School is out... but not my workout!
My daughters 5 & 9 have now 6-week-holiday, so we are spending a few weeks in France at my parents.
Tamzin (9) will miss out her regular swimming squad training sessions, so I am tasked to make sure she doesn’t lose her stamina & fitness levels during this trip. I asked advice from Belinda and I am able to use some of the Get Lean Program workouts using only her bodyweight. This is fantastic for me, because it means that I will have to do additional exercise with her and it will keep me motivated to not fall out of my own Get Lean training program!
For me, the Get Lean Program is now part of my lifestyle, so I ordered a few pieces of inexpensive equipment to be able to continue my resistance workout here like I usually do at home. For the rest, I just need to find creative way of using free alternative resources, like the bench of the picnic table, a window frame, a flower pot or else!
At the end, even the 5-year-old joined in with our daily workout routines, here are a few photos my mum took while she was watching us from the comfort of her lounge chair:
Never give up! I am struggling a bit with continuing my nutritious & balanced diet in France, but that’s all right: it’s not about being perfect! In the past, this would have meant giving up everything... not anymore!
So, if you have kids too... why don’t you follow us: there is nothing more inspiring than a family getting fit together! I now have my girls motivated... the next person to motivate is my husband: that will take much longer, but we will get there eventually!!
