It’s been a great long while since I posted anything about kids and exercise. Getting them off the couch in winter (or any cold weather) is more of a challenge, than when the sun is shining. Lets be honest though, its usually not their fault. They would be happy running around in their underwear in a snowstorm, if I would let them. I however was meant to live in Southern California, where you can play comfortably outside all year long. Then OF COURSE I would be outside with my kids more often.
But yesterday, I had a reason to get moving. We got a coupon for a free family day at our rec center pool (indoor pool that is). It expires soon, so we headed out. The great thing about swimming in a public pool during fall and winter, is you have the pool to yourself. Even on Saturday afternoon.
I wish I could say I swam with them. That’s what a good mother would do. But as soon as I get wet, I get so cold that I want to go home. I like to blame that on my thyroid. So instead, I brought my big, awful GRE study guide, and hung out on the side of the pool, book open, pretending to study, but really people watching.
