You know that skinless chicken breast is a great source of lean protein, but grilled chicken night after night gets boring. Here’s a new way to dress up your healthy lean protein. The southwest flavors of chiles and lime make this a seriously tasty meal.

Are you ready to start to DO something to make yourself feel better?
I get many ladies that email me in desperation that it’s TIME. Time to take your health in your own hands. One lady emailed and said she’s been reading my emails for years now and is tired of sitting at the sidelines and is now ready to get in the game.
Let me tell you it’s NOT TOO LATE. Several of my clients have not done a thing since junior high, or longer
Don’t be discouraged or think that an active life is out of our reach.
I’m so proud of Heidi who has taken her health seriously. She was encountering serious health issues that she couldn’t find a resolution to, so she kept searching. She found my program and even discovered that gluten free eating did wonders for the inflammation in her joints.
Who’da thunk this?
We need to be advocates for our own health. No one knows our own bodies like we do. And if you don’t know your own body, it’s time that you spent some time getting to know what your body is capable of. Get to know yourself, challenge yourself with simple physical challenges. You’d be amazed at how a physical accomplishment will lift the spirit.
Take a look at super star in the making, Heidi. Be inspired by her story and then go ahead and do the challenge at the end. By the way, your comments on the blog would be most appreciated to encourage Heidi who really put herself out there in sharing her story…
I’m very new to your program and appreciate it very much. I like the fact that I can just turn on my computer and work out with your follow along video programs. I’m still pretty weak and haven’t been able to get through a whole 20 minutes yet.
So far, I’ve taken my measurements and set the expectation to work out three times a week. I haven’t been at this long enough to see results. I just did my 4th work out yesterday!
I will say this though, I got through the entire 20 minutes yesterday, and while I feel a little workout stress in my muscles, it’s not the horrible inflammatory kind I’ve been battling since 2004. So, I’m hopeful. I have to modify some of the exercises so that I don’t re-injure my back or shoulders, but am hoping that in time I’ll be able to do everything without modification.
Here’s a BEGINNER challenge for you….
Do this circuit as many times as you can in 20 minutes. If you aren’t up to a 20 minute workout, set a timer for an increasingly longer time frame and STICK TO IT. For example, you may do 5 minutes on day one, 7 minutes on day two, and work up, adding two minutes a day until you get to a 20 minute workout.
Warm up with 10 each: arm circles, step jacks, stationary marches, wall push ups, sit to a chair…then:
Repeat for the time allotted.

You can be like Heidi, on the road to better health, happier and more active.

In a small bowl combine the chile pepper, salt, pepper, oregano, 1/4 cup of the lime juice and the olive oil. Place the chicken in a large baking pan and coat with the seasoning mixture. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours.

It’s time to get moving.
No, I mean really moving. I mean move like you mean it.
I have a formula that will get you into the shorts that are tight around the waist, the blouse that the sleeves are uncomfortable, the pants that just feel too tight around your bum.
But you have to challenge yourself. When I say ‘challenge yourself’, I don’t mean that you have to start doing crazy pull ups and burpees like me. I know I’m a little over the top. What I mean is that you have to just do a little more than you did the day before.
If a workout doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you…
Your body needs a new stimulus to change. If you expect change and do the same thing over and over, well, that’s just the definition of insanity.
I have a new program called Challenge Fat Loss. Now it sounds pretty tough, and it is, but it’s only as tough as you make it.
It’s all follow along videos and I coach you every step of the way. My other coaches, Brian and Sean and I will show all the ways to modify and intensify each exercise.
You need to make it the challenge that’s right for you, we provide the workout and motivation. You decide how much you can safely do at your fitness level. It’s a winning combination to get you into last year’s wardrobe.
You’ll feel so good though, you’ll want to buy some new summer clothes
Here’s a video with a challenge you can try:
I don’t use age as an excuse for belly fat.
My new M2A method of training helps beat belly fat. If you increase lean muscle tone, you’ll increase resting metabolic rate. You’ll do short intense workouts that create after burn so you’ll burn calories long after your workout is over.
Here’s the workout in the video:
Do 30 seconds of work with a 5 second transition:
sit outs (do mountain climbers or jumping jacks)
prisoner squat jumps (or squats)
push up shoulder touch (kneeling squats)
prisoner reverse lunge
Repeat up to 6 times.
Find out more about Challenge Fat Loss and how M2A can help you get ‘beach’ ready just in time for summer.
