The Woman or Man in the Mirror
If you are connecting with me and us for the first time with FIT Life Creation, I have tried countless solutions (like many of us to getting healthy and happy). What finally worked was when I
a) Got real with myself
b) Set up solutions and simplicity
The picture on the left was 2008 at age 30 - during my first executive role in Corporate in an Oil + Gas Company. I was not practicing healthy habits fully. Yes, I did athletic events and worked out fairly regularly. However, my food and alcohol intake was nowhere near stable.
The picture on the right was 2014 at age 36 - my first fitness show. (I've now done three going on my fourth). Here my health habits were completely healthy (and continue to be). I had not consumed alcohol at this point for 7+ months. I had eaten very healthy with all nutrients in alignment with protein, complex carbs, and healthy fats. I set myself up for success in every way with #1 Global Nutrition - Herbalife, Meal Bags, and meal prep. I even traveled at least a week each month during this time and continued to stay at 100% with food + workouts.
Since 2014, I have continued to transform myself from the inside out including a come back form a broken foot surfing in 2016 among other life challenges.
Disclaimer: average consumer who uses Herbalife loses .5 to 1 lb a week. The 55 lbs I lost took a year and a half. Herbalife Nutrition has weight loss products and supplements, athletic line, skin care and hair care, and kids nutrition. They are in >95 countries, for over 35+ years, with nobel laureate on the board, and sponsor top athletes like Cristiano Renaldo.
Let's talk about the steps to ultimate transformation in health, wealth, and business. I will share what I did step by step to help you. I will ask questions about habits to help you face the woman or man in the mirror.
#1 Alcohol Intake
Do you currently consume alcohol >3 times a week (input # of drinks you have each time)?
This is not only misaligned to the goal of getting healthier, it is hurting your wallet too. At an average of $10 a pop multiple that by the # of drinks you have weekly. That debt you want to pay off - yes going down your throat. That vacation you can't seem to go on - in the alcohol or the eating out likely.
In 2010, I drank 2-4 times a month and 2-3 drinks each time. In 2011, I trained for two half marathons and completed them. As a result, I drank maybe 1-2 times a month. In 2012, this continued to decrease to perhaps red wine once a month usually. In 2013, it stayed at typically 1-2 times a month until the end of the year.
When my best friend Janelle got sick with cancer and passed away, it shifted everything. I ran a triathlon in her honor in DC. I took a good honest look at my health and entire life. I decided to start training for my first fitness show in July of 2014. I cut out alcohol entirely for over a year. I had two classes of red wine in 2014 when my friend Angela came to visit. The next morning, I felt like a truck ran over me. I decided then and there no more.
I decided with what I stood for and wanted to stand for - as an example of transformation - that alcohol was completely out of alignment. It was not only not good for my health or wealth, it also didn't line up with the integrity of my helping others transform. It was the last drink I took. That choice was 5 years ago this fall.
#2 Coffee Dependency
Do you currently drink coffee >3 times a week with dairy? Do you feel like you "need it"?
Ladies and gentleman - any form of low energy or cravings indicates you are or we are nutrient deficient in protein, complex carbs, healthy fats and/or simply not eating enough.
For example, if you occasionally drink coffee because you love the taste - okay great! I love my Herbalife Protein coffee!!! However, if you go to Starbucks twice a day to get a "fix", it's a whole different story. You know what it is with you.
#3 Sweet or Salty Cravings
Do you have sweets or salty treats >3 times a week? Do you crave either or both?
Your body is giving you signals. Ask yourself if you are eating protein every meal, complex carbs 1-2 times a day, and healthy fats at least a few times a week. Are you eating regularly e.g. every 3 hours?
If not, these are cravings that are signaling you that your body is "out of balance". I have not had any cravings for over 5 years at all. I gave up sweets over 3 years ago. I used to love Tiramisu but when I. had it 3 years ago after not having it for a year, it was overwhelmingly sweet for me.
Our taste buds like anything else may change. I realized with how healthy I now choose to eat, foods I used to resonate with no longer align in any way.
