Oh, that elusive sleep.  That time to relax and regenerate.  To heal and repair.

 

If you need that coffee or two (or three) every morning you may get some very useful tips in this post.

 

Sleep isn’t just important for your mind and body to have energy and be alert.  Lack of sleep can contribute to serious health issues which you don’t want.

 

So let me have your attention for this “tip-filled” post on the importance of sleep and how you can get your fair share.  I’ll even throw in an amazing caffeine-free latte recipe for your afternoon “pick me up”.  Continue reading »

living libations shampooOk, here’s the “cool healthy chick” talking about hair today!

Years ago, I put whatever on my body, never giving it a second thought, EVER.

But then, one day, things changed.

I started to read labels.

I started to learn that what you put on your skin gets absorbed into your bloodstream.

I learned that toxins get encapsulated by fat cells to protect our organs.

Could my skin and hair care products be making me fat?  Continue reading »

During the holidays, it’s tempting to throw your workouts to the side (and the healthy eating too) with the promise to start again in the New Year.Move your body class shots (11)

You may be travelling more, attending more food-oriented gatherings, drinking more and frantically shopping so it can make it tough to keep up with your physical activity.

It’s an incredibly busy time of year so it’s easy to make the excuses to put off exercising. Instead of stopping all together, shift into maintenance mode.

You have worked so hard to gain the positive benefits such as more energy, better sleeps, weight loss or maintenance, and overall better health that it’s a shame to throw that to the side (exercise also keeps us better on track for healthy eating!!), instead use these tips as exercise is a valuable tool to get you through the challenges of the holiday season.

 

Holiday Weight Gain

The holidays are high risk time for packing on the pounds. A nibble here and a sip there can really add up over the upcoming weeks.

Exercise burns calories and maintains your muscle mass so schedule in your workouts for the month of December now. It’s also a great way to carve out some time for yourself.

Plus when you work out you make better choices when it comes to eating.

With parking lots full, choose a spot far away from the store and take the opportunity to get some extra steps into your day with some fresh air!

What you schedule you will do. As someone once said, “Show me your day timer and it will tell all.”

 

Holiday Stress

So much to do. Feeling OVERWHEMLED.

Exercise promotes the release of hormones that improve mood and reduce feelings of anxiety.

Schedule some yoga, Pilates, stretching, rolling, meditation and breathing into your December.

When you feel the panic and overwhelm brewing, connect with your breath and practice present moment awareness. We only have this moment!!

 

Depression

The shorter days make you want to cover up with a blanket by the fire or in front of the TV with some simple carb munchies! The shorter colder days can also lead to varying degrees of seasonal depression.

Exercise can reduce symptoms of depression and elevate mood. Adding a daylight walk allows you to soak in some Vitamin D and boost your happiness levels. It’s also a great way to clear your head and relieve stress.

 

Structure

The holidays can throw off your routine. Typically that means our food quality decreases, intake increases, exercise dwindles and then you are not sleeping properly, your energy levels start to decline and your waistbands get tight!

Exercise is the catalyst to keep you on schedule. You will eat better, sleep better, have more energy and be centered each day.

Be proactive and schedule your activities into your month now. Here are some amazing classes for you to choose from.

Excuses are excuses. You will do what is important to you.

This science-based program is different because it focuses on lifestyle changes, not theories that don’t apply to real life.

Your commitment to this program, and your health and appearance, has to be driven by an internal desire to be the best you possible –especially if you have children or are planning to have children.

Obesity doesn’t just come with an unfortunate social stereotype. It is also a life-threatening disease. Being overweight means you’re at a higher risk for a heart attack, diabetes, stroke, fractures… the list goes on and go.

Not only are these types of health events scary- they’re costly! They also make you lose your independence. You’re left at the mercy of caregivers, healthcare professionals, and family members who (even with the best intentions) will become frustrated.

You can do this!

You have the power to follow the program’s simple and yummy meals plans. The done-for-you recipe book and food swap list are empowering and easy to follow. Your food journal helps you identify and correct unhealthy eating habits.

You also will receive real-world grocery lists that can be applied to any neighborhood grocery.

The trailblazing program also delivers educational handouts. You will not have to question “why” we are suggesting certain foods or techniques. We provide the complimentary information so you not only follow this program, but you understand it!

You are not alone with this program.  You will have the support in our Private Holistic Weight Management System Facebook Page

While you are your only advocate in life, we are going to provide you with unlimited support. This program comes with a cheerleading team that will encourage you during the good times and support you when times become stressful or temptation rears its ugly head!

  • It helps you choose foods that support digestion and dramatically reduce gas, bloating and heartburn

Smoothie Money Saving Tip

I love having an abundance of green in my fridge! But sometimes I can’t eat it fast enough! That’s when I discovered that I can freeze everything.

When you have a bounty of greens in your vegetable garden, use this technique to enjoy the greens all year long (bye bye, waste). Continue reading »

Your thought and beliefs are the single most important indicator of your state of health. Your beliefs and thoughts are wired into your biology. They become your cells, tissues and organs. There’s no supplement, no diet, no medicine, and no exercise regimen that can compare with the power of your thoughts and beliefs. That’s the very first place you need to look when anything goes wrong with your body.”

– Christiane Northrup, M.D., Goddesses Never Age

Christiane goes on to explain that when something does go wrong in your body, it’s a wake-up call to pay attention. Perhaps you haven’t been conscious of the issue or emotion until it shows up physically. Have the courage to go deep within yourself and honestly look at what is going on in your life, what are your thoughts and beliefs that you keep repeating in your mind.

I love reading anything by Dr. Northrup – her insight is invaluable.

Hold off on the weed spray…..soon you will be living in a sea of yellow, a landscape of golden kisses that you can use for your health instead of spraying and negatively affecting our environment.

From the leaves to the roots this typically thought of pesky weed can be invaluable to your health.

  • Chock full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. High in Calcium, rich in iron, low in calories, 14% protein
  • One of the most nutritionally dense greens you can eat
  • Many medicinal qualities
  • They are potassium-rich and have a strong diuretic quality, as well as efficacy as a blood detoxifier and good for the liver.
  • They have long been used to treat digestive disorders and to treat arthritis and eczema.

Good Ol’ Fashioned Healing Bone Broth

Remember Grandma’s chicken soup? It was said to heal you from colds and whatever ailed you. It was made by following the recipe below which produces a gelatin rich bone broth. We also used to eat every part of the animal which created an amino acid (the building blocks of protein) balance in our bodies. However, today we typically turn our noses up at eating organs and other tissues. My mummy served us liver once a month (at least that’s what it felt like, but I can say that I have not carried on this habit after leaving home).

I have however, carried on the tradition of making my own broth – it’s just a habit you add to the end of your feast.

Save your carcasses for nourishing bone broth that is so super simple to make. If you don’t have time to make it in the moment- then freeze all the bones for later. Continue reading »

Valentine’s Day is approaching quickly and you may be hearing chocolate calling your name.

I love chocolate and I eat it every day.  Years ago it was Snickers, Skor, and too many to mention! Plus lots of homemade baking with butter, sugar and flour. But I had to change…years of eating like this was affecting my moods, my hormones, my teeth, my waistline and more.

I started experimenting by making tasty treats with raw chocolate and coconut oil. I have used many recipes from various sites and also created some of my own.

So as this Valentine’s rolls around (and then Easter, and then someone’s birthday and of course, the Halloween candy will be lining the aisles soon enough)…try these creations. I promise you will change your taste buds and they will be wanting these treats and not the unhealthy ones!
