We cleaned the garage yesterday so I could get the treadmill and stepper set up. I have been trying to motivate myself and so I got R involved. Part of my issue (well aside from my inherent laziness)…is that there just isn’t time in the day that I can “get away” from the kids to not be disturbed. I used to have a membership to the YMCA but it is so expensive and after the whol eissue of them being so mean to Matthew when he was enrolled in their after-school care…well, I stopped being a member. After the renovations in my house this summer, I had moved the two machines into the garage cuz there wasn’t room in the bedrooms for the big clothes racks…so there they have sat.
Two weeks ago, I told Riley that we would clean the garage and he and I could exercise in the morning (since he is an early riser – I either need to involve him or get up at 4 am – and I’m not getting up at 4 am!). So, he was very instrumental in “helping ” me clean yesterday.
This morning he is up and dressed in shorts and a tee-shirt and is harassing me to start. he has it all planned…”you will go on the treadmill for 10 minutes while I am on the stepper and then we will switch”
Maybe I will lose this next 20# by summer afterall!
