Working out....

Since it got cold outside I haven't done much exercise!! I was really good about getting out most days for a walk in the morning with the kids, but when it got cold, those walks stopped and I haven't been motivated to do anything inside. Every few weeks I would think....I need to get up in the morning and do some kind of exercise, but each morning I had trouble motivated myself. Then yesterday we were out shopping for new sheets at Kohl's for our new bed that is to arrive on Saturday and while I was at the second Kohl's trying to return one of the sets of sheets (I found the one I really wanted at the second Kohl's) there was a stand with video games and DVDs. The DVDs were 40% off and I saw one for mothers post birth. It has been almost 2 years since my last child was born, but I thought it would be a good one to get me started. It was only about $10 and has a 12 week program for getting back in shape. Yesterday while the kids were napping I put my workout clothes on and did the first workout, which was only 18 minutes, but it worked my entire body!! Boy, am I sore!!! It recommends doing a workout every other day, so today was a day off. I do plan on working in some treadmill on my off days once I get into a little better shape!!
