1) Nutrition – A Natural Snack, Thats Fun and Enjoyable As Well As Good For You!

lotsoflarabarsMy New Addiction: LÄRABAR’s
Their Food Philosophy: Simple. Pure. Delicious.™

LÄRABAR firmly believes that the foundation of a healthy mind, body and spirit is derived from what you eat. And what you eat is healthiest and most satisfying when it’s in a whole, natural state.

LÄRABAR’s are a healthy indulgence you can feel good about eating.

And ladies “feeling good” is what it’s all about. I’m first to admit I LOVE my sweets, and if I could eat dessert after every meal I would. FINALLY, I’ve discovered LÄRABARs an indulgence that is natural and scrumptious.

Available at your local Health Food stores – stock up and keep them in hand!

2) Fitness – Exercise Of The Month

Triceps Dips (Back of the arm)
No equipment required here

tricep dips chairExercise: Tricep Dips
1. Sit on floor with your knees bent and hands directly underneath your shoulders.
2. Tighten your abdominals, bend your elbows and lower your body to the ground in a tricep dip.
3. Keep your elbows pointing straight back and only go as far down as you comfortably can.
4. Return to start position.

Tips: Keep your hips high– this is a tricep dip, not a bum dip!
Variation: use a chair or park bench, try lifting one leg, or use a stability ball.

Start with 2 sets of 20 dips – Increase as necessary

Say ” au revoir” to upper-arm jiggle and “bonjour” to buff arms.

3) Wellness – Wake Up Refreshed!

Brighten your mornings!

sunonbedLight tells the brain it is time to wake up. Your mind will respond to light and bring you out of sleep. Leave your curtains or blinds open to wake up with the sunrise. Or try to get 30 minutes of light first thing in the morning. Consider an outdoor walk as soon as you wake up, or as an alternative to commuting to work in the morning -getting your exercise in and waking up your brain, or try to have your breakfast by a sunny window.

Lights, Energy, Action – Have A Great Day!

A little encouragement to live by in June:
Try setting a realistic long term objective, and choose short term goals to make getting there an easier ladder to climb.

Start your workouts with an intension in mind and never loose sight of it while training – it keeps you on track and focused on achieving your goals!

    Hey Eva!

    I’ve tried a couple of the LÄRABAR during one of those moments when I didn’t have time to grab breakfast and I was being rushed off to a work meeting. Boy was I thankful I had one of those instead of letting my stomach’s gargling noises interfere with the work meeting!

    Great newsletter and thanks for the great tips and keep them coming

    Hi Eva,

    I am so glad to be on your mailing list – I love your monthly tips! They’re fantastic!

    I can attest to the powers of Larabars – they’re a nice sweet treat, but also really filling and give you loads of energy! I have one almost every day!

    Keep ’em coming!

    I also plan to sign up for BCBD for the fall!

    Thanks, Eva! Hope you’re well! I continue to do my workout, and feel great!
