My weight loss journey has been slow…. super slow… I breast fed for 20 months, yep and proud to do so BUT my body would not let go of the weight. So when I finally stopped I still wasn’t losing.. oh yay.. but I did NOT give up, I can officially say in the last month my body has regulated from nursing and my metabolism is back on track and I stepped on the scale this morning to see a number I haven’t saw in a very, very long time. I’m proud of myself, my journey even slow it’s happening, I feel FANTASTIC, I have energy, I workout, I eat right and take some certain amazing health products! So you guys, don’t quit, don’t give up, you got this!! Keep an eye on me because I have some major goals I aim to crush this year!
You, yes YOU! Not your neighbor, not your friend, not your sibling… YOU! Get healthy for YOU, be your best for YOU! Do it because you love yourself enough to change! That’s all, no other reason is needed! ❤️
If you’re like most people I know you have a hard time getting all of your daily allotment of water in, so, for the month of November I’m doing a challenge to keep us hydrated!
Did you know you need to drink HALF of your body weight in water every single day to stay hydrated? Yep, so let’s say you weight 150lbs you need to drink 75oz per day! It is completely doable once you get into the habit of it.
Come join the Challenge, it’s on Facebook in my Health and Fitness Motivation group- you can join us here!

Coconut Water Benefits:
✔️Low in calories
✔️More potassium than 4 bananas!
✔️Full of electrolytes
Drink it alone or make a smoothie with it and enjoy the benefits!
Coconut Strawberry Smoothie:
- 1 cup coconut water
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- 1/2-1 tbsp honey
Blend all ingredients. Makes one serving.
Good For You Green Smoothie:
- 1 cup coconut water
- 1 cup spinach/kale mix
- 1 pear
- 1 peach
This was quite delicious but if you don’t want a strong “green” taste I would omit the kale and just use spinach.
And so it begins … today.. our Walking Challenge! We’re on our way to walk 160 miles in just 61 days, can we do it? Yes, yes we can! I am REALLY excited about this challenge, I absolutely love walking, it’s my favorite form of cardio and a total stress reliever and it’s even more fun when it’s a challenge! We will start this first week with 10 miles this week, you can walk, run, jog, hit the treadmill or a walking path- whatever you want to do (feel free to add in extra miles as well) just keep track of your totals. I love my blog followers and want to encourage you to join us over on the event page so I can get to know you as well! Head on over and post your progress here.
