Healthy Living

I have decided to get serious this year and make some changes in how our family eats and gets active, it is my goal for us parents to lose quite a bit of weight and for us all to be healthier.

After skating this past weekend and walking around downtown I realized just how easy it is to enjoy quality time (which includes physical activity and not just the Wii) with the family with very little effort.

The only problem was that each of these outings was followed by a lunch/dinner out which was full of fat and lots of other junk! Don't get me wrong the food was awesome!, but I don't think it is smart to get active skating and then follow it up with a Bonzai Burger at Red Robin.

So I am going to make a huge effort this year to find fun active outings and a fun way to get us all eating healthier, it may drive you crazy but I might start using this blog to help keep me accountable.

If you have any suggestions on how to incorporate more veggies onto picky eaters I would be very grateful, btw the pickiest of the bunch is the DAD!!!

Stick them into the food processor and mix them in so they don't know the veggies are in the food. :)

That sounds great! Good luck to you, keep with it! Get that intrinsic motivation you need to make it become daily routine and it will be eventually be easy!
