A Clean Home = Peace and Calm!

What does a  clean home have to do with being Fit and Fabulous? I have been reading about cleaning schedules, decluttering, and sparking joy all at the same time. I feel so much better when my house is in order inside and out! When it is not I feel cranky, agitated and a bit overwhelmed.

I have been working on a schedule that works for me. I don’t want to spend too much time everyday cleaning. 1/2 hour tops. It is good to step away from the computer and move. No one bothers me when I am doing chores.

Back to Fit and Fabulous…I know when I am peaceful, calm and happy I eat less. I start to let a few pounds drop as well. This winter I was holding on to the weight. I know being cranky and agitated increases your cortisol levels and tells your body to hold on to the FAT! It is so great when it all becomes an easy process where you don’t  think about it.

I joined Andreea Fegan’s month of Minimalism Challenge and her Simple, Healthy, Decluttered Living public Facebook group.  I ask myself why am I spending time doing this? Taking pictures, posting, and encouraging others to join the group. It brings me joy, happiness AND it is fun! Today, I posted about what the best mop is for hard wood floors and I got an answer.  So great!

How do you bring peace and calm into your life?

It is not just about a clean home. It is important to feed your body the right food. Do you need a jump start to releasing Fat?

I am going to   run around my new mop. Very Exciting!

Extraordinary Health = Extraordinary Life!

“In order to live an extraordinary life, you need Extraordinary Healthy!!! ” Kate Northrup

I was on a Facebook Live business training last Saturday when Kate said the above quote. It really stuck with me. I came down with the flu which lingered on for two weeks.  I haven’t been sick like that for years. I take really good care of myself. Many people around me have had high fevers. I didn’t have that. It pays to take eat well, take your supplements, exercise and sleep!

You really appreciate having good health when you are sick.

I am back! How is your health?

Would you like to have more energy? Are you tired of feeling bloated and achy? Suffering from Hot flashes? Are you craving sugar, salty carbs or caffeine in the afternoon?

Amy is Feeling Fabulous and Highlights!

First off it is always about HAIR!. 2 years ago I decided to stop highlighting my hair and go grey. I blogged about it. I joined a silver hair group. I interview others about going grey. My hair is dark with out much grey. Yesterday, I decided that I needed a little sunshine on my head and had my hair highlighted. I will need to resign from my silver hair group.

On to Amy Feeling Fabulous. Amy joined our 7 Days…Feel Fabulous Program. She was our A student. It began as A+ but she had a run in with a Justin’s Chocolate peanut butter treat and caved. Only, for the moment. She was back at it the next day!

She said that SHMEC is a great gift. She checks in daily to see if something is off. What did she do the day before?

Meet Amy Grossman…

 

Our next group is starting March 27th! How is your SHMEC? Is it time to Feel Fabulous? Do you have 7 days?

Aging Optional?

Did you see the video from yesterday about our 7 Day Program to feeling Fabulous?  LOOK at my face! Yikes!

It was a little concerning and hard to post. I am 62 and can do kick ass Burpees. I feel great and I have tons of energy. When I saw my face in the video yesterday, to be honest it set me back a bit.

I am in a great time of my life.  I created this blog a few years ago and I have people who don’t know me following me. I have women who are between 40 and 79 that get up on a Saturday morning, 23 degrees and windy to workout with me. I have people who join my nutritional program and give up grains, sugar and alcohol to feel better. I recommend the best supplements and they take them.

I have a wonderful supportive family.

I am very grateful for all of it. So what are a few wrinkles and aged spots? Embrace where you are in your life! I tell myself I am a natural beauty. I am going with that.

Martini Powered PJ and Julia!

Today was a proud day for me.

My Dad took my advise and  embraced the Fit and Fabulous Nutrition Program! My niece Julia has been on the program for over a month.  She talks about how her stomach has never felt better now that she is completely off gluten. She also loves how the program has actually helped her save money.  It makes me happy that they are doing so well and I appreciate their trust in me.

Here is their stories! A fun video to film today!

