Christmas is over...

It's hard to believe that Christmas has come and gone already! I love this time of year so much, it's no fun to think it's already over. We had such a wonderful Christmas eve at my parents home. We enjoyed a delicious dinner and then we all sat down to watch the grandchildren put on a nativity program as my brother-in-law read the scriptures of Christ's birth. It was so sweet. Then we sang Christmas carol's and handed out gifts. I have the most amazing parents ever, I'm grateful we live close to them, they mean the world to me. And then to top it off we had a wonderful Christmas day filled with lots of good times with family and friends. We are so blessed to have all that we have in life.

One of my dear friends sent me this beautiful video of the true meaning of Christmas. It touched my heart deeply.

May the spirit of Christmas last in your heart and homes for months to come. And may all your dreams come true in 2009! I for one believe it will be an abundant & highly prosperous New Year! :)

Merry Christmas (belated) & a Happy New Year!

HOW TO GET A SIX PACK


It's not quite New Years yet and you probably haven't thought about your new years resolution, but now is actually a great time to think about what goals you want to accomplish for the new year.

One of the main questions I'm asked is how to get rock-hard abs. I'm going to share with you my secrets of success. This year you can add having a coveted six pack to your list of resolutions! You can have a tight, sexy middle by following my Six Pack Ab program. By committing to it you will have a killer washboard stomach. It's not easy but it's well worth your time and energy to work towards such a lofty goal.

First you need to look at your family's genes. What is your physique like now? How about your family, what are your parents and siblings figures like? Does your family carry most of their weight in their abdominal area or the bottom half? If you carry your weight mainly around the middle then it will take you a bit longer to see your six pack than those that carry their weight around the lower half. Don't be discouraged, just realize where you gain weight first will be the last place you lose it. It's a bummer for sure, but if you understand how the body burns fat then you'll be better equipped to accomplish your goal of getting a ripped middle.

For starters, you can't pin point a muscle group and develop that certain area. The entire body has to burn and shed fat in order to see the beloved six pack. We all have abdominal muscles, it's just a matter of loosing the padding that's covering them.

To achieve the results you'll need to reduce your caloric intake and be sure to eat small meals throughout the day. Each meal should consist of a lean protein, a complex carb and some good fat every 3 to 4 hours. Have your largest meal at the beginning of the day tapering off to a small meal in the evening. Try to have your last meal between 6 and 7pm. Be sure to drink at least a gallon of purified water to keep your metabolism burning and to remove toxins from your body.

Next you'll need to do cardio at least 5 days a week and weight lifting at least 3 days a week. As you strength train you'll use your core muscle to stable your body which will strengthen your abdominal muscles. Doing core training such as yoga and Pilate's is also an excellent choice for core strengthening.

Doing exercises that focuses on the core muscles is necessary. Here are a list of various exercises to do 3 times a week. Do not train your abs everyday, they need recovering time too just like your other muscles. Do each exercise 3 sets of 25.


Six Pack Ab Routine:

1. Crunches - with your legs up in the air at a 90 degree angle.
2. Twist Crunches - reaching with your elbow across your body to the opposite knee.
3. Three-Up Crunches - do 3 small crunches in a row holding each little crunch as you go up.
4. Bicycles - lay on your back and raise your pelvis up and do bicycles with your legs, 25 forward and 25 backward.
5. V-Ups - lay on your back raise your legs and arms at a 90 degree angel hold for 2 seconds and release back down to beginning position.

You have to commit to following this program for at least 3 to 4 months to see rewarding results. If you really want results fast then be sure to drink Liv Sxinney and Go every day for maximum definition. Having a shredded six pack isn't only attractive but its essential for optimal health.

Do yourself a favor and commit to getting into the best shape of your life this year. Really focus on loving who you are right now, love every aspect of your body. Focus on doing something relaxing and enjoyable every day, take time to pamper yourself. By balancing the body, mind and spirit you'll be more confident, feel healthier, and live a happier life. See yourself fit, thin & happy now. Believe that you can have an awesome six pack and you will! :)

WHY GO IS A SUPERIOR L-ARGININE PRODUCT


What a great weekend! I enjoyed time with my family, visited with my parents and went to church yesterday. And I made a delicious turkey dinner, I had to decide which turkey recipe I wanted to use for Thanksgiving. I actually create my own recipes; my rosemary, thyme & maple syrup recipe was delicious! My family was in heaven! I also took dinner to my parents. My sweet mother recently had double knee replacement, she's doing awesome! She's already walking without her walker and it will be 3 weeks tomorrow! I'm very proud of her, she's such a trooper. She's very health conscious. She drinks Liv Sxinney too which has assisted her in her recovery. And our dear friend, Irene, a cranial sacral therapist came for 3 days straight after her surgery to aid her. She worked miracles. She is truly an angel to our family. I am deeply grateful for her.


