What’s On Your Plate??? —

What’s On Your Plate???

What’s on your plate for dinner today? Switch things up every now and then and eat a #vegan meal. Tonight I’m eating a #vegansalad with kale, cucumbers, peppers, green onions, carrots, cherry tomatoes, cashews and Tessemae’s #organic creamy ranch salad. It tastes amazing and I feel good eating it knowing that it’s packed full of nutrients, vitamins, fiber and healthy fats.

1st September 2017 Weigh Day! — September 11, 2017

1st September 2017 Weigh Day!

Happy Monday! It is day 11 of our 30 day challenge! We are already 1/3 through September!!! How has it been going? Have you been sticking to eating clean, exercising, getting adequate sleep and reducing stress? Well I know it is not easy but I promise you it is worth it. Well it’s time for our 1st weigh in!!! Weigh first thing in the morning and let me know how things are going!!! Depending on what you see when you step on the scale tomorrow will determine what your next steps are.

If you like what you see keep doing what you are doing!!! But if you didn’t see a change or if the scale is going in the wrong direction I would suggest several things:

1) Are you eating clean unprocessed whole foods? If not cut out all gmo, genetically engineered processed foods. Eat Organic or Non GMO whole foods instead.

2) Are you exercising at least 3-5 days a week? If not become consistent with this incorporating cardio, strength training, and/or HIIT training. Try to walk on your days off for at least 30 minutes to keep active.

3) Are you tracking your food intake daily? If not use MyFitnessPal, Fitbit or Fooducate apps to track your meals daily to ensure you don’t go over your calorie intake for the day?

4) Are you an emotional eater or do you feel you have a food addiction? Are you under a lot of stress? You may need to get some counseling. Getting counseling to help you work through some emotional issues is essential to your emotional health of which directly impacts your physical health. Don’t look at it as a bad thing because it isn’t. Nothing is wrong with taking care of yourself in this way. Getting counseling is an extension of self love. Call your HR dept to see if they have an EAP (Employee Assistance Program) that will give you free sessions to see a counselor. Most companies offer this as a benefit.

5) Do you find it challenging to figure out what to eat? Sometimes we need to see a dietician or a nutritionist to get a tailor made eating plan based on your health conditions, lifestyle etc… Once you have your eating plan work it!!! Most insurance plans offer over the phone Nurse/Health Coaching as a benefit. Call your health insurance to see if this is available as a covered benefit.

Remember consistency is the key! Let’s get it!!! πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸƒβ€β™‚οΈπŸ’―πŸ™ŒπŸ’ͺ

Welcome To Our September #30DayChallenge!!! — September 1, 2017

Welcome To Our September #30DayChallenge!!!

Welcome to our September 30 day challenge! I’m excited that you are starting this month off right by taking this challenge with me! This is an exciting month for me because its my birthday month and I will be turning the BIG 40!!!! Soooo I set an ambitious goal for my birthday and I’m literally 7 pounds away from it!!!! By God’s grace I will reach it by September 9th! I lost 20 pounds during the month of August! No joke and it got really real! How did you do this month? Let me know what progress you have made by responding to this post!

In this challenge we will be eating the #Keto way, eating clean (no processed food & no added sugar or starches), healthy fats including nuts and seeds, vegetables & low glycemic fruit such as blueberries, raspberries and strawberries! Our other goals for this challenge is to exercise (3-5 days weekly), eliminate/reduce stress in your life and commit to getting at least 7-8 hours of sleep daily! In addition I recommend you switching to eating organic and/or Non-GMO food. Below are labels that show you how you can identify foods that are organic and/or Non-GMO.

If you are still on the fence about starting this challenge do what you can. Start small by committing to exercising at least 30 minutes or more per day for at least 3 days per week and by eliminating all processed foods & added sugars.

Let me know if you are with me by responding to this post or by sending me a personal message by saying, I’M IN! Click on my blog website link below for the full Keto 30 Day Challenge details! As always consult your doctor before beginning this or any 30 day challenge.

It’s almost Fall time y’all!!! So let’s get it in and make my BIRTHDAY month GREAT, HEALTHY and ACTIVE! Let’s go! πŸ’ͺ
