We all make promises to ourselves to be better, healthier, stronger etc. It’s difficult to say the least. Today I did some sit-ups with Leonardo. I lay him on my lap and sat up until I kissed him on the cheek. Between low stamina and general disinterest in exercise, I made it to 15 while counting. Though, in my defense I was doing it for about 5 minutes before counting just for fun. I also do curls using him as a barbell. Sometimes, he seems to like it. Sometimes, he seems confused. Sometimes, it puts him to sleep.
We really want him to be more fit than we are, so perhaps now is the time to help him appreciate the active lifestyle.
