Happy cheering celebrating success woman at beautiful beach suns

Special: free shipping for orders over $75. Offer ends June 17th. Call or email for other special deals this summer!

It is finally getting warm and I am so excited about all the activity! I love picnics, parties, seeing family and friends and travel. We have some great trips to look forward to. I just went to Buffalo NY, Miami is next then Fort Worth, Orlando and in the fall, Zurich.

I teach fitness, and keeping in shape is so much more fun in the warm weather and I do push myself with the nice weather. I have a great life! My birthday comes amongst all the excitement, and so I have been doing some reflection and contemplating on how to look and feel 10 years younger. I’m a little shocked by the number, so I am sharing with you my plan and will suggest these steps to my clients. Who doesn’t want to look and feel fabulous especially in the summer?

Step 1: Make a decision to get healthy and stay healthy. Do not get carried away by all the festivities. It is very difficult to get all the nutrients we need from the food we eat when we dine out so often. In addition, in the summer, We tend to eat more, try new foods and drink more. Consider this: just one beer every day can add a pound every 10 days. That can really add up.  Decide to omit one indulgence every day that adds 300 calories and you have LOST 1 GREAT pound every 10 days! How easy is that? (My indulgence was always a peanut butter cup.)

Step 2: Commit to filling in those gaps with a good supplement program. What to take? So many years ago, I had a very dramatic change in my health when I started on a Shaklee supplement program. I was a very unhealthy nurse in my 20’s, getting the flu more often than I was well. A very kind person had me fill out an assessment of symptoms and recommended a Shaklee program based on what my body was telling me. What was profound about that exercise was I gained knowledge about some amazing natural options.

I regularly refer back to that assessment to see what I can do naturally for pain, allergies, PMS. Over the past 28 years, the results from supplements surpassed my expectations.

Step 3: Reset your body in 5 days. We all get off track and then we don’t feel good in our clothes, we have pain, we think foggy, or can’t sleep well. Having experienced a reset,  I can say I just love how I feel by day two. This 5-day reset allows you to reduce cravings and get rid of that bloat while feeling satisfied! You drink 3 Shaklee Life Plan Smoothies a day and take the Vitalizer Strip plus graze on vegetables, fruit and some protein. It’s only 5 days and it just turns your life right around again!

Step 4: Get into action. No matter how busy you are, plan your exercise time. It isn’t selfish or a time waster. We now know how vital it is to walk, run, bike, play tennis, and do cardio types of exercise everyday. Keep moving. Your heart muscle loves to be challenged so it can stay strong. Resistance exercises add skeletal muscle and can be as easy as planks, wall squats, wall push ups, the triceps dip exercise on a chair. Also, yoga is fabulous because it uses your own body weight to build muscle. Even if you do exercise a little now, continually challenge yourself. It is not only good for the body, it is good for the mind!

Olympian Margaux Isaksen is an example of doing these steps. She is on the Shaklee Pure Performance Olympic team going to Brazil this summer. She eats well and takes Shaklee’s pure products that give her the cutting edge for the world sports stage.

Woman with sun-shaped sun cream on tropical beach

You’re off to your beach. You’ve just lost 10 pounds, your clothes are looking great on your new trim body.

What shall I pack? Consider packing a trim mindset.

It does not take long when we are out of our daily habits to lose ground and regain those 10 pounds! Here are 8 tips to help you stay on track:

1. You accomplished your goal by becoming aware of what habits needed to change, what were those habits? Perhaps, it was drinking 2 glasses of wine everyday. Make a list so you can, with a mindset decide, beforehand what you need to do to keep that weight off.

2. Check out where you are going. What kind of food do they have there? What
are the best restaurants for healthy, tasty food? Don’t go there blindly. Find our what you want to eat beforehand, and be positive! Be a foodie about what is healthier.

3. Create a journal about which local foods you love and that love you, and get recipes to explore when you go home.

4. Have packaged smoothees once a day, preferably at breakfast to start your day and your blood sugar off right. Shaklee 180 Smoothee Packets work well for me.

5. Don’t leaving snacking to chance, carry snack bars, nuts or what else is portable.

6. Take your vitamins, keep your body’s energy consistent that will effect your food choices. We all know how our willpower is when we are crabby, tired or feeling “off.”

7. Drink enough water, best if it is lemon water. This will keep your body alkaline. This strengthens the immune system.

8. Avoid sugary foods, that will effect your mood and enjoyment. Sugary foods will affect your immune system for things like sinus infections. Your body is out of it’s normal habit with the travel, and lots of sugar makes you feel even more out of it! Carry around Shaklee’s Optiflora, it will help with sugar cravings and immune system.

