Not exactly the kind of exercise we are supposed to be getting…
Can you relate to Polly this month?
Yup, this mom knows all too well about running late more often than not sadly!!

I think Moms, perhaps more than anyone, understand this scenario. I kept thinking it would slow down as the children got older, but it mostly just sped up. So, smile and keep going:)
Pretty much! That plus three little ones to lug out of the house and into the car!

So true, Nina. I suppose you could weight lifting into your exercise routine as you lift children and all their gear in and out of the car!
There are definitely times I can relate to this! By the way, is it just me or is exercise spelled wrong?
Ack – good call on the spelling! Gotta fix that:)
Thanks for sharing!
Thanks for visiting, Ellen. Here’s to everyone who is running around!
Very funny & cute comic!

Thanks, Nancy. We have so much fun with Polly!
The shoe could easily be on the other foot … I know many moms whose kids are always running behind!

Excellent point, Janet! Many times Mom is late because the kids she needs to chauffeur are late!
When I was a teenager, I was always 15 minutes late to pick up my cousin. I was never late for work, though. I think it is good to be on time for appointments that are scheduled in your life. But, on those casual activities that don’t involve appointments, it’s good to just go with the flow. =) Great image!

I like being on time, but sometimes the day implodes, or the others involved in my day are late, and then I feel like I’m “on the run” for sure!
So cute except it’s the reverse with a seven year old boy! He is slow…like a turtle…with a broken leg.

Ha! You and Janet are on the same page. Sometimes it is the child who is running late for sure!
Thanks for stopping by, Sarah!
LOL. My exercise is walking around the house trying to figure out where I set down my phone!
I bet we could do a whole series on this topic: looking for the phone, putting children’s toys away, carrying things up and down the stairs…thanks for sharing, Jamie!
That is so funny! I had a long talk with myself this week about exercise. I decided I need to stop PRETENDING that I’m exercising. I’ve been using step trackers for a couple of years now and I work in a large building, so it shows up a pretty significant number of steps just in the normal course of a day. I’ve been counting that as my exercise, when really it’s just the basics of getting myself from place to place and isn’t nearly enough exercise to do me any darn good at all. Now I am trying to add in some ACTUAL exercise on top of the little bit of walking I get in at work, but when you are busy, it is tough to fit in. It’s important though, so I’m trying to make time for it.

It is hard to fit it in. I have a friend who recently turned 50 and she had the exact same revelation. She walked her dog, but it just wasn’t cutting it. She started working out at the YMCA at 5:30 in the morning 3 days a week – her results have been amazing. I’m afraid I’m not up for that early hour of exercise, but I was pretty convicted…
