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! 

Turn Your Brain Off

Hey Kindred Spirits!

July is nearly over. So crazy. I just returned from a blissful 4-day trip up to Northern Michigan to visit my besties home state and favorite lakes.

 

Unplugged. (meaning I did not get on a laptop or even an iPad) 

Sat in silence. 

Turned my brain off. 

Had a PJ dance party. 

Dug my toes in the sand. 

Watched ducks. 

Watched the sun set. 

Watched an animated movie.

Kayaked. 

Took a Sunday drive in the rain. 

Sat on a boat. 

Browsed antique shops.

Did not count calories. 

Rarely checked the clock, email, Instagram and totally ignored Facebook. 

 

Shouldn’t life be more like this on a daily basis, not just vacay. This is why we have already planned our next trip to Australia this year. I just stumbled upon a fantastic article that echoes my sentiments 100% and had to share. Be cautious as it’s filled with curse words, but I’m leaving the article as is to respect the author and you know I’m not afraid of a few “punchy” words for emphasis.

 

Written by Janne Robinson for ThoughtCatalog.com // 

The thing that gets the most under my skin is walking around the world and seeing people who have stopped living.

I see them on buses and in restaurants and walking on the street and it fucking devastates me.

It’s fucking miserable.

It’s a club 70% of our world has prescribed to.

I went to shake them and light a fire in their eyes.

You must quit the life you hate to start living.

I was talking with somebody last week about somebody changing careers and they said, “If I was them I would just lie down, take it and work for another 10 years even if I hated it, just to retire. They’re so close. Why start again?”

Every molecule in my being detested those words.

It makes my hackles raise and my mouth froth resent.

Doing the movements–the degree/the debt, the office job, the pension, the mortgage, waking up everyday hating a job you have to work to support the house you didn’t really want to buy and the degree you didn’t really use for the pension you’ll never use because you’ll get a disease from your misery and die before you can enjoy it isn’t living.

Whatever asshole told you that, lied.

I’m sorry—but its all absolute bollux and you need to start again.

Our generation is blessed with living in a world where we can do whatever the hell we want–we can pull jobs out of our assholes and throw pasta on walls.

There are kids pranking their moms on their Youtube channels getting paid 60,000 a video off advertising.

We live in a cool time–are you aware of what we can do, what you can do?

Was I right or was I right? Too good not to share!
Happy Humpday.
Share your 2-cents and have a joy-filled rest of July.

HOW THE POWER OF HABITS CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE by Alli Worthington

 

 

Hey Beautiful Ones,

I happened to open this email a few days ago and just had to share this post with you. So good! As you know from my Winter/Spring video series, I am a diehard believer in healthy routines and habits. Enjoy and love to hear your thoughts so leave a comment!

Love, Tiff 

 

Our small daily habits add up to our success or failure in areas of life. Understanding and mastering our habits (the big ones and the small ones) is a key secret of success.

There are truths I’ve come to realize about habits, whether they are considered good or bad habits, and whether people are trying to start new habits or shed undesirable ones.

If you’re looking to make change in your life, these six truths are sure to help.

 

1. BABY STEPS ADD UP

When trying to change a habit, the cold turkey approach is most often a recipe for frustration. I find that little itty bitty incremental shifts in behaviors is usually a far better way to ensure long-term change.

For example, if you want to incorporate more exercise into your life, you don’t need to say, “I’m going to join a gym and go for an hour every morning before work.” Instead start easily, such as resolving to walk around the block every evening and doing 5 sit-ups. Baby steps!


2. BUILDING ON ACHIEVEMENTS CREATES MOMENTUM

Once you start changing a habit with baby steps, you can build on that success. That walk around the block becomes too short, so you extend it to the next block. You find you don’t stop at 5 sit-ups, you keep going and add a couple more.

It’s all about momentum; an object in motion tends to stay in motion, both literally and figuratively. Once change is kicked into gear, more change happens!


3. AVOIDING TRIGGERS IS CRITICAL

Actions often happen as reactions to an event, situation, or other stimuli; habits are often prompted by an outside trigger. Recognizing what these triggers are can go a long way towards changing your behavior.

For example, want to stop gossiping? Maybe skip that coffee date that seems to revolve around who’s doing what in the neighborhood.

Want to stop snacking at night while you watch TV? Maybe read a book in a different room instead of turning on that sitcom. (I know, I know, easier said than done!)

 

4. BE MINDFUL AND AWARE

Do you reach for the sugar packets every time you have a latte, without even considering going without? Be aware of your actions and realize that you do have the choice to skip the sugar.

As you go through your day cognizant of what you are doing and the choices you have, you’ll likely be surprised at how much you do on a daily basis goes unnoticed because it’s second nature.


5. BELIEVE IN YOUR CALLING

Know that as you are living out your calling, through the power of Jesus, you are capable of achieving whatever it is you are called to do. You can conquer those bad habits, and you can adopt those good ones. But the entire house of cards can fall down if you don’t start with a solid foundation of confidence in your God-given ability to do so.


6. EMBRACE (LITTLE) FAILURES

What? Failure? Include it? Yes. If you aren’t failing now and again, then you aren’t challenging yourself. The person who never risks anything obviously isn’t going to fail, because they are playing it safe. Failure is just a stepping stone on the way to success!

Real change can’t happen if you don’t push yourself, and pushing yourself means potential failure on occasion. Fight the urge to be a perfectionist and allow the road to be a little bumpy on the way to your destination.

 

There you go. Six truths about the power of habits in your life that help you find success. Which truth about habits resonated with you? Let me know in the comments.

And if you found this article helpful, please share it with your friends!

GO BLAZE, Baby!

 

BAMMMMM.

The falling down part, the struggle, the strain, the humility, the stretching, the minor disappointment…ugh, your light has been temporarily dimmed. You can feel it. Like one of those dimmer switches, your light is not it’s highest wattage.

 

But, it’s the refusing to give up…

choosing to rise,

choosing to brush yourself off,

choosing to learn the lesson,

choosing to shine again,

and allowing it to empower you to step forward into your next level of greatness is what true success is all about. Who feels me?

 

We are the Phoenix:
1. A bird in Egyptian mythology that lived in the desert for 500 years and then consumed itself by fire, laterto rise renewed from its ashes.
2. A person or thing of unsurpassed excellence or beauty.
___________________________________________

Life circumstances and horrible choices have nearly killed me, literally.  Back in the day, I have been in such a dark hole and have done random drugs with random people I didn’t know. I should be dead and certainly never thought I would see the light again much less strive to be full of love and light. We can’t have the light without the dark. Warmth without the cold. Highs without the lows.

Embrace those seasons you don’t feel so shiny and sparkly because thats when your are being refined and purified.

The embers are becoming a flame.

GO BLAZE, BABY!
