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: jump rope. Grab your kid’s jump rope and exercise
theold school way. It may be challenging at first, but it will be beneficial for yourcoordination skills as well as your health. Start off slowly and jump for as as long as you can. Go at it for ten minutes and work your way up to 25 minutes. When you get to the point where you can go for minutes at a time without stopping, jump for 40 seconds and rest 2o seconds. This provides an interval effect that helps heart health and calorie burn. If the rope is too much, try jumping in place sans jump rope. You will still get the hops and the movement necessary for benefit. Get the kids involved with your workout and have timed jump roping contests!

Healthy Snack of the Week: cinnabun shake. Yes, you can slurp down beverages that taste like cinnamon rolls and still be healthy. What good news to start your Monday! Grab your blender and pour a half a cup of almond milk, 16-ounce Greek yogurt, 1-2 tablespoons of cinnamon, a few ice cubes, handful of raisins, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon Agave nectar and a handful of mixed nuts. Blend and enjoy!
