Every once in awhile I get bit by the exercise bug. I draw up a plan for doing cardio, strength training, and yoga several times a week. I make a schedule. I read a couple of magazines. I dust off a few exercise DVDs I bought back in the 90s.
It never lasts.
This was one of those weekends. I put on a DVD that combines cardio and weight lifting in a series of short segments. Thinking I was putting on a Thomas the Train video, Oscar came running into the living room. Then he stood and watched, puzzled, as Mama jumped around imitating the lady on the television.
He proceeded to “spot” me by jumping on my back while I was doing Child’s Pose, trying to lift up my head while I was doing crunches, and applauding happily after each segment. I’ve never enjoyed an exercise session so much in my entire life.

Exercise with your own personal cheering section — awesome!
Come to my neck of the woods and do Nia with me, Sandy.
Their climbing all over you does make your calorie burn higher. 🙂
Maybe your former student asking if you had your baby, had a psychological impact on you, probably if you would run from room to room, throw yourself off your chair, jump up & down, etc. you would probably get ALOT of excerise! Keep up the good work.
Oh that sounds absolutely delightful.
