How do you find your healthy?? In our family, running is definitely a way we connect with our bodies to find our healthy! I’ve partnered with CVS to talk about how my family and I like to find our healthy. From age 8 to age 41, all of us find so much joy in the run. My husband and I met on the track team back in college so it’s fun now to have passed the gift of running onto to our children as a way to help them “Find Their Healthy”.
I can tell my children, ages 8 and 10, both feel stronger, more confident, and proud of themselves and the effort of their little bodies after they complete a run. Both hard and easy efforts seem to do wonders for my children’s attitudes and bodies. I find running provides both physical and mental fitness too! I think running teaches the kids to be determined and believe in themselves. And the same goes for me at 40 years old — I may have learned those lessons long ago, but I find I learn them on every run whether it be hard or easy. As we all know, sometimes the runs and workouts do not come easily!
A quick easy 1 mile jog on a trail or a difficult 5K race full of determination to finish releases wonderful endorphins and I can see my children’s spirits boost in a positive way even with the exhaustion of their efforts.
Kenzie and I ran a 5K together on Mother’s Day – we loved it! Here’s a cute photo of us.
Healthy Snacks for Fuel
Since our family is active athletically, we definitely need to find extra HEALTHY calories to fuel all our activity. As a Mom, I need to shop for healthy foods with some great energy and yummy taste to keep the kids and Dad making smart choices.
We all love the healthy options from the Gold Emblem abound line sold at my local CVS. When this line launched we fell in love with so many of items in their product line. With my 8 year old son having celiac disease and needing to eat Gluten Free, it was wonderful to find a line of foods that has many items which are gluten free, affordable, and convenient for Mom to shop for and find in local stores everywhere.
Have you tried Gold Emblem’s Abound products yet?
Abound, the exclusive healthier snack and grocery line from CVS, offers over 100 wholesome and great-tasting products that are free from artificial preservatives and flavors and contain 0g trans-fat. Hooray!!!
These are a handful of our families favorites. I’m obsessed with the Baked Rice Crisps. Every flavor is yummy but the BBQ style is my absolute favorite. My son is crazy for the Fuji Apple and Blueberry clusters. He can eat a bag in one sitting after a swim a practice or run!
My husband Mike is wild about these Jalapeno Cheddar Quinoa Puffs. I’m happy to buy these for him as it is FAR healthier than a bag of chips!
