Tone Up Tuesday: Playground

Source

That’s right,we are toning it up on the playground. Last night I was determined to get a workout in. I decided to kick off the evening with some dance moves in the kitchen as I jammed to some tunage and made dinner. Hey, you do what you have to do to get moving. ๐Ÿ˜‰

After dinner, I had two options, spend some quality time playing with my little man before he had to go to bedย or working out. Hmmm – why not combine the two. As my father would say, all you need is a little imagination.

We walked to the playground and actually ran from slide, to swing, to teeter-totter and so on. I attempted to do chin ups on the bars (attempted being the key word).ย  And they also had this rope ladder that was so unstable that I could feel my core muscles working to keep me straight.

A two-hour “workย  out” flew by and felt like I was just playing. Simply put, it was AWESOME! Rather than just walk home, little man and I decided to skip; that got my heart racing and my little one to giggle at his mamma skipping beside him. ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

When we got home Iย did a little research and found that there are so many exercises you can do at the park. And some of these are pretty hardcore.

Oh yeah – we’re going to step this up a notch.

Now it is your turn. What did you do to get up and moving? Are you staying on track, eating better? Pipe up and BE HONEST! ๐Ÿ™‚

    This is so wonderful. Just the thought of figuring out any sort of way to get a workout in is so impressive to me. These are the scenarios when I say – hm, guess I can’t workout today! Good job!! I fell of the wagon this weekend with regard to my eating habits but I’m back on track and haven’t skipped a day of working out in 10 days! Yay! One of those days was my ‘off’ day but I still did a bit of yoga. I love love love working out!
