Being a Working Mom is Unhealthy

Here it is, Saturday morning 8:30. I should be leaving for the gym; I'm dressed for it. But when considering the drive (20 minutes each way), the kid corralling, required shower at home after and an 11:00 musical we're attending, it doesn't seem feasible. This is why weeks go by without substantial exercise and my 'office butt' will continue to expand.

Perhaps I will do a stupid workout video with regular interruptions from children. Or just walk the dog at a snails pace. I don't know how I'm going to be able to do the Gladiator Rock 'n Run race in a few months; I'll never have the stamina or strength! Being a working mom is physically unhealthy I've concluded.

UPDATE: I ended up putting the not-so-l'il chicken hawk in the Kelty backpack carrier and briskly walking around the neighborhood and doing step-ups on the sidewalk curb. Then instead of the concert, I did some chores. Maybe I'll go to the gym another day...
