Sunday was not motivated to workout at all. I just wanted to lay on the couch and take a nap, but my little one will never let that happen. I finally decided that the kiddo and I should go for a walk outside. The weather was not the best, it was cool and sprinkling a little. We grabbed our umbrellas and headed out. I motivated her with the promise to play at the park and then cupcakes. Since it was raining I new we wouldn't have to play at the park, but we walked there anyways.

Once she realized the park was wet she agreed to go to the cupcake store. Of course once we arrived there it was closed. We continued down the road to a new donut store that opened and arrived there and it was closed. We finally settled on a new to us coffee shop for a snack. 3 miles total and a new place to visit (as it has a great kids  area) and we were both happy.  Not the best reason to go for a walk, but I figured even if I ended the walk with cupcake it was better then sitting on the couch all day.

How was your weekend?


  1. Awww. You sound like you definitely have the right perspective toward having fun, spending time with family or daughter, and getting in a little exercise too.

    I want my girls to want to enjoy exercise but right now they still complain when I tell them we are going to go to the Y or do something at home.

    I need to grasp a little of your energy and I need a lot Of SUN!!

  2. That turned into a heck of a walk to find a treat! Definitely better than sitting on the couch all day, which 2/3 of my kids did. Oops. :(

  3. I think it was a great idea to go for that walk instead of sitting on the couch all day.

    My weekend was easy and relaxing.

    About your previous post about Twitter: I deleted my account at the beginning of this year. I wasn't doing anything with it and I don't really like Twitter, I like Facebook more.

  4. Nothing like the feeling of a completed walk/run when your don't want to. Cupcakes work for my son too!
