Working Out With a Toddler

It’s that magical time. Dinner is on, Bubs is occupied, and I can squeeze in a few planks.


So you would think.

How to plank at home while your toddler tries to sabotage your workout.

I’ve been hitting the exercise hard lately.  I also purchased a Fitbit Flex and really love it! Participating in a fitness challenge has renewed my interest in losing weight.  I definitely gained a few pounds during vacation and I’d really love to be at my goal weight within a year. The challenge is lasting for four weeks and I am halfway through.  I find time to exercise by just walking around the office, doing squats in the bathroom, or creating a standing desk to get some standing push ups in.

I’ve been thinking about starting Couch to 5k because I’m not a runner. Running seems like the easiest exercise with not actually having to have a gym.  It also seems like the hardest exercise because…it’s running!  I’ve never ran.  I mean, I’ve chased ice cream trucks but that’s the extent of my running.  Sometimes I think I should sign up for a 5k and train for it, but I do realize that running sucks and I have very little desire to run.  I want to, though.

I also would really like to join a Moms workout group.  They all happen during the week, and I don’t know if you know this, but…uh…PEOPLE WORK.  I really should look into starting my own Saturday morning Working Moms Workout Group in my area.  That’s a mouthful.
