Laurie and my kids inspired me... this is pretty funny

Tuesday, July 21, 2009

So I wrote my brief little calorie cycling (haha) blog this morning, and then saw Laurie's status of starting the day right with an hour on the treadmill. So I thought I'd follow the lead of someone who is feeling good today, and I hopped on my treadmill.

Put my laptop on Pandora radio, surfed a little on RealSimple.com, and next thing I knew a half hour had passed!

Here's where it gets funny. I've got an upbeat Jack Johnson song playing on Pandora, and my 11 year old walks in with his new (from ebay) cowbell (the percussion kind, not the cow kind, lol) and my 4 year old joins with his little purple cowbell, and they are dancing around the room playing their cowbells (it was actually pretty good) to the music. Talk about endorphins! It was the best workout, best feeling, and I got through an hour (thanks, Laurie).

In fact, Zack was imitating Will Farrel in the Cowbell skit... folded his tee shirt up and tried to push out his (skinny) belly. Hilarious.

    My daughter used to join me dancing around the room when I was doing exercise videos and it made me remember my mother (RIP) exercising to Jack LaLaine (SP?) on TV and my little brothers and sisters exercising all around her in the living room.
    I bet we learn that our parents value physical activity from that!

    The best times are so often spontaneous. What fun you had and all because you decided to take a morning treadmill workout. Awesome :)

    I am soooo glad that you were inspired to hop on your treadmill today. And having your boys join you and "jammin" had to be a blast! My son joins me occassionally when I do video's. It's so fun to see him try to do some of the moves! LOL

    You made my day Sweetie!!! emoticon
