YUP. That was my problem. When I was a kid, my mom fed us fairly well, but as time went on, she/we became more and more lax in our food selections....which is why I was (only) 205lbs @ mid-20% BF. Boy do I wish my parents didn't just say being chubby was the genes....it was our diets!
Agreed. I am thinking about marial arts, but he's such a spas (energy level is insane), I don't think he has the attention span for that level of training...yet.
Right now, I am going to try to keep him busy with swimming, gym, and general playing. (and snowboardin is in my plans for this winter - I can't wait to share my passions with him)
I hope to get him into Mt hiking this summer, as I think he'll have the endurance for it.
Other sports will happen, but not really until he's in school. Non-team sports have the advantage of flexibility for now =)
Thanks for all the feedback guys!
I am certainly NOT the model parent, but my kid will not be the husky kid that I was (I hated wearing those 'Husky' jeans - it's like wearing a label "Fat kid".
