This holiday season I'm armed with healthy tools to keep me accountable, active and eating veggies. T'appy Holidays with T-Tapp Trainer Lani Muelrath is a T-Tapper's dream. Lani created a spreadsheet that gives a weekly outline with some healthy habits including daily exercise, body brushing, eating 7 servings of veggies and having a "gusto" breakfast. For each activity that you complete you get a certain amount of points. At the end of the week you tally up your points and see where you fall: Goddess, Diva, Muse or Flirt. We all want to be Goddesses!!!
This is a wonderful way to keep up with your healthy habits and stay on track with a fitness plan during the busiest time of year! Tappy Holidays started on Sunday, November 7th. I technically started on Monday because I was feeling under the weather this weekend and needed to get a newsletter done for work.
Monday, November 8th
So far so good! Yesterday I got in 6 servings of veggies and my body brushing. Skipped a gusto brekkie and had a cup of hot coffee (it's cold in Florida!) with cream and raw sugar, plus an organic golden delicious apple once I got to the office. I was starving by lunch and devoured 2.5 cups of raw salad (romaine, spinach, onion, carrots, cilantro) and 1 cup of homemade pumpkin soup. That's 5 servings of veggies at lunch alone! For dinner I made a fresh organic beef chili packed with veggies (zucchini, green pepper, onion, garlic, and kidney beans). Almost 7 servings, but one short due to skipping brekkie... the most important meal of the day!
No exercise though...very busy day and I didn't make the time for it. No excuses.
Tuesday, November 9th
I made sure to get in my veggies... 1.5 cups of chopped zucchini, onion and baby bellas accompanied my 2 scrambled eggs with BVI Seasoning and Garlic Pepper. That's 3 servings of veggies! For lunch I ate another bowl of my pumpkin soup, which accounted for another 2 servings. And dinner was more of my beef chili. I did sneak in a few all-natural gummy bears.
Workout: Basic Workout Plus + floor work (OIP/HF, 15 Crunches, AL, PT, DD) for a 30 minute "free choice" routine. And got my body brushing in too!
Will keep you posted on my T'appy Holidays progress each week in a wrap-up blog. For now I'm off to get in more veggies... staying stocked up on produce is KEY!
