Hello!! Well, most of you have seen my long journey over the past two years with divorce and job loss. I was THANKFUL that I always had my blog to earn extra income and keep me afloat. Many people ask me…how do I make money from a blog? Well, I have many ways…from affiliate marking, reviews, advertising on my blog and several other little secrets to earn money.

If you are a parent trying to make it…it is so confusing on where to invest money if you want to market online. I have learned over the years that there are scams and there are legit ways..but you need to work at it. Money doesn’t grow on trees.

One I do very well with only cost me $39.95 a month to have access to a website and videos that do the selling for me! You too can do this…it is more of a sharing tool…if you are on facebook you can make money from this as long as you refer people..NOT LIKE HAVING A PARTY or bugging friends. This is a shared and if you can talk 3 great networkers into spending $39.95 with your opportunity and you all build a team of friends…say fifty ….you will make moolah. You have to share the video. How easy is that…..I bring in a lot in residula income from this alone and anyone can do it. I have many friends that sell products and host parties. I don’t want to stock inventory, or host parties…I want to find people who share my dreams of paying for college for my kids and not worrying if I can pay all the bills. So one of my secrets is to watch this video and see if you catch the concept. Crap, its giving up on nice dinner to cover the cost to join. NO BIGGIE! LOL Over the next month I will share more ways to earn money online without leaving your home! Let me know how you earn money!!!!! This is not a scam..it is really financial sharing with perks. More tips coming soon!!!

ONE WAY I EARN INCOME~~ MORE WAYS TO COME!

JUICING FOR A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE

DETOX JUICING!

ALPHA RESET 5 – DAY JUICE FAST

By now, you already understand how important what you put into your body is to your health, vitality and fat loss.

The foods you eat are literally the catalyst for the results you experience.

This is a basic fact…

But even if you’re eating the exact right foods in the perfect quantities, none of it matters if you’re not digesting them. The truth is most people are not effectively digesting the foods they eat and consume – and this, more than anything else, is why most people really struggle to change their bodies significantly. They remain stuck… frustrated, burned-out and tired of wasting time not having the delicious, sexy body they’ve always wanted.

The approach we take with our clients is called the “Alpha Step” because it’s the beginning step in any transformation goal, no matter if that’s health, vitality, or fat loss, etc.

It’s the most important aspect to your success. This has changed thousands of people’s lives and if you let it, it is about to do the same for you.

How is my digestion screwing up my results?

After years of consistent, less-than-ideal food intake, your body’s digestive system has become overworked and less efficient, which eventually leads to metabolic problems, hormonal imbalances, and potential disease.

Let me break it down a little more for you. This is how it all works…

Due to the buildup of mucus and dysfunctional digestion, full breakdown and assimilation of foods becomes nearly impossible after a while…

… Which means your body is unable to extract the essential nutrients from even the highest quality foods, which it needs to function normally…

… This makes your ability to change your body and lose fat nearly impossible. Period.

Alpha state… this is where everything just flows. Your body doesn’t have to work hard… it’s now acting like the well-oiled machine it’s supposed to be. You can breeze through your day, feeling energized and full of life.

If changing your body and losing fat doesn’t come easy to you, chances are that you are suffering from poor digestion right now.

The most common symptoms of poor digestion are:

  • Gas, bloating, stomach aches

  • Fatigue, mental fog

  • Changes in bowels (ie diarrhea, constipation, discomfort)

  • Congestion, running nose, mucus in throat or coughing

  • Hives, rashes, etc.

*These symptoms typically occur within 1-3 hours after consuming your meal.

If you’re experiencing anything less than ideal, you are not breaking down the foods you eat. This is not a normal symptom you have to live with!

5 – DAY RESET

Detox Do’s

  • Drink at least 3 Juices (12-36oz each) during the day with tea and water in between.

    • The size of these juices will depend on your hunger level. We recommend beginning with 24oz. If you’re too full, make the next one smaller. If you’re still hungry make your next juice larger.

  • If you feel exceptionally hungry, have another juice; this is not a starvation diet.

  • Drink more water. It’s the best way to flush toxins out of the body. Aim for 80oz or more.

  • Have at least one 8oz glass of water with 1 tsp of apple cider vinegar (ACV). This helps remove mucus and toxins while juicing.

  • “Chew” your juices, slowly, to stimulate enzymes. Digestion begins in the mouth.

