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 Diet Has Gone To Bootcamp

 

“Your body starts falling apart at 45.”

“Oh, just get used to that pooch below your belly button aka meno-pot.”

 

That’s what I keep hearing from women lately and no disrespect, but I’m not buying what you’re selling ladies. There are plenty of women out there over 50 who are living healthy, fit, vibrant lives. I’m choosing that route. Life is all about choices.

As you all know, I had some health issues last year due to stress which made my endocrine system, thyroid, adrenal glands and kidneys to start shutting down. For my 45th bday, I started the journey to balance my hormones and get my health under control. It has taken a lot of work, research, trial and error. Our health is everything and I intend to be more aware and diligent than ever after the years of abusing my body with harmful behaviors.

Ok, back to the topic of choices and changes.

Over the past year of working on my hormones and metabolism, I figured I would fluctuate a few pounds NOT 8-10! On a smaller framed gal, that’s the difference in a few jean sizes and I’m sorry– But, I have some really cute pants I would prefer fitting into than going shopping for bigger sizes. If you follow me on Instagram, you know I love to workout. It keeps me sane as well as fit. How frustrating to work out daily and keep gaining. GRRRRRR!

By the end of April this year I was feeling much better than I did last year. I implemented regular detoxes with TeaMi Teas to keep my gut and organs healthy as well as cutting way back on the weekly glasses of wine. But…DANG IT, the scale kept going up!

I’ve never been a big scale user because of dealing with mild eating disorders during my modeling days. I would get obsessed or fixated with a certain number which became unhealthy, but it is the best method to gauge our results. Usually I would go by the way my clothes fit, but let’s face it– I live in really stretchy jeans. Not the most accurate way to gauge your weight. When you workout regularly, eat clean and cut out the booze and you’re still not losing–

complete disappointment, hair pulling, slamming the fridge door, a few curse words and utter frustration!

I believe in inviting God into every single aspect of our life and I began seeking Him for  answers and healing. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been led to several remedies. Thank you Lord!!  The military diet is one of them.

 

DISCLOSER: If you have medical issues, please advise your physician before starting any diet program. I am simply sharing my experiences and do not claim that this will work or be safe for everyone. Please do your own research before trying  any program.

 

The Military Diet is a combination of low calorie, chemically compatible foods designed to work together and jump start your weight loss. Because the diet is 3 days on and 4 days off, it doesn’t slow down your metabolism like other diets. It’s a type of intermittent fasting with 4 days off eating your normal healthy diet. I started this last week and was surprised how doable and simple it was.

Of course, I was a bit HANGRY the first day, but I woke up on day 2 feeling really good. Over the 3 days, I lost 3.5 pounds. WooHoo! I’m sure half of that was fluid and water weight, but that’s ok. After the scale not budging for 4 months, I was thrilled to find something that was effective.

The past 4 days off I have enjoyed my green smoothies, salad with chicken breasts, soups and favorite healthy snacks. During the 3 days on, I realized I had been snacking way too much so I got back to using the app called LOSE IT. It’s a great way to log your meals, snacks and workouts to help stick to your program. I will not weigh myself again until the weekend. It can be discouraging to weigh yourself daily so choose one day a week at the same time of the day every time. I prefer first thing in the morning and butt naked. Just sayin! Today, I begin round 2 of the 3-day diet and I’m actually looking forward to it. Call me cray! Here’s what today looks like: 

 

I’m no a fan of the word “diet”, but it is what it is. The Military Diet is free and I encourage you to learn more about how it works before starting it. Ok, I’m off to have my toast, peanut butter and half of a grapefruit. We have to change things up if we want results. What’s the saying, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results” and that’s exactly how I was feeling over the past few months. Insane! I’m seeing sanity in the very near future. Yay!

Cheers to change and better choices!

NEW 6-WEEK LIFESTYLE VIDEO SERIES: Week 1 Detox with TeaMi

 

teami_launch

 

Do YOU want to feel better?

Do YOU want to look better?

