Just because it is cold outside, doesn’t mean outdoor activities have to come to a seasonal stop. Exercising in the cold burns additional calories and produces more endorphins in the extra effort to keep your body warm. Not only are there metabolic perks, but exposing your body to natural light and fresh air is rejuvenating.
Did you know that there are just 80 calories and no fats in just one cup of blueberries? They are packed full of vitamin C, getting 14mg per serving. A handful of blueberries can help you meet your daily fiber requirements. They also have manganese which plays an important role in bone development and in converting the proteins, carbohydrates and fats in food into energy. Blueberries are also near the top when it comes to antioxidants. What more could you want in a food that taste so good? Yummy!
Today is different, and is yours to live with purpose, discipline, enthusiasm and joy. Today is different, and you can make it the best one yet. Remember this: Imagination + Determination = Transformation ;-)

Yup, I ate too much. I tried my hardest NOT too, but I fell off the good eatin' wagon and it ran me over. So today, I got my butt on the stationary bike and the treadmill to warm up before lifting weights. It's a new day. To whoever is reading this blog, do the same. Get back into your routine. Your body will thank you for it.

I am sure everyone has heard of this rule- 80% of your fat loss is nutrition, 20% is exercise. I have even read that 80% is nutrition, 10% is exercise and 10% is genetics. Either way the nutrition, the fuel you put into your body, tremendously impacts what you look and feel like.
There are many possibilities for leftover Turkey from Thanksgiving dinner. This one is one of my favorites--its quick, easy, and full of flavor. In a crockpot thow in Turkey, some chicken broth (not too much), and some fresh made salsa (diced tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, peppers, chili pepper, cayenne pepper & cracked black pepper. Let sit on medium heat for a few hours. Enjoy by itself or in a sandwhich!
This isn't any old Monday... It's Cyber Monday. Aka the Monday after Thanksgiving! We've all been shopping, eating and watching football games. It was a lot of fun, but now we all need a good workout...and it always helps to have a positive attitude going into our work week! How about an intention for the day... I love this:"Work Hard, Stay Humble"Hope you make time to hit the gym today. I know I will! And when you're there, maybe you could do or say something kind to another person. That's my plan! Have a GREAT day.
Glad to say my grandson's surgery went well! No sleep for 48 hours but well worth it. Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Hopefully everyone will be back on track and start eating healthy. Some of my clients ask what type of diet works best. I tell them to just focus on eating healthy and there is no diet that works. It is a lifestyle change. You have to look at things differently. Try to think of exercise as an everyday occurance like brushing your teeth.
