My "Personal Trainer"
Monday, October 08, 2012
My little girl is not yet two and she has become my personal trainer over the past few weeks. It started because her brother (who is just shy of 4 months) lifts his legs in the air in an attempt to figure out how to roll over. One day I laid on the floor and did the same and then came down, then she joined us and every time our legs went up we said "UP" and then we did the same with pelvic tilts. Now my little girl lays down on the floor, puts her legs in the air and says "UP" and then pats the floor next her, meaning I need to come play. So lately I have been doing a lot of- whatever those things are called.
Yesterday we found a Pilates workout on our fancy new internet compatible TV. T just LOVED this! She tried to do all the different moves with me and she was more successful with me in some. We also walked the dog and walked for almost 2.5 miles when all was said and done. She wanted to keep going, all snuggled in the jogging stroller, but I had no money or cell phone and decided maybe we should go home.
So I now have my own personal trainer who loves to dance, swing on swings, go "UP" and go for walks, all for free. She also is tall and weighs 33lbs, so she is a great "weight" if I need it.
