Saturdays with Jack! Sugar....It's baaaaad. lol
The things he says about kids back then?
I think they are doubly true today.
I watched a thin kid struggle up two flights of stairs...not an asthmatic, not terminally ill..
Just (as jack would say) "out of condition'.
My daughter and I race from my van to the door of her home school enrichment course on Tuesdays.. up those same three flights of stairs.
Can I tell you how much I enjoy running with her.
I never ran when I was morbidly obese.
I struggled to walk.
When I was a kid I played outside in the woods all day long.
I was skinny, because I was always moving.
We have to get kids back to eating good foods and moving more.
When I was morbidly obese, I was setting my kids up for a sedentary existence.
I was their example.
The bigger I got, the less I wanted to move and play.
I was also providing them the template for what adulthood looked like.
Now, it looks different for them.
And for me.
Have a great weekend,
See you on Monday.
