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?
