How to work out with a baby?

Here is a video of me trying to work out with my baby.  It is not as easy as they make it out to be, expecially when you have a busy baby.  Why are all the babies in the mom and me work out videos so good?  I do not know how the trainer get the baby to just sit there and do whatever the trainer wants them to do.  They need to make a mommy and baby workout video for the busy baby that does not just want to sit there while mom works out!  Here is my attempt of a sample of what that sort of  video would look like.

Walking with a purpose.

This is a book that I read to give me a purpose to exercise, but it did so much more than that.  This is my review of  Prayer Walk: becoming a woman of prayer, strength and Discipline" by Janet Holm McHenry:

Prayer Walk: becoming a woman of prayer, strength and Discipline" by Janet Holm McHenry is one women’s battle to overcome the physical pains of an earthly body and spiritual defeats of this earthly world. McHenry  has been there before and with her book she guides you to be a disciplined  prayerful walker with the ultimate personal trainer, Jesus.

McHenry starts off the book telling you her journey as she became a prayerwalker.  Throughout her book she will lead you to make time to prayerwalk,  explain why you should do it, and the importance of praywalking with a partner.   She also provides exercises and goes over the types of shoes to wear to keep your body healthy.   PrayerWalk  includes a Study guide with scripture references for small groups and a personal 30 day challenge as well. 
I enjoyed reading  Prayerwalk and I like the ease of reading it.  More importantly it challenged me to be faithfully reading God’s work and to dive deeply into the motives behind my prayers to make them more God focused.   I think that this is a good book for anyone looking to get a little exercise by walking and wanting to deepen their relationship with God through prayer.
