The holiday theme of 2015 is Ageless!

The other day I was crossing Bowery Street with 2 armfuls of shopping bags. They were heavy and I could not bear to wait for the next light. I had five more seconds to cross and the oncoming cars were restless. I was running out of time when a 21 year old angel grabbed my arm so I would not get hit by an approaching car. As he let go of my arm when we reached the curb, he said “You are in better shape than I am.” He was out of breath. Not sure how old he thought I was. Really did not want to know!

But I got to thinking, how are we defining age? And that the best gifts are ones that last, the gift of looking and feeling young, so we can breathe easy while racing across streets…and no one has to know how old you are!

This holiday season, give the gift of health to all of the ageless beauties and gents in your life! Here are my top 12 picks:

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!

Hear more tips on travel and health on web radio on July 23.

How about those 10 pounds? Want a convenient way to let go of them? Shaklee 180 helps you lose the fat and keep the muscle, the key to keeping your weight off.

What is holding you back from looking great in your spring clothes? Overeating.

Most of us are used to being good sometimes and overeating other times. There are a lot of reasons why we overeat, and some of them can be not eating breakfast, late night cravings, emotional eating, and triggers such as alcohol at social events.

We had a lot of success with the “Ten Pound Turnaround” and there is still time for you to join in on the fun. We are trimming our middles and learning a lot as we discover ways to overcome our urge to overeat.

Why We Overeat 

Circle the answers that apply to you:

  1. Which foods trigger overeating for you? Hard candy? Cookie? Pizza? Alcohol?
  2. What time of day are you more likely to overeat? Morning? Mid-afternoon? Evening? Between 7-10pm?
  3. What emotions stimulate automatic behavior to overeat? Sadness? Anxiety? Fatigue?

If you circled any trigger foods, you’re not alone – according to FDA research, one of the biggest trigger foods is sugar. And when you add fat to that, it is synergistic.

Last night I attended an event that had macaroons and champagne. I knew that I was in trouble. What was my best option? In this case, the champagne was the better option because although it’s all sugar, the effect is not compounded by fat and sugar together, such as in the macaroons. I had a small glass of champagne and a glass of seltzer water, and it worked! I didn’t feel any urge to overeat.

If you circled a time of day that you are most likely to overeat, the best answer is to add structure and plan ahead with your diet. Eating small meals five times a day is a great way to curb cravings and avoid midday and nighttime overeating. Shaklee’s Core Energy has ginseng which helps the body adapt to stress, so your energy stays even throughout the day and your busy schedule won’t drain you and encourage overeating.

Unfortunately, many of us don’t have much control over our daily schedules, so planning meals ahead of time can be challenging. If you need to eat late at night, choose a 200 calorie snack with lots of protein and fiber such as nuts or a small portion of cheese. No matter your schedule, thinking ahead and making a plan is key and will help you avoid overeating at any time of day.

Making sure your blood sugar is even throughout the day will help you avoid a sugar crash, which makes you want to overeat. If you are an emotional eater, sticking to a balanced meal plan will make it easier to fight cravings when you are feeling fatigued, sad or anxious. High protein, high fiber meals, such as the Shaklee 180 Smoothee, will satisfy your body’s needs and keep you satiated. Adding a supplement such as the Stress Relief Complex will help prevent blood sugar spikes which leads to the “sugar blues” and causes overeating.

It’s not too late to join the “Ten Pound Turnaround” club! No matter your challenges with overeating, we will join together as a group to problem-solve and share tips and support to stay on track. The Shaklee 180 program is a great health-enhancing program so that your body starts reacting better to sugar and stress, so you can avoid pitfalls affect your health, vitality and zest!

Happy Valentines Day from my heart to your strong healthy heart!

ladderThe human heart is one hard-working muscle – even though it is actually no bigger than your fist! It is one tough muscle that beats over 100,000 times every day.

