Excuses, excuses


Sadly, there was a thunderstorm on the day I wanted to restart my running. Later when it dried out, it was pretty cold out there, and I didn't have time because there was so much housework. The next day, I was tired...of hearing all the excuses! I didn't run, but I did do a nice walk with Bill and the kids to see the cherry blossoms. It was windy and in the 50s F/10 C (it was 80 F/26 C two days ago!) so no one wanted to be out there too long, but I got a couple of miles in with James on my back for added resistence. :)
This morning, mindful of the Flylady's "You can do anything in 15 minutes!" I jumped on the exercise bike. I did 15 and 15 more. AND....Billy's Backside Bootcamp came in the mail today! HOORAY!

A lovely pic - and the walk sounds like a very good workout. Fun with dh an the kids, too!

You must be strong, walkin with a littlie on your back. :-)

Have fun with the workout - don't think I've tried that one...

Great picture!

I used to love carrying the little guy on my back, but on long hikes dh did that duty. We got lots of use from our kiddo backpack.

Good job getting yourself out there. 'Just do it" really works sometimes... :)
