Heart health is super important to me. I want to live by example, to teach my kids how to care for their bodies so they can live long, healthy lives. Eating right and exercising is not about looks for me. It is about health, energy, and mental clarity.
When I eat right and stay active, I just feel better! And that makes sense, because when I take care of my body, it takes care of me.
Poor Lucy has been so susceptible to all the colds this season, so I can’t take her to my gym’s daycare. To make up for that, I am finding ways to work out at home. One word: DANCE! Turn on my Spotify channel, and start dancing my heart out! I add some Burpees, push ups, and kick boxing moves to increase the difficulty.
Lucy, David, and Lizzie all love our night time dance parties. I try to do a few songs every day. Not only does it keep my heart pumping, but our laughter makes me just feel better, happier!
I am also working on menu planning – I plan out healthy meals from whole foods. (Thank you Pinterest – my “Eat To Live” board is where I keep all my recipes).
There are always days that I run more than I am at home…mostly ballet day. So when I stock my shelves with ready-made foods, I make sure they are low-sodium and made with real ingredients. Campbell’s is all that and very delicious. Such a relief that I don’t have to worry about what they are eating on days like this!
