When Moms Work Out

When I was 18 and single, working out looked like this:

Text a friend for company
Walk to the gym
Turn on ipod to blast SuperChicK
Run on the treadmill for 20 minutes

Now I’m twenty-(mumbles) and working out looks like this:

Turn on exercise video
Pause it
2 cheerio pours
3 minute warm-up
2 squat-and-lifts, pull the kids out from under the table
5 pushups with 2 children and a puppy sitting on my back
Jog down hallway
Break up fight, put clothes back on child, or rescue someone from under a landslide of toys
Jog back
Repeat 4-6x
Give up on video
Wait til Hubby comes home to shower
Tell doctor I get 12 hours of cardio per day

    Kudos to you for trying to work out at home. And this post would be exactly why I pony up an obscene amount of money for a gym membership with childcare.
