I Challenge You...Go Figure

Go Figure @ Multi-Tasking Moms

Three weeks ago I blogged about my apple cider concoction, I started taking it the following Thursday (I had to order it online.) I've been taking it 1-3 times a day, almost everyday since it arrived. Plus, I'm walking 15-20 minutes three times a week. I haven't been eating as healthy as I'd like to, but I have been downsizing and trying to avoid the BAD fat.

After my semi-healthier life I decided to see how fit...or unfit I really was. I have to admit I was a little over confident in myself, so I challenged my children and nephews (ages 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 4, 4) to a race. My goal wasn't to win the race, it was to see if I could keep up with the youngsters. WHAT was I THINKING??? I ate their DUST! They whooped me....Go Figure;)

So, now I'm challenging YOU! I would like you to challenge your child/children to a race...not to win, but to:

A) Have FUN with your child/children and B) See if you can honestly keep up, and that includes all you mommies with 1 and 2 year olds. I didn't race my 2yo, but he's hard to keep up with.


I believe from this challenge you will benefit from 2 things, a little exercise and most importantly, time with your child/children! The memories will last a LIFETIME :)

my son is a runner so there's no way i'd be able to keep up with him. i have lost some weight lately and i have noticed i am in better shape. when i photographing a cross country race, i have to get to different spots quickly. so i jog and for the most part, i can do it where as a year or two ago - no way.

so yay. and your idea to run with the younger ones is a great one.

You rock! What fun. I think I can beat my K - she is a tippy toe walker (we are working on that), so running is tough... :) BUT, I think T will have me beat. Maybe I'll challenge my crawler.

Great idea! Thanks for the book suggestion--I ordered it from Amazon today. I know I can use it, and certainly it will bless my children's lives as well.

Uuh? Just how do you think my kids will feel when they have to pick me up off the ground and drag me back home? I can't keep up with them WALKING!
So, okay, no racing, but I will go do something fun with them. (They didn't think picking tomatoes this morning was fun-- go figure.)
