Silent Saturday: How desert dwellers go sledding!

Saturday, March 16th, 2013

Sometimes people think it’s too hard to fit in exercise while your kids are little. Our solution? Let the kids join in on the fun! Check out hubby pushing his homemade sled with our 3 boys on it as weights. The kids get to go for a fun ride, while daddy gets a workout. It’s a win, win!


Don’t have a sled? No worries! Now that the weather is warming up and Spring is on its way, there are lots of fun, easy outdoor exercises you can do that require no equipement at all. Simply taking a walk with your family is a great way to get started exercising together. Head to the park and do some sprints, lunges, squats, burpees, push-ups, planks, jumping jacks, etc. Bring a soccer ball to kick around with the kids. Play tag. Make up an obstacle course. Skip around the park. Seriously, just let go of any inhibitions and SKIP! You cannot help but SMILE wide while skipping. 🙂

Have fun this weekend everybody! And get a couple skips in if you can. 😉
