Dumbbells and Diapers

Hello there! My name is Bethany. I am a mother. A certified personal trainer, a fitness fanatic, and Apple addict. I had my daughter in September of 2011 and was back to working out a month after having her. I understand working, being a full time mother, exercising every day, and eating healthy for both myself and my family. Click on the About Me page to learn more!

Driving down the road the other day - I had this thought pop into my head (as I was taking a photo of the custom Reebok shoes I picked up).  Multi-tasking at its greatest, for sure. 

Being with a fellow exercise/health (weight-lifting) addict has made me realize I spend a good amount of time doing the following:

  • Washing shaker cups.

  • Spending time on Bodybuilding.com (and other websites) purchasing protein, pre-workout, vitamins, and supplements.

  • Sending him pictures of vitamins (and shampoo) that I need him to grab from work.
  • Going to the grocery store at least weekly for important items like eggs, egg whites, cheese, sausage, Quest Bars, and spinach.  We buy bulk eggs and cheese, by the way.
  • Buying new running/lifting shoes.  For both of us - and tweeting/texting about it.

  • Sweating and showering.  I have started showering twice a day since I am doing two workouts a day.
  • I think those dark spots on the carpet in the living room are from my sweating while doing cardio/INSANITY.  Don’t tell him.
  • Doing laundry quite often - the majority of our clothes being sweaty (mine) workout clothes.
  • Now using the fridge calendar (that was supposed to be the family calendar) on my desk for workout planning.
  • Getting up from a non-standing position and grunting and groaning because our muscles are sore from lifting that day or the day before.
  • Sharing funny fitness photos with each other on Facebook and in person.

I love it, of course.  :)  It is great to be with someone that shares the same belief in health and fitness (pretty much).  Ironically, we do not talk about it much since it is a way of life for us.  Is that strange?

How about you guys?  Is a healthy way of life something you have in common?  If so, do you have any disagreements?  If not, does it create any?

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!
