Teaching a Healthy Lifestyle to Kids
Hello from sunny Florida! Spring break is here for our family so we took the chance to escape the cold and rain and head to Hollywood Beach. Today’s post is all about how I keep my family fit, so we even took the time to exercise while at the beach. Finding the time to do it however is always a challenge with our family’s hectic schedule.
As my day job as a physician, I treat people with chronic pain on a daily basis. And the one thing I have seen with my patients, is those who exercise routinely feel better about themselves, and ultimately they have less pain. Knowing this, I try to lead the lifestyle that my healthiest patients do, and that means incorporating exercise into my routine on a regular basis. I also want to teach my kids the importance of regular exercise, but that can be tricky with my work and their activities. But the best way to do this though is leading by example!
So how do we accomplish this? Running has always been my favorite form of exercise to do. Running is hard work, and it definitely takes time to build up endurance. I feel so healthy and alive after a run! My girls and I weren’t always in the best shape, so we decided to make it a priority to run regularly together. Two years ago, we started out doing Couch to 5K. After three months of consistent training we were actually able to run a 5K. I love spending time with my girls when we run, as is quality time we are spending together and we get to stay in shape. We keep up this routine ever since we started it.
Reebok Classics from Designer Shoe Wearhouse
With fitness a priority for our entire family, of course we need good running shoes! My kids are growing so fast so that means every year we need new shoes. So when it comes to finding good running shoes for the family, our local DSW is our favorite place to shop.
I remember being so excited as a kid to get my first pair of Reeboks. Their classic styles (with an updated twist) can still be found today at DSW. Here my daughter and I are wearing the Classic Harman running shoe. My daughter loves that she and I get to wear matching shoes too!
We seriously love our Classic Harman running shoes. These are the most comfortable pair of running shoes I own! Not only are these shoes great for running, but they are versatile enough to wear to the gym and with a casual outfit for the rest of the day. And I love that my daughter is wearing the timeless style that I have loved for so many years.
So head to DSW and get your own pair of Reebok Classics. At under $55 for the women’s version and under $50 for the kids version, they are a great value as well.
So how do you like to teach your kids the importance of regular exercise?
As always, thanks for stopping by my blog!
