Cardio.....seriously lacking....

Wednesday, June 15, 2011

I'm struggling to get my cardio in ...it's getting really hard....however...I see a light at the end of the tunnel. The boys are out of school on Monday - and then I can go at 7AM, a resonable time for me....and when they are still sleeping.

I have rocked all of my challenges.....Bootcamp, Spring BootCamp, QuickFire andn Sparkers w/ LTL.....got them all in.....YEAH....however....I don't that good calorie burn without the cardio.

Tonight we have baseball....but can't run to the field because hubby isn't home to take the kids...so it's on me......I'm also not the type to run around the field or in the bleachers - not only do I not want to draw that much attention to myself - but my 12 yr. old would die of humiliation....

He did give me a backhanded compliment the other day though - he said - I'm glad that I don't have a fat mom.....I'm glad I have a normal mom....so SCORE......that's a plus.

Today was duck boat time with the 9 yr. old for his field trip - it was a lot of fun.....

now it's off to bball....

    Do what you can when you can. It's good that you can see the light at the end of the tunnel signaling more running days ahead!

    Sometimes being a mom has to take presidence over getting our cardio. Obivously you had been getting plenty of cardio before - cause you are a normal mom. Kids are so cute. emoticon
    Here's to next week when you'll be able to get out there agian!

    It is hard... that is where I am right now... My girls are on swim team and they have separate practices... so I am there for 2 hours... it's not like I can go for a run and leave one of my girls sitting under a pavillion while the other is at practice... I won't just leave my girls somewhere b/c I need to exercise... but I would love it if I could throw one of them in a stroller... LOL... they are 9 and 6... I just mean it would be easy to watch them that way... I remember back when I thought that was too much.... sigh... I understand where you are coming from... I am exhausted from my work day and then not have time for a workout stinks.... but then I think about waking up early, but I still am so exhausted I can't get up early before work... it is a vicious cycle... I understand and can sympathize....
