Happy New Year!!

By January 1, 2017 Fit Living

Happy New Year everyone! Hope you are all having a great start to the new year so far.

I am planning for a wonderful year.

What kind of determination are you starting off with this year?

You can NOT kinda-sorta want to change because you’ll only get kinda-sorta results.

You have to want this so deep-down in your soul that no one and nothing could stand in the way of you meeting your goals. You need fright-train determination. The kind that barrels down the tracks and completely obliterates every obstacle that is put in its way.

Maybe you have tried dieting, supplementing, wrapping, shaking, and pill popping in the past and didn’t see or feel any change. Maybe it’s time to detox your body and get it balanced at the CORE instead, so that it can metabolize fat and build muscle properly.

I’m ready. This is my year… and I’m inviting you on the journey with me. You’ll be provided a support group, delicious healthy recipes, nutrition advice, exercise tips from Certified Fitness Experts and have a chance to win some Unbelievable prizes!

Is this your year??

You ready to link arms with me and a tribe of go-getters?

Let’s do this!

Message me and tell me “THIS IS MY YEAR”!!

  • Bend both of your knees at the same time.

Gut Health and Sleep / How Are They Related

By May 20, 2016 Fit Living
Gut Health and Sleep / How Are They Related

Are you a healthy person?

You may be very healthy looking. You might workout like a rock star, eat healthy all the time, never drink soft drinks or consume sugar, and watch the amount of toxins you have in your house. But, if you are not getting enough restful sleep at night then you are truly not healthy. A few hours a night is not helping you be healthy. You may think you are getting by just fine but you really are barely getting by.

Some of us can fall asleep just fine but then wake numerous times per night. Some of us lay awake for hours wondering when we will ever fall asleep. Did you know that 50-70 million American adults have a sleep wakefulness disorder according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

There is a major connection between gut health and sleep.

In Shawn Stevenson’s book Sleep Smarter, he says that improving your gut health is the key. He is not only a writer but also a nutritionist and has “Model Health Show” podcast.

Your brain produces melatonin which is a regulator for your sleep wake cycle. Did you know that it is also in your digestive tract?

Microbiome the bacteria in your gut is responsible for your sleep related hormones.

It can take time to better your gut health and for it to positively affect your sleep.

Things To Do

Magnesium is one of the top things to help regulate the 300 biochemical processes in the human body. Studies have shown that getting enough Magnesium can improve sleep.

Dark leafy greens, seeds, and nuts are great sources for magnesium. There are also topical applications as well.

If you are looking for a supplement to increase your magnesium then I highly suggest Plexus Slim products.   http://www.stacycurtis.myplexusproducts.com

Things To Avoid

There are many things that can damage your microbiome. The use of antibiotics to often can be damaging.  You should avoid processed foods, additives to food, and agricultural chemicals.

Probiotics for Sleep

We have all heard of probiotics. Most doctors suggest that everyone is on a probiotic. They help to regulate good and bad bacteria in your gut.

There are foods that are rich in live bacteria as well. Kimchi, yogurt,and miso are just a few.

There are also prebiotic rich foods that help nourish the healthy bacteria that live in your gut.

Plexus Slim has a great probiotic called probio5.  You can purchase probio5 here.

Helpful Tips

Drink plenty of water.

Take your probiotic daily.

Turn off all devices 1 hour before bedtime and read, talk, or enjoy time with your spouse. ;).

Have it dark in your room.

So try these things and see if you start getting more restful sleep.

Health starts on the inside. 🙂

Top 20 Benefits of Magnesium

By May 4, 2016 Fit Living
20 Benefits of Magnesium

Do you know the benefits of Magnesium?

How do you know if you are deficient in magnesium?

Some experts claim that magnesium deficiency is the single largest health problem in our world today.

Magnesium is responsible for over 300 biochemical reactions in the body and impacts blood pressure, metabolism, immune function and many other aspects of health.

Signs of Magnesium Deficiency

1- Anxiety and depression. There is a lot of research showing that magnesium deficiency can have a tremendous impact on mental health.

2- Hormone problems.  The higher your estrogen or progesterone levels are the lower your magnesium is (happens during pregnancy). This can cause leg cramps and PMS symptoms when those levels are higher.  Since chocolate has magnesium some say that you crave chocolate because you are deficient in magnesium. Who has craved chocolate before??? Me lol..

3- Calcified Arteries. Calcification of arteries from low magnesium levels can lead to coronary problems such as heart attacks and heart disease. Half of all heart attack patients receive injections of magnesium chloride to help stop the blood clotting and the calcification process. Humm makes sense huh..