HOW TO GET LEAN

I'm often asked and approached while out and about on how to get in shape. I always tell everyone about the power of Go. I've mentioned many times how much I love Zxoom's product, Go. I've had phenomenal results from it. In just over a month's time, I've lost 9 lbs and 7% body fat since using it along with drinking Liv Sxinney throughout the day.

Go is a superior l-arginine product. The l-arginine used for Go is of the highest quality. Jeff Tuttle, the CEO & Formulator for Zxoom searched for years in quest of finding the purest l-arginine for his muscle pumping product. I've tried many l-arginine products over the years and have yet to experience anything like Go. Go is a better quality product above other awesome Nitric Oxide supplements. It offers 5 grams of l-arginine! Most N.O. products only offer 3 grams. If you really want to lose fat and begin seeing a sculpted physique, then you really need to add Go to your list of daily supplements.

HOW DOES GO WORK?

Go's main ingredient is L-arginine, which is a conditionally-essential amino acid. Go also combines a proprietary blend of other amino acids for optimal delivery. L-arginine the best precursor to Nitric Oxide or commonly known as N.O. N.O. is a cellular gas synthesized within the body from a combination of oxygen and an amino acid arinine by Nitric Oxide Syntheses (NOS) enzyme. N.O. signals the muscles surrounding blood vessels to relax or widen, known as vasodilation. Which aids in increase blood flow to the muscle tissues. As the muscles become filled with blood, oxygen and needed nutrition are delivered while waist is removed.

After a hard weight training workout your muscles are fatigued & ready for optimum nutrition delivery. That's where Go comes in. When the muscles are fatigued nutrition is needed. N.O. increases nutrient delivery and removes metabolic waste which causes fatigue. This is often referred to as "The Pump." N.O. is reactive, so you need to mix the Go and drink it within 10 minutes. It's very transient which diffuses freely across the cells. It has to be in powder form for that reason, it can not be mixed with drinks, put into foods, or made in pill form.

HOW & WHEN TO TAKE GO

For optimum results Go needs to be taken on an empty stomach first thing in the morning before your workout. I also recommend taking it with a 500 to 1000 mg of vitamin C for optimal cellular delivery. If you workout in the afternoon don't eat for two hours and take Go prior to going to the gym. Then wait for one hour after taking Go. Take Go again at night two hours after your last meal. Your body recovers mostly at night between 11:00 pm and 2:00 am. It's important to get to bed before 10:30 pm to give your body the essential time it needs for full recovery.

If you're serious about getting a ripped physique then you absolutely need to incorporate Go into your LivFit Lifestyle. For more information please feel free to contact me. I'll be happy to reply the same day. I'm serious about fitness and don't take the necessary means lightly - So I recommend you get Go, get pumped and get ripped!

A LIVFIT SURVIVAL GUIDE FOR THE HOLIDAYS

It's hard to believe that the holidays are already here. I love this time of year! I relish the feelings and excitement of the seasons. I embrace the love and warmth of family coming together. I love hearing Christmas music in the stores and seeing all of the festive decorations. I seriously love it all! The energy in the air is of gratitude and of giving more than any other time of the year. Gratitude and love is the most powerful feelings we can have.

But I don't look forward to over eating or do I want the dreaded fat gains that typically come along with this joyful season. As old man winter sneaks up behind us so does all of the delicious temptations to over indulge. But this year can be different. You can keep your lean physique by following my survival guide for the holidays. You don't have to gain the dreaded 10 lbs as the rest of the world, in fact you don't even have to gain a single pound! It's true! You can keep your lean physique and continue to lose weight by following my survival guide for the holidays.

This time of year most people gain anywhere from 5 to 10 lbs of unwanted fat! They become too busy or overwhelmed with the holidays that they don't prioritise time for exercise. Slowly maybe without even realizing it they begin to self sabotage all of their hard work in just a few short weeks. They soon feel low in energy and then find that their jeans are tighter than they use to be. We've all been there and gained the dread extra weight from all the yummy treats our loving relatives & friends so kindly shared.

