28 posts in 28 days

hey all! its been a lil while since i last posted anything real

today we're going to talk about the crazy people at the gym
you know the ones, who after45 min of insanly fast paced jogging on the eliptical, have yet to break a sweat, while me personally am struggling to remember to breathe, and trying to remember my name.

those people who have been up and at it for a while before you even walked thru the doors, and are still going far after your legs are rubber and your arms are jelly

i mean good for you , but come on... stop making us look bad. ;)

then again if you look at it from a mom's perspective and break it down

folding laundry 40 calories,
chasing kids after they get into the catfood, 50 calories,
picking up an indecicive toddler umpteen times ,123 calories
running from the back of the house to the front a gazillion times looking for said toddlers, juice cups, missing cellphone, remote, carkeys, cookie... you get the point... 87 calories on a low day.
dancing with two 30 lb toddlers on either hip. i dont even wanna know how many for that.. tho i do know i get a hefty work out cuz i can't walk for hours after without a wince.

okay so.. maybe i am that crazy person.. just at my home gym instead.


  1. Ha ha!!! I sucked another one in!! :) This should be fun... :) I got on the treadmill the other day (mind you, 5 1/2 months pregnant) and wondered if I would make it to the TWO minute mark, lol... I stuck it out for 25, but it was miserable. I had to stop for braxton hicks, though - that made it take longer! I LOVE your mom's perspective of burning calories! In that case... :)

  2. Oh, it's so true! You do burn off those calories when chasing little ones!

    Thanks so much for the follow. :)

  3. Amen sister!! OMG chasing after these children is nuts!!


Go ahead, make my day
