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.
