Samara says,

  1. Dedicating a small amount of time each day to exercise is one of the best things you can do for yourself both mentally and physically.
  1. If you can’t make time to do the challenge exercises – break out the bikes, the hula hoops, skipping ropes, scooters or find a field and kick a soccer ball around with the kids.  Let’s find no excuse to fall off the wagon this week with exercise!
  1. Pack healthy snacks so you don’t buy junk.
