It’s Over. Say Goodbye. Get out and MOVE

It’s Over. Say Goodbye. Get out and MOVE

You heard me. Put it down. You don’t need that last Milky Way. No seriously, you don’t. Will one more kill you? No. But you don’t need it. Step away. Throw it away. Like deep down in the trash so you aren’t tempted to dig it out later in a moment of weakness. Is it in there? Deep down? Good. Now get out of the house and go for a walk. Crisis adverted.

You’re welcome.

I think we can officially welcome Autumn at this point since it doesn’t appear it will hit 90 degrees again in the coming weeks. So welcome beautiful cool, crisp, air. Bright, deep, gorgeous fall colors, and every holiday that center’s around eating. We here at Mama Bootcamp welcome you with open arms. (notice I did not say open mouths?) but open arms yes, because it is the most wonderful time of the year!

WHY SQUAT?

WHY SQUAT?

This month we launch into our SQUAT challenge.

ENCOURAGEMENT AND APPRECIATION ARE CONTAGIOUS

ENCOURAGEMENT AND APPRECIATION ARE CONTAGIOUS

This week, notice the people around you (young and old).  The clerk at the grocery store.  Your next door neighbor.  A co-worker.  A barista at your favorite coffee house.  Offer a few words of encouragement or appreciation...

Yummy Avocados!

Yummy Avocados!

Avocados are a fresh, natural, wholesome part of a healthful diet. They’re irresistibly rich in flavor and avocados also provide vital nutrients and phytochemicals. Diets rich in fruits and vegetables may reduce the risk of some types of cancer and other chronic diseases.

There are 13 vitamins that the body absolutely needs: vitamins A, C, D, E, K and the B vitamins (thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, biotin, vitamin B-6, vitamin B-12 and folate). Avocados naturally contain many of these vitamins.  Here are some wonderful recipes from March's issue of Cooking Light Magazine.

One of my favorite quotes, "Don't look back. Something may be gaining on you."  Our Folsom mamas are certainly not looking back as they walk/jog and eat these hills for breakfast!  Do you remember the first time you looked at that hill, then were asked to jog up?  You were probably thinking..."can I do this?"  Yes, you can.

If you find yourself struggling with a goal or your New Year Resolution, look at the challenge not as a setback, but as an opportunity to discover who you are.  Reset, reboot, start today.  Yes, you can.

2014 Weekly Challenge #49: Hydration!

Yep, back up on my soap box again...This weeks' challenge is all about HYDRATION.

Living where we do, it is almost impossible to forget to drink water in the summer.  Those triple digit days make it pretty easy to remember our water bottles when we leave the house, and all that sweating reminds us we need to restore our body's balance.

In the winter...well, the winter is a different story.  In the winter, it feels easier and more intuitive to grab an extra cup of coffee, or snuggle up with hot tea.  And a cold drink of water on a cold morning isn't exactly the first thing I think of grabbing.

2014 Weekly Challenge #43: A month of being THANKFUL

In this month of Thanksgiving, we at Mama Bootcamp are all focusing on what we are thankful for.

We are thankful for our health, our families, and for all the beauty in our lives.  And of course we are especially thankful to have our MOJO, and to be able to share it with each and every one of our Mamas.  In short, we are thankful for YOU!

This week, your challenge is to focus on your attitude of gratitude.   What are YOU thankful for?  Post it on Facebook to share it with the other Mamas and with your proud and THANKFUL coaches.
