It’s the combination of increased muscle plus the reduction in body fat that will get you the toned arms you’re after.
It’s easier to eat healthy most of the time when you have a few decent recipes on hand.
It’s great to conquer a fitness challenge. But then what?
I’m sharing two of my favourite healthy pancake recipes, both packed full of delicious, nutritious blueberries.
It’s one thing to go through the motions of a randomly chosen workout, it’s another to intentionally challenge your body to build muscle and strength.

Before the Easy Healthy Living Program, I didn’t drink enough water, yoyo ate throughout my working days and then tended to eat too much on my days off because I felt so run down and hungry. On the program I ate more food, but on a regular basis and became mindful of having a water bottle on hand which gave me more energy (I even have a water bottle on my bedside table now so that I can drink before I start my day). The program was well laid out and easy to understand. The meals were simple and it was good to try new foods. Being part of the Facebook accountability group with other like-minded people ideas was encouraging and in itself a boost. I loved how everyone was happy to share their meal ideas and photos and share their experiences throughout the program.

Before starting the Easy Healthy Living Program I was stuck in a food rut and wasn’t committed to exercising more than 1-2 times a week. I would grab the easiest thing in the fridge to eat for meals –like a piece of toast for lunch or cheese and crackers for snacks. I cooked the same few meals on repeat and was bored of cooking and eating. Since doing the program I’ve lost weight, have heaps more energy and am sleeping better than ever. I’ve started eating a large variety of meals, especially interesting snacks again and now I try to cook everything from scratch. My favourite things about the program were having a daily workout planned, a meal plan planned, great support group through Facebook and I really enjoyed doing the daily challenges. I would definitely recommend this program to anyone as it is achievable, fun and teaches people a whole new way to live their life and eat healthier.
