Life With Wee People: Push - Pull the fat off...

My 10 year old is Autistic and my 5 year old sufferes from PDD-NOS. This means I have to get very creative in explaining things to them. They are both visual learners and have taken an interest in my obsession with going to the gym in the wee hours of the morning. Whenever the shorties see me get my Praying Mantis - Tai Chi - Wing Chun warm ups going they like to get in on the act because Kung Fu usually leads to the Noodle Wars.

We do not have a pool but we do have pool noodles. Two huge red and purple ones. We gleefully wreck the house playfully beating each other with them while learning to kick and block accurately (silly grin). Stephen has taken to staff fighting with the pool noodles while Noah usually wields them like a sword. Me? I usually get my a$$ kicked at some point because hubby likes to pretend write our names on the bottom of the oversized inflatable bowling pins and arc them through the air like guilded missles (which can be a huge distraction requiring very creative retribution - sly little grin).

This is me telling you You Are Your Own Gym (and yes, I am a Mark Lauren fan) so you should have mad fun incorporating play into your exercise routines.

Seems the shorties want me to do my Hulk Hogan poses before they get on the school bus. Why? I have a temporary Rachel Morgan tattoo Stephen the Minion Blur wants to apply to my arm except he thinks my arms "need more work. I'm not Hulk Hogan enough. A really cool tattoo requires a really cool arm."

Even though I can bench press my own body weight he thinks I'm not working out enough. We're on the floor flipping through the pictures of our copy of You Are Your Own Gym so he can select our next push - pull objective. This book is photo rich so my 5 year old doesn't have to read, he simply looks at the pictures and gets busy with his Mama in tow (LOL).

Since Stephen and I are both April babies we've decided we want one of these for our birthdays so we can get our hit - kick on. It will make a stellar addition to The Man Cave. Hubby knows it's on my things to do list (and if he EVER wants to ever see me in a bikini he should give in - hint - hint - evil grin).

I'm jogging on the causeway later. I'll show you some cool water views of Melbourne when I get back and let you guys in on just how effective doing a split military work out really is. Best part? I still eat what ever the heck I want (in moderation) and am making wonderful progress. :-)
