Staying fit is something that is not constantly on my mind. It’s hard to find time in the day. Especially with a business, a 3 1/2 year old and another one on the way. We recently had the opportunity to attend an event with the JCC Rosen campus in South Orlando.The event called JFit Health Fair and Green Market was a great reminder that staying fit doesn’t have to mean sacrificing 2 hours every morning to a hard core regiment. There are ways to incorporate smart and healthy habits in our lifestyle no matter how busy we are. This is especially true when you have kids. Kids are always up for a walk around the neighborhood or a bike ride if it involves fun or quality time with Mom and Dad.
Healthy food doesn’t have to be bland a unpleasant. At our house we serve carrots as a snack with some hummus. Little changes and decisions that over time add up to a healthier more rewarding life. Of course I need to practice what I preach as well and the pre-school setting was a reminder that I need to live healthy lifestyle not only for myself but for my kids too. Here’s a great video from the CDC about teaching and engaging kids about food and healthy lifestyles at an early age. Check it out.
We want to send a huge thank you to Lorri Levine, Amber Tucker and all the JCC staff & Volunteers for providing the wonderful experience and opportunity. We also had a lot of fun making Balloon art for all the kids. Check it out on our Facebook page and be sure to like us for announcements about upcoming free house cleaning contests! We look forward to hopefully being involved next year as well!
