WEDNESDAY FITNESS CHALLENGE!
Every Wednesday in August slightly leading into September 8/6-9/24 we are going to do a fitness race either walking, running, jogging, anywhere, and everywhere. The Fun thing about this is even though summer is coming to a close soon we are still enjoying getting out! Total health is a huge part of dental health. Did you know Carrots actually work out the fibers holding your teeth? Interesting right?
If you'd like to join us in our fitness challenge send us a picture of your family fitness, take a "selfie" picture of your self being healthy, or send us a short story about getting out and doing something physically fit to firstname.lastname@example.org We will post your pictures/ short stories and our finale pictures after our fitness challenge on the blog to encourage others on overall health.
To get you started here is a Healthy recipe so you can give your teeth some healthy exercise as well as good nutrition for your body.
