Exercise is Good, Right?

Exercise is Good, Right?

Postby JoLynne on Fri Mar 22, 2013 11:52 am

When I was in middle and high school, I didn't see the value of exercise. "Lazy" was my middle name. Wasn't until I was in my 20s that I started running and dancing again, and now I'm practicing karate. So I know there's hope. But my 13-year-old daughter will do anything to avoid exercising, and I can't help but worry. She has so many skills and talents, and (other than the occasional hormone-fueled grumpy teen moments) is really a great kid. She's good with computers, good in math, a good writer, a good artist and a food friend. I feel like a bad mom, though, when I see her just sitting there. Sometimes I decide to fight the good fight and demand that she get some physical exercise that day, and sometimes I get tired of the struggle. Keeping my fingers crossed that she'll one day discover how good it feels to move. Who else has similar issues at home? How do you deal with the issue?

Gymnastic places that have open gym times are fun. How about going for a walk on the many trails around ( well when it warms up) . Indoor pool places like YMCA or Matt Ross. They are getting exercise without even knowing it :-)
