Highlight of my day: Sophia and I went to a yoga class together this morning. On the way home she said, "Why were you able to do more of the moves than me? A few months ago you couldn't even sit on the floor?" It is true. My workouts (cardio, weights, yoga) have continued almost as if I haven't taken almost two years off. Granted, I worked out whenever my body allowed, but for the most part, actual workouts just didn't happen. Yet, my strength and flexibility have returned strong.
I felt proud today that Sophia noticed my strength and flexibility. I knew she was proud of me too. The last several years I have felt weak physically. That isn't how I want my almost teenage daughter to see me. Today she saw me as I want her to see me; as a strong woman who is always challenging herself to improve!
