I have been struggling to get into shape for a few years now. I have dieted. I have lost work out buddies, just due to our different life styles and jobs. It’s hard to find time with two kids, who are very different in age (toddler and pre-teen) along with my pets and my husband… to find time to work out, work, homeschool my child… and run the household.

I have back pains from thing called Tarlov Cysts, so certain workouts are out of the question. But this weekend my husband and I were discussing this.. I WANT to work out… I have a road bike and so does he… so he suggested that we work out indoors with our bikes…

Yes you can do that…

Example:

He already has one of those indoor bike trainers, it holds your bike in place while you ride and work out. So he bought a second one, and we are going to wake up together and work out a few days a week. He knows I need the support and he (being a cyclist) wants to work out indoors this winter. He hasn’t been riding his bike since our daughter was born 2 years ago, so this will be good for him too. He is hardly out of shape though.

I on the other hand, have had two kids and have a desk job. So I NEED this to get healthier and I feel with the support of my husband, we can do this together. I hope to see results.

I don’t know why we didn’t think of this sooner… I mean we are supposed to be best friends right? Yep… I think I just never thought he would want to work out with me. But this might be what I need. He is very supportive of me, he knows I have been trying to get healthier and he says I am beautiful, but I just don’t feel the part. I feel out of shape…I feel unfit…

Now I have tried this in the past but I didn’t have anyone kicking my butt out of bed in the morning, yes … we are going to do morning work outs.

I am going to take those horrible before photos soon… I am waiting for the bike stands to come in the mail this week. Wish me luck…
