I've had a great day; ate good, got plenty of sleep and even got back to running after battling the flu for about three weeks. I was even able to tackle cleaning the house and making home made Irish potato leek soup for the ladies at work tomorrow. I am however at wits end with trying to get my son interested in living a healthier lifestyle. Getting him to eat his veggies is like trying to give someone involuntary oral surgery and I've been trying to think of more creative ways to get him active. I've given up on taking him to the gym with me because he gets bored and starts rolling around in the floor most of the time. I suppose rolling around is still active right? I feel somewhat responsible for his present state of being; he was diagnosed as obese with high cholesterol, thyroid issues, and asthma. I feel maybe if I'd set a better example a while back he wouldn't be in the condition he is? On the flip side I can't account for what the other parent does when I'm not around. I guess I'm trying to fight two people's battles when it comes to health and it has become exhausting, mine is hard enough. So any ideas or tips anyone has is most welcome.
