It’s Week 5 of 8 of the 8-week Summer Challenge by @lornavanderhaeghehealth . We’re over halfway there!
With the beautiful summertime weather, there are endless opportunities to exercise.
- Conduct ‘walking meetings’ by walking outside while discussing the day ahead.
- Throw in a wall-sit at lunch to activate your leg muscles.
- Take the stairs instead of the elevator!
TAKING THE KIDS TO THE PARK?
- Join in on the fun! Play soccer, skipping rope, or even tossing a ball around can be a great way to combine family time and exercise.
Dandelion Foods’ own nutritionist, Morgan, has accepted the 8-week Summer Challenge and is providing updates on how she’s finding it. Here’s her notes from Week 2. And if you missed Week 1, you can find them here. You can also follow her on this page or on Instagram or Facebook.
I continued to enjoy my daily walks as well as trying to fit in as many opportunities to standup paddle board (SUP) as I could. SUP is is a new interest of mine, and one that I share with my husband. I enjoy being on the water; the exercise that we get; as well as being able to enjoy our time together in the fresh air. We just spent the weekend in Algonquin Park doing SUP and had a blast!
