Libby's Family Challenge 4/7/12

Saturday, April 07, 2012

At least a few days a week, I try to serve two vegetables with dinner. This gives everyone a choice of vegetables and they can eat two servings. Many times they don't even realize they are eating extra vegetables.

What do you do to encourage healthy habits for your family?

    I keep cut up veggies and fruit in the refrigerator. That way if anyone (including me!) has to urge to snack, there are healthy options.

My goal is to list at least three blessings everyday.

Here are today's blessings:

1. Spring Break! I got to sleep in today!

2. I have been cleared by PT to begin a walking routine as long as it does not cause pain in my knee.

3. Almost finished with Easter shopping. DD needs a pair of shoes.

4. Going to see Hunger Games with my family today.

5. Family, friends, and faith.

Feel free to list your own blessings. Have a wonderful day!

One thing I do to encourage my children to have a healthy lifestyle is encourage them to be outside for at least 30 minutes each day. Some days they grumble, but they will go out and be active usually for longer than 30 minutes. I try to go outside with them as well. (Lead by example.)

What do you do to encourage your family to be healthy?

    I only eat @ the table. Trying to get my DD to develop that habit. Sure makes you more mindful of what goes into the mouth.

Have a very wonderful Easter!

One of our family challenges involved pedometers. Two summers ago, we all wore pedometers. Who ever walked the most STEPS during the day got to choose the vegetable for dinner. We did this for a whole summer. I love tomatoes and the kids don't. It was very motivating.

What do you do to encourage your family to make healthy choices?

    We're challenging each other to drink at least 8 glasses of water/day. I have always done that, but DD needed to up her water intake. So, we do a tally@ the end of the day (the honor system). If DD keeps it up, I'll highlight her hair. Oh boy, that will be a project!
