The hustle and bustle of the season is in full effect! At this time of year, it seems especially odd to think of raising kids in a time when parents worried about children “getting enough stimulation.” With a two year old that is more-than-comfortable with a smart phone and a four year old who already battles […]

September is National Yoga Month and it’s time to celebrate! We’ve talked about the benefits of yoga for the entire family and know it can be especially helpful for children. From Yoga Cards, videos and games to a plethora of books, yoga really is accessible no matter where you live – you don’t have to be enrolled in […]

As some of you may know, I also have a healthy-lifestyle blog called, Eat Blog Run. I have the opportunity of managing it with these 2 lovely people: Heather of Rookie Moms and Christine of Boston Mamas. Here we are being awesome in our sparkle skirts, and a little about what we’ve been up to […]

Our family loves a good hike. Whether it’s in the woods, desert, beach, or canyons, there’s so much to explore on a hike. In Seattle, there are plenty of great hikes and many are just the right fit for kids. I’ve got a few tips for you to make your hike with children more enjoyable, […]

Working Out or Eating Healthy. Am I right? Well, both are on my list this year and I’m gearing up to stay on the “workout train” for longer than a few weeks! Here’s a few things helping me stay on track to healthy town. Image source Working Out The Gym: I have a gym membership, […]

Remember I told you about the team of running bloggers I put together called Eat Blog Run? Well, we conquered our race last weekend at The Relay in Northern California. 12 runners, 1 driver, and 2 volunteers made up our team of 15!! We ran all day, someone running every minute, for 200 miles in […]

Let’s the Winter Olympic Games begin! I love the Olympics and am happy to share some sporty crafts, games, and activities to celebrate the games. All week long I’ll be posting an Olympic craft series called: Winter Olympic Games for Kids! First up, I’ve found some fun Olympic crafts for kids from around the web. […]

As mentioned in my New Year’s Resolutions, I’m running a relay this year! I’ve ran a relay before back in 2007 with my family and it was so much fun that I had to do it again. So I decided to organize a team of few running women bloggers I know and create a relay […]

I’m a runner. Or at least I have been in the past and want to start up again. But I’m in desperate need of a good pair of running shoes. I’ve been running on the same pair for almost 3 years. So gratefully, Get Fit in Utah invited me to come in and check out […]

So it’s the end of the 3 month Family Biggest Loser Challenge. And guess who won… ME! Don’t you love how I organized a way for me to lose weight at get $10 each out of my family?! Wahoo! But my niece Becky did come in all too close for second place, followed by another […]

We recently had a day out with the family skiing up at Park City Mountain Resort. It was a blast! Jordan and I went skiing all day, while our two oldest kids took “first timer” ski lessons from the Resort’s amazing instructors! I’ve been lucky to live in Utah near so many great ski resorts, […]

Today marks the start of my Family’s Biggest Loser Competition! I’m heading up this year’s competition as I’m in dire need for it to happen. I’ve got the unwanted, flabby, extra, Holiday/baby weight that just won’t come off (or maybe it’s just my lack of healthy eating and exercise holding me back?!) Here’s our Family […]

On Monday Night! Don’t tell my husband this, but I actually like football. After asking tons of questions, I mostly understand it, enough that I enjoy watching it. I know what “pass interference” means and what a “safety” is. I love going to games and having a team to cheer for. Well, I mostly like […]

Eating, reading, and running are a few of my favorite hobbies. I’ve found some fabulous websites I love to visit for all three of these hobbies that help me love them even more. Eating: I’ve shared this before, but Tastespotting is the coolest website for food. It’s a collection of great recipes to be had […]

Heart Healthy Exercise Game

by Marie on February 7, 2008

At Valentines there is a lot of “heart” talk, so I thought it would be fun to come up with an exercise game to keep our hearts healthy. Throw the bean bag onto the board to see what exercise to do, then pick out a red card with the number of sit-ups to do. Then […]

I Was Running!

by Marie on August 29, 2007

I was running and running and running. I really felt like Forrest this last weekend as my family and I ran the Hood to Coast relay race in Oregon. We ran 197 miles in the most beautiful areas of Oregon. From Mount Hood, through Portland, country roads, and finishing at the beach. It was so […]
