As you are sitting there reading this post I’m flying to Florida, and if you are reading this post after 2:30 pm EST I’ll already be in Florida hugging the first palm tree I see! It should be gorgeous, sunny, and 80 degrees when I land. Try not to be too jealous. I’m sending warm thoughts your way.
I’m beyond excited for my next few days in Florida, but the feeling of guilt is starting to creep over me. I have not gone anywhere on a trip for myself in 9 years. I have always gone to Florida with my son the past few summers since we moved to North Dakota. The amazing thing is, my son is totally fine with me going to Florida without him this time. He is more focused on making his own plans for while I’m gone. All I can say is that he is a better person than I am, because I would be throwing the mother of all temper tantrums if our rolls were reversed.
Still I feel a bit guilty leaving my husband and son behind while I head off to see friends, family, and learn aerial yoga and silks. Honestly, it is bugging me that I feel this way. My husband heads off for hunting trips all the time, and everything is great while he is gone and when he returns we are all happy (he never has an inkling of guilt before leaving). So why is it I’m starting to feel guilty? I know a few of my friends feel this way as mothers too. Do any of you have these feelings when you are about to leave for a trip and leave your husband and/or children behind?
Alright, I’ll stop prattling on about guilt and be thankful that I’m getting to go to Florida, so we can get to Workout Wednesday.
Here is a 30 minute elliptical workout I found in one of my old fitness notebooks from 2007! I love going through my old workouts and reviving them or tweaking them a bit to make them new! Sorry about all the pink. I kinda got carried away with the Valentines theme. Hope you have a great Workout Wednesday, and remember to stretch when you are done!
