Kids' Indoor & Outdoor Fitness Strategies

No matter the season, it’s important to ensure kids get up and moving so they stay on track with their physical fitness!  Here are some tips with many that offer the opportunity for some good old-fashioned family time.

Exercising need not be reserved for the outdoors as there is plenty kids can do inside of the house to get fit!  Here are just a few good ideas:
  • Walk or run up and down a stairwell multiple times (skip a step for added intensity and effectiveness).
  • Jump rope - yes, indoors too!  Just ensure that the child has enough clearance from that cherished vase!
  • Dance! Let the kids "boogie" away those calories.
  • Calisthenics (push-ups, sit-ups, jumping jacks, etc.) are great exercise and you can hold a friendly competition!
  • Hula hoop where, again, clearance is key here!
  • Crunches! Sure, let the kids watch TV but challenge them to do as many sit ups as they can while the commercials are on. Do this for at least one full TV program, which usually has at least 3 or 4 commercial breaks.
  • Shadow boxing is a great way to work the arm, leg and core muscles while also getting the heart pumping for some nice calorie-burning cardio. And, it’s fun. Kids will have fun showing you how they can “float like a butterfly and sting like a bee.”
  • Yoga (yes, for kids, too!) is great for developing body coordination and balance.
  • Stretching helps with flexibility, which is another sign of a healthy body.

Prefer the great outdoors? No problem! Outdoor fitness ideas abound, including:
  • Take a walk, jog, or hike. Raining?  Walk the mall double time!
  • Ride a bike, skateboard, or scooter.
  • Roller skate or in-line skate.
  • Catch a pickup game for basketball, baseball, football, tennis and others that get your heart pumping and muscles working.
  • Swim!  Forget doggie paddles; instead, do laps up and down the pool or, for the ambitious types, try butterflies!
  • Jumping rope is an old standby that offers an array of health benefits.
  • Take casual activity to the next level and add excitement.  Seek out community events, such as a walk-a-thon, bike-a-thon, or even a triathlon that accepts minors. However, competition should not be the focus. Instead,    the focus should be   on doing one’s best.  These events are often in support of a good cause, so children can also learn the value of fundraising and giving to those that are in need.  Let children pick a cause that is important to them and make sure the activity matches their physical abilities.  Families can even spend a couple of weekends prior to the event “in training,” getting conditioned and practicing team-building skills. 
  • Take advantage of local activity courses.  Many area parks and schools are set up with physical activity courses that span across fields and trails with exercises stations interspersed throughout.  These courses are good for all ages and levels of fitness.  Consider having your child visit these courses during a Saturday morning event with each session having a different theme or pace. For example, “Boot Camp” might be one such theme for your aspiring soldiers.  Children can even walk briskly between stations and then attempt to perform given exercises (push-ups, sit-ups, jumping jacks, balance beams, etc.) with parent's encouraging them along the way.  Children can set goals, such as trying to beat their time from last week, spotting animals along the route, or finding “treasure” along the way.  The course can be followed with a healthy family picnic lunch in the park.  Doing so will also teach children how to prepare healthy foods.
  • Take some lessons. Find an after school program, YMCA, or community center that offers lessons or activities that are physical fitness-oriented.  Your options are unlimited and may include tennis, dance, kick boxing, golf, swimming and self-defense.  These lessons will help your child become more well-rounded in many areas of fitness and may possibly help them find one that they enjoy and where they might want to take advanced lessons.
  • Enjoy an “extreme” family vacation.  Get your children involved in planning a dynamic family vacation that includes physical activities for everyone, both together as a family and individually.  Each family member should be able to plan a physical activity whether it is taking a walking tour of a city, playing volleyball, kayaking, white water rafting, snorkeling, skiing or snow boarding, hiking a trail or climbing a summit.  Together, your family can take the months prior to the trip to build up the endurance, strength, and skills necessary to enjoy your active plans.  The “vacation” can even be a simple day trip in your own neighborhood or something much more extravagant. Children can save allowance money for “cool” fitness gear or earn money to be used toward the purchase of specialty equipment by achieving physical fitness-oriented goals (like getting a yellow belt in Karate or completing a successful season on the swim team).  This will not only teach children about preparation, organization, and planning, but it will also motivate and reward them for engaging in activities that are good for their health.

