Work it Out...or Off!

After last weeks treat-fest, I thought I should share my park workout with you all. Kinda balance the yummy with the workout! I take the kiddos to a little fenced in park by our aptartment. They play while Mommy works out. The nannies usually look at me like I am nuts. So what, it keeps me in my jeans, and you know how I loves me jeans!
1) squats- 3 sets of 20
2) walking lunges-3 sets of 20
3) step ups-3 sets of ten on each leg
4) calf lifts-3 sets of 15
5) pull ups-I can do four, I'm working on getting that number up.
6) push ups-3 sets of 10
7) park bench dips-3 sets of 10
8) v-sit abs-3 sets of 20
9) plie squats-3 sets of 20
10) one leg dead lift-3 sets of 10
11) single leg squats-3 sets of 10 on each leg
12) power walk-30-60 min.
13) stretch-hold for 30 seconds

  1. I need to start a regular routine. For the most part, I just take walks each evening to get my exercise.

  3. Great idea to work out while your children play. I just sit on my butt and watch. It is probably why I look like Mrs. Potato Head and you look great! :)

  12. Nice counterbalance to last week's TT. Those nannies are probably just haters... you are right to ignore them.

  13. You go, girl!!! Wow, that's a great workout you're doing! Don't forget to vary it to avoid muscle memory and all that...

    Happy TT!

  14. I used to do workouts at the playground when my oldest daughter was little. Now she is 16, and the little one is 4, I lost of bit of my determination - but you are such an inspiration.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  18. Wow! I should follow your example. Or at least take the clothes off my treadmill and hop on for a while.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Yep - sounds just like my boot camp that I go to. You rock!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Great post! Good for you for making the effort! I LOVE the gym so I know it's hard to stay motivated when you are on your own. YEA!!

    Happy TT!

  28. You go, girl! I used to be able to do all of this! Well, most of it, anyway!

    WTG!

  29. Good for you! I just started at Curves so it is quite a challenge for me starting from scratch. But, I must stay positive and remember that at least I am doing SOMETHING!

    ReplyDelete
  30. ermmm, ummm,,, I am not even sure what half of those are....
    I am out of the loop....
    squat...something I do on the toilet. no where near that often!
    walking lunges...ermm. clueless.
    step ups on one leg? How can you step up on a leg?
    I couldn't pick up a calf! I would have to find a farmer and mother cow that would allow such a thing. Pick her up 15 times! She would bleet her arse off!!! probably kick me too!
    Oh never mind...tee hee....
    Terrific Thursday Thirteen!
    My TT is posted.
    Have a wonderful day!
    Happy TT'ing!

  31. Can you send some of that determination and motivation over this way?

    ReplyDelete
  32. I wish we could go to the park together; you'd soooo motivate me!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. My knees won't handle the squats anymore. If I get down it will take paramedics to assit me getting back up.

    ReplyDelete
  34. hey girl that is an awesome workout! i like to bring some resistance bands with me and do some upper body work too! its fun for you and the kids!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I go to the gym on alternate days but I think I need a list like yours. FIRST, I'll have to find out what some of them are. Thanks for this.

    ReplyDelete
  36. OK so does lifting coffee in the morning count as exercise? It is the extra large mug....

    ReplyDelete
  37. Great idea!

    I'm going to have to skip my workout today because of a family commitment, and now I feel even worse about it. *sigh*

    ReplyDelete
  38. That's a great idea and a wonderful way to make use of your time at the park! I so need to start exercising more...

    ReplyDelete
  39. And...to think that I would like to just be able to take an evening walk!

    GO YOU for being able to work out like that!

    And...by the way...I just found your blog...hope that you'll visit my blog as well and say hello! =-)

  40. I'm with tink; tired just reading your post! LOL

  41. It almost makes me want to work out.....almost.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Hmmm, time to get back to the Y...

    Who cares if the nannies stare at you - aren't they all like 17 anyway?

  45. That's great! I like to work out during the day too (in the house) ....and Cameron looks at me like I'm nuts. I jog at night with the dog, and I just do different things during the day like free weights, The Firm video, or just pushups and crunches. If anything, it at least makes me feel energized! I doubt I could do a pullup. Four pullups is really impressive! I remember in Junior High just trying to hold myself up on the bar...and shaking like a leaf.LOL

    ReplyDelete
  46. That is a great idea and use of your time! You go girl!

    ReplyDelete
  47. What are you talkin' about ... oh, excercise - not interested! Good for you though. See ya.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Way to go mom! What a gr8 list...I just did my workout. Funny how my hormones won't allow the excess fat to come off. And I can't get into my jeans. Oh well.

    ReplyDelete
  49. There - you've shamed us all! You're all ready for ski season now - and you'll be so fit you'll be power-skiing uphill!!!

  50. I feel like I'm watching how never to have to be on Biggest Loser. Way to go with staying in your jeans!!

  51. Good for you---way to get two tasks done for the price of one.

    I LOVE your photoshop pen drawing. What's wrong with it??? It's adorable.

  52. When might you do a TT on best South Park episodes

    ReplyDelete
  53. Wow, that would be good, but hard to do...I haven't been watching the recent ones...Suggestions?

    ReplyDelete
  54. This is a great list. What's even better is that all of the exercises can be done in the comfort of your own home. Even the power walk can be done in place with a bit of extra arm pumping. This would be perfect while watching your evening show or watching the kiddos in the play room. We're getting ready for a trip to my parent's home. 16 hours in the car! This is great for breaks while the kids play. Great Job.
