Fit and Fabulous Lovely Elaine!

Elaine Milner, 79 came to my outdoor workouts about 3 months ago. She felt she was beginning to lose her balance and flexibility. Her daughter Jennifer encouraged Elaine to try my program. The first day I was concerned because her balance was off. Elaine kept at it and within 2 weeks she was so much better!

You don’t want to move like an old person. WORK ON YOUR BALANCE!

Here is LOVELY ELAINE…

She also joined my 7 Days…Feel Fabulous Program. I designed the program to help get your hormones in balance so you feel your best. You lose your sugar cravings, sleep through the night and you might just lose the nagging aches and pains.  “I felt so much better within a couple of days. The gas and bloat were gone. ”

It is time to Lighten up in so many ways. It is springtime. Fit and Fabulous Lovely Elaine shows that it is possible and FUN at any age! I am so grateful that she is part of my Program.

Love,

Mary

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?

Joyce is feeling fabulous!

Do you have aches and pains that you think you just have to live with? Watch our video, Joyce turned things around quickly. “It is Miraculous!”

Joyce Plaza, 65 started working out with me during the summer. She was reluctant at the time because she had issues with her back. I told her about Foundation Training and how I finish every workout with Foundation Training. She also had aches and pains that she thought she would just need to deal with the rest of her life.

Joyce always considered herself a healthy eater. When she heard about the 7 Day program, she was all in. She wanted to raise the bar for herself.

Joyce just finished the 7 Day…Feel Fabulous Program. She is going to continue on for 30 days! Joyce’s SHMEC is in check! By the way, Joyce takes the best supplements on the planet!

Listen to her story! “It is Miraculous!”

Interested in feeling your best? Check out the 7 DAY…Feel Fabulous Program.

“Keeper of the Keys.”

(Thomas likes to eat from the top down.)

I am in charge of the food in my house. I shop, cook and serve the food. There is a lot of power in that. As you know, I have basically gone no gluten, no sugar and now one glass of wine.  My family is mostly gluten and sugar free.

This morning I made Thomas his shake along with smoked salmon, goat cheese, ghee on the rosemary blender bread. He ate the whole thing. I could give him a bowl of cereal and he would eat that too. The smoked salmon is a much better choice for him.  Thomas has had so many medical issues in his life. His health and well being is very important to me. He takes the best supplements on the planet as well.

Smoked salmon , goat cheese, grain free bread! Great way to start your day!

Sleep through the night!

I slept through the night last night. What a blessing!

Yesterday, I went out to lunch with my sisters, Mom and Dad. We are celebrating Mom’s birthday which is Saturday. We are having a dinner then. Yesterday was just a sneak preview. Coming off my 30 Days of no gluten, sugar, alcohol I have decided to be very mindful of what I am eating and drinking.

My family all had wine with lunch and dessert. I  had a wonderful time.  I had a club soda with lemon and lime and coffee with no dessert. It didn’t bother me at all. I didn’t feel like I was missing anything. It feels like a HUGE Break through!

Last night with dinner, I enjoyed my glass of wine. AND I slept through the night. I know keeping in Balance is Key!

Remember SHMEC, your medical markers?

Sleep, Hunger, Mood, Energy, Cravings

 Do you feel off? Not sleeping, Cravings? Tired?

I have put together a 7 Day Jumpstart to feeling fabulous. NOW is the perfect time to start. You can change things around in a short period of time. I am here to help you along with Holistic Chef Ivone who will make sure you are eating delicious foods. It is So much more than Chicken breast and broccoli.

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.

I had a break through!

Yesterday on Day 22 of no gluten, sugar or alcohol I had a break through. I have been fighting the program just about the whole time. I don’t especially like rules even my own rules.

I have been agitated and stuffing myself. I am stuffing myself with good things, blueberries, red peppers, carrots… Whenever I go to cook I start eating. I decided yesterday to stop it. I feel so much calmer since then. I love to chew gum as well. It is the same kind of habit. Yesterday, I slowed down, sat down and ate my meal or snack. I enjoyed my meals so much more. Mindfulness.

I also spent 15 minutes sitting on my cushion in my bedroom. I say I am going to meditate on a daily basis but I don’t. It is so very helpful.

These past 22 days have not been super easy. You know what? I do feel so much better. Why do I fight it???My sleep, my  body , my energy is fabulous! I want to tell everyone. Do you suffer from aches and pains, insomnia, lack of energy? Get off the grains, sugar and alcohol and see how you feel. I am telling you it is so worth it!

Happy Healthy Hormones Day 18

Day 18! I am feeling so much better about all of this. Thank God!

The past 8 months, I have increased the healthy fat in my diet. FYI, I had a physical last week and blood work. My numbers are better than they were last year! My total cholesterol  is about the same. My HDL and LDL ratio is below average risk! I am proud to say my Vitamin D level is 60!

What I am doing works for me and I think it will work for you as well. More about that later on. Launching an exciting new program.

I wanted to write about portion control and my new love of wide mouth BALL jars! Increasing the fat in your diet also increases the calories if you are not careful. Yes, calories do count! I have started to divide my food into the jars. It is perfect when you want to grab a quick snack or a meal for that matter.

This morning, I made coconut banana pumpkin puree and sent it with Thomas for a healthy snack. I divided the rest into perfect portion control jars. It just makes me happy to open up my refrigerator to see all of those jars filled with nutritious delicious food!

Love the Ball Jars!

Love the Ball Jars!
