Tired of Exercise?
Hurdle #3: NO CONFIDENCE
"I have this doubting voice inside of me that asks whether I'm doing
what's best for Keegan, especially with working a full-time job, going to
school part-time, and putting in 10 hours a week as a graduate assistant to
help cover tuition. After doing all that, I hate to leave him again to
Michaels's fix: "When Jennifer starts feeling guilty about making time
to work out, she needs to think about how proud Keegan is going to be in the
years to come when she's fit and energetic enough to play soccer, baseball, and
basketball with him. I tell moms all the time that it's okay to be selfish in
this scenario. You'll not only set a good fitness example, you'll also be
healthier both physically and mentally -- exercise beats stress! -- which means
you'll be more available for your kids."
