Yes, It Works!

 

Happy Weekend Wonder Women!

We had a blast kicking off the first week of my birthday month by giving away my favorite detox system by TeaMi Blends. I get messages and emails constantly asking if it really works. YES, it works! I would never, ever promote anything and put my name behind a product if I didn’t love it and find it effective.

That being said, the skinny and colon teas in the 30-Day Detox are NOT a quick fix. Many people are looking for that magic product or diet for weightloss and this is not it. A few people have told me they have tried other “skinny” teas on the market and they didn’t work for them.

You must do the ALL the work including a clean diet and regular exercise.

Detoxes aid in weightloss because they help the body get rid of toxins that may be preventing your metabolism to function properly. I am all about gut health right now and researching how it effects adrenal fatigue. Look into it! Also, slow and steady wins the race. Losing weight slowly and pampering your body during the process will ensure long term success.

Trust me, being in the modeling industry for 25+ years — I know all about starvation, binging, harsh diet pills from Mexico, uppers, laxatives, hours of step aerobics and all the horrible things many of us have tried in the attempt to lose weight.  I am sure that all the years of not honoring my body and abusing it is a big reason I am having to do all of these healing things to restore it at almost 46 years old.

It’s not about being “skinny”.

It’s not about a thigh gap.

It’s not about wearing a size 2.

It’s about honoring this one body God blessed me with.

It’s about respecting myself.

It’s about being strong and vibrant.

It’s about doing the right things now so I feel and look my best 20 years from now.

It’s about having the energy to walk out my destiny. (DVF is 70 and she is still killing it in business & media and looks like a million bucks!!)

 

No photoshop! Everyone is right about the Samsung camera phone. Tried my hubby’s phone for the first time.

 

I proudly show off my “TeaMi Tummy” (hey, that should be a hashtag #teamitummy) and am proud of myself for doing the work and not just constantly complaining about it.

Get your 30-Day Detox for 15% OFF at www.teamiblends.com and make sure to get a tumbler! It’s a gamechanger and makes the process so much easier. I’ve done detoxes that I had to cook in a pot and was a slave to  the kitchen for a week. Not convenient!

My Favorite #Tiffirmation

 

Means stop allowing people to walk all over you. Stand up for yourself. Do that thing that scares you. Do the right thing for you. Be authentic. Be audacious. Take risks. Speak up. Live a bold life with intention.

Synonyms: Courage, Bravery.

 

Checking in to see if you have been using yours? Erin Dawn has and just had to share her message from Facebook:

I see your posts and watch you guys on RHOD and think ‘I wish I had that’. My relationship was so unhealthy because God wasn’t first. Then I started watching your videos and got a little bit of courage….and a little bit more until I left that relationship and started loving me. God sent me that person I was meant to be with and he was my best friend first. Thank you Tiffany for teaching me how to love myself. You are truly my angel. Thanks for being beautiful on the inside and out. Thanks for teaching me to ‘use my lady balls’.

I’m sitting here watching the blinking cursor trying to think of something profound to write, but I can’t. I’m just truly in awe- complete chills-up-the-spine, belly flip flop, jaw dropping awe-  of God. He can even use social media as a mission field!

My passion (really it’s an obsession) is for women to drop the fear and pick up more faith, lose the shame and gain more confidence.
I want that for YOU!

What’s Your Vibe?

and so do you.

What are you up to this weekend?

Whatever you do, wherever you go– pay attention to the vibe/energy you allow into your space and decide if it’s right for you. Do you allow other people to suck the life-blood right out of you then moan and groan, whine and complain about how negative they are instead of simply walking away? I get it. I would continually put my hand in the fire over and over like an insane person then wonder why I got burned. It started in childhood. It was confusing because I was both an extroverted lover of people, enjoyed team sports and group activities, but also cherished playing in my room by myself drawing for hours in peace and quiet.

It took years of growth, maturity, gaining respect for myself to set boundaries and learn what it meant to be a hyper-sensitive, feely, empathetic extroverted-introvert. 

But, let’s keep it to energy and save the extroverted-introvert convo for another day. As an empath and sponge to other people’s energy, I had to learn how to consciously choose to either feel or deflect someone’s vibe. Definitely one of the many lessons I learned in LA when you’re dealing with a zillion people everywhere on auditions, walking the streets, traffic, etc. The peaceful hiking trails were even stressful at times because they were crowded with people traffic. For real.

Many allow it to debilitate them, cause major anxiety and even agoraphobia. How about you? Do you need a glass of wine or a Xanax to get out of the house to that huge event? I get that, too. We can take control of this. We can choose to take on someone’s energy or walk away. For years, I was not cognizant of how this effected me physically. Literally, if I allow a negative persons energy to invade my space or spirit– I will get nauseous, maybe a headache, and feel very tired. Pay attention to those who “drain” you!

Raise your awareness of how you feel in your spirit and your physical body when you encounter a toxic person.

Limit your time with them even when it’s a close friend or family member. It can be both a blessing and a burden to be an empath so I’m sharing a few ways to protect yourself: 

WAYS TO PROTECT YOURSELF: 

  • Distance yourself and set boundaries. Negative Nellies love to wallow and set up camp in their misery. Misery loves company so basically tell them to go find some other miserable people to talk to because you are not one of them. Yes, it’s tough love and there is a grace period for listening and wanting to be constructive to our loved ones without getting sucked into their pity party.  Use your #Ladyballs and speak up. I’ve actually told a friend, “you have only 15 minutes and then I’m finished with this topic that you’ve been rehashing for like, eternity already”.. then suggest a lighter fun topic. YOU DECIDE YOUR VIBE.
  • Set aside daily time for self-care. Taking the time to mediate, pray, workout, take a walk, take a bubble bath and fill yourself up with positivity will give you a level of tolerance for the energy vampires, but it also gives you more love and respect for yourself, your time and your space. YOU DECIDE YOUR VIBE.
  • Let go. For years, I tried to take responsibility for other peoples happiness.  Talk about nearly killing myself.  Free yourself from trying to change a negative person. We can’t change people and we are ultimately the insane one if we try to. Period. YOU DECIDE YOUR VIBE.
  • Pray for protection. I’m not perfect and sometimes forget, but I try to make it daily habit to ask God to protect me and cover me with His full armor. (for more go to Ephesians 6:10-18) Especially if I’m going into a place with tons of people. Seriously, we can be assaulted at any moment by a Negative Nellie leaving us needing to run home for a spiritual bath, head spinning and glazed over. Sometimes it’s as simple as walking into an event and whispering the tiny, but powerful prayer “Lord, help me.”  YOU DECIDE YOUR VIBE…and YOUR vibe decides your tribe, too.

 

Are you an empath and found a great way to protect yourself and live life to the full? 

Please share.
