Week’s Motivation: I will beat her!

 

I will beat her.

I will train harder.

I will eat cleaner.

I know her weaknesses.

I know her strengths.

I’ve lost to her before,

But not this time.

She is going down.

I have the advantage

because I know her well.

She is the old ME!

Spicy Motivation…

As we kick off the second week of January, here’s a thought for the week:

“Don’t worry about what you are giving up today, worry about what you RISK giving up if you don’t press on each day.”  – Pfitblog.com

Keep your focus on the big picture.  The day to day grind can get to all of us!  Keep your eye on the prize which is better health, feeling your best, taking care of your body, and being your best you.  It is so easy to get down on yourself when everyone else around you is indulging and you are not.  They are not walking your journey, living your life, making your choices!!! Take pride in the choices you are making and realize the results will pay off.

Here’s a little spice advice to help you add a new spice or flavor to your week.  Each spice is described in simple detail to help you decided when and where to add it to make your food more interesting and flavorful.  Enjoy and think outside the box.

Spicy Pineapple Salsa

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 – medium pineapple, skin removed and cut into thick slices
  • 1 – red onion, quartered
  • 1 cup – coriander leaves
  • 1 – red bullet chili
  • 1 tbsp – black sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp – olive oil

METHOD

1. Brush the pineapple with a little olive oil, pop on a baking tray and grill under a broiler until it starts to blacken and caramelize in spots. This took us 5-10 minutes. Alternatively you
could do this on a BBQ or stove-top griddle pan.
2. Roughly chop the pineapple, removing any hard core and set aside to cool.
3. In a food processor, put the onion, coriander, red bullet chili and cooled pineapple.
4. Pulse until the salsa is fine. You could also make a chunkier salsa by chopping everything by hand.
5. Stir in the sesame seeds and olive oil and season to taste.

Forget the diet, LIVE healthy!
