I’ve learned to try make the most of my free time while Mabel is napping. And by free time I mean getting all the the junk done that I haven’t been able to do while she’s awake, i.e. laundry and cleaning…nothing fun. And lately nothing has been getting done until Hubby gets home since Mabel has been super clingy and cranky…drooling and chomping on her fists. Her naps are at most 30 minutes, leaving her not quite well rested but with enough energy restored to quickly return cranky in 0 to 60. I’m just wondering when my sweet Mabel will be returned to me?
Anyway, she went down for a nap today and I decided to try to do a short Zumba workout on the Xbox. I’ve been on a fitness and health binge lately and I’m trying to workout everyday, even if it is just for a few minutes. It’s better than nothing, right?
Well, I was doing my best attempt at Latin dance moves and failing miserably. I was trying, I just looked like a fool since I have absolutely no rhythm. I must have been doing something right though since I had worked up a sweat. Suddenly a baby cry came over the monitor…yep, she was up not even 20 minutes after she went down…wide awake. I’ll secretly admit that I wasn’t too upset to go get her though since the virtual Zumba instructor was kicking my butt.
Over a week of doing my Zumba and I have yet to earn a ‘high score’, lol! I just can’t even complete a session for it to save the number of calories I’ve burned. Oh well!
I figured Mabel owed me for this workout interruption…so I made her pay by being my guinea pig with my new camera.
I don’t think she minded…
