have FONDUE night, tonight!

Move It Momma's HEALTHier FONDUE!!
You'll Need:
1 large yellow onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 cup light beer(hey, I said healthIER NOT healthIEST!)
4 cups 2% shredded cheese-any flavor
1/4 cup non-fat milk
Saute onion and garlic, then add beer and simmer for about 5 minutes or until onion/garlic becomes transparent. Then turn heat to low, add cheese and milk, stir until thick sauce forms. Immediately remove from heat once melted and transfer to fondue pot! That's IT! Slice up your favorite veggies, but if you've ever been to our most favorite restaurant, The Melting Pot, you'll know that apples are THE best dipped in the cheese!
I'm serious, JUST TRY IT! soooo good! I used red, delicious apples and gala!
Also, we used cauliflower, broccoli, celery and the boys dipped crackers! Ha!

Workout Tip:
I have been attempting the "6 week 6 pack" by Jillian Michaels along with my indoor cycling bike routine. So far, so good. The first day, I could barely get through it, but now that I'm on day 4, it seems to get a little easier. I have NO abdominal strength, sad but true, but I'm trying and that's what counts! RIGHT? RIGHT!!!
What workouts are working for you right now??! I'd LOVE to know!!
*I have been asked by several readers, what do I do to maintain my weight-loss after my long battle of being overweight and unhealthy? My answer is simple, EVERY DAY is a challenge. I must work at it always. If I want a day to splurge, I do it but that means the next day, I pay VERY close attention to what I am putting into my body and what I'm doing in terms of exercise. It's SO important to find that balance...although my healthy way of life happened 10 years ago, each day is a struggle. I love the way exercise makes me feel and I know that I am giving my family the healthiest Mom I can be, by sticking to that healthy way of life! It's a constant reminder of who I used to be, and who I'll never be again :) As always, any questions email me at, I'd love to hear from ya :)

I just got JM 30 day shred. I haven't tried it yet, but I'm hoping I like it.

I love the idea of fondue for dinner - I'm going to have to try your recipe out! As for workouts, I'm training for my first 5k right now. To work up to running the 3.1 miles, I run for 35 minutes on the treadmill on Mon/Wed/Fri, and strength train on Tues/Thurs. I take Sat and Sun off unless I skip a day during the week and need to make it up.