PLAN FOR SUCCESS

By planning ahead you won't have to gain any weight at all! In fact you can continue to lose fat and gain muscle by planning a head. By eating clean 90 percent of the time you'll be able to maintain your lean hard body. Be sure to eat your biggest meal of the day the first part of the day and the smallest meal at the end of the day. Here is a great guideline to keep you on a road to success by following a healthy eating plan. Remember if your fail to plan you plan to fail, so be prepared and plan ahead.

LivFit Survivor Diet Plan

Breakfast: Make this the biggest meal of the day consisting of lean protein, complex carb & good fat

Mid-Morning: A whey protein drink mixed with water

Lunch: A large meal of protein, complex carb & veggies

Late Afternoon: A whey protein drink mixed with water

Dinner: A small meal with protein & fibrous veggies.

Be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day with Liv Sxinney. If you have cRave I recommend taking it with your snacks to ensure you won't want to eat more than a protein drink. cRave has 5 grams of fiber in each packet along with inulin which is a fat binder - gotta love that!

MAKE TIME FOR EXERCISE

Lets face it, you will probably eat more calories this time of year than you typically do. So you must counterbalance that with more exercise. Make time to workout during the holiday weeks ahead. Wake up and exercise first thing in the morning after taking Go. If you can workout 5 days a week, great! If you can workout 6 days a week that's fantastic!

You have to make exercise a high priority in your life if you want to make it through the holidays without gaining weight. Do 30 minutes of interval training cardio at least 3 to 4 times a week and weight training at least 3 times a week. Weight training is imperative for sculpting a lean, sexy body that you can be proud of.

This year plan for success, imagine yourself fit and thin and then follow through with a successful diet and exercise plan. Plan your meals in advance. Before any social gathering have some cRave and Liv Sxinney before leaving your home. That way it will be much easier when offered a tantalizing treat to say, "No thank you, I'm not hungry." Say that over and over before leaving your home.

By following these survival guidelines during the holidays you'll be physically and mentally prepared to accomplish your fitness goals throughout this wonderful time of the year!

HOW TO SET GOALS


What a beautiful day! I woke up to the sun's colorful rays coming up over the mountains, it was gorgeous. This time of year is so peaceful. I took the picture of my barn last year about this time of the season. It really is breath taking each time I see the sky light up with the colors of life. I call it Heaven's gift, it's truly magical to see.

Well, I've been one busy girl lately. As you know I recently joined another phenomenal company called iLearningGlobal. I became a member to increase my skill sets to assist me in growing my Liv Sxinney business. I've already increased my closings and income in just a few weeks! I'm tickled pink!

iLearningGlobal is a global university on the internet that offers world famous specialist and self help teachers from around the world. It has been a huge blessing in my life! It's my goal to improve upon my life each new day by increasing my skill sets & emotional intelligence. I really do dream big dreams. I try to learn as often as I can to be able to accomplish my dreams. I'm fortunate to be gifted with this wonderful opportunity to be able to learn from some of the most humble, kind & gifted masters alive today. Each day I study a new topic on iLearningGlobal. Recently I've been listening and focusing my daily lessons on goal setting and public speaking. I've learned a lot in a very short amount of time. Brian Tracy is my favorite specialist. He teaches from his heart. I most enjoy watching his goal stream line HD videos. It has already impacted my life in such a way that I just had to share what I've learned with you.

You should make goals for each area in your life. Every aspect of your life is an outcome of your thoughts. You can look at a person and know what his/her thoughts have been by the quality of life he/she lives. It's truly remarkable how powerful our thoughts and feelings are in creating the life experiences. Living a life without goals is like treading water in the middle of the ocean or trying to drive to a destination without a map in the fog. To succeed you must write down specific goals. And to accomplish your goals you must focus on them each day as though you have already achieved them. And give thanks each time you think of your goals.

Today, take out a piece of paper and write down 10 goals that you would like to come to fruition within the next twelve months. Write them in the present tense followed by an action verb and then conclude with a date of which you would like to achieve the goal. For example you could say for weight loss, "I weigh ___ by Dec. 15, 2008", "I wear a size ___ now (Dec. 10, 2008) or "I am very fit, thin and strong by Nov. 30, 2008" You can either write the date prefacing it by stating "by" or you can write the date in a parenthesis. By focusing on a completion date and focusing on your goal until you accomplish it, you will be in the top two percent of the world that truly succeed. Be sure you hand write your goals so that the subconscious mind can go right to work. By doing so, you will send out energy frequencies into the universe which will put action into place to fulfill your goals. It works for everyone and it works every time. Put a circle around the most important goal and focus and think about it all day every day until the goal is accomplished. Then refocus your attention on your next couple of goals until they are all accomplished.

