My husband is average and my kids are thin. Kids eat relatively healthy. My kids are only allowed water and on a rare occasion a glass of milk. No pop no juice. They get plenty of fruits and vegetables and they dont eat a lot of fast food or junk. I premake healthy dinners, but there's enough leftover for two lunches. So it gets packed in their lunches for school.
Dh has a sweet tooth. So he likes to keep snack food in the house. Well, I've decided to make some changes. The kids are in a sport each(dd does dance, Ds does swimming) its only an hour once a week.
Well, I told Dh no more junk food in the house. I will be trying to eat healthier more frequent meals, but I also decided on 20-30 minutes of family exercise a day. Mandatory. My 7 yr old just cried for 30 minutes over the exercising. We did 20 minutes of stretching and basic yoga. The way she's acting its like I made her do 20 miles in the rain and on hot coals. Its ridiculous.
I worry that even though they are thin now, they will end up overweight because I'm overweight. Even though I focus more on their health than my own. Even my dh did some complaining about it to me in private. I get it. He can run 2 miles in 15 minutes. Good for him. We need to do this together. God :/. We all did it, but my did is still crying.
Its the end of the world in our house :/
