I love to work out, talk about working out, talk about what to eat to work out better and feel better, and I love to write! I hope that you enjoy your visit to my little corner of fitness and healthy blogging.

How are your nutritional habits this week? Don't underestimate the importance of clean eating....consistently! Don’t neglect the importance of what you eat by thinking that you can work it right off with two hours at the gym or a super hard cycle class...hard workouts and clean eating are what will make the difference in your fitness, strength, AND how you look! It's a choice you will have to make many times in a day...eat that junk to give in to a craving...or choose something that is clean...whole and guess what GOOD for you!

Burpee Push Up Ladder
The Burpee/Push Up Ladder is 1 burpee then 1 push up, 1 burpee then 2 push ups, 1 burpee then 3 push ups... you only do one burpee, it's the number of push ups that change.
My New Favorite Recipe for Chicken
so, you know I am the Queen of how to create a new chicken recipe...I am married to the Chicken Man...I also have a fresh veggie garden which has giant bunches of Kale waiting to be eaten!
Fresh Kale and Lettuce from our family garden
here's my latest
3 boneless chicken breasts or tenders (2 to 3 pounds)
already baked and seasoned with Mrs Dash, chopped into bite sized pieces
2 cups chopped fresh broccoli
2 cups chopped fresh cauliflower
1 small onion chopped
tbs fresh crush garlic
1 tbs fresh oregano
saute the veggies and herbs in a little lemon juice, white wine or low sodioum chicken broth until crisp tender
add chicken and stir it all up
I added a SMALL amount of lite soy sauce and fresh ginger for flavor
then the last 5 minutes, add the kale and saute until the kale is soft, squeeze lemon juice over the top and sprinkle sesame seeds.
this was SO delish! my little ones loved it, which surprised me. I thought they would not appreciate all those veggies, but, I think that they are getting used to real food and starting to appreciate what whole foods taste like..victory!
