Setting A Good Example - Early

One of the best ways my husband and I are able to demonstrate to our boys the importance of exercising and eating healthy everyday - is through our own example. We all live busy lives and finding time to be active can be challenging. But if you do it together then your children will also learn early in life how important it is to maintain a healthy life - for the rest of their life.

Here, we finished the Junior Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) walkathon around the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. The boys complained most of the time during the 3 mile walk but we encouraged them to continue and let them know this cause meant a lot to our family because the disease is prevalent in my husband's family. Once we completed the walk, it gave the boys a great since of accomplishment!

Today, we took the boys out along a local bike path while we walked along. It was a similar 3-4 mile ride/walk so we all got our necessary movement for the day. When you exercise together as a family, the benefits go far more than physical.
