Working Out Without Knowing It

While we were in New Hampshire last month, there was a great hill we had to walk up to use the neighbor’s pool. The kids ran up like it was nothing, and it reminded me how small people exercise without even realizing it. I had to wonder when that sort of ‘natural’ working out stops in our lives and how we can get it back. It seems like we have to carve time into our schedules to move our bodies, and that saddens me. I’ve been trying to take a cue from my kiddos and be active whenever I can (in the pool, outside while they’re playing, in the house cleaning or whatever), and I’ve been a bit more successful. There’s room for improvement, of course, but I’m trying to restructure my life a bit so it’s more “normal.”
