As I write this blog, snow is swirling in the air and it is cold outside. Like really cold. As much as my kids and I enjoy sledding and being active outdoors, it’s not possible right now, since it is recommended to limit your time outside. This also means my kids are having indoor recess at school which usually isn’t very active. Therefore, I’m thinking of different ways we can be active inside our house.
This past week we’ve been doing different workout videos after school. We’ve done a couple that they do in school. And I also introduced them to the new stretching and workout videos we have on Spend Smart. Eat Smart. We have four new videos: Chair workout, Upper Body Stretches, Cardio Pyramid Exercises, and Chair Stretches. My 11 year old son and I did the Cardio Pyramid together. He thought it was pretty fun watching mom on the video! The videos are short so they work well when you need to add a little movement to your day or when you are short on time. And you don’t need a lot of space to do them.
If, like my family, you need to find ways to be active indoors, check out the new videos and let us know what you think.
