I like to workout. Scratch that…I LOVE to workout. I try and get up early in the mornings before Jenny & the kids are up and knock out my workouts. I’ve completed p90x & Insanity, and am now trying an insane hybrid of them both. Through all my workouts, I’ve fallen head over heels in love with yoga. I could do some sort of yoga 7 days a week and never tire of it. This leads me to my girls.
More often than not, the kids wake up before Jenny is up and before I’m finished working out. This means that they come down and “workout” with me. Usually it’s jumping on the couch, or running around me in circles like crazy people. Either way, I love it. But, what I LOVE even more is watching the kids pick up on what I’m actually doing. They love to do some of the yoga moves on my yoga days. They’ll even grab their favorite blankets and call them their “yoga mats.” It’s pretty stinkin’ cute if you ask me.
We’ve even bought a Yoga video for the whole family. It’s full of short routines that you can mix and match, and perfect for all of us to have a good time. While I don’t feel it’s that great of a workout, doing animal sounds while stretching a bit with the kids is always a good time, right?
What are some of your favorite workouts/exercises that you like to do with your kids? We’d love to hear!
