Our First Lady and a few of our fave celebrity athletes are gracing a brand new special edition of Sports Illustrated KIDS.  Check out their cute Let’s Move cover inside,

 

After launching the "Active School" portion of her Let’s Move campaign this past February, First Lady Michelle Obama brought in 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick, Tennis Champ Serena Williams and Olympians Gabby Douglas & Allyson Felix as great examples for the kids.  And they’re all rocking the cover of a special edition of Sports Illustrated Kids with school kids.  

FLOTUS says in the issue:

There are a lot of kids who shy away from activity because they think, "Well, I’m not coordinated." But the truth is that movement is pumping your arms, it’s dancing, it’s touching your toes, it’s identifying your physical strengths and not comparing yourself to your classmate, because we are all different. So we want to make activity fun again for kids in schools. Let’s Move! Active Schools is an initiative to find champions
throughout schools.

Nice!

 

And this week, the Obamas traveled to Africa for their first official trip to South Africa, Senegal & more.  So First Lady Michelle marked the historical occasion by kicking off her brand new Instagram account with pics and video straight from the trip. 

She’s giving the world an inside look into what the Obama family is experiencing, and the fabulousness the different countries are exuding to welcome the First Fam:

Her very first pic from the six-day, three-country tour was a cell phone shot of her smiling with a group of young women from the Martin Luther King all-girls middle school in Dakar, Senegal.  Her daughter Malia & niece Lesley are also in the pic.

She said, "My first instagram! So inspired and so impressed by these extraordinary young women. -mo #FLOTUSinAfrica"

The fab First Lady traveled to different schools and places to meet the people of Senegal:

FLOTUS Michelle Obama Talks Fitness And Shopping At Target + 10-Year-Old “Work Out Kid” Stealing Shine From Justin Bieber?

The FLOTUS Michelle Obama was featured on the "TODAY" show this morning speaking to Al Roker about her Let’s Move campaign and her "secret" shopping trips to Target and Petco.  Get the deets inside and find out about the 10-year-old boy and his 8-pack that rivals Trey Songz…and the uproar he’s causing (good and bad)….

 

First Lady Michelle Obama has had a very busy week. Yesterday, she led hundreds of local school children in doing one minute of jumping jacks on the South Lawn in hopes of breaking a world record for most people doing jumping jacks in a 24-hour period.

The verdict is still out on whether that happened or not, but Mrs. Obama did take time to talk to Al Roker about her Let’s Move campaign and also to reveal that she makes secret shopping trips to local stores in the DC area. Yeah, we noticed.

 

Watch the FLOTUS’ interview with Al Roker here:

And in other health news for the kiddies:

With over 4,500 workout DVDs sold or donated, 10-year-old CJ Senter is taking the workout world by store and giving dudes like Usher and Trey Songz a run for their money in the body department. 

First……get a load of his 8-pack!

Although CJ isn’t officially a part of the FLOTUS’s Let’s Move campaign, he’s started his own movement with kids around the country and the word on the streets is that he’s the Justin Beiber of fitness.  He has fans and a huge following!

And he’s serious about weight-loss goals saying,

‘You can go outside and have fun, but some kids, they’ll just go outside for like 10 minutes and come back in. But if you just do a workout, your body will sweat more.

‘Sweating, it lets, you know, you’re losing weight. You’re really working.’

 

But not everyone is co-signing this.  Some parents are up in arms saying this is a bad example to teach kids to be such workout fanatics.  And some doctors say it’s unhealthy for a kid this young to be doing such strenuous activity.  Your thoughts?
