Part of incorporating more exercise into my days has involved working out how to manage it with the kids.
My older two girls have kinder twice a week for 5.5 hours - and that's the only 'one child' time I have, so I thought it made sense to try and exercise in that time.
Earlier in the year when I was only doing an outdoor exercise program, we sold the 'fancy' pram and got a good old Mountain Buggy which is far more suitable for exercise running/walking.
And someone loves it...
|In her 'tent' as she calls it!|
|Snug and warm, with snack in hand, on a cold winter day.|
|Wired for sound and of course with sunglasses on|
|Earlier today ready for a run and then a play at the park.|
Her weight and the added weight of the pram as I run certainly makes for a decent workout - especially on a windy day when the canopy fills up!
All she asks is for a play at the park after we run - and that's never too much to ask.
When you commit to being a stay-at-home-parent sometimes it's just about thinking about your life differently and fitting things in, in the best way you can.
Who knows what delights you might discover along the way - like a child who loves to 'run' with you.
