Fitness and Fatherhood
Jules said something this morning … I’ve been thinking about it all day.
We were talking about how important it is for us to be healthy. For the first time, I am seeing that health and fitness is more than working on myself and striving to be a better version of me.
No .. it’s much more powerful than that.
Being healthy is the best thing I can do for my son.
Fitness is critical in parenthood.
I didn’t appreciate how physical it is to raise a kid. This little dude is running around all the time. We are constantly bending over to pick him up, moving him around to different places of the house, and carrying him around.
This morning at Muay Thai class, there was a moment when I thought about taking a break. For some reason, the thought of being healthy for my family came into my head, and I kept working.
It’s a totally different concept, and something I am grateful to be aware of.