4- Sleep problems. Sleep is drastically affected by magnesium. Magnesium helps relax the body and mind which allows for a more restful sleep. Who doesn’t want a more restful sleep right?

5- Bone Health. Calcium is almost always said to be the most important mineral for bone health but it turns out that magnesium is very important also. Vitamin D absorption if affected as well as proper calcium use.

6- Low energy. ATP or adenosine triphosphate is the main source of energy in the cells and it must bind to a magnesium ion in order to be active. Knowing this, without magnesium you will not have energy on a cellular level. This leaves you very fatigued, lack of drive, and very low energy. Low energy is the reason I started taking plexus products. Yep 5 kids will do that to you!

7- High blood pressure. A Harvard study of over 70,000 people found that those with the highest magnesium intake had the healthiest blood pressure numbers.  Adequate intake of magnesium has been found to help lower blood pressure and help with reduction of medications.

 Benefits of Magnesium

1- Boost your immune system. Magnesium helps feed, nourish, and boost the immune system. The immune system is a big part of your health and to stay healthy and fight off sickness you want your immune system to be up.

2- Muscle and nerve function. Magnesium helps the body absorb calcium more efficiently. This helps with calming muscles when they are sore and when they are being used.

3- Osteoporosis prevention. Since magnesium helps absorption of calcium it is important to have enough magnesium so you can absorb enough calcium for your bones, otherwise bones, muscles, and your health seem to diminish.

4- Toxin prevention. Your body fights against toxins all day everyday. These toxins also known as free radicals roam free in your body and can cause damage. Antioxidants help prevent the toxins from hurting your body and cells. Magnesium is a great antioxidant to take.

5- Diabetes management. Those with low magnesium may be more at risk for developing type II diabetes. Adequate magnesium can help metabolize carbohydrates after meals and keep sugar levels in check. It has been suggested to take 100 milligrams of magnesium daily to decrease diabetes risks by 15%.

6-Better sleep. Insomnia is affecting many in our country today. It can affect your overall health and well being. Magnesium has been proved in many studies to help with sleep including the amount of time spent sleeping, how fast a person falls asleep, and how we wake up in the mornings. Magnesium may help you avoid medications for sleep problems.

7- Cancer risk lowered. Magnesium could help reduce your risk of cancer by 13% if taken regularly.

8- Strength of teeth. Teeth like bones benefit from magnesium. It can even help to eliminate high levels of phosphoric acid from harming your enamel and your teeth.

9-  Less Constipation. Magnesium can help to cleanse the body and rid it of toxins in the intestinal tract. Constipation isn’t as likely with adequate magnesium.

10- Muscle cramp prevention. Those lower leg cramps that hit in the middle of the night are no fun and magnesium soothes the muscles and prevents cramps from starting.

11-Gut bacteria and germs. There is good and bad bacteria in your gut. Without the good bacteria we would get really sick because the bad bacteria would take over. Magnesium helps to regulate the gut and helps to absorb other minerals like potassium and zinc. It also regulates blood sugar levels .

12- Inflammation control. Inflammation can cause many things like high blood sugar, blood pressure, heart disease, and cancer. Low magnesium levels tend to be seen in individuals with these problems and those with more inflammation.

13- Blood pressure. Heart disease and vascular problems are caused by high blood pressure. Evidence has shown that those that eat foods rich in magnesium are having lower blood pressures.

14- Energy levels. Your tired and sluggish body could be caused from things like sleep problems, activities, your mental stress, and the toxins that are in your body. Magnesium helps to filter the toxins and help you with your energy levels all day long.

15- Headaches. Headaches and migraines are no fun. Lower magnesium levels have been detected in those that have frequent headaches. Studies have shown that migraine frequency can be cut by 41% with the use of magnesium.

16- Anxiety and depression. Stress, depression, and anxiety have all been improved through having enough magnesium in your body.

17- Flexibility. Magnesium helps with the elasticity of your muscle fibers allowing you to be more flexible.

18- Body pH balance. Magnesium helps to neutralize your body’s acid or alkalinity to give it a  more pH balanced state. Foods and drinks make us more acidic and magnesium helps to neutralize it. If you are acidic or alkaline then you produce lactic acid during exercise causing your body to feel tired and fatigued. Being acidic is unhealthy for your body.

19- Asthma prevention. Since magnesium helps to relax muscles it also helps with the bronchial tubes and therefore reduces asthma attacks and spasms.

20- Heart attack. Magnesium use can already help reduce inflammation and lower blood pressure, but one of the best benefits from its use is to prevent a heart attack. Through the protection from irregular heartbeats, magnesium, can shield and protect your heart from damage and stress. With heart disease affecting millions of adults in the world, magnesium supplementation can help prevent fatal conditions from getting to us.

