Daily Fit Tip: Promises, promises!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Manic:  Woke up to a sick teenager, which isn’t fun for anyone!  So I wasn’t sure if I was going to get my promised workout in today.

Managed:  Promised my younger kid that I would walk a nearby trail with her on her bike.  And because I promised her that we would do this, believe me, she held me to it!  So my fitness tips for today are:

1.  Promise your child that you will do a physical activity together and it will get done!  Better yet, include the word “today,” and it will get done!

2.  Go on a walk with your child on a bike.  You will be amazed how fast you can run when they ride out of your sight.  So if you want to burn more calories, you walk while they ride.  Your body moves and you and your children bond.

Waiting for her slow, but moving, manic managed mom to catch up!

And today’s movement was free with some unexpected hard cardio when I ran to keep up with my kid! 

When I promised the daily fit tip section on this site, I never promised that I would log miles or distance.  The idea is to find an activity every day that makes my manic managed mama body move! 

I’ll be back with another daily fit tip tomorrow…and that’s a promise!
