There's a new poster up on our refrigerator: the Franck January 2009 Health plan.
Each member of the family can earn points each day for such things as: no sweets, chocolate, candy, pie, or cake; exercising 30 minutes; no pop, energy drinks, kool-aid, (or beer); eating 1 cup of vegetables in two 1/2 cup servings; losing pounds of weight; and drinking 8 cups of water in a day. A cumulative tally will be kept, with community prizes like spend a night at the Edgewater resort with waterpark, take a trip to the Cities, go to the YMCA, etc. More rewards will be posted.
This will certainly be an interesting and hopefully healthy January.
