May 1 - 7 was National PE and Sport Week. The point of celebrating this week was to get parents more engaged in the process of motivating their children to exercise. Hopefully, you took some time during this week to encourage your children to participate in some physical activity. But do we really need a special, designated week to encourage our children to live healthy? I'm always encouraging my sons to participate in physically demanding activities. They are generally receptive to the message. Despite this, it's always important to continue reminding them about the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle. The Fit Mom's Blog featured a post on this week, but let's hope we don't need a national reminder to keep our kids busy.
