Well we’ll just see about that !!! I definitely need some help so I enlist my daughter to aid her mother in this endeavor. Giovanna my older cherub and I decided to start with channel 1067, Exercise on Demand on a Tuesday evening.  Looking at the menu our first question was “what do we want to do?” Giovanna immediately takes the TV  remote control and starts scrolling through the categories BELLY DANCING!! Wholly Cow….. what in the world is she thinking???? I’m gonna feel stupid, can I keep up??  I’m 48 Years Young!! Can I really do this?? Silly question, of course I can! It’s just exercise.

Thank God we decided to go with something less intimidating. We started on Buns and Thighs! This was only a 12 minute workout, and so we started the workout,  IT WAS AWESOME!! I was really doing great. I was thinking this may work  for me! Unfortunately, not so for Gi,  she was not so happy, after 4 minutes of loud work-out sounds, I hear a sigh of relief next to me, quickly followed by this statement “WHAT!!!! THAT WAS ONLY THE  WARM-UP!?”  OMG, this work out was not going the way she wanted it to , she could not keep up, she felt stupid, could not keep count and was utterly uncoordinated, about 9 minutes into the workout she reached for the remote, stopped the workout and went back to the menu. Okay,  I could definitely understand what she was feeling, not wanting to discourage our Mother Daughter Time I said Nothing! This time we decided to start with a beginner workout, it was simple calisthenics, we would be able to follow no problem. We started AGAIN,  It was great! I didn’t say much to her, in fear that I may lose my new workout partner, it was great being together and sharing time doing something healthy for ourselves!

We continued to do another workout ” Abs of steel”. This workout was a 12 minute work out we chose together, it looked easy and fast paced, Okaayy!!!!! We actually are spending time together!! Working out !!!!. Not one rude comment or roll of the eyes, my fifteen year old daughter was actually laughing with me! This was a day that will live in infamy!!!!  (Rosaria, our younger honey bunny decided not to join us, but I have hope she will in the future, and in retrospect it was probably best that she didn’t, I think she had beans for supper you know what they say……….beans beans the musical fruit!)

If I were to choose an exercise, it would be walking !!  I’ve tried to get my husband to go with me but…… he thinks walking will add only minutes to your life, he says the only benefit would be that it would enable you at 85 years old to spend an additional 5 months in a nursing home at $5000 per month. LOL. The only positive reason for long walks he says is ” when they are taken by people who annoy me.”  Trying my hand at humor,  I told him a story about Mother Theresa.   I said ” You know my mother started walking five miles a day when she was 60. Now she’s 97 years old and we don’t know where the heck she is.” (Just Kidding) !!

Yes, summer is right around the corner soooo… I should stick with this program, sharing time with my two girlies is the best benefit!!  I will leave you with a few thoughts to ponder:

Exercise is done against one’s wishes and maintained only because the alternative is worse”

“Even in a country like the USA where fitness has become an obsession, most people exercising do not seem to think it illogical to drive automobiles to gyms while doing their best to avoid walking”

Thoughts to ponder…………….
