Humility at the YMCA...Further Updates

One of the benefits of Chris being home this week during our "Vacation At Home" is that we've been able to work out together at the YMCA. I've been loving having a partner and not just any partner, my husband! Chris have been focusing on weight training for a long time and I've been walking on the treadmill or the elliptical machine since we joined. I have known for awhile that I needed to start lifting weights very soon and what better time than during Chris' vacation. So, Chris has been showing me around the weight room and giving me a baseline for when I am there again alone. Thanks, Honey! Well, let me say it has been a very humbling experience. Back before Chris and I got married I was pretty proficient myself at lifting weights. I was lifting heavy and my body showed the results. But, then married life set in and I had a baby and my muscles just aren't the same. Today I caught myself thinking "but, I used to lift this weight and I can barely lift that weight now. What happened?" Well, Sarah, life happened and now you are WEAK!! I was greatly humbled. I have two more days of the YMCA with my Hubby. I am greatly encouraged by him and I know that I will be doing far more in the future. I just have to take it one rep at a time. Stay tuned for more Updates From The YMCA. This should be interesting.
