5 More Years

You've heard me say it before. Our children are the first generation in HISTORY to be told they will have a lesser life expectancy than their parents. WHY? Because of the foods we eat and because of the lack of activity. "By the end of this decade, most Americans will exert only slightly more energy per week than if they slept 24 hours a day." from the site Designed To Move.

If you are overwhelmed at the thought of everything that needs change, just do something. Make physical activity a positive part of your daily life. Have your kids walk to school or walk the dog. Play a sport with them instead of watching tv. Look for ways that you can add just a little more activity in to your every day. It is truly one of the best gifts we can give our kids.
