MORNING MOTIVATION: Remember that growth is not always linear. Progress doesn’t necessarily demand that you have a straight ascent toward perfection. Sometimes a leap forward is followed by a few steps back, sometimes we hit a peak and then fall into a valley. If you find yourself doing the cha cha towards your health and fitness goals, don’t beat yourself up! Just keep cha cha’ing along and you’ll get there.

MORNING MOTIVATION: This woman wants to be strong and healthy. I do it for myself and my family. My goal is to be around a long time for my kids and husband and to be able to enjoy those years with them in a healthy body. I also want to feel good on the inside as well as the outside.

MOVE OF THE WEEK: PLANK (in honor of our 30 Day Plank Challenge)

Sometimes the simplest of movements result in the greatest gains to your fitness.  This is certainly the case with planks. A plank may look easy at first, but this is deceiving. Holding a proper plank position takes strength and endurance in your abs, back, and quads.

The plank is one of the most effective exercises for core conditioning, as it engages multiple muscle groups simultaneously.  Not only does it give you a killer core, but it also works your glutes and hamstrings, supports proper posture, reduces back-pain, and improves flexibility and balance.

Visit my FB page for detailed instructions on how to do a proper plank, as well as for modifications.

Never liked cauliflower until I had it roasted. Now I think it’s better than candy. I’ve been known to down a whole head of roasted cauliflower all by myself. Cauliflower is a nutritious, fiber-rich veggie that is very versatile in a low-carb, high-fiber diet. It is high in anti-oxidants, such as vitamin C, manganese and carotenoids. It also contains glucosinolates and thiocyanates, which help increase the liver’s ability to neutralize potentially toxic substances.  In addition to being a cancer-fighting veggie, it also has anti-inflammatory properties due to it’s high vitamin K and omega-3 fatty acids content. We love roasting cauliflower with just a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper.  Easy and tasty! Cauliflower is also great as a low-carb version of mashed “potatoes”. Check out these other creative ways to incorporate cauliflower into a healthy diet.

Eating healthfully doesn’t have to be tasteless or boring.  Lower the fat and increase the protein in chicken or tuna salad by skipping the mayo and subbing in either greek yogurt or cottage cheese.  My personal preference is the cottage cheese substitution b/c it has slightly more protein, half the carbs, and a third of the sugar than Greek yogurt.  I also prefer the way it makes the chicken or tuna salad taste, since it’s less tart than yogurt.  If you think the texture will bother you, opt for the Greek yogurt. Either way, you can’t go wrong with this healthy spin.  If you are reducing your carbs, try putting it over a salad rather than eating it as a sandwich.

Recipe:  canned chicken breast, mixed with fat free cottage cheese, chopped Thai lime almonds, dried cranberries, pickles and/or banana peppers, sriracha and black pepper to taste.
