Hi Everyone! I LOOOOOVE summer! It’s the perfect time to enjoy being active with your family, that’s why today I am sharing 5 secrets to turning family time into fun, active time!
Growing up in Southern California with four brothers and sisters, we were always active. And that’s what I have tried to share with my two daughters: a passion for being healthy and taking on physical challenges with a “you can do it” attitude!
What we do as parents is so important – our choices filter down and blossom with the next generation. Being active helps build self-esteem and confidence, especially for girls. My daughters Kelly and Katie were both into sports growing up and they are still very athletic. Today, Kelly is in the music industry and Katie is an amazing fitness expert in her own right. I am so proud of both of them!
And we’re still active as a family! As soon as my daughters come home for a visit, we go out for a walk and talk. Walking is our catch-up time. Katie and I LOVE working out together. In fact, a lot of people wonder how we’ve created that workout bond and how we keep it going, so here are my five secrets to turn family time into active time.
The AARP Fit & Fun Health Challenge is fun – enter (and invite your loved ones), then visit the site every day to log your 30 minutes, watch weekly videos, enjoy great tips on how to nourish your mind, body and spirit, see photos and comments from walkers who have joined the challenge across the country AND earn chances to win some amazing sweepstakes prizes.
