THANK YOU for making 2013 great … and wishing you a fantastic 2014!
I’m thankful every day I go to ‘work’ (if you can call it that) … I feel so fortunate that I can help hundreds- and now even thousands- of people in Chattanooga and around the world improve their lives, do what I love and actually get paid for it … and it’s all because of YOU … so again, many, many thanks.
New Year’s resolutions may be a bit cliche – but now is an great time to reflect on the past year and plan for the one ahead.
I’m personally huge on goal setting in every aspect of my life. And it’s so important, no matter what your goals are – whether that’s losing weight, managing your time more effectively, doing something you’ve always wanted to do like start a business or travel to a foreign country … because it works!!
If you’re questioning the true effectiveness of writing down your goals, here’s some research statistics I dug

And grab a pen and paper, because you’ve got some homework.
Nothing will work unless you apply it. So take ACTION on your goals and watch them become reality.
Last night, I had zucchini brownies a client made and they were DELICIOUS!
So I was really excited when one of our newest members at Scenic City Boot Camp shared with me her healthy twist on Alfredo sauce.
Kevin and I have used Shirataki noodles many times, made from the Asian Konjac plant, that are full of beneficial water-soluble fiber and extremely low in calories and carbs. (You can find them by the salad and tofu area in the local grocery store).
Pair the Shirataki fettucine noodles with this Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce and you have a tasty pasta dish for less than 100 calories, that can also help you achieve your fitness and weight loss goals!

When it comes to salads, I’m pretty high-maintenance. I’m not okay with just a bed of lettuce and dressing. No ma’am! I want my salads to be dressed up like a model at fashion week. I got have color, flavor, and lots of “pizazz”. The more “stuff” in my salad the better so I don’t have to reminded that I’m just eating salad.

I love adding fruit, nuts, seeds, healthy fats and herbs to keep my salads fun and up-to-the-standards of my other food. So needless to say, I was quite ecstatic when I found these 3 salad creations to try the other day.
And I gotta tell you, once I made these salads, they didn’t last very long. So I had to share with you these amazing creations because if your family is high-maintenance like mine, these salads might “persuade” them to step over into the “healthier and lighter side of life” and just in time for your 4th of July celebration. =) Enjoy!
I love “fresh twists” on classic burgers…
Last year, we made “Firecracker Cheddar Buffalo Burgers” and the year before, it was Apple Mushroom Turkey burgers with bbq sauce for Memorial Day. This year, in the same tradition, I’ll be trying out Grilled Chicken with Dijon Apricot Sauce and the coleslaw with mandarin oranges (see recipes below) from this month’s issue of Muscle and Fitness Hers magazine.
Hope these fun twists on classic burgers get you inspired to re-awaken the “fit chef” inside you this holiday weekend! Enjoy! And Happy Memorial Day!!!
