Nutrition=Quality over Quantity

I wanted to share a thought with all of you that has been on my mind lately.  With a world of conveniences, fast food, and processed food, we need to remember to get back to the basics.  There is NO easy or instant way to eat clean (well, unless you have enough money to have a chef HA!).  It takes planning, preparation and commitment, but it's more rewarding than ever!  If you want to lose weight for good, be, feel and look healthy, it all starts with a good nutrition plan. 
It's crucial to look at more than just the calories in food.  Sugar, sodium, fiber, vitamins, cholesterol and fat also need to be considered when picking out food to eat.  There are so many "healthy" and "nutritious" prepared foods out there, it's no wonder why we keep forgetting the basics!  If it's in the inner aisles of a grocery store or in a box, chances are it's not healthy.  I stick to a rule-if there are ingredients in the item that I can't pronounce, I don't buy it.  Look at the side of a TV dinner just for kicks, and you'll see what I'm talking about.  I now use sliced chicken breast for my lunch meat.  I had no idea there can be HALF your daily limit of sodium in just 4 slices of lunch meat!
So my point is, pay attention to calories, fat, sodium, sugar, fiber, vitamins and cholesterol.  I now buy all whole grain products, including pasta.  Most of the food I buy is fresh produce and lean meats.  I eat 6 times a day, and am able to do so because I eat healthy food that is nutrient-dense and low fat/calorie.  It's great!

The new me...

The new me tries new things!  I love to take on a challenge!  The old me sat around all day, never went anywhere, never tried anything new, and didn't love myself.  The NEW me is happy, independent, confident, outgoing, and enjoys new experiences! 
This last weekend was one of them.  I went on an overnight backpacking trip with my husband to a place here in AZ called Gordon Creek.  It is near Payson and is fairly undiscovered in the region.  It was a TOUGH 2 mile hike, and took us 3 hours to get to our camping spot. 
We encountered horses, cows and a black rattlesnake, YIKES!!!  Well, we kept going and were drenched from the hard work!  It poured on us as we were putting up the tent which was a welcome shower.  ; )  The creek we camped by ended up turning into a raging river from all the rain, and we were lucky to sleep next to that all night!  The following morning, we heard plenty of elk and cows, it was very entertaining!  The hike out was uphill the entire way and was TOUGH!  But, I'd rather be out living and enjoying life than sitting home watching TV. 
I am SO glad I found P90X and Shakeology, combined with a committed attitude, this has changed my life!  If you want to live life the way you deserve, message me @ letsgetasixpack@gmail.com.  I would love to coach you for FREE!  We'll do this together!
