30 Days to Better Health: Take the 180 Challenge

My jeans are finally fitting better. I have more energy. I feel better from the inside out.

Last year I purposed to take care of myself.  I ate more veggies, drank more water, supplemented with a high quality multivitamin, consumed less processed foods, drank a natural, non GMO protein smoothee and exercised more.  I lost 15 pounds and I gained more energy, got off my allergy meds and just felt great!

Then for the last 6 months our family has been on an amazing US tour in our 5th wheel and all that heavy travel and sitting in the truck equaled tight jeans for me.  [sad face]

I had to make the choice to buy new jeans or lose weight.

So January, I decided to take care of myself once again and gain better health! 

I joined a team of people for a 30 Day Challenge and I implemented all the great things I was doing last year again. I ate more veggies, drank more water, supplemented, consumed less processed foods, drank a natural, non GMO protein smoothee and exercised [a little] more.

I am an imperfect work in progress.  Meaning, I messed up quite often and ate more than I should and I really didn’t exercise that much.  But I kept moving forward and didn’t give up!  Imperfect progress. I had to make a choice that even when I messed up I didn’t bag the whole month.  Keep on keeping on.  Remove the guilt from my thinking. 

The results???  Better than I thought! 

My jeans are finally fitting better. I have more energy. I feel better from the inside out.

I lost 5 lbs and 4 inches off my body!  I notice it especially in my stomach.

Here are my before and after photos for the 30 days.

Unlock Your Greatness~~with Sarah Finks

Welcome!  Follow on Facebook

Today, I am sharing a MUST event with you hosted by my friend and co-worker, Sarah Finks.  Sarah is a master in coaching women to achieve the life they want to have in their careers, relationships and homes.  What she speaks is golden and the opportunity to attend this FREE event is an opportunity not to be missed!  It is my honor and privilege to share this with you today. 

Unlock Your Greatness header 

Here are all the details from Sarah….

The Unlock Your Greatness Event

With a Free Pass for YOU!

January 28th – February 1st

Did you know that the majority of women today describe their life as fine?

There is certainly nothing wrong with fine. But have you ever imagined what a little bit of greatness in your life could do?

Now, I don’t know what you have going on and I’m sure you love your career, your relationships are kick ass, you are debt free, you feel great in your body, and leap out of bed each morning, just ready to attack the day.

But not everyone is experiencing this right now. There are a lot of women out there in crappy relationships, or uncomfortably single, getting divorced, staying in jobs that are suffocating, going into debt, frustrated with their kids, exhausted, bored, and settling.

I’m sure you may even know some folks that would love to improve their marriage, or find love, decrease debt, kick ass at work, and feel great in their bod. Maybe you do too!

But in order to really unlock your greatness, you need more than stardust. How about a roadmap and GPS from people who have already done it – and want to show you how to do it too?

The Unlock Your Greatness Event is that GPS. It’s an exclusive event designed to give you access to 14 amazingly successful women who have charted their own course to greatness for themselves …and who want to show you how to do it, too.

Plus, I’m honored and excited to be a speaker at the Event!

A full five days of valuable information about what it takes to make this the year that you finally unlock your greatness, all at no cost to you.

Won’t you join me? Sign up here to save your seat: http://yourgreatnessunlocked.com

Thanks Sarah!

Healthy Living Steps for Moms on the GO

…….this is a popular post from last year….Happy New Year!…….

Are you a busy mom on the GO?  Do you desire a more healthy lifestyle for you and your family?  Do you struggle with action and committing?  Or are you confused about where to start?  You are NOT alone!  Most people want to get healthy, feel better, have more energy and look younger yet they feel they are too busy to make it happen.  Then discouragement sets in.  I know because I struggle with this all too! 

Prior to making some important changes in my life and family, I was a burned out mom.  I was feeling sick, depressed, tired all the time and had very little energy.  My role in life was changing from mommy to mom, my husband had a stressful job, we had gotten ourselves into some debt and my passion for life had seemed to just be gone.  It was time for some serious CHANGE, but even the thought of that overwhelmed me. I thought I needed a major overhaul (and I did!) but I thought I had to do it ALL at once.  That thought crippled me until I decided to change that thought.  Who says I have to do it all?  I think it was just me telling myself that.  Is this you too?  It is freeing to get rid of that crippling thought and I must remind myself of this often.

If you are FED UP with this reality, then I invite you to get serious and find some new habits that will serve you and your family better.  Take it ONE STEP at a time. 

Healthy living shouldn’t feel hard…..it should feel GOOD!

healthylivingsteps

Here are my 8 Simple Steps to get started TODAY!

1.  Drink a full glass of water first thing in the morning.

2.  Grab a few fresh fruits on your way out every day.

3.  Avoid eating out for lunch.

4.  Exercise daily.

5.  Drink herbal teas.

6.  Eat a handful of nuts around 3pm.

7.  Breath Deeply and Pray.

8.  Get enough sleep.

Commit to action and start feeling GOOD!

Which one will you start with?

A commitment is always more successful when you surround yourself with like-minded and encouraging people.  I invite you to plug in here for community support.  Start by subscribing by email to get access to our newsletter.

30daybeforeandafter_thumb.jpg

You will receive your favorite flavored, yummy health smoothies and snacks.

You will not go hungry!!

(You will not be hungry while you turn your body around!  We provide a meal by meal online program…Basically, you will not need to think about it.  You just start losing the inches.

