It’s been six months since my last post. The last time I blogged I was on the mend, feeling almost 100% better in terms of energy level and my sleep had also been restored. When I look at the picture above, I’m in shock. I knew I had been feeling “old and tired,” but I didn’t know just how much it showed on my entire being. When I look at the picture of myself now, I feel it reflects the person that I truly am: full of energy and joy. Despite my feeling radiantly healthy on the inside back when I last blogged, I had also been feeling impatient and ready to drop the weight that I had put on inexplicably over the past two years. When I begun working on my health with functional nutritionist Sagi Kalev, creator of Body Beast, he immediately established the list of priorities for…Details
If someone had told me that in just a few weeks I would be sleeping better, pooping regularly, and feeling fully energized–especially after struggling for two years–I would not have believed them. Well, I’m ecstatic to report that all of the above are true. I am consistently waking up feeling refreshed. The brain fog, which, to be honest, I hadn’t even realized I had, is gone. My thinking is so clear now. I am focused, sharp, feeling so creative and ready to take on new challenges and projects. In short, I feel like myself again. Welcome Back, Barbie, for real! As I’ve stated in my previous few posts, I’m a take-action/results-oriented person. Despite struggling badly with poor sleep, weight gain and fatigue, I still got my work done and did what I needed to do. But I can now tell you, there’s a huge, and I mean huge difference between…Details
I was surprised by the number of emails and responses I received after my last two blog posts. Apparently, I am not the only one struggling with unexpected weight gain despite my best efforts to eat clean and exercise regularly. Certified Functional Nutritionist, Sagi Kalev, also the creator of the BodyBeast program, has been working with me to not only reveal the root causes of my health issues, but to come up with an action plan to get me back on the path of health and vibrancy. I am more than delighted to report that: I am pooping like a champ. Lol, I know this is too much information, but if you’ve ever had digestive issues, you’ll be happy to know that the solution could really be as simple as eliminating a few foods from your diet and taking a few supplements. Well, the testing that Sagi did (not sure…Details
In my last blog post I shared the health struggles that I’ve been having over the past two years: inexplicable weight gain, insomnia, and fatigue despite my best efforts to eat clean and exercise at least 5 times per week. It was really the completion of Beachbody’s 21-Day Cleanse, The Ultimate Reset, that allowed me to see that something in my body wasn’t quite right. While most who complete the Ultimate Reset boast of a renewed sense of well-being, including the best sleep they’ve had in years, my sleep worsened and my fatigue levels remained the same, if not worse. I want to stress that the Ultimate Reset did not cause my symptoms or exacerbate my health issues, it actually brought them to light. I would recommend the Ultimate Reset for anyone who feels like they need a tune up. Um, that would be most of us! It was after…Details
My friends sometimes make fun of me, saying that they can’t believe I can make such a good living selling shakes. I mean, I do sell shakes, but I know that I am in the business of helping others transform their lives in ways that go far beyond weight loss. Veronica’s story below is a case in point. With her permission, I am reposting something she shared in our private Challenge Group. Reclaiming your body can be the first step to reclaiming you. Our next challenge group begins Monday, December 3rd. Message me for details. *** Written by Veronica Owen, one of the ladies in my Challenge Group. Posted with permission. I have been severely depressed for quite some time. My husband is an active duty Marine, we have been together for 10 years (married for 6), we have 2 beautiful little boys together (Ethan- 8 & Drake- 2), and…Details
I had heard about cauliflower rice and had even tried making my own once. But somehow I missed the boat the first time. This time, however, my dish was amazing. Here is the recipe:
- Cauliflower head
- onions, mushrooms, garlic
- coconut or olive oil
Cut the cauliflower into chunks. Put it in the food processor to chop into little tiny rice pieces.
Put coconut oil in pan. Heat. Sautee onions, mushrooms, tomatoes, and whatever else you want. Put in raw cauliflower and cook. Add paprika and salt.
Eat when cooked!
I think I stumbled upon this one step protein-pudding recipe on a blog post or instagram photo by the GoSuperSisters. They’re full of fun and healthy recipe ideas. The recipe to this pure protein dessert is ridiculously easy and satisfies my craving for something sweet and, well, desserty looking! Ingredients: one scoop of whey protein or your favorite protein 1/2 tsp of Xantham Gum 1 cup water Optional: Stevia if desired Cinnammon if desired Blend all ingredients. Chill and serve. Calories? Whatever calories are in the protein blend you use! Now, what is Xantham gum and where do you get it? I bought it at Whole Foods, I think in the baking section.You can also get it online. I found this product description from Soap.com “Xanthan Gum is made from the outer layer of a tiny, inactive bacterium called Xanthomonas campestris. It is an excellent all purpose thickener for dressings,…Details
