Yesterday was one of those days. Church, Running kids every direction, taking my Mom to dinner. little time for cardio. Started a WATP tape and an argument broke out with the kids. They both wanted to watch different shows on TV. Shut off my tape and had one use my TV. I went off to do strength training - the phone rings and my Mom wants to talk. Off the phone and my TV's not being used so back to the WATP tape when another argument about who had what chair first.
ALL TV'S OFF- coats on everyone and I head everyone out the door to go geocaching (using a GPS to find hidden treasures). Temperature is 12F and freezing but the closest hidden cache is a 1 mile walk. Kids begin complaining but I tell them they just have to walk faster to stay warm. A beautiful walk on a nearby island. We saw lot of geese, gulls and Bald Eagles. The kids ended up racing back and forth to see various things, slipping on the ice and throwing snowballs.
We completed 1 mile in and 1 mile back. I GOT MY CARDIO and one of them said it would have been easier to have just done the WATP tape with me.
I WIN - I got my cardio in and the kids forgot they were mad at each other.
