Did you know that, according to the American Diabetes Association, 1.4 million American’s are newly diagnosed with Diabetes every year?
1.4 million NEW cases. Tacked on to a society that is teeming with Diabetics. We are everywhere.
We can’t let this number grow.
We need more research, we need to be more mindful about what we do and do not put in our bodies, we need to make being active a priority, not a once-in-a-while thing, we need to learn how best to manage our stress and emotions, and we need to CARE about our health.
We must be diligent in this management. I know for me, I don’t stay on top of things as well as I should, and I am actively working on changing that because myself and my health are worth that. You and YOUR health are worth that.
You are not alone, and this is not how your chapter ends – if you need an accountabilibuddy, reach out – I’d love to work with you!
Let’s bring that statistic down by a LOT, shall we?
Do what makes you feel good. Achieve your goals, work towards your dreams, live your life… do the things that make you feel alive, inspired, empowered…
Make yourself so proud. Be your biggest fan. Your biggest believer, strongest supporter. Don’t worry about impression anyone else. Make yourself proud of yourself!
Are you proud of yourself?
BOOM. That’s the way to do it!
Do you have a favorite TV series? What is it? What do you love about it?
Looking down won’t help you – look forward, and know that whatever this is, it too shall pass. Actively choose to stay positive, finding the silver lining (it IS there, promise!), and decide that this will neither make you or break you.

Two of my favorite flavors meet today!
Note: you can also use hazelnut iced coffee instead of water and/or hazelnut extract!
What do you think about this one?
Have you heard of this superfood? It’s fun to say, isn’t it? I had never heard of this until I was reading up on the superfoods in my Shakeology!
Apparently, this little red berry is quite the powerhouse superfood!
It’s whole purpose is medicinal use – it’s sweet, sour, salty, bitter and pungent – not a berry you wanna top your Greek yogurt with!
Considered one of the most highly protective medicinal plants, Schisandra is included in many traditional herbal formulas geared towards improving energy and mental health.
I am a member of the “Sour Cream Junkies” club… I LOVE the stuff. I know, not good, or good for me… today’s swap has actually become one of my favorites, because it really does offer the same taste and effect, while offering MORE protein and LESS fat than it’s counterpart of Sour cream.
Note: occasionally, I still enjoy sour cream… it’s become the exception, not the rule, and that’s okay — life IS about balance, after all!
Have you tried this swap?
