I manage a country homestead and the lives of my 4 babies ages 10,8,5 and 3. I LOVE TO RUN and NEED to keep healthy and fit for my SANITY!! Seriously....All problems are solved when I am running.

Making MY health a priority allows me to be the mother and wife that I need to be for them.

Setting the Example

I was posting this picture of my fabulous husband on my other blog when I thought of something relevant to share on this FIT mom blog.

Want healthy children? Want them not to be lazy and sit in front of the t.v or computer all day??


They are watching you and taking cues from you.

Think you are too old??

BAH!!!! That is nonsense. The less you move the less you will be able to move. The more you move the better you will feel.

Too tired?? Do yourself a favor and pry your butt off the couch and go for a 10 minute walk. You may surprise yourself and have MORE energy and sleep much better!!

Really...I'm not joking... Try it.

You may be pleasantly surprised at the results. Unless you WANT to be old and lazy and have overweight and lazy children too ;)

Just a thought.

Oh yes! So true. I'm still thankful to my parents for setting a good example. And we've tried to set one for our guys too.
