Fitting In A Workout During The Holidays

I am writing this while waiting at the airport for our flight back from Florida, where my husband (Jacques) and went for four days. Once there, we are in a little exercise. James does not like the exercise I am, but it does to run and is a wonderful support for me and my physical condition "habits." So while we were out, I met three times (twice with James along Beach Road Jupiter, with magnificent sea views, and once by myself 8 miles hot, humid and flat). I also went to a class of Kettlebell / TRX learned from a friend, Josephine Bunn. Technically, James and I did together, because he left me, went to Dunkin Donuts, and brought me coffee and a donut after school (as I said, it is very favorable). Of course, without our children with us, it was fun and easy to install in a little practice during the holidays. However, it is not our type of vacation (it was the first time they have fled for more than one night in 22 years).

Remaining 99% of the time we go out of our children are with us. Yet they still manage to squeeze fitness for most of the time. So summer is fast approaching, and start a family holiday, their five ways to measure your workout out of the ... or not!

Advantages Usually works on children 14 and under. .. less . generally does not work on children 15 years and older.

3. Jobs in the exercise of outdoor activities already planned .. Floating in the water in the pool is my favorite. As the children play around me in the water, a fierce drive is just under the surface ... and even hardly notice I'm exercising! With older children, sometimes we have to be creative, as I had to do last August, when the family went to Maine. My oldest son is a college swimmer and needed some swimming in. So while swimming in the lake, rowed with him in a kayak. It was a journey far superior and it was fun to share with him. Other ... Promotes family stability. Less ... You must be very spontaneous and flexible, and sometimes does not work as expected.

4. Take a walk at night. Tell your family every night for your vacation, you will walk for 2-3 miles. If you want to participate and they are old enough to go, let them.

It's your vacation and you choose not to train!
