“Exerwhew”

I have been out of shape since my surgery. Well that and add winter too. I have been walking a half an hour a night for the last two weeks. The weather has been cooperative and warm enough to even walk in the rain with a hood. My daughter rides a bike alongside me and I walk as fast as I can. Boy have I been feeling good, and pretty proud of myself. Tonight my neighbor was riding around on an electric scooter giving the kids rides. My daughter was racing her bike and trying to go as fast as he was. So his completely adorable little two-year-old said he would walk with me. This kid is the cutest little boy; he has a buzz cut like his dad and dresses just like him. We started out walking and holding hand and then he thought we should run. OMG! So much for being back in shape - I could barely keep up with this little man. Whew, I must walk on! I can’t believe I can’t run around the block as fast as a two year old, he may be a very small professional runner, or a superhero...

I so know the feeling. I am looking forward to summer vacation because one of my top priorities is getting back into some type of shape.

No pain--no gain Teachermom. Maybe you should ask the cute two-year-old if he's available to be your personal trainer. He'd run you ragged and have you fit in no time at all.:)