The Cure for the "Perfect Life" by Kathi Lipp and Cheri Gregory

I've been reading this book, and I haven't decided yet if it's stepping on my toes or comforting me! I'm loving it so far and have already recommended it to several people. If you feel like you're struggling to live a perfect life, this is the book for you!

From the back cover:
Are you crumbling under the burden of perfection?
You know the expectations are unreasonable–even unreachable.
And when everyone else seems more together than you, where do you turn for help?
Meet Kathi, a disguised perfectionist always looking to put everyone else’s needs above her own, and Cheri, a formerly confused and exhausted poster girl for playing it safe. They’ve struggled just like you–and found the cure. With unabashed empathy and humor, they invite you to take part in their rebellion against perfection. Step-by-step they’ll teach you how to challenge and change unhealthy beliefs. As they free you from always seeking more or needing the approval of others, you’ll discover a new, braver way of living. At last, you’ll exchange outdated views of who you should be for a clearer vision of who you are in Christ.
The truth is you don’t have to be perfect.
You just have to be brave enough to read this book.

From the Introduction:
Even though we have different life stories, we’ve both succumbed to Try-Harder Living. We used to look for the nice, polite ways to follow God’s call. We caved to others’ expectations for too long. We finally decided stop taking our cues from the world and start asking ourselves, “What does God want from me … and have for me?”
And we’ve come to the conclusion: there is no nice, polite way to do this. There’s no easy way to leave the life that’s been expected of us and to start living the brave, not so neatly tied up life that God is calling us to.
We have to rebel. We have to make choices that are countercultural to our society, our families of origin, and even our churches.
We’re guessing that as you’ve read our stories you’ve said, “Me too!” at one point or another (or perhaps, several points.) Most women we know are fighting THL to some degree.
We get it. We’ve been there. We have the souvenir travel mugs. And because life isn’t perfect, those mugs have leaked all over our shirts. (It’s the official uniform for the recovering perfectionist—a nice white shirt with a huge stain down the front.)
Come join our rebellion. We have cupcakes. The frosting is a little mushed, but hey, they still taste great. And they aren’t homemade. But we’re okay with that.
As we share our own rebel stories and strategies, we hope you will
exchange outdated views of who you “should be” for a clear do-able vision of who you are in Christ.
take control of that too long to-do list so it no longer controls you.
stop striving to maintain an image and live with more freedom day-to-day.
overcome the tyranny of “more” and radically live with the abundance of “enough.”
stop trying to earn others’ approval and learn to rest in God’s lavish unconditional love.

Green Breakfast

Or: How to Get Your Kids to Eat Superfoods

Inspired by the green smoothies they made at Bethy's Girl Scout meeting for the Brownie Snacks badge, I bought some fresh spinach and kale to add to my fruit slushy. I added two big handfuls of spinach and a generous handful of kale to the blender with the liquid from a jar of mandarin oranges in 100% fruit juice. After I puréed that, I added two bananas, three chunks of cantaloupe, and three chunks of watermelon. Next came two handfuls of strawberries and two handfuls of blueberries. The last ingredient was a couple of globs (very scientific terms here, people!) natural applesauce.

Sam and I enjoyed some right then. Okay, I confess: I filled up the 23.5 ounce jar the oranges came in and proceeded to gulp down the entire thing, sharing a few sips and spoonfuls with Sam along the way.

I put the blender with rest in the refrigerator. After a while it gets thicker. Sam called it applesauce when I spooned some into a bowl for him this morning.

After he ate some of his, he snitched mine and tried to pour his into my bowl. I helped, and he happily continued eating. Being two-and-a-half, he decided to stick his finger in it then eat it off of his finger.

I am trying to teach the child proper table manners, so I told him to use his spoon. He complied, but not in the way I meant.

I'll just take the victory of him eating a breakfast of green leafy vegetables today. Maybe tomorrow he won't need a bath after eating...

