Today I opted to skip out on the ol’ run and do some cross training. Given it was:
A- Too hot to run at lunch [*ducking*….I know…I know….]
B- Kids are on break and around
C- I still am babying the almost, but not quite 100% hammy and have felt guilty reviewing my cross-training efforts from 2013.
Being the glass of class that I am, I hit up Amazon prime and found a Jillian Michaels video (two steps up from the Youtube vide with a “best mode” poster I found last time I was suddenly inspired to spontaneously cross train) and set out. Before I could enjoy 3 minutes of it, I was quickly reminded why cross training at home with kids is always interesting.
At one point I got hot and took my shirt off….
Chocolate: “Mom [points to TV screen] she has packs on her stomach, where are yours?”
Vanilla quickly joins the conversation – “Yeah, you’re right, I don’t see any packs. That’s no good.”
Strawberry: “She has bumps on her back, are those packs?”
The conversation continued:
Strawberry: “Remember when I was going to eat my M&M’s for this New Year’s?”
Chocolate: “That’s an amazing New Year’s Revolution.”
Eventually one child wandered into the room and promptly stripped down to nothing asking questions about football butt naked and others drifted in and out of synchronized workout efforts.
Is it frustrating refereeing arguments instead of getting my plyometric exercises juuuuuust right? Um yeah, sometimes, but with smiles, giggles and conversations like these how could I ever have a boring workout?
What’s the funniest thing someone told you while working out lately?