  • Avoid consuming too many juices. Less is more, especially when cleansing. Try not to force-feed yourself juices, but don’t consume so little that you are very hungry.

  • Keep it simple. Avoid juicing too many different items in one juice to ease digestion; stick with shorter juice recipes, especially if you are relatively new to juicing. A good rule of thumb is 3-4 ingredients per juice recipe.

  • As much as possible, strive to buy organic veggies. A great strategy is to use the Dirty Dozen and Clean Fifteen as a handy reference when buying your produce. You’ll want to avoid pesticides, herbicides, and other residues as you work to detoxify your body.

  • Move your body for 15-30mins each day. Movement is important while fasting because it helps stimulate the lymph system, which is responsible for processing the toxins you’ll be working to remove from your body. Some great exercise options are always walking, stretching, swimming, yoga, or any other “light” forms you can think of. You’ll sweat out toxins in your perspiration. Also, try to exfoliate and dry-brush your skin to remove toxins through your pores.

  • Meditate. Deep breathing helps cleanse the body.

  • Get plenty of sleep. Your body heals itself as you rest.

  • Reference the troubleshooting supplement section for success

Detox Don’ts

  • Starve yourself. The reason why juicing works so well is because the abundant nutrients from juice allow your body to do the work it needs to in order to effectively detox in the first place.

  • Try P90X. It’s important to allow your body to detox. If you overdo it in the gym, you’ll most likely not be successful in this. Rather than doing high intensity or highly strenuous fitness during this detox, plan instead on light activity for success.

  • Expect instant results. This juice fast protocol is an amazing tool. That being said, while our community uses protocols like this to lose amazing amounts of weight and improve their health, this is only the beginning. It’s a perfect jump start to massive change, but no a magic bullet.

Before You Start

  • Read over the guide

  • Decide which recipes you’ll use and what supplements you’ll need

  • Make a shopping list & go shopping

  • Prepare your veggies ( shown below)

  • Set your intention for your juice fast

Juicing Basics: What to Expect

Normal when juicing…

1. Your bathroom visits change: Increased pee, decreased poop. This is totally ok and normal. Remember, you’re drinking tons of extra water via your juices and drastically decreasing or eliminating your solid foods intake completely. For these reasons, you can anticipate little to no bowel movements. Simply put, you don’t have anything to eliminate, aside from liquid.

Side note regarding juicing beets and your bowel movements: Very commonly, juicing beets results in red stools or orange urine…don’t worry this isn’t an emergency; it’s simply the color from the beets. Keep on Juicin’

2. Your energy levels change: Energy high right after you consume a fresh juice. Energy low between juices and often in the evening.

You might want to sleep ALL the time. This is completely ok. Remember, your body is working overtime to detox and cleanse your system. This, in combination with the lower calorie intake, will make you much more tired.

3. Your cognitive function may change: Mental fogginess throughout the day with occasional AM morning mental focus. This is a great time to get writing or productive.

4. Your temperature regulation may change: Your feet, toes, hands, and fingers may be cold. This is ok! It’s very common when we are in a calorie deficit to experience cold extremities. You’re simply not as good at regulating your body temperature while fasting.

NOT normal when juicing…

1. Diarrhea – change your juicing recipes, decrease magnesium supplementation.

2. Hair loss – change your juicing recipes and consider looking at thyroid friendly recipes.

3. Excessively Dry Skin – change your juicing recipes and consider looking at thyroid friendly recipes. Use coconut oil to moisturize your skin.

4. Nausea – change your juice recipes, and consider consuming smaller juices (ie consuming 12oz/meal rather than 24oz can be easier on your digestion).

Let’s make sure we’ve covered all the bases…

Occasionally, when juice fasting, you may experience some of the following:

  • Low energy, headaches, constipation, irritability, and trouble sleeping.

The good news is that, when done correctly, you can avoid these completely when juice fasting and enjoy burning some serious body fat while improving your health!

How?!

Check out the below troubleshooting tips:

  • Ultra Lethargic/ Tired? Add a tsp of sea salt to each juice or consume 1tsp of Coconut oil (especially if you are experiencing low energy).

