All of the people you haven't told you love lately, tell them, and live your days like you mean it. ~ Hal Sutton Physical Health Eat Well It's holiday time! This means that we will be surrounded by food maybe more often than we normally are. How to stop the mindless or stress-induced eating? https://www.webmd.com/balance/stress-management/ss/slideshow-stop-emotional-eating The thing about nutrition is that there are so many myths out there -- some of them oft-repeated -- and it can be hard to know what is true. https://www.active.com/food-and-nutrition/articles/the-10-nutrition-myths-you-need-to-stop-believing Be Active How's your balance? Balance training is important for everyone, not just athletes. https://www.verywellfit.com/exercises-for-better-balance-3498203 Let's move! First a 5 minute EMOM, then a fast-paced HIIT, finishing with a 5 minute AMRAP. Ready? Start your music! http://www.intervaltimer.com/timers/8091883 Your EMOM (every minute on the minute) will be: 10 x squat thrusts 10 x low side shuffle (sitting low and staying low, shuffle three to the right and then back to the left three. Each way counts as 1). Repeat the moves at the top of the minute for 5 minutes. The timer will move on to the AMRAP portion. You know all of the moves. Your AMRAP (as many reps as possible) consists of the following moves: -4 rounds of 1 star jump + Narrow squat and tap your foot front, side and back. You'll do a star jump between each leg, so a total of 4 star jumps. -16 twisting mountain climbers (8 each side) -8 leg drop + toe touch crunches Move through the three moves as many rounds as you can in the 5 minutes.

Another part is WHEN you ask it. https://www.purewow.com/family/phrases-not-to-say-to-kids Posts from HealthyExpatParent.com/Facebook Already started turkey prep. You?
