Fighting on the Home Front: Keeping fit!

Good morning, Mrs. Jones! And what a fabulous morning it is. You've had your coffee and the children are off at school.

Oh my, you don't look ready to face your day! The clock is ticking on the hours you'll be by yourself, you should get as much done as possible so that your family time isn't wasted with cleaning what should have been done earlier.

Let's have a look in on Mrs. Smith.

That's right, Mrs. Smith is getting her day started right with a work out as soon as the kids are gone. Not only does this keep her fighting fit, but it also helps to boost her energy so that she can do what needs to be done!

It can often be hard to motivate yourself, so it's best to find a partner that does workouts that you enjoy. And don't forget:

It's never too early to get your little ones involved in physical fitness. Something as simple as letting your toddler walk instead of keeping them in the stroller can help their endurance, and when you have to pick them up, it helps you stay strong too.

Just like eating healthy, a regular work out should be part of your routine on the home front, after all, if our boys overseas can do it, it's the least we can do for them, too!

Keep 'em flying Mrs. Smith!
