Have you had Spring Break yet?  Ours was last week and our family had an amazing time.  I feel especially good about it because it was a very active vacation.  We didn’t go very far – just a two hour drive away – and we got a bargain rate staying at a state park inn.  Without spending very much money, we were able to have great fun, appreciate exercise, and get outside.  Spring is coming early to the midwest and it made the outdoors more accessible than it would usually be at the end of March.  We were able to go hiking, enjoy a campfire, Rosie played on the playground, and did some swimming (okay, it wasn’t that warm, the swimming was inside)!


We are hoping to teach Rosie the benefits of exercise and finding a balance between with exercise and what you eat.  After all, that’s what healthy weight management is all about.  That’s also what the organization Together Counts is all about.  Together Counts is a nationwide program inspiring active and healthy living. The principle behind their program is Energy Balance, which means balancing the calories we consume with the calories we burn. Calories in, calories out.  It’s a first-of-its kind coalition that brings together more than 195 retailers, food and beverage manufacturers, restaurants, sporting goods and insurance companies, trade associations and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and professional sports organizations.  Their purpose is to get more families eating and getting active together, with a message of moderation.
