I've finally started working out again!

Friday, February 08, 2013

Patrick, my 14 year old, is really pushing me to start exercising again. I've told him he can be my coach. This is good, since he is trying to get in shape for track. I routinely find him doing wall sits or other exercises. With his encouragement, I have successfully exercised for three days straight.

Wed: I walked around the high school during one son's basketball practice. I ended up walking for 35 minutes. I felt it in my muscles, but it really didn't get my heart rate up.

Thurs: I walked and jogged around the high school during another son's basketball practice: walked 10 min, jogged 10min, walked 5min, jogged 10min, walked 5min, jogged 10 min, walked 10 min. I felt this more, and was happy with the increased heart rate.

Today: I did the elliptical for 30 min. I ran out of time. All of Stevie's friends came over at 12noon for a sleep over. His birthday was last month, but with all of us sick, we haven't been able to have his party until now. I have all these 11 year old boys over here now. They are behaving, but it's a little hard to keep them occupied for so long.

Hopefully I can continue to work out on a daily basis, or almost a daily basis. My schedule is crazy with work and kids. I may not blog too much, but I'm still trying to get back in shape.

    Great job! My oldest often works out with me or at least keeps me "going." Not only are you setting a good example for your kids, but this probably makes your son feel good that he is "helping" Mom become healthier! Enjoy all the kids!

    Good to hear from you again!

    My boys are 16 and 17 now, but I remember those middle school sleepovers clearly! We have an older 2 story frame house with no virtually no carpeting, and those beasts made so much noise running up and down the stairs it was a little unreal!