Do YOU want to do better?

 

If you raised your hand and answered YES then you’re in the right place, my sista! We can dress it up all day long, but if you don’t feel good, if you’re fatigued and foggy headed, no amount of makeup, botox and designer clothing can make you feel good. Ok, ok… maybe for like 24 hours, but the high from the instant gratification wears off quick. We hear the mantra “beauty from the inside out” everywhere and you may think it’s redundant, but it’s not. It’s pure, simple, in your face– truth.

What’s the point of rockin’ a killer outfit if you’re achy, moody, exhausted, anxious and have a lackluster complexion?

After the years of sharing all my style tips on video I’ve decided to do the same with the long list of lifestyle tips that I’ve only shared here on the blog. Why did I decide to do this? Because when I coach and mentor women, the first thing we focus on is their daily routine specifically their morning routine. I’m shocked to hear how many ladies are not setting up their body, mind + spirit for a successful day. (No, a cup of coffee is NOT breakfast!!!) So, we’re starting with your AM routine. Ready?

I’ll launch a new video every TUESDAY for the next 6-Weeks. ((Happy Dance)) I would love to hear your feedback along the way and if you’re implementing any of these tips. I admit I got a bit lazy and indulged WAY too much over the holidays and gained a few lbs so I’m kicking my own bootie and getting back in gear.

The theme of this series is all about “feeling good so you look good and then you’ll get out there and do good”. Ya wanna?

I’m kicking off week 1 with the amazing and effective 30-Day Detox I mentioned around Thanksgiving by TeaMi Blends. Why start with this topic? Because our organs need to be cleansed of all the toxins in order to function properly! That’s why it’s called a deTOX. This process is vital to kickstart any weightloss program and set yourself up for success. I’ve been drinking the Skinny TeaMi in the morning and then throughout the day when I have a really busy schedule to keep my energy up!

GOT A BRICK IN YOUR TUMMY?

teamidetox88

 

If you’re like me and love to enjoy a bit of indulging during the holidaze, then join me for the TeaMi Blends 30 day detox program. After Thanksgiving, I felt like I had a brick sitting in my stomach. How about you? I felt bloated, lethargic and heavy. You look down and see nothing but a poochie belly. I cursed at my skinny jeans and opted for stretchy leggings. Not pretty, folks. A detox was exactly what I needed. If you have been with me here on SOS for some time then you know I’m a firm believer in doing a detox/ cleanse a few times a year. The last cleanse I did was great, but it was so much work to steep the pot of tea and take all these droppers. It was time consuming and I wanted to quit after the 3rd day. I felt like I couldn’t go far from the house! TeaMi has a great travel tumbler so you can take your tea with you.

After doing some research, I found Teami and read through all the positive reviews. Here we are! I am only on day 2 and already feeling lighter. My energy increased and the bloat has started to go down. Hallelujah! I’m looking forward to saying hello to my favorite skinny jeans in a week or so.

Here is a quick explanation: 

 

 

TeaMi Detox will completely change how your body looks and feels in just 30 days! It’s completely GMO Free, Gluten Free, Dairy Free and Sugar Free:
  • Boost your metabolism
  • Start burning stored fat
  • Calms muscle spasms and muscle tightness
  • Naturally raise energy levels
  • Detox your internal organs
  • Reduce bloating
  • Improve skin complexion
  • Flush out harsh toxins
  • Fix digestive issues

DEBUNKING DETOX: Look Good, Feel Good, Do Good

lookgood

Hey 2016- you’re looking mighty sexy from here!

Who is ready to look, feel and do better than they did last year? If you answered with a loud YES with your hand waving in the air then you’re in the right spot. For the month of January, I go into a nesting and cleansing mode. It’s important to me to dedicate the first month of the year to getting prepared. I have GRAND plans for 2016 and want to clear the appropriate spaces for the GREATNESS to come.

Who needs to clear some clutter and cobwebs?

Why carry last years BS into the new year!?

