My Favorite Mommy and Me OC Activity- An OC Mommies blog contest entry

My favorite activity to do with my son is Stroller Strides of course!! I teach the classes here in Costa Mesa and love it! I'll give you the top 3 reasons I love Stroller Strides in Costa Mesa:
1.Fitness!
I love getting a work out and love seeing muscles! I never thought I would be in better shape after having a baby, and I love knowing that my husband thinks I'm in good shape and love the ability to work out 4 days a week. It has provided me with CONSISTENT EXERCISE and accountability. I love taking care of my health.
2.Location!
I teach it at Tewinkle Park- an AMAZING, huge, park with a multi million dollar playground, lake with ducks, 4 baseball fields, hills, wide paths, hidden picnic benches, huge grassy fields, and tons of wildlife. I just love getting outdoors, spending time in fresh air, EXPERIENCING the seasons. It's also close to the fairgrounds, my apartment, and a dog park, and tennis courts. I love letting my son crawl after class on the playground's rubber ground. I love thinking that many years from now, I can take him there and have so many memories come flooding back. As I've heard before, what a great use of our tax dollars!
3.Socialization!
I've gotten to meet some really great moms, share advice and even swap toys! I love how much faster the workout goes when we can chat. I love hearing them complain that they were sore the next day or that the workout is great. I love being able to have Timmy play with the other babies while we stretch. It's a great chance to be friendly so we don't get rusty social skills since we hang out with babies/children all day! ;)

Those are just some of the many reasons I love Stroller Strides!!
