So We Don't Get Fat

Gabe has started working out and the kids are loving it because they like to join in. And they claim to be doing it "so they don't get fat." Ooook... Whatever gets them to exercise I guess. They get up early with him every morning and do burpees, pullups, pushups, whatever daddy's doing. And would you believe that they actually enjoy, like, and have fun with it?! Yeah, I don't like to exercise and since I'm pregnant, I get to stay in bed and enjoy an extra 5-10 minutes of sleep. Works for me. :)

After dinner one night, they wanted to work out again so I caught it on camera this time.

Here they are doing burpees. They have so much energy!

And miss Alena, the beast, can do some awesome pullups. These pictures were taken AFTER the burpees and AFTER doing a ton of other pullups. (please excuse the blurriness)

And then Gabe joined in and did some burpees with them. Love these shots!


  1. O.M.G best post ever!! Look at those burpees! This is too cute!

  2. So cute that the kids want to do the exercise that their dad is doing. Shows how much they look up to and admire him. I would definitely want to exercise more if I had little muchkins doing it with me, that's for sure! Just found your blog and have loved getting to know you better... I'm excited to follow along!

  6. Tell me, do they sleep as well as I imagine they would after workouts like that? Cause I sure know I would sleep soundly.

    1. I wish! Sadly, I don't think they sleep any different.
