Summer Block Party - Healthy Tip of the Day!

Congratulations to KY2Here winner of the giveaway! 


Tip: Make Exercise fun for the entire family.
I know many moms especially have a hard time fitting exercise into their schedules, I believe in making exercise a family affair. If you have young children, take them with you on a walk around the block. My son actually climbed a mountain with me before he turned 3! We took it slow but he had a great time (especially on the way down when his father carried him the entire time). When I want to run, I put my son in the jogging stroller and he enjoys the ride, cheering for me the entire time. With older children play fitness video games with them, you will all benefit from the exercise. Ride bikes with your children. These are all fun ways to exercise as a family!

We love to go biking together.

We go walking, usually at the Veteran's Memorial Park downtown. It's been really too hot to walk much lately, but I hope we'll be able to get back to it soon.

Linda Kish said...

We take our houseful of dogs out for long walks .

Walking works well for us. Also Wii Fit and we might try Wii Dance.

We walk, I figure if I can get them used to walking now, hopefully it's a habit they will continue. We especially love to go on nature hike/walks and we're lucky enough to live near lots of green trails.

Our town likes to hide the fact of what a pig it is, grabbing any unincorporated land it can get its hands on, whether or not the owners WANT to be annexed or not. So it tries to pretend that it cares about its people by protecting us against such horrors as.... Blockbuster's blue awnings, and Ace Hardware's bags of mulch that you can see when you drive by - gasp!!! But the one useful thing they DO do is building "greenways". They pave paths through the woods in areas that they can't build on because they're in the flood plain. We have one behind our house, so we go for family walks there, and it's not totally unbearably hot because there are trees all around to shade us from the sun.

It's summer so nothing beats swimming. It's a good thing our town's man-made pond has ten minute breaks every hour or we might never get out of the water!

I never learned how to drive, so I have to walk everywhere. Which means that my three kids also have to walk everywhere (unless they want to ride in the stroller). I don't plan on changing, so they will all be walking until they are old enough to drive, or they can wait for their dad to get home from work.

We live within walking distance of a drug store, a grocery store, a dollar store, etc. So whenever we need something small that is easy to carry, we walk or bike to the store instead of driving.

In the summer we go swimming, and we also go hiking in our local parks. In the winter we play wii and when there is snow we go sledding.

Each weeknight (if it's not raining and we're not working late) we go for a 3 mile walk at a park near our house. It's very relaxing and we try to do it at least 4 times a week. colorfulcarla@gmail.com