Book Review: Totally Awesome Rubber Band Jewelry

I use Grammarly's plagiarism checker because it's said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but flattery is nothing more than furthering one's own interests by whatever means necessary anyway. And it's just lazy.

My daughter Sarah is squarely aboard the rubber band loom boat, so when I got the opportunity to review a book of patterns, I jumped at it. Since she is the one who used the book, I decided she should be the one to review it. I've pasted it below, just as she wrote it. She's 11.

Rainbow Loom
By : Sarah Arcand

The Book
  OMG! Rainbow Loom bracelets are trending fast! I found out about  The Rainbow Loom and bracelets when my mom, Crystal Arcand, got an instructional book on how to make Rainbow Loom bracelets to review. She asked me to review it! So . . . .

So Easy
  The Book and Loom are so easy to use! Pictures, bold words, step by step, and tips and tricks are so helpful and make it super easy to use, but I am very crafty just like my mom, Crystal Arcand.

My Bracelets
  I've made a lot of bracelets such as the starburst, single, triple, zipper, flower charm, back and forth, a fish tail, and earrings. All of these are easy, but I would still start with the single.

Would You Try It?
  I would love to try the book and loom, if I hadn't already! I think you would love this book too if you tried it. I love this book because it's easy to use and I've made a lot of bracelets, but not all of them - they are still coming up with new patterns around the world.

Totally Awesome Rubber Band Jewelry: Make Bracelets, Rings, Belts & More with Rainbow Loom(R), Cra-Z-Loom(TM), or FunLoom(TM)
By Colleen Dorsey
ISBN: 978-1-57421-896-1
8.5” x 11”, 48 pages, soft cover, 220 color photographs
$7.99 MSRP

I received a free copy of this book for review. All opinions expressed are those of the author. Links to purchase the book are affiliate links for Crystal Arcand.

A Life With OCD

I live with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, often referred to as OCD. You usually hear "OCD" combined with laughter as someone uses it to describe someone that has shown a preference for things to be just so. As someone that is truly diagnosed with OCD, I find those instances belittling and insulting. If people understood what OCD is really like, they wouldn't find it funny at all. In A bit like that? Combatting the myth about OCD, Dr. Stephanie Fitzgerald says
"I wonder whether these people would still be keen to say they are a bit like that if they truly understood OCD? If by saying ‘Oh, I’m a bit like that’ they knew they were admitting to thoughts of harming a loved one, anxiety about driving because they believed they had run someone over, or harbouring such fears about contamination that they would be unable to hug their own child?" [emphasis mine]
OCD-UK logo
I want to help end the myths about OCD, and to end the stigma of mental illness. It really is not something that we can turn off at will. Believe me, if I could turn it off, I would in a heartbeat. This is the best explanation of OCD that I've found. I can share some of what it looks like in my head, but this is the best explanation I've found of the overall landscape of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.

I am in the ruminations/intrusive thoughts category. The stress and anxiety caused by intrusive thoughts are deep. It has taken years for me to learn that the intrusive thoughts are not secret fantasies that make me a horrible person. It's more like being forced to watch a disturbing movie. I live huge swathes of time via movies in my head that I can't stop, often in just seconds. It has led to a lifetime of soul-crushing guilt, and paralyzing fear and doubt.

I remember one of my first instances of intrusive thoughts vividly because it was so disturbing to me. I was going to the local senior center with my maternal grandmother. I had just finished washing the dishes and was taking a handful of sharp knives to the kitchen from the industrial washroom. I passed my grandmother, and in that split second, my mind flashed through a scene of my body running the knives into her stomach, taking them out, and repeating the action several times like a robot while my mind screamed ineffectively to stop my body and my eyes watched in helpless horror.

That was over 20 years ago.

My Meme
Few people have heard the story because I always believed I was a horrible person for even being capable of having those thoughts.  I love my Meme. She has been an integral part of my development as a person. So much of my pride-of-heritage, identity, and practical knowledge stem from that beloved woman that now runs a senior center at the age of 83. I always questioned if some dark, recessed part of my mind was really this murderous psychopath just waiting to spring out. To this day, the memory of that thought riddles me with guilt and fear.

