Take the 30 day food challenge!


So a friend of mine had said to me that the hardest part of becoming healthy was thinking of healthy things to eat.
Its so easy when your so used to the same things and same old routine. Its hard to crack and think “outside the box”
This Month I’m going to be sharing some recipes for different meals that are healthy AND tasty.
Everyday I will post what I’m doing and cooking for myself to become a healthier happier person. Now I work 6 days a week so If I can cook all these items (and post them) there is no excuse for you to cop out and head to Wendy’s. I challenge you to follow with me and try these recipes out. they are easy and practical.

You CAN do it!

Helpful tip for this challenge came on Day 8
and day 13

DAY 1- Eat an exotic fruit

DAY 1
Try an exotic fruit.

Ok so I was supposed to eat an exotic fruit yesterday…..all the grocery stores had nothing! I had seen star fruit and dragon fruit before but there was no trace of these items. Off I go to compete day 2 (see above) and finish day 1….stay tuned on my adventure for fruit….

So here you have it…16 days late!
Its a lemon melon!

 

The Weight Is Over!………….Finally!

I am extremely passionate about fitness and health & wellness.
I’m a dance teacher (among many diff. jobs) and have my BCRPA certification in group fitness. Over these past few years I have been reading more and more about safe training for different types of fitness and nutrition. The more I read the more I saw ad’s and claims such as “flat abs in 6 days no exercise required” or “shed fat by cutting carbs”. A bit of  schooling and common sense had me question these claims. Is this true? Can this happen? How? This cannot be possible!
The more I read the more I believe there is a simple solution to looking and feeling your best……

CONSISTENTLY Eat Clean and Exercise.

That’s it!
So simple we overlook it.

No one EVER should cut out any food group. Eat the amount of calories you need to maintain or achieve your goals and exercise everyday.

Now I’m sure your thinking ya right whatever who has time for that?
I bet you that with a little time management (which ill give you pointers) you can eat clean (and taste yummy) and exercise everyday, even with kids!

So I challenge you to follow and join me in my journey to become healthier and build a lifestyle that works!

I will post exercises for both the gym goers and the stay at homers. Ill give you tips for time management so you can maintain. I will also post some yummy clean recipes for you to try.
So stay tuned as I will post as often as possible. I will post about the challenges and triumphs just to keep it interesting.
