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!

MOTIVATE: Burn Fat Instead of Adding Fluff This Holiday

holiday-cookies-carbs-420x420

Who’s slacking off from their workouts lately? ME! The chill & drizzle has put a damper on my outdoor power walks and I’m not a big fan of the treadmill. There are chocolate chip cookies in a holiday tin calling my name from the kitchen counter and I’ll be decorating sugar cookies tonight with my bestie and her triplets. Because of all the festivities and lack of motivation to workout, it’s easy to add some holiday fluff so that means we start the new year busting out of our skinny jeans. We don’t have to give in! Being mindful of the amount of sweets we’re eating and making the effort to snack on more fat burning foods will keep us feeling healthy and fit during this time of indulgence! I’ll do more indoor workouts from my playlist on YouTube as well even though it’s easier to curl up on the couch. M O T I V A T E!

Here are 10 fat burning foods to stock up on:

1) Almonds with skins: Reduces cravings and builds muscle.

2) Salmon & Tuna: Fires up fat burning and makes you feel full longer.

3) Peanut Butter: Burns fat and builds muscle.

4) Spinach &Dark Green Veggies: Improves workout recovery, burns fat & fights free radicals.

5) Green tea: Fires up fat burning.

6) Eggs: Builds muscle & burns fat.

7) Grapefruit: Regulates blood sugar and metabolism. Lowers insulin. There’s nothing better than a fresh Ruby Red grapefruit, but my hubby & I also love the Del Monte Sunfresh slices with no added sugar for ease.

8) Chili Peppers & Cayenne Powder: Revs up metabolism.

9) Whole grains (quinoa, brown rice, whole grain cereals): Prevents the body from storing fat in small servings. These Eat Chia Bites are a perfect snack made with quinoa, brown rice & chia. (They will be in the stocking stuffer giveaway!!)

10) Berries: Prevents cravings.

Not only will these foods burn fat, but they will help prevent that lethargic feeling we get from high sugar & high carb holiday treats! Allow yourself to enjoy the season just add in more of these healthy foods to balance things out.

Wishing you a beautifully blessed week ahead!

What are your traditions? Please share! 

We’ll announce the SOS Stocking Stuffer Winners on Christmas Eve.

NO MORE MUFFIN TOP!

WATCH TO FIND OUT HOW TO SAY BYE BYE MUFFIN TOP! 

This is a longer video- approx 12 minutes-  with actual exercises so watch when you have the time…

Are you serious about joining us on this CHALLENGE to get swimsuit ready by 4th of July?

Come on…like the Nike ad says, “JUST DO IT”.  You’ll not only look better in your bikini, but you will walk with more confidence, have better posture and feel stronger!

We’ve all packed too much into our days, but it’s vital you put yourself first when it comes to your health, wellness and fitness.  I found if I write my workout in my calendar just as I would an important meeting, then I am more likely to get it done!   For the times you can’t make it to your fav pilates, yoga or spin class…my sis, Natalie gives us 7 EASY BUT EFFECTIVE EXERCISES that we can do in the privacy of our own living room in the comfort of our PJ’s.

  1. Forearm Plank with Hip Dip- Core
  2. Forearm Plank with Knee To Elbow- Oblique/Core
  3. Standing Knee To Elbow- Oblique
  4. Overhead Pilates Sit Up- Total Core
  5. Seated Half Pigeon- Glutes
  6. Lunges with Butt Squeeze- Legs/ Glutes
  7. Plie Sqats- Total Leg & Glutes

It’s great to incorporate these core, glute and leg exercises in addition to your current workout routine! 

They only take 15-20 minutes..hey, we can spend that much time browsing Facebook or watching mindless Reality TV (yes, I’m including myself in that statement)…

LET’S DO THIS FOR OURSELVES GIRLS!  NO MORE EXCUSES!


Do you live a life WELL LAUGHED?

You can have all the money in the world, but without your HEALTH…you can’t enjoy it!   Let’s join together in bringing awareness to health & wellness initiatives in our communities!   My own personal mission is to give teenage girls the tools they need to live happy, healthy, empowered lives.  These girls are the Mothers of our future and I feel I have a responsibility to educate them on healthy eating choices, the importance of exercise and how to nurture their Spirits.

I am honored to be one of the five bloggers chosen to be part of THE LAUGHING COW: Live A Life Well Laughed Project.   We had a blast on the day of taping and I was surprised with a chance to try out the curriculum I’m developing for an EMPOWERMENT DAY CAMP!    Teens are the toughest crowd and I have to admit I was a tad nervous, but totally in my element and the girls were very receptive!    I am so grateful to Bel Brands for giving me this opportunity!

This project gives The Laughing Cow & Mini Babybel cheese lovers a chance to help families live a healthy lifestyle.   With your help, The Laughing Cow will donate up to $500,000 to health and wellness initiatives.

How you can help families with your snacking:
Through July 15,  go online and enter the UPC code found on the outside of  the packaging of The Laughing Cow Wedges or Mini Babybel.   Every time you enter a code, $1 is donated to wellness programs!  Visit www.LifeWellLaughed.com to learn more about how your snacking can support communities.  Join us in celebrating a “Life Well Laughed!”
