The problem is, while I like to pin to this board and even glance back at the various exercises from time to time, I rarely use them. Sure, when I first created the board I did (a little), but as with most of my fitness endeavors, that didn't last long. As I've been told, they aren't going to work via osmosis.
I jokingly turned to my son and said, "I really need to start doing some of these. Walking just isn't cutting it."
"How about no phone until you've done 30 minutes of exercise," he suggested.
WHAT? Who asked this kid, anyway? "No - next suggestion please."
He walked over to my monitor and pointed to this pin.
We both started laughing.
"Okay, okay," I said. "Go ahead and pick one out for me and that's the one I'll do today. Just make sure it is a routine that will work my arms, chest, stomach, lower abs, hips, butt, and/or thighs. Don't worry about my feet, they're good." He giggled.
While I went in the other room to make his breakfast, he scrolled through all my fitness pins. (Probably more than necessary, but considering the number of photos of amazingly fit, scantily clad women, I can't blame him.) Bet you want to check that board out now, huh?
He finally called to me, "Found one, mom!"
My jaw dropped when I saw the one he chose (see Exhibit B). Oh geez, not THAT one. It was a workout I've actually done in the past, with zero enjoyment I may add. I tried to convince him to pick another one, but he once again referred to Exhibit A above. Gggrrrrrr.
"I got you there? Huh, mom?"
"FINE! I'll do it," I conceded.
And complete it, I did. (Confession - minus the burpees, maybe next time. I wanted to be able to get out of bed the next day.)
But tomorrow, I'm picking my routine - provided I can even walk. At the very least I will be certain to pin more workouts! You know, for the next time my son calls me out on my non-existent fitness routine.
