Elevated Vitality – Women’s Wellness Community

I am very excited to have launched my Women’s Wellness Community this week!!!! You can find it linked HERE. I am really excited to have this group going as part of my big picture vision, which is to offer Women Wellness Coaching, and Lifestyle Designer services.

I am so excited to give back to others, and to help them get through situations and changes in life with the assistance I wish I had when I was younger. It’s tough to go through things like depression and anxiety because of bad relationships, weight gain, traumatic accidents etc while feeling like you have no one to turn to because your friends and family have a hard time understanding. This is why I am creating a coaching business to help Women turn their lives around, and create the beautiful life that they envision for themselves through tools, programs, and support.

This is also why I have created my Women’s Wellness Community. It is a free group where Women can collaborate, support each other and have a safe place to work on self improvement. We are also starting a Book Club in February, in which we will read a wellness or self improvement book that has been chosen by group vote, and at the end of the month we can go over the book and choose one for the next month. I look forward to hearing during the month how the book is helping each person understand themselves better, and what they are learning and implementing. We are taking book suggestions and votes until the end of day Monday, January 25th. Feel free to Join us in my Elevated Vitality – Women’s Wellness Community group 🙂

I’m not making New Year’s Resolutions….instead, I’m upgrading my Wellness Lifestyle Routine!

Good evening and Happy New Year!

This is an exciting time of year, where people get revved up to make New Year’s Resolutions and all kinds of new goals…..which often get left by the wayside a few weeks into the new year. According to research, only 8% of people actually achieve their New Year’s Resolutions and Goals! That is pretty pitiful, considering we have the capability to completely change our lives. So why aren’t people achieving their goals?

A New Year’s resolution is a tradition, most common in the Western Hemisphere but also found in the Eastern Hemisphere, in which a person makes a promise to do an act of self-improvement or something slightly nice, such as opening doors for people beginning from New Year’s Day.[1]

I myself have made New Year’s Resolutions many times, only to realize later that I tried to do too much at once, instead of focusing on one goal at a time, or one step at a time.

Now, in the start of 2016, I’ve decided not to make resolutions. Instead, I’m focusing my attention on MAKING MYSELF A BETTER VERSION of who I was yesterday. After all, what are we achieving if we are not taking action to learn, grow, and excel towards our goals?

This year, I am going to spend time working towards my goals by taking actions that are specific to my goals. For instance: I love to read. I want to read more often, so I plan to read things that will further my knowledge in things like cooking and exercise because eating clean and getting fit are two of my big picture goals.

I also plan to exercise more often and get outside to try new trails for hiking, snowshoeing and running to help me get in shape and increase my fitness level.

I want to educate myself on techniques to simplify life and eradicate mental illnesses such as anxiety and depression so I can better help my clients who want to change their lives.

I’m working on a 28 DAY HEALTHY HABIT CHALLENGE to start the year off right by creating positive habits that will last 🙂

How would you like to try being Vegan and eating Plant Based for a month? Thousands of others are giving it a try HERE.

Comment below and let me know what Healthy Habits you want to master, and let’s try them together this month!

How embracing positive habits can improve your life

Have you ever had a moment where you see someone else displaying a bad habit that you yourself have, and you look at them thinking, “wow, that’s no way to act!” Sometimes it takes seeing someone else doing something that we do, to realize that we don’t want to act that way.

I know some people who don’t even realize that their behaviour or actions are no exactly ideal, and it’s only when they see if from someone else that they understand what the problem is. Regardless of how we realize that we need to upgrade or change, I believe that being the best version of ourselves is the best way to live.

It takes time to change old habits, but making positive changes in my own life, has been the best thing I’ve ever done for myself. I’ve been working at being very self-aware, and conscious of the things I say and do. Just recently my mom has told me how much she thinks I’ve changed, and how proud she was. I was really proud to hear that, because I’ve been working really hard.

Just this weekend I realized myself how much I have changed. From old habits of being too opinionated and blunt, to being mild mannered and only sharing relevant opinions, or keeping them to myself, I couldn’t be happier as I feel amazing. My “old self” would have said that she didn’t really care what people thought, because they either liked me or didn’t. My “new self” thinks that is really not an appropriate way to behave, and I’d rather be classy, and set a good example.

One of the biggest side effects I’ve noticed of my self improvement, is how positive my life has become, and how absolutely HAPPY I am, every single day! My goodness, it’s like I’ve done a 180 degree turnaround. From dealing with depression and anxiety, and feeling hopeless about my life, to realizing that life is exactly what I make of it, and by choosing positive thoughts and actions to fill my day, I can now say that life is amazing, and so wonderful.

