Fishing for Something To Do?

With spring in the air it’s time for families to get outdoors, get active, and play together! Growing up, my brother and I would always see one or both of my parents working out.  Whether it was going for a run, a long walk, the gym, or in the winter, heading to the swimming pool at the local YMCA, my parents made fitness a priority in their lives.        

My mom has always been thin, but she never thought that she didn’t have to work out.  Actually, she always attributed her slender size to her long walks. Even when she was diagnosed with arthritis in her hands and feet about 20 years ago, she didn’t let her diagnosis cause her to stop working out. Instead, she adapted her workouts accordingly.  Instead of running, she walked, or swam, or did non-impact aerobics.  And my dad, he  also has been very active.  Between running, taekwondo, and soccer, he has always maintained an active and healthy lifestyle. 

Watching both of my parents model active living has molded me into an active adult.  I know that  getting off the couch or off the computer is an important part of living a well-balanced lifestyle.  And now I’m modeling the same for my children.

  2. for me It’s amazing how in teaching our kids we actually are reminded of some important lessons ourselves. Talking to my 4-year old about Earth Day has really had me thinking about the way I do things too!!!
