Exercise with Kids

Ember was taking a nap.
The older girls were outside.
Payson was in a good mood.

I’ve been dying to exercise more often. I rarely get a chance without children around, though.

Payson joined me for yoga this afternoon.

He thought yoga was super fun.

He actually did a few poses and did them well 🙂

When the girls came in and noticed the yoga they immediately wanted to join in. I took the yoga DVD out (too hard for them) and put in my pilates DVD instead.

It wasn’t relaxing with the kids around…

But it sure was fun to watch their adorable poses.

Payson joined a bit and then got really, really upset when I wouldn’t give him a piggy back ride again. I desperately needed to do something just for me and today it was working out and I’d already spent the first half of the workout playing with him, so… I said, “No, wait until I’m done.” Which caused him to scream at the top of his lungs and stomp and throw things.

Which then got him an afternoon nap 😉

The girls and I did another 20 minutes of pilates. At the end Brooklyn suggested we take a picture in front of the TV “just to show that we were watching it.”

We took a picture and then Ember woke up.

And we took a couple more before putting the camera away.

As I was putting the pilates DVD away Brooklyn said, “I feel so good.”
