with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
If you read my personal site at all, then you know that I’m a physically active individual. I was a “big girl” growing up and then when I got to my early twenties I learned about healthy eating and exercise. I dropped about thirty pounds and have fluctuated around that healthy weight for the past eleven years (not counting pregnancy, of course).
When I first started exercising, I joined an aerobics class at a gym near my workplace. When my husband and I moved to the small town we now live in, there were no fitness classes. I decided to take up running and he ran with me as I built up my stamina. Once I got to the point where I could run without any walking breaks, he quit. He hated running and did it with me to encourage me along. Have I mentioned that he rules?
Over the years I’ve done a variety of activities and my routine now consists of a boot camp four mornings a week and running/exercise DVD’s on the other days. I prefer solo activities to team sports, mainly because I suck at them. My husband, on the other hand, is a basketball legend around here and plays baseball in a spring league. He’s taken up running lately for the sole reason of staying in shape, but he much prefers team sports.
I asked him yesterday if he wanted to run with me and he declined. He’s a much faster runner (long legs) and he said the only reason he’d want to run with me is so that he could look at my behind. Men.
How about you? Do you and your honey exercise together?
