I am an educated, experienced and certified personal trainer. Some days I act like it. Other days...not so much.
So why am I a lazy personal trainer?
I LOVE WORKING OUT. I LOVE DONUTS. I LOVE RUNNING 5Ks. I LOVE LAZY TV NIGHTS WITH JFBs (SEE MY LINGO LIST).
CAN I POSSIBLY BE A HAPPY, HEALTHY PERSON WITH SUCH CONFLICTING PASSIONS?
I'm trying! Follow my quest to OVERCOME LAZY!

Random Act of Fitness #22: Keeping pace with my 5-year-old
This girl amazes me.
Because of my 5-year-old daughter’s seemingly limitless energy, trying to keep up with her on any given day provides many opportunities for an RAF… if I decide to join her!
Well, this week on one of our walks to school, I did, indeed, keep pace with her!Once we exit the gate of our neighborhood, she usually jets off down the sidewalk and impatiently waits for me to catch up so she can hop her way across the lines of the cross walks and then resume her little race.
I usually walk briskly to so she stays in sight and isn’t kept waiting too long, but the other day, I matched her running pace and hopped right along with her across the streets and got my heart pumping a little more than usual.
See you can even do interval training on the walk to school!