We tend to take it’s hard work for granted but once your blood pressure starts to increase and your cholesterol numbers are off, it is crucial to not to take your ticker for granted.  We talked about the ladder of health last time and how our health will change if we don’t take action. So, from high blood pressure or high cholesterol, your risk for heart attack or a stroke increases and you move to illness. We tend to think this can only happen to someone else!

What’s worse, heart attacks and strokes are the number two cause of death, and someone dies from heart disease every 7 minutes!

heart

Here are some fabulous natural approaches with regimes specifically for prevention.

OmegGuard – a complete omega 3 fatty acid that supports

CoQheartTaking Statins decreases this important energy enzyme, as does age, so it is important to take daily. Cinical tests proved Shaklee’s delivered 33 to 500% more than other brands!

Cholesterol Reduction Complex – lowers cholesterol naturally without side effects

Garlic Complex – promotes cardiovascular health by retaining normal blood pressure and cholesterol

This regime supports healthy flexible blood vessels so your blood pressure doesn’t increase and your heart doesn’t have to work so hard

SPECIAL: both combinations are currently 30% off from Shaklee with any order! Also, enjoy free shipping for orders over $75. This offer is on until February 16th.

When it comes to your heart be true by your daily actions:

1. Strengthen your heart muscle with both cardio and strength training. When you exercise know your target range. Take 220 and subtract your age age=_______ multiply that times 60 and that equals 85%% of your maximum heart rate. Read more here.

2. Strive for your ideal weight to lessen the strain on the heart. The Shaklee 180 program is fabulous for helping you lose the fat – NOT MUSCLE – (as in heart)

3. Eat to reduce inflammation, which strains the blood vessels, so try adding more veggies to your lunch and dinner.

4. Find balance and joy in your work and private life. Do you LOVE what you do? Do you have support in your private life? Be true to your heart’s desire.

Be true to you heart and I wish Much Joy this Valenties Day!

I don’t want to have any regrets this year. Being healthy is not a given – it’s something you have to work for. As the expression goes, “if you ignore your health, it will go away.” This is a great time to think about what you’ve done well, what has worked for you, and what you want to change for the better for next year. These four steps will help you feel better, look better and take control of your destiny.

1. What did you accomplish this year? Instead of focusing on what you didn’t do, it’s time to find your supportive voice. Take stock on what you did accomplish this year. Did you start to exercise once a week? You can burn 350 calories with a strength training class and lose a pound every 10 weeks. It is a good trend. If you did nothing, and lose muscle every year and you’ll gain fat by sticking with the status quo! Ouch!

So for the next week, I want you to write down what you did well in 2014. Build that supportive voice muscle!

2. Do a Wellness Evaluation with an RN and health coach like myself. Issues like stress, digestion, being sick too often, brain fog, migraines and weight loss do well with looking at lifestyles issues and a stress reduction program. The Wellness Evaluation I work with will get to the source of most health challenges and help you find what nutrients you are missing (and the supplements and foods will fill in the gaps), what foods you are sensitive to, and pinpoint the bad habits that are detrimental to your health.

The Wellness Evaluation is a great start to achieving better health.  By taking it a step further and investing in my three month program you can start to develop new solutions to habits that are holding you back. It’s interesting how one challenge can not only effect your weight, but how you perform at your job!

3. Do a short healthy detox. January 5th is a good day to start a five-day “Kick Start Detox.” You will feel and look like a million bucks and this will spur you on begin your 2015 program.

We are starting a group that meets once a week on the phone and once a month in person. Email me if you are interested. Spots are filling up fast! Research shows that making changes in a supportive group setting will help you be more successful.

4. Make a game plan today for how you will improve your health this year. The Shaklee 180 health programs make it easy to reach your goals. Some of the benefits are:

  • It’s very convenient
  • As you make changes you learn new habits
  • It is balanced, healthy and preserves lean muscle
  • It costs the same as eating out for lunch
  • It is on special until December 31st
  • You will see results sooner – because you’ll be losing fat, not muscle.

