Fox News: “As a mother of three young children, and what is your advice for parents who are feeling nervous about flying with the little ones?
JJD: That’s one thing I get asked as a mother, all the time. Traveling with the children, the infants, mostly under 5, and it is not a walk in the park. It’s very, very difficult, and you have to be very, very prepared for it.
It is at this point that everything is, in my opinion, is simply to continue to be healthy and fit. iPads, and bring – ’em-up. We call them “emergency suckers,” I will not buy it in bulk and it’s vitamin C [win] from Whole-Foods. We can whip up, [remove] from the that ipad, that the markers, the coloring of the book. Everything will be going on a plane, in order to prevent them from being healthy, but you’ll need to be prepared.
Please bring a snack and bring water. To make sure that it [the drink] to have the caps, you don’t want things to spill out. I would never have a drink if they can get it without the cover. Or, even if they have to give you the lids — they’re going to spill, it doesn’t matter what it was. It’s inevitable, at any given time.
JESSIE JAMES DECKER OFFERS ADVICE ON FOOD AND FEEDING OF THE FAMILY
A lot of parents can struggle to find time for the gym. What is your advice for busy mums and dads to sneak in workouts?
My mother used to tell me that there are very few things that you can do in order to be in some sort of training or type of activity. For example, if you go to the grocery store, or Target, don’t go to the nearest parking lot. Find the furthest point, that is, an extra-long walk. Take the stairs, take the stairs. I don’t like to use elevators. If there are stairs, six flights of stairs, I’m going to have them. Even at home, when I’m up and down the stairs, I’m running, up and down the stairs. It may sound crazy, but it’s the little things that I can think of is that the add-on.
But it’s hard when you’re a parent, you have to try and find the time, but the way I see it, if you can get it for only about 15 to 20 minutes of a circuit workout or something, and you don’t even have to have the weight of the package. You’ll get a 75 jumping jacks, 20 pushups, and 100 crunches, 100 lunges, if you can get it, and you will be set. If you do that consistently each and every day, you will see a big difference.

We have a beach house in the Gulf, in Florida, and this is our happy place. We are going to have as many as we can, and we look forward to being at the beach, on the boat. Our house is on the right side of the bay, and on to the dock with our dogs, taking their children to the country club, and the give him or her a little ice cream, and they are very excited as well. This is something that we have to look forward to.
