Being Together, Eating Together, Moving Together!

Active family

One of the best things about blogging is getting the opportunity to work with initiatives that matter. Together Counts™ is something I believe in and have grown very fond of since becoming an ambassador for them in 2012. If you have never heard of Together Counts™ check out their website for all the details but the gist of their mission is to spread the message of energy balance and to encourage families to eat together and get active together. I am thrilled to say I have signed on for another year of Together Counts™ and look forward to writing more about active families and energy balance.  TogetherCountsBadge

I am a huge promoter of the family meal as well as being active as a family as well being an active role model for your kids. I also think the idea of energy balance is such a wonderful way to teach our kids about a healthy lifestyle without falling into the extremes of dieting or being at the gym every day for hours. Check the articles I shared on the Together Counts™ Blog in 2013 , you might  even recognize a few regular little faces.

    I love this message. Not only is it healthy, but I think eating together as a family and playing/exercising out side helps improve relationships. My children are still young at 7 & 5, but starting these habits now will help when they become crazy teenagers…I hope. I have fond memories of my family eating together each night.

    When the weather is noce, we almost always take a walk or boke ride after dinner. The kids got a kick ball for Christmas and have been into that as well. When the weather is too cold or rainy to go outside, we play hide and seek in the house at night with the lights off…super fun!
