Summer has officially arrived and it is hot hot H-A-W-T here in Texas. The kids are out of school and we keep our days filled with the gym (for me), the pool (for them), and playdates (for both of us). With it being so hot and this mama only able to take so much of the pool with three children, that still leaves us with a lot of time IN THE HOUSE. I'm trying to keep us busy, entertained and not bored.
I found that when we are at home on a hot day with nothing to do, we tend to snack more and move less. No es bueno! I want to teach my children to make nutritious choices and that movement can and is fun, that being active is the way to go.
Weight Watchers has come out with a new book, Eat! Move! Play!, that addresses these issues. Their book focuses on the family unit, understanding that we moms play a HUGE role in the food choices our children make and how active (or NOT active) our children live.
In addition, the book presents five simple rules that all families can live by for keeping the household fit:
Weight Watchers Eat! Move! Play! shows that when followed consistently, just a few simple household rules and practices are all it takes to get and keep your family living a healthy, active lifestyle.
Just today, while the kids were wrapping up with a movie on the TV, I was browsing through this book for ideas to get us moving and having fun, around the house. Although this idea was all mine, it was inspired while browsing this book.
As soon as the movie ended, I turned on the “excited mommy voice” and told my kids that we were going to run and play ball around the house. They looked at me funny for about two seconds and then they made a mad dash to grab every ball we own. They proceeded to dash around our house kicking, throwing and dunking baskets into imaginary goals.
They had a blast and so did I. Laughing, giggling, and sweating! Together. All of us.
Anyone that has a relationship of any sort with a child can gain useful knowledge from Eat! Move! Play! like grandparents, aunts/uncles, caregivers, etc. It gives practical, easy to follow activities and recipes for the entire family to follow. Not only that, it talks sensibly to us moms about our children and how to positively influence them.
