Ugh...

Trying to get myself back in shape...I don't like this. The last time I lost weight, before I had kids, I used to walk everywhere. Now that is not a possibility. Working out at home is no fun. Especially with a three year old that does not like it when you try to work out....not to mention I have forced him to let me work out the last two days and I have done an hour each day...I am sore! lol I haven't walked this funny since I was huge and pregnant. Hahaha

    lol Why can't you walk? I'm getting restless for the nice days when we can again. Every time I start to exercise again, I get pregnant and don't have the energy lol. I usually find something the kids can do with me and they copy me. Can't say I last an hour, but my abs sure get a workout from laughing at them attempting some things. :D

    It is so cold and windy here lately that it makes it impossible to get out. And we do not have a double stroller...and when I walk to work out...I walk! lol I walk fast and far. When I lived in California and wasn't married it wasn't a big deal, I would walk for hours at a time.
    Tristen gets so crazy that most of the time when I do work out, I put him in his room with the baby gate up. I feel bad, but that is what they are for. lol

    I HAVE to have a double stroller.. When my last one started falling apart, I told my husband he either buying me another double or a wagon, because I needed to be able to get out and walk in the summer. I know I gain weight in the winter because other than housework, I'm pretty much stationary lol. But summer, oh boy we are walking everywhere. Andrew and Eva have to walk because they are too heavy to push, sometimes we walk at a fast pace sometimes we don't. They can run down the block until they come to a driveway or a corner, then they have to wait...or run back and forth from me to whatever is blocking them. I know it's not the constant cardio for me, but it's wearing them down and then they nap so I get time to do cardio at home when they nap.

    I want one of those ones that have the little stool thing on the back for the older kids. I think Tristen would actually sit or ride on that one because they can stand or ride.

    Oh yes! I've wanted one of those since they came out. Somebody beat me to one at a garage sale last year.

      Ugh I'm there with you! I weighed 125 lbs before I had miss Nina...now I, well, let's say after 3 years and another baby I have 85 lbs I want to lose XD I used to bike ride for miles every day and was in great shape! Now though, I can't. For one, my bike Trailer only holds one kid. For two, Elodin's only 4 months old and cant be in one yet, anyway.

      But I've been trying to work out here at home! Plus our apartment has a 24 hour gym with lots of nice equipment that all residents have keys to, and can use literally any time of day or night, so I've been goin in there for a little bit laaaate at night when they're asleep. I aim to be back to pre-Nina shape by Christmas (hopefully sooner!) but it's soooo hard >.<

      I wanted to get a bike but my husband swears that I am too accident prone...I mean I've only had like 6-15 little broken bones or larger injuries...lol
      I am trying to learn to force myself to set a time frame but I love donuts too much!

        Mine cry everytime I try to do any exercise. It is so hard to get them to let me do anything.

          Have you tried Yoga? I swear by it. I try to get an hour or more in a day and yoga has a way of relaxing me as well as getting me in shape. There are poses that are actually fun if James helps out.

          I have tried yoga. I actually do a lot of it. Mostly for stretching and it really helps with my carpal tunnel. Sadly it doesn't seem to help me with loosing weight. I love to do the yoga and pilates, I always feel taller and stronger after doing them for a while.
