Apparently Child’s Pose = Mommy’s Giving Horsie Rides!!!

It’s been awhile since I used my wii fit plus. According to the little calendar on the screen, today was the first wii workout all month. Oops! But, I’m back on the horse. 

I could really see the difference in my feedback and scores on the poses today in comparison to the other times I’ve used it. That’s one of the things I love best about the Wii — the instant feedback and the ability to compare your performance today with past workouts. The trainer pointed out that my right side isn’t as flexible as my left. True. My right hamstring has been aching at me and my right knee too. Reminders that I need to improve my flexibility and strength on both sides of my body.

When I felt the need for a little extra stretch after one of the poses, I moved into child’s pose (one not offered on the wii, but one I always like to use.) Apparently, to my 3 and 5 year old daughters that was just an invitation to climb on my back and yell “Yeehawwwww!!!!”  Savannah, my 3 year old loves to do yoga and strength side-by-side with me. She held my hand during jackknives (while she wrapped herself up in the yoga mat and said, “Look! I’m a burrito!”) I fully agreed with her on half-moon today, “Ow! Ow! Ow! Hurts my back, Mommy!” “Mine too!” I said. 

Looks like she and I have our work cut out for us.
