Mommy Workout Series: Mickey Mouse Clubhouse

Hey guys!

Like most moms of active toddlers I've got a very little free time. I count myself lucky if I can pee alone these days, let alone squeeze in a workout. As a result, I've had to get a little creative in the ways I get my daily burn. After a particularly rough day with Audrey, I was laying in bed trying to honestly think of a point in my day where she was even remotely occupied enough that I could workout AND not in need of my help and it hit me: During her morning preschool shows!

We don't watch a lot of tv around here, but every morning I usually turn on one of the typical toddler shows (like Sesame Street or Sophia the First) and she likes to watch, dance to the songs, and bring her toys to show her tv friends. It's not like I can leave her long, but generally she is occupied enough that I can do my own thing nearby, so that's where I got the idea to create workouts specifically for that golden hour of not-so-free-but-slightly-less-hectic time.

I present to you, The Life's a Wheeze Mommy Workout Series! I will be featuring a new kids show regularly (hopefully once a week) with a workout to go with. I'd love to hear what suggestions you have for shows and any feedback on the workouts (too hard/easy) but I tried this one out and it kicked my booty! I will try to keep these equipment free so that there's even less excuse to miss a workout. I have a few others already started, but the first in the Series is the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Workout! We love Mickey Mouse around here and Audrey does too.  Enjoy!
