I've been in a work out rut. I have a stationary bike that I had been riding up to 2 hours per night, but it didn't seem to help me lose any extra weight. So I got frustrated and haven't been riding.
Lately, when Mr. R works, the girls and I have been having dance parties. I found this site, She Knows Entertainment, that lists 10 kid friendly dance songs. I play each song and then minimize the screen. If I don't close down the screen the girls won't dance, they'll just watch the video. Then today at the same site I found this list of 10 pop songs for kids that don't involve sex, drugs or Lady Gaga.
The girls and I have been having fun working up a sweat and dancing around the house. Sometimes we make a game where we each take turns making up a move and everyone has to follow along. Or we take turns leading the conga line around the living room and kitchen.
It's a free work out and it gets a moving around instead of sitting in front of the tv - or computer - all night.
I told Mr. Ripple's he needed to make a cd of up beat songs that the girls and I can use for our dance parties. He's the music master. It's quite an addiction to him. So he'll probably be able to make us a few cd's to rotate through.
