We're incredibly spoiled for fabulous parks here in Charleston - one of my favorites is another waterfront park - actually called.... Waterfront Park ;-)
and of course strolling along the beach:
Even if we can't get away from home, there is always something we can do as a family - like kick the soccer ball around or take the boys out on their trikes while we walk or jog beside them...
Honestly, I think that the most important thing about being active together is just committing the time to Just Do It! And now there is a program that is dedicated to helping families do just that:
Together Counts is a nationwide program inspiring active and healthy living. The principle behind our program is Energy Balance, which means balancing the calories we consume with the calories we burn.Together Counts is holding a fun sweepstakes on their Facebook page at to celebrate their first anniversary. Prizes include gift cards, George Foreman Grills and a membership to Anytime Fitness. You can also find Together Counts at https://twitter.com/#!/togethercounts and http://pinterest.com/togethercounts/
It’s a first-of-its kind coalition that brings together more than 195 retailers, food and beverage manufacturers, restaurants, sporting goods and insurance companies, trade associations and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and professional sports organizations.
Another fun way to get more information is to join Together Counts as they celebrate Child Nutrition Month at a Twitter party on 4/3 from 8-9 PM EST. Prizes include $50 same-as-cash gift cards. For more information and to RSVP, visit http://resourcefulmommy.com/8856/together-counts-twitter-party/
I personally love that so many resources are coming together in one place to promote such an important topic and I encourage everyone to check out their website, social media or join the twitter party and share what you learn with your friends, readers and social network too!
