How often do you and your family eat meals together and get active together?
B, my mom, my four sisters and I attended a wedding last night. The reception was a family style dinner and it was awesome! We got to pick from several different things and had great food and conversation. I kind of felt bad for the two random people who got stuck with us.
Growing up, we ate dinner together every night. Without fail. All six of us.
I didn’t appreciate it then, but I do now.
Now B and I eat whatever is easy to make in front of the tv. We have a beautiful dining room table and I can count on one hand the number of times we’ve eaten there.
I was active in high school. I played indoor and outdoor soccer up until I graduated. Now, not so much. B plays softball during the summer and basketball over the winter. And there is NO way I’d suggest co-ed softball. B is waaaaaaaay too competitive for my taste.
I use my treadmill a few times a week, but we’re not active together. Well, we are, but I’m not going there. 🙂
B’s competitive streak isn’t the only thing that keeps us from being active together.
I’m embarrassed by my lack of stamina and physical abilities.
Being fat holds me back from a lot of things. B would never make fun of me for my lack of abilities, but I’m still afraid to do things in front of him. When I work out, I prefer to do it when I’m home alone. If B is home, I have to shut the door and I’m not entirely comfortable working out. I really don’t want my husband to see we huffing and puffing and sweating like a whore in church. Not attractive.
