October Plank-Touch Challenge

Happy October! The month of pumpkins, apple picking, boots, and plank-touches. What’s a plank-touch, you ask? Great question! It’s the perfect exercise to engage your entire core. To perform a plank touch, get in a plank position with hands on ground, shoulder-width apart and legs straight, wider than hip-width apart. While balancing and keeping hips even, (which will fire up your abs) touch one shoulder with opposite hand. Put that hand back down on the ground and repeat on the other side. Alternate sides while keeping core stable. You may keep your knees on the ground if you cannot stay balanced/stable and rest on knees for 10 seconds between sets (beginning on the 19th.) This one move will strengthen your shoulders, arms, abs, back, chest, glutes, and more, so commit to plank-touching ’til Halloween. Just save, print, or pin the image below and take on the challenge!

Wedding Highlights

I’m so excited to share some highlights from the best day of my life with you! On October 4th, 2014, I married the love of my life, the guy who introduced me to the Hamptons, and my other half…my *husband*! Our wedding day just so happened to be exactly five years (to the day!) that we met. What an amazing five years it has been and I can’t wait for the next five!

View More: http://jennymoloney.pass.us/sabatinoWedding highlights:
1. My MOB (mother of the bride) & FOB (father of the bride.) I couldn’t have imagined or executed a better wedding, beginning to end, and I owe that to my amazing parents MOB & FOB! My mom doubled as my wedding planner/organizer/queen of spreadsheets/idea executor/stress diminisher. She made my dream wedding come true when I couldn’t even really visualize what that was. I owe my wedding planner, aka my amazing mother, lots of thanks for years and years to come. Plus, she looked like a rock star on the big day too!

10712775_904298870773_1508989522148051660_nMy dad kept me cool, calm, and collected during those key moments, as if it was just the two of us in the room. One of the most special moments in a girl’s life is walking down the aisle and dancing with her father at her wedding. I had dreamed about these moments since the first time I saw Father of The Bride and I will remember them forever and always. I can’t stop listening to the song we danced to (Walk With You by Edwin McCain) and it takes me back to that day and a lifetime of memories.

10408817_594935880618586_1879594273773841636_n2. The guy. I have no idea how I got so lucky as to meet my *husband* but I do know that fate played a serious role. We met randomly at a bar in NYC while I was visiting my friend in grad school and he was out with friends. Positive that it would be my last trip to NYC for a long while, (not such a city girl here) I told my *future husband* that I would never see him again. His response: “never say never.” Lesson learned. Although, at the time, it seemed we were just two people at the wrong place at the wrong time, I’ve never been so wrong. Although I couldn’t have dreamed of a better life as we live today, I would have never imagined it as is. Fate is real, folks, you better believe it.

View More: http://jennymoloney.pass.us/sabatino3. The welcome. From the moment my wedding planner (mom) and I began planning the big day over a year ago, we started brainstorming the perfect way to welcome our guests. I wanted it to stand out as original, personal, and from the heart. It took months to put together the perfect collection of goodies that would embrace, please, surprise, and satisfy our wedding guests upon their arrival. We personally packaged gift boxes with a welcome letter (including engagment photos from Kate Petrone Photography and Jenny Moloney Photography) and the following gifts we described as “a few of our favorite things, tastes of our favorite places, and bits and pieces of where we call home:”  Tate’s chocolate chip cookies, (yum!) a PB&J Bar made by Lisa Ann’s Desserts, (an upgraded version of our favorite sandwich – a must try!) Wolffer’s white wine cider, Cape Cod Potato Chips and a lobster lollipop for some Boston flair, Hershey kisses, and a green apple (our favorite healthy snack.)

FullSizeRender(1)4. The company. The two common bits of advice we got heading into our wedding were that it’s over in the blink of an eye, so be sure to soak it all in and the realization of loved ones from all walks of life, near and far, young and old, all in the same room to celebrate your marriage. So, so amazing.

FullSizeRender(2)5. The scheme and theme. To be honest, I always pictured myself getting married during the summer months, outside, near the water. Well, things change and I couldn’t have imagined a better day (the clouds and drizzle didn’t put a damper on anything!) As soon as we decided on our wedding date, autumn in New England opened up such fun possibility. From the amazing poppy colored flowers to the pumpkin place settings, candy apples and gingerbread whoopie pies, the taste of fall, warmth of the season, and essence of love radiated throughout the night.

FullSizeRender_16. The ceremony. Since the very first wedding I remember attending almost 20 years ago, I’ve always gotten nervous right before the ceremony. I’d only imagined that the pit in my stomach would double when it was my time to walk down the aisle. But, guess what…I really wasn’t nervous for my own wedding. I was content, ready, and full of excitement. I couldn’t wait to walk arm-in-arm down the aisle with my father. I couldn’t wait to stand there with my *husband to-be* and say our I do’s. As soon as our priest (who is also a family friend) began to speak, I fully relaxed and a smile appeared on my face that lasted the entire ceremony…actually, the entire weekend. The fact that the ceremony included personal stories, humor, and lots of smiles made it that much more special.

1959281_904290547453_7805848216804552830_n7. The dress. I fell in love with that dress the moment I saw it and I knew it was the one. I said yes to the dress and never looked back. Now, if only I could wear it more often…!

October Tricep Toner Challenge

October calls for trick-or-treating…and tricep toning! Here’s a little challenge to keep your motivation high. With a healthy attitude, you’ll be able to crush those sugar cravings, indulge moderately throughout the holidays, and keep right on toning!

To do a tricep push-up, get into a four-arm plank with arms extended, hands about six inches apart inside shoulders. Start on your knees until you feel strong. Lower chest towards floor by bending elbows straight back next to your sides, keeping your back straight. Push back up until arms are almost straight and repeat.

