“Mom can we workout together?” YES!!

My son is 12 and in the throws puberty.  He’s just started to get that young man surge of hormones and a strong desire to be stronger!!  We now go to a gym where we can workout together (previously the youngest age allowed was 14).

The plan is for him and I to get the workout done directly after school so the “EXCUSES” of dinner, homework, exhaustion, housework, etc…don’t get in our way!  It’ll be a big comittment on my part and his~ BUT,  It’ll be so worth it!

I am very confident that by summer with consistent effort he will be bigger and stronger than me! FUN!!

Today, I’ve been trying to catch up a bit on the work front…It’s crazy how FITNESS Season hits hard after the holidays!! I love it!  I spent the morning answering emails and catching up on facebook.

Then I hit the gym for a quick yet effective 10 min run and 20 min back, shoulder, biceps and ab workout– GOOD STUFF.

Now it’s time to get outside!! It’s 55+ here and a GORGEOUS afternoon for another fire!! Love ya’s,

  1. Yesterday when I got home from work, my 16 almost 17 year old baby daughter…she is the last of 5 the only girl… took the dumb boy dogs for a walk. We went to the practice football field, and played “angry birds” with our corgi. We ran and laughed and chased the dog, it was so much fun. We both got a lot of exercise in with a lot of fun mixed in. Then walking the mile back home, we were so silly doing huge steps and dance moves. I felt like I was a kid again! Enjoy every moment of every day with your kids.. It is good you are blogging and putting it down to remember. You will look back when he is a foot ball player, wrestler, olympic weight lift gold medalist and remember you two working out in the pre puberty stage!…;0)

  2. AWESOME! blogging is so great for keeping memories! I’ve really been enjoying the time together with my son- there’s a window of time that is getting shorter daily for us to BOND. I plan on using it wisely!
