After months of non-stop a-working and then a busy but fun BlogHer conference in New York last week, I decided it was time to get back on the exercise bandwagon. As I begun writing my BlogHer post (still in the works), I realized how fun it was to see everyone – but how tired I was. The reason was not as much related to my busy schedule as it was because my lack of endurance (due to lack of exercise).
So – to get my endurance back – I am making a commitment (for reals) to get in shape. Writing this post is a way of solidifying that commitment, as I am sure my peeps will be asking me how it is going and I don’t want to say that I have not got off the couch yet.
I even told my son about my commitment to get back into shape and he has taken on jogging with me to (as he said) “make sure I get a good workout”.
Today we took a jog. My body hurt… I was out of breath.. I got yelled at: my son TechBoy – who is 11 going on 18 – yelled at me if I stopped.
When we jog and my son yells at me to keep going, I tell him he is “mean” and he smiles – probably thinking of the times he told me I was mean when I told him he had to do his homework instead of hanging with his friends.
No technology can help me jog, but I will be looking for technology to help me set up my exercise schedule and track my progress. Who knows?
For now I am enjoying the time spent with my son, even if I am out of breath the whole time.
More online exercise fun: I am creating a Pearltree with all the sites I can find for fitness inspiration! I will add more info as I find it.
