My Top 5 Wieght Loss Tips

My Top 5 Coaching Tips

1) Muscle Dictates Metabolism
Don’t be afraid to lift weights either at home or at the gym. The more muscle you have the more calories you will burn even when you are at rest. One pound of muscle looks completely different than one pound of fat on your body.

2) Fiber and protein at every meal, makes losing weight no big deal! Choose both while filing your plate. For a mid morning snack grab a handful of almondimages vegetables

with your apple.

3) choose 2 healthy snacks each day (fiber and protein) between meals to keep satisfied and energized all day.

4) Don’t skip meals,especially breakfast. Breakfast is very important to start your day right. You wouldn’t expect your car to run for 8 hours without filling the gas tank. Your body needs Fuel too.

5) Choose locally grown fruit and vegetables in season. This will help you eat the freshest produce available. Not to mention you will be helping our local farms stay in business. Of course organically grown is always a plus.

I’d like to hear from you. What is your favorite produce that is in season right now in the month of July?

The January Gym Goers

The January Gym Goers

Have you ever noticed in January how crowded your gym becomes? The weights and machines you always get to quickly is now a wait? Why is that???

So many people make the “New Years Resolution” to lose weight and or live a healthier lifestyle. I applaud them for saying this out loud but unfortunately most of the time the statement lacks their commitment. We all seem to have that one friend or family member in our life that really wants to make the change but just won’t. Sometimes we want it more for them the they want it for themselves. Below are some tips to help you cope.


The only way to cope is to be extremely supportive and hope they adopt better habits. Congratulate the smallest positive activity because it is huge to their life. Try not to be judgmental and Heaven’s sake definitely DON’T Tease! Every small move towards a healthier lifestyle is a good move and should be recognized. We all love recognition.

If you are one of the individuals who are 100% committed on January 1st to make the changes for a healthier lifestyle only to drop it like a hot potato by  January 14th……these tips are for you.


You just took the first step by making the decision. It can be difficult to stay focused and committed but you can do it!

1) Make smaller commitments- 20 minutes of cardio  as a beginner then move to 30 after you are comfortable

2) Lift weights to change your metabolism- Muscle dictates metabolism. You want to build lean muscle to burn fat

3) Try swimming- This can be a full body workout without pressure on your joints

4) Push-ups against the wall- It can be intimidating to get on the floor next to the buff guy/girl and try push-ups. Try them on the wall first and work your way to a full military push-up in your own time.

5) 20-20-20- short on time? Try 20 squats-20 wall push-ups and 20 core moves (plank, crunches etc) do this 2-3 times  day on your break at work.

The most important thing to do is to KEEP MOVING and DON’T GIVE UP! Everything you do is working towards your goals for a healthier lifestyle. I always tell my clients….never give up.

Your Shopping Annuity Fund

The Holiday Season is upon us. Do you know that an estimated $640 Billion $$ will be spent during the holidays. The question is DO YOU WANT A PIECE OF IT?? Did you also know that Black Friday sales has gone down while Cyber Monday and online sales has sky rocketed upwards!

Why is that? The current trend is shopping online and the internet isn’t going anywhere but up. For the Entrepreneur and savvy shopper who takes full advantage of this Pardon shift, there is money to be saved and earned.

What if I could show you how to

1) Save money on your shopping and NEVER pay full retail again

2) Earn Cash Back on products you buy every month

3) Start your own Shopping Annuity Fund


What is a Shopping Annuity Fund you ask?? Annuity by definition:

An annuity is any continuing payment with a fixed total annual amount. Annuity may refer to:

So would it make sense if you could feed your own Shopping Annuity by transferring your shopping habits?? Of course it would right?

If you could own an Amazon….would you? That would be great but unfortunately Amazon does not pay into your Shopping Annuity.

How did I set up my personal Shopping Annuity Fund and pay myself for all the shopping I do anyway to keep my home going? I bought a online franchise. Look at the link on my site “Shopping Annuity Fund” and you can read all the details on stating your own shopping annuity. Not only can you earn income on your own shopping but also all the internet traffic on a daily basis as well as Cyber Monday shoppers.

Why would you consider this? Because It Just Makes Sense.



Immunity Boosting

Did you ever give thought to why you are the only one in the office who keeps catching the same cold, fever and flu even when you are careful about your hygiene? Your immune system is very complex and made up of various organs, tissues and cells. Besides for your skin, your immune system is a first defender to keep the bad bacteria (germs) out. That being said, we need to pay special attention to taking care of it all year-long.

There are certain habits and activities that can boost or breakdown your immunity.

1) Making Healthy Choices: Choosing foods that are packed with nutrients is key. Adding brightly colored fruit and vegetables such as Red peppers, Broccoli, Strawberries, Blueberries and Kale will give you a boost. Stay away from processed food, sugar and trans fats. I realize holiday time is upon us so splurge a little but not every day. Making the wrong choices can weaken your immunity resulting in a miserable winter.

2) De-Stress: I understand we all have stress, especially if you are a parent. But chronic stress can wreak havoc on your immune system as well as encourage belly fat to be a permanent fixture. While your body is under stress cortisol is released and can impact your immune system in a negative way increasing your chances of getting sick.

3) Sleep longer: How much sleep you need varies for each individual. A good start would be 8 hours a night. As you sleep your body recharges giving it a chance to build immunity back up. Usually if you are sick added sleep is a necessity. I also noticed when I get more sleep my face looks younger. (Very important to me)

4) Supplement daily: Adding these supplements can really make a difference in the quest for good immunity and general health.

Vitamin C
Promotes optimal immune functions
Provides antioxidant protection
Promotes normal regulation of heart functions
Promotes cognitive health
Reduces the inflammatory response
Promotes skeleton, muscle and skin health
Helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels

Vitamin D3 with K2
Promotes normal bone mineral density
Promotes healthy arteries
Supports immune health
Helps maintain bone health
Helps maintain bone mass by supporting normal osteoclast activity
Helps maintain cardiovascular health
Promotes elasticity of blood vessels
Helps maintain normal blood pressure
Women with low bone density have been found to be deficient in vitamin K

Derived from Coneflowers, Echinacea is said to activate immune cells

Elderberry found in the supplement Isotonix Immune:
Boosts the body’s natural immune response
Clinical trials have shown that Wellmune® promotes a healthy immune system
Promotes beneficial activity of macrophages, T cells and natural killer cells, which engulf and destroy – pathogens and foreign matter
Promotes healthy energy levels and vitality
Improves mental clarity

My family and I all take the isotonix immune and Isotonix OPC-3. You can read about them under the tab – “Nutrition for Life”

Exercise often:
Adding fitness into your daily routine is so important to keeping your immune system healthy. Your body was meant to move… keep it moving. Exercise improves your mood, your metabolic rate and is De-stressing! All of these will help with immunity. Take a brisk walk after meals. This will help move along your digestive tract.
