With only 99 days left in 2019…

As a powerful woman said “Your faith must be greater than your fear” Jenifer Sincero. I have been thinking a lot about the goals that I wanted to accomplish in 2019 and the ones that I have actually accomplished. What did you set out to accomplish in January, February, March, etc? Did you have one or more goals this year that you accomplished with an accountability partner? Did you set out to accomplish a goal and you did not finish? You are not alone, I continue to work towards a healthier lifestyle and I look back sometimes and see how much I have accomplished.

If you lost your accountability partner and now it has been harder to accomplish what you set out to do, you should be so proud and thankful for all that you have accomplished. “The Universe loves a grateful person. The more you thank LIFE, the more that LIFE will give you to be thankful for” Louise hay.

If you have any questions, thoughts or suggestions for the next publication. Please comment, and as always thank you for your support.

Today is another day for Healthy Habits..Consistency!

Did you wake up with determination and ready to Shine? Do you have a New Years Resolution or an everyday resolution to be better? Do you continue to work on your Goals and Dreams? Did you know that 80% of people that set a New Years Resolution quit after the first week? I know a great community of people that are the 3% of the population that doesn’t quit and keeps on motivating everyone daily including myself.

I wake up with every morning and remind myself that my only competition is myself. Daily motivation is much needed and required to continue with any Goal that I set out to do. I Don’t worry about having a “hump” on the journey or my road to success because this only makes me stronger and wiser. I get up, dust myself off and continue. I have learned lessons from all the remarkable people that I have met in this great community.

 

What are your health Goals? How important are your Goals to you? Are you living your best life? Ask yourself these questions and whenever you are ready I am happy to have you join the community in your Health Journey.

Have a fabulous day.

 

 

 

Why do I do this?

Because I was living in a body with over 80 extra lbs that felt like a prison, because there are others in that same boat. Because I know how HARD it is to do it alone and I know it’s better when you do it with a community. 

EVERYONE should feel AMAZING and Happy in life no matter what your HEALTHY lifestyle goal looks like.

At the end of the day YOUR health is YOUR responsibility! However, I want to help you. The question is, are you willing to change, learn and do the work and follow your plan to accomplish your Goals?

ASK ABOUT MY 3 Day Trial!

Real Transformation requires Real Honesty with yourself.

So I got real with myself and reminded myself where I have been. Being overweight and unhealthy all since I was 12 years old, and being raised by a single parent who had to be aware of the prices because she was feeding 4 young ladies. Recently I have reminded myself that if it took this long to get this unhealthy the least I could do was to give myself at least half the time to get back to my healthier self before my 12th birthday.

I have been reading a few books from amazing authors such as Jen Sincero You are a Badass. I have learned quite a few things from these books and I keep learning daily. If you are anything like me where you are second guessing yourself and you think that you will never do (enter your item), then I would definitely suggest to read or listen to positive and self helping books.

While I have been consistent with my nutrition part of my health journey, I have been struck by life with a few things while being on this journey. On October 2017 I fell at work and I broke several parts of my body which was another hurdle with being able to stay consistent with my workouts. So i understand when you tell me you are hurt or you are not able to do this or that. I prefer to tell myself “What am I able to do right now?” this way I can continue to move and little by little my body has gotten stronger and I have been able to succeed and get back on track. One of the hardest things that I have been told from one or more of my doctors is “At your age, getting back to doing the things you used to do before the fall is going to be close to impossible”.

I am very grateful for all the support, the community, the love, the help and suggestions from all the friends, family, physical therapists and coaches that I am around. With this information I have been able to start to do more of the simple things that I used to do before the fall such as wearing heels, hiking, dancing. I am only getting better daily and look forward to being better with every day that passes. Please share this story with someone you know because you never know what someone can take from different life stories. Thank you for reading and supporting.

Struggles Happen… Get through it!

It has been a while since I shared on here with all of you, my apologies guys. My new goal is to write more to share more and to do more. For the past 6 months I have been struggling with life. I am not one to complain because in my mind this does nothing. I would rather grow through the struggle and listen to other people who have been through something like what I am going through. I say all this to say that I have been struggling with a few things work, family and self discipline.

First I will share that I have worked for an HMO for the past 21 years and six months ago I almost lost my career due to changes in the company. I was going to be one more statistic of someone who works their entire life for a company and then they see themselves in the unemployment line. I am fortunate to say that as of January I have been working in a new department in a more fulfilling role.

In addition to all the pressure, tension and constant worry from trying to find another job I let go of a few things in my life that make me who I am. I stopped responding to friends, going out with family and lastly being healthy with my eating and fitness. I even stopped doing what I love the most Make-Up. Over the last few months I have been able to get back on track and now I can see more of myself. I have made steps toward being healthier and happier. Everyday I strive to be better and I look forward to sharing more with all of you. If you know anyone who can be motivated or can gain from my story please share.

