Be encouraged today. We have to overcome all distractions and spend more time with Jesus. There are some people in our lives that causes us not to hear God. God will move people and things out of our lives that distract us. Anything we focus on more than God is a distraction. Social media, cell phones, family, friends and the list goes on. What is distracting you from God? Love and blessings to you all. Enjoy your blessed weekend! <3

When I first came across this I thought it was a joke.  However, this is a real thing.  I am not sure how I feel about it.  I am a mother and one side of me thinks its wonderful while the other side of me thinks it is a little weird.  Either way, KUDOS to this mom for coming up with such an original idea!







Can You Really Drink Yourself Skinny? Find Out Here….

By | Detox, Digestion, Energy, Health, Toxins, Weight Loss | No Comments

 

I am so excited to share with you a hidden secret that should not be a secret at all – you CAN drink yourself skinny. Many of my clients have suffered from dehydration which led to poor digestion, acne, lack of energy, increased cellulite and of course, the inability to lose weight. I don’t want this to be the case for you!

Most experts say we should drink at least 64 ounces of water per day. Are you drinking this amount? If you are – awesome, we’re going to make it taste even better! But if you are not drinking water because you hate the taste, it’s okay – we’re going to fix it so you enjoy it!

STAYING HYDRATED WITH WATER:

THE IMPORTANCE OF H2O

Water is the basis of all life, and without water you wouldn’t even be able to survive. The muscles in your body contain 75% water, your blood which transports nutrients contains over 80% water, your lungs that give you oxygen contain 90% water, your bones are 25% water, and your brain that controls your entire body and systems contains over 75% water.

So without water, how do you think your body will run? Will you feel healthy if you are dehydrated? Absolutely not!

In order to be healthy, the body needs to keep hydrated. Adding fruit-infused water to your daily routine is an excellent way to not only stay properly hydrated, but also add in vital nutrients.

The amount of water you need to consume depends on your weight, but a good estimate is half of your body weight in ounces.

You are not just what you eat, you are what you drink!

 

WHY INFUSED WATER IS GOOD FOR WEIGHT LOSS

  1. Boosts your metabolism

  2. Naturally helps you release cellulite

  3. Flushes toxins from your system

  4. Improves digestion

  5. Keeps you hydrated with natural minerals and vitamins from fresh vegetables, fruits or herbs

  6. Helps to restore your energy after a workout or sweating

HEALTHY TIPS TO STAY HYDRATED

Drink a large glass of infused water upon waking. You can add a dash of sea salt for a boost of minerals, which is great for reducing exhaustion and wonderful for weight loss.

Drink infused water 45 minutes before a meal as hydration is key for proper digestion and wonderful for combating sugar cravings.

Make a huge pitcher of infused water and leave it in the fridge. I suggest buying a BPA-free pitcher or use a glass pitcher or mason jars and have the water ready for you to consume. When you have infused water ready to go, you will drink it instead of something else.

Buy a BPA-free bottle such as Nalgene or you can buy a glass travel bottle and make sure you drink your 64 ounces per day. If you are looking to banish cellulite and lose weight, aim for 80 ounces, especially during the summer months or if you work out daily.

If you find yourself hungry, have a fruit-infused water with cinnamon to balance blood sugar. Did you know often signs of hunger are really signs of dehydration?

Drink a gallon of infused water per day for the ultimate weight loss flush.

Infusing Water at Home

By adding your favorite fruits, veggies and herbs to your water, your body will benefit by staying hydrated and absorbing the vital nutrients to stay healthy and happy.

Here’s what you should buy:

Infused Water Bottles {BPA-free or glass}

Large Beverage Dispenser

Fruit Infusion Flavor Pitcher

Ball Wide Mouth Jars

You can find these items at your local health food store, department store, or click on the item above and you can buy them online.

Recipes

When making these recipes it is best to use a 32 oz. mason jar or a 32 oz. infused water bottle or pitcher.

 

Rosemary & Grapefruit: This helps to detoxify the liver while giving you an added boost of vitamin C.

1 Grapefruit, w/o the rind

1 Sprig of Fresh Rosemary

MANGO MINT: Mint is excellent for digestive ease

6-8 small leaves of fresh mint

1/2 mango, with the skin removed and cut into pieces

Cinnamon Apple Spice: great way to balance blood sugar

1/2 green apple, sliced thin

1 cinnamon stick

Detox Watermelon: the cilantro helps to detoxify the body

4 cubes fresh watermelon

6 leaves cilantro

Citrus Bliss: helps to alkalize the body

3 lemon slices

2 lime slices

Trust me; life will never be the same once you keep your body hydrated all day!!

I would love to have you journey with me on the road to health and happiness. Becoming healthy and vibrant does not have to be overwhelming especially when you have direction and support.

There are so many ways God shows love to us.  However, most of us are too busy to see it.  We just have to take a few minutes to slow down and notice the signs He sends us.  I found a stone while walking on the beach in the shape of a heart and as I picked it up I felt an overwhelming sense of peace and love.

God is goodIf you slow down you just might see a heart too.  Even if you don’t see any signs God still loves you today, tomorrow and forever more.  Check out some more hearts below.

Inspiration – How to Have Faith When Life Hands You a Poop Popsicle

By | Confidence, Faith, God, Inspiration, Jesus | One Comment

faith god jesus inspirationLife is unpredictable and it can be scary.  There are so many things that can cause us to be fearful.  We may worry about our families, job, health, and the economy.

So, what happens when life does hand us a poop popsicle?  Maybe you’re a single mother and you just lost your job.  Perhaps, you have an unfavorable medical report that is causing sleepless nights.  Maybe you just feel like you can’t catch a break and your life is just a hot mess.

While it is understandable to be upset and fearful we don’t have to be.  It is not God’s plan for us to be fearful and anxious for anything.  We are called to pray and give thanks for all that God has already done for us. (Philippians 4:6)  He didn’t have to wake us up today but He did.

We don’t have to be prisoners of fear.  By developing a relationship with God He will provide comfort and give us the peace of mind we all truly desire.  He ensures that He has our back and will never leave us. (Deuteronomy 31:6) He is faithful and loves us more than we will ever be able to understand!

The 3 Week Diet

He can always provide a way for us and gives us what we need. (Philippians 4:19) However, we have to develop a strong relationship with Him and make that relationship a priority in our life.  Comfort can only come from God.  So, seeking people, things or money to get comfort is a waste of time.  We will never find true comfort and peace of mind outside of God.

We cannot let the enemy steal our joy and destroy our spirit.  We don’t have to suffer.  Jesus came so that we may live our life to the fullest. (John 10:10)

Whatever you are going through remember it shall pass.  We need to believe deep down inside that it is all going to be OK because it is.  All things work together for our good.(Romans 8:28)

My prayer for you is that God gives you comfort through this trial of your life and He reveals a solution for you so that you can experience victory in your life today, tomorrow and the rest of your life.  In Jesus’ name …AMEN!

Mark 11:24 – “Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.”
