Walking with a Buddy

Before my second baby, I had a really good work out routine in place. Three times a week, I attended a super fun cardio class where I had made some good friends and enjoyed the positivity of the instructor.

Fast-forward to today, I'm no longer attending that class. I just don't have the time, and the people I knew in the class have moved on to the next exercise fad.

Searching for some inspiration, I called my girlfriend and asked if she would want to be my work out buddy and me up. She just had a baby too and could relate to my problem.

We now walk our neighborhood in the evenings together. It's a chance to catch up and a chance to raise our heart rates for some much needed exercise. It might not be much, but we're getting there and having fun at the same time.

Moms, what is your favorite work out routine now that you have children?

I don't work out. I really should. I like to walk but don't do it often.

I need to start working out again. I've been slacking off for a while now.

 I have always gone to the gym while the kids are in school.

We all take walks as a family, and we play on our Xbox as well.
