Somedays I feel like there is no time to exercise in the day. The day itself is one big race from one commitment to another. Other days, like today, I find time, reclaim and repurpose it for the better.
Today the kids were up rather early for a Saturday making quite a racket, so I rolled out of bed to quiet them down. After breakfast came the kids' cherished Saturday morning screen time and suddenly, I realized there was a window of time opening before me. I could have addressed the messy kitchen, the pile of laundry, the muddy floor or the scattered school papers, but instead, I shrugged my shoulders, ran upstairs, bolted into my gym clothes and whispered to the groggy husband "I'm going to the gym, be back in about an hour."
When I got home, nothing had changed. Kids still glued to the screen, dirt, grime and stuff still waiting for cleanliness and order, husband still sleeping. It was like I opened a door in time to a secret world and came back the very same moment without any time passing at all. Cool.
