Of course this was only two of many events but I am sure by now you can fully appreciate the pattern of how these develop into complex scenarios.
The boys have left now, back to Northern California and although I am sad to see them go I am happy to purge the fridge and pantry from items that are extremely tasty and decedent but are so bad for my training regime.
- Out with the Cinnamon Rolls in with the Spinach
- Out with the Chocolate Milk in with the fat free Soy Milk
- Out with the Blue Bell Ice cream (Minus one Spoon) in with the Blueberries
One of the things that I know that my kids is that interaction is paramount.I realize that if I don't stay reasonably fit and active in my own life and lifestyle it makes a huge difference in what I am able to do with my kids.
It would be so easy to throw a video game in their general direction, or turn on the TV but to me that has a similar feel to pushing the "Snooze" button on the alarm clock.
I am trying to get my boys into cycling and Sam the oldest (12) was quite thrilled when he was able to sustain a 20+ Mph clip for 5 minutes or so on his first road bike experience. (Sam Right)
