I relish the time spent with my precious family, I adore my loving husband, children, extended family, and friends. My heart is overflowing with thankfulness for all I am blessed with.
I cherish quality time spent with my family as we give thanks for the infinite abundance and happiness Heavenly Father has blessed us with.

Unfortunately, weight gain happens faster when you eat a high-calorie meal than it comes off. But not to worry, in a moment I'll share 6 tips to shed weight fast! 
Embrace the holiday season this year with the expectation enjoying festivities without gaining weight. Focus on having an attitude of abundance and gratitude.

7 Tips to Shed Weight Fast

 As you enjoy get together's this holiday season, be ready mentally as you go to eat delicious meals and deserts. Plan to take small portions and know that tomorrow is a “new beginning” for your fitness goals and ideal weight goals, you can easily get back on track the following day. Remember, you can regroup and eat clean again after a large meal, remind yourself that it was just one heavy meal and that you can eat clean from there on out.
As promised, below are tips to help you shed weight quickly. These tips are my "go-to" action plan to shed water weight and fat quickly after I overindulged during the holidays. They'll work for you too if you follow through with your commitment to do so.  
  1. Morning Detox Drink. Start your morning off with detoxifying your body, ( I do this every morning). Warm 8 oz of purified water; add a teaspoon of honey, a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar (Bragg's is what I use), a tablespoon of fresh lemon juice and a dash of cinnamon. This handy detox drink will help you detox and get your body become pH balanced to shed fat faster and aid in boosting your metabolism.
  2. Skip Breakfast. Intermediate fasting is an excellent way to boost your metabolism and shed weight quickly. The next few days after a festive meal, practice intermediate fasting, eat breakfast after 11:00 am, and then eat your next meal 4 hours later. This will give your body time to digest and detox from overeating the day before.
  3. Set new goals and affirmations: Set goals and affirmations to get you back on track with your ideal body weight goals. Be specific and write down exactly how much you want to weigh and by when. Write down a date and put a smiley face after it to have a feel good energy that you will achieve your ideal body weight.
  4. Visualize Your Ideal Body: Visualize your physique as you wish it to be, see your body in detail how you want it to be. Use a visual aid and post a picture of a physique you admire. Then see yourself having the same physique.
  5. Exercise! Exercise first think in the morning on an empty stomach. Doing so will increase Human Growth hormone (HGH) in your body, as well as will burn fat stores for energy. Plan on exercising 4 to 6 days a week: make exercise a high priority! Aim to exercise at least 30 to 60 minutes several times a week. Schedule your workouts, put them in your itinerary and then follow through just as you would with an important meeting.
  6. Eat Often. Eat a small meal every 3 to 4 hours: eat often to keep your metabolism in high gear and shed fat easier. Eat clean by eating lean protein, a complex carbohydrate, such as sweet potatoes or brown rice, and clean fat such as olive oil or flaxseed oil (at lunch), and lots of fresh veggies and salads.
  7. Drink up! Remember the importance of drinking purified water, aim to drink at least 80 oz of purified water daily. Water flushes out toxins and keeps your body well hydrated, which will energize your sluggish body after eating a big feast. If you have Liv Sxinney, drink two packets for the next few days to aid in shedding fat, (it will detox your cells, which will release fat stores easier.)
 May this holiday season be filled with joy and happiness--without weight gain.

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.
Our thoughts are magnetic on every level, that is why “like always attracts like”, it’s a universal law—the Law of Attraction. Being mindful of your thoughts through the power of prayer, visualization, mediation, goal setting and affirmations you will …

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.
