Transformation Tuesday!

In honor of Transformation Tuesday I wanted to take some time to share my transformation with you all!  Pictured below from left to right is my personal transformation from 2009 to 2014.  It may look to some that much hasn't changed, but it's simply not true.  The girl on the left was struggling inside.  Her confidence levels were low and her fears were big, but she was determined to shake these unwanted feelings.  After struggling for years prior to that first picture with unhealthy eating habits, it was time for a change.  I began working on becoming the best me I could be.  As my outward appearance was changing so was my inward appearance.  With each show I have gained more and more confidence.  If it weren't for my husband encouraging me to compete and believing in me, I'm not sure where I would be today. On another note, the reason I put a picture of myself pregnant in this photo collage was to prove that pregnancy does not have to ruin your body.  Do not let

Mozzarella, basil, and roasted red pepper stuffed chicken

5 oz raw chicken breast 1/2 oz of fresh mozzarella 10 grams roasted red pepper 2 basil leaves 160 grams baby broccoli Fresh ground pepper Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wash and dry chicken. Cut a slit in the chicken lengthwise being careful not to cut through. Carefully stuff the chicken with cut up pieces of cheese, red pepper and basil. Season chicken with fresh ground pepper and bake on a foil lined baking sheet for 18-20 minutes or until cooked through, depending on chicken thickness. While chicken is cooking saute the baby broccoli over medium heat with some cooking spray until tender. Then ENJOY 

Challenger Results

So very proud of this girl right here! Lindsey participated in our 21 day challenge that began 3 weeks ago and got some pretty amazing results. Down 11 lbs and 8.5 inches is definitely something to smile about and share with others. Most importantly, she loved how the clean eating along with portion control and exercise gave her so much energy. She says that, "if you put in the work you will get the results." She gained muscle tone and is planning to start another round soon! We are forming challenge groups in the month of July and would love to have you as an accountability partner. Who is ready to put in the work this month?   Shoot me an email and let's get you started!
