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: around-the-world plank. Try this variation of the plank to keep your core muscles guessing! Building strong abs is part of functional fitness, so you will be able to keep up with all of your kiddos more easily. Lie down on your stomach; then, lift up onto your forearms. Hover while keeping your core tight and your back straight. Make sure your head is neutral by looking a few inches in front of you. Here comes the mix-up! Straighten your right arm out to a 45-degree angle, and bring back to center. Then, step the right leg out and repeat this motion on the left leg and arm. Keep this circular pattern up for 20 to 30 seconds. Do 3-5 sets for some strong momma abs.

Healthy Snack of the Week: spring parfait. Whip up a delightful parfait for a snack that has some spring-time flair. Grab a Greek yogurt, fresh papaya, a handful of Goji berries, Agave nectar, coconut flakes, and toasted almonds. Fill the bottom of the dish with a third of the Greek yogurt, adding a layer of sliced papaya. Spread another layer of yogurt; then, drop a handful of Goji berries on top. Finally, add the last layer of yogurt and sprinkle the top with toasted almonds and coconut flakes. Drizzle with Agave nectar to your liking. This parfait is packed with protein, fruit, antioxidants, and a little bit of sweetness.
