It’s been snowing here. Again. It’s like this winter just never stops. I don’t think it was this bad last year. Actually, I know it wasn’t. Fortunately, it’s still nice and toasty inside our home. So that’s where we stay, doing things together like watching movies while watching the temperatures continue to drop out there.
One such movie that we are excited for is Free Birds, released on Blue-Ray and DVD on February 4th. Starring Owen Wilson and Woody Harrelson, it’s an animated adventure about two turkeys who travel back in time. A hilarious movie for family movie night and I’m giving away a copy below!
In this time of winter and staying indoors, however, it’s still crucial to move around and stay healthy. Chris Powell, host of ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition” has a few tips to keep our kids big and strong.
Tip #1: Eat Breakfast. Mom is right, it really IS the most important meal of the day! Eat something hearty that’s going to give you a lot of energy, like eggs and toast, or yogurt and granola. Start the day strong!
Tip #2: Get to school at least 15 minutes early for recess. Run, jump, climb, and play your favorite sports. You’ll get some extra time with your friends, you’ll get stronger and faster, and you’ll supercharge your body and mind for learning!
Tip #3: Eat fruit every chance you get! Fruit is nature’s dessert, and comes in all kinds of fun flavors. You can never go wrong with classics like apples, oranges, bananas, pears, grapes and pineapple. But also try exploring new and crazy fruits, like starfruit or kiwi, grapples or mangoes!
Tip #4: Cut the soda. Any way you look at it, it’s just not good for you! If you crave sweet beverages, try naturally sweetened waters! There are all kinds of new flavorings for water coming out with natural sweeteners like stevia and monk fruit – find one that you love, and hydrate!
Tip #5: Be a lean and mean gamer. When you’re done with your homework, instead of vegging out on the couch with your PS4 or Xbox 1, get up and try playing one of their MANY active games. Get off the couch and LIVE the game! Run, jump, balance, shoot…get involved in your video games and get fit in the process.
