|This is the step we used...|
Toward the end of the workout - when I was running through the exercises a second time, I think Adam must have seen the frustration I've been feeling. He gave me a mini-pep talk about not letting myself get frustrated. He told me "fitness is supposed to be hard! There is a reason why so many people don't stay in shape - it's not easy." The usual, just keep pushing and it'll get easier stuff. And then he said - "Just don't do one thing. Don't quit."
Pfft. I don't know how to quit. Besides, I've already paid money for the half marathon in April and my Dad was nice enough to pay my climb deposit for July. There is NO QUITTING in my vocabulary. :D I admit though - my 6 week postpartum brain made me tear up a bit when he said all this. I wouldn't look at him. LOL.
Now the funny part - Avery took a nap this afternoon - and I decided I'd better nap with her so that if she didn't sleep tonight, I was better rested. I dreamed about doing step-ups..with Avery strapped into the Bjorn. HAHAHA! It made the knee raise part rather difficult!

|It may not look like much - but the purple slip is a beer, the blue slip a brat, and the pink slip...|
As a random side note - We also stopped at a store so that I could buy a sock liner to add to my climbing gear - I promise a post with funny photos of me wearing some of the new gear will come soon!
Would you run for a cream puff?
