Make them jealous!


It is so easy to want to give up. Just remember, all great things take time.

From personal experience and tons of research, losing weight slowly will help you keep it off and will keep you from gaining more weight in the future.

Losing it fast is never healthy and it's best to lose weight slowly. I'd say it's best to lose about 1-2 pounds per week. That's what I've done and I was able to lose a total of 78 pounds and I've kept it off for 4 years. I still have a ways to go before I reach my goal weight, but I am slowly getting there.

I am a health and wellness coach, this is what I do. I help others with not only their weight loss goals, but their health and wellness goals too. I will post soon about my journey so far, so please check back soon for that.

Connect with me on Facebook!

Just a little fun and motivation! Plus a small update...


It's been awhile since I have posted anything in here, so I thought I would share this with you all.

How are you all doing? I've lost another 3 pounds, bringing my total weight loss to 78 pounds! If you'd like to become my weight loss buddy, please message me to my inbox.

Why I've been absent....


Hello everyone. I just wanted to post a little update to let you all know why I haven’t posted much on here. I have been battling with my health this past week, so I have been resting up so I can be of better help and use to others. If I don’t take care of myself, I can’t help other people, which is what my mission in life is.
I appreciate each and every one of you for sticking with me through everything. I will try to get some new stuff posted soon. If you have any suggestions or requests, please don’t hesitate to ask.

My first book review!!!!


My Book review for Her Silent Cry by Cheryl Jimenez
What is this book about?:
Her Silent Cry is a true and powerful story about a woman who thought she met the man of her dreams but ended up in the hands of a monster.
For 22 years, Cheryl lived in fear for her life and the life of her four children. On a daily basis, Cheryl and her children lived with domestic violence and abuse. She had no where to turn and no where to go.
She fought for the strength to leave. After finally escaping her abuser, she did what ever she had to do, to give her and her children a peaceful and happy life.
Cheryl's mission in life is to raise awareness to help the victims of domestic violence and abuse. She wrote this book in honor of all the victims of this horrendous act and to help as many victims get out safely and away from the hands of their abusers.
What did you like about this book?:
The author didn’t go into graphic detail about her experiences. But she did write about the amount of physical and mental abuse she suffered. She even mentioned some of the things her children faced. she delves into how she got out safely and what her current mission in life is.
What didn’t you like about this book?:
I thought it could have been a little longer but I still enjoyed reading it. I honestly can’t think of much that I didn’t like about it.
Who should read this book?:
I think this book is age appropriate for all ages. Women, children and even men. Anyone that is suffering from domestic violence and abuse. I honestly think that the more people read this book, the chances of victims getting out safely will increase. The Author is really an inspiration.

Simple Weight Loss Tips


We all know that weight loss is only sustainable with a lifestyle change. Try to incorporate these tips into your daily habits, and watch the pounds melt away.

1. Weight vs. fat: know the difference!
Remember that while a pound of fat and a pound of muscle weigh the same, muscle takes up a lot less room in your clothes. Don’t be afraid to gain muscle weight. Adding more muscle will also raise your metabolism and keep your body-fat percentage low.

2. Throw out the scales.
Don’t be so attached to a number. Instead, measure your BMI and take measurements with measuring tape. Scales can often be deceiving. For example, if you are dehydrated, you may see the numbers drop, but you haven’t really lost any fat. Instead, base your success on measurements and how well your clothes fit.

3. Check progress weekly rather than daily.
Weekly check-ins provide a more accurate picture of your actual progress. If you check your weight or measurements daily, you may become discouraged at the lack of progress. Set weekly instead of daily weight-loss goals to keep on track.

4. Not all calories are created equal.
You will lose more weight if you eat three 70-calorie eggs instead of a candy bar, even if the calorie count is the same. The eggs will regulate insulin and not cause your blood sugar to spike. The extra protein will also help keep you feel full longer. The candy bar will do the exact opposite and can cause you to pack on the pounds. It’s not just calories in and calories out, it’s the kind of calories you put in and how your body processes them that helps you reach your weight-loss goals.

5. Understand the science of metabolism.
Realize that our BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) and your RMR (Resting Metabolic Rate) are different when it comes down to the numbers. Your BMR is truly your metabolic rate if you just slept all day. Your RMR is your metabolic rate if you laid in bed, but ate meals, and had small activities like moving around your home. Calculating your RMR is probably a more realistic base platform when you’re trying to look at calories burned. Once you have this information, you can better calculate your total caloric loss when adding in exercise and meal plan information.

6. Apps can help you keep track of food intake.
Many apps help you manage your meal plans and exercise. These apps also help you network with other people and create accountability. My personal favorite is myfitnesspal, simply due to its ease of use. Also, the fact that you can scan the UPC codes of items that you are eating to automatically pull them up is quite handy. However, there are many apps out there. Just find one that works best for you, and use it as a tool to manage your diet.