How to increase your Magnesium

There are many ways to increase your magnesium from foods and different things but the easiest way I have found is through the Plexus product Bio Cleanse.

Bio Cleanse helps to cleanse, energize, support weight loss, and relieve occasional constipation.

In jut 2 capsules of Bio Cleanse you will receive 380 mg of magnesium! Yes that is great!

So my recommendation for how to get the best source of magnesium is through Plexus Bio Cleanse.
Simple, Easy, and Good.

Here is the website for Bio Cleanse.

Hope this has helped you understand the top 20 benefits of magnesium along with the signs of deficiency.

Exercise Is A Form Of Worship: Devotional

By April 13, 2016 Encouragement, Fit Living

Have you ever considered exercise to be a form of worship?

If you think of how you are worshiping the Lord while you are working out it will bless you in more ways than one.

Do you dread exercise?  It is not as natural for some people as it is for others. But if you change the way you look at exercise then you can change you attitude, mindset, and the entire outlook of working out.

Exercise is not all about getting fit, getting sweaty, your body, or even getting out your aggression and letting go of stress. The Lord desires to be the focus of everything in your life and that means all areas of your life. You can worship the Lord in everything you do if you allow the Lord to be a part of it.

 

 

The verse Romans 12:2 really speaks to me.

“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect “

 

I remind myself that my body is a gift from the Lord. It is a gift that I am able to move the way I can. It is a gift that I have functioning arms, legs, hands, and feet. I enjoy the fact that I can breath a deep breath of air and not feel pain or worry about pollutants like in some places around the world.

The body that God created is amazing. Every detail is so specific and he made it all work together perfectly.

When I workout I love to listen to praise music. I like to sing and praise the Lord. I like to think about how blessed I am. I find it very uplifting and it can change your mood and ease your mind if you are in a tough spot in life. I use this time to pray and talk to the Lord. If you do not have a workout partner then think again. God is your workout partner. He is there cheering you on to run that extra step or to the next mailbox (lol my husband does this for me when we run together) and God is doing it in every step you take. I take this time to also listen. I listen for what the Lord may be trying to tell me. If we are to busy talking and thinking then we may miss out on what the Lord is trying to tell us.  I tend to leave my workouts feeling better in so many ways. I am filled with the spirit, healthier, and renewed.

Let the Lord guide you in the exercise that is right for your body. Not everyone is meant to run a marathon just like not everyone is meant to do yoga. We each have to do what is right for us. If He leads us then it will be the right exercise for us! Trust in the Lord to help, support, and guide you each day.

12 Quick Healthy Breakfast Ideas To Help You Lose Weight

Are you looking for healthy breakfast ideas? Are you a busy mom and need ideas that are fast and easy?

Well today we will be going over breakfast ideas that will help with your weight loss goals.

12 Quick Healthy Breakfast Ideas To Help You Lose Weight

Ok, so do you know what you should be eating as far as protein, fiber, and healthy fats?

Breakfast is very important. Your entire day can depend on the way you start it. If you start by putting bad stuff in your body then you will crave those things all day long.

To get the fuel you need for the day to prevent you from binge eating later in the day you need to start off with a combo of nutrients. You should be aiming for roughly 5-10 grams of fiber from a carbohydrate, 14-20 grams of protein, and around 7-13 grams of a healthy fat.

If you get the right mix of nutrients then you can have more energy for the day and this can help so much with focus, mental clarity, and will power.

Why do you need all of these different nutrients you ask?

The fiber helps absorb water to keep you fuller longer. This will prevent you from being starving by lunchtime. Fiber can also help with digestion and keep you from feeling bloated.

Protein and healthy fats will help slow down the digestion of fiber, sugar, and carbs. This helps level out blood sugar levels which prevents crashes.

Breakfast should be between 300-350 calories.

Try a few of these suggestions for healthier breakfast ideas.

Breakfast Ideas

1- 1 slice of whole grain toast topped with nut butter, banana, and chia seeds

2-1 medium apple, top it with 2 Tbsp of almond butter or peanut butter. If you have protein powder try sprinkling it on top.

6-Smoothie 1/2 cup berries, 6 oz nonfat Greek yogurt, 1 Tbsp chia seeds, and 1 Tbsp almond butter

7- peanut butter and banana smoothie- mix bananas, peanut butter, soy milk, greek yogurt, honey and a few ice cubes in a blender

8- overnight oats- combine oats, chia seeds, fruit of choice, vanilla, milk and yogurt in a sealed container the night before. heat in the microwave for 1-2 minutes

9- peanut butter banana oat breakfast cookies- 2 ripe bananas, 1/3 cup peanut butter, 2/3 cup unsweetened applesauce, 1 scoop protein powder( optional), 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1 1/2 cups oatmeal uncooked, 1/4 cup nuts (optional), 1/4 cup chocolate chips (optional), bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

Workout While Playing With The Kids Outside

By April 9, 2016 Fit Living

Do you not have time to workout?

