The New Year is 5 days old and I hope you are staying focused on your goals. My good friend and nutritionist Chris Mohr, put a challenge up for the New Year to his clients , now my clients are being put to the same challenge. Keep reading to find out what Chris and I are doing and join in.

Its the time of year when everyone has lists, lists of what they need to accomplish in 2011. Lists of what will be accomplished in 2011.

Usually on top of the "resolution" list is to lose weight.   
But rather than just tell yourself you want to lose weight, we have a REAL Challenge for you.

Losing weight is the endpoint goal.

Rather than looking at the endpoint, though, what about the process it takes to get there?

We call them "Process Goals."

And I'm putting out a process goal challenge for you — not just to lose weight, but completely change your life by giving you more energy,  feeling better, decreasing how often you get sick, allowing you to focus more,  and your skin will improve and much, much more.


It’s not a magic pill or potion.

It’s eating REAL FOODS. Crazy, right? 

What does that mean?

Eliminating packaged junk.

Going through your kitchen and tossing out processed food coloring that is sold as "food" (think chips, candy, etc)

Not drinking liquid sugar, more commonly called soda (or any other sugary drink loaded with calories).

Instead of those, Real Foods are:

Foods that fuel your body

Foods that have very few ingredients and are ones that you can actually pronounce

Foods that make the cuts include nuts (all types), veggies and fruit, wild seafood, beans, grains like quinoa, free range eggs and chicken, grass fed beef. Ideally a lot of these will come from a local farmers market — everyone may not be able to get to a farmers market- but you would be surprised to see how many farmers markets have popped up lately. But the more local, the higher the nutrients, so aim to take advantage of Farmer’s Markets when possible.

Does this mean you’ll have to cook some? Sure does.

Does this mean the drive thru won’t be a regular stop for lunch or on the way home anymore? Yup

Does this mean you’ll save a TON of money because eating out is expensive? For sure.

And you know what else — you’ll feel like you’ve never felt before.

It has nothing to do with what the scale says — yes, that may move in the direction you want it as a results of eating REAL FOODS — but it’s not the goal of doing this.

Taking action is how you will achieve whatever it is you want.

Until then, success will be a struggle.

Thanks Chris, I am excited to take on this challenge myself and can't wait to post the great results that all my clients will be getting.
Fitnish Strong!
Dedicated to your Health and Fitness,
Chelsea C.
