I stumbled upon this WONDERFUL & HELPFUL website. It breaks down moves targeted towards certain body parts. For example, if you need to work on your ankles, there is a page of exercises for that. If you need to work on your hip flexors, there is a page for that as well.

Here is the link:

You KNOW I do. The Team Beachbody Blog has really helped inspire me to snack healthy. Since I am on the go 90% of the day, it is important to keep my nutrition in check. It is SO easy to grab a bag of chips, a candy bar, or a cookie but if you disciple yourself and prep your food and snacks for the week, you won’t have a problem reaching for a healthy and tasty snack. 🙂
