Hell must have frozen over because tonight the WHOLE family went to the YMCA and exercised. Harrison and Arlie went to the "teen room" where they played a board game and then to the Adventure Zone for some running and climbing. Hayley, Hannah, Jeff and I went to the cardio room. Jeff did the elliptical while Hayley, Hannah and I tried the stairmasters, stationary bikes, treadmills and ellipticals. I tried to keep it reasonable so they wouldn't get burnt out on the first day - so five minutes on everything, ten on the treadmill. But Hayley stayed on the elliptical 14 minutes (I did five and was thankful when it was over!). All in all, we worked out about 30 minutes, which was not bad for our first attempt at "group exercise". I'm pretty sure the kids will sleep well tonight after breaking a sweat (not a daily occurrence around here!).

Congrats you guys! That is so awesome! I have been using my elliptical much less frequently lately! Ugh.
