My wake-up call

Having a food blog and loving to cook, I am sure you are not surprised that I could shed a few pounds. Being a full-time working mom of a tot, I have always contested that I have no time to exercise.

I'm trying to change that. Got up at 5:30 a.m. this morning and went for a walk (gotta start things slow, people). Forty-five minutes later, I quietly entered our condo but Jeremy and Jack were awake and in full-swing.

I did a few sit-ups as Roscoe the cat rubbed against my head and Jack sat on my stomach.  I got a shower; my husband left me a hot cup of coffee by the sink (which I had kiddingly asked for as I headed to the shower).  Had a chance to read the Wall Street Journal, which touted lower housing interest rates for summer, and eat breakfast with Jack. I even had five extra minutes to write this blog post for goodness sake.

Shoot. So exercise is good for you.

Won't you join me?

  1. I've recently switched from the "It's too cold to exercise" excuse to "It's too hot!". Please be an inspiration to us all. I could get up and get moving, or I could just live vicariously through you and your blog. Hmmm.....tough call......
