All of my posts about ‘my’ journey when really, I never could have done it alone. My husband has been my rock – my foundation – through it all. He is my biggest fan and supporter. He entertains our boys during my long runs, or watches the monitor if I have evening workouts when the kids are sleeping. He listens to me vent about bad workouts or hard runs, offered encouragement when I’ve had a rough day and just want to eat a pint of ice cream, and has more than once been my guinea pig as I test out new recipes or even as I practice my certifications. I could never have done it without his support.
On top of all of this, he also has been working on his own health and fitness journey. He has never been a fan of vegetables but he keeps the grumbling to a minimum as I add more and more to our meals. He has also been exercising on his own – doing cycle classes at a nearby studio and joining me on 22 Minute Hard Corps challenges and doing his own 21 Day Fix challenge. Since around this time last year, he has lost over 45lbs! I am so proud of him and so thankful that we have been able to do this all together, and set a good example for our boys by living an active and healthy lifestyle.
Happy Father’s Day, James! I hope you enjoy your day because you really are the best Father to our kids that I could ever have wished for. You are an amazing partner and best friend. Love you!
