Loved these ideas. ..Thanks!
good family Ideas..thanks
After reading this article I had my family each pick out an activity to do as a family that they will enjoy,so we will be roller skating, bike riding, hiking, and basketball. We will do one activity every Saturday, and its marked on the calendar.
Great ideas here!
Great ideas, excellent article, thanks for sharing!
Dad and I do Orange Theory weekly together
i love these ideas!! I love especially the working out during commercials. There are so many great PRACTICAL tips in here. I really appreciate that!! Thanks!
Many great ideas! Hope those who can put them into practice!!!
Great article, although I don't think it will work for my family.
Daughter? Well, forget about cleaning! It is a job getting her to do her chores. But outdoor activities... we are always playing tennis, walking, tetherball, X-Box Adventures whatever the mood brings.
Husband is rough. He used to have a job that would pay him to exercise for an hour each day... he never did. He only likes scuba diving or hiking with his friends from the fire department. The only thing he likes to do with family is watch television, although we manage to guilt him enough to get him outside occasionally. .
Today is the first day of the rest of my life. What matters now is what choices I am making and what I am doing with my time. The kids are getting older and its time for momma to shine.
I really like these ideas. I don't have kids, but I have a husband who takes a little too much advantage of the fact that his weight stays the same even if he does not work out often. Maybe I will post this on the fridge in order to give him the hint ;)
I like these ideas especially the tresure hunt for goodies.
