Before I went to bed last night, the reality hit me that for the next three days I wouldn't have my hubby's help with the grandkids until 5 when he gets home. I don't usually work out after supper, so I was puzzling how I was going to get a workout in the next three days. I wasn't really stressing about it since others have reminded me to make this next two weeks while they are with us a time to focus on my relationship with them. I took that to heart and relaxed about it a bit, with the plan to take any opportunity I find to get 10 minutes exercise in.
I figured out, as I described in my last blog, that I can get some cardio in with the kids. But I like variety, so this morning when I woke up earlier than they did, I had a quick bite of cereal to help me not burn out and did my Jillian No More Trouble Zones workout dvd, which does tons of strength moves in a circuit style. It's not a pretty sight to see me doing that, so I don't want to do it with their little eyes on me, so I was thrilled to get through it without anyone coming knocking on my door. When I peeked out into the living room, my almost 10-yr-old grandson was happily occupied with his Kindle Fire on the couch. I was so proud of him! He's so grown up to just get up and occupy himself.
I think these next two weeks are going to work out just fine. I never thought I'd be able to do what I did yesterday (with working out with them) and this morning. In fact, just this morning I realized my 21 year old son invited us to his pool whenever we want. I bet I'll get some splashing around done today! I hadn't even counted on swimming as a way to get exercise these days.
I feel like a big WooHoo! today!
