Up And At 'Em

At the end of last week I decided it was time to get back in to my routine of exercise.  At the beginning of the year it was one of the commitments I made to myself.  I was really good for awhile and then in June we went on a 2 week vacation to Florida, since then I have not been able to get back in to the routine.  So, on Wednesday night I set the alarm for 6 am Thursday, got up and off I went on a brisk 2 mile walk.  It felt really good!  On Friday, I did 30 minutes of Pilate's.  My husband works a crazy schedule so on the mornings he is home, I want to get out and walk/run...when he is not home I plan on Pilate's.  My Endocrinologist has been after me for awhile to get in a regular routine of exercise since I have such horrible bone density already.  It's been hard to schedule around children.

On Thursday after I got home from my first day of exercise, I came in cooled down and all of a sudden all three kids ran downstairs yelling mommy's I was gone all night!  Apparently the twins woke at 6:30 am (unbeknown to my husband) came into the bedroom looking for me, saw I wasn't there and then came downstairs looking for me and when I was there started balling.  My husband woke to hear them crying for me.  He settled them down, but it really through them that I wasn't here.  The next morning I woke to our twin daughter (Anna) downstairs crying for me at 6 am!  She didn't even bother to look that I hadn't gotten up yet.  That morning I did Pilate's with my oldest daughter Megan and my twin daughter Anna.  Kids....

I am actually planning on turning my "brisk walk" in to a 5k Run!  A friend gave me instructions she received when training for a 5k.  I've never been a runner, but it seems to be the easiest way to get a good workout in a short amount of time right now.

So, bright and early tomorrow morning I will be on my walk/run!  :)

I am visiting from Bloggy Moms. Good luck! I am a past runner who just had my first baby. It has been almost 5 months since I have given birth and I still haven't started running yet. Walking is definitely the best place to start!
