A CHEF IS ONLY AS GOOD AS THEIR RECIPE...AND SO ARE YOU

Growing up there was a noticeable difference between a bowl of pasta eaten at my house and a bowl of pasta eaten at Grandma Anita's. The difference wasn't the brand of pasta, it was the sauce that topped it. God rest her soul; my grandma made a delicious sauce. She also made an incredible homemade pizza which was always the first appetizer to go at every family party.

My mom didn't make her mom's sauce. My mom was a working mom who didn't have all day to make sauce from scratch so hers came directly from a Prego jar. And Prego's recipe just couldn't stack up against Grandma Anita.

How fit you are this year and in those to follow will be a direct reflection of how good your recipe is.

Let's be honest... Most people's recipe for fitness sucks.

A typical year might consist of a sprinkle of running, a dash of elliptical, a few exercise classes, and some morsels of weight training. And then they wonder why their fitness is as bad as the taste of America's Choice brand tomato sauce.
