Went on a walk today. We’ve been going on a lot of walks lately.
We take both of the strollers. I push Kole in the single jogger and Kenny pushes the double jogger with the girls. They’re getting too big for it. Makes me sad.
Wasn’t it just yesterday that they looked like this
and then this
and now this. With their legs hanging off the sides. They don’t stay in it for long. They ride for a minute or two and then hop out and run ahead of us. Then they hop back in and beg for Kenny to run really fast and give them a ride.
Our walks always end up at the park.
About to give daddy a kiss. He never quite followed through with it despite Kenny’s best attempts.
The goal of the park is to get the girls to exercise and burn off all of that endless energy so Kenny always plays a game of chase with them.
If I’m at the park without Kenny (my life most days) I make the girls run laps. Ha! Instead of chasing them like Kenny does, I stand at the top of the slide and yell at them. “You can do it! Keep running!! WOW you girls are FAST! Here they come through the finish line…and the crowd goes wild!!” They love it. And I get to be lazy.
I’m not always lazy though. I can kick it in gear when I need to. Like right now – since I successfully gained three pounds in the last two weeks. Jeans are feeling tight. It’s time to get serious again. Anyone else setting the age old New Years goal to lose the holiday weight? Here are a few posts that may help:
(my go to snacks when I’m trying to drop a pound or two)
(some tunes that get me moving…although I need to do some updating!)
Not that I’m an expert on the subject – because I’m not. In fact lately the only thing I’ve been an expert on is mindless eating. And I’m not a fast runner (as my girls so politely pointed out to me today when I took Kenny’s place and tried to run pushing them in the stroller). Seems dad is a lot more “fast and fun.” They still love me though, Addison assured me.
That’s ok. Slow and steady wins the race.
Besides, with the training I’m getting lately chasing this little guy, I’ll be running circles around Kenny in no time.
And hopefully the jeans will start feeling a bit looser too.
