My New Gym Buddy
After turning double digits last month, Little Diva is now old enough to join me in the fitness center at the gym. We met with a trainer earlier this month and she can join me on the treadmill, elliptical and stationary bike. It is so much fun running along side her! She really enjoys the elliptical, which has made me step outside of MY comfort zone. I have always felt awkward on that piece of equipment and her enthusiasm made me stick-it-out a bit longer and now I actually enjoyed it.
There is something that makes me smile each time I glance over at her and she is pushing the speed buttons up, up and up. Seeing her "in the zone" as she watches kid's programming on cable TV and listens to her earbuds. She doesn't even realize that she is exercising. And then we she run/walks a 14 minute mile, then a 13 minute mile - and yesterday, a 12 minute mile and brags about her accomplishments while she towels off. It makes me giggle inside (and out) each and every time.
