Julie46

Hi, I am Juile age 46.  I never like working out, getting all sweaty and I don't like gyms.  But since I became a member of Dare to Be Fit, all that has changed.  I am no longer on blood pressure medication.  I look and feel more energic and trim.  People are comlimenting me all the time on how much I have changed.  I smile a lot more because I feel so good.  Coach discovered the 'gym rat' in me and I am proud to say that I am in the best shape ever at 46 years old.  If you are serious about exercise and healthy choices, then Coach, Ray and Ty will lead you every step of the way.  Dare to Be Fit is like my very own personal training club.  

Thanks for keeping me smiling!

Sick Kids

Being stuck at home all day is no fun. Here are some tips to help the days go by faster.

Kids' immune systems are still developing. That's why they seem to catch every bug that goes around. Colds, stomach viruses, and strep throat—you name it, and your kid gets it. When a child is sick it's not only tough for the child, but it can be stressful for parents as well. Besides the fact that it's hard to see your child in pain, you miss work, your day's interrupted, there's a long wait at the doctor's office, and there can be quite a bit of moaning and groaning.

The recovery period requires patience for children and parents. All a sick child may feel like doing is sleeping or watching cartoons but on days when your child starts to feel better but isn’t well enough to go back to school, he or she may start to feel stir crazy and get bored. When you've had enough of Curious George reruns, it's time to get more creative. Here are some quiet activities to make the days more enjoyable for both you and your kids.

Games and Puzzles

Sometimes life must go on hold when you have a sick child. Let your chores and work wait for later and spend quality time playing games or doing puzzles together. Dig out the matching game, Candy Land, Go Fish, or Chutes and Ladders from the closet and play as long as your child feels up for it. When those games get old play I Spy, Hide the Thimble (or other small object), or Twenty Questions.

Photo Albums

Kids love to see pictures of themselves when they were little. Let your child look through family photo albums, browse through pictures you've saved on the computer or your phone, or watch family videos. It'll be fun to remember old memories and make new ones while you're at it.

Fresh Air

If the weather is nice, a little vitamin D will do you both some good. Take a leisurely stroll, push your child in a stroller around the block, or just relax in the yard blowing bubbles. The fresh air, sunshine, and change of scenery may improve everybody's health and well-being.

Books

Most children, both young and old, love to read or be read to. Stop by the library to borrow some new picture books for young kids, novels for older children, or audio books for both of you. Reading is one of the best ways to spend free time or down time for both healthy and sick kids.

Crafts

A child who's well enough to be up and about may enjoy doing simple crafts. Getting creative with play dough, watercolors, stickers, beads, origami, or coloring books is a great way to spend a quiet day at home.

Toys

What child doesn't like toys? Legos, Barbie dolls, Matchbox cars, or baby dolls can provide hours of pretend play. If needed, prop up your child on the couch and place a few of his or her favorite small toys on a tray for playtime.

Cooking

You probably won't want to eat any food prepared by your sick kids, but they can still have fun creating their own recipes. Give them a few ingredients to mix together or teach them how to follow a recipe. Even if no one else eats what they make, at least they can.
