I am trying to get in shape....it's so hard to leave the house to accomplish this. We have a Y membership and we go once a week and that's about all we can commit to at this time. I am experimenting with a new exercise segment strategy. For 10 minutes a day, I jog through the house. I was super out of shape, the first few days about killed me! But it's getting easier. I set the timer on the microwave. Yes, there is some skill involved, I have to jump over toys, blankets, books, shoes, and the occasional child. At first, Charlie followed me crying, trying to catch me...but he was getting exercise too! Today, I had 5 of the kids running with me...and it was kind of sweet, but also annoying...because they are in MUCH better shape and were running circles around me. It works. It may not work for everyone, but it works for me. Next week, I will add 5 minutes to the workout...although I'm not sure what to incorporate?