  • Excessively Hungry? Consume 10-30g Branched chain amino acids aka BCAAs (healthy building blocks of protein) between juices. Our favorite brand is MRM Reload BCAAs+G watermelon flavor. MRM is Fitlife.tv approved because they use stevia and xylitol rather than other less than ideal artificial sweeteners. Consume 1tsp of Coconut oil (especially pre workout if you are experiencing low energy).

  • Battling Headaches or Can’t Sleep? Supplement with >500mg Magnesium (malate, oxide, citrate, or glycinate) before bed.

  • Constipated? Supplement with >500mg Magnesium (malate, oxide, citrate, or glycinate). Consume 1 tsp of Chia seeds in 8oz water (1x/day) or take psyllium husk (1-3x/day).

OK, so now that you hopefully feel better equipped to handle any unpleasantness, let’s talk about you transforming your health beginning with a juice fasting reset

Vegetable Preparation

  1. Wash veggies.

  2. Cut and/or peel: We recommend peeling anything not organic.

  3. Store individual juice recipe ingredients in containers or bags for easy access the next day.

The Detox: How it works…

For the next 5 days you will actually be eating almost no solid food – and the food you do put in your body is strategically used to clear your digestive tract.

- Drink as much water as possible throughout the day, preferably with a little bit of lemon juice squeezed in (unlimited amounts).

- Drink up to 2 cups of fresh fruit and vegetable juice every three hours (from 10 to 12 cups a day). Ideally, “fresh” entails the following:

1. Straight out of a juicer from real fruits and vegetables, and if that’s not possible…

2. Any juice purchased or otherwise “premade” that says it is from 100% vegetable juice with no other ingredients.

TIP: Look for juices with a short shelf-life! The best pre-made juices should always have an expiration date right on the bottle, showing that the ingredients are ALIVE and won’t last very long on the shelf. Most standard store-bought juices such as apple juice or grape juice are pasteurized (heated to kill bacteria). Pasteurization is great, but not in the case of vegetable juices. Pasteurization effectively destroys most the beneficial enzymes and nutrients you get from FRESH juice. This is one of the primary differences between creating your fresh own juices and those that you buy in the store. One final note, any juice is better than no juice, but it’s important to remember to drink ALIVE, FRESH juice whenever possible and in order to get the results you expect.

- Do not drink the juice unless you feel you need it! Do not force-feed yourself juice.

- Do one of the following to ensure regular bowel movements:

  • Take 1 tbsp of psyllium husk with two cups of water immediately after waking up and immediately before bed. Check the ingredients on many popular fiber supplements and you will find they are made from psyllium. If you are unable to get ANY psyllium at all, and you know this for a fact, then any non-flavored fiber supplement will do.

  • 1-2 TBSP of Chia Seeds in 8oz water daily

  • 500mg Magnesium Malate before bed nightly*

*My personal preferred supplementation method

Days 1-3: Juice and Hydrate

Drink a juice every 3 hours. Each green drink should be between 12-24oz. (Drink green drinks whenever you’re hungry, but don’t force-feed yourself.)

Hydration is critical for fat burning. Drink as much water as possible all day long, preferably with some fresh lemon juice squeezed in (unlimited amounts). Also, sprinkle in some Pink Himalayan Sea Salt to add much needed minerals.

Are you worried about losing too much weight?!

For people with less weight to lose and for those who want to maintain as much lean muscle as possible please follow the below guide:

Add 1 serving of omega-3 rich healthy fat or protein to each of your juices from the sources listed below.

Omega-3 rich healthy fats

1tbsp Olive oil

1-2tbsp Liquid Coconut oil

1-2tbsp Fish/flaxseed oil

1⁄4 Cup Coconut Milk in Can

OR

Quickly assimilated protein

1 scoop protein powder (15-30g protein)

½ cup liquid pasteurized egg whites

Day 4: Reintroduce semi-solid or solid food

At this point you will slowly re-incorporate more complex foods back into your diet. It’s important to do this slowly, strategically, and mindfully.

Your digestion is hypersensitive as you re-introduce solid foods back into your diet. This offers a valuable opportunity to evaluate how the foods you eat are digesting.

Pay close attention to signs of indigestion (listed above) and take note of anything that doesn’t digest well.

We recommend using a food log or minimally writing down what you consume.

*Please note: there are vegetarian and vegan options below

Begin your day with juice. Consume 2-3 juices before introducing more complex foods. In the second half of your day – ie lunch and dinner select one of the below options.

