We did it!

We did it, we did it!! (picture Dora with purple backpack).

Today the Amazing Racer and I exercised together! Now, don't get me wrong, it is not like we are sloths or anything, but creating an environment conducive to structured exercise is tough.
Listed below are some of our past efforts.
*We tried walking the mall with all the seniors in the am. As we pushed our strollers and herded kids away from the likes of Puppy Palace, Disney and Build-A-Bear, we were, literally, being lapped by the seniors. Funny, but sad.
*We walked at the park. Similar to above, only there is a giant playground calling out to our little ones and each lap produced a full on whine-fest.
*We thought about walking around the neighborhoods. Except that we live on the surface of the sun (or so it seems)!

So, today we did it. We dusted off the exercise video and we did it...beginning to end. We do wo while refereeing an argument upstairs, consoling a crying baby, and doling out Capri-Suns...all the while doing many of the exercises with a toddler hanging off some appendage.

I think we should get an extra activity point for all that, don't you?
