EXERCISE:

As you already know Thursdays are cardio days so stick with your cardio routine i.e. walk, jog, run, bike, swim, elliptical, row machine, stairs, etc.  Make sure it’s at least 30 minutes long.  Or for fun, try dancing and singing as you’re doing chores today.  You won’t realize how hard you worked or know the exact calories burned but you’ll be moving while having a good time.

Another Powerful Ben Coomber Podcast … Kids Nutrition

It makes no difference whether you are a child, teenager or adult. The association with nutrition is often the same or similar in my opinion. The struggle is real. But does it have to be a struggle? I think not.

Ben Coomber’s podcast #186 with Jennifer Bulcock was powerful and it made me think, take notes and type like a mad woman. It struck so many chords with me regarding my own health & fitness journey as a child, teenager and adult.

Ben and Jenn also offered a FREE children’s nutrition video Here and FREE Nutrition for Kids e-book download Here.

Happy Saturday to all,

Today I’ve been thinking about food triggers.  The top 7 would be:

  • Location – Certain chair in your house; going to grocery store hungry; or a place like a movie theatre.
  • Activity – Watching tv, studying, reading, or socializing.
  • People – Friends you normally go out with to happy hour, dinner or partying.
  • Occasions – Birthday parties, weddings, holidays, summer parties.
  • Sensory – Candy display, smell food, taste a bite of a sample at a store or restaurant.
  • Time – Time of day i.e. afternoon snack time.
  • Mood – Anger, sadness, depression, insecurity.
