If there’s one thing I’d like to do more of as a family, it’d be to exercise. Good old heart-pumping, sweat-inducing, endorphin-raising kind of workout.
The husband and I used to be rather sporty back when we were younger and we’ve always wanted to inculcate a love for sports and exercise in the kids. We’d talk about how cool it would be if Truett turned out to be the next Jeremy Lin or if Kirsten became the next Sharapova. Or even if they don’t turn pro, it’d still be pretty cool to just hang out with them over a game of basketball as a family. I just need to have 1 more kid and we can do 3-on-3s.
When they were younger, we used to just bring them to the park to run around and get some fresh air but in the past year or so, we’ve introduced sporty activities like cycling and inline skating.
It’s been a little tough to get in a regular exercise routing ever since Finn was born, so our plan these days is to take whatever little pockets of spare time we have and head on down to the park nearby for a quick skating session.
The kids love it, we get to spend quality time as a family and we stay strong by maintaining an active lifestyle. It’s basically a win-win-win situation.
The older I get, the more I realize the importance of staying strong and cultivating healthy habits. So in addition to the exercise routines, I also supplement with Anlene, which helps by providing the necessary calcium for strong bones. With just 2 packs a day, I don’t have to worry about insufficient calcium or losing bone mass. I think that counts as another win.
