Motivation Monday

Let’s start the week off with a new snack and work-out move to keep up healthy habits!

This Week’s Work-Out Move: the wall sit. This intense exercise requires no equipment and provides the ultimate leg workout. It can be done while the food is cooking for dinner or even in your room before you get the day started. Stand against the wall, and sit down into a squat, stopping when your legs are at a 90-degree angle. Make sure that your knees do not go over your toes. Keep your back straight and shoulders back with your arms out in front of you. Hold the squat for 30 seconds to one minute. Repeat three times. You can increase the time as you strengthen your legs. Get the kids involved, and have a wall sit competition!

Healthy Snack of the Week: Brad’s Raw Chips. If you are up for a crunchy snack during the afternoon, this chip variety is ideal. They are made with all raw and organic ingredients. It’s a good way to sneak in some veggies for your kids as well! Brad’s Raw Chips feature different flavors, including garlic and vegan cheese, kale, red pepper and sun dried tomato. Grab a handful, and pack in a Ziploc bag for an on-the-go treat. Pair it with hummus for a little extra staying power.
