My daughter is serious! Seriously on my side!

Tuesday, December 31, 2013

Yesterday I asked my DD8 if she would be interested in being my workout buddy and I could barely finish my question before she jumped on it! Lol We talked about of keeping up with it even if we don't feel like it at the moment. Perhaps doing a "Walk Away the Pounds" 1 mile workout before school of a morning. She loved the idea and I love her enthusiasm! So we were scheduled to begin today...

After a loooong emotionally exhausting day, I certainly did not feel up to it. I begged her to wait a bit until dinner settled. She gave me the stink eye and said I don't think so! She was dressed to "do this thang!"

A 1 mile power walk at home video with Leslie Sansone. The length of the video was 21 min. & I was really thinking I would not be able to finish it by minute 3. We encouraged each other the entire time and gigged a bunch. Needless to say, I sure am glad we did it! There is NO such thing as a bad workout!

Doesn't she look fierce? Tee Hee!

I love that child...