Less than 3 months

What will you do to Upgrade your Mindset

For those of you that have asked… I am 45 years young, and 3 years ago I started on this health journey not because I saw myself in a picture or someone told me I had to be healthy. I started because as a make-up artist I was asked to go on set at different locations and some of them required me to go up and down stairs, hills and during this time I was out of breath and I did not feel good.


When I started my journey I will have to admit is was hard to do although I had been through many, many, many diets and fads. This program was hard but not as hard as feeling down on myself when trying to  keep up with everyone on set. I kept telling myself “how do you want to feel when you go on set?” and this kept me going daily. For the other days that I needed some inspiration and motivation I went ahead and looked into YouTube for inspiration and motivation.

I started sharing my journey through Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter and a few people have supported me through this journey and others have been motivated to get halthy themselves. I upgraded my mindset to open my scope of view and allowed myself to enjoy this journey that I am on. Other people’s stories and motivation keeps me going and shows me that I am not alone and that we are in this together. “US” together will make sure that we succeed.

♥ Please share any stories of your journey or any transformations. I look forward to reading all of them.♥


Month of Love, love yourself first.

This being the Month of Love let’s continue to LOVE yourself fist so that you can love and pour all the love onto everyone else. I heard this phrase yesterday in different contexts and  decided that I will be pouring more LOVE onto everyone I come across.

I started with transforming my body on April 24th, 2014 and it has been a great journey, with this body transformation I have also transformed my mind and soul. A lot of people have asked why I wanted to loose weight since everyone feels that I was ok being the weight that I was. I chose to loose the weight not because I was sick or health problems I chose to loose the weight because I wanted to feel better about me.

For those of you that have tried diets and lost the weight and then gained back more than you lost or those of you that have lost and then just plateaued I understand you. If you could name any diet I have most likely tried it, done it and failed at it. I have chosen Herbalife Nutrition because it works for me and it’s all nutrition, which makes a difference on how you take it. Just as a potato if you fry it and make French fries will be worst than f you bake the potato and eat it with healthy toppings.

I want to continue to better myself and help others in their journey, please tag a friend, a relative or co-worker that you know needs to read this because I want to help.

     Sunday September 20th, 2015 was the day that I was able to accomplish one of my new GOALS. I made it across the 5K finish line within 60:00 minutes. I was very excited, and  I felt accomplished for having finished and even more accomplished for finishing in such short amount of time. This was my first time walking/jogging a 5K. After accomplishing this DREAM of mine, I will start to train and set a new Goal for finishing my next 5K & 10K.

Thank you to everyone that has supported me through the continued Healthy  Lifestyle road!

Starting on a New Path… The road ahead!

I was going to continue with my life changing, Healthier Eating story this month.  Although I have an excellent treat for all of you. The beginnings of great motivation for all of you. From one of the ladies that I have been able teach, touch and INSPIRE!

Angelica’s Story begins like this… “In the beginning of this year I decided to make this the year of “ME”, I know that sounds selfish but in order to be able to be here in the future for my family I had to decide to make changes in my life.  It is so much more convenient to continue to stay in the same routine with no care in the world and just take pills.  But the pills only mask the problem and the problem continues to be a danger to my life.  I just thought how stupid and selfish of me to continue not to care about my own health.  I’m guaranteeing that my kids will not have me around when they are older if I keep going in this direction.  So I decided ok I have to do this, I really have to do this.  Mind you I have been on some sort of diet ALL my life since I was around 8 years old.  Always wanting to be skinnier than I was only because my sisters were so skinny and I wonder why I wasn’t.  In any case I know why I wasn’t, food has always been my crutch.  Any time I feel sad, angry, upset, and happy or I feel like I need to reward myself, it’s always been my crutch turning to food for satisfaction.  Big problem but we won’t tackle that subtext here, suffice it to say that it’s always been a negative relationship with food.  So learning to develop a healthy relationship with food is not an easy road especially when you don’t have time.  Food becomes a matter of convenience and easy fix.  Well back to my point, since I decided this is the year of “ME” I looked to Herbalife Nutrition to kick start my lifestyle change.  I’m not one to actually depend or want to depend on supplements.  This I found though works for my current life style, I have very little time to focus on ME.  I’m a working mom with all the responsibility that comes with the pressure at work and on top not only mom duties, house duties, financial responsibility, but also trying to make sure my kids do not follow my bad eating habits.  There is a lot of pressure when you are trying not to negatively influence the future of your children.  I have found that this program allows me the flexibility to focus on my eating habits as well as maintain my sanity since it is convenient I don’t have to take time away from my kids to do this.  A set of quick and easy shakes, meals, and juices that can be made in no time.  I know that I’m getting the nutrition I need along with limiting my calorie intake so that I can lose the weight.  Remember it is as simple as calories IN need to be less than the calories you burn in a day so that you can lose the weight, burning through what your body has held on to for reserves.  I’m not going to say that it has been easy or that I’m perfect at following the program exactly how it is meant to be, but it has enough flexibility so that those days that you fall prey to bad habits it is ok.  No reason why you should give up, one meal at a time as my health-coach/sister says.

I am surprised daily to see the physical, rational, and positive changes that have occurred in only 7 months.
