5 Organic Hacks for Cold and Flu Season
November 14, 2017

It's that time of year again; the flu and cold season is here, and I am having a flashback of last December.  I was out of state for the holidays and got the flu and bronchitis.  Oh, I was miserable.  Then my father got it, and we were all sick.  I went to the doctor and they gave me antibiotics and a whole list of medications, some which made me feel worse.  It was bad. As I laid on the couch, I remember thinking, "I will never feel like this again..."  Since then, I have looked for gentler, more natural and organic medicines to help alleviate symptoms for myself and my family before they get out of hand. I have found that there are some …

This is a Sponsored Post for CycleBar® Boca Raton.  All opinions are my own. If you're ready to rock and get your bike on, CycleBar® Boca Raton is the place to be!  If you're like me and have never taken a spinning class in your life, get ready for some fun.

Surviving Back Pain and Mother's Day with Smart For Life
June 5, 2017

So, it’s been a month since I started again on my Smart for Life journey. If you read my earlier article you know that after completing my second round of Smart for Life I had fallen off tracks and gained back  a lot of the 30+ pounds I had originally lost. This was my first monthly check-in. I’ve been doing weekly weigh-ins so I knew pretty much where I was at. During the weekly the only that is checked is your weight. The monthly check-in is a lot more involved, you get to see the progression of your BMI, your body fat percentage, fat mass, water, and more. I came in at about 6lbs below my starting weight. I was a little disappointed but between Mother’s Day Brunch/extravaganza …

How to Lose Inches With Squeez Me Skinnny
May 22, 2017

"Squeez me what?"  You might ask. That's right, it's called Squeez Me Skinny. It's been featured on The Doctors, Good Morning America, and Women's Fitness. Waist trainers are all the rage right now. I really could have used this after I had both my boys.  I used some kind of waist band but it was so uncomfortable, bulky, and big.  I just didn't follow through. When I was modeling in my twenties my waist was a 25 and my hips 36.  Oh have times changed! haha.  But now I am just happy to fit into my Lucky Jeans size 8.  At the moment they don't go above my hips. So I decided to go back on my clean diet and incorporate a Squeez)Me(Skinny waist trainer.  The diet helps me …

Give the Gift of Sleep for Mother's Day
May 10, 2017

When I was a kid, I never wanted to sleep.  There was too much to do or see out there.  My mom would say, "I've got things to do, places to go, and people to see!" I didn't want to waste a second. When I was in my 20's I lived in Miami Beach and stayed up all hours of the night partying and having a good time. Oh, how times have changed. Now, a mommy of two very active boys, I rarely get a full night's sleep.  But it's not out of choice. When I do have an opportunity to sleep well, my mind is racing and I can't fall asleep. For instance, last night my son woke up to use the bathroom and he needed help.  Somehow, …

How LuLaRoe Leggings Made Me Gain 20lbs
May 6, 2017

I try to live a healthy lifestyle.  I really do.  I lost 30lbs while on the Smart For Life diet.  I eliminated  salt and sugar and ate lots of lean chicken and fish with vegetables.  It was all about clean eating.  And cookies, lol. My hot flashes went away.  I had energy.  Life was good.  All my old clothes, including my Lucky Jeans from pre kids, fit me.  I finally had my nice wardrobe back and threw away my maternity dresses and elastic skirts. Then I discovered LuLaRoe leggings.  I said I wouldn't get sucked into the hype.  There was so much hype!!! But everyone swore that these comfy, loungy, amazing clothes would change my life. So, I bought a pair to "support a friend."  As I was cashing …

Indulging On Valentines Day
February 10, 2017

For myself, I know that whenever a holiday comes up it triggers my eating patterns.  I want to celebrate.  In my mind celebrating means indulging.  But the problem is that it doesn't stop on the holidays.  It sets me up for bad eating habits.  Then I slowly get back into my unhealthy eating patterns.  I feel bad physically and emotionally and the cycle starts over. Whoa is me... But I found an easy solution to indulge without feeling all the guilt. And it's chocolate!  I can't live without chocolate.  Dr. Sass does not shy away from putting it in his cookies and protein bars.  Perhaps that's why I keep going back, lol. Smart For Life just came out with Chocolatey Protein Coins to satisfy my sweet tooth.  …

5 Ways to Jump Start Your Health for the New Year
January 9, 2017

Almost everyone makes New Year's Resolutions at the beginning of the New Year.  I don't.  I assess my goals and "get back on track."  I love having a healthy lifestyle.  But it goes down hill around November and that's okay.  I own it and then I get back on track.  It's all about progress, not perfection.  If I was perfect, I'd be bored and have nothing to write about. haha. So what are the things do to change? 1. Get Moving After the Holidays, it's hard to get moving.  But it's necessary.  For many reasons, including boosting those happy endorphins and to boost the metabolism.  Whether it's to lose weight or just to get healthy, it's important to not stay still.  I could make an excuse that my …