7. Buddy up!
Having someone else keep you on track is key. It can be a trainer, family, or friends. Just knowing that someone else is going to ask you about your meal plan or exercise goals often helps you to resist temptations and procrastination. Even better, having a workout partner who will meet and work out with you will further ensure success.

8. Intensity matters more than time.
Slogging away on that treadmill for an hour at an easy walk may not be your best option for losing weight. One study found that obesity odds decreased by 5% for women and 2% for men for every additional minute of high-intensity exertion.

9. Eat whole foods over processed food.
Your body understands the chemistry of real food and utilizes it much better. However, when you add processed foods into the mix, you usually are adding more sugar, sodium, chemicals, and refined carbohydrates. Keep your diet to whole, unprocessed foods, and you should see a huge difference in your waistline.

10. Reduce your sugar intake.
Eating too much sugar impacts upon your insulin levels. Insulin unlocks your cells to allow sugar to enter. However, if more sugar enters your cells than is needed, the excess energy accumulates as fat.

11. Don’t drink your calories.
Carbonated beverages are often loaded with sugar. Those “empty” calories can add up quickly, without giving you the satisfaction of being full.

12. Don’t neglect weight training.
Adding muscle, through activities such as weight training, increases your metabolism and fights fat. Lifting weights also helps to strengthen your bones, improve balance, and regulate your blood sugar.

13. Remember small habits, and small plates, add up.
Smaller plates often equal smaller portion sizes, thus reducing your daily caloric intake. Try swapping out your regular dinner plates for a smaller design.

14. Get plenty of sleep.
If you don’t feel rested, you may be tempted to turn to sugary snacks to get your through the day. There is a strong connection between sleeping disorders and weight gain. So make sure to turn in at a decent time and make sleep a priority if you are trying to drop pounds.

15. Reduce stress.
During stressful periods, many people turn to food to help them cope. Try to use other forms of stress reduction, such as exercise or meditation, to help you manage life’s difficulties.

16. Always have healthy snacks available.
If “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” this could not be more true than in the case of diet regulation. Not having healthy snacks around can certainly cause the pounds to pile on. Most refined foods also have that extra perk of being convenient: you just open a box or bag. Plan ahead and have healthy snacks available to reach for instead of junk food when you don’t feel like putting energy into food prep.

17. Reduce how often you eat out, and eat at home more.
Average American households spend 40% of their food budget on eating out. One study found that each meal or snack eaten outside of the home increases the caloric intake by 134 calories. While it is possible to eat out and stay healthy, most people do not choose healthy foods when they eat their meals outside of the home.

18. Allow yourself a cheat day.
If you feel constantly deprived, you may give up on your goals. It’s OK to cheat every now and then if it helps you stick to your healthy lifestyle for the long term. Moderation is key.

19. Reward yourself with activities or clothes instead of food.
While you may have grown up getting ice cream as a reward, you can move away from that now. Instead, get a pedicure, buy yourself a present, or go out with friends. You don’t have to add extra calories to your day to celebrate.

20. Cut out commercials; they make you want junk food.
Time in front of the TV usually doesn’t include a lot of calorie burning, unless you put it in front of a treadmill or are doing an exercise video. Food commercials are everywhere, and they are designed to make you want to eat. If you limit your TV time, you will find your snacking will often be limited along with it.

21. Don’t have junk food accessible.
If it’s not in your house, it takes a lot more effort to go get it. Clean out your cupboard, fridge, and freezer of all the foods that will sabotage your weight-loss goals.

22. Don’t be afraid of healthy fat.
Contrary to the low-fat movements of the past, healthy fats do not cause weight gain. Don’t be afraid to eat coconuts, avocados, or nuts. Eating whole, natural foods in their raw form will help fill you up without adding on the pounds.

23. Have heart-to-hearts with your saboteurs.
Do you have that friend who brings you donuts on a bad day? Does you spouse bring a potato chip bag to bed? Get them on board with your weight-loss goals, and tell them to bring you an apple instead.

24. Write down your goals.
Sometimes, just the act of writing down your goals helps you maintain them. Make sure to put your goals in a place where you can see them every day. It will help you stay committed during the weight-loss journey.

25. Stay hydrated.
Often, our body will send signals that we are hungry when we are actually dehydrated. Drinking plenty of water will help you feel less hungry throughout the day. If you do get hit with a snack attack, try drinking a large glass of water first and waiting about 30 minutes. You may find all your body needed was a little hydration.

Did you know this about Pickle Juice?!?


At first I thought this was funny because of the picture but WOW!! I had no idea.

Did you know this about Pickle Juice?

PICKLE JUICE: Who Knew!?! Glad I Do Now... As kids we were told not to drink it. LOL

Post-Workout Drink:
Forget coconut water. Athletes swear by pickle juice's scientifically proven benefits to exercise recovery. In one 2010 study, pickle juice halted post-workout muscle cramps in 85 seconds. That, plus its electrolyte-restoring powers has even yielded Pickle Juice Sport - a dill-flavored sports drink. But really, most athletes stick to good old Vlasic!

