Training shoulders & arms are my favorite muscle groups to train. It’s an incredible feeling to look in the mirror and see shapely defined biceps, triceps and shoulders.  Not only do I feel empowered but I’m able to pick up heavy items without straining my body, it’s an incredible feeling to say the least!

I love working my arms & shoulders because the results are so visible, they’re the glamour muscles, it’s highly rewarding to feel & be strong. Not only do sculpted arms look more attractive in my clothes, but it's an awesome feeling to be strong a mother.  I remember vividly when I began increasing my strength years ago I could pick two of my young children at once and put one on each hip, that’s when I knew this was the only way to live.  It was exhilarating to be strong and fit, that was years ago, and I still loving my LivFit Lifestyle.

"Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil."~James Allen
It’s empowering to know that we can literally alter our life experiences & physique by tapping into the power of your mind.  By having thoughts and feelings that are positive, the mind will be able to create the world of your dreams in great detail.
Your thoughts are like a magnet, a simple thought will have a weak magnetic power just like a small magnet does. A powerful emotion such as joy or fear will have a much greater magnetic pull, thus it will magnetize more of what you are feeling into your life.

Paleo Low Carb Protein Spiced Pumpkin Cookies

Paleo Low Carb Protein Spiced Pumpkin Cookies

I absolutely LOVE this time of year! I relish the smell of fall in the air and joy of baking delicious fall desserts for my family. I enjoy baking traditional recipes for my family, however, I don't eat sugar nor do I eat wheat or high carb flours. 
Sugar and high carbs only cause weight gain and inflammation in the body, which is why I eat a clean diet free of trans fats, processed foods, sugars and high carbs.  Protein is also a high priority in my diet, I incorporate protein into my recipes when fitting. I use whey protein isolate in all my baked recipes. 
And for good reason, protein keeps blood sugar level and aids in maintaining muscle mass, which is a must for me to keep my lean physique. So needless to say, I make up a lot of low carb recipes to suite my diet and to continue to have fun baking for my family and friends.
