Dads and fitness

Sunday, June 16, 2013

Having been a part of running and now multisport events over the decades, I can't help noticing how many Dads are the athletes. Or how many Dads are bringing the kids to watch Moms who are athletes. Fitness is a family pattern.

And I think about my childhood, and the things my own Dad did to encourage us kids in being fit. This might be a trifle subtle, because athleticism was NOT at the top of the parental list of approval. However, Dad insisted that we all learn to swim. And Dad and Mom's financial situation and the city's school transport situtation were such that we WALKED to and from school. Dad made sure we all had bicycles for transportation. And we used them, too. He was also a fan of kites, and going out to fly them.

Later in life, when I made my first big push to lose weight and took up running, Dad got on the band wagon and started a walking program of his own. Mom and he often went for a walk of an evening, just so they got some time away from the kids.

From a nutrition perspective? Dad was a big proponent of eating the veggies. Granted, they came from a can, and included corn and peas as staples, BUT, the idea was there. And he was a huge fan of breakfast, every day... one of his staples was oatmeal. Granted, it was loaded with brown sugar and butter, but the idea was there, too. So I do a few things differently these days, but the important bit: parents are extremely important role models.

So if you're a mom or dad... doing what you're doing on Spark? Not just good for you... good for the little ones whose eyes are following you around!

LIFE is good. Spark on! And Happy Father's Day!

  My Dad and Mom were both from small towns where slo-pitch was a huge game and skating in the winter. Yep we all played ball and skated from the time we were small. My brothers and I are in our 50s and have all remained very athletic to this day!

I miss my Dad everyday and thank him for making me who I am so that I can continue to show my son how important health and exercise are in life!

    I was thinking about my Dad and fitness the other day as well. I remember when we entered our Teens and had just moved to a new home in the suburbs after growing up as city kids. We were bored to tears. He started taking us to the track to run. The intention was there, but after awhile he bored of the routine and pretty much insisted we do it without counting on him. Still, in just introducing us to the importance of exercise is something that lasted in my mind and I've always gone back to it after periods of being a couch potato.

    My parents did not encourage activity or healthy eating. They did the best they could but these items were not on their list of priorities.

My daughter has actually inspired me and keeps me going. It fills my heart with joy when she tells me she's proud of me.

I love being active with my kids.

Great blog!

    What a nice memory of your Dad! I'm glad you shared this.
I grew up in a "mixed" marriage. Dad was proud of my athleticism. Mom hoped for a more traditional (pre Title IX) daughter.

    I was also influenced by Dad. Even after a stroke and advanced age he still strove to walk his morning mile. At 86 he pushed his walker with the seat, stopped every so often and chatted with neighbors on his walk. Taught me a lot about perseverance.

    Reading your blog brought back memories of my parents. Like me, mom was a professional dieter and did every fad diet. She was doing low carb before low carb was cool. Dad never really ever had a weight problem, but he did have heart disease when he got older. I don't know if it was in his genes, or the type of food he ate. Mom was a really good cook.

Mom would do things like Jack LaLane, leg exercises, and all most of us do. It's funny I hate all that and don't last long when I try. But growing up, we always camped and had our bikes with us. We would usually go swimming. We would hike and just have the best time. Guess what my favorite exercise is, walking and hiking. It just makes me feel good and it always brings back good memories. So mom and dad both instilled good habits into me without even knowing it.

    Athleticism was certainly NOT at the top of the list for priorities in school, but when I took up diving, Daddy was there with his camera. He got a couple of shots blown up to 11 x 14 and hung them on his den wall. Never was sure at the time whether he was proud of my diving or proud of his photography, but years later said it was a little bit of both.

By the time I was older, there was the walking trail that started at Cotner and Vine by Bethany Park. Dad regularly walked that trail to 48th street and back. At one time, I believe his pace was about 4 mph. (the math major in me calculated it)

    Other Dad activities:

Gardening: The total activity didn't take with me, but I learned how to spade and prepare a garden bed, without power tools.

Lawn mowing: There was never a riding mower, and for a while there was a muscle-powered push mower.

Planting trees: Dad didn't hire a landscaper. He dug the holes, or had a kid dig the hole, and planted the tree himself. That's digging with a spade, not with a backhoe.

The stories: Dad moved to Fairbury, and saw a town he could walk all the way across. I don't remember that time, but I sure remember Dad talking about it. The story about how he used to laugh at the neighbors who drove to the grocery store, because it was only a quarter mile (or was it a half mile?) from home. How that influenced where he bought a house, within walking distance of two grocery stores. "Walking distance" to these stores was over a quarter mile but under a half mile.

Vacations: Camping, hiking up Scott's Bluff, walking/hiking the trails at Chadron State Park.

None of it was competitive athletics, but a lot of it was active.