PMS Remedy:
For those same reasons, pickle juice is widely used as a cure for menstrual cramps. It may also prevent you from eating four bags of potato chips in one day. Not that we ever did that. That was a friend.

Potato Pick-Me-Up:
Add a heavy splash of pickle juice to a pot of simple boiled potatoes for a fantastic side dish. The flavors absorb so perfectly you won't want to add salt, butter, sour cream, or anything to these taters once you're done. Making potato salad? Skip the mayo, and toss with veggies and pickle juice for a much healthier (and more flavorful) version.

Pickleback Shot:
Odds are you've seen this cocktail on a bar menu sometime in the last couple years (lore has it they were first sold out of a London food truck in 2011). Perhaps you scoffed or called it a fad, but the truth is bartenders claim this to be the perfect complement to whiskey, instantly soothing the taste buds and aftershock of a rough liquor. Order one, and you will order five. For bonus points, follow that up with a Pickletini.

Hangover Cure:
If you can stomach it on a hangover tummy, pickle juice is a known folk remedy that actually works. It replenishes your depleted sodium levels and helps to assist in rehydration. In many countries, people even take a shot of pickle juice before going out to help prevent dehydration in the first place.

Vinegar Replacement:
Pickle juice works in place of vinegar in salad dressing, soups, or virtually any recipe. It is essentially vinegar on steroids.

Heartburn Cure:
Along with its flavor-boosting benefits, pickle juice seems to have the same health effects as straight-up vinegar. Particularly effective as a heartburn soother, pickle juice may also help to avoid blood-sugar spikes if taken with a meal.

Bloody Mary Booster:
On the not-as-healthy-but-just-as-important side of the spectrum, pickle juice is absolutely dynamite in a Bloody Mary. When its hangover-killing benefits combine with a little hair of the dog, nothing could make your Sunday morning any greater. Except cronuts.

Cleaning Agent:
Food industry insiders have been using pickle juice to clear blackened copper pans for years. It also works well as a grill cleaner, making those charred, crusted-on bits much easier to scrape off.

Dill Pickle Bread:
Make this. Make it now.

Pickle Popsicles:
True, you can buy these on pickleaddicts.com (actual, real thing), but you can also just pour some of this glorious nectar into pop molds, paper cups, or ice-cube trays and make your own savory summer snack.

Re-Pickler:
Or maybe you just want some more pickles? Empty your vegetable drawer and throw some onions, carrots, peppers, whatever, into the jar of leftover pickle juice. Let them sit for a few days and BOOM: new pickles!

Meat Tenderizer & Marinade:
Pickle juice has amazing meat-tenderizing abilities and, as a marinade, will add a ton of flavor to your meats, without the extra cals in heavy sauces or marinades. It works exceptionally well on chicken - some claim a skinless breast soaked overnight in pickle juice will taste like fried chicken when cooked, and we say that is voodoo but we're okay with it. Try it on cuts of pork and beef, too.

Fish Poacher:
There is very little in this world that sounds more healthy-boring than poached fish. But, add your pickle juice to the poaching water and you will never look back.

Weed Killer:
The high vinegar and salt content of pickle juice has made it a longtime favorite with gardeners. Dumping it on dandelions, thistle, and virtually all common weeds that crop up around your home. Bonus, it's pet-friendly and you probably already have it in your fridge!

Recipe Add-On:
We lost track of all the things you can add pickle juice to, but some favorites include: BBQ sauce, hummus, chicken salad, mac 'n' cheese, gazpacho, deviled eggs, vinaigrette, borscht, beet salad, salsa, bean dip, sauerbraten, and meatloaf.

Hiccup Stopper:
We've found little scientific evidence backing up this claim (and, frankly, we're glad the scientists are working on other things), but many, many people claim that the number-one cure for hiccups is a small glass of pickle juice. Given how well this stuff works on everything else in the world, we believe it.

Apple Cinnamon Fat Flush Water recipe


My FAVORITE water recipe EVER!

Cinnamon and Apples are a natural metabolism booster and this will be a great drink to help you detoxify!

Here’s what you’ll need:
2 apples- whatever kind you like ( I like gala apples)
2 cinnamon sticks
1 large water pitcher or jug
Slice up your apples and place them in a jug with 2 of the sticks.
Fill up to the top with water.
Let infuse over night.
You can also try boiling the apple and cinnamon before putting it in your water infuser or jug, it really releases the flavor more, then just add it to ice! This will also move up the process if you forgot to do it at night and want to have that day.
You can refill with water 3-4 times before throwing out the apple and cinnamon sticks and starting over.
Drink a whole jug or pitcher a day! Enjoy!
(I have never boiled it myself, but great idea)
