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!

Keep believing.

Keep moving forward.

#TBT VLOG // What’s On Your Bucket List?

 

 

 

A precious SOS sista, Michelle Colon-Johnson, shared this old video yesterday and it was actually a message I needed to hear TODAY.  I thought it may inspire you as well.  Take a look:

 

WHAT STEP CAN YOU TAKE TODAY TO MOVE CLOSER TO WHAT YOU LOVE?

 

 

 

 

 

 

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!

A BOOTIE KICKING 6 MONTHS

 

 

Can you believe we are half way through 2017?  It’s exciting because we have 6 more months to kick some serious bootie by December.  Last year was a challenging time for many of us, but I’m sensing this year is a time of rising above, gaining momentum and moving on.

HOW ABOUT YOU?

Are there a few things on your goal list that you haven’t checked off yet? Are you struggling with a few intentions you’ve set? What is holding you back? Are you making choices out of fear or love? Do you play small? 

For the remainder of the year, I challenge us all to be limitless in our thinking and get out of our comfort zone:

    • THINK BIGGER!  If you think small, you achieve little.  Huge risk, Huge reward.
    • EXPAND YOUR VISION!  Look beyond what’s right in front of your face everyday.
    • TAKE ON NEW CHALLENGES! This builds confidence and forces you to grow.
    • PUSH THE BOUNDARIES! Your comfort zone isn’t the Great Wall of China. It’s just in your mind and you can do anything you set your mind to.
    • KARATE KICK YOUR FEARS!  Be like a warrior and kick the crap out of your fears instead of the other way around.
    • DON’T LET ANYTHING OR ANYONE STOP YOU!  Nuff said.
    • TAKE BABY STEPS!  This helps you stay grounded.  Stepping out can cause you to feel off kilter. Taking it slow will keep you balanced.
    • GET OFF THE HAMSTER WHEEL!  Being in your comfort zone can make you feel like you’re going in circles and getting nowhere.
    • STOP MAKING EXCUSES!  Excuses are useless.
    • JUST DO IT!  Once you make up your mind to do something, just get out there and do it already.
Our thoughts are powerful.  We can talk ourselves into, doing or NOT doing, anything. You may say, “I don’t have the money to do this or that or I just don’t have the time”, and trust me- I have used those excuses, but remember, excuses are useless!   They serve no purpose except for keeping you from truly enjoying ALL that life has to offer!   I have learned to feel comfortable being uncomfortable living outside my comfort zone.  Ultimately, it is more uncomfortable for us to stay in the same old, same old.

Group hug and a high five to all of you wise girls who know you are limitless!

 

P.S. There is one spot available in August for my private on-camera confidence coaching bootcamps. Go here for details. Rates and packages will change in the Fall.