I cleanse my mind by reading and journaling my thoughts on the changes I plan to make. I cleanse my body and detox. (I’m on Day 10 of no alcohol) I cleanse my house by throwing out the clutter. I cleanse my spirit by listening to powerful spiritual leaders and focusing on my connection to God. December felt like one big party so I decline invitations this month without guilt. Who else is partied out? I’m ready to get to work and I’m not just referring to job and career. Working on yourself and investing in you is the best work you can put in!

You all know I went through a major detox a few months ago. People were both interested and scratching their heads at my plan. A few people even laughed at me! I look at it as a much needed tune up! We can’t look, think, do and feel our best if our body is running on fumes and breaking down. I also wanted to understand the true meaning of a detox and found this article. Take it all with a grain of salt! Knowledge is power:

HAPPY KIDNEYS: I’m A New Woman!

FullSizeRender-46

Are you sick of hearing about my detox yet? Well, sista– this is the final and most important post about it so please listen up. I mentioned about three weeks ago in the post about rebounding  that I was dealing with some crazy fatigue. My holistic doc found out I was dealing with several issues. Immediately, he put me on a detox program and let me tell you- today, I feel like a new woman! WooHoo! My energy is back and that fog has lifted from my brain. Feels good to be able to put together a complete sentence again- LOL! The weekend I completed the detox, I embarked on one of the busiest work and event weeks that I’ve had this year -complete with a quick job in LA- and I felt amazing. I was worried I wouldn’t have the stamina to pull it all off, but I DID IT!  God works in mysterious ways and I was able to walk barefoot on the beach (for the negative ions…also recommended by my doc) on the final day of my detox. The above photo was how I was greeted in Santa Monica. #BlessedAndHealthy

I am passionate about giving you ladies style tips so you look great, but if you don’t feel strong, healthy, sharp and energetic then the fab clothes really don’t do much. When you feel good, you look good and you go out into the world and do good! 

At the end of October, I slowly eased into the detox by starting just a few things my doc recommended. It’s too shocking to our body to start off with everything at once. I began cutting back on meats and eating much cleaner/organic. I added rebounding and dry brushing daily to stimulate my lymphatic system, cut back on coffee (grrrrrr!!) to one cup in the morning instead of two and stopped drinking alcohol. The second week, I added daily juicing to the regimen. I love the Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain because it’s easy to use and clean up.  For this detox, I used primarily veggies and no fruits to cut back on the sugar. Beets and carrots have a lot of sugar so I would use one or the other and not both at the same time. If you just cannot deal with the “earthy” flavor, add a small apple for sweetness.

kidney-detox

The final and most important part of the detox was the 5-Day Kidney Detox by Dr. Schulze.  I admit to being a bit nervous about it, but it really wasn’t that bad! Drinking lemon water was already part of my morning routine so that was easy although I had to drink 2-3 times more than normal with added cayenne. Sipped on a delicious tea throughout the day and that’s about it. You also need to plan it during a week that you can keep a light schedule because you pee a zillion times a day as your body is getting rid of the toxins. I read the book that came in the packet and realize now how important our kidneys are. Knowledge is power!

5_day_Kidney_Detox

1.Your kidneys clean ALL of the blood in your body EVERY HOUR!

2.Your kidneys balance your body’s fluid levels, stopping water retention, as well as dehydration.

3.Hypertension is the #1 reason Americans die of heart attacks and strokes. Your kidneys regulate your blood pressure!

4.Your kidneys are responsible for the assimilation of vitamins into your bloodstream.

5.Your kidneys regulate and control the production of red blood cells, which carry oxygen to every cell in your body.

 

“Every organ in your body DEPENDS on your kidneys staying healthy and strong. In fact, all the cells in your body need nutrition brought IN and waste eliminated OUT, and they need your KIDNEYS to do this!

Your kidneys weigh about five ounces each and are roughly the same size as your fist, but they filter 96 GALLONS of your blood EVERY DAY!” –Dr. Schulze