I Love Katie Horner’s (another fabulous niece) art work in the background!

Thanks Mom for being our photographer!

Some days you just need chocolate.

Happy Valentine’s Day! Day 24!

I am not a big Valentine’s person. I felt it would be nice to have a treat for dessert tonight. I made Guilt Free Chocolate pudding recipe from Eat For Your Gut by Dr. Nicole Rivera. I added chopped nuts and silvers of 85% Cacao.

I also made my Energy Bites. Quick and easy snack. Here is the basic recipe.

Have you checked in with your SHMEC?

SHMEC…SLEEP HUNGER MOOD ENERGY CRAVINGS

Day 20 of no gluten, sugar or alcohol. My SHMEC is great!!!

You are in balance when your SHMEC is in balance. I have been off gluten, sugar and alcohol for 20 days. I feel so much better. I am sleeping, the hot flashes have lessen and have lost the stomach bloat.

Still a slight agitation in the evening when I like a glass of wine at dinner. Rehab is 28 days so it is okay. It is getting better. I have found some good substitutions…. Golden milk, kombucha, a nice cup of tea.

Love The Ghee!

I started making ghee a few months ago when I decided to increase the fat in my diet. I LOVE IT! I blend it in my morning coffee with coconut oil. I sauteed apple and nuts in ghee to add to my breakfast. I sauteed tofu, cashews and rosemary in it for an afternoon snack. It makes everything delicious!

Adding more fat to your diet, helps your hormones stay in balance.

  • Ghee has a high smoke point. It is excellent to cook with.
  • Ghee is rich in Vitamin A, D and E.
  • Ghee can be used by people with dairy sensitivity. The lactose and casein is removed during the straining process.
  • Ghee made from happy grass fed cows contain CLA, Conjugated linoleic acid. CLA may actually reduce blood pressure, cholesterol and tumors. It has also been helpful in weight loss, reducing inflammation and body fat.
  • Ghee contains Butyrate which may improve colon health and digestion.

The best part, it is DELICIOUS and you can keep it on your counter in a pretty Ball jar!

Embrace The Ghee

Embrace The Ghee

It is easy to make ghee. Take a pound of organic unsalted butter, (grass fed butter is even better) and put it in a pot on a low temperature. I let it cook for about 15 minutes and strain it through cheese cloth to remove all of the toxins from the butter. My friend Dr. Deb Kern has a great video on making ghee. She loves to chant and send out goodness while the ghee is simmering. It is a spiritual practice for her.

Fit and Fabulous Fat Burner!

SHMEC!

SHMEC!

Have you heard of it? It sounds like a swear word, some kind of smack down. Right?

According to Dr. Jonny Bowden,  SHMEC- ” the MOST POWERFUL BIO FEEDBACK SIGNALS that tell you how your body and brain are progressing during your metabolic upgrade.  Your metabolic upgrade is the process of changing into a FAT BURNER!

SHMEC stands for sleep, hunger, mood, energy, cravings.

Check in with your SHMEC daily. It will tell you whether you are burning fat or back to burning sugar.

If you are in Fat burning mode:

Sleep soundly through the night with no night sweats. (Menopausal women as well, decreased night sweats!)

Hunger will be at a minimum. You will have a feeling of emptiness not irritability, urgency, low blood sugar or a feeling of fogginess. You will be in a balanced state.

Mood will be stable. You will feel in control with more self confidence.

Energy will be consistent and abundant . You will develop a feeling of Lightness.

Cravings will be almost non-existent. You will be amazed that you can pass up on snacks that would have taken you down in the past.

Bonus Round…You will be losing Fat including that stubborn fat around the middle.

The BIG QUESTION! How do I become a FAT BURNER?

Start with the 7 day My Smart Start. It takes 7 days to change from a sugar burner to a fat burner! You can totally change your life in 7 days. I will  support you along the way. We also have a wonderful facebook community where we post and create a Fit and Fabulous Lifestyle together. You are not alone. Do you want to be healthy and fit in 2017?  I think it is time!