When you really focus each day on your goals you will begin to have synchronicity come into place. Be sure to keep your heart and mind open to the promptings and opportunities you will receive in accordance to fulfilling your goals, then act upon them. You were born to have abundance in all areas of your life, including health, wealth and happiness. You are on earth to live an abundant, fulfilling & joyful life! So believe in yourself! Create the body and life you've always dreamed of. Write down your goals and place them in a location where you can read them every day. Visualize and feel yourself as though you have already accomplished each goal. By doing so your subconscious will go to work instantaneously in creating your wishes and dreams. It works! I have had many miracles in my life because of my faith in knowing What the man's mind can conceive the mind can achieve. -Napoleon Hill That's why I teach over and over to believe in your dreams, because dreams really do come true!

TIP OF THE DAY....

Be True to Yourself!

Today be completely honest with yourself. Honor your word and respect yourself. If you made the choice not to have any sugary snacks or sodas, then don't! By keeping your promise to yourself you'll become more confident and empowered. How can you love and respect others if you do not fully and unconditionally do the same to yourself?

Treat your body with kindness. Speak lovingly to yourself - literally. If you don't feel great about your body weight say out loud throughout the day, "I love my body." "I am at my perfect body weight." "I feel lighter and healthier each new day." Then fuel your body with wholesome clean foods.

The Fountain of Youth Discovered

This morning we woke up to a winter wonderland or should I say a blizzard! It was sooo cold! I was one cold girl when I had to go out to feed the horses. That's typical Utah weather, last week it was in the high 70's and today's high is 36 degrees. Surprisingly, I welcomed it with a warm heart. I made a hot yummy breakfast for my family and turned on Christmas music. I love music and always have soft music playing all day long. It sets a loving, peaceful tone in our home. And Christmas music is by far my favorite! I love this time of year everyone starts to think of others and seems happier. It's truly is the most wonderful time of the year!

I woke up to another pleasant surprise which I was thrilled about. I got on the scale and my body fat was down another 2.5%!!! And I was down 2 lbs! My body fat is the lowest its ever been. Needless to say, I'm very, very pleased! I told my husband that I discovered the Fountain of Youth! I bet you're wondering what it is... It's a combination of drinking Liv Sxinney all day long, taking Go twice a day (morning and night) and doing P90X 5 times a week. That's it! It's incredibly simple and works miracles. I actually feel & look younger too! Of course I should also add that I eat 5 clean, balanced meals as well. The secret to Go is to take it first thing in the morning on an empty stomach and again at night two hours after your last meal. I typically take it between 8 and 9 pm. I'm seriously so stoked about my newly discovered system! I firmly believe that when you're on the paths of health and nutrition your body will lead you to what it needs and craves. And for me that was Liv Sxinney. I can not say enough good things about it! I love it on so many levels!

I also have another fabulous gift in my life that I was recently introduced to by my best friend, Heidi. I was telling her about how frustrated I was getting about not being able to find an audio book on how to become a motivational speaker at the book stores. She then told me about an incredible newly launch website called iLearningGlobal. It's a website that specializes self improvemet. It offers world famous teachers/specialist that people pay thousands of dollars to attend one of their seminars. I was instantly interested in learning more. As soon as I sat down and watched it I was hooked! I gladly joined for $109 and only pay $79 a month to be able to have some of the most famous specialists in the world teach me in the comforts of my home. I listen to various speakers everyday and have already grown in my skills and confidence by doing so. I have really, really big dreams and I know this is a huge tool in my life to assist me in accomplishing them. If you'd like to learn more check out www.ilearningglobal.biz/cwhitaker. If you do email me your thoughts, I love to hear what you think.

Also, another gift in my life is I recently joined an online network community called Perfect Networker. If you own your own business or do network marketing and would like to connect with outstanding people I highly recommend you join Perfect Networking at http://www.perfectnetworker.com/ and best of all it's free!

Well, I need to get back to working on my book. Have a great day! :)

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!

TRICKS FOR NOT TREATING



HAPPY HALLOWEEN! What a fun time of year. My kids are really looking forward to an awesome day. They get to wear their costumes to school. I love to watch the enthusiasm in their eyes and the extra little jump in each step. We carved pumpkins last night, each of them made their own design, they all turned out adorable! We're having really warm weather. For the first time that I can remember we were outside looking at the jack-o-lanterns light up without jackets on. It was wonderful! Too bad it can't last, but at least we've been blessed to have nice weather for this long.

