OSD: Can’t wait to hear tip #4 Heather!
H: This is one that I’ve found particularly challenging in the hectic life of the busy family —but something you can try!
HEATHER’S SASSY NUTRITION TIP #4: FIND A HEALTHY BUDDY
A 30 minute brisk walk with the stroller in the morning can really breeze by if you have some company.
OSD: Why is this important?
H: Well, first of all, you're more likely to stick to a routine if someone is holding you accountable. Second, being healthy can be enjoyable. A walk can become part of your routine and double up as a social outing.
OSD: What about during the winter in snowy places or on a rainy day?
H: Think about a local indoor track, or even a shopping mall. But try and make the walks brisk. Many communities have affordable gyms, some even with day care arrangements—or consider asking a friend or family member to help out to get that exercise in.
OSD: Okay, One Sassy Nutritionist, I may be calling you for a walk, soon!