    I wish I could say that my Dad was an example in the areas of nutrition and fitness, but he was not. At least not when I was growing up. I went to visit him last year and he does seem to be paying more attention now, but he was definitely not one to encourage those behaviors when I was learning all of my daily habits.

Oh well, he is who he is and I love him because he is my Dad!

Reality for now...

Friday, June 14, 2013

otherwise known as "plan B" and "life changes".

My kid sis's family and extended family are settling in for a long recovery for Kelsey. Her mom is still on the high alert, present with her at the hospital, as various medical things are tried, and the slow recovery continues. Other family members have to settle in to the reality of things like continuing to work, care for the little one year old, and continue the mechanics of life.

My work has entered the heavy construction phase of "the big project". I am finding myself waking with thoughts of "what's next" there. On the nutrition front, the pull between the "shoulds" and the "anxieties" is a challenge, despite the "body appreciation week" I had last week.

So... back to the one day at a time reminders to myself:

* Drink your water! emoticon
* Eat what's in the bag! That's why you packed it full of healthy options. emoticon
* Remember to go to recess! emoticon
* Take time to breathe. emoticon
* and of course, keep praying. emoticon

And balance. This is LIFE. It is GOOD, it is precious, it is worth living, one day at a time. Spark on! emoticon

    I find that the most cruel part of dealing with a crisis or a death is that life continues even though you want everyone to STOP and pay attention to the problem you are trying to handle. I remember so often my sister-in-law (a nurse) insisting that my mother leave the hospital with someone from the family, eat something nutritious and to get some rest when my father was in for one of many stays.

    Thinking of you. Praying for Kelsey. You have been handling a very heavy workload for some time now and you know how to do it, with those walks, that packed bag, with the right attitude. Don't wear out. Don't give up. It is worth the effort, and sometime struggle. With family stress and challenges now, too, it would be understandable if you shifted your priorities, but think it through, logical you. Giving up your good health habits is not going to help anyone and it definitely will hurt you. I don't envy you trying to balance it all, but I do believe you know how to do it, you know it is important, and you can do it. Hang in there. -Marsha

Crisis mode versus waiting patiently mode

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

Quoting from Kelsey's mom's FB comment: "The doctors say we have to remember that this is a slow process.. it will take time. How much time, they don't know for sure."

As is my habit, I will take what's in the rest of my life and on my mind as fuel for the journey called "healthy living" and supporting motivation. With this precious young one's health crisis we had a scare. How often do "crisis" elements stop us in our tracks and perhaps redirect us? In fact, many of us who are traveling the path of healthy lifestyles began one phase or another with some form of crisis.

But when the crisis begins to feel not quite so severe, the question becomes, to what point do we "stand down". The human being is not built to stay at high alert forever. We wear out, and need to rest, take care of the physical body while our minds are dealing with the stressing factors.

So as the family sets in to continuing prayer and patient waiting in the case of Kelsey's health, the need is to pace themselves, and to give one another respite and breaks from the temptation to "will" faster results.

Dear Heavenly Father, give those who love someone undergoing long recoveries, this family and others, the patience to run the long distances of life... physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

LIFE is good. And precious. Cherish YOURS... and Spark on!

Biking to work

Tuesday, June 11, 2013

I biked to work today, which made for a really warm, windy ride home. The ride TO work is downhill, in the cool of the morning. The ride HOME is uphill in heat and crosswinds. It felt good to push against the wind and up the hills. There are times when physical effort battles the anxiety of waiting and watching.

Got good news off facebook about my great niece's mom... they put a temporary pacemaker in and it has her heart beating at 80 beats a minute. That's a bit fast, but it's beating! Now there's still a whole lot I do NOT know about her condition and the whys and the whats. But I have to feel this is a hopeful sign.

So with that good news, and praising God for it, I shall toddle off to clean my teeth and head to bed. Love you all, my Spark friends. LIFE is good. Spark on!

Prayers from the praying

Monday, June 10, 2013

I'm going to email the atheists I know who are "good people" and ask them what they do for friends who have misfortune enter their lives when there isn't much you can physically do to assist? I pray, when that is what I have to offer.

Right now I'm asking my Spark friends who do pray to please pray for a young woman who is right now on full life support in a hospital in Omaha, Nebraska. She is the mother of my nephew's one year old daughter. Young, apparently healthy woman, started having "flu" symptoms last Friday. To the ER, admitted, then transported to Omaha today where they are doing tests.

Current medical update says it is a virus attacking her heart. So if you are one for whom prayer is a practice... please pray for Kelsey.

Thank you. LIFE is good. And precious. And fragile. Treasure and protect it! Spark on.

    Oh Barb! Definitely will say prayers for her! How utterly sad. that's all you can say about a situation like that.

And I pray that God guides those caring for her too to find an answer and treatment.