Through these personal changes, I have come to know that I want to create a Wellness Lifestyle Program to help other women who are filled with self-doubt realize that they don’t need to feel that way. It is an absolute honor to help others change their lives, and live happily as I have done for myself. I can’t wait to make this difference in the lives of those who WANT change, are READY for change, and who want to be the best version of themselves that is possible!

If you’ve ever felt any kind of doubt yourself about getting off the “misery merry go round”, believe me, YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE! You can change it today! Don’t wait to live a life that you love, because every day you spend feeling unhappy, or hopeless, is one day you could have spent making happy memories. Why not spend each day feeling wonderful?

12 Days of Pre-Christmas Detox

detox

Have you ever thought about doing a Detox BEFORE Christmas Holidays?

I came across this  pre-Christmas Detox, and decided I am going for it. What could happen? I’ll get healthier. Bonus. Sure there’s going to be a little planning and work involved, but that will make the end result better.

Here’s a little bit about the Detox:

For those of you looking to head into the holidays stronger and healthier than ever we have composed a 12 Days of Detox Challenge!! This group will be running from December 1st to 12th, here we can all work together to keep it clean for the first 12 days of the month… before that Christmas food and drink come on in full strength. Please feel free to join us on our 12 days of detox! Enjoy 12 days of holiday themed smoothie recipes and 12 days of eating clean to prepare our bodies for the Christmas season!!

 

Prepare your body with this beautiful cleanse before the eating, drinking and festivities really kick in. “Have yourself a Merry Little Detox – 12 Days of Detox.”

The challenge consists of:

1 – Start your day with the cranberry detox drink (Ask me for details on joining the facebook group where you will find these documents)

2 – Follow the Healthy Living Rules (#HLR)

         -Eat Whole foods and embrace the *Secret weapon* of no gluten,                    dairy and limiting sugar to 30g daily, not including our Juice Plus+                    complete shakes (use MyFitnessPal app for accountability)

         -Drink 1/2 gal to 1 gal (2/3L) of water daily

         – Exercise 30-90 minutes most days of the week

         – Sleep minumum of 7-8 hrs recommended nightly

3 – Track your progress by taking body measurements and photos at the beginning and end of the 12 days

4 – Take the Juice Plus+ Capsule Trio daily and drink 1-2 Juice Plus+ Complete shakes per day (ask me how to order these)

  • Periscope Video Support
  • Seasonal Recipes

 

It’s ideal to eat your Juice Plus capsules and Juice Plus Complete daily and have plenty of healthy groceries on hand. Plan to eat a protein with each meal/snack and keep in mind you may have to eat more often than usual just keep it clean. For best results replace breakfast and dinner with a fully load smoothie (check the smoothie recipe booklet in the files) and have a large, high protein lunch. In the Facebook Group files you will find HLR Guidelines, Smoothie Recipes and some clean meal recipes. Good luck and please post and share your successes and challenges as often as possible. Have yourself a Merry Little Detox!!

There is a webinar before the Detox starts:

Today’s Healthy Habit Challenge – Drink water!

Today’s ‪#‎HealthyHabitChallenge‬ is to stay hydrated consistently through the day!
GOAL: Drink 1 glass of water each hour for 8 hours consecutively.

We all know water is important to help our bodies function properly, yet most of us still don’t drink enough. Drinking enough water slowly throughout the day is vital for reducing physical and muscle fatigue, removing toxins, proper digestion, nutrient absorption, increasing concentration and alertness and so much more.

Did you know that water helps with proper circulation? The levels of oxygen in our bloodstream are greater when we are well hydrated. Our bodies burn more stored fat for energy when we have higher oxygen levels….which also increases energy and keeps us feeling full longer, which reduces our need to snack!

Low water intake actually causes fat deposits to increase! So tell me, how much water are you drinking today?!

Going Vegan – why do people judge?

I am going through what I think is a fabulous transition to become Vegan. Why? Because I support a better way of life for animals, and humans. There are many reasons why I think this is beneficial for me, and most importantly – I am trying to lead a better life.

So why is it, that people want to judge me so often for trying to be better? Is it because I don’t support animal cruelty? because I don’t want to eat chemical and hormone filled products? Or perhaps it’s because I just want to eat healthier? Continue reading
