Posted by on Jul 12, 2014 in Healthy Living | Comments Off on A vibrant life starts with your toes…Feet & Weight Loss

Have you ever come home and thought... I can't take another step! I certainly have.  I'm grateful that I was taught early on to nurture and care for my feet. Your feet make up about 25% of all bones in the body. Neural communication from your feet effects the way your muscles react with every step you take too. So if your goal is to remain active and out of pain for many years to come, take a moment and implement at least one of the tips below... Stay Hydrated... If our bodies do not receive enough water to function, we retain extra water....

Weight Loss Challenge: Alkalize Your Body

Posted by on May 15, 2014 in Healthy Living | Comments Off on Weight Loss Challenge: Alkalize Your Body

Maintaining the alkalinity of your body is vital for maximum health. Our blood should be slightly alkaline for proper digestive health, a strong immune system and ultimately a more efficient metabolism. This all creates a healthier body and simplifies weight loss. Normal pH levels fall between 7.35 and 7.45. Neutral pH is 7.0. Anything below 7.0 is considered acidic, and may lead to adverse reactions and make the human body more vulnerable to viruses, bacteria, congestion, inflammation, and disease. There are many things that affect our...

Water is an absolute essential to live. Did you know, that just breathing uses water? I'm sure most of you have heard, you could survive for weeks without food. But only live a few days without water. Our body weight is between 45 to 75 percent water.

It’s a Journey…Not a Destination…Weight Loss

Posted by on May 1, 2014 in Challenge | Comments Off on It’s a Journey…Not a Destination…Weight Loss

If ONLY being healthy and remaining that ideal size were a destination. Many times throughout my life I've wished this and maybe you can relate. No such luck! Maintaining a healthy body is like brushing your teeth, if not done daily they get hairy/slimy (we get weaker &/or heavier) and eventually teeth will fall out (we end up in pain or sick/injured). I was reminded of how this feels - yet again - over the past several months. In the fall, I decided that I was going to compete in my first bodybuilding/bikini contest (I needed a goal!)....

Posted by on May 1, 2014 in Challenge | Comments Off on Weight Loss Challenge: Clean Your Fridge!

Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip Gluten Free Cookies

Posted by on Aug 20, 2013 in Healthy Living | Comments Off on Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip Gluten Free Cookies

Eating Clean is a very important part of healthy living. Probably not news to anyone reading this....right?  However, you may be thinking...ummmmm....healthy living...chocolate cookies????  CONFUSED!Well, total deprivation from Anything Chocolate is not realistic for most of us. At least not most of the people I know. Be comforted in learning that more and more research is supporting the theory that our bodies stay leaner and healthier when we eat clean 80% of the time and just enjoy a little more 20% of the time. A lot of people refer to it...

Calling All Couch Potatoes!

Posted by on Jan 9, 2013 in Healthy Living | Comments Off on Calling All Couch Potatoes!

Let's Get Moving! When "exercise" or the thought of getting "in shape" feels so overwhelming it's paralyzing; it's time to shake it off and start! A great way to start is to focus on creating a habit and just begin to move. An excellent time is while you are watching your favorite TV program! While sitting and watching your favorite show, have two 3- to 5-pound dumbbells (or two bottles of water) on either side of you. When a commercial starts, do 12 reps of one of these moves until the show starts again: shoulder presses, triceps kickbacks,...

Nutrition Certified & Ready to Help YOU!

Posted by on Jan 9, 2013 in Healthy Living | Comments Off on Nutrition Certified & Ready to Help YOU!

Nutrition is a HUGE component to helping us reach our fitness goals, looking fabulous and living a more vibrant life! Some stats I've read say that it is more than 80% of the equation. I agree! I've studied and personally compared many nutrition "plans", fad diets and what not over the years.  I have even exercised twice a day, an hour each, just trying to keep the extra fat from creeping back on. I have been so determined to never again weigh over 200 pounds and feel too tired or uncomfortable to really enjoy life...TRUST ME... it's about...
