Exercise update

So, since my post last week about the need to incorporate more exercise into my life, I've done the following....




Well, sort of....I've chased 2 children who were doing this to the park and back - 2.2 miles x 2 times last week!




I've played around on this....



With two kiddos - total of 5 hours during the week! And in case you are wondering....I am one of the "cool moms" who slides, swings, climbs with her kids on the playground - no bench sitting for me!

And walked thru these in Independence,TX (home of the original Baylor campus)....



with two kiddos for 1 1/2 hours! L's favorite part was the tire swing in the old tree. N's favorite part was the climbing in trees - the live oaks in Independence are awesomely huge. As soon as Lance gets the photos off our camera, I'll share! And L came up with a new song, "Old Baylor, Old Baylor, I love you" It was cute. Of course Lance and I would love to see our kids go to Baylor, but seeing as how tuition is now $40,000/yr it is EXTREMELY unlikely. Especially since they won't be going to college until 2020 and 2023.

And I also cleaned house (at warp speed) for 2 hours!

So, even though there was one day (Sunday) which I did not exercise, all in all, it was a pretty productive week. Yesterday, I began my playground/walking regime but L took a bad fall and skinned her knees and elbows - we had to quit early. She has been suffering terrible allergies the last few days and it doesn't take much to push her over the edge!

Tonight will be my night off from exercise since I have Bunco - yippee!!

Thanks for the encouraging posts and emails regarding my exercise goals. It's great to have friends who care and want the best for me! I know some of you don't like to post comments or haven't figured out how to yet (took me forever!) so thanks for taking the time to email!

I do believe all that rolling does in fact burn calories. Yay for Bunco!!! See ya tonight for the workout.

AWESOME!!!! sometimes just getting started is the hardest thing. You are off to a great start!!! My exercise regime has begun with the simple choice of using the stairs and not the elevator at church. Ha,Ha!!
