I want to challenge you to try this with me. Here are a few things you can do that will guarantee that you can do it. I’m not going to try and tell you that you need a diet or anything thing like that. What I will say is if you are consistent that you will see results. If you’re anything like me I want instant results but if you give it 2 weeks you will see results that will make you want to continue so you can be your healthiest.
1, What you must do is have it set in your mind that this is what your willing to do because your mind is half the Battle.
2, Lets start with food first. You have to cut the Carbs period. I know what your thinking but it isn’t so bad. Your meals should consist of meat and veggies and fruits. Trust me it really is pretty easy to get used to and there isn’t a limit to how much you eat. You can have fruit for snack. Be creative and if you need help let me know.
3, Now let’s talk about the move part of this. You have to move, meaning walk fast for 5 minutes take a 15 second break then walk fast for 5 minutes an take a 15 second break. You get it, right? You put your body in fat burning mode. After 2 days of this increase your fast walk to 7 minutes and 2 days later increase to 10 minutes until you reach 15 minutes. After a week of this you will start to feel like you’re in control. The results will make you want to continue. Oh and if it rains go to the nearest mall and get that walk on. Let’s do this together.
Please try this and let me know how you make out. Post some before and after pictures.
Today I’m thankful and grateful for this new day because it is a chance to start all over again and get it right. Yesterday is gone and you can’t change it but today, you get another chance. A do over. Be better than you were yesterday. Be kinder. ♥️

Maybe I’ll get to know my audience better if I knew what you wanted to talk about or what you wanted to see or just anything. We could even do a sort of Q&A or you could just tell me a little about yourself and where your from. How about we start here. What do you think? Should I change my blog? Any ideas? I’ll be wait. Please help me. Thank you.

I could go on and on about the benefits of this powder. It really is a miracle powder. I make tea with the powder and drink one cup daily. However I’ve even drank it at night before bed because it is said to calm you at night and help burn belly fat while sleeping. I’ve been drinking this tea every day for the past 4 1/2 months and here is what I’ve found that’s happened to me. This is a biggie for me. I’m not tired and sluggish around 3pm anymore. I don’t feel like I could use a nap during the day. Lol. I’m more focused and I feel like my mind is clearer. I don’t feel as though I lose my train of thought so easy. My skin seems clearer and my hair is definitely longer since I’ve been drinking this tea. My vision has definitely changed and that’s is a huge claim to make. I want everyone to be a healthy as they can be so with that being said please talk to your doctor. There are only a couple of medications that I know for sure you don’t want to drink this tea without speaking to your doctor first. One is a high blood pressure medicine. Because you don’t want your blood pressure to go to low. Another is diabetic medication because just like blood pressure medicine your blood sugars can drop to low and another is thyroid medicine. As I said please speak with your doctor before drinking this tea if you are on these medications. Mean while I’ll be back with more good healthy lifestyle tips. Below is a link to get you the best brand of Moringa tea and if tea isn’t your thing than take the supplement.
So check it out and let me know what you think. I’m excited to hear from you. Leave me a comment. ❤️

Pomegranate Peel Powder
Get 2 nice size pomegranates and wash them well with a vegetable brush. Then you going to open the pomegranates up and take out all of the pomegranate seeds You can juice them or toss them in a salad or put them in your favorite cereal. The uses of pomegranate seeds are endless. Once you’ve cleaned all the seeds out take the peels and place them on a paper towel and spread them out. Leave them to dry for a few days. Depending where you live will determine how quick they dry out. The peels need to snap when you try to break them. Once they are dried you can put them into your blender or coffee grinder, I have a ninja and I used the single serving glass. It turns into a fine powder. Take that powder put it into a airtight container to keep the moisture out. You can take 1 teaspoon of the peel powder and put it into a loose tea ball holder. Put boiling water into a cup and put the tea ball with the pomegranate peel powder in it right into the water. Let it steep for about 5 minutes you can dunk it a few time but nonetheless let it steep to get the most from the peel powder. After 5 minutes take it out of the water add organic honey to taste and drink. The other way to get peel powder is to buy it already made.

