At the beginning of this challenge, I presented you with the various definitions of core and core strength. We discussed how that term can have many meanings:
-Our core muscles
-Something on the inside
-Something very important
As we continue to work on physical activity and core strength, today we add in a nutritional component to this challenge.
Today's mindful nutrition task:
For the next 5 days, I invite you to keep a food journal of what you eat. Over the next 5 days, we are going to talk about making strong, healthy food choices and how good nutritional habits can strengthen our core. You can record your food in a notebook or use an online tracker like My Fitness Pal or Fitbit's nutrition tracker.
All you have to do is write down what you eat and drink. 5 days. No excuses. You can so do this.
Today's physical task:
30 minutes of physical activity. Choose some type of movement that makes you sweat a bit (or a lot) and that increases your heart rate a little (or a lot).
During those 30 minutes (or added on after), please use the yesterday's alphabet and rock out the words below (STRONG CORE) so you can add in an extra burst of interval training today:
S squat, reach (jump up) C 10 jumping jacks
T 20 second plank O 30 seconds skipping
R 20 second V-sit R 20 seconds V-sit
O 30 seconds skipping E 20 seconds plank
N 10 walking lunges
G 30 seconds jogging
Beginners: One time through
Experienced: 2-3 times
Have a terrific Tuesday.
