Low calorie, high protein dinner!

Do you ever have those nights where you feel like there is nothing in the house to cook? The best thing to do when that happens is just start pulling out whatever healthy random things you DO have and just make something up! This was my story tonight. So I ended up with tilapia, romaine lettuce, onion, a carrot, lime and a bag of steamer edamame.

I left the Romaine lettuce whole, filled then with chopped onion, long sliced carrots (so one carrot would go further) and a good amount of steamed edamame peas.... peas?
I know their soybeans, but I always want to call them peas. 

Next, season the tilapia with your favorite Mrs. Dash
(0 carbs, 0 calories, 0 sodium).

Grille fish on medium high heat 3-4 minutes, flip, continue cooking until flaky. Lay fish into romaine boats and
squeeze an insane amount of lime juice all over it.... :)

This meal was about 300-340 calories for two boats.

Fun fact about edamame "peas"....
1 cup has
12 grams complete protein
130 calories
6 grams fiber
10 grams carbs
Tons of B Vitamins
Vitamins C, K, calcium, phosphorus and potassium.
Eat up!

All of a sudden......

It's me! I've always been a smaller person, 5'4 115 ish. But.... then I met my husband and a couple years later.... boom... relationship weight. "Before I knew it" I was almost 150 pounds and depressed and crying on the floor of my closet. That lasted awhile before I did anything about it too. Finally, long story short... I got up and said, enough. It was a slow process for me personally, I lost 10 or 15, then after my wedding I got serious about working out and eating healthy. I've kept the weight off for two years. Point is, when you think you have reached bottom, you give up, or like me, you say "I'm just going to be ok with being this weight" bc I was too depressed to see any other future..... just know that if you get up and start living the life you WANT ...whatever your going through, soon enough, you'll look back and think wow, it's already been 4 weeks, 6 months, a year, and I'm actually ok :)

Fall's Skin Care Rules

When the seasons change, we all get excited to change out our wardrobe. We start moving the shorts out for jeans, the sweaters make their way back into the front of the closet, but what about skin care? Should our regimen change due to the weather? YES!

Here are my favorite things to do to get my skin ready for the season.

Everybody needs to exfoliate, no matter your age or skin condition. Getting better skin fast is quite easy. Just make sure to add a product that exfoliates into your daily routine, and you’ll get glowing skin in no time. Exfoliation helps skin look better right away by removing dead cells from the skin’s surface.

The air is getting drier... first thing you should do is get the humidifier turned on at home. The second thing is you can add in a super hydrator like hyaluronic filler or a hydrating serum. And of course, drink plenty of water. A person is supposed to get 1/2 their body weight in oz of water daily. For example, if you are 200 LBS, you should get 100 oz of water a day.

The summer sun has done its damage and now it's time to lighten and suppress those spots! Use products that contain Kojic Acid, Mulberry, Bearberry and Licorice to lighten brown spots naturally. Seek out a skincare professional to get your skin looked at under an ultraviolet light like a Woods Lamp. Ask them to let you take a peek, you may be shocked to see the damage your skin has endured. And as always, apply sunscreen daily.  

Along with fall comes new smoky eye makeup and dramatic eye liner. The eyes really have the attention in fall/winter makeup. Unfortunately, that’s also where the first signs of aging can occur with fine lines, wrinkles and dark circles. A quick trick to brighten your eyes is to use anti aging skin products that are specifically developed for your eyes. Use a crème that tightens around the eyes while brightening dark spots.

I'm gonna be an online wellness coach!

I'm in training to be an online wellness coach!! It's pretty exciting. :)))
 I've used Herbalife for two years now and been a distributor, but never really taken it seriously when people ask me what I've done or how I've transformed. When I stopped to think about it, I realized, I want to help these people reach their goals too. Not just give them a simple answer of  "I used Herbalife and worked out really hard". 

One thing Herbalife suggests doing is a 90 day challenge. 


Set your goal, reach your goal. 
  • Weight Loss
  • Body Fat Loss
  • Lean Muscle Gain
Work with your Herbalife Independent Distributor to make your goal a reality.

1: One to one body analysis
2: Education about nutrition and and exercise
3: Personalised program and meal plan
4: Weekly meetings with new friends on the challenge
5: Regular consultations and coach support 

This is more from a fitness standpoint (which I love) but I decided to make it more of a life change.
Add in all the little things in life that I just haven't organized yet.
SOOOOO.... on to the really personal stuff....

I've been through some real life struggles this past year and came to realization that I am the creator of my own life. The struggles I am presented with, are my own. I've had to let go of toxic people, let go of the what if's. I've battled with self esteem and image issues. I also realized that for 8 years, I have been relying on my husband to do EVERYTHING for me. When did I become this person? 

I am going to be 30 years old in four months. So, I am starting this 90 day life challenge my Herbalife team is also doing. I am going to be a strong, independent, successful woman.  AKA, get my shit together.

I'm sharing all this because I want to help others too. If anyone else out there is in the same place I am, or having your own struggles, join me.
Have faith in yourself. 

