New passion in life
....is working out in the gym.
Last time, I used to go to gym only when I gained weight.
Started in April, I went to gym 2 to 3 times a week, each time 1.5 hours to 2 hours. So, I call this my new passion.
Actually, a petite lady whom I met there gave me the inspiration, and now I have the motivation to go to gym more often.
She is a stay at home mom of 4 kids. She is 2 years younger than me. Her kids age from 11 (girl), 10 (girl), 4 (boy) and 1.5 (girl). She goes to gym every day. She told me even first day of CNY also, she was there. She spent 4 hours there in the morning, from 7.30am to 11.30am.
She spends 2 hours on the treadmill, and the rest of the hours on lifting weights. She has to change her sport attires once in between the session. You can imagine how much she sweats during the work out.
A mother of 4 is definitely not an easy task, and yet she can spare 4 hours per day in the gym. I really salute her will power and determination in working out.
During our conversation, she told me she enjoys food too. After the heavy workout, she would reward herself with food that she loves, like dessert and cakes. She also arranges her elder kids to go to extra activities and her younger kids to her PIL's place on certain days, so that she can go for a date with her husband, be it movie or dining. I really like how she arranges her time to do things that she enjoys, and thus lead to a very healthy lifestyle and happy marriage.
She indeed inspired me a lot, and I take her as my gym buddy now. If I am not working, I will also go to the gym everyday like her.
I am now spending 2 hours in line dancing, 2 hours in yoga, and at least 3 hours in the gym every week. In average, I spend 1 hour to do exercise every day. I guess this exericse regime and my normal healthy diet are good enough for me to stay fit and healthy. This also explains why I have no time for another baby. Since my younger is already 5 years old, I am able to do things that I like. I am now in my comfort zone.