The right mindset about travel and celebrating will make a huge difference in how your trip goes. It is no fun being sick in a hotel room on your dream vacation!

I have been thinking about the smoothie craze. People ask me if they are good or bad? Or what is my favorite one? All fruit? All vegetable? They want to know my opinion, which ones are good and what may be missing from theirs.

I tell people when they start looking into purchasing smoothie, they should find out how much protein, fiber, carbs and leucine it contains and make it count.  

One example of a guaranteed supply of essential nutrients in a convenient form on a consistent basis is the Shaklee 180 Energizing Smoothees. One Shaklee Smoothee’s nutrients consists of:

  • Protein: 4 eggs-foundation of health
  • Fiber: like in 1 cup of broccoli, 1 cup of cauliflower and 1 cup of pineapple, colon health, both kinds of fiber
  • Calcium: 2 cups of milk
  • Vitamin D: 10oz of tuna
  • Leucine protein: 5oz of chicken breast-preserve lean muscle

If you were to buy this at your local store, you would spend approximately $21.00 vs. the $2.93 one serving of a Shaklee Smoothee cost. I don’t know about you, but that’s a HEALTHY BARGIN! 

A study conducted by the South Shore YMCA analyzed two groups who worked out and ate the same diet. However, the group who took the Shaklee Smoothee with the Vitalizer supplements once a day, lost 25% more fat and gained 50% more muscle than the other group.

So is not only a HEALTHY BARGIN, but it’s also gives you a HEALTHY BODY! 

So today, and everyday, have a peace of mind knowing you are getting a guaranteed supply of essential nutrients in a convenient form on a consistent basis.

It’s summer, time for fun, however work and obligations don’t allow us to take a LONG enough vacation. In fact, this time of the year, reminds me of when I was a child and wanted to go out and play – I would rush, rush to get my chores done or I would miss the fun! Now I go away on weekends and have only 5 days to get my work done and I feel that same pressure.  

So summer isn’t always so relaxing, in fact it can be stressful.  So here are some tips to help reduce stress as we balance the joys of summer living with our life obligations.

  • Re-train the brain: Meditation along with deep breathing will reduce anxiety. Research suggests that meditation can change the brains neural pathways. Our brains are like a field of grass, when we walk on one path (have a repetitive thought, good or bad), it creates a grove in the brain. Meditation will help create a beneficial one versus a reactive one.

    Meditation is as easy as: Sit with your feet on the floor. Close your eyes, place one hand on your chest and one on your belly. Breathe and focus on bringing the breath down to your belly for a deeper breath. Inhale through the nose; exhale through the mouth saying AAAH with a sound. With each breath, elongate the exhale. Now breathe in peace and open your eyes! 
      

  • Tune into your body: Take a few minutes at work, or on the subway and notice areas where you are holding tension.  Focus on those areas and use your breath to release the stress. Movement forms like Qigong and Yoga are great ways to gently release stiff muscles. However, sometimes a great run, body workout or quick walk is the way to go. Stretch before. Contracted muscles are shortened muscles and can cause pain and limited movement, which why stretching before an energetic workout will help your muscles recover and you won’t have pain, tension and feel stressed! Aerobic exercise for 30 minutes a day will release endorphins, a natural high!
        
  • What to eat to reduce the stress impact:  
    • Complex carbs like whole grain breads and oatmeal increases the level of serotonin, which is a calming brain chemical. In addition, whole grains contain Vitamin B, Magnesium and more, that help calm the nerves.
    • The ingredients in the Shaklee 180 SmootheeShaklee Meal in a Bar andShaklee Snack Bars, balance blood sugar and level off levels of cortisol and adrenaline.
    • Oranges: Vitamin C can help curb levels of stress hormones and improve the immune system. Take Vitamin C before a stressful task and you’ll reduce the level of cortisol.
    • Omega 3: Eating 3oz of cold-water fish, like salmon, tuna and mackerel, twice a week prevents surges of stress hormones.
    • Pistachios, walnuts, and almonds protect against the effects of stress by reducing inflammation. But remember, only a handful, since they contain lots of calories.
    • Raw Vegetables: A pure mechanical way for reducing stress. Munching celeries or carrots, helps release clenched jaw and ward off tension.
           
  • Supplements: Since we don’t eat perfectly everyday, a sophisticated supplement program is no longer a luxury but a necessity in this fast pace world, no matter the season. Let me introduce you to a product I love to recommend, The Vitalizer. Here’s a video that talks about it more, http://feelbetterin30days.com/dianarn
