Good LUck sportos!

Good luck sporty types who are leaving us this week for AIMS. I am especially impressed with those of you who have been 'digging it in' with extra training for cross country.
these days adults tend to view kids as more lazy and less active and more poorly fed than previous generations - we all ran to school, ate nothing but fresh vegetables, worked for our pocket money and respected our elders - in short, we were paragons of virtue.
I wonder if any of you other than the AIMS kids do any physical activity or cool non-technology- based hobbies in your own time. and how well do you eat? and do you work for pocket money? Please fill me in....

i play tennis, pretty good at it, play about 3 times a week, yea.......
i eat quite healthly cause my mum read this "healthy living book". Did you know u should eat ur veges and fruits 1st cause meat desindergrants (is that how u spell it) very slowly and by that time your veges and fruit would have rotted because of the heat. (what goes down ur throut disindergrates 1st)

good luck AIMS, try your best, don't give up and represent peachgrove well!!!!! :)

I'm mixed, like my parents is a bit concerned about my health so we weet-bix in the morning, fruit for lunch etc, etc. I have a MSN and e-mail. I draw, read and write heaps oh yeah and make stuff. I make games for my siblings and they find it fun. I play manhunt, tiggy, bullrush, runlaps and go to the park, oh yeah and housework. I don't get poket money, I just do jobs for my family.

I agree with Mr Woody when he said that our generation is more obesise than your generation because you didn't have compuetrs, playstation or TV and so you were always playing outside so you didn't die of boredom, but nowadays there are heaps of stuff to do so we that more than playing outside.

i have found that although we have plastations & computers it can get really boring and some times i would give anything for my mates or brother or some one to come outside and play with me because it can be really boring by my self.

o. and i love to make huts and things out of blankets or boxes, like at the moment i have a big box from fathers day. and i cut holes in it to make it really fun then my bro broke it and mum wont let me have any of the other boxes so i did extreme make over the box eddition.


ash. :-)

p.s i have weet bix for breakfast but i put heaps of sugar on them so its not very healthy. i a sugar fanatic and i cant help myself from eating sugar!!!

Mr Woody said...

ash, laffy, ernesto - great comments - very enlightening - it is wonderful how you people share your thoughts like this, so openly.
and ash - i love making huts too! i did it with blankets and heavy books between my desks when i was a kid - now i make them for cats - it drives sasha nuts!

I love making huts too, my siblings would pretend were are camping out in the woods and there were lions and stuff and we would hunt them. I agrre with ash about the how you get bored even with this tech we've got.

I do karate and run around a lot at home. I also have a gully at our place that I sometimes go into. I have to clean my room every week and empty the dishwasher every day. (my room is a pigsty so it's really hard to clean!) My dad and I want to be chefs so we are good at cooking and we grow most of our own vegetables. I like doing a lot of other stuff as well, like swimming and stuff like that. We hardly ever get sweets and stuff like that, I only get some if my friends are around. But I play on MY computer HEAPS of times and go on the internet because I can. So I'm not perfect.

I've trained really hard for the cross-country in my own time. I went from getting 4.6 in the beep test to being the 19th fastest person in N.Z! I've also changed my eating habit. You still can eat heaps but just of the right food. For instance before AIMs i ate 10 weetbix for carbs!

Mr Woody said...

you are a legend magster!! truly a champ!!!

Howdy! said...

Gee, thaks for your support on AIMS guys!

Well, I love to run and sorta just do my own thing outside! I used to go on our trampoline HEAPS, until it broke. I grew up on that thing, but last weekend we finally chucked it out. BOO HOO!
Apart from that I muck around with, soccer balls, netballs(although it would be better doing this if we had a netball hoop Wink wink, nudge nudge), tennis balls, bouncy balls, and basically just do what I feel like doing.

Although they do help us learn, computers are advertised poorly, and made out as the bad guys/girls!
I do like to go on the computer, but outside is fresher, healthier, and better for you.
Outside you have to use your imagination a lot, but inside sitting stuffily on the computer chair is only giving your hands exercise, and a little of your arms.

YOU decide, would you rather be healthy and fit, or sick and lazy?

Mr Woody said...
