Singles, there is hope!

Singles, don’t lose hope!

I know what it feels like to be single for what seems like forever!  I was in my 40’s and truly thought God has forgotten about me.  I had been in so many long-term relationships and so many of them I thought was “the one” !!!   One thing I learned from finally meeting “the one” – you WILL KNOW when you find that person God has picked out for you.

This is a topic I am very passionate about because I was the queen of making excuses for men and “settling.”  As a Christian, your number one priority and one thing you DO NOT COMPROMISE on is that your future mate MUST be a follower of Christ!  I don’t mean that maybe he has gone to church before or maybe willing to go to church with you.  I mean that this man is 100% devoted to the Lord and lives his life for Him.  Believe me, you will know!

The Famous Goo Goo!!

Who has tried the famous Goo Goo Cluster?

I grew up eating these; it’s a Southern “Thang” !!!!

I have been extremely blessed to be able to work for ME and be able to travel more with the love of my life, my hubby, Michael.  He recently had to go to Nashville for business and I jumped all over that.  Nashville is one of my favorite places to go!  We arrived, put on our boots and headed downtown to enjoy all of the amazing live music at many bars; my fave thing to do!

Lo and behold, we parked right next to the Goo Goo Shop!  I was beyond excited!  And it did not disappoint.  Just the smell alone in there is to die for! Of course, maybe you’re asking yourself, what is a fitness coach doing inside a candy bar shop???  Well, I am human after all.  Yes, I enjoy a small treat every once in awhile, I just don’t make it a habit, like it used to be.  Everything in moderation people!!

Did you know… Continue reading “The Famous Goo Goo!!”

Toasted Coconut Latte – Healthified!

Toasted Coconut Latte – Healthified!

Who doesn’t love a yummy latte at the local coffee shop?  But maybe not so much, the calories and sugar.  I am so excited about sharing this powerhouse superfood shake with you for several reasons. These recipes use, what I consider the game changer in my heath and energy, Shakeology. However, Shakeology is not required. You may use any protein power that you choose. That being said, I must admit, there is no way that I would be feeling better in my late 40’s than ever in my life without the power of Shakeology.

    Aside from the 72 nutrients in Shakeology, bananas are loaded with essential nutrition. They are packed vitamins  and minerals such as potassium, calcium, manganese, magnesium, iron, folate, niacin, riboflavin, and B6. These all contribute to the proper functioning healthy body. Plus more! Such as, bananas have properties that contribute to a healthy blood pressure, lower risk of cardiovascular disease, and even aiding in regular digestive system.

And of course, the all important, Coconut. Continue reading “Toasted Coconut Latte – Healthified!”

Where are my Curly GIrls?

Do you love or hate your curls?  How many of you deal with humidity and just can’t get your curls to do “right” ???

GG, her curls and a curly hair product

Let me tell you curlies, I used to HATE my curls, I mean, HATE them!  Once I discovered the “curly girl method”, that will be a whole other blog post, I finally fell in love with my curls!  No more frizz and they look great almost 365 days/year!

I was dreading the daily hair routine while there.  But let me tell you….my hair looked amazing!  I was blown away by how great it looked.  So of course, I decided to make a video (see below)!

I’ve had an Epiphany! This Epiphany happened in Naples, FL

Talk about an EPIPHANY!  And this epiphany involves cookies and God!!  What’s better than that????

As my husband and I were traveling to Naples, Florida, I was hunting down a coffee shop to get some work done.  I am very blessed that I own my business and can literally work from anywhere.  Working in coffee shops is something I love to do and it really helps me focus on my work and nothing else.  I searched online looking for the closest coffee shop.  Normally I just hunt for the closest Starbucks, but I would much rather give my business to a small local coffee shop.

I truly feel this “epiphany” was from God.  Continue reading “I’ve had an Epiphany! This Epiphany happened in Naples, FL”
