1) Nutrition -A healthy snack that you can make yourself

Over the years I’ve been given the nickname Monkey – mostly because I’m always on the go! Similar to a monkey who swings from branch to branch I suppose. In order to keep my energy up I try to be prepared with healthy snacks while on the go.

This way I’m equip with the right tools to get me through what I call “moments of temptation” – ever been on the go, feeling a little hungry, but don’t have a snack with you, so you stop into a coffee shop and grab a muffin? NOT A GOOD CHOICE! If only you were prepared with a healthy alternative like…MONKEY MIX!

Monkey Mix (otherwise known as Trail Mix)
Ingredients: whatever you want! (or don’t like, raisins…yuck)

trailmixSuggestions: Peanuts, Cashews, Almonds (all unsalted), Dried Cranberries, Dried Mangoes, M&M’s or Peanut Butter Baking chips…just to name a few.

Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl and store the mix in small pre packaged snack sized Tupperware, or large Tupperware and keep your mix in the cupboard for snack time!

Easy to make, nutritious and delicious – TRY IT!

2) Fitness – Exercise of the month

goodlunge1Legs- Lunges
Helps strengthen and shape your butt, quads, hamstrings, calves, and helps with balance.
Great because you can do them anywhere.

Exercise: Walking Lunge

  • Start with feet together, shoulders back and down, core engaged, hands on hips
  • Take a generous step forward, bend until you make 2, 90 degree angles with both the front and back knee, stretch both legs and return to standing position by bringing the back foot into the front
  • Repeat 12x per leg
  • 2-3x

Tips: Start slow and keep control of your core

3) Wellness – Stress management suggestions

facialSpend 20 minutes a day doing something that is for you, relaxing and not work related. Try having quiet time reading a book, taking a walk, a bath, stretch, or listen to music. Its important to take time to check in with your internal spirit. Taking time for yourself can help you stay grounded and can re energize you. (longer than eating a candy bar, drinking a pop, or eating a bag of chips.)

4) News- A Group you’ll want to follow

Fitness and Nutrition go hand in hand and are partners in achieving your goals. I’m am excited to announce that I have teamed up with Meghan Harris (http://www.NutritiousMeg.com) a Women’s Nutrition Expert to help educate women on the truths about fitness and nutrition.
