  • We go geocaching and most of them have at least a 1 mile hike. The last one we did was 3 miles.

  • DS is always running around and I'm chasing after him. We go to the park, swim, throw or kick a ball around, and when I do a workout video (usually dance) DS always dancing along with me.

  • Well, I have a 21 month old, so it's not hard. He gets ME to work out, lol. He's constantly going, so it's exercise just to keep up with him. :)

  • 2 things-

    My husband works nights so when he comes home at about 6:30 in the morning we go on a jog or a bike ride.

    Then we try to make exercise a part of our lives. ie) playing with our son at the park, walking to the movie theater instead of driving. Things like that.

  • I try to get DH out for a walk or a bike ride periodically, but it's like pulling teeth. I take DS for bike rides, play outside with him, and take him to the park, where we'll run around together and play with a ball or something. He always asks if he can go with me on my runs, but at 2, he's too young. I hope he still wants to go when he's old enough to join me!
