How to get me FREE as a Health and Wellness coach!!!

I've been contemplating which package I wanted to feature here, and since a lot of people are facing economical hardships, I honestly feel that this is the best package to purchase if you're unable to start the entire Chew the Fat Off program.

I am offering my services as a coach FREE to anyone that purchases this package. I will help you with meal planning, healthy recipes, nutritional support and fitness advice.

If you're interested in this package or any other Chew the Fat Off package, please contact me here: -OR- you can text me here: (916) 370-6105.

I do offer each Chew the Fat Off products as an individual purchase, but if you want FREE health and wellness coach services, you have to purchase the Stay Fit package that is featured in this post.

Feel free to ask about purchasing any of the products without purchasing any packages.

A new game-day favorite!!!!

Oh wow, this is an awesome idea and if you want to make it really healthy, make the cauliflower pizza crust. I'll post the recipe link to the crust at the end of this post. And if you don't want to use mayonnaise, I suggest using your favorite sandwich spread.

BLT Pizza

1⁄2 cup mayonnaise (I prefer Miracle Whip) or 1⁄2 cup salad dressing (I prefer Miracle Whip)
2 teaspoons dried basil
1⁄2 teaspoon garlic powder
1⁄8 teaspoon onion powder
1 (16 ounce) prepared pizza crust, Italian bread shell or 1 (16 ounce) your favorite homemade prepared pizza crust
12 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled, divided (I use turkey bacon)
3⁄4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded (I've used Monterrey Jack instead as well)
3⁄4 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded

In a bowl, combine mayonnaise, basil, garlic powder and onion powder; refrigerate for 1/2 hour or more.
Place the pizza crust on an ungreased 12-inch pizza pan.
Spread mayonnaise mixture over crust.
Set aside 1/4 cup bacon.
Sprinkle remaining bacon, cheddar cheese and mozzarella cheese on crust.
Bake at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 8 to 12 minutes or until cheese is melted. If doing a homemade crust, I bake mine at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for about 25 to 30 minutes or until done.
Top with lettuce, tomatoes, and reserved bacon.
Cut into wedges and serve. Enjoy!

Just posting an update....

I had to get an x-ray done on my back earlier today. The pain has been getting increasingly worse over these last several weeks. My Doctor increased the amount of muscle relaxers I can take and had to put me on a pain medication. I don't see the physical therapist until next week. So the only relief I am able to get right now is soaking in the tub every night, it will help get me through until the next morning and then it's back to square one.

I'm hoping to get my back better so I can start my very low impact exercise routine and I know the physical therapy should help get me there. I am going to start doing Pilates too. I have the mat for it, just haven't used it yet. My weight loss is still doing good, it's slow but steady. Eating healthy isn't a problem for me, as long as I have the means to buy what I need, but I've had several friends help out when they're able. So to those of you you that have helped, thank you.

I have been able to do some work here at home, not as much as I would like, but hey, as long as I'm doing well at it, that's all that really matters. Am I making tons of money, no, I am however making what we need, and that is something I am super proud of. I am slowly getting back to the old me, just having to take my time doing it.

I hope you're all doing well. If you would like to see all my health journey posts, please visit Healthy Choices for Life​, that's my Official Facebook page for my blog. Take care all.
