On your marks, get set, eat! Is that how you approach every meal time? Are you competing to be the first one finished with their plate? If you find yourself wondering “what did I just eat?” or “was that food even good?”
The Reboot Challenge is complete and the results are in. For all of those who participated awesome work! During the last five weeks, the challenge participants followed the Whole30 Program and practiced daily habits to help build a better mindset around nutrition and health.
Coming at you today with a more personal post. Earlier this week I attempted a pull up for the first time postpartum…YIKES! I quickly felt defeated after I realized I am starting back at square one. After experiencing a difficult labor and a much longer recovery due to pelvic floor dysfunction my rehab and fitness is going a lot slower than I expected.
When I talk to people about nutrition I often hear things like “I could never eat that way,” “I could never go without (fill in the blank),” or “I failed on the first day so then I just went back to how I usually eat.”
Join the fun to reboot your nutrition, your mindset and your body by committing to a 5-week challenge. Earn accountability points (AND the chance for weekly prizes) by sticking to healthy eating rules, working out and making small lifestyle changes to better your health.
We are dropping some more water knowledge to you this week on how water intake (or lack of it) impacts your exercise performance.
Why is it important to drink water during exercise?
Your body is pretty darn smart.
Let’s celebrate the fall season with some savory stuffed acorn squash! I love this dish because all you have to do is pop it in the oven. With squash, sausage, and apples it is like a big o’ spoonful of fall exploding in your month.
My house loves this Red Curry Chicken! It is full of flavor, simple, and you can make it the way you like by adding any of your favorite veggies and spices. I always like to make extra for quick and delicious leftovers.
Let’s take a trip on the magic school bus (where my 90’s kids at?) and learn a bit about water and digestion.
No one will argue water is essential; go without it for a few days and you may not live to tell about it.
When trying to create a balanced healthy meal we may overthink it from time to time. How many grams of protein should I get? Should I eat fat or not have any? Are carbohydrates evil?
If you are trying to improve your overall nutrition habits my suggestion is to not focus on numbers in the beginning (you don’t need to count calories or macros).
