explaining that we had a year membership at Planet Fitness which I believe I wrote about earlier. Gary and I struggled at first to figure out our best time to go.
I fought him on trying to be there and ready to work out a little bit before 5 in the a.m. I was a definite grumpy bear at first when he mentioned it. But to be honest, once we started going at that early time, I found I was happiest!
We us the treadmill. We work out in the 12 minute ab area (I LOVE THIS AREA!) Then we ride bikes,then lift arm and leg weights.
To pamper ourselves, we finish with a hydro massage and a tan! We switch off on these last two every other day. I really relax on the hydro massage table and I turn the pressure all the way UP. I could easily fall asleep there and stay for awhile 🙂
Then we finish off with a nice warm shower, wave good-bye to the friendly staff and head our separate ways to work!
Our goal? To push ourselves harder and harder each time. But really we want our son to see an improvement in us and be proud that we worked hard while he was. Becoming a Marine is by far the hardest and we are so proud of his commitment and determination! Go us! Go Alexander!!
