Your December 2016 #30DayChallenge Starts Here!!!

Happy Thursday & welcome to our December 30 day challenge! Can you believe that we are already in the last month of this year!!?? Wow 2017 will be here before we know it! So I think the time is absolutely right to get a head start on your new year 2017 weight loss goals! This month there will be 3 challenge options:

1) 30 days of no added sugar outside of fruit. No pasta, no rice, no bread and no potatoes. So you eat lean meat, vegetables, fruit, Greek yogurt with no added sugar (Dannon Triple Zero), beans, nuts, hummus, eggs, green tea, herbal teas, black coffee, almond milk, protein powder for smoothies. Limit dairy where at all possible.

2)Paleo Diet – Pretty close to #1 but no beans and some nuts are eliminated. Check it out at

3)If you want to go hard like me  incorporate some intermittent fasting. Check it out here at This is not a diet it is an eating pattern where you eat clean from 12pm-8pm and fast intermittently from 8pm-11:59am. Eating this way allows for you to burn more fat and get leaner in the process, it also helps reduce inflammation, helps reduce insulin resistance & aids in eliminating toxins from the body. I am a witness that this works. I lost 8 pounds in November from following this eating pattern. 

Whatever you decide to do this month is totally up to you! The ultimate goal of this challenge is this:

Eat Clean! No processed foods!
Get Sleep! 7-9 hours of sleep!
Exercise! 5 days a week for at least 30-60 mins each session! Try to include both cardio and strength training in each session alternating the muscle group worked daily.

So let’s get it in my friends and make this month of December Healthy, Active and Stress Free!!! 💯

I am praying for & believing with you for your success this month! Nothing is impossible for you if you believe and put your faith into action through the execution of your diet and exercise plan!

Let’s get it !!! 💪