So tonight I am going to sit down and right out my goals and what is important to me. I'll post it soon. :)

Whip those brows into shape!

We've all been there..... "I'll just tweeze a couple little hairs, I'll just try to wax my brows myself".... For me, this never worked out well. I would start tweezing and never know where to stop. Before I knew it, I had lost 50% of my brows. And to top it off, I never knew how to shape them anyways, so they would end up straight with no arch.   

Insert beauty school and ca-pow! .... I was taught the proper way to shape and fill in my lackluster eyebrows. I want to share some simple tricks to get the right shape and fill in your brows. You can use whichever form of brow filler you like, there are pencils, loose shades, moose and compact style. 

(These brows have not been filled in)

1. Determine where your inner brow should end. Hold a straight edge, such as an eyebrow pencil or a ruler, vertically in front of your face. 
Line it up so that it touches the outermost of edge your nose and the inside of your eye. This line will determine where your eyebrow should start.
Mark that spot with an eyebrow pencil. Repeat for the other eye.
2. Determine where your outer brow should end. Angle the straight edge further so that it touches the outermost edge of your nose and also passes along the outermost edge of your eye. This tells you where the eyebrow should end.
Mark this point with your eyebrow pencil.
Repeat with the other eye.

3. Determine where your arch should peak. Angle the straight edge so that it lines up with the outermost edge of your nose and the outermost edge of your iris. 

It's very important that you look straight ahead — both your face and your eyes should be looking directly forward at the mirror.
Wherever the line intersects your eyebrow is where the peak of your arch should begin at the top border of the eyebrow.
Mark that spot with your eyebrow pencil.
Repeat for the other eye.

4. Pluck the strays that fall below the line and outside the marks you've made. 

Consider your face shape.
Certain brows better compliment specific face shapes.
To minimize the curve of a round face, direct the outer third of the brow towards the top of the ear.
If the face is square, direct it toward the middle of the ear. This helps balance the face.
If the face is long, keep the brow more straight across, directing it above the ear.
An oval face already looks balanced, but to enhance this harmony, you can direct the outer third towards the ear lobe.

Everyday Maintenance

1. Trim your brows. You may find that hairs are within your ideal shape, but are just too long. Use a pair of eyebrow trimmers to clean up your look. Using a brow brush, brush the hairs upward. Cut the hairs that extend beyond your natural hair line.

2. Fill in sparse spots. If your brows are too light (or dark), fill them in with an eyebrow pencil.
If your brows are fair, choose a pencil two shades darker than your hair.
(If you have dark hair, go two shades lighter.)
Hold your skin taut at the temple, and line softly along the upper edge of your brow. Then, line along the bottom edge.
With feathery strokes, fill in between the two edges.
Remember to blend!

If you don't have an eyebrow pencil, substitute matte eyeshadow.

3. Use a clear gel to set. Brush the hairs how they naturally lie and apply gel to set the hairs in place. Clear mascara can double as a brow gel.
This also prevents smudging, if filled in.

Are you on the juice?!

Get on the juice! It's good for your skin :)

With juicing being all the rage right now, and my love for trying out anything new and on the rise.... I decided to get at it. I love it. I can't believe all the fruits and veggies I get in my diet now.
 I watched the docu-drama by Joe Cross, "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead".
 Long story short, he describes the healing and health benefits from juicing. This got me to thinking about skincare (of course) and all the problems we try to fix only from the outside. 

Fruits are a great source of antioxidants and phytochemicals, fiber, potassium, vitamin C, folate and so much more. They protect against degenerative diseases and can help enhance skin radiance. Eating fruits every day will also help in hydration, which is crucial for the skin. Choose a variety of fruits to benefit from all they have to offer.
  • Citrus fruits, such as oranges and lemons, have an especially positive effect on the skin, because they are full of vitamin C, potassium and citric acid.
  • Apples help prevent cell and tissue damage, and contain collagen, elastin and pectin.
  • Pomegranates and berries are packed with antioxidants, contain vitamin A and beta carotene, and fight free radicals. *
So I thought I would look deeper into the whole idea that you could juice away whatever ails you....
 Acne, age spots, Eczema, dull skin... etc....
Here are some juice recipes I found that claim to aid in healing your skin.
(I have adjusted the recipes to fit my needs LOL)



 Don't forget to grab your juicing buddy! It makes it more fun.

 So I know it's not the same as Moscato ladies.... nothing is.... :) no need to compare

30 before 30 -- Go to a concert and learn all the songs beforehand



I had such a great time with my "mom" Dawn. Anytime we go anywhere together, people always assume she's my mother. So we just go with it! Before the concert I downloaded all his albums and listened non stop. :) I liked his music before, but now I'm REALLY into it! Randy Houser was his opening act and he gave a good show too. 

Thank goodness we had awesome people from Paris, MO sitting behind us, made for a really good time. 

I'm officially addicted to going to concerts now, it's awesome to hear a song on your playlist all the time and then actually see the person singing it in real life.
