Day 23 of January Detox Challenge Group!

Day 23

We are nearing the end of this month’s challenge.  Think about all that you have accomplished this month!  What a way to start the year.  Even if you’re not where you want to be, you have tools to get you there.  You know how to properly detox and clean out your system, you know how to eat clean food, and you know how to stay active!  Look at all that you have accomplished so far.  I’m so proud of you guys!  Next month, our focus will be fitness and relationships.  Wellness is a balance of our mind, body and spirit.  I’m so excited about taking our relationships to the next level and really going after being the best partner we can be!!!  Let’s keep learning:)))




1) Tuesday- Power Cardio!  HIIT Training!


2) Food- Super Breakfast Food!!!


3) Mantra for the Day- Don’t let one bad day get you down….
I used to feel horrible if I had a bad day, I would just throw in the towel and give up.  I would often say, “Oh well, I guess I’ll have to start over on Monday, or next month, or next year!!!”  How ridiculous is that thinking!?!?  We have the ability to start over every minute of the day.  If you blow it, and guess what!?  You will:)))  You can just start over right then and there:)  You can do it!!!  Don’t give in.  XOXO:)))

Love you guys and I’m rooting for you:)  XOXO!


Pictures in a Magazine….


I’m really trying to get back to my blogging but summer has been a little crazy!  I hope you guys are doing well and enjoyed your time off.  Our family went to Austin, TX for our family vacation and ended up eating our way through Texas!  WOW!  I’ve never had so much meat in my entire life!!!  It took a while to recover but it was worth it!!!
So today I took my daughter to the dentist and picked up a fashion magazine.  It’s been a while since I picked one up.  Is it just me or are fashion models skinnier than ever???  I was shocked that each page was filled with emaciated women full of skin and bones.  Has it always been that way?  It really made me sad because being in the fitness industry and seeing people of all shapes and sizes these models are not the norm.  I know we talk about this quite a bit and how the media sensationalizes these skinny celebrities but it’s still shocking that we think this is the standard.

I know this is a topic that is discussed often and I applaud Israel for banning the skinny models from their magazines.  I just think it’s so unhealthy and it’s not attainable.  I also heard that Vogue is doing its part to ban the ultra skinny models.  Bravo!


Being in Austin was interesting.  Austin is one of the fittest cities and people are very health conscious.  We went to a few swimming holes and saw people in all shapes and sizes.  Living in Los Angeles we see what’s called “California Skinny”.  I actually noticed a difference.  It’s as if we always have to be ten pounds less our ideal weight in case we have to be on camera! LOL!  (I say that because that’s what I used to do) People in LA are really into their body image, myself included.  When I was in Austin i felt like I could just relax and eat a rib or two!  I could also eat homemade ice cream and not feel one ounce of guilt.  Shouldn’t life be lived that way???  I know this may come off as stereotypical and it’s not meant to offend anyone.  I was just making some observations and wanted to put it out there.


I realize that I have an even bigger desire to help and empower women all over the world, especially in Los Angeles to LOVE their bodies, LOVE themselves and to stop comparing.  I can definitely obsess about my weight and what I eat.  I am going to let it go and be healthy.  I’m going to enjoy and make good choices.  If I splurge here and there, I am going to give myself permission.  I’m going to enjoy how God designed me and stop trying so hard.  I find myself not being satisfied sometimes.  I finally reached my goal weight this year.  I did it the old fashioned way, by exercising and eating clean.  No gimmicks, no fads, no diets.  I feel wonderful and amazing.  But, I continue to hear the voice in my head, “just a couple more pounds..”  Here’s a tip ladies…..once you reach past forty, it’s not very attractive to be super skinny.  Our skin and other parts begin to sag and our noses start to get too big for our skinny faces! LOL!  Seriously, just keeping it real.  Older women should have a little meat to their bones and they look much better.  Trust me.


After I looked through the magazine, I realized how detrimental it was to look through these pictures and be bombarded with these images in my head.  I guess I wasn’t missing much and definitely won’t be picking up another one anytime soon.  I hope you’ll put yours down too.  Let’s look at the natural beauty in everyone and stop thinking that everyone needs to look like a size two!!!  Love you guys and let’s do this together:)))))

Much Love,