For those of you that love sugar today will be a day of great temptation. But do not fear, you can have a trick or two up your sleeve to ward off those haunting treats. Remember nothing tastes as good as thin feels! Literally! Visualize yourself saying, "No, thank you." When people offer you a sugaring treat you really can say "No, thank you." You won't offend them, they won't care if you eat it or not. But you'll feel proud and more self confident by honoring yourself and your goals.

Be sure to take extra cRave with you today. Have a stash in your car or purse to be well prepared when you go to a social gathering. Just before you leave for a party tonight take some cRave along with a big swig of Liv SXinney water. That will help give you the willpower to say no and to stay focused on your goals. If you really want a treat have a protein bar instead. It will taste like a candy bar but without the fat and empty calories. And if you choose to have some candy have 1 or 2 bite size rather than a bunch throughout the day. Remember if you fall off the wagon and give in to all of the high calorie, high fat goodies today you'll wake up feeling awful both physically and mentally. No one likes to hit the rock bottom lows after indulging in candy. Its just not worth it!

Be true to yourself - especially today! Have a fantastic time enjoying Halloween by staying on your LivFit Lifestyle plan. Trust me, you'll be glad you did!

TIP OF THE DAY....

EATING CLEAN

If you don't exercise as you should then do your body a favor and feed it the fuel its craving. Which is whole nutritious foods. Eat whole grains, whole wheat pasta, clean protein, lentils, fresh fruits & veggies and drink plenty of filtered water.

Try to eat at at least 3 servings of veggies and fruits a day along with eating clean protein with each meal to build strong muscles and burn fat. And as always drink Liv SXinney all day long. Liv Sxinney will balance the body and keep it in an alkaline ph balance, which will ward off illness, stress and disease.

By feeding the body whole foods it will do wondrous things for you. You'll have more energy, look younger, spend less time in the doctors office, have healthier skin & hair and you'll feel fantastic! So think twice about what you put in your mouth. As I always say if God didn't make it don't eat it! :)

MAKING TIME FOR EXERCISE

Wow! It sure has been a busy day. We're finishing up a custom home for my sister right now, it turned out absolutely gorgeous!!! When it's fully completed I'll take pictures and post them on my blog. I'm excited for my sisters family to move in soon. It's such a beautiful home, I'm really happy for her.

I've also been running around doing Liv Sxinney too. I met with an awesome friend named Alisha for lunch today. We had a wonderful time together. It turns out that she has already signed up for Liv Sxinney under my top sponsor. I didn't realize that when we met. I ran into Alisha at the gas station and remembered her from a restaurant I had recently been to. It turns out that we have a lot in common. We're going to start working together now. I love synchronicity! :)

I hear people say all the time that they don't have time for exercise. I can totally understand that, life really can be so busy. So if you're one of those extra busy people here are some ways to incorporate exercise into your every day routine.

1. Park your car far away from the building you're going to. Then walk briskly to your destination to burn a few extra calories along the way.

2. Take the stairs. If you work above the main floor by all means, take the stairs! And when you do (if you have good knees) take two steps at a time as quickly as you can. By doing so you'll feel your glutes, hamstrings, and quads getting tighter and tighter over time.

3. Clean your house! Turn up the tunes and dance to the music while cleaning. Vacuum quickly, mop well, and dust the entire home all on the same day. And of course always take your stairs two steps at a time.

4. Walk to the mail box. How many times do you pick up your mail in your car? Next time take a walk and get some fresh air. You'll feel refreshed and re-energized by doing so.

5. Walk your kids to school. If your children walk to school, put on your gym shoes and walk with them. You'll have one-on-one bonding time and you'll get fit along the way.

6. Do yard work. Mow your own lawn and weed your garden weekly. It's not only incredible exercise but it's highly therapeutic too!

7. Make-up Exercises. When putting on your make-up or blow drying your hair do what I call Make-up exercises. You can do leg curls (to lift your behind), calve raises, side leg raises, squats and lunges (before getting dressed). I do these exercises every morning while getting ready for the day. You can get a good work out without stepping into the gym.

8. Sweep your sidewalks and gutters. Keeping your sidewalks & gutters clear of dirt will not only make it safer for your children while they're at play but will also give your home added curb appeal. Sweeping will strengthen your upper and lower body at the same time. So clean up an burn off the fat!

