Secrets of Success

My 14 Year Old Son - My Unofficial Spark Buddy



A few weeks ago I noticed my son getting up early to exercise before school. He was doing push ups, chin ups, triceps and hanging leg lifts. I was impressed and told him so and that I need to start doing that myself. Then I heard the wonderful question "Mom, you want to get up early and work out with me?". On MWF I get up with my son to do push ups, chin ups, triceps, hanging leg lifts and free weights. It is paying off and I get to spend quality time with my son. Life is Good!

    Positive influences will always rub off. My 15 years old does P90x yoga every night after she studies. The first time she did it was to prove to me that I was doing all of the moves wrong. (lol) The second time she did it was because she was sore from the first time. The third time she did it she said it helps her to sleep. The reasons she is doing it doesn't matter to me. I'm just glad that she is doing it. - by ISMILETOO
