If you need a laugh today, scroll to the bottom for Grey’s reaction to his very first rollercoaster. There have been a lot of firsts this trip, and there is nothing like seeing your child light up with a sparkle you haven’t yet seen before, and a new core childhood memory unlocked. What a gift 🥹. Today’s Scrolls has a little shimmer for all of us – a scrumptious (and healthy!) fruit dip, 3 movement motivators if you need a swing in the right direction, and mind-blowing links we loved this week to top it off (including how to save a life). Welcome – we’re so glad you’re here!

Meals

Oh MY is this dip delicious. If you’re looking for a fun fruit dip with a twist to bring to your next bbq, might we suggest this one? It’s only 5 ingredients, a healthy serving of protein to balance your blood sugar, and you can dip anything from pretzels, fruit, graham crackers – whatever you fancy!

Movement

3 movement motivators for the week ahead!

Research Says It’s Fine to ‘Catch Up’ on Exercise Over the Weekend—But Should You?

Exercise ‘Snacking’ Is the Best Way to Workout if You Have 10 Minutes or Less (I’ve been doing this during our travel and 10/10 recommend. It’s also a great mental health jolt when you need a pick-me-up!)

‘I’m a Spinal Surgeon, and Here’s Why I Try To Hold a Plank for 2 Minutes Every Day’ ((this is a goal I’m working toward – I’ve read so much about planking = longevity!))

We surprised Grey with a trip to Legoland – his very first rollercoaster! His face was worth all of the shenanigans that come with visiting a theme park 🫣😅 (and look at the juxtaposition of Jon in the back Bahahaha). We hope you have a week filled with adventure, love and lots of JOY!
