Now that summer is officially behind us, we can all look forward to the brisk days and cool nights of autumn. Here in the South, this is one of the best times of the year, filled with plenty of outdoor walks, picnics and fun. But for some of us, the fall season is already incredibly cold, thus limiting our time outdoors and also our amount of daily exercise.
Parents.com is helping to spread the word on how to Live Smart this fall. HealthyIs.Aetna.com is a new tool that will help families take control of their health and health care costs this fall. Knowing what small steps and simple changes you can make can dramatically improve your overall health and save you money too. In addition, Parents.com is hosting its own $300 "Live Smart" giveaway for even more chances to bring home some fabulous prizes.
Personally, I try my best to make daily "play dates" at the park with my daughter and give my all while I'm at them. Also, after dinner, it's really nice to go out on a walk around the neighborhood with my family so that we can talk and laugh together while we exercise. Since the days are constantly getting shorter, Riley loves bringing along a flashlight to play with while we walk. Of course, I still try and keep my own "gym dates" at least 3 days a week, so that I can work on my cardio and keep my heart healthy.
If you're currently struggling with developing a consistent exercise schedule and need some inspiration for fitting exercise into a busy schedule or maybe even low cost options to get you moving, then give these handy links a look.

I'm a former 7th grade Science teacher turned stay-at-home mom that lives in Houston, Texas. I am married to my college sweetheart and have a beautiful daughter named Riley, who definitely keeps me on my toes! I am also involved in starting a small business which would both manufacture and sell an invention that I've patented, called Toothpaste 2 Go. I love interacting with my readers and hope to learn as much about you as you learn about me!
