I've been wanting to exercise on a regular basis for some time now, and I figure it might actually happen if Benjamin knows there's something in it for him (i.e. the playground). He'll be my coach. I've also been really inspired by Paul, who has been going to the gym regularly at work and has made some impressive progress. I'd really just like to be in shape again. So I'm setting a goal to be able to run to the park (pushing the 50 lbs. of kids + the stroller, which probably weighs a good 30 lbs.) in half the time it took me to walk it, so 10 minutes. I think that's a reasonable goal, and now that it's in writing, it might just happen.
The boys in the stroller, happy to be out for a walk.
Benjamin was running around aimlessly through the park with the biggest grin on his face, SO happy to be outside. Haha...You think we get out enough?! :)
We also hit up a library book sale yesterday, which was a lot of fun. I got a bunch for Benjamin and Peter, and a few for Paul and me for about $1.00 each, and they're all in really great condition! I also bought some old piano duets for Paul and me. When we moved here, Paul couldn't read music, and now he sight-reads most pieces with both hands! So I thought it was time we started playing together.
This afternoon, Paul made us a delicious quiche Lorraine with Gruyere cheese, and we set out for a picnic at the park. Benjamin's head was already dripping with sweat when we got there because he insisted on sitting in the car for a long time before we left.
