Before we get to your regularly (or not so regularly) scheduled Fitness Friday post – please enjoy these other random photos. Dylan had his first skate at the Brainerd ice rink this past week. I’m not sure on the specifics. All I know is he got to skate and he’ll get to skate again next Wednesday too. They wore matching sweatshirts and hats to commemorate the occasion.
Who can guess how long this hairstyle lasted? ; )
She mugs for the camera quite well. When she wants to, that is.
I wanted Dylan to take a picture of my new Lucy tank top (cheated on Lululemon! Gasp!) for my fitness peeps and it turned into a fitness photo shoot. Hence, your Fitness Friday blog post.
Avery was mad that Dylan got to handle the camera, so she DEMANDED (and if you know Avos, you know that its true – she DEMANDED it) that she have a turn behind the lens.
She looked so stinkin’ cute that I picked up my phone and took her picture taking our picture. You’d think I would have learned something from the last time I let a child handle the camera.
She was so cute though!
Anyway, back to fitness. Dylan wanted his turn again (thats why Avery is mad) and wanted me to do some yoga for the camera.
Avery is getting into the spirit of things and assuming her normal pushup position – underneath the person doing pushups.
I’m not sure where she went….
Then my little yogi emerged. The kids don’t see me work out very often since I do it at 5am before they are awake. So when they DO see me workout, they are always compelled to join in. Which is the point of this Fitness Friday post – leading by example. If I start practicing Zumba, they join in. If I do pushups, so do they. Try it with your kids! It seriously works! Eric enjoys going for runs with Dylan riding his bike next to him. And someday, they will most likely run together too. Fitness is important and we feel good about teaching them that when they are young. If only they didn’t get in the way so much….then maybe I wouldn’t have to do it at 5am! Oh well, its my “me” time and I won’t trade it for anything. Extra pushups at 3pm never hurt anyone, right?
Child’s Pose. He does a mean Child’s Pose, don’t you think?
Down Dog Dylan!
One legged dog!
Pigeon! Look at that flexibility!
And here he is attempting a headstand. Don’t try this one at home, Moms. I did and OUCH does that hurt when you fall! He just rolled right out of it. Me, not so much.
I don’t even know what this one is called. I call it an Elephant Stand, but I know that’s not right.
Warrior III. Or an attempt at it, anyway. We must work on balance.
He was hungry for more, but I was running out of info in my yoga memory banks. Tomorrow is hot yoga day though, so I’ll be sure to take notes for him!