Water fasting is all the rage but it’s nothing new at all. It has been around for many years and it’s dated back to the Bible. Only now people are starting to see the health benefits of water fasting.
It is said that some of the benefits of water fasting is that it helps reduce weight and it clears up your skin, lowers cholesterol and helps with diabetes. It’s like a reset for your body. Let me say for the record that you should never do any long fasting without consulting with you primary care doctor and you should never stop your medication with out getting the okay from your doctor either.
Fasting is good for you. I personally did a 3 day water fast. No food just water. No vitamins just water. NOTHING! The best way that worked for me was I had a high fat breakfast and then started my fast. The reason for this was fat burns slower than sugars or carbohydrates so the high fat breakfast sustained me for most of the first day. Once you get through the first day the hunger pain stop. Remember to drink plenty of water like a gallon a day just so you don’t dehydrate. This is very important. On the second day I felt tired and I had a slight headache but didn’t take anything. I came home from work and wanted nothing more than to sleep until I could eat but that wasn’t the case. I stayed up until 9 pm went to bed and woke up in the morning feeling like I was in a tunnel almost. On my third day I was alert and focused but still feeling weak but I continue to drink water. When my fast was over I was scared to eat because I had read about different ways to break the fast and I wasn’t sure which to do. I started with a cup of tea. Then a couple hours later I had a cup of bone broth. Funny thing is you don’t even want to eat. Try to start eating healthier. Make a few lifestyle changes. You’re worth it.
Some of the things you should do while fasting is relax as much as possible because in the beginning of your fast your body will burn carbohydrates and sugars first and then burn fat to sustain your brain and organs. If you get dizzy or lightheaded you can add salt to your water. While that did not happen to me I’ve read that it could happen and that is what they did. 1/4 of a teaspoon of salt to 16 oz bottle of water should fix it. They say some people had flu like symptoms that came and went but totally cleared up after the fast was over.
Never do a water fast with the intention to just lose weight because unless you change your eating habits the weight won’t stay off. If you try this please leave me a comment and let me know how it worked for you. I’d love to hear what you thought. Many blessings and remember my blog door is always open❤️
What is collagen? It’s a protein that our body needs to support healthy bones,joints,skin, and hair just to mention a few. Collagen is essential for mobility. At around the age of thirty you start losing collagen and your body starts reacting to the loss by skin losing its elasticity for one thing. Your nails become weak or brittle. Your joints start hurting and your hair just doesn’t seem to grow and it starts thinning or breaking off. Those are just a few things that collagen is responsible for. Some other important things are connective tissue that supports your heart and all of your vital organs and tendons and ligaments that are also supported. There are a couple of ways to get collagen that I know of and one is Bone broth. You can make it yourself from the bones of a chicken or beef bones with seasoning and simmer theses bones for about 12 hrs. Let the liquid cool and you drink 1/4-1/2 cup of this broth daily. This is a lot of work but if you want to know what’s in your bone broth then I say make it or you can buy it in the supermarket already prepared. The other option is you can buy the collagen peptide powder and add 1-2 scoops to any hot liquid or cold liquid. You can add it to a smoothie or your hot cereal. Heck you can add it to soups or stews. You don’t even taste it. It’s unflavored. I started taking it because my hip would hurt occasionally at night while I slept and as soon as I started taking it in a matter of 2 days it wasn’t hurting any longer. I was taking it in the morning in my tea but I thought it may be more beneficial to do it in the evening with my tea. My skin looks clearer and my hair doesn’t seem to be falling out as much. Thank God!!! The kind I buy is called Vital Proteins collagen peptides. People I spoke to that had tried others seem to all love this brand. I’ll insert a picture so you can see what it looks like. Check it out. Give me your thoughts. Let me know how it works for you.
Like every thing else I blog about make sure you do your due diligence and check with your health care provider to see if it’s ok to take. I’m only telling you what works for me. Happy reading ~Sharon ~❤️
