The Benefits of Collagen (Anti Aging)

One supplement that I have seen the most benefits from is soluble collagen. Over time collagen decreases. Pollution, too much sugar, and the natural decrease of collagen production can cause wrinkles, achy joints, brittle hair, saggy skin, and lack of firmness in the body. You do not need to slide into the ditch of gravity’s…

HUM Supplements

I wanted to tell you about some products I love! I am not being paid to tell you about them. I simply like them. They will give me a coupon if you use the referral code below. They are not paying me for a review. I was looking for a great cleanse that would not…

Persist Until You See Results

Hello wellness friends, I hope you are taking care of yourself. I wanted to chat with you about persistence. It is important to understand that lifestyle changes and persistence are more important than quick fixes. Every fad diet I have ever tried failed me. They did not shift the way I perceived food. What happened…

What’s On Your Plate?

My plate tonight was grilled lemon chicken, roasted potatoes, arugula salad with almonds and cherries. The dressing is olive oil and vinegar. Quite tasty. Desert will be a banana with mixed nut butter. One of things I loved about the Whole30 program was it forced me to cook more, to try new foods, and develop…

What is Refined Sugar Doing to Your Body?

One of the blessings of Whole30 is that it is a refined sugar free lifestyle. Refined sugar is in many items we purchase including salsa, salad dressing, and ketchup. Many processed foods, those frozen meals, crackers, etc…contain refined sugar. Sugar causes the breakdown of collagen. Collagen helps us to look youthful. Sugar speeds up aging….

Set Goals Instead of Making Resolutions

Set Goals, Not Make Resolutions. Every year I draft goals for the year. Goals are more than wishes, desires, or it would be nice. Goals are more than a resolution of “I will do this or not do that.” Goals are measurable and have a plan attached to them. They are measurable. Therefore I use…

Healthy Living-Choose Health!

One of the greatest things about Whole30 was seeing a change in my waistline and skin. The photo above was taken after 3.5 rounds of Whole30. It has not been modified. It just is a selfie taken at a weird angle. The dress I have on I could not wear for a long time. Now…

Cheat Meals

Hello fitness friends, So I finished two rounds of Whole30. Delighted with the results. Now that it’s over, I have been trying new foods and old foods. What I have learned is the non Whole30 foods do not satisfy my hunger. I eat them; I am still so hungry. Last week I tried pizza and…

Whole Food Lifestyle

This year I completed 4 rounds of Whole30. I know it’s supposed to be a 30 day program, yet the results were so great I decided to keep going. I lost roughly 7 pounds a round. I am down several sizes. I feel better. All the digestion issues I had went away. I noticed a…

Eating Healthy Away from Home

  Hey gorgeous fitness friends,  I hope you are drinking tons of water and eating healthy. Last time I talked about cooking your own meals. Today I want to talk about eating well away from home.  I have not had time to cook and prep meals. Yesterday was an 11 hour work day. So, today…

Get back on that wagon

Hello fitness friends. As the holiday season comes to a close, I’m sure there are at least a few of you thinking, “I ate too much and gained too much this season!” Well, this post is for you! I admit it’s challenging to not indulge in the cookies, pies, or carb loaded sides. It’s all…

Fast Food Nation

Hello mi amigos (my friends). I have not forgotten about you! I wanted to talk today about fast food. We live in a fast food nation! Everywhere you turn there is a restaurant offering you burgers, fries, deep fried golden delights! Since the rise in obesity, type II diabetes, and other food related illnesses, many…
