Workout Wednesday When You Have an Active Toddler

It is officially summertime in this household...I dropped Madden off for his last day of Preschool for the Summer this morning.  You would think that I would be ecstatic about starting our Summer activities together, but I gotta be honest, I'm a little sad.  Not only does he LOVE school, I LOVE those three hours of alone time everyday to bust out my errands, cleaning, laundry and of course getting a great workout in sans my very busy 2 1/2 year old!
What a difference six months can make!  Picture on the left is from January 2, and Picture on the right is from today; June 19!
But a girl's gotta manage, and with that, I'm linking up again with Skinny Meg for her Workout Wednesday, as I've come up with a great workout that I plan to do with him early in the morning when he wakes up!  It doesn't take any equipment except a stroller, a toddler and a pair of tennis shoes...and if you are a Mama to a toddler, pretty sure you have all three of those "lying" around ;)

I plan to bring a few snacks, the iPad and some great music to help occupy his time while I bust out this workout because I plan on doubling this routine making it a 40 minute workout instead of just 20.  As with my last week's workout, you can make this as easy or as hard as you would like.  I'm thinking of adding in some jogging and sprinting intervals every once and awhile where otherwise I would be doing the moderate or mild walk.  Plus, if you are like me and live in a hilly neighborhood, the level of difficulty will be increased just from pushing my 32 lb child and 20 lb stroller up those beasts!!

So I'm off to tackle grab my son, strap him in his stroller and attack this routine!


  1. It is so hard with kiddo's but you CAN do it.. :)

  2. Oh your son is so cute! I love the stroller workout, thanks!

  3. I love the stroller workout! My son is 2 as well so this will work perfectly for us! Thanks!
