Just an update and a new plan

Saturday, August 21, 2010

I just want to apoligize to all of my wonderful sparkfriends for being MIA. I am in the middle of my busy season and am working twelve hour days and weekends so I just crash at night and havent been able to log on much. I hope you are all perservering and working hard.

I have been semi watching what i eat but i havent been able to exercise at much. Although i havent gained any weight back, i can clearly see that i am not as toned up. The benefit is that it shows me what exercise does for you other than the scale and i have a plan to get back into it.

My two older kids had their physicals for school and the doctor talked to us about putting them in a program/study. They are both overweight. They are not obese but my husband has high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes. etc. so they want to be pro active. They are going to their first meeting today, i think its with a nutritionist who talks to them about choices, exercises etc. I think its sort of like a weight watchers for kids.

The second part of that is I decided to spend the money and sign them both up for my gym. I feel that it will benefit all of us. I wil have exercise buddies and show them a healthy lifestyle (my husband is very inactive). I feel that at their age if they just cut out junk and exercise four times a week, they are goign to get taller and the weight will come off.

I will try to be on here more, i really miss all of you guys, thanks!!!

    SP has a ton of exercise videos you can do in 5-10 minutes. It is amazing how differently you can feel with just that little bit of time devoted to your health each day. You have the opportunity to have an amazing effect on your children's health for the rest of their lives. I bet you can work with them and find a lot of healthy replacements for whatever junk food they are eating now. If it isn't in the house and something they like that is healthy is, they'll eat the healthy stuff. You can do this!

    Glad to see you back...

    Get here when you can. Exercise is SO important, for the kids also. You are starting them out right. No diets for them, just healthy choices. emoticon

    Keep up the fight. Remember, adapt and overcome. You must adapt to obstacles and overcome them. I can see you are thinking about the obstacles and exploring ways to overcome them. You will ultimately be successful.

    Good Luck
