WHY SHOULD YOU DO REGULAR DETOXES? [New Video]

 

Hello Gorgeous!

How are you feeling today? Are you full of energy, well rested, focused, upbeat mood, have a flat belly with clear skin? WooHoo– if you answered yes. If not, you may want to consider eliminating the toxins in your body. I know many of you cringe when you hear “cleanse” or “detox”, but when you feel the amazing results from it you will change your mind.

In today’s video, I share how taking my holistic doctors advice of doing periodic detoxes over the past year has helped me over come fatigue, sleeping trouble, weak immune system, a clogged lymphatic system, adrenal fatigue and hormonal imbalance.

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!

Green Protein Smoothie Update

 

Hey Gorgeous Girl!

Curious, what did you think of my recent lifestyle series?

Have you implemented anything I shared?

What about the green protein smoothie?

Adding this to my morning routine was truly life changing. As I mentioned in the video, I am constantly trying different protein powders in search of the best fit for my taste buds and nutritional needs.

HELLO VEGA!

Since the video, many of you have messaged about protein powders. Over the past month, I keep going back to the Vega One All-In-One Nutritional Shake because it has really clean ingredients, it tastes great and blends smoothly (not chalky!). I love the chocolate flavor. I will admit the Vanilla Chai flavor is, well, just skip it. Trust me. All the Vega products are available on Amazon and it’s at most groceries stores even Target.

Here’s the deets:

  • All-in-one plant-based protein powder made from real, whole food ingredients
  • 20g of premium, plant based protein from pea, hemp, SaviSeed, and flax for a complete amino acid profile
  • 50% daily intake of vitamins and minerals from broccoli, kale, spirulina, strawberries, and more
  • 25% daily fiber, 1.5 Grams omega-3s, probiotics, and antioxidants
  • Non-Gmo project verified, vegan certified, low-glycemic, gluten-free, and made without dairy or soy ingredients

 

 

Try it and let me know what you think!
If you have added the green smoothie to your AM routine, leave a comment and let me know about the benefits you are experiencing!

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:

Amazing Project..Grateful to be part of!

I was asked to be part of an amazing project by The Laughing Cow Cheese Company.  They chose 5 women bloggers from all over the US to tape a 4 minute webisode on what they are passionate about.   I discussed my passion to help teenage girls and the empowerment day camps I want to start!   The campaign starts April 4th (my daddy’s bday) and runs through mid-July on marieclaire.com, redbook.com and goodhousekeeping.com.  DECA.TV shot it and Jill Simonian hosted..amazing day with an amazing crew!  This experience really lit a fire in me to get these camps going.  We had a blast with the girls and believe they enjoyed it too!  It was a very blessed day…
