Getting After It

Lately, with the husband's work schedule, there are many nights where it's just the kids and I.  Working out is a huge part of who I am, so skipping a one is not an option.  My kids are not an excuse to not exercise.  They much prefer me to be a happier, healthier mommy.  So working out with them it is.  There are many benefits to bringing them along.



I get to work out.  



My kids see how important fitness is to me and I'm modeling a healthy lifestyle.  




At least one of them is getting exercise as well.  Soon enough, Izzy is going to want to start riding her bike.  Now that's going to be a challenge, but a challenge worth taking.  



And I get to spend time with my kids.

  2. Making it happen, no matter what! Love it! I'll remember this post next time I feel "too tired" to workout or get a run in... If you can do it with 2 kids, then I can get out there and make it happen too!

  4. This post makes me so excited to use my jogging stroller soon. Just waiting for my baby to be "ready" for runs. I hear it's tough, though! haha

  8. I really love this so much. My sister has 2 kids and has always made it a point to fit in workouts no matter what. The kids see it as part of the day and I think it sets such a great example .

  10. Love this! I need to be more proactive about working out with the bambino. Although I must say, I do love the alone time too.

  11. Love this!!! Inspiring and so important for people to realize that when you make physical activity a normal part of the day, it just becomes fun and routine and people start to miss it when it's not there.

  12. I love it :) I already told Colin that if he wants another baby he'd better buy me a jogging stroller first ;) ....it really sucks that I started running AFTER Logan was born. Otherwise I would've got one of those strollers. You look awesome and I love your header!!!