Knives are still a trigger for me if I'm not vigilant. I have fought my mind through such innocuous things as changing my baby's diaper, picking up my kids from a babysitter, and driving over a small bridge. Being a mom with OCD is fraught with fear and guilt. I couldn't tell you the times I've suddenly clutched one of my confused children to me - tears threatening, or even overflowing - to banish some intrusive thought that struck my heart with fear and self-loathing.

Now before you tell me it would go away if I just prayed more, or read my Bible more, or if I were really a Christian (yes, all things that have been said to me), you must know that I prayed, pleaded, cried out to God to take away these attacks from the devil for years before I sought medical treatment. I sang hymns when they came; I went forward for special prayer at every opportunity at any church I attended; I was anointed with oil; hands were laid on me; I was prayed over specifically; I sat, naked and sobbing in the shower, begging God to release me for uncountable hours. Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder is not something that can just be prayed away. To tell someone with OCD that they simply aren't Christian enough is to pour salt into a gaping wound.

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder isn't a personality quirk, positive life choice to indicate tidiness, spiritual lacking, or joke. It is a real disease. Please treat it and its sufferers with sincerity and compassion.

NaBloPoMo: Most like myself

the last time I got to dress up as
The Cat in the Hat - March 2012
When or where do you feel most like yourself?

Ai. Um. What if I'm not sure what myself feels like?

Okay, I lie. Well, not lie, but myself is several selves, I think. I feel equally comfortable talking to my Girl Scout group or chatting with mom friends. Discussing Shakespeare is as satisfying to me as reading Dr. Seuss to children.

I feel like a nut.

I suppose you could say that I am most like myself whenever and wherever I am connecting with someone and expressing myself. I am a connector, I think. I seek that lightbulb moment when eyes light up and someone says or thinks "Yes! You get it!" To be understood - felt, validated - is so important in life. Hearing "I see you" like in Avatar. I see you. I see your heart. I see your past. I see your intentions. I see your fears. I see you.

I think expressing myself, whether through talking, writing, or acting, is a big part of connectedness for me. How can I connect with you if I don't show you some part of myself? Vulnerability is a prerequisite of connection. But it takes courage to be vulnerable. What if I'm laughed at? Scorned? Misunderstood? It's a huge risk.

But oh, the payoff when that connection happens!

And that moment, that place. That is me.

NaBloPoMo: Your writing voice

NaBloPoMo March 2014
How is your writing voice like you? How does your writing voice differ from you?

When given creative license, my writing voice is much like my conversation. My blogging - indeed,  the majority of my writing - is intended as a conversation between me and my readers. It is full of half-formed sentences, broken thoughts, opinions, bunny-trails, and questions.

When writing as a professional, my voice is all properness. (Yeah, properness probably isn't a word, but this is me writing, not me writing professionally, so I get to use it. I'm channeling Seuss today, so there.) Proper grammar and sentence structure are used, and all that schooling comes into play. I'm capable of those things; I just prefer not to use them in daily life.

NaBloPoMo: Tell us five interesting things about yourself.

Me in December of 2013
I'm incredibly transparent, so there's not really anything about me that somebody doesn't already know. I think I've told all of my stories. Somehow, though, I feel very uninteresting and don't know why I blather.

