2014 Weekly Challenge #49: Hydration!

Yep, back up on my soap box again...This weeks' challenge is all about HYDRATION.

Living where we do, it is almost impossible to forget to drink water in the summer.  Those triple digit days make it pretty easy to remember our water bottles when we leave the house, and all that sweating reminds us we need to restore our body's balance.

In the winter...well, the winter is a different story.  In the winter, it feels easier and more intuitive to grab an extra cup of coffee, or snuggle up with hot tea.  And a cold drink of water on a cold morning isn't exactly the first thing I think of grabbing.

2014 Weekly Challenge #43: A month of being THANKFUL

In this month of Thanksgiving, we at Mama Bootcamp are all focusing on what we are thankful for.

We are thankful for our health, our families, and for all the beauty in our lives.  And of course we are especially thankful to have our MOJO, and to be able to share it with each and every one of our Mamas.  In short, we are thankful for YOU!

This week, your challenge is to focus on your attitude of gratitude.   What are YOU thankful for?  Post it on Facebook to share it with the other Mamas and with your proud and THANKFUL coaches.

 

Child Support Workshops in August Part of Child Support Awareness Month

Child Support Workshops in August Part of Child Support Awareness Month

“Children are the best part of ourselves – the sum of our past and the promise of our future, the guarantee that our lives and values and dreams will flourish long after we are gone.”  With that statement, then President Bill Clinton made an official proclamation in 1995 that recognized the month of August as Child Support Awareness Month.

Child Support Awareness Month is a time to salute parents who work hard to ensure their children grow up in stable homes and look forward to a bright future.  It is also a time to help remind parents who are not always present that they are an important part of their children’s lives.

Your challenge this week is to create a new healthy habit (or break an old unhealthy one). Here's a great article on the topic:

2014 Weekly Challenge #13: Appreciate your Body (Positive Self-Talk)!

In earlier challenges, we focused on being grateful and positive instead of negative and complaining. The whole purpose of those challenges was to realize that what you say and think makes a difference in how you act and feel. Whatever you focus on is what you feed, and what you feed grows. If all you think about is what you don't have, your dissatisfaction grows; if most of what you say comes out as a complaint, you forget to see the positive.

This week's challenge builds on that idea.

I'm excited to share this recipe with you this week because it's such an awesome complete meal.  Dark leafy greens, whole grain protein, anti-oxidants, and plenty of nutrients.  Not to mention, it can be made in advance and then eaten throughout the week.  So easy!!  Feel free to improvise and add other ingredients.  Macadamia nuts can be pricy, raw or even roasted almonds could be used instead.