9. Walk your dog. Your pets need exercise too. Grab your leash and head for some fresh air. You'll not only feel stronger by doing so but you'll also be able to clear your mind as well.

10. Wake up 15 minutes earlier. If you really want to change your physique then you have to prioritise your goals. I suggest waking up 15 minutes earlier each day and exercise. In the beginning it may seem daunting but after awhile you'll see the results of your efforts and will want to increase your time. And then before you know it you'll be getting up 30 minutes earlier and then an hour to insure you get your exercising in for the day.

Make time for exercise each day. Be sure to make it a priority! Use some of these simple ideas to help jump start your LivFit Lifestyle. Be sure to drink Liv SXinney all day long. By incorporating more physical activities & drinking Liv SXinney you'll find that you'll have more energy and you'll begin to shed those unwanted pounds. Living a fit lifestyle is an awesome feeling. So get up, get moving and live life! :)

Here are the pics from the expo as promised from last weekend. Irene, Paul, Lucy & I had a ball working together. It was seriously so fun to meet the amazing people that were drawn to our Liv Sxinney booth. I've never sold a product before because I haven't believed in one enough to promote it - until Now!

I'm passionate about sharing Liv Sxinney with all I can because of the incredible health benefits. Most people today are in need of weight loss. Taking care of our bodies is rewarding on so many levels. Every single person I know who drinks it daily and actually gives it time to work has had phenomenal results. I cherish the opportunities I have in helping others improve their health, nutrition and fitness. I'm all about teaching people to understand the importance of balancing the mind, body & spirit. And Liv Sxinney is the only weight loss product that balances the body, its amazing! The PH is 8.5 - which is incredible! So promoting Liv Sxinney is very, very easy for me, because I believe in it. I live what I teach and I teach what I live. Check out these great videos from Zxoom http://media.zxoom.us/lifestylevideo.wmv & http://www.livfitcafe.com/LF.wmv.
Liv SXinney rocks! I'm deeply grateful to have it in my life and to have made such incredibly awesome friends along the way. Life really is so good! I'm looking forward to doing another expo very soon! :)

NEW FAMILY PHOTOS







I'm embarrassed to say but I haven't had a professional family photo taken since my oldest son was a baby, until last week. My amazing neighbor is a phenomenal photographer and she was kind enough to do a trade with us. You can see her work at http://www.byjess.com/blog/ My husband fixed her computer awhile back and in return she did out photos. I was so pleased with them that I had to share them. We seriously had so much fun! I'm taking my fitness training to the next level, I'm putting together a web site and I've asked Jess to be my photographer for all my pics. I adore her and am so grateful to have her as my dear friend and neighbor.

I did an expo last weekend was very slow due to UEA weekend. Considering we still did well and signed up 2 people to be Liv Sxinney distributor's and got 30 good leads. Irene and I had a ball together. I love her so much! My family stayed the weekend too. They were in heaven swimming and playing with dad while I was working. It was great to have a retreat but it was equally as fun to come home to our animals. We came home a day early because we missed Chance, our dog and of course our horses. They're part of our family too. We love them so much.
While we were on our little get-a-way I decided to enjoy some treats. I basically decided to rewarded myself for accomplishing my fitness goals that I had set. So I did! But in the end I had way too many dark chocolate m&m's (yummy). After a few weeks of eating really clean I gave myself the okay to eat the m&m's I brought for my kids. Unfortunately I ate too many (as it often goes). Regretably I now have to get back on track and repair the damage. It's good to eat a treat now and again both for your body and your mind. It was fun to feel free that way - but I have to say again NOTHING TASTES AS GOOD AS THIN FEELS! And boy did I remind myself of that this weekend! ;)

WHAT A WOMAN WANTS EXPO

It's such a beautiful day here in Utah. It makes for a happy, cheerful morning. Well, my family is heading up to What A Woman Wants Expo in Park City today. We're running a booth today and tomorrow. I'm really looking forward to sharing the Liv SXinney products with those that attend. I'm doing it with Irene, my dear Sxinney Sister, we're going to have a ball I'm sure. I'll take lots of pictures and I'll post some after the weekend. My kids have school off until next Tuesday for fall break so we're going to make a weekend of it. We're all thrilled to get away and enjoy some R&R (well my family will anyway). I've set my intention on attracting business builders and those who sincerely want to lose weight and improve their health. Liv Sxinney is the most amazing product I've EVER tried - literally! I've study health and nutrition for the past 15 years and I have yet to see a product that not only assists in weight loss in a safe way, but also improve both physical and mental health. I've found a gold mine! I'm incredibly grateful to have Liv Sxinney in my life.

