This is a sponsored post on behalf of Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital and Together Counts. Yours truly used to be a Girl Scout. From the time I was about 7 years old until I was 13, I experienced so much of my life through that organization. The memories are plentiful! The camping, the trips, the cookie selling… I REALLY loved being a Girl Scout. I’m excited to know that Girl Scouts in steadily doing fantastic things. In a recent partnership with the Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation, Girl Scouts has put together healthy habits booklets to help readers get a better idea of how they incorporate energy balance in all that they do.
These booklets are absolutely FREE and are intended to inspire and encourage Girl Scouts (and really anyone…) to lead healthy lifestyles. I find this to be perfect timing because while younger girls and teens may get in the habit of not doing much physical activity thanks to technology, these booklets will not only help them get moving in achievable ways but help them understand the importance of steady movement. When I was a Girl Scout we went on a loooot of camping trips and nothing exerts more energy in the Florida sun that camping. From the hiking to the putting up of tents and trekking back and forth to outhouses, camping was extremely physical. I’m so glad to see that Girl Scouts are still camping. I can’t wait to get Elle into her first Girl Scouts troop.
You don’t have to be a Girl Scout to appreciate the information that these booklets offer. In addition to these booklets, the Together Counts Program by the Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation has developed a principle called Energy Balance. It helps girls understand how to balance the calories they consume and the calories they expend. It’s best to understand this type of stuff at a young age, right?
