My parents gave us a van. It’s been a huge blessing for me and the kids! It’s nice to be able to go to one place and come home without feeling pressured to run ten errands and do something fun all in one day. We’ve been going to the YMCA every day this week. It turns out the best motivation to exercise is an extremely social daughter who constantly begs to go to friends houses/fun places/anywhere there’s a crowd. I promised her we could go to “the fun place” (i.e. Y Play) every day for an hour, or in Emmie time, two Team Umizoomis. That results in me making myself exercise until my time is up. It’s a nice reward, having a daughter who is calmer at home and isn’t constantly hanging on my leg trying to have conversations with me.
Work it, girl.
