Living Healthy is a Family Decision

, by KTVB News Anchor, Maggie O'Mara

Channel 7's Maggie O'Mara shares how her family embraces a healthy lifestyle and the importance of being a good example for your kids.

I moved to Boise in August of 2000, and one of the first community events I took part in was the St. Luke’s Women’s Fitness Celebration – now known as FitOne. I had the best time, and I met so many new people. It was so exciting to see thousands of women in downtown Boise! Over the years, I took part every September. I even covered it for the news, and eventually helped anchor our coverage on KTVB. It’s been a wonderful experience over the last 14 years. I look forward to it every year.

Since I had my first son in 2010, I’ve brought my kids along. I just pop them in the stroller, or in the baby carrier and we’re good to go. One year, I wore my baby daughter on my chest during our LIVE coverage. In 2011, my Mom flew in from California to join us! Last year was the best year yet, that’s because my husband was able to take part in the event with me and our kids. FitOne has opened this special day to men and families. I love that!

As you know, living a healthier lifestyle is a family decision. It’s important to get everyone in the family on board. I just had three babies in under four years, so I’m working hard at getting the baby weight off, and trying to get in better shape. I want to be a good example for my kids. I want to have energy to play with them, to take part in all of their activities, and to run around the yard with them! Events like FitOne give me the motivation to do that.

Come join us for FitOne September 20th. I’d love to see you and your family there too! It’s going to be a great day.