Lunch and dinner options:

Option 1: Green smoothie or shake

1 cup water combined with either almond milk or coconut milk. Blended with greens

(ie spinach, lettuce, etc.) and with protein powder optionally.

Option 2: Egg white omelet with 1-2 veggies

1 cup egg whites (5-6 whites) with simple veggies and sea salt/pepper, cooked in coconut oil.

Option 3: Simple soup with 3-5 ingredients total (super simple)

Broth or vegetable base soup, seasoned with basic spices and herbs.

Go for a 20-30 minute walk, keeping the intensity low.

Day 5: time to listen to your body

Same as day 4, but substitute either lunch or dinner for an additional solid food meal – ie salad with roasted salmon, etc. Keep the protein options simple and consume small portions. Continue to be mindful of how you are digesting foods.

Do 20-30 minutes of low – moderate exercise (example: Walking, Yoga, Swim, ect.)

Day 6 & 7: now you will start to introduce more complex solid foods

BEGIN INTRODUCING A CLEAN DIET OF WHOLE-FOOD-BASED OPTIONS.

for best results and easiest transitioning following the below guidelines:

-Consume smaller meals (50-75% your normal portions)

-Base your food options on 1-ingredient items (whole foods).

-For example – asparagus, tomato, chicken, beef, peppers, etc.

Continue to mindfully re-introduce healthy solid foods back into your diet, it’s common be much more sensitive to food allergies etc.

Go for a 20-30 minute walk, keeping the intensity low

if you want to see continued good results: fitlife.tv recommends continuing juicing minimally 1x/day once you complete the protocol.

 

*VEGAN/VEGETARIAN PROTEIN ALTERNATIVES FOR EGG WHITES

Ground Flaxseed with Water

Combine 1 tablespoon of milled flax seed with 3 tablespoons of water for each egg white you need.

Mix it well and let the mixture sit for 1 to 2 minutes.

Add to the recipe as you would an egg.

You might want to test your recipe first before preparing it for guests to see if it meets your expectations.

Firm Tofu

Scrambled firm tofu makes a delicious alternative to scrambled egg / egg whites.

Protein Powder

Either add protein powder (any form that you digest well) to meals or create a protein shake.

Remember to be kind to your body because it will be doing some serious work during this process.

 About HoneyBaked! (from their site)

The HoneyBaked Ham® Story

One Ham at a Time

It was 1957 when Harry J. Hoenselaar opened the first HoneyBaked Ham Company® store in Detroit, Michigan. He knew he had something special. An idea for developing a unique curing and cooking procedure for the preparation of a one-of-a-kind, high-quality bone-in smoked ham. In addition, Harry had invented the final touch to his unique gourmet ham… the spiral-slicing process. Thus the advent of The Authentic HoneyBaked Ham® . For over 50 years we have maintained our family’s commitment to provide your family with one-of-a-kind special occasion dining experiences. Today, still family-owned and operated, our family experts still make every ham the same way Harry did – one at a time. Harry would be proud to know his family still takes pride in maintaining the same high-quality standards in every product offered by The HoneyBaked Ham Company® . From the HoneyBaked® family guarantee of satisfaction, to the growing line of products that meet our strict quality standards, we remain committed to making your occasion truly special!   We proudly stand behind the consistent quality and wholesomeness of all our products. 100% satisfaction and unprecedented service is our goal and our promise to you.

Snow Day Ice Cream Recipe!

ice cream PAI

 

This is a quick and short post!

We were stuck in the house for several days due to the terrible winter storms here in Michigan.  Polar Vortex….it is sooo fricken cold here! WOW!

Of course despite the cold my kiddos wanted a bowl of ice cream after lunch!

I had one container that was beyond freezer burnt. So we pitched it and decided to make some snow ice cream!

unnamed (4)

 

Searching on Pinterest I wanted to use the recipe with the sweetened condensed milk but of course…none in the cupboard.

So we first made the milk, vanilla and sugar recipe. I think I dumped a little too much vanilla. (kinda tasted like Kahlua) Lol

With the second batch all I took was my coffee creamer and the the kids loved it!!!

un

We used the ITALIAN SWEET CREAM and the SNOW….stirred and stirred. It was YUMMY!

HAPPY KIDS!!! WARNING!!! DO NOT USE YELLOW SNOW!! FRESH CLEAN SNOW ONLY!!! LOL :))
