but Im still stuck pondering yesterday’s post.
And all the great comments and laments.
MizFit, and the Bumbling Band I suspect, is an action person (which is different from her being her own superhero but kind of the same). Brianna gave us some great suggestions to get started and I cant help but wanna continue the process.
1. perhaps buy older children pedometers and let them see how many steps they take a day.
kids love gadgets, right? *I* wouldnt even add ANY pressure here with regards to increasing the number of steps taken. I think this might be a give and let go ( a roots and wings if you will) idea.
b. I loved Heathers comment yesterday about the LIFESTYLE not the LOOKS.
Perhaps we start talking to our children about what it’s like to feel tired & sluggish (“like walking through thick, deep mud”) versus energized & fabulous (“the way you feel in the morning after a great night’s sleep when you know you have a fun day ahead!”).
Have them demonstrate for us what each type of fueling might look like in action.
Explain to them how food is human fuel just as gas is (frickin’ expensive) fuel for a car.
Chat about how, when we put in poor quality fuel, we end up with a sluggish s-l-o-w moving HUMANvehicle.
Your thoughts? specific ideas?
Id love to generate a list we all could refer back to in those
holy crap I need a way to motivate my family/change the path we’re on moments.
