Exercise & Dessert

So I wouldn't exactly call working out a new years resolution. It's was more of a......I know my real stomache's under this layer of fat mission. But being a mother of 2 very young, and VERY dependent children I don't exactly have a large span of my day that I can use for hitting the gym. So I've found 3 things that I do that I can fit into my schedule.

#1 - My Standing Ab's YouTube Video
Thank you my cousin Rachel for showing me this 10 minute workout! I love it because it only takes 10 minutes, I don't get drenched with sweat so I can do it anytime of the day, and it really works! My son will even get in on the action with me!

#2-Valeo Ab Wheel
If you've ever used this wheel before then you know just how hard a work out it really is! The day after I used it for the first time I felt like I'd been kicked in the sides by a trucker in cowboy boots! When you get past being sore you can feel it shrinking you fat each day!
#3-My Double Umbrella Stroller
I looked at about every double stroller I could find to find one that would work for me. I thought about getting a jogging stroller, but I had to be honest with myself and admit I'm not much of a runner. What I could commit myself to was long walks. So with that in mind I knew I also wanted a stroller I could fit in the trunk of my Camry with a load of groceries. That's why I love my double umbrella stroller! It folds up small enough to leave me plenty of room in my trunk and is perfect for speed walks around town. Although it is pretty stiff to get open and closed until you break it in, so make sure you're prepared for that.

And the perfect way to end every workout - a York Peppermint Pattie! I tell you there's nothing in this world better than the creamy minty center of a dark chocolate dessert! They're my weakness and I can't help rewarding myself after a workout with their yummy goodness. :)
