Do you love extra flavor with your food?
And do you sabotage a healthy meal with added calories?
One helpful way to avoid extra calories: READ NUTRITION LABELS.
Many years ago I started paying closer attention to my calorie intake. I quickly learned that condiments were definitely my food crutch and I didn’t understand portion control. So let’s just flashback to my college days… A little dip here a little extra dressing there… I honestly didn’t realize the extra calories and fat I was adding to my foods. But I truly love flavor!
Through the years of education and sampling I have learned to still enjoy my dipping, but by reading labels or even better making my own sauces. I have several go-to’s for making sauces or dressings.
The article here gives us a great reference to help us make healthy selections:
F.I.T. ARTICLE OF THE MONTH
Get F.I.T. For Warmer Weather!!! It’s such a happy time of year when we all have a little spring fever and are excited to spend more time outside. Feeling great in warmer weather makes us even happier. Keeping up with our exercise routine is definitely on our minds as we think about the beach, boating, vacations, etc. REMEMBER STAY WITH YOUR ROUTINE!!! It’s hard to get back but never impossible. It takes 90 days to develop good habits and 90 days to change bad habits. The article here helps support my thoughts:

F.I.T. TECH TIPS
PINNING THE INSTRUCTOR ON ZOOM
By default, the Zoom screen switches between speakers in online meetings. If you'd like the video not to flip around when others are talking, you can "pin" the instructor.

F.I.T. RECIPES OF THE MONTH
The recipes I include are quick, healthy, and delicious. I’m always busy and in a hurry, so cooking fresh is a challenge. I hope sharing these recipes saves you time and that you enjoy.
Clean fresh eating is key!

I absolutely love this healthy and simple recipe! As usual, I switch things up a bit with my cooking and recipes. While this recipe is great, I do love chopping up a rotisserie chicken and lightly sautéing it as my meat choice. When I was younger my mother and I used to make homemade egg rolls, wraps, and all! It was a family fave. Her trick was sautéing chicken breast and then cutting it into small pieces versus ground meats. Either choice is delicious but I love my mom's way best! I hope you love it as much as I do!

Speaking of condiments, this recipe is delicious and simple. I make this as a topper for many dishes. It’s fabulous on burgers, fish sandwiches, lettuce wraps, salads, tacos, or with fresh-cut veggies. This is a nutritious way to add flavor while adding good nutrients as well!
F.I.T. FAMILY MEMBER OF THE MONTH
Sandra makes my day!
Sandra and I have been friends and trained together for years. From poolside watching our kids when they were little to Bible Study, Personal Training, Body Pump, and now F.I.T. I’m grateful for her and her trust in me as a Trainer. She has no idea how much I love having her in class. Her humor, wit, and strength are motivating and fun for us all!
She is so much stronger than she realizes and her mental toughness is admirable and addictive. And speaking of discipline earlier in my newsletter, Sandra helps me want to be a better instructor, trainer, motivator, and friend. It’s friends like this that keep me disciplined as well. It takes a village and I love our team! Here’s to Sandra and all of her additions to our F.I.T. FAMILY!
"I have been a client of Fonda’s for many years now and during the pandemic, when we were stuck at home, I felt lost with a workout routine. I tried various YouTube videos but I found I would get distracted. Fonda reached out to some of her clients and we began working out together via zoom. It was so much fun and what a workout! Fonda finally started FIT and I have never looked back on my workouts or going back to the gym. The F.I.T. “Zoomers” (her clients) are so much fun to work out with, it is like a small family. I really appreciate waking up and getting my workout clothes on and connecting to my zoom classes without ever leaving my home! Fonda always includes modified versions of the workouts so you can go low impact or high. If you are sitting on the fence about working out, this is a great place to start your journey!!"
HOW DID THE YEAR GO BY SO FAST?!?!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MARGOT!!!!
