Being a healthy inspiration to your kids

In addition to being about lifting and moving this blog is about me trying to be a healthy inspiration to my kids. The idea is to be a good role model, hopefully encouraging them to follow suit and build good habits.

One thing I’ve starting doing is to exercise in front them more often. This is to make my exercise more real to them, instead of just something Daddy does after they go to sleep. It’s been great to get them more involved and start to teach them some ‘gym rules’.

There’s more to being a healthy inspiration than just the physical though. If me (and Wifey!) bring up our children so they are physically healthy but can’t think for themselves, or are close minded or inconsiderate then we have failed just as much as if they were overweight sofa surfers.

I’m going to start reflecting that here more often and share stuff about nurturing good little people by exposing them to diverse experiences – different sights, sounds, foods and a variety of music. Plus anything else I think is interesting and relevant.
