Being the busy mom of three that I am I try to get out for a run whenever I can. While the kiddos are at school you’ll often find me inside a gym class. Being a young mom I want to stay healthy and active and yet I still want to have fun with my girls. Being active as a family is one of the greatest gifts you can give your children. Not only are you spending valuable quality time with one another but you are also being active and setting a healthy example.
As a family you will often find us hiking and exploring local parks. This fall I plan on running my first half marathon so you’ll find me running around my neighborhood with my girls in the jogging stroller. It’s fun for them because it allows them to explore and get out of the house and helps me further push myself towards my running goals.
My girls also do gymnastics and dance and being the mom of three princesses I try to spend time having fun with them. One thing we like to do together is stretch. Especially if mommy is leaving for the gym or out on a run alone it’s fun for them to get into the action too.
Yoga is one of those exercises that is not only great for adults but for children. It’s incredibly easy to do and my girls just love it.
There’s nothing better than a cool treat after some fun with the family. One thing I like about Lipton Pure Leaf Teas is how full of flavor it is. Tea is one of those things we drink a lot of in our family. Full of flavor and yet light on sugars. It’s all natural and has no added colors. There’s also a variety of flavors to pick from and everything from unsweetened teas to a sweet peach diet tea!
There’s nothing like coming home from a long run in the hot California sun than to a cold glass of my favorite Lipton Pure Leaf Tea. As a mom I can also feel great about having it in my fridge for my girls to enjoy!
Pure Leaf is real brewed iced tea, which means it’s brewed from REAL tea leaves picked at their freshest, never from powder or concentrate. The result is a refreshing iced tea with perfectly balanced aroma, body, and flavor. Learn more at http://www.facebook.com/pureleaf
