hi, new to group..but I wanted to add a comment. My son hates to workout, but loves martial arts and learning to defend himself(he wants to be a cop when he is older), so every other day me and him will have "training" for about 15 to 20 mins. At one time in my life I was a black belt, so I am just teaching him what I knew..on days his dad is home he is taught more advanced if he wants to learn. Hubby is higher up with black belt then I was. Son loves this..and doesnt even know he is working out emoticon

hugs,

I also went for a walk with my son last night. It really gives us a chance to talk and air out all his problems he has and think it really helps him.

We went for a bike ride last night while dinner was in the oven. I got a smiley face on my calender!

My son has been put in charge of MOMMY bootcamp. I gave him a stopwitch and a calender. He get me motivated and keeps track of our walking and bike riding on the calender. If he sees we haven't gone for a couple days, he is allowed to give mommy a sad face on the calender to get me motivated. He also gives me stickers on days I go longer than planned!

This morning I went for a run with my 10 year old son. He's training for a 1 mile race in August and I'm training for a 5K the same day. We walked 1/4 mile to the start...ran the 1 mile...and walked the 1/4 mile back up the hill home.

I'm planning to take all 3 boys for a walk to the river this afternoon to walk along the shore and throw rocks (one of their favorites pasttimes). The river is about 1/2 mile away from our house and at the bottom of a very steep hill.

Fathers day i spent working on the yard. Raking and leveling dirt, trimming trees with manual hedge clippers, etc. Yesturday was extremely busy but for the life of me, i cant remember what i did or where i went. Does anyone else have that memory problem?? I cant even focus to drive sometimes and i keep using the wrong credit cards in the stores. Im just really mixed up lately.

Well I can't say we did any structured cardio. I did take my Mom out shopping, along with MaKayla (7), Alyssa (9) and Aiden (2). That seemed like a workout within itself. Aiden says "Mean-Bad Mean-Bad" anytime you tell him he can't have or do something. I think I was "Mean-Bad" most of the day. emoticon We also let them play in a splash pool and watched as they played ball and just generally got on each others nerves. All I know is I am wore out.

I challenge us to all exercise more with our children and build a closer relationship with them. It always helps my children open up more to me when we are out walking than any other time. Let's make the most of our time while their out for summer break! Please post your cardio here with your children.
