#TuesdayTips Day! 17 Cures from HONEY & CINNAMON. #plainnsimple Steve, our HVAC guy who was at our house "saving our lives", has lost 80 pounds! He was telling me about his journey and dropped this little nugget: honey and cinnamon helped him lose weight. Wait, what? Well! I knew many of the benefits of honey and use cinnamon myself for to help stabilize my blood-sugars (I’m diagnosed: pre-diabetic) but I didn’t know the two together were the superhero duo of weight loss! So, I did what we all do: RESEARCH the sh*t out of it and learned! Thank you Steve! You just never know where you’ll learn and from whom. Here’s a fine little list: -ACNE: Make A Paste & Follow these steps on a daily b


#mondaymantra EDUCATE yourself people! We see others having success with something and we just hop on that bandwagon as if we're identical twins! As if??! ...Clearly, I'm a wee-bit emotional on this subject. This is YOUR life and your success depends on YOU. Not someone else. Seems pretty obvious when said like that eh? Then why the heck so we do that? Because it's easy. PEOPLE!!!!! STOP taking the easy way out and take some time to superficially research something BEFORE you jump on that bandwagon. Pretty please? Or...jump on and "fall off". Repeat. #jussayin #truthhurts #bandwagon #educateyourself #youdoyou


Good Thursday! This week has been a struggle to keep my inside voice in. REPEATEDLY I hear people "should", "wish", "want to..." etc. HUH? Like, really? Do you hear yourself people? My #oneminutewellness is about: getting started. Without using my nomal go-to F-word expletive: JUST DO IT! For the love of G-d! Just do it. What do you want that you do have? How do you get to that goal? Certainly not by "wishing" OY! ok...I'm getting all riled up again. Calm Karen! STEP 1. Pick a goal STEP 2. Research how to get that goal. STEP 3. COMMIT. This means you don't stop till you reach your goal. STEP 4: If need be: hire an EXPERT to help you get to your goal. Money is NOT wasted if you act

Wellness Wednesday: CARBS

It's that time again! PART 3: CARBS. First two of the macronutrients were: Protein and Fats (last 2 wellness blogs) People think that if they cut out mean-bad-carbs they'll be all skinny. NOPE! You'll just be tired, ornery, feel light-headed and feel/act "stupid". Oh yes, and let's not forget HEINOUS breath. And this is the superficial sh*t. The real bummer is that if hangin out w that lame-ass keto concept (I clearly have some feelings behind this subject eh?), you'll also send your body into a state of ketosis (look it up) which will then send your body and brain into failure. #truth 3 BASIC DIETARY CARBS: -sugars -starches -fiber CARBS ARE USED FOR: -energy -pancreas for insulin pr


Shall we call this #triceptuesday ?? What are triceps you ask? Ya know, the turkey wattle on the back of the arm? You know why it’s there? Bc the ONLY time it works is when you extend (straight ed) your Arms.


This is a consistent mantra for me lately as everything is new for me. No joke. Everything. Which is completely exhilarating yet, scary! I then followed it up with my previously discussed: "what's the worst thing that could happen?" Life is just too damn short. Ya know? ✨Make the change you want and need, to be the person you truly are.✨ #justdoit #life #nofear #nofail

Wellness Wednesday: FATS

This week's #oneminutewellness is the #second of 3 parts; This week is FATS and the next is CARBS. Why? There's a TON of misinformation, or wrong, and/or too much that it's overwhelming. #keepinitsimple What is FAT? (also called Lipids) 3 of them: -->saturated: found mainly in animal proteins & in some oils (coconut, palm, etc) AND is used by your liver to make cholesterol which is used to produce hormones: YOUR BODY MUST HAVE THIS to keep hormone production going! -->polyunsaturated: some fish oils This fat may help lower total cholesterol but limit it. Many are changed to hardened forms (hydrogenation): butter, margarine, shortening. This process adds in more fat in less space (so to spe

The time is now. You must plan...without a plan, you will definitely fail. A plan can be as simple as an #intention or as detailed as a #visionboard. A few things happen when one sets intentions. Whether you choose to believe in the @secret or not (I do bc I believe in the power of intentional energy), your focus will be defined when you start this movement. TODAY: set your plan; your intentions. . . . #everydamnday #makeaplan #intentions #oneminutewellness