Here is an amazing story from the Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition. Jacqui Mccoy lost 207 pound on this TV show in one year. She was driven by the desire to have a baby, but was not able to at her weight. Her success was shown on an hour Friday night special. When the year was over and she started training others to do the same food and exercise program, she was shocked when she started to gain back the weight and her hormones were a mess. Jacqui was convinced by her mothers weight loss to try the Shaklee 180 program. She lost the new 80 pounds with ease and the best testament to how healthy a program it is, is that last September she finally achieved her dream of a baby!

Here is the special:

Shaklee 180 Kits

Starting January – March 2015 There will be 4,000 of us losing at least 10 pounds for a 40,000 pound challenge Jacqui McCoy gave us!

What is your dream for better health in the New Year? I would love to help you identify your vision, and clarify and set your goals. With my help you can develop your supportive voice as well as corrective strategies along the way and achieve your goals!

Don’t ever let anyone talk you out of your dreams, just because they have given up on theirs.

So, its 20 degrees here in NYC. It is freezing!  Here are some quick tips to stay healthy, warm and on-track!

WinterDepression

1. Warm up your Smoothee

Add one scoop Shaklee 180 Café Latte and one scoop Shaklee 180 Chocolate to eight ounces of warmed up almond, soy or regular milk – yummy!

Here are some other recipes

What does a Shaklee 180 Smoothee have to do with your immune system?  30% of women do not get enough protein, and that can seriously affect your immune system. Additionally, the smoothee helps you retain lean muscle mass.  More muscle burns fuel and warms up the body on chilly days!

2. Invest time in your food prep once a week

Make one new soup or entree a week. Freeze the rest. At the end of the month. You’ll have four new favorite dishes! It is important to invest time and thought in your nutrition. It is also fun! Here is a quick and easy Sweet Potato and Sausage Soup to warm you up (hint: you can use chicken or turkey sausage).

3. Take an immune booster

Try Nutriferon. Your body has to work harder to keep your immune system strong in the cold weather! And if you feel a cold coming on, Defend and Resist will help you knock it out.

4. Use supplements to fire up the body

B-complex – The energy will get you and your body moving.

Corenergy – Supports the Adrenal glands to help you fight your challenges for the new day (the Adrenal Gland is the fight or flight gland).

Energy Chews – Convenient chewy supplement with green tea to spark energy in your body!

With the busy holiday season approaching and the temperatures dropping, it’s important to stay warm, healthy and happy! Use these tips to help you power through and still look and feel amazing.

Do you want to improve cognitive performance? Shaklee’s exclusive new formula called Mind Works is clinically proven to do just that in healthy adults. Shaklee selected a special guarana extract that enhances memory, sharpens focus and improves reaction time. Who can’t use that?

Check out this fascinating video about your brain:

Did You Know?
1. Your brain consists of 100 billion neurons. There are anywhere from 1,000 to 10,000 synapses for each neuron. These synapses are what give us memory, reaction time and focus! This only happens through synapses. It reminds me of the old phone system where to connect your call, they had to plug into the switchboard! lily.tomlin.switchboard.operator

2. Age-related mental decline can start as early as age 20, when our brains begin to shrink. We are not losing brain cells but we’re starting to lose connections between the brain cells. This decline accelerates with age, so that by age 60 our brains are slower and learning new things becomes more difficult.

3. But check this out: according to Dr. Laurel Fisher, PH.D., an MIT trained neuroscientist, those neural connections are dynamic and lifestyle choices make a huge difference. This includes the right nutrients, and regular physical and mental exercise.

4. Consider this: There are 100,000 miles of blood vessels in the brain with the equivalent of three full soda cans of blood flowing through them every minute. Supporting the circulation of blood in the brain will help preserve synapses between neurons.

As you can see, circulation is extremely important! You don’t have to accept the fact that with age comes significant mental decline. With Mind Works, you’re increasing circulation and keeping the switchboard running smoothly!
