Warm-up: 7 burpees and 2 laps around the Farmer’s Market for ‘72 (the year I was born).
The Thang: It’s my birthday (9/9) so we did 9 reps of 9 different exercises (sit-ups, lunges, leg raises, tricep dips, plank jacks, windmills, donkey kicks, step-ups, and little baby crunches). After this set of 9 exercises we did 47 jumping jacks (for my age). Then, we repeated the set of 9 exercises and 47 jumping jacks. To round out our time we rolled an exercise dice and did 7 reps then 2 reps, etc…
Cool Down: 7 squats and 2 toe touch stretches
The Skinny: As I get older and watch my kids get older I think back on the years we spent raising them. They are almost completely out on their own. I want to encourage the mothers of younger children to stick with it. The days are long, but the years are short. Dealing with all the fussy eating, preteen moods, and teenage angst is worth it. There will come a day when you look up and realize that your kids are doing great and all that hard work paid off.
