P90X — 90 Days to Get Fit
I remember that the one goal that motivated me during labor and delivery was the end result . . . a baby. Each contraction or “hug” brought me one step closer to meeting our son. As each muscle tightened and pushed down, I knew that there was one less squeeze. One down . . . a few more to go. I had a precious
goal person that I was excited to meet. I could always keep working in order to meet that baby.
Well . . . three precious goals.
Mr. Smackdown . . . Mr. Me-Too . . . and Mr. Smiley.
They were worth the work. They were worth the discomfort. Their births were each unique and special, and worth every calorie of the self-control, focused relaxing, and engagement with the raw process.
I loved giving birth. I don’t really want to relive their births . . . but I enjoy remembering these very human experiences.
I am going to embark on a new birth. And no, I am not pregnant. Another story for another day.
We eat well . . . organic, no white sugar or flour, take our cod-liver oil, ingest fermented food along with some additional probiotics . . . yada yada yada. But there is one thing I don’t do well.
A re-birth of the old Granola Mom that bears witness to 3 childbirths to a new Granola Mom 4 God who wants to glorify God in my body . . . and keep up with the Hottie Hubby on the slopes . . . and run around with my increasingly active munchkins.
I compare the birth process to my new endeavor which I think could potentially be more painful than childbirth . . . but gratifying. I have a goal. At least this goal won’t pee on me . . . I hope. I won’t attain my goal in 16 hours of continuous labor. We are talking 90 days . . . and then a lifetime of maintaining my fitness.
