I like to move it move it

Okay, I think I have stated this before but I will state it again.  You will see the most results if you allow fitness to become your life.  The more you move it, the more calories you burn, the more fat you burn, the better body fat you will achieve.  I'm not looking for the obsession some of us fitness gurus have but I need everyone to INCREASE your physical activity.  Find three ways EVERY single day to increase your P.A. without stepping foot in the gym. I still want you to come to the gym, but I'm looking for a change in lifestyle.
If I don't motivate you enough, this video will :)
Good luck. I love you all.

Some ideas with fruit...

I found some great recipes containing fruit. So, here are a few....

If you have to make a dessert for something..use this's not fat free by any means but it has a lot of good things on it and its DELICIOUS! I don't like cream cheese so I use whipped cream. It's also better for you that way!

Breakfast Ideas

Quite a few of you are having a hard time with breakfast.  It's easy to mess up on breakfasts because a) we are so tired and don't want to put a lot of effort into what we are eating and b) it seems like most breakfast food is carbs, so we get hungry super fast after we eat.  I am going to give you some ideas and I want everyone to work on breakfast in the next week. PERFECT breakfast every day! You can do it!

Option 1: 
1 whole wheat tortillia
3 egg whites and 1 whole egg
1/4 c. low fat cheese
Apple Juice (real kind, not sugar kind :))

Option 2: 
1 piece of whole wheat toast
2 turkey sausage patties. 
Orange Juice

Option 3:
Low fat high protein fruit breakfast smoothie
Example: 1 cup of yogurt. 1 tbsp. peanut butter. 1 cup strawberries. 1 banana, ice.  

Option 4: 
1 cup of oatmeal
1/2 tablespoon brown sugar
1/4 cup chopped almonds and Raisin mixture. 

The most important part of the day in breakfast and there MUST be protein in breakfast or our cravings will be out of control by lunch which screws up our whole day!