Now, I regularly treat myself with smoothie bites and bowls!
#4 Eating Consistently
Do you eat every 3 hours? Do you consume protein in every meal?
We talked about habits you may want to decrease. Now, let's talk about habits you want to increase. To help your brain adjust to change, it helps to change and replace habits.
As a result, as you eat less sweets, you want to focus on meal prep to help you eat consistently. Make sense? When, I first started I added two Herbalife shakes a day and a Beverage mix snack. In the first month, I lost 15 lbs. Clearly before I was not eating enough.
Our bodies will often hold on to weight because it feels like we are starving it. (I am certified in Fitness + Sports Nutrition as well). I thought about becoming a Registered Dietician (RD). I love to learn! I got accepted into University of Alabama's program in 2015 and completed a semester with A's.
However, I realized I am happy with a certification and didn't have a want or need to go to school for 6+ more years in formal education + an internship. I love the education I've gotten in undergrad, grad school, certifications. I constantly immerse myself in events and entrepreneurship.
I am huge on speaking things into existence (Prov 18:21) and repeatedly say if I need an RD for a situation or client, one will align.
Back to eating! When, I first started eating consistently I took it up a notch and started doing meal prep officially on Sundays. This helped set myself up for success. I got a meal bag to carry my meals with me (we include this in our retreats + academies!)
Now, for the most part I keep certain staples in my home to set myself up for success like Herbalife Nutrition, egg whites, oatmeal, black beans, peanut butter, and sandwich thins. I consistently use my meal bags still!

#5 Hydration Hydration
Do you drink >8 glasses of water? Do you carry a water bottle with you?
Most people are walking around severely dehydrated. If you are and you add alcohol and/or coffee, this is adding to the situation. Often times people may think they are hungry or craving something, when all you need is water!
You will feel mentally clearer as well to tackle your health, wealth, and business opportunities for growth with great health!
Think about ways to add more water daily. How about carrying a water bottle? How about making water with fruit at home? These are some of the things I do!
#6 Made to Move
How often do you move weekly? Literally. How often do you lift or do cardio? Or take a walk? Or dance or do yoga?
Our bodies are made to move! Since 2014 - 2016 (when I broke my foot), I consistently worked out 4-6 times a week. When my foot healed, I got to rebuild those habits step by step. First, focusing on lifting, then cardio, then additional experiences.
I currently workout 5-7 times a week. I lift 6 days a week. I currently do high intensity internal training in between sets.
This consists of:
Jumping jacks 1 min
Plank 1 min
Squats 1 min
Abs 1 min
Push ups 30+
I add in stair step, high incline walk or a run 3-5 times a week.
For variety, I integrate dance, yoga, or boxing at least 2-4 times a month as well.
The key is to move! When we exercise we release endorphins and it helps us refresh our perspective and release stress! I am and you are made to move!
#7 Time + Money Management
How do you spend your time and money? When is the last time you checked?
Do you give 10%? Do you save 10%? Do you invest 10%?
These are all huge indicator on our gratitude, attitude, and future.
For example, do you want to be financially free?
How are you faithful with the time and money you have?
#8 Passion + Purpose
Do you create and do what you love at least 50% of the time?
Are you willing to put in more effort with what you love?
How could you change either or both of these?
Whether you believe you can or you can't, you are right.
It's all mindset and what you say internally and externally about your life.
The choice is yours. The consequence is yours. The result is yours.

#9 Action > Words
Do you take action daily, weekly, monthly towards what you say you want?
In some cases, results may show up right away. In others, it may take time for the seed to grow.
Have faith and keep learning and growing.
Do you praise those that help you? Do you have an attitude of gratitude?
#10 Be + Do Your Best
Do you get better daily, weekly, monthly? Are you progressing in every area of life?
There is no perfection. There is progress. Assess daily how you are being and doing
spiritually, mentally, emotionally, relationally, playfully, physically, and financially.
Are you making progress? Did you look back on last week or last year or five years ago?