You set the goals, we set the plan!

(Each plan is designed for you!)  We have plans for you to turnaround your body and shape, stay lean and mean AND a maintenance plan so you never gain it back….EVER!!!

You will also get an accountability online program to keep track of your progress. 

You will also be able to post updates directly on to Facebook (with pictures if you want-we know how you like posting pics of food!)

You will be part of our Body Turnaround Challenge online forum!  You will join other like-minded and focused people to keep you on track. 

You will have access to a personal trainer so you can ask fitness questions and the right answers!  You will also receive daily motivation so you will stay motivated and not fall off.

You will finally be able to wear your skinny jeans again! This is the only program that guarantees that you will burn ONLY FAT! So, you know your efforts will not only show it on the scale but you will literally see the inches falling off. You will exercise 3 minutes a day!

You will feel strong, motivated, and determined!  You will feel the best you have in a really long time.  You will be happy!

This program works and is doctor recommend!

I am down 10 3/4 in. and 9.5 pounds! I am really feeling good and ready to continue this journey with all of you! ~ Katy

 

30 days later! I have lost a total of 10lbs so far and 10.5 inches! ~ Becky

 

I was feeling a little frustrated since I lost a lot initially and then gained a little. Seeing these and the fact that I need new pants-my 2 year old pantsed (is that a word?!) me at the store the other day as she was falling and grabbed my jeans (thankfully, no one else saw)-definitely helps me keep going! Lost 6 lbs, 6 inches overall and down 2% body fat! ~~ Leilani

 

I love that my stretchy pants are even getting big! ~~ Jennifer

 

The most amazing things have happened since I started this program. One:  I actually CRAVE the shakes! Two: it dawned on me recently that my sweet tooth is almost non-existent. Which I find amazing! Three: I also find myself not craving the crap food nearly as much. McDonald’s commercials look gross now when they used to look so good. But the best part about this program is this group and the support/motivation you all give! ~~ Ali

 

I am so excited!!! I lost my last belly fat!! This program is great for Mamas after having kids! (I did not work out. (I know, I am terrible) and I did a modified program because I am nursing.). I am loving the results!!! ~~ Bonnie

 

For me….This Challenge has been about more than just losing weight. My husband will tell you, I was not happy at all. He recently was telling my friend, “Yeh, she was so bad off, she didn’t get out of her pajamas all day. She is a different person.” To hear him say that, was the greatest thing I could have heard! I am a different person, I am myself again, full of energy! I overheard my husband tell someone on the phone, “I’m having a hard time keeping up with her. She’s out working me.”I’m excited and I’m reaching for my goal of losing 100 lbs! I have 87 lbs to go, and I’ll be at the finish line with the rest of you!            ~~ Christi

Organic Cleaning

Health isn’t just about what you put in your body, it’s about everything around you.

Did you know:

  • Over 90% of poison exposures happen at home?

 

  • Chlorine bleach is the #1 household chemical involved in poisoning?

 

  • Organic pollutants, found in many common cleaners and even air fresheners, are found at levels 2 – 5 times higher inside your home than out?

 

  • Common cleaners give off fumes that can potentially increase the risk of kids developing asthma, the most common chronic childhood disease.

 

  • 1 in 13 school-aged children has asthma. Rates in children under five has increased more than 160% from 1980 – 1994.

 

  • Children are highly vulnerable to chemical toxicants.

 

  • Your skin is your largest organ and the chemicals from you cleaners can be absorbed through your skin?

 

  • An average home generates over 25 pounds of toxic, hazardous waste each year. Much of this waste can be attributed to household cleaning products

 

  • The EPA says that only a fraction of the more than 81,000 registered chemicals have gone through testing for human health concerns.

 

  • A person who spends 15 minutes cleaning soap scum off a shower stall could inhale three times the acute exposure limit of some chemicals.

IMG_0835

While you make your home cleaner, you can make your family healthier.

Why I use Organic Cleaning Products:

“I owned and operated a cleaning business for 10 years.  Prior to using organic products, I was getting daily headaches.

It honestly took me a little while to connect the dots between the chemicals in the cleaning products and my health issues.

Once I switched to the Get Clean product line, I noticed an immediate change for the better!

My headaches were gone, my allergy issues got better, I saved money AND they worked.”       ~ Claire

Super Soft, Shiny + Healthy Hair

Do you have dry hair or scalp?

Try this to get super soft, shiny + healthy hair.

I was noticing that mine was getting dry this winter and I needed to do something about it.  

I didn’t have the time or want to spend the money to go to the salon and get a treatment so I made my own and it turned out amazing!

 

I heard of coconut oil working like magic so I thought I would try it out.

I had coconut oil in the cupboard so I got it out and spooned some in my hand and started applying it all over my hair. 

I massaged it in and put it in a pony tail.

Then, I let it sit for about 30 min. and did the dishes while I waited.  I’m always multi-tasking.

After that, I took a shower and washed and conditioned it twice.

I could tell instantly that my hair was smoother.  I dried and styled my hair as usual and notice my hair was extremely soft, my scalp was not dry and my hair was shiny.

super soft hair

I’m actually really pleased with how it turned out and as a result will probably do this every couple of weeks during the winter because my hair feels so good!

Have you ever tried something like this?

Did you use coconut oil?

How did you like it?
