You are NOT ALONE!

You are not ALONE!  We all feel that way sometimes or ALL the time, but when you realize that and talk to others about their struggles, you can gain motivation and strength from them as well as give support and strength to them.

If you feel like you will never see results, you are wrong!  You will either feel better, lose weight, feel better in clothes, like who you see in the mirror OR GAIN WEIGHT!  WHEN YOU GIVE UP ON YOUR GOALS, YOU WILL PUNISH YOURSELF BY EATING MORE!

DON'T PUNISH YOURSELF, REALIZE YOU ARE WORTH THE EFFORT AND DEDICATE SOME TIME TO FEELING THE BEST YOU CAN!  ALSO, SURROUND YOURSELF WITH CAN-DO PEOPLE!

Hopefully you've been on track, but if you haven't, don't lose heart.  A healthy lifestyle, which includes, clean eating, exercise and a positive outlook, takes time to develop.  This isn't just 4, 6 or 8 weeks, this is 4, 6 or 8 weeks to get you on track for the rest of your life!

On another subject and one of my favorite subjects....food!  I just made dinner for tonight.

Turkey "Tostada" Salad

I cooked lean ground turkey with no-salt tomato sauce, no-fat refried beans, Spanish rice (using Pam spray instead of oil), raw tomato & jalapeno salsa & chopped lettuce.  I also bought tostada shells, guacamole, shredded cheese & vinegar marinated carrots.

My family makes tostadas out of all this and they absolutely love it!  Kinda "gringo style" but its works!  I make a big salad out of most everything and skip the tostada shell, guacamole & cheese.  I know it sounds boring, but its really good and I feel like I'm eating what everyone else is eating!

4 ounces of turkey 170 cal, tomato sauce 11 cal, 1/2 cup beans 110 cal, 1/4 c rice 53 cal, 1/4 salsa (as my dressing) 10 cal, 1/2 c carrots 25 cal, 2 c lettuce 15 cal.  All together my meal is 394 calories!!!!  If you can't live without the tostada shell or can use more calories, mine are 170 calories each.  If you can, have a fresh corn tortilla instead, you'll cut out a lot of fat.

Hope you like it!
