The Best Workout in the World

Who needs Yoga Booty Ballet or Turbo Jam?

Here's the best workout in the world.

Take a lightweight umbrella stroller and load it with an child who is, in all honesty, too big for it. Attach a 5 year old who doesn't like mornings and is complaining about her snow boots. Now run for a half mile on a slight incline while pushing the stroller through 2 inches of snowy slush. Add pelting sleet. About two blocks in, have the 5 year old begin to cry and pull back on the stroller, for a little extra resistance.

It works every every muscle in your body, including the patience muscle (which for me is located in my jaw somewhere).

Watch for the infomercial. I'm going to package this with the Eat Your Children's Leftover Mac and Cheese for Lunch diet and make a million.

My favorite work out is getting everyone in their winter gear and in the car. There is nothing like a good sweat before heading out into the frigid temperatures.

That was hilarious (for me reading, not for you pushing)!! Thanks for that little afternoon laugh as trees continue to fall in our yard - love the winter snow and ice.

Brilliant.

Of course, you'll have to start a website and sell children because some people might not have the right kind. Ooh...and maybe you could get a spot on QVC...

You deserve some Valentines Day chocolate, after so much excercise it won't even count. Thanks for the laugh, I could picture it perfectly.

I agree with Laurie. Loading a 40lb two year old in and out of a waist high car seat usually does the trick.
