Energy for a workout?!

My muscles hurt and I like it. Weird I know. At least they are sore and I know that good is going to come of it.  It has been way too long since I have worked out. Geesh....two kids later Ive got some bum toning and loose tummy to fix!
Everyday is pretty much a work out for me. A lot of calorie burning from the time I get up till I go to bed.  Any other Stay at home mama's get what I mean? 

No sitting. The only TV I have on in the day is cartoons. It is non stop from crying needs to washing my 3 yr olds face after a sticky candy cane, making breakfast, lunch, dinner, diapers, loading the kids into their car seats, load myself in the car then realize I forgot something in the house... back in the car. Then "oops" forgot baby bottle in the house. Get back out of the car. Back in the car. I forgot to let the dog out to pee...back out of the car. Dog peed. lock up for the 4th time...finally back in the car ready to go out.
did I forget....
Up the stairs to laundry, down the stairs Those baskets get heavy when you have toys loaded on top of them as well. Or the always "Mom I'm hungry, can you get me this! Okay I'm done the vent.  Kids are exhausting! I love them with every ounce of they sure poop me out.  I seriously never stop moving.  I would love to know how many calories that I burn throughout my day. It is scary to know what I wouldn't be burning if I didn't have kids to chase after all day.  When I purchased my gym membership at the YMCA I was a little nervous to find out if I even would have any energy to work out after the end of my busy Stay-at home mom day.  So after one week of trial...I LOVE IT!!  I look so forwards to going to the gym at night after the kiddo's are in bed.  Even though you may catch me out of breath on the treadmill it is a quiet time for me. It is "Me" time. ...Much needed. Who knew I would come home after and feel happy, energetic and very refreshed? I sure didnt. I think I am going to like this new lifestyle.  It has only been a week, but I know that it will be very good for me and my family to keep this up.  my tired rut is over. I like having energy!


  1. I know what you mean! I have tons of energy after I come home from a workout! I went on Tuesday and Wednesday night. I missed last night cause Joelle's got lice.
