How about that basketball game?
Actually the game was pretty awful but we sure did like the outcome! Happy that my mantra "Cmon Heels, Cmon boys!" was so effective!!! :-)
I hope you are having a great day.
Sharing a total body workout here for you to add in to your day if you haven't exercised yet. Exercises are basic and effective. Add intensity to any of these by adding speed or impact....or try going really slow and see what happens. Challenging!
Also...today is "clean meals." Do your best with this friends. Remember it's a process and if you can take small steps towards a cleaner diet, that's better than no steps. Drink your water. Eat a piece of fruit. Try for one less processed food. Small healthy changes will lead to bigger changes and healthier habits.
Hope you all are having a lovely day.
Your nutrition assignment for today is 4 fruits and veggies during your day. Enjoy more if you can but let's get 4 at least!
For your Wednesday STYT workout, I'm resurrecting an oldie but goodie. Using the alphabet workout exercises posted below, please spell and complete the following words:
1. Your name
2. Your spouse/partner's name
3. Your last name
4. Favorite college hoops team
Example : MARIA = 10 walking lunges, 10 squats, 20 sec v-sit, 20 sec forearm plank, 10 squats.
Please warm up for 5-10 minutes and go through this list of words 1-3 times. Be sure to cool down and stretch at the end too.
I would LOVE to see/hear about your workout on Wednesday and what fruit/veggies you work into your day.
Stay in touch friends. This group is your accountability team.
Believe you can do this.

Day 16. Total Body Tuesday.
Soooooooo I have had a great lesson in decreasing distractions on this camping trip. No cell signal or wifi here at the state park. It has actually been really good for me ( except when we were hanging on to every other word that came through satellite radio during the Carolina/ Kentucky game!!!)
This has been a great practice in being present and device-free....but it hinders my ability to post for these few days.
Today's clean meal is breakfast . Feel free to add lunch or dinner as a substitute if needed.
I recorded a video workout this am at our campsite! If you want to use this today, tomorrow or Thursday, please do!!
30-45 seconds work
10-30 seconds rest
Equipment: YOU, bench, chair, high step
Warm up: 5-10 minutes
Rounds: 1-4 rounds.
Cool down and stretch: 5 minutes at least.
1. Incline push ups
2. Seated get ups
3. Soldier march
4. Inclined mountain climbers
5. Crab toe touches , tricep dips
6. "Loading dock" both sides
7. V-sit toe touch options.
Remind yourself of your intentions.
Remind yourself of why you are doing this.
And get it done.
Have a fantastic day.
Day 9. Total Body Tuesday.
Today we focus on the total body, which means movement and nutrition. For our exercise today, I've posted both a video and a workout option. Feel free to do my workout or your own.
We are also going to have a "clean" lunch today. When I think about clean eating, I think about eating more of the healthy stuff and less of the not-so-healthy stuff, choosing whole or "real" foods instead of processed foods. An easy way to think of clean eating is eating food that has very few ingredients. Clean food is food that is closest to it's "natural state." If you pick up a food and it has a longggggg list of ingredients, then that is a processed food and not a "clean" food. Examples of clean foods: veggies, fruits, eggs, chicken, fish, turkey, red meat, seeds, nuts....
If this seems overwhelming and totally impossible, let's make it simple and possible. See if you can have a lunch today that includes at least one clean food. If it can't be entirely process-free, then try to get some clean aspects. Examples....a turkey sandwich on wheat bread with an apple as a snack (instead of white bread and chips). A salad with grilled chicken and an olive oil and vinegar dressing (instead of an ingredient/chemical rich bottled dressing).
I would LOVE to hear what kind of clean foods you come up with for lunch. Please share here so you can help all of us be inspired and motivated.
Here is the workout option:
The video shows examples of the basic 10 moves I listed for today. Feel free to modify to add or take away intensity. Options for adding intensity would be to include impact. For example: squat with a hop, jump switching the legs with the lunges, tap opposite shoulder on Plank or hop the legs apart and together on Plank, etc). You can also add or take away speed.
Have fun! Let us know what you do!!
Have a great Tuesday.
