Between my Wednesday morning track workout and my Saturday morning Cross Fit class, I'm perpetually a little (good) sore underneath the surface. But because I didn't make it to Cross Fit on Saturday, I'm trying to put my finger on that "ooph" I feel in my butt and legs whenever I sit down or climb the stairs. And then it hit me: I've been squatting at every opportunity since last week's post; making squats a normal part of daily activity. I hadn't considered squatting to get something out of a low cupboard or while making a sandcastle at the beach a "workout," but according to my glutes and hamstrings it is, and the mystery soreness is solved! That, right there, is the key to finding fitness in the chaos of motherhood: multitask at every turn!
Which brings me to the winner of Katy Bowman's Aligned and Well DVD, "Down There" for Women. The scientific process for selecting the winner went as follows: Each of my daughters selected a number, which corresponded to a comment left on Monday's post. Here's who they picked.
Then I put those numbers into a pot and let The Boy pick one out. Here's your winner!

Another important tip for finding fitness in the chaos of motherhood: Go to that fitness class, even if you show up late. Dirty looks be damned. Now, I gotta go--I'm late to yoga!
