Who is counting on you to be healthy?

Parents must meet the needs of their children. Sure, they'll need a house and a room and a place to sleep; Halloween costumes, birthday candles and wrapped present.But for now, all they really need is one thing--for you to be at the top of your game. They need parents who are fit, healthy and happy enough to do what needs done and have fun doing it. They need a parent who'll be playing on the floor more than lying on the couch. Your kids need a quick, clear thinker, a heavy lifter, and an all-around fixer of things mechanical and personal.When you're fit and healthy, you can give your kids everything that they need.Your future depends on what you do today. Choices you make now can affect you (and your family) for years down the road. Even the smallest decisions will determine whether you wind up at the top of your game or struggle along with the status quo.Your main motivation is the best reason you can think of for getting up, getting active and getting healthy. Your main motivation can be your very own kids.

I agree with you that nowadays we need to be on top shape because the children will be depending on us still even later on in life. Its not like the good old days when children at the age of thirteen think mature enough to take care of themselves and their parents as well. Nowadays children may be smarter, but they are also more dependent. Every little choice you make really does have a great impact on the future so the important thing parents need to do now is plan ahead or even way ahead.
