11th Day of Fitness and Healthy Travel Snack Ideas

Welcome to the 11th Day of Fitness!  On the 11th Day of Fitness, the Coalition gave to me:
11 raise the roofs
10 knee lifts
9 side stretches
8 jogs in place
7 jabs/punches
6 front kicks
5 jumping ropes (imaginary)
4 muscle poses
3 hula hoops
2 scissors (feet apart then cross in front, feet apart then cross in back)
and a Partridge in a Yoga Tree-hold a yoga pose

Come back tomorrow for our final day of fitness!  Are you ready?

Traveling over the Holidays?  Be prepared for anything-delays in airports, traffic jams, etc. by packing your own HEALTHY snacks!
-Water--if flying, you’ll have to buy after passing through security.  Remember to stay hydrated when flying as dehydration can occur and cause or increase hunger, jet lag, and fatigue.
-Cereal--easy to transport, easy to eat on the go.
-Beef Jerky--the good news is that jerky is low in carbs and high in protein, however the bad news is that it is high in sodium, so be careful in choosing your jerky.
-Fruits and Vegetable Sticks--apples, pears, and grapes are more “durable” and almost any other fruit can be stored in a container.
-Energy Bars--these can be high in calories and fat, but compared to airport restaurants or fast food restaurants that are high in calories and fat, and dripping with grease, energy bars are generally better for you.
-Soy Crisps/Quaker Quakes--these are good as they can satisfy either sweet or salty cravings.
-Make your own mix--use ingredients like peanuts, raisins, dried fruits, cheerios/other cereals, chocolate chips, pretzels, mini-marshmallows and whatever else appeals to you.
-Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches
-Peanut Butter and Crackers
