I am not a weight loss expert. Most of what I know comes from what I find online or reblog from others. I am currently 100 pounds overweight and I feel very uncomfortable in my body. I am not losing weight for anyone but myself. I want to be healthy, comfortable and look good in anything I wear and I will do whatever it takes to get there! =)
Holding 3- to 5-pound weights, stand with your feet slightly farther than hip-distance apart. Pull your abs in, draw your shoulders back and down. Bend your knees and lower yourself into a squat, keeping your knees over or behind your toes [A].
Straighten your knees to the starting position as you press your arms overhead [B]. Repeat 10 to 15 times.

6 (about 12 oz) chicken tenderloins
6 tbsp shredded coconut
1/4 cup panko crumbs
2 tbsp crushed cornflake crumbs
1/3 cup egg substitute or egg whites
olive oil spray
6 cups mixed baby greens
3/4 cup shredded carrots
1 large tomato, sliced
1 small cucumber, sliced
For the Vinaigrette:
1 tbsp oil
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp white vinegar (balsamic would work too)
2 tsp dijon mustard
Whisk all vinaigrette ingredients; set aside.
Preheat oven to 375°.
Combine coconut flakes, panko, cornflake crumbs and salt in a bowl. Put egg whites or egg beaters in another bowl.
Lightly season chicken with salt. Dip the chicken in the egg, then in the coconut crumb mixture. Place chicken on a cookie sheet lined with parchment for easy cleanup.Lightly spray with olive oil spray and bake for 30 minutes turning halfway, or until chicken is cooked through.
Place 2 cups baby greens on each plate. Divide carrots, cucumber, tomato evenly between each plate. When chicken is ready slice on the diagonal and place on top of greens. Heat dressing in the microwave a few seconds and divide equally between each salad; a little over 1 tbsp each.
