"So that's how old people exercise!" stated one of my youngest grandsons, as he watched me dancing like the child of the 60's and 70's baby boomer that I am to one of our favorite kid singing groups, the Go Fish guys. First we had been listening to the 10 commandments song for the kids, the Ten Commandments Boogie. Then we followed it up with a couple of other fun songs, including Kicking It Old School from their album by the same name.
Laughing my head off, I just kept be-bopping away, enjoying the fun beat in the music, the happy smiles on their faces, and the fun and physical and, yes, senior citizen activities of dancing with my grandkids.
I may not have looked all that coordinated, but it was great fun and quite healthy – physically and spiritually. Want to share in the exercise with us? You can find albums by The Go Fish Guys, including Kickin' It, at Amazon – or just click this latest of my cute Smilebox eCards creations below – and enjoy it (with or withOUT cute grandkids. 🙂 )
Ah ha – now don't you feel 10 pounds lighter with a smile on your face. 😉 I gotta say, it's one of my favorite ways of how people over 50 can raise their metabolism. What's yours?
P.S. While this praise song album is a bit on the jazzy rap side, making it excellent for exercise, it also has a very serious message – that we need to remember the important basics – from the sweet old Christian hymn songs this album contains (albeit with an updated beat for the young kids and grandkids) to the most important basic – GOD'S WORD! 🙂 And oh, the delight when one of my grandchildren listened to "This is My Father's World" and said, "Oh, yay, I really like that song." 🙂
