Getting Physical again

We often say, if we could just bottle just a little of the energy that they boys had we would be great! Do your children have all this energy too?

It is great and I’m not knocking it. What happens to us that we can’t keep going as much as we did anymore. Yet when we look around we see such a variety in energy levels.

It’s been weird to find that if you’re tired and do exercise you have more energy. But getting up and doing more to get the energy is such a hard thing to do. Once I sit down at dinner with the boys I feel the tiredness wash over and greet me. Getting up is hard to do. I know that if I exercise during the day I will have more energy.  But it’s so hard!

Today the topic is physical. I’m focussing on physical activity rather than appearance however , I guess they are linked. After having children everything is a little different sometimes for a long while.


Have you used Fit bit to measure your activity or pedometer?

Have you run a 5 or 10K?

My goal: Go for a walk around the block during lunch- change of scenery, listen to something and get my heartrate up

Get out there an check out what friends and family are doing to raise their physical activity levels.

I know our kids will thank us for that.

Conversation: What are you doing or would you suggest to increase physical activity?

Links to reviews and giveaways are welcome as long as they are relevant to the topic. All parenting philosophies are welcome with one exception: please do not link to posts promoting physical discipline, as this is something we would feel uncomfortable having on our blogs. (P.S.
