Monday is the Best Day!


Hello Monday!
A lot of people ask me why do I like Mondays? Don’t get me wrong I love my weekends and I do believe they go to fast, but that is no reason to hate Monday, in my mind.

I think of Monday as my fresh start to the week. It sets the tone, so if I start off indulging in healthy behaviors, more than likely I will maintain those behaviors throughout the week.

 

My Happy Mondays

What makes my Mondays so happy?

 

  • First things first, I never miss a Monday workout!

NeverMissMonday

  • Monday Writing Prompt – The one-day of the week that I am determined to write (blog post, lesson, article…) is on Mondays!

  • I am a Kids Cook Monday ambassador and I just became a Move It Monday ambassador! Move It Monday is an international campaign encouraging people of all fitness levels to get moving each week starting on Mondays!  Cooking with my kids and eating as a family is what started GoodFoodMama and being physically active and helping others become physically active is the foundation of my profession (personal trainer, Spin instructor and my education Kinesiology and Public Health)! I live by this stuff!

Embrace Monday and have an awesome week!

hello Everyone and hello Monday…

This week is all about Being Healthy All Week – starting with Mondays! Also March is National Nutrition Month a dedicated month that focuses on the importance of making informed food choices and developing healthy eating and physical activity habits. The theme for 2015 is “Bite into a Healthy Lifestyle,” so this month I will be posting and tweeting a bit more aggressively about creating a healthy lifestyle!

hello Monday…Staying Focused

hello Everyone and hello Monday…Staying Focused! This week that means doing what I said I would do and finding ways to keep my cool while cooking with my kids 🙂

Staying Focused

Affirmation: Rather than dwelling on what I don’t want, I will clearly articulate what I do want.

Who’s Cookin’ With Kids?

I am staying focused this week and finally sitting down to begin work on my health campaign “Who’s Cookin’ With Kids!” It is at the beginning stages, but I have great expectations for it and will share more as it develops.

And more…I reserved my “Health Equity: Thinking Outside The Box” blog so I must also stay focused and start developing that. Busy, busy!

Homemade

Cooking at home and cooking with my kids are two of my favorite Monday thru Friday things to do! I am always looking for ways to make this happen with ease. Here are a few things worth checking out this week that might help:

I use quite a few of these tips… Ideas for a Cooking With Kids, Without Going Insane 

And these too… Cooking With Kids from kidshealth.org

May great things happen today and everyday thereafter!

Until next Monday…
