It's easy for me to become obsessive about exercise and eating right. I realized the other day we were in trouble when my 5yo held up his Honey Nut Cheerios and asked, "Does this have too many calories?" I think it's extremely important to teach children how to live healthy but there's a balance. For me it works best to schedule my exercise. I can workout in the morning, but the rest of the day is focused on my boys. I also try to keep it real with meal planning and treats. We will eat healthy meals most of the time, but it's okay to go out on Saturday night, or plan a meal that has cream of chicken soup in it every once in a while (you should see how excited my boys get at those dinnertimes), or eat a bowl of ice cream while we sit around and chat at night (we try not to do it every night, I promise).
How do you keep a balance between being healthy and enjoying life?
