#Dare2beFit Challenge: Day 6

charmaine jones

Challenge: Prepare healthy meals and snacks in advance!

Your Truth: I simply do not have time to prepare or eat in the mornings.  I am always rushing for work. 

Dare: Prepare your meals, snack, and even breakfast for tomorrow.  Another suggestion is to have ready-to-go foods handy such as low-fat yogurt, nuts, peanut butter on whole wheat crackers, and boiled eggs. 

Cheers To Your Health, 

Food Jonezi 

#Dare2beFit Challenge: Day 5

Challenge: No, not even eggs!

Truth: I eat meat with each meal.  I love burgers, chicken and seafood. 

Dare: Eat like a vegan.  Enjoy meatless meals and still get your recommended amount of proteins and nutrients you need. 


Cheers To Your Health,

Challenge: No Coffee, No Coffee Time

Truth: I drink coffee everyday!  I can’t imagine not having a cup of coffee each day. 

Dare: Start your day with either green tea or iced water to boost your metabolism.  Both green tea and water have shown to boost metabolism to keep you fuel throughout the day.

#Dare2BeFit Challenge: Day 3

Good morning challengers!

How did yesterday's dare go? Today, we're going to try something that may be a little different for some of us. I'm challenging you to step out of your comfort zone and try working out with a partner or a group. One of my favorite reasons to workout with a partner or a group is the motivation I receive. When I'm with someone else, we can encourage one another and help each other to push through the tough moments. Already have a workout buddy? Give them a shoutout in the comments below!

Challenge: Join a buddy or group to workout.

Your Truth: I feel more comfortable exercising alone. I feel like other people are looking at me.

Food Jonezi's Dare: Move your buns to today, but move along with a workout group. You may learn new moves or meet a new friend. We double dare you to get out of your comfort zone and try something new.

Check me out as I take the dare!


Be sure to let us know how you're doing! Leave a comment here, on Twitter, or on Facebook.


Cheers to your health!

The 4th of July is a time of celebration. Here are some simple food and nutrition tips as you enjoy the holiday with family and friends:

1.     Use smaller plates to fix your meals.

2.     Make half your plate vegetables and fruits.

3.     Enjoy lean baked and grilled meats. Try to avoid fried foods including vegetables and fruits.

4.     After each meal, wait 10 minutes before having seconds.

5.     Snack on watery, juicy fruits, vegetables and nuts to keep you hydrated and full.

6.     Make a low-fat dipping sauce for crabs or seafood.

Low-fat crab dipping sauce ideas:  

Instead of mayonnaise TRY 1 tbsp of Low-fat Mayonnaise with 1tbsp of Dijon Mustard or Horseradish OR 1 tbsp of original or flavor hummus with 1 tbsp of Dijon Mustard or Horseradish

Instead of salt TRY a mixed herbal blend such as basil, rosemary, and oregano OR Mrs. Dash without salt

Instead of hot sauce TRY cayenne pepper, hot peppers or jalapenos     

Finally, always practice good food safety habits:

·       Check food temperatures periodically.  

·       Mayonnaise-based salads should always be stored on ice.

·       Meats and protein-based foods (eggs) should be covered and away from uncooked meats.