Pumpkin Pie Parfait

Think PINK This October

Happy October! One Healthy Hamptons is going PINK for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Did you know that 1 in 8 women are diagnosed with breast cancer? Sadly, we all know someone, at least one person, who has suffered with breast cancer. So, what can WE do?? Until there is a cure, we can spread awareness and take preventative measures against known causes. Make it your October goal to make some healthy changes to decrease your odds while increasing your health. These breast cancer prevention tips promote health in general, they’re changes everyone should follow, whether you think you’re at risk or not. Are you with us?? BC

The obvious? DON’T SMOKE! I don’t know why anyone in this day and age would pay $$ to get cancer and stink. Please just don’t do it.

Exercise! Get moving! Whatever workout you like, do it! Getting your heart pumping increases good estrogen while decreasing the bad. It also strengthens our immune system and aids in maintaining a healthy weight, which is a huge factor in cancer cell growth.

Decompress. Today. Right now. Make YOU a priority and do something to destress everyday. Even if it’s just deep breathing for five minutes or a 15 minute nap. Stress inhibits the immune system, so decompress and rest up! Doctors orders!

Do a little yoga. Make it a priority to get to a class or practice at home. Yoga not only reduces stress, it also balances hormones, which play a huge role in cancer development.

Above all else is FOOD! Nutrition is a SUPER important factor when fighting cancer of any kind and it’s even more important for prevention. According to breastcancer.org, diet is partly responsible for between 30-40% of all cancers. Eat a healthy diet. Get your antioxidants, and limit sugar (cancer’s best friend.) That means more vegetables, fruits, and healthy fats in their purest form. Less processed crap. Nutrient-dense foods, especially plant-based, increase our alkalinity, which makes it a whole lot less pleasant for cancer cells to grow inside of us.

Are you sensing a pattern here? These are all no brainers, all things I preach weekly. Daily. Hourly. Yes, balance is important and we’re not all perfect. We’re not going to eat healthy, work out, meditate, avoid sugar, do yoga, and get fresh air every single day. But, do your best. It’s a new month and a new chance to make small changes towards a healthier you.

If you like the sound of that but aren’t sure where to start, email kiley@onehealthyhamptons.com today. Our fall cleanse includes step-by-step tactics, recipes, and tips to conquer each and every one of these cancer-busting strategies. Until then, think pink and H A P P Y  O C T O B E R !

Step Right Into Fall

Road Through ForestIf you’ve heard it once, you’ve heard it a hundred times: summer’s over, folks! Luckily, it’s not the end of the world. We’ll get to enjoy the fall weather (and for locals, the beach isn’t going anywhere!) as it turns from warm to crisp to (eek!) chilly. With the change in season, comes a pretty sudden shift back into a routine. While summer is a time to let loose a little bit, school and work schedules get us right back on track for September, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. For me, I’m a sucker for routine. It just makes me feel grounded to stick to a schedule, while enjoying what fall has to offer of course.

Who doesn’t get excited for apple picking, pumpkin spice everything, sweaters, fall hikes, and boots?! Fall is a fun season, so take advantage! Pick the apples, order the pumpkin spice, or, even better, make some home-made pumpkin recipes, light a scented candle, hike more, wear cozy sweaters, carve a jack-o-lantern, and enjoy! Here are a few of my top tips for stepping (not falling!) right into fall!

apples on a burlap bag1. An apple a day! Utilize that in-season produce as much as possible. Some local fall bests (other than the obvious apples and pumpkins) include kale, brussels sprouts, cranberries, escarole, grapes, celery, pea pods, raddichio, and kohlrabi. Pick it, cook with it, eat it.

If you have a sweet tooth like me, opt for an apple. They’re nature’s candy and super fresh this time of year, especially if you pick your own! One of my favorite afternoon snacks is as simple as it is healthy (are you surprised?) Just cut an apple into bit-sized pieces. Sprinkle with cinnamon and a little Stevia (optional) and microwave for three minutes. Let cool and you have a delicious, warm, and comforting snack. Add oats, nuts, some crunchy cereal, nut butter, (or cooked apple!) for some sustenance or to make a healthy dessert (or breakfast!)

2. It’s not winter yet! Take advantage of fall weather by exercising outdoors. Fall is the perfect season for outdoor running, bike riding, hiking, and even some extended paddle boarding on warmer days. No one can argue that a fall run through the woods with the colorful foliage beats the treadmill any day. Our bodies still need that Vitamin D from the sun, so try a new outdoor activity and enjoy the great outdoors while you move!

3. Plan and pack! Packing your own lunch is cost-efficient and allows for far more control over what you eat during the day. Choose a few simple staples you know you’ll enjoy and make them. Salads, sandwiches, wraps, parfaits, soups, etc. With a busy routine, food prep is KEY. Plan lunches and/or dinners for the week and get your grocery shopping done on the weekends. Make big salads and divide them into containers for each day of the week. Cook in bulk and freeze or pack leftovers for lunch. Don’t forget to pack healthy snacks like yogurt, veggies, hummus, fruit, nuts, or your own trail mix and be sure to bring a water bottle to stay hydrated!

mid section view of a woman cutting vegetablesTo save time in the morning, you can even prepare breakfast the night before. One of my favorites is overnight oats. Just soak 1/3 cup of rolled oats (uncooked) in 1/2 cup of almond milk. Stir in a tablespoon of chia seeds, cinnamon, and vanilla extract.. Refrigerate overnight and mixture will be thick and ready for you to add your favorite ‘toppings’ and devour in the morning, hot or cold. Whatever you choose, having healthy meals on-hand will save time, money, and rule out those last-minute not-so-good choices.
