Healthy Through The Holidays

Tuesday, November 17, 2009

Mama M & Keely have come up with a wonderful way for all of us to stay healthy during the holiday season.Each week we will have exercise goals and healthy eating tips. We will log our exercise hours and promise to eat healthy.

We have completed two full weeks of commitment to being "Healthy"


We bumped up the cardio goal last week to 170 minutes...did you meet it? Exceed it? Coulda done better?
I Jumped rope for a total of 20 minutes each Day " 140 minutes"
I played on the trampoline again this week with my children, three days for a total of 120 minutes.
How about the eating? Snacking less? Or "snacking smart"?
"snacking smart"
How's the water consumption going?
Going well
Have you been trying the recommended Pilates exercises?
Sadly I have to say I didn't. I will try again this week. "Thinking positive"

Snack idea- Gluten Free

Cottage Cheese Veggie Dip

Stir lemon pepper into cottage cheese for a quick and healthy vegetable dip. We normally use carrots and snow peas, but any crunchy vegetables you have on hand will do.

  • 1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon pepper
  • 1/2 cup each baby carrots and snow (or snap) peas
