I was the talk of the soccer moms!

Today during my daughter's soccer practice, rather than sitting and chatting for 1 hours with the other moms, I decided to bring my iPod and sneakers and jog around the field for 45 minutes.

At first they all looked at me like I was nuts and when I began to run, they couldn't believe it! When I returned they all felt guilty and went on to tell me all their weight problems and reasons they couldn't exercise. I told them to bring their stuff and we can all do it together at the next practice. I was so proud of myself and may have even started a walking club. Even if they have more excuses, I will still do this for myself!
