Staying Fit for More Birthdays

Staying Fit for More Birthdays | Ciao Mom

Activity. Fitness. We know that staying active contributes to better health and well being. As a cancer survivor I can say without a shadow of a doubt that fitness helped me recover, stay strong, and stay optimistic through it all.

During the Type-A Parent conference last weekend I had the opportunity to interview bloggers to find out how they stay active as part of the fight for More Birthdays.  The results were not a surprise.

From dancing, to walking, to running, and playing with children the voices of Amy, @ResourcefulMom, Jenn @MommyBKnowsBest, Amy @AmyBHole, Kris @LittleTechGirl, Emily @ColoradoMom, and Amanda @HighImpactMom echoed the sentiment that staying active is an integral part to living a life full of celebration, family, and of course, More Birthdays.

So the question is…What about YOU? What do you do to stay active as part of the fight for More Birthdays?

Love, love, love this campaign. Good for you, Elena. I go to the gym 4-5 mornings a week at 6:30 am. Not only is it keeping me healthy, it’s also keeping me sane!

This post for fighting for more birthdays is very near to my heart. Last year, I watched my mom go through 2 different types of cancers. What we do today, the choices we make (good or bad) sets the stage for our tomorrow (good or bad). While we can’t entirely prevent cancer, healthy living can lessen your chance of having it. My mom’s fight and her courage challenged me and inspired me to revisit the daily choices I make…turning those not so good ones into positive choices so my tomorrow will remain healthy too. Lots of birthdays to be had. That’s what I’m planning on for me and my loved ones.

Great program (and your video skills are just fine). I saw both my parents die way too young, my father especially was never active or did anything to prolong his life. My younger sister died from cancer at 43 after leading a sedentary life full of bad choices. I know that everything I do to stay active, and the work I do to keep other active, will help all of us have more birthdays.

Thank you for the video skills feedback :) — and yes, it is hard to not support More Birthdays. (Also, I am so sorry about your parents).
