Exercising is hard for a lot of people for a lot of reasons, but there is no reason why somebodies negative experience can't be turned into a positive one. Tweaking a certain exercise to make it accessible and achievable can have all the difference. At Mama's Army we don't slog away at the same old thing. We m
All this recent rain had turned our walk onto somewhat of an obstacle course this morning! We could have grumbled and moaned, but instead we all got muddy and messy and had a laugh. Dos touching to see the whole group adapt to the circumstances, helping each other through the slippery parts and slowing down to accommodate the little legs that joined us this morning.
