My new coach

Friday, January 10, 2014

Yesterday I realized that I was going to have to figure out how to exercise during the evening- the time of day that my kids really want my attention. So I figured out how to kill two birds with one stone- I made my 8 year old my exercise coach. I told her that she was responsible for directing my workout. I have to say that she did a pretty good job- and really made me laugh.

"Mom put your butt down"- when I was doing mountain climbers.
"No cheating sit ups with your feet under the couch."
"ok- do sit-ups and then mountain climbers and then sit-ups and mountain climbers. keep doing them until I come back."

The my 6 year old decided to join in and he and I played games on Wii fit.

There's one less excuse I have now- the kids are happy to get my attention while I work out!

Thanks to MostMom- her 1000 days of fitness inspired me to get in at least 10 minutes no matter what.

    Great idea! Not only are you and your kids having a good time together, but also you're inculcating healthy fitness lifestyle for everyone.

Now, if I can get my cat to coach me through something other than opening the can of cat food. :-)
