My New Exercise Buddy

Thursday, January 15, 2015

So the P90X only lasted for 3 days. I just couldn't put in the time every day, the kids weren't loving my taking away some of their attention time (they're 2 and 4, so it's difficult to explain why Momma Sissy can't hold them for large chunks of time each day), and I couldn't do some of the exercises in my living room. That said, I do like some of the workouts and plan to use them in the future, just not in the specific way it's intended).

I felt the need to bring that up due to my previous few blogs, but it's not my main focus of today's blog.

So I love that Comcast, my cable company, has free workouts On Demand, and I've been leaning more toward the 10 Minute workouts (which tend to range from about 8 minutes to about 15).

The four year old has taken to them and asks when we're going to do them every weekday. Of course, his focus is a little different from mine ("Momma Sissy, can we have a snack after our exercise?"), but he keeps me accountable. I'll be doing the dishes and thinking that I'll just skip it, and he'll come in asking which exercise we were going to do that day.

His favorite instructor seems to be "Mr. Dave" Sinclair, who has a workout that includes a lot of jumping jacks. He loves jacks (he's adorable when he does them), and he's gotten pretty good at hanging in there for the full 14 minutes.

The 2 year old actually enjoys it too; he's big on jumping right now, so he hops around the living room, taking breaks now and again to play with his Nook.

So if you find yourself lacking motivation, all you need to do is match a 4 year old with an enjoyable workout, and you will stay on your toes! emoticon

    That's awesome! lol! It's great that they're getting fun exercise too. I've been thinking about checking out those on demand shows too. I'll have to take a look this weekend.
