April Burpee Challenge

I'll be the first to tell you: I hate burpees.  My little ladies have been making it a little more fun.  They have been joining me for my Burpee Challenge this week.  Today is April 5th, so 5 burpees were on deck.  Let me tell you, peeps: 5 was hard.  Ellie took video of my burpees--that I am not sharing only because I took video of Ellie and Aleena doing their burpees that is way cuter than my video.  Check out Aleena's "ta-da" at the end.  :)

I think the PJs make it even cuter.

I love that my little ladies like to do my exercises with me.  It makes me feel like I'm setting a good example even though I let them have a pouch of zero-nutritional-value-rot-your-teeth-out fruit snacks most afternoons.  (In my defense, I buy the fruit snacks with fruit juice as the first ingredient; not high fructose corn syrup.  Just don't ask me what the second ingredient is.)

What fun, healthy activities do you do with your kiddos?  Do they enjoy exercising with you? 


  1. So awesome! Monkey see, monkey do. Great job teaching kidlets fitness.! Keep it up.

  2. That video is ADORABLE! I love that they are taking on the burpee challenge with you (us). My girls like to remind me how "easy" burpees are when I do them and demonstrate it for me. It's nothing even remotely close to a burpee, but if it makes them feel better than so be it.

    Keep up the great job! :-)
