After moving and getting back into my kitchen and new neighborhood, I am trying to keep up my usual eating and exercise routines. It is tough in the summer! But staying on track is very important to meeting my health goals. By staying on track, I hope to lose a little weight and feel better about exercising.
I recently came upon SlimKicker, an app that helps you account for your healthy goal progress. In their own words, “SlimKicker is a calorie counter and game that turns your diet and fitness goals into a level-up game with points, rewards and challenges. You level up by tracking healthy calories and exercises, and completing challenges such as quitting soda for a week. They also have healthy recipes for many diets as well.”
I’d love to hear your own healthy challenge ideas. If you comment below in 1-2 sentences about a fun or creative diet or fitness challenge, you could win a stainless 6 quart slow cooker! Just share your idea and SlimKicker will pick their favorite. The winner will be announced next week. Good luck, and I can’t wait to hear your ideas!

A good challenge for slimkicker is to limit your internet use to work hours only. Sitting during work is bad enough, but sitting after work is worse because most ppl don’t have to…
I use mashed avocado (healthy fat)…..from California, buy American!….instead of mayonnaise when making tuna or chicken salad or as a sandwich spread.

To make a simple sauce for boneless chicken breasts or fish, blend a bottle of drained roasted red peppers with 4 ounces of lowfat cream cheese or substitute. If its too thick, add a little Greek non-fat yogurt.
My biggest challenge in the summer is avoiding the urge to dig into all of the delicious dips and snack foods that seem to constantly be around. My tip is to constantly surround yourself with healthy options. Every time someone puts out a bowl of chips I put out a bowl of grapes or cut up slices of watermelon!
It is definitely easier to get through a workout knowing you will be rewarded once finished. If you love chocolate, you can have a piece of dark chocolate or if you love fruit, make a fruit-filled shake!
