Okay. So, I am a person who pushes as hard as I can and then more. I give it 150% in my workout. I try very hard to eat as clean as possible (as a woman some days are more challenging than other ;-). However, I have an acquaintance who doesn't feel the same. She basically needs her hand held. She won't workout on her own. To get her a jump start I walked with her while the weather was warmer and told her I would walk 3 days a week with her. Now that the weather is colder, I can't. I have a 3 year old and a 4 month old. Although I am getting hot and sweaty (maybe) on the walks (3 miles + sometimes) the wind is very cold on my babies. They get sick easily (ear infections mostly). I also pay for a gym membership and now that he is old enough to go I have to utilize that 1) I love the classes and 2) I pay for it, I don't want to waste money every month. She has said several times I should walk with her and I states I would walk with her later in the afternoon when it was a bit warmer. She doesn't want to accommodate her schedule to fit in a couple late afternoon walks so why should I risk my babies getting sick and not using the gym? I feel horrible about this, but I can't hold her hand to exercise.
She gets the point apparently. She's not walking on her own. But our other friend started walking with her when she is off. But called me this morning and said she wasn't going to get her baby out this morning bc it was too cold. Well, good! It sounds strange, but it almost confirms my feeling on getting my babies out in this cold weather. Who wants to get their babies out for an hour in 50-60 degree weather with the wind blowing! Crazy. She will have to grow up and just not have her hand held. No one held my hand they supported me, they didn't hold my hand...big difference.
