When I was begging for a gym membership a couple years ago, my husband would often tell me to take the kids for a walk if I was wanting some exercise. Let me clue you in on something that my husband does not seem to be aware of, taking three small children for a walk is NOT exercise. One child on a bike, another on a scooter, another climbing in and out of the push car does not allow for much exercising. It can be quite difficult to get your heart rate up when you are walking at a snail’s pace and stopping every few feet to open mailboxes, collect leaves, look for lady bugs and pick up
trash treasures off the sidewalk. Walking with my children is not exercise, it does not count as my cardio for the week but I am okay with that. I enjoy their curious and carefree ways as we make our way around the neighborhood. I enjoy our time strolling and stopping and playing and chatting with each neighbor that we see, that’s the way we do walks these days. The other day my kids returned home from a walk with my husband with a giant zucchini in hand that one of the neighbors had given them. Tonight we went for another walk and brought this chocolate zucchini cake to our zucchini giving neighbor :) No, my walks are not work outs but that’s what the gym is for right?!?
