The Pause

I had another pause. My fitness journey was once again paused although I deviated off and yes I had to grasp myself.
The weather in this southern state was insane. No lights for almost 60 hours, snow (which we rarely get). The fireplace and those logs really burned quick, generator I’m not a fan of continuous use and most of all it was cold. The cell reception kept going out limited text, limited calls and no internet. Just once again insane.
I panicked for a few hours, yet keeping family and fur babies warm, and safe. We experienced life on another level so what happened. Well lots of board games, story telling and jokes. We do this occasionally but somehow the real enjoyment had escaped us. Connecting to my older daughters when the cell tower allowed was like a sugar overload. We baked and cooked because of gas stove and I consumed way too much limited things to do or was it?

Nope it wasn’t. For certain I wasn’t able to stream workouts so during the day light we all danced, boxed, lift weights and used bands. So by night we were ready to wrap up for warmth . Games and workouts and a lot of love to appreciate the strength we had to push through the temporary pause.

LIFE will happen, there are and will be pauses on any journey, how we handle it determines if we stay “paused”, or push through. The time of the pause sometimes can or cannot be predicted but the resumption is there, if we (me and you) make it a choice because the pause is to strengthen us.

So today join me in an extra lift, squat, few steps on a walk or run or just a deep breathe for pushing through the pause.