  1. I have a large birthmark on my back between my should blades. It is very faint, though, and I didn't discover it until I was in college and had been tanning. I also have a small one on my right bicep. When I ever get the courage and money to get a tattoo, I want it to be slightly darker than my skin tone so it looks like a birthmark.
  2. I've had unexplained joint pain since I was a toddler. Episodes involve every joint in the affected limb. The joints do not swell, and cold exacerbates it. I never know which limb will be affected in an episode until it hits, and it sometimes travels from one limb to another during an episode. I've been tested for all the arthritic and rheumatic illnesses and have come up negative for all of them.
  3. I was in a pageant in high school. It was for Miss Mineola. I placed third out of seven girls. My favorite memory is singing "Pharaoh, Pharaoh" backstage to get us to smile big just before we walked out on stage. I hate looking at pictures of me from it because my blush was a disastrous racing-stripe effect on my cheeks. I loved my dress, though, and still have it.
  4. I've been referred to as a walking encyclopedia, dictionary, and reference. My brain is full of useless historical and linguistic trivia. I've been known to read the dictionary for fun, and I like to study etymology. I've read the majority of Shakespeare's plays - although I refuse to read Titus Andronicus - and the majority (if not all - I can't remember at the moment) of his sonnets. I was an avid reader in my youth, and actually enjoyed most of the required reading in school. I loathed The Old Man and the Sea; The Grapes of Wrath is an exercise in verbosity. I recommend reading A Separate Peace every ten years, beginning in high school and commencing ten-year intervals at 30.
  5. I've breastfed children for 5 years and 5 months of my life. Brandon was four months exclusively and supplemented for an additional five. Sarah and Bethany were 13 and 15 months, respectively, and Sam was 28 months. My goal with Brandon was 12 months. I was devastated when he weaned himself at 9 months. My goal was 18 months with the last three. Breastfeeding my children is one of the things that make me the most proud.

NaBloPoMo or, I'm feeling delusionally ambitious

NaBloPoMo March 2014
So NaNoWriMo is really inspiring to me and I'm awed by my friends that participate (I'm looking at you, Beanses). I've written a lot of words in my time. I've even been paid for the words I've written. Not so much recently. I've always felt a pride being able to say I'm a writer, but these days I feel like a liar when I say it.

So I just saw something about NaBloPoMo - National Blog Posting Month. I fully understand the concept of do [your chosen vocation] everyday. I even subscribe to The One-Minute Writer. I even read the posts when they come in my inbox. Then I delete them without acting on them, because "I just don't have the time." I know: it's one minute, eejit! I'm just consistently inconsistent. And depressed. And tired. And a mom to a toddler. And, and, and. Ugh.

The theme for this month is self. Seriously, Universe? This is the time you choose to reveal this to me? I know. It's like Idris. "...I always took you where you needed to go." Okay, okay.

Blahblahblah. I'm going to attempt. Yikes.

So, catching up. Weekdays have prompts (see them here). Weekends are for free writing, so I'll use the OMW prompts then.

March 1:
Today's Writing Prompt: So What Do You Do?
What do you spend most of your time doing - when you're not writing, of course!

I spend most of my time chasing Sam or chauffeuring the top 3. Generally avoiding housework. Trying to figure out when I can go back to bed. Crocheting. Feeling like a failure. As a wife, mom, housekeeper, person. You know, the same as everybody else.

March 2:
Today's Writing Prompt: Delayed Gratification
What's something good in your life you've had to wait for in order to have?

The biggest thing was kids. We tried for two-and-a-half years to get pregnant with our first child. I thought I was barren. We were discussing if we wanted to get testing done to find out what was going on with whom, if we wanted to foster or adopt, or just get a dog. I remember feeling like that Biblical woman whose name escapes me at the moment.

If only I had known then that the heartbreak I felt then at thinking I was barren and wouldn't have children would feel like a pinprick compared to the daily heartbreak I feel looking at my four children and worrying about their futures. Don't get me wrong. My kids are a good thing. But they are also a hard thing. The days are long; the years are short.

On some completely unrelated notes: Happy Seussday and Texas Independence Day!

Girl Scout Cookie Valentine Tags Free Printable (Little Brownie Bakers)

I'm a Girl Scout troop leader, so of course that means my brain is totally occupied with cookies right now! I've been thinking of ways to market my Savannah Smiles because I have a lot of them still and thought of "pucker up!" in conjunction with Valentine's Day. Then being weird OCD thorough, I decided to create tags for all of the cookie varieties.

Post a comment if you have cookies from ABC Bakers and would like me to create tags for those varieties as well. If there is enough interest, I will create a file and update this post.

In the spirit of Girl Scout Sisterhood, 
I am offering this file for free. 
Please feel free to share the link with our fellow Sisters, 
and do not sell this file.
