When It's Cold Outside

This is cross-posted at Two Real Women.

In my many years of being chunktacular (how do you like that word?), I have learned that little things make a big difference. For example, instead of eating a little peach, I'd eat a little (pint) of ice cream. That's a big difference. But, I'm not here to talk about that.

I'm here to talk about activity and how just a little exercise can make you feel better. Unfortunately, we're still in a deep freeze in Chicago, but there are things I can do inside my home. Am I bench-pressing my 1-year old? No ... But come to think of it, I could... hmm.

No really, but I am trying to do more with him: Now that he's running, I'm chasing him around our house. Also, I'm doing more activities on the floor with him. I honestly can't wait to teach him duck, duck, goose. The bottom line is that I'm striving to watch less TV and play more. What are you doing at home to keep yourself active at home?

I SHOULD vacuum more. Luckily AJU5 loves the stairs, so I get quite a bit of stair work-out in. It also isn't bad hear (weather wise), so I am still able to get out and walk.
