Yummy Yummy Almond Milk!

I just love, LOVE almonds! Especially when they are chocolate covered-- but we aren't thinking about that right now, are we:)

I recently had heard about Almond Milk so I thought, why not give it a try?-- and you know what-- I LOVED IT! It tastes really good-- I got the Vanilla.

I totally recommend you give it a try- and here are just some of the health benefits:

1. It contains no cholesterol or lactose.

2. It is enriched with vitamins!

- Vitamin A- necessary for maintenance of normal development of skin and visual acuity.
Also associated with normal development and growth.

- Vitamin B- necessary for normal digestion of carbohydrates and helps muscular tissues.
as well as other vitamins in the vitamin B complex.

- Vitamin E- helps the blood cells and tissues, decreases the risk for some cancers,
Heart disease and cataracts.

3. Contains proteins for healthy muscles, copper,and magnesium too.

4. It is also used as a dietary fiber.

5. Rich in Arginine and low in Lysine which helps reduce the risk of coronary diseases.

AND the results from drinking Almond Milk on a daily basis is softer skin, helps heal dry itchy skin and helps keep your hair shiny and less oily.

And what part of that do you not like?!

So, next time you are in the store, pick some up and let me know what you think!!

YOU have the POWER!!!

One of my favorite things to give my girls at the end of a workout is a power move- that they only have to do 2-3 of! I do this to show them that ANYTHING is possible and you can for sure do at least 1 and most likely more:) Once they can do it- I then start adding the different power moves into their workout making it ever more challenging. My girls NEVER do the same workout twice!:) It is all about keeping your body on its toes--- so here is your first power move to try!

Just TRY it! That is all I'm asking!:)

Roll to pop out push-up

NOW- how do you feel?! It was FUN, huh?? Feel like a kid again:)

Just 15 min!

Seriously-- it is not hard to fit a 15 min. exercise routine into your day-- and if it IS- then you are too busy-- if you can't take 15 min. for yourself! So- just DO IT!:)

In just 15 min. your energy will spike up, you will feel happier, and then we will have world peace... ok- not the last one, but maybe if more people exercised. Haha!

True - the recommended exercise to get per day is between 30-45 min. - but ya gotta start somewhere AND 15 min. is better then nothing-- and before you know it- maybe you will find yourself taking "2" 15 min. exercise breaks for yourself:)

In case you can't figure out what to do- I have created a pretty sweet video just for YOU!
(pause my music down on the right to hear)

15 minutes of FUN blueprint:

60 jumps with speed rope
50 prisoner lunges
60 high knees with speed rope
50 prisoner squats
60 single leg hops on left
25 single leg lunge jumps - left
60 single leg hops on right
25 single leg hops on left
60 jumps with speed rope
20 push - ups
60 side to side jumps with speed rope
50 flutter kicks

AND continue til your 15 min. timer goes off!

Enjoy-- and HAPPY 15 min!
