Another active day with the kids!

I had another active day with the kids today!
My friend Kerry & I took our kids to Granite City Gymnastics for open gym today. The kids had a lot of fun & got in a workout as well lifting them onto the bars to do flips, helping my 2 yr old jump on the trampoline (not to mention chasing him all over the facility). By the time the 2 hours were up you could tell the kids were wore out. I think my son made it about 3 minutes in the car before he was sleeping (it was way past nap time too).
I am very proud of the fact that I have now taken two active trips with the kids in the last 3 days. This is a big deal since I usually have just enough energy to get through the day, much less be that active with the kids. Plus I notice that several times through the day I had to keep pulling my jeans up because they were getting loose!!! Might not be coming off very fast, but I am noticing a big difference in how I feel. Besides having the energy (and the courage) to do these kinds of things with my kids is the real reason I wanted to lose weight in the first place. So it looks like I am on the right track!
