Meet the Healthy Kids Start with Healthy Families Family

Lisa Alexander applied to be the Channel 8 Eyewitness News Health Family because, “My small family, my son and I, are embarking on a life-style change.”  Lisa says that they are in the process of getting bikes that fit and want to lead a more active lifestyle.  “We belong to the YMCA but really don't go very often” she admits.

Lisa explains why she applied, “My son told me the other day that he would like me only to buy healthy food to have in the house.  He took the Youth Fitness Class the YMCA offers this Winter and he is geared up to get fit.”  They have a dog and even he gets tired on longer walks.  Lisa admits that they all need to get in shape.  Neither she or her son have health complications because of our fitness, but she imagines that if they don't do something soon, that it won't always be the case.

You can follow Lisa, her son and Channel 8 Eyewitness News Chief Meteorologist as they work to live a healthier lifestyle.  Each Monday night during the Channel 8 Eyewitness News, Kevin will offer tips during a segment called Motivational Mondays.  We'll also show you what they do and how they are doing to get on the road to a healthy lifestyle.

Healthy Kids Start with Healthy Families is sponsored by Partnership for a Healthy Lincoln and Amigos.
