MizFit on TV talkin’ about PLAYouts.

Featured, MizFit Muzings, Parenthood

While I wasn’t too into the whole Austin’s Fittest Moms photo-shoot idea—-I am really appreciating the opportunity to share with other moms how important it is to GET OUT AND PLAY with our children.

Sure normal person traditional exercise is has its place, Ive just found the afternoons I spend with the Tornado being SILLYactive are some of our best times together.

(If youre checking in via a reader there is a newsclip/video below)

    LOVE the video.
    The Tornado and her jumping jacks is priceless.

  2. Nancy says:

    SO CUTE and really true when you say that you did not want fitness to be something which took you away from your daughter.

    You are so wise.

  3. Helen says:

    I hope I am like you when I am a mother, Carla.

  4. Joanna Sutter says:

    Love, love, love.

    Love, love, LOVE!

    Awesome - love it!

    Yay!! Love the video :) I think the most wonderful benefit of my daily exercise plan, is that my girls see it and want to join me!! My oldest may be a runner and I never knew it. She begged and begged for me to take her running the other day, so I did, along with a friend’s son and my other daughter. We set out at a 10 minute/mile pace (which I’m happy with!) which the littler ones could keep up with and my 9 year olds says, “I thought we were going to go faster than this”. Hmmmm. Maybe I need to ride my bike along side her ;)

    That’s awesome! And teaching the tornado such good habits!

  11. Loretta says:

    How fun to see both of you in the clip, doing it together. It looked like the Tornado was enjoying herself, too. Wow, what good habits AND good memories this is building for her. :-)


  12. Karen says:

    I love it! My confession - I was not an exerciser yet when my boys were young. Sigh.

    I know how passionate you are about this- very cool that you got the opportunity to share it with other mamas out there!

  16. Tracey @ I'm Not Superhuman says:

    So cute. I love the little pink track suit!

  17. Meredith says:

    Very cute Miz.

    And this spoke to me. My marathon training takes me away from the twins. They SIT while I exercise.

    Food for thought for sure.

  18. angela says:

    Excellent! I love seeing her work out with you, she does such a good job!

  19. Jody - Fit at 52 says:

    Oh the good things you are teaching her. She is going to really thank you when she grows up.

  27. Yum Yucky says:

    Love your point about fitness not taking you away from her. You’re such a great momma and role model to the Tornado.

  28. Leah @bookieboo says:

    That was so cool! I loved seeing your daughter do the workout. I need to start doing that with my kids. I’m so excited that we are buying a big boxing bag for Xmas. I can’t wait to teach them on that. I wonder if I’ll be raising some Irish scappers. LOL

  29. Jeannabeana says:

    Awesome! My daughter, “the hurricane” as my nephew and I refer to her as, loves to workout with her mom as well. She loves it!

  30. juliejulie says:

    Do they make that pink track suit in grown up mom sizes? Please?

  31. Sharon Johnson says:

    Yesssss! Busy moms can be healthy and fit! That’s what I’m discovering as I navigate this same challenge. Fitness is a family event for us and I love discovering ways to make our workouts…er…”playouts” fun and effective for all of us, despite our ages ranging from 2 to 37. Keep up the great work!

  32. Katdoesdiets says:

    That clip gave me the sniffles…so cool.

  33. Florrie Trilli says:

    nice :)

  34. Shelley B says:

    Very deserving! And dang, Emma has great form with her crunches! :)

  35. esmemerrie says:

    I was hanging out with some of my friends kids the other night and I decided I can’t wait to have toddlers so I can get out and run around and go crazy with them!! There’s a lot of sprinting involved! Tabata’s got nothing on having kids!
