I can’t believe we’re already on week 3 of the Harvard Pilgrim Well-Together Challenge! The month is flying by and soon the holidays will be upon us. Which means food, and lots of it. Now is the time to make those small changes that will soon become good habits.
That’s what the Well-Together Challenge is all about. Little changes that are easy to incorporate into your every day (or weekly) routine. Park farther away from the store, take the stairs, maybe switch out that sugary, syrupy coffee drink for good old straight up coffee--or tea. Half and half instead of cream? We like to make our own soda by pouring about 3/4 of a glass of soda water, then topping it off with a low sugar lemonade or juice. Or even just some sliced lime or lemons. All of these small changes add up and really make a difference when you look at the big picture!
These changes can help take you right through the holidays and into the new year, too. Wouldn’t it be great to be ahead of the game when everyone’s making New Years Resolutions? Heck yeah, it would!
I’m still doing yoga 3-4 times per week, for about 15-20 minutes. After you do it for a while and you learn some different poses, you can change it up and do a simple warm up, the poses that you love and that you know feel great, and then an easy cool down. If you get up a bit earlier, you can get it all done in the morning and feel good all day!
Be sure to also check in with Carrie at Maine Mom on the Run. She’s been trying out some of my recipes that are family oriented and pretty easy to get on the table. Which isn’t always simple, as we all know! Having a family means less time and more running around.
