At first, negative thoughts ran through my head. What will the other moms think? Do I look foolish? Then I forced myself to get out of my own head and realized the honest truth. I'm setting an example for my 2-year-old daughter. I had the choice to skip my workout or use this as a teaching moment. Fitness doesn't only happen in a gym. Health is a lifestyle. Most importantly, kids learn by watching.
So, I began my first workout in the park. By the end of it, my daughter was doing her version of lunges and pull-ups right beside me. Here's the perfect workout for your next trip to the park.
Repeat this circuit 3 times.
You will most likely be interrupted by your child several times during your workout. This is OK. There's nothing wrong with catching your breath while you push your little one on the swings or watch them go down the big slide. Let your kids see you having fun while working out.
