I have realized that I use my son, Jake as a convenient excuse for not exercising. Yesterday I took off of work for the afternoon since Jake was getting shots and I was expecting a cranky baby. We get back from the Drs office and Jake takes a 3.5 hour nap. During this entire time I could have easily spent 15min on the WII or doing some "heavy" cleaning. But no, I just sat around on the laptop and then took a nap. And when he was awake he had a few cranky moments but for the most part was a very happy baby. I could have taken him on a walk outside, the weather was beautiful but I was too concerned he was going to have a fussy moment. So starting today I am not allowing myself to use Jake as an excuse, I have the hubby and my MIL to watch him if I want to step out for a walk for 15 min. Even if I am alone and Jake is cranky walks usually calms him down. And every time he is napping I will do WII Fit for 15 minutes. I don't have any real reason for not dong any of this!!

    Great post! It's so hard to find the motivation sometimes, and so easy to find excuses. But it sounds like you've got great determination within you. I know you can do it!
