Sometimes you need a little ‘bad’ to get the ‘good’…
Dear clients, friends and family,
I hope you’ve been enjoying the Holiday season so far. Here’s my two quick and easy tips to keep you on the path of looking and feeling your best.
Nutrition Tip: I’m a big believer in doing whatever it takes to get you to eat your fruits and veggies – they are that important! I use this technique with my kids too. Envious friends are always asking how I get my kids to eat so many fruits and veggies. Well, sometimes, you’ve got to add some ‘bad’ to get them to crave the ‘good’. For example, cheese melted over broccoli, celery with cream cheese, salt sprinkled on cut peppers, fruit with yogurt and granola, apples with caramel, carrots and ranch dip etc. Try this approach and watch your fruit and veggie intake increase dramatically!
Exercise Tip: Invest in the right gear. If it’s cold and rainy, it doesn’t matter if you’ve got the right clothing that keeps you dry and warm. You never want the weather to get you out of your routine – especially in the northwest when the weather is so unpredictable. Fortunately, there’s lots of great specials right now. Plus you can always put your needs on your Holiday Wish-list!
Yours in Health and Fitness,
