Week 6 of the 12 Week Challenge

What's your weakness? It can be something that we have already worked on, but you are still struggling with. Or it can be something completely different. Chips, candy, snacking, etc.

Your challenge this week... Beat the weakness. Put on your motivation and determination and kick your vice in the butt. If it is a food choice that you struggle with... March right into your kitchen and toss out whatever it is that is your vice. Empty the bag of chips in the trashcan, dump the soda down the drain. Quit buying the tempting foods. If you beat the temptation in the grocery store, then there is nothing to fight when you are at home. 

Trade that snack for a healthier choice. If you are a chip-a-holic, try Kale chips. They are yummy and easy to make.  Here is a recipe from Food Network for them. 


  • 1 head kale, washed and thoroughly dried
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Sea salt, for sprinkling


Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F.
Remove the ribs from the kale and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces. Lay on a baking sheet and toss with the olive oil and salt. Bake until crisp, turning the leaves halfway through, about 20 minutes. Serve as finger food.

If it is chocolate, then try a 90 calorie chocolate Fiber One bar. You still get to have some chocolate, but it is a better choice then a candy bar. I know with Easter right around the corner the candy is calling to us! But let's make healthy choices this week.  
If you are not keeping up with your work out schedule, then focus on that. Your health is worth the time and sacrifice this challenge takes! 
You identify your addiction. You find the will power to change it! Good Luck! :)
