Push ON!

When you doubt yourself, you are giving up before you even start.
Give yourself more than that. You are worth SO much more than that.
Don't repeat that cycle.

Don't make excuses because the only person you are hurting is yourself.
And chances are, your heart and mind have heard all of the "I'm too tired, I have too much to do, my back hurts, my legs hurt, I have a headache..." Excuses!

TODAY is the day to START a new way of life, a far better life!
and tell yourself this time will be different...dig deep and tell your mind, body and soul that YOU deserve better and more out of life.

For me, I'm DAYS away from signing up for my very, first Triathlon! OMG, it freaks me out just saying it! WOWZA! It's been something I've wanted to do since starting my journey almost 12 years ago and why not now? I'm a wife, mother, fitness lover and have really focused on a clean diet that's paying off in my workouts too! WHY NOT? We are all strong! Most of us don't even believe or realize how strong we are! GO FOR IT! Do something you never thought possible. It WILL change your life! It will change your life, the lives of your family and SO much more!

And now, how about some roasted eggplant? Yum!
Super quick and easy too!
Bake at 400 for 35 minutes. Slice eggplant and sprinkle with finely chopped garlic and olive oil and then when it's done and crispy, sprinkle with a little LF mozzerella cheese! Mmmm!

A quick snack that we all love?
Low salt Rice cake topped with natural PB, sunflower seeds and flaxseed! My boys and I eat this as an afternoon snack!

And a yummy dinner that was so good and a huge, family hit?
Panko baked chicken spaghetti squash and zucchini!
Chicken- dip in evoo, then whole wheat and Panko mix then place in Pyrex and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake at 425 for 25 minutes or until cooked through.
Spaghetti squash-cut in half, longways. Put 2 in water in Pyrex dish, pull seeds from 1/2 squash, lay in water, open side down and cover with Saran. Microwave for 8 minutes or until strings easily with fork! This way is honestly fool-proof. And then repeat with other half.
I topped with no sugar/no salt sauce from Trader Joes and served with zucchini and half a whole wheat roll ;-)
