I try to get my exercise in before the kids wake up, but it's hard to
do sometimes when I've been up late the night before and/or my kids
pop up extra early. So sometimes I'm still grinding through push-ups
and sit-ups while they're already up and plopped in front of the TV.
Strangely, both offer me useful enhancements to my workout routine.
Jada is delighted to see me exercise; she'll jump on my back when I'm
doing push-ups, and ride on my legs when I'm doing sit-ups. Aaron, on
the other hand, gets quite upset when I get down on the ground; he'll
push against me when I'm doing push-ups and sit-ups. Of course, when
they're both up, and both offering resistance in their own separate
ways, the rest of my workout becomes futile.
