Exercise Much?

As a matter of fact, yes.  Yes, I do.

OK, so my workouts aren't necessarily your traditional "go to the gym and run on the treadmill before lifting weights" sort of workout.  This morning I had to change Sadie's crib sheet.  Seriously, why do they make them SO tight?  It took forever to get the dirty one off.  I wrestled with the new one for so long that I ended up taking the whole mattress out of the crib, and even then it was a battle with the sheet.  By the time I'd finally gotten the sheet on and the mattress put back in bed, I had a broken nail, was sweating, was short of breath, and I think I pulled a muscle.  I then started thinking that I'm all over the house most of the day chasing a very fast-moving baby, and I'm squatting and bending over to lift seventeen pounds many times a day.  Some days it feels like a hundred times!  What exercise routine commonly includes one hundred squats while lifting seventeen wiggling pounds?

So when I ate chips with my Weight Watchers meal for lunch, I didn't feel guilty.  Because yes, yes I have exercised today!

I couldn't have said it any better! I have totally given up on changing the sheet without removing the mattress from the crib.
