Super Size Me Movie Review - Does it Motivate You to Eat Better?

Saturday morning - I wanted to tell you about this movie we watched the night before last. Well, it was more like a documentary. You may have heard of it - Super Size Me. It is about a man who decides to conduct an experiment about the health effects of McDonald's food. He eats only McDonald's food for 30 days. Before, throughout, and after the whole thing he is being monitored by doctors of course. The results were amazing, but not surprising to me. He gained something like 25 pounds during the month, his cholesterol levels skyrocketed, etc. One of the rules was that he could not work out because most Americans don't work out. It is recommended that people get something like 20-30 minutes of exercise every day! Wow, I certainly don't. We don't eat McDonald's every day either. Anyway, my point is, it got me thinking out the lifestyle habits that my family has. Most of my family rarely exercise and I know I don't prepare the healthiest food I possibly could. One more thing for me to feel guilty about! My husband works out nearly every day; he's always been a runner. But, working out is one of those things I let fall by the wayside because I didn't feel like I had the time even though we have a treadmill AND Bowflex in my laundry room. Silly, huh? I am not overweight myself so I'm not concerned about me. However, I do want to raise my children to be active and eat healthy so that they can make good choices for themselves as they get older.

So, the next time I go grocery shopping I am going to buy more fresh fruits and veggies and actually feed them to my family instead of letting them rot in the crisper drawer. It's difficult to get in the exercise we need during the winter, but I'm going to find a way! If you have any ideas, e-mail me, and I'll put them in here! Now that it is finally the weekend, I'm not supposed to be working, but I wanted to stick this in here while it was still fresh in my mind. I typed most of it with my baby sitting in my lap. Times like that remind me WHY I work from home. At least I am near my kids all day, and that is what is important to me!
