Every one has a morning routine that works for them, but mine is constantly getting rotated with new workouts, new eats and new things. My latest morning addition – Nature’s Way Alive! Premium Men’s Gummy Multivitamins. It’s a complete multivitamin, so I don’t need to take a fist full of pills. No one has time for that, nor do I want to choke down one pill after another, so I’m also loving that these Alive! Multivitamins are also gummies.
Aside from all that, I need all the help I can get with boosting my daily regimen. The boys are getting more active which means my 30+ years on them in terms of athleticism is starting to get tested more and more, especially with Cole who will probably have me beat in a year or two in terms of how fast he can do a mile run. He’s gaining strength and speed faster than I can lace up my shoes.
But I still have few things to keep me at my best as we try to out do each other: (1) I always start the day with a good breakfast – like a light bowl of yogurt with granola and banana. (2) Maintain my overall health by supplementing it with Alive! Multivitamins.* (3) Train harder because this always makes him work harder – yay, to healthy competition (and it’s parenting without preaching of which I’m a big proponent of). (4) If all else fails, make him laugh. He loses all coordination, speed and strength when he does.
All joking aside, I do love that he has that competitive streak in him, something I’m sure he inherited and has learned to hone by watching Naomi and I. And by competitive, I mean having goals, setting up a plan to reach them and executing on it. Of course when he finally does beat me, it’s going to be a mixed bag of feelings on my end—I’ll be so proud of him, then I’ll have to face that he’s growing up too fast and that my athletic edge is no competition for a young kid like him.
I mean, I guess we all have to face it sometime, right? But that doesn’t mean I’m going down without a good fight, hard training and a consistent morning routine to keep me healthy so we can run side-by-side—even if it means we will eventually have to switch places and he has to slow down his pace for me.