Liv SXinney and Go is the perfect combination for fat loss. Liv SXinney and Go ROCK! This morning I tested my body fat percentage and I'm down 5%!!!!! I'm one happy camper. I haven't felt this lean in a long time. My abs are intense and my obliques are shredded. I'm telling you what if you're serious about improving your physique and want a higher quality of life then you must take Liv SXinney & Go! I love, love, love them! It's amazing how much change I've seen in such a short amount of time!!!! Yea! Gotta love it!

Well, I'm off. I'm looking forward to a very active and playful weekend! :)

TIP OF THE DAY....

MIND & MUSCLES CONNECTION

To build lean, sexy muscles you need to focus on each muscle you're working when weight training. If you go to the gym and chit chat with your friends as you lift you will not see results as quickly. On the other hand if you focus on your biceps and engage your mind as you lift and see them as rock solid then your mind will tell your muscles to work harder and recover sooner.

It's scientifically proven that the power of the mind is incredibly powerful. See yourself as you want to be. Speak positively to yourself daily. And really focus on your muscles when you're working out. Feel the burn and watch your body transform before your very eyes. There's nothing more rewarding than experiencing the ultimate benefits of your hard heart pounding workouts! It's exhilarating! So remember to focus, focus, focus! Always engage your mind when lifting weights! It's well worth your time & effort to do it right.

Begin Your Transformation Today!!!!

It's been a great morning. I woke up feeling happy and well. Last weekend was soooo much fun!!! Matthew and I had such a blast together. We went shopping all day Saturday. We were having such a great time together that we decided to extend our date. We spontaneously booked a hotel and stayed the night in Salt Lake. Our kids were excited for us to get away, they could see how much happy we were. And boy did we have a ball! I'll never forget last weekend that's for sure. I'm grateful I married my best friend. He's such an amazing husband, I love him more than words are able to express.

So the other day my dear, dear friend called and asked for some fitness advice. I was grateful for the opportunity to assist her in achieving her fitness goals. I thought it would be beneficial to share how to begin reaching your body transformation dreams. Who doesn't want a lean, sexy body! After all, we were all meant to have lean healthy bodies, not frumpy, overweight bodies. If you truly love your body as it is right now and speak kindly to yourself your transformation will happen much more quickly and easily.

Here is what I wrote in an email to my friend...

Okay, for your fitness routine here is a rundown of what I want you to do. Keep in mind each time I give you a list of workouts it will be different to achieve maximum results. I’m all about looking fit and sexy. After all, life is meant to be full of abundance in every area of our lives – including our physical body.

First of all I would like you write down 5 positive affirmations & 5 fitness goals focusing on your physique. Write them and see yourself as though you have already accomplished them. Be sure to love and thank you body each day for being the best it can be. Write your goals on paper (do not type them) so that your subconscious can go right to work on accomplishing your goals. It’s awesome how powerful our minds are, we are truly creators, so why not create the body of our dreams!

After you write your goals and affirmations (be sure to read them aloud daily) get the Body for Life book and put a star by the exercises you enjoy doing. Then use the book examples when working out until the exercise forms are memorized. Good form is crucial. Always workout in front of a mirror to insure you are doing the movements correctly. Alternating days as we discussed do upper and lower body weight training 3 times a week. Be sure to weight train prior to cardio to use up your glycogen stores. Then do interval cardio to burn fat. And always take Go just before working out. Remember we want to train smart to achieve a long, lean physique sooner.

After selecting the exercises do 4 sets of 16 reps the first week then do 20 reps the second week, alternating each week. Start out with a 5 to 10 minute warm up. After you’re warmed up stretch the muscles groups to be worked. You can tear your muscles and cause injury if you do not warm up and stretch prior to your workouts. I always start out with lower weights (dumbbells) for the first two sets and heavier for the second two sets. Be sure to do chest, triceps, biceps, & back in order then repeat the same set sequence until you have finished your 4 sets. Go from one exercise to the next with little mini breaks in between if needed. And then finish your workout with stretching again. If you have time or choose to do cardio the same day as weights do so after weight training. Finish with 20 minute interval training following 10 minutes cool down. After strength training/cardio don’t forget to drink a recovery drink directly after your finished. The recovery drink is just as essential as eating clean. If you only do cardio wait 1 hour before drinking a recovery drink. During that hour your body will burn your glycogen stores. And before you know it you’ll begin to see beautiful, lean muscles in the mirror. It’s awesome!

