Back to school? Were you & the kids healthy over the break?
Haylen_WebMD_Staff posted:
My daughters started back to school this week and I was reviewing how the holidays went for the family.

Aside from the usual seasonal treats, my husband and I went out of our way to get in some sort of physical activity with the kids daily. We took walks, scooters to the park, ice skating and bowling.

It was challenging! I wanted to stay in PJs some days since the school routine was on hold.

How did you and the kids do over the break with healthy eating and activity?
Chris Tiongson, MD responded:
Our weather was more like October than December/January this year, so the usual sledding, skating (and shoveling) were out.

My son was able to play football in the yard with his buddies.

Over Thanksgiving, our whole family had the 3rd Annual Tiongson Turkey Trot. It was sorta like a flash mob of walkers/joggers/strollers through the neighborhood. Great way to start out the holiday season.

While traveling, I would hit the hotel gym with my daughter who would work on her dance team routine and stretch while I was on the machines.
