Okay, I couldn't find my old community journal, so I'm starting a new one! This will be a record of the healthy ideas that work for my family and my situations (which seem to be constantly changing). Current situation: need to get a 2 year old and a 4 year old active 30 to 60 minutes a day. I need to get my own exercise in for at least 10 minutes a day. Obstacle: I am under Dr orders to do minimal ambulation, and my knee can't tolerate much more than daily house chores and cooking.
Girls exercise tip #1: Inflatable swimming pool. They will play for hours and it expends a lot of energy for them. I can sit outside and put my knee up while watching them.
Girls exercise tip #2: House Dance Party. Girls can dance to the music while I sit on the couch to "sit dance" with them.
Girls exercise tip #3: Red Light, Green Light. I can sit in a chair inside or outside, and the girls can have fun learning to follow directions, and get active.
Girls exercise tip #4: Mother May I. Similar to Red Light, Green Light.
My Exercise tip #1: seated bicep curls with dumbell.
My Exercise tip #2: seated tricep curls with dumbell.
My Exercise tip #3: Crunches
My Exercise tip #4: Crunches with a twist.
