This past month has been insane with highs and lows. i have been traveling for pleasure and for work. Guess what happens when i travel… i gain weight and get off of my normal workouts. i’m forced to eat out and many times i overeat because i take comfort in the foods at each restaurant along with a cocktail. i feel like i have fallen hard, but now is the time to get back up and clean my body from all the toxins i have put in it as well as get back into my intense workouts. Summer can be a tough time for many of us…we kill ourselves to look good for the pool or beach and then indulge and gain it all back. i’m on my way back, slowly climbing, but i’m on my way. Join me if you feel like you have fallen from fitness too.

Starbucks tips. . . Order a cafe americano and add a little stevia. Don't look in the glass case of evil goodies, instead grab a cold salad or yogurt or order oatmeal.
Be nice to your body and your digestive system and have a homemade smoothie for breakfast.
Chocolate Lovers: learn to love dark chocolate that is 70% or higher in cacao. I eat it every day to fill my sweet cravings.
