24 Day Challenge / Day 24

on March 30, 2013

Yep, 24, that’s what I said…I know right, these last 24 days have just flown by…but your good health journey should NOT come to an end.  Even if you haven’t decided to move forward w/ the Advocare products you should still use all the tools you’ve learned to continue on your health & wellness path!  Being sure to pay attention to portion control, protein to carb ratios and water consumption and always remember M-O-V-E!  I, myself, LOVE the way I feel on the products and will continue to maintain my pill-popping regimen (& I don’t think I could function w/o my Spark)faith

**Fit Tip:  1. Load up on whole foods.  2. Don’t overdo it.  3. Choose low-fat dairy.  4. Beware of health halos.  Local organic cream from the farmers’ market is still cream, and it packs loads of calories. Foods like ice cream and bacon should be considered splurges. And a product labeled “No saturated fat” may be full of sodium, sugar, and refined flour.  5. Steer clear of trans fats.  6. Consider your carbs.  Get most of your carbo­hydrates from fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, not from sugary and refined starches, like crackers and desserts.

BREAKFAST:  MR Shake OR Cranberry oatmeal breakfast bars
SNACK:  Apple, celery or banana w/ natural peanut butter
LUNCH:  Veggie “burger” (no bun) over crisp mixed green salad
SNACK:  Fruit and nut milkshake
DINNER:  Baked stir fry

Cranberry Oatmeal Breakfast Bars:
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup, whole, blanched almonds, chopped
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1.Preheat oven to 350 °F (175 °C).
2.Mix together all the ingredients.
3.Spread into a well-greased pan.
4.Bake for 10-20 minutes, depending on your crunch preference (the longer it bakes, the crunchier it gets).
5.Let it cool before you cut it or it will fall apart.

Fruit & Nut Milkshake:
1 cup soy/almond milk
1 oz lightly salted almonds
20 seedless red grapes
1 large banana
1.Combine all ingredients in a blender.
2.Blend until desired consistency.
3.Note: use a blender that will grind/blend whole nuts and fruit. Add more fruit for a thicker consistency.

Baked Stir Fry:
6 oz bella mushrooms
4 oz thin wheat spaghetti, dry
1 large chicken breast
3 small yellow squash
1/4 cup fat free Italian dressing
2 medium zucchinis
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
1.Slice thin the chicken, zucchini, squash and mushrooms (the thinner you slice it the quicker it will cook).
2.Combine ingredients in a metal or glass pan large enough to hold them and allow for some stirring. Add Italian dressing and soy sauce. If the pan is rather large and the sauce isn’t at least 1″ deep you can add water as needed. Too much juice/water will make this dish soggy.
3.Bake at to 300 °F (205 °C) for about 45 minutes. At 45 minutes stir the ingredients around and add the noodles in a way that the remaining juice will reach them. If there is not enough juice you can add water as needed.
4.Once the noodles are done, remove and serve.
5.Note: You can add all kinds of vegetables to this dish like carrots, snow peas, water chestnuts etc. You can make it without the noodles for less calories and carbs however using the noodles eliminates the need for a side dish. You can change the meat to your favorite, cooking time should stay the same.

SIMPLE EXERCISE PLAN:  Bending Squats with Cans
You likely bend dozens of times a day reaching for things on the ground. Turn those bends into squats, which strengthen leg muscles and reduce the risk of osteoporosis and arthritis. When you squat down, keep your upper body straight with the majority of your weight on your heels. When returning to standing position, flex from the knees. Repeat the squat five times; squat several times daily.
