I hope you had a fantastic weekend and found some time for a bit of rest.
This week we are continuing to build physical strength and we are adding in a new layer....strong, mindful nutritional choices.
Physical task: Today you are going to spell out the answers to these three questions using the exercises posted below:
What is your best friend's name?
What is your favorite college or professional sport team?
What is your favorite food?
Beginners: Spell out each word once
Experienced: Spell out each word 2-3 times
Beginning today, let's ALL make mindful and healthy food choices.
Tomorrow I'll be inviting you to keep a food journal but for today let's just start examining what we are taking in throughout the day. Are we drinking water? Are we choosing healthy snacks? Could we add some protein to our lunch or dinner?
How we fuel our bodies is just as, if not more important, than the exercises we do to burn that fuel. If we work hard in the gym and come home and eat junk food, then we negate a lot of that hard work and sweat.
Today please just reflect on your food and water intake. Maybe make a few notes of how and when you are eating/hungry. Remember we have just 21 days for the STYT challenge....you can do this for 2 more weeks! We are in this together as one team.
Feel free to post any reflections here about the nutritional piece...or about your ABC Challenge. I would love to hear what names/words you spelled out and worked out! Have fun!
