What is My*inner*active? It’s a lifestyle adjustment of small changes that influence the next decisions in your life. It becomes who you are NOT what you do. But it always begins with that first decision! It started with a conviction deep down inside and becomes the foundation of everything you do.

Fat Burning Nutrition

IMG_7805.JPG

It’s no secret that while exercise does a body GREAT, what happens to your body, really happens in the kitchen. During this challenge, I’ll be sharing some of my favorite fat burning, muscle shaping, great tasting recipes from trusted resources like Clean Eating Magazine, The Abs Diet, Mediterranean Diet as well as simple healthy food swaps.

Preparation and planning are the key to making sure you stick with eating healthy even with a busy schedule. I have 3 kids and a busy husband along with my own busy schedule so preparing our family’s meals is of dire importance. Everything from breakfast to afterschool snacks, pre-sports/activity snacks and dinner; it’s all about keeping me AND my family eating healthy. So there is NEVER a “Mommy’s Food” section of the pantry then everybody else eats whatever. That sets up an attitude of either you care more about your health than your families or you’d rather suffer and nibble while they enjoy and nosh. It’s all about the noshing!  So nothing I share during this challenge will be force fed! I LOVE FOOD! Period! And food should always taste good. And I’m not chef so there won’t be some crazy grew-it-in-my-own-garden-with-organic-soil type dishes. (no offense if you do); I just don’t have a green thumb, so those farmers who supply my local grocery store…LOVE YOU {smooches}… Alright, let’s get cookin’

Basil Pesto Lemon pepper Baked Chicken w/ “Green Giant steamers” Red Skin potatoes, green beans, carrots & Cauliflower …hubby AND kids AND Father-in-law devoured it!!!

Here are a few sample menu plans to get you going and some supplements to support your fat burning CORE challenge!
Clean Eating – Pick the season, print the menu AND the grocery list!

Smoothies  Just replace one meal a day with one of these smoothies, exercise three times a week, and follow a balanced diet. It’s that simple. You can lower cholesterol levels, lose pounds, and shed inches.
