Treat Yourself To A Fun Workout

Earlier this week, I posted two recipes, one for orange sherbert punch and the other for cookies.  Can you tell what is on my mind?  I am trying SO hard to kick this over eating habit that I picked up over the holidays and it is so hard to cut down your food consumption once you start treating yourself on a daily basis!

Yesterday I hopped on the elliptical,  worked on my new suspension training gear and watched what I ate.  This morning I had lost 2 pounds, so I know what I have to do, it is just making myself do it.  I’ve been working with a personal trainer and learned how to use the suspension gear, but my 6 year old saw me pull it out for the first time and decided he’d create a few new exercises for me.  Check them out:

He said this was the hardest and had me do 10 of these, which was no problem BUT……..

He wanted me to do 30 of these and this was definitely a problem!  I made it to thirty with him laughing with each grunt and moan I made after I hit number 20.  Working out with him was not your ordinary workout, but it was a lot of fun!  Do you ever exercise with your kids?  My son loved it and wants to put my suspension gear in his bedroom.  I told him that he was welcome to use it any time, but it had to stay in my room and not find a new home in his.  Can you see him swinging right through the bedroom door on that if he was allowed to use that alone?

  1. This looks like so much fun! I think for parents (like me) who use “Ohh, but I have to take care of the kids” as an excuse for not exercising, it’s a great excuse-shatterer!
