No matter what my agenda is after school, I'm always in the mood for a snack. Stress has a tricky way of making us crave salty, sugary, fatty foods. My solution? Don't buy them! Instead, try to fill your pantry with foods that will satiate your palate without going on a total binge of potato chips and chocolate cookies.
As an example, here is an after school snack that includes a little fat, a little salt, and a little sugar. In addition, it includes fresh items that pack in a lot of great vitamins, minerals, and protein.
sliced apples with homemade peanut butter and blueberry vanilla granola

So before you let your stress craving control you, take a deep breath and spend some time with your after school snack. I promise it will be worth it.
Combine with...GROUP EXERCISE! My gym puts on a great PUMP class that is about 45 minutes and targets arms, back, legs, and abs. Sometimes working out with a group is what you need to get yourself moving!
