Denver Deal: Consignment Sales, Ballet Nouveau, EBook and Ski Deals
My daughter was never much of a runner. She never really likes to do much more than sitting in front of the TV (and could probably recite nearly every show on the Disney Channel). But one day recently she told me that she wanted to run with me. At first she said she would go just one mile, then the next day she went one and a half, and then it was two. Now, she is running 3 miles with me nearly every day. And we get to spend some quality time together – getting healthy TOGETHER! Running is what it was for us. But there is an amazing bike ride called the WackyW in Douglas County that offers a fun opportunity for kids and parents to participate in a bike ride in one of four different distances.
I’m excited to get to go try the new fit and healthy menu at IHOP with her next week. IHOP now is offering special under 600 calorie breakfasts including Quaker Oatmeal, Whole Wheat Pancakes, Whole Wheat Waffles and Whole Wheat Crepes. So now that we have the working out part – we can work on the eating better part!
