This weekend, I decided to take my daughter out for a bike ride. First, let me say that taking her out on her bike is something I gladly hand-off to my husband….every time. But, I decided to do a “new thing” last weekend. For one, it has been raining the past few weekends and that particular Saturday was absolutely gorgeous! Secondly, she really wanted to ride her bike! (She just got it for Christmas!) And, thirdly, I’m her mommy, she’s my princess, and my not wanting to sweat shouldn’t trump my quality time with her. So, we went outside and had a complete blast!
She learned how to turn. HUGE!!! She’s pedaling quite well (on smooth surfaces). And, *blow the trumpets* she gave me a WORKOUT! I was running down hills, y’all. Have y’all had that moment where you’re thinking, “Oh my gosh! I am my mother!” Me running down the hill in my faded gray shirt, workout pants, boobs bouncing, looking crazy. <—My mother ALL DAY! (Love you, Ma!) And pushing her back up the hill, diving in bushes to save her from crashing….hilarious!
This year I’m trying to be more active, not because I need to lose weight (which I do) but simply because there are health benefits to being on the move.
Here’s to more moving in 2014!
What are you doing to ensure you get up and and at ’em?
