You mentioned Brussel sprouts – I have a recipe on my blog that you may want to try….cumin, honey and almonds. Sounds weird, but they’re really good. The recipe works with fresh or frozen. I also like them sauteed with olive oil, fresh garlic, salt and pepper. I think the trick is not to overcook them.

They say that muscle is heavier "by volume" than fat is, which means 5 lbs. of muscle takes up less space than 5 lbs. of fat within a body. I'm a believer. This totally explains how your clothes begin to fit better even though the numbers on the scale aren' t moving very fast.



This is GROSS. I know. But I'd rather see the fat HERE than on my body...


Each time we “resist” an urge to fall off plan or not exercise we strengthen our “resistance muscle” and each time we “give in” to temptation we strengthen our “give in muscle” making it easier to either "resist" or "give in" next time.