Do you wish you could workout while playing with your kids outside?

You can!

It can be done.

You think well I don’t have a mat or an area to workout outside. I need to lay down to do ab exercises or get on the floor to do my leg workout. No you don’t.

Do you think you have to have on workout clothes? You don’t! I have worked out in jeans many times.

The thing is make the most out of every moment. You can do lunges in any clothes and in any location. Have you tried doing lunges every time you go to the restroom? I do! When you go to the restroom do 20 lunges or squats while drying your hands. Do a wall sit for 30 seconds each time you go.

No excuses! Just Do It!

Check out my workout video showing you a few moves to do outside while your kids are playing here.

You can use your car to lean on or even a wall. Don’t pass up kids toys also. They can be great tools for working out.

How To Get In Enough Water Daily?

By March 30, 2016 Fit Living
How to get in enough water daily!

FullSizeRender (38)

Have you ever wondered why you can’t get in enough water daily?

Do you struggle to get in a few cups of water, much less your specific amount?

We discussed how much water you need per day in a previous blog post so now we are going to discuss how to get that specific amount of water in each day.

Well, the way I do it is I challenge myself to drink 1 gallon everyday. Yes! 1 Gallon daily!

If you start out your day with a gallon jug and your goal is to drink the entire thing then you will most likely drink a big part of it. Maybe not all of it but you should get in the amount you should be drinking per day.

 

How to get in enough water daily!

How to get in enough water daily!

Tips and Tricks

*Get started early! First thing in the morning try to get 2 cups of water in. Have a bottle of water in your bathroom and while you are getting ready try to drink the bottle of water before you eat or do anything else. Ok, you may want to brush your teeth 🙂 first.

*Always have a bottle of water with you. Wether you are at the computer or working out have a bottle of water. The easiest time for me to drink my water is when I am driving. I always grab a bottle of water when I am heading out the door and I try to make sure it is empty before I get back home. Taking the kids to school, picking the kids up, on the way to church, or on the way to the gym or park. All those bottles of water add up.

*Some do better breaking it up into smaller amounts. Place 8 bottles of water in the fridge or cooler if you are out of the house during the day. You can label the bottles and know how much closer you are to having your gallon in each time you get a new bottle. You can also place a gallon of water in the fridge or on the counter and refill your bottle 8 times during the day. As you see the gallon getting empty you will feel great about yourself. You can also mark your bottle each time you empty it.

*If you struggle with the taste of water try adding fruit to your bottle. A little flavor can help a lot!

*You may find that the more water you drink the more you will crave it and the more you can drink at a time.

*Just because you feel hungry doesn’t mean you need food. Often when you are hungry it is your body telling you that you need water.

*If you are thirsty then you are most likely getting dehydrated. You should be drinking water before you get thirsty.

*Make it a game. Set a goal and reward yourself when you reach the goal.

*Set a timer on your phone. When the timer goes off and says to drink a glass or bottle of water you will most likely do it.

How to get in enough water daily!

How to get in enough water daily!

How to Get In Your Water

Try making it a part of your routine. Wake up and drink a glass of water. If you are a coffee drinker then don’t allow yourself to have your coffee until you have had your entire bottle of water. Drink a bottle with breakfast. Drink a bottle on the way to work, gym, park, or to drop kids off at school. Drink a bottle with lunch. Drink a bottle with dinner. Drink a bottle while getting the kids from school or on your way home from work. Drink a bottle while watching your tv show, taking a shower, or before bed. If you do these things then you should be able to get in your specific amount of water each day.

I think marking your bottle works best. I have done it where I get a good water bottle and mark on it with times. You can set times that you want to drink your water. 9:00, 11:00, 1:00, 3:00 and so on. Whatever works for your schedule but make the times and stick to them. Even if you have to chug water a few times a day to stay on track. Goals work wonders with getting you to drink your water.

I also like getting a gallon jug and marking it. I will mark each cup as a line and number them. You will know what time it is and where you should be. It is best to drink the water consistently all day to keep hydrated best.

I think these tips will help you meet your goal of drinking your specific amount of water each day.

My goal is to drink a gallon per day! Can you drink 1 gallon of water per day?

How do you get in enough water daily?

I have also found that the Plexus Slim helps me crave water. I did not like water before I started with Plexus but now I crave water and I know how important it is for my body.

If you would like to order Plexus Sim go here.
