Exercising with My Daughter

Wednesday, May 9, 2012

I mentioned in my Mother's Day blog that my daughter works out with me regularly. Here is a photo of us in action when we were at the "Y" last week. As you have probably noticed from previous photos and blogs, my daughter is in a wheelchair. She was born with Spina Bifida. This means the way she can exercise is a little different. One way we can both get a great workout is to do a variety of medicine ball (non-latex, of course!) exercises together. We pass the ball back and forth from various pivots. We also toss this 10 lbs. ball back and forth from different vantage points and distances. We are both sweating nicely by the end of our work out together! Our bodies do not limit us, only our limiting thoughts and imagination! All of us can be engaged in a healthy lifestyle, we just need to support each other on the journey. Right?
