There is no better time than today to tackle these goals head on, and your local fitness centers and Ida Alive members want to help you do just that. From walking on a treadmill, to taking a fun group exercise class, to learning about nutrition, a grocery store tour, to getting wellness checkups and the like, we want to help you commit to and make the switch to a healthier and happier lifestyle this year.
We encourage you to renew your dedication to reaching your fitness and wellness goals as a family. Talk to your kids about where their food comes from, have fruits and vegetables available for each meal, try new foods to expand their palates, read nutrition labels and help them understand what a portion size is, go to farmer’s markets and grocery stores and let them choose items, cut back on fast food, banish candy and chips from your home, establish sleep rituals, and head outside to get some fresh air and valuable exercise this winter!
Your kids and grandkids are watching you. What you eat, what you say, and how you move your feet is important to your heart health and to their future health too! Leading by good example is always the best policy, so get your tennis shoes on, eat an apple for dessert, and move every day. Enjoy your special time together, support each other, and do everything you can to be healthy
