12 Healthy Habits: March and April

Hi nuggets.

I hope you have been keeping up with your 12HH better than I have been updating you!

So far you are now:

 Eating 3 servings of fruits and veggies each day
(I've been churning through apples like whoa.  Since they count as 2 servings, they're my go-to when I'm in a pinch)

Exercising for 30 minutes- 3 times a week.
I've actually really stepped up my game here.
I started going to Pure Barre in Hyde Park and now I go at least 4 times a week.
It's an hour long class, so I get 4 hours as opposed to the goal of 1.5.
I promise, I'll post about Pure Barre asap.
It is AMAZING.

So now, you need the deets on March and April.
I'm late on March, but I've been doing it so its kewl.
Right?

Here goes:


March:
Get Cooking!
You should cook 3 more meals a week than you do now.
Example:
Breakfast:  Ditch McD's and make your own breakfast sammie.

Easy one:
Keep tortillas on hand.
Scramble an egg.
Put it on the tortilla with some salsa, (a little) cheese, and a touch of fresh cilantro.
Wrap it up and go!  Boom, you cooked!

Another idea:
Instead of lounging around watching reruns of project runway on Sundays (and don't even try to lie!  I know you do!), get into your kitchen a make a huge batch of soup.

Eat some, freeze the rest for a day when you're feeling lazy.
Bonus: Make a veggie soup and you will have a quick way to get a serving of veggies down the road.
(I'll post my veggie soup recipe soon.  I'll make some tonight, okay?)

April:
Go for Whole Grains
Eat 3 more servings of whole grains a day.

I'll be honest.
I'm struggling.

When I get into a groove I'll let you know my tips.



Any of you eat a ton of whole grains and have some suggestions?

Are you keeping up with your 12HH??  It's tough, but worth it in the end!

Remember:
You can find all the info and tips on the website:

Here's to our healthiest year ever.

Go get 'em, Tiger.
