Daughter Doesn't Like to Walk

Monday, April 18, 2011

This week is spring break for the kids. Had to take time off from work because the boys and girls club my 9 year old goes to is closed. It's so easy to get my cardio at work. I'm going to have to work hard this week to get what I need. Mainly because my daughter doesn't like to walk. Don't get me wrong she is active, plays outside when weather permits but the walking thing... she wants to get there and get back.
So today was a new one on her when I told her we was walking to the food pantry. It's over 3 miles there and back and sometimes the bags I carry are heavy. She complained the whole way there... from it's to hot, not like walking in the sun and bugs flying around. Once we got home there was only a 30 minute rest before we were out again walking to the bus stop to go to the mall which I would have walk to if I was by myself.
Need less to say it was a early night for her and I didn't have the heart to wake her up so she could change her clothes and put on her pj's. Little does she know we'll be walking again tomorrow.
