Playground Workout

On Sunday I woke up and I knew that we didn't have anything for breakfast in the house. I talked the kiddo into walking to Panera for breakfast. It is about 1.3 miles from our house. She agreed and off we went with baby girl in the stroller.

After breakfast we walked over to her school which was just a few blocks away so she could play. While we were there I noticed another family there. A very heavy set dad, mom and their kids. Two of the three kids were also heavy set. Something about seeing that made me want to workout while she played and the baby napped.  I did walking lunges, push ups  on the bar, chair squats and that thing where you hang under the bar and pull up, but you are in a push up position. Technical I know. 

By the end I had worked up a good sweat and we still had to walk the 1.5 miles home. I need to look up more stroller/boot camp workouts I an do at the park while the kid plays this summer. As we walked home my oldest said "now you don't have to workout"!

It was a great Sunday and a change in my workout environment is just what I needed. Sadly, I know there is no food in the house for breakfast this morning. I so need to go grocery shopping today.


  1. Way to multitask! I love playground workouts :)

  2. Yay on getting a workout done while the kiddo played! And never know the other parents may have been inspired seeing you do workouts and want to become more active :)
