Fun Fall Activities for the Family

The temperature may be dropping, but that doesn't mean you have to be cooped up in your room til next spring! Check out these fun and healthy ways for you and your fam to get active during the fall season!

Fall Activities - Jump Up, Jump Up and Get Down!

Notice all those leaves carpeting your backyard? Chances are pretty high that the 'rents will put you on yard duty, but here's how you can make it fun - rake up the leaves into a big pile and jump in it! Be careful not to jump off anything that's too high off the ground, or else you'll hurt yourself.

Fall Activities - All Falls Down

Leaves are not only good for jumpin' in, but also for decorating! Take a hike through the local park to check out the beautifully changing colors of the leaves. Collect as many different leaves as you can find, as well as acorns and pinecones. You can paint, stamp or frame them into some pretty cool art pieces.

Fall Activities - 32, 64, Hut!

Fall is the season for trick-or-treating, giving thanks and playing football! Playing the game is a lot more fun than watching it, so put down that remote, get off the couch and gather up your friends and family for a friendly game of touch football. You can even dress up in team colors to really get into the spirit of the game.

Fall Activities - All Around the Farmyard

Farms offer a lot of fun activities during the fall. You can run around and get lost in a corn maze on a corn farm, go apple-picking at an orchard to bake a pie with your mom, or go on a hay ride or tractor ride!

Fall Activities - Have a Spa Day

After all that jumpin' and runnin' around, you're bound to work up a sweat. So come in from the cool weather and head to the spa with your ma to relax and unwind. Many spas, like the Ritz-Carlton Spa Orlando, offer teen spa packages that include exercise classes, make-up and skincare tips, and healthy lunches that you actually help make!

EndlessDream is right. Skipping breakfast and lunch can result in stomach ulcers and sudden weight gain (had personal experience...), ESPECIALLY skipping breakfast! You have to incorporate exercise in your daily routine. Stomach and body fat is mostly caused by lack of exercise, and maybe that means you need to do toning exercises. Try doing simple exercise videos like the 3-mile powerwalk on YouTube (trust me, I sweat like crazy when I do those workouts). Anything that gets you sweating, is the kind of exercise you need to do.  I hated working out when I first started my weight loss journey too. I would always start wheezing every time I started working out. But after pushing through everyday, I think working out is one of the best stress busters I've ever had!  If you want to lower your appetite though, I suggest eating a full lunch and breakfast and skipping your dinner. If you can't skip dinner, then at least try aiming for an early dinner, around 5:30 or 6:00. Your body needs time to digest at least 4 hours before you sleep. I started gaining weight around puberty when I was 12, it could be the same for you too.  But honestly, there's nothing wrong with having consciousness about your weight. Now starving yourself and dieting is BAD, but there's nothing wrong with changing your lifestyle in order to be fit. It's a good thing that kids start caring about their health, and the earlier you start, the better off you are.

You need breakfast and lunch. Starving yourself, even if you aren't hungry, makes you loose energy to the point you could pass out from not eating. Keep your diet healthy. For breakfast, at least have yogurt, fruit, and juice. Drink at least 4 full glasses of water a day. Trim down on the snacks. Everyone has different bodies and build. You may just be large-boned. And that's not bad! That makes you stronger and higher ability to gain muscle. Loosing weight doesn't happen over night. It can take months.

For years my parents would tell me I'm skinny but compared to other people, my waist was bigger and I would always hide it. Though it was obvious I weighed more, I've only been doing this for a week and I didn't ever tell anyone what I was doing until my parents found out. I would skip lunch and breakfast and say I was full. I only ate a big dinner every night. Once my parents found out, they said it was unhealthy and if I didn't  stop, I would develop an eating disorder. I obviously listened to them, but I've tried as best as I can so far. I have barely lost any weight from exercise and my parents won't let me go on a diet because I already 'eat healthy enough'. I want to lose weight without exercising being 3/4s of my lifestyle. I know, I'm a lazy idiot for saying all this.

Yes, purely for the fact that you should not "hate" your sister (or anyone, for that matter).  I'm guessing by "get in trouble for her", you mean she does something wrong and the blame is all put on you? Yeah, little siblings tend to do that a lot. My brother did for the longest time, until my parents found out how much a liar he is. She, hopefully, will grow out of this eventually. Either that, or your parent[s]/guardian[s] will eventually see through her. You lose your friends to her? By this do you mean your friends want to hang out with her and they want you to tag along and you don't? Or do you mean your friends chose your sister over you? If it's the latter, then perhaps you shouldn't have ever referred to those people as friends. You'll find friends who'll prefer you over your sister, I'm sure of it. The only thing I can tell you to do is try to get along with your sister. Every group of siblings has their cats and dogs moment in life, but they grow out of it (most of the time; there are, of course, circumstances where it doesn't work out that way). Please be grateful for your sister, even if you two fight a lot. You never know how much you need something until it's gone.
