Technically I am a soccer mom.

I don't classify myself as one though.

 I rarely go to games or practice. Even though it is my child out there I just have no interest in sports.  Last season I went to the first and last games only.

 This season I plan on going to all the games/practices when I am off. Today was the first practice that I was able to go to. I went in with a plan. To walk the field while A was playing and B was hanging out at the benches with his soccer sibling friends. I used hubby's garmin to accurately map my walk. 4 trips around the field (with pauses to check on B and sip water) equal just over a mile.

Sorry for the scroll.  I need to figure out how to make the actual picture size smaller. 
 The fresh air and open view was a nice change of pace.

As I was walking the fields I was a little surprised to see how many of us obese soccer mom's that there are. I know I shouldn't be surprised (hello, look in mirror) but I really was. I kept passing mom's standing around talking. They could have been walking and talking.

It felt good knowing that I am working on myself and getting more movement in my life and hopefully leave the rank of obese soccer mom.

I found an AWESOME picture that goes along with how I am feeling.


  1. Love the pic! And good for you. Soon YOU WILL BE out of that group and part of the 'fit and healthy mommy group' of which I also plan to be a member ;)

  3. I love that photo! Isnt it weird when you look around and go....'Oh my gosh... We should probably all be walking!' Its happened to me and it was semi shocking...
