I have been doing really great the last few days with my eating and yesterday I actually had a good workout.

I woke up this morning and my whole body is soar from the workout I did. I was quite surprised because I did not think I worked that hard.

Me and Lyra (my two year old) went to the park yesterday afternoon. We walked for about 20 minutes, at a pretty slow pace because she wanted to walk and she cant really push it to a fast pace yet lol. she has short little legs. Then we went over to the playground and she played while i did interval training while I watched her. I set the timer on my watch to beep at 1 minute and then again at 30 seconds, so i would do 1 minute of exercises and 30 seconds of rest.

Exercises I did (1 min each - 3-5 sets)

~ Jumping Jacks
~ Walking Lunges
~ Step ups using the picnic table bench - Wow my butt is soar today from these!!!
~ Push ups off of the top of the picnic table. - Pushed off the top of the picnic table with my arms while extending my body so my back was flat and my body was angled. Really worked out my chest more than i thought it would after only 3 sets.
~ seated tricep dips off of the edge of the park bench
~ Ballet leg lifts to back
~ Ballet leg lifts to side
~ Running perimeter of playground

Im sure I looked pretty silly, because there were other parents around at the time but I got a really good workout and I overcame the old parent standby excuse of : "I don't have time to workout because I have to watch my children"

Overall, I am super proud of myself.
