Had to pause several times during my workout. Little humans crying. Feed the little and asked my oldest to help mommy workout. He became my own little cheer team.
Also had to pause because my neighbors were complaining about my workout noise. I live in a duplex with very thin floors. I also workout in the middle of the day where it shouldn't be an issue. I explained it's only 30 mins and they stopped.
I could have used my kids as an excuse to stop. I could have used my neighbors as an excuse to stop working out. That is no longer the person I am.
I understand having kiddos can make working out a pain. I understand having joining walls with others can be a pain. But I needed to take the time for myself. For my health. For me. For my children.
How well do you know the people who live next door? Can you greet them by name? Did you forget they even exist? If you answered "yes" to that last question, now may be the perfect time to go introduce yourself.

Made a trip back home & had to take some picks of the neighbors yard. She's been doing this since i was a kid. Witches used to fly thru the sky, coffins would open, spiders would lurk up & down there webs & she made the best popcorn balls ever. #halloween#halloweendecor#spooky#neighbors
Today is a MONDAY! I picked up my @412foodrescue this morning @gianteagle Some nice guys from Clear Blue Plumbing saw the loaded carts. They helped me get everything in the car. Then on Tarentum Bridge Road they warned me about the flat. I pull into the Kmart lot. Call @412foodrescue They get someone to grab the food. I call for help at 9:53 am. At 12:50 pm I decide to walk across the lot to the Donut Connection. A couple guys hear my story. They patch my tire so I can get to @highlandtire and the donut guy gave me an extra donut. I almost start crying because of their generosity. The car service finally calls and I cancel. They got me in right away @highlandtire. Nice people are out there, and they are awesome. So grateful some helped me today. 💕 #neighbors#community#smalltown#smallbusiness#blessed
Who says you can't go home again? This place, this neighborhood, means so much to me and I'm glad that I can go back for all the feels. Grateful for the people who have cared for this little corner of my life for years and the ones who are finally taking a look at the potential of North St. Louis! #home#greatweekend#love#Parnell#Bremen#ouroldbusstop#family#neighbors 🏠❤
Three years ago, Tucker and I had just recently moved into our new duplex. I was a single mom just doing my best to stay afloat. One day my neighbor man across the street introduced himself to me. A few weeks later he gave me this basil plant and a warm jar of jam. I ate the jam but killed the basil plant after a couple weeks, unfortunately. This was the first of many jars of jam. He also went on to bring us cookies, muffins, food, and all kinds of things he had made. Eventually I would return the favor and stated to bring him dinner and cookies too. We talked outside on the sidewalk. When my (now ex) husband returned home he got him a job in his industry. We became friends and I cared about him as a friend. Then about a year ago my marriage ended and I realized that this man was more important to me than I could have ever imagined. He’s my best friend. He’s my person. I am so grateful that he knocked on my door three years ago. #bestfriendgoals#hesmyperson#imhisfavoritepainintheass#neighbors#lifeafterdivorce
