Happy New Year!


I'll keep this sweet and short. 2016 is gone. The good. The bad. The... I'm not so sure what that was about, too! So, let's get on with it. A new year is here. We don't need to (once again) start plastering our 'so called' resolutions all over. This time around, let's start out with POSITIVE ENERGY! Not... I won't... but... I CAN & I WILL. Create your Goals... and Smash them! Vision Boards. Tasks. Sticky Notes. Art. Anything... but keep it positive. 

The Holidays have gone (or at least the ones that usually share 5-10 extra lbs with us). Now, let's get back to business! Start TODAY! Look within.

Challenge yourself. And... werk (yes, I said weRk... it's that serious!)

Tis' The Season!

I don't know about you... but FALL is my favorite season of the year! Now, me being a SoCal Lady, sure, we are 'weatherly spoiled' per say lol. We don't have real seasons. We barely get the amount of rain that is needed for optimal survival. Most of us probably underestimate the effects of the environment on our health. And, EVERYTHING is OVERPRICED and the highways don't give us a higher feeling.

But, there is a silver lining! With the millions of citizens roaming the cities, there is BOUND to be some smiles shared, sentiments expressed and cheerful gestures at this time of year! What's not to love?!

And, sure, it's only Mid November to some, but to others it's time to clear off the mantle for the new seasonal decor. Time to get those dusty recipe books out of the attic, along with those old carols you use to sing as a child. Who says we have to wait until 2 weeks before Christmas? There are people celebrating JOY & HAPPINESS year round, regardless of what their calendar says! So, this year... throw out those guidelines!

Muffin Top... Anyone?

Let me start off by saying, WE ARE ALL BEAUTIFUL IN OUR OWN PERSONAL WAYS... But, there is something that we all as a human race seem to have in common,(at some point in our lives) in our physical appearances. And that's the presence of unrelenting belly fat!! Am I right? Read on for Info & Tips on how you can combat belly fat and work on your health & wellness!

Why is it that as a baby, it seems like we are expected to have an overweight appearance, fluffy EVERYTHING & clothes that may not fit right in areas? LOL. 
That's because babies are seen as little people that, no matter what they do or how they look, remain adorable!

Well, I hate to say it... but that DOES NOT work for those of us who are, say 21+! Weight fluctuations are normal in our adult years, but belly fat is something to pay attention to and NOT underestimate!

Through research across the board, it is now being said that women with waist sizes larger than 35in and men with waist sizes larger that 40 inches have abdonimanl obesity and stand a present and very real risk of ending up with Diabetes and Heart Disease. :(  Take a moment to see why belly fat is something we all should decrease. 

I don't know about you, but being a woman in my 30s with 3 pregnancies under my belt (one of which was a multiples pregnancy), body changes were due to come. But, it wasn't until recently that I realized I am not hidden from the wrath of BELLY FAT. So, I've decided to try different things to start my personal war on stubborn belly fat. 

Of course, diet & exercise are key! But, when it Congress to the belly, a more direct approach doesn't hurt! Have you heard about wrapping your stomach? Stay tuned!

Becoming the Best in Mommyhood

Isn't it funny how it seems like anytime after age 25, all women, just appear to become labeled as a "MOM-like" person. No one actually walks up to women in the store and asks, "Excuse me, I'm sure you're a Mom, so can you tell me what juice my nephew would like?" ... Ok, wait, I take that back, I'm sure there are plenty of people who feel the need to ask that random question. (Sometimes, humans really amaze me, not in an intriguing way though lol)

For those that may not know, a lot of things are involved in turning a woman into a MOM. Ya, without all the details on anatomy and chemical inbalances that create, sometimes, pyschotic episodes (oops, I meant feminine changes and reactions to life), it's easy to prove there is not one woman that can say becoming a Mom was done in her sleep ( she'd be outright lying because everyone knows Moms dont get sleep ha)

Sometimes when I start to question HOW I have not YET found 1 grey hair (even though my mother sprouted a Lily Munster stripe at 16 yo! Whoa, right?), or how I have not aquired anything to become addicted to (which can be seen as healthy or unhealthy depending on who you ask in today's age), I can't help but to think I truly do have a higher purpose in life. Not to downplay any other moms, but ME, I'm suppose to be THAT Mom. And,  I'm suppose to have THOSE kids that stand out of the crowd. And, even after every pregnancy ( 2 singletons and 1 set of twins ) I assume it will be my last, I think on how Blessed I truly am!

So, do me a favor, if you're a MOM, next time you feel like you have been given a Gift and a Curse, because you go through so much, that you question if you were really meant to be a MOM... just do like I do. Take a few deep breaths, think on your awesomeness, sip some coffee, tea or liquid of your choice (no judgement here) and pray that your last nerve you've been hiding for years... doesn't find its way to your hidden fire! Oh, and if the kids get to level 9/10, just don't look at them anymore... works well for humans of ALL ages! 

Mom Power!