Follow these guidelines and change your exercise routine weekly to shock your muscles. Your body is amazing gift. It has muscle memory, if you do the same exercises day after day your body will not burn fat as quikly and your physique remain the same. So mix it up, exercise daily and believe in your dreams! Dreams really do come true, if you believe!

SMALL TRICKS FOR BIG WEIGHT LOSS


OCTOBER ALREADY....

Wow! I can't believe its already October! Where has the time gone??? I'm actually looking forward to 2009, this year has been rough with the down slope of the economy. It will be nice to have it behind us once and for all. I'm really looking forward to a highly profitable new year! I'm grateful for all that I have learned this year. Through the difficult times I turned to Heavenly Father for guidance and protection. I'm thankful for the answers to my many heartfelt prayers. As a home builder we were unfortunate and lost a lot of money on our spec home. At the time it was terrifying and caused me to stress and worry. Each day was a different emotional day. At times I was strong and filled with faith, and other I was down and fearful. But in the end as it always does, it all worked out. We learned many valuable lessons, resulting in making me stronger, wiser and more grateful for who I am today. As I said before, I welcome 2009 with enthusiasm for a bright future! Life really is so good!!!
Normally I'm sad when summer comes to an end, but I have to say that we've had the most amazing weather lately. Its been in the high 80's all week! I've been outside soaking up the sunshine as much as possible. Too bad it can't last longer. I look at the beautiful weather as a gift from above. I'm still out riding my horses in short sleeves - I'm loving it! And because the weather is cooling down slowly it enriches the warm feelings of fall. I love the smell of autumn's crisp air. It's fun to bake yummy foods for my children and to spend more time together indoors as a family. My kids love playing together, it warms my heart to hear them laugh and enjoy each other.

Yesterday was loads of fun. I was lucky enough to go horse back riding twice!!! How lucky am I! :) I went with my dear friend Jennifer in the morning. That's her in the picture, that was three years ago. We're definitely kindred spirits. We met while boarding our horses (before I had my barn). We became friends instantly, she's such a light in my life. We have so much fun together. She actually had to sell her horse, Kid, it was sad. But luckily Page adores her. We get together often to ride. She rode Page and I rode Flash yesterday, we were all in heaven together. Then in the evening I rode Page with my "oldest daughter" Lindsey, she rode her horse, Ellie. She's boarding her horse here. Her mom, Angie, is one of my best friends, they're the family that moved into my neighborhood this summer from Chicago. I've loved having them home again. I have to admit I am one blessed girl!
I read an awesome article called 11 Small Tricks for Big Weight Loss. It was great so I had to share it with you. Go to http://health.msn.com/weight-loss/slideshow.aspx?cp-documentid=100214611. Add some Liv Sxinney, Go, & cRave and you'll have it made! Portion control is the most important aspect of living a longer, healthier life. Most people don't realize how essential it is to eat less. Our bodies don't like a lot of food at once, it can only digest a certain amount of calories at one time. Over eating bogs the body down and makes you feel yucky - so why over eat? Its just not worth it. As I always say, "Nothing tastes as good as thin feels!" So eat less, play more, and give love today. Then pay attention to how much more vigor and zest for life you feel. Its simple and highly rewarding.
Well, I'm off to take my kids to school. I'm looking foreword to a very happy, relaxing day!

TIP OF THE DAY

LOSE BODY FAT FAST

The quickest way to lose unwanted fat fast is to drink Go and Liv SXinney. Go is an l-arginine product that is a precursor to nitric oxide (NO). NO increases blood flow which delivers essential nutrients to muscle tissue when under stress from weight lifting, which in turn aids in building leaner, faster, stronger muscle mass. It is also proven to burn fat resulting in weight loss. It give you tons more energy in and out of the weight room. If you want results then drink Go twice a day along with Liv SXinney all day long. By doing so you'll have lean, sexy muscles before you know it!

GO & LIV SXINNEY!!!

I'VE LOST 5 LBS!!!! YEAH!!!

I had such a fun weekend, I played with my family and rode my horses a lot. Then yesterday I bought a new dressage saddle! I'm excited for it to come, it's very nice . I'm anxious to try it on Flash. He's going to look absolutely stunning. My dear, dear friend Irene (also my Sxinney Sister) is a world famous dressage trainer. She trained 4 Olympic dressage horses and guess what??? She's going to start training me and Flash!!! How lucky am I!!! I feel incredibly blessed to have her in my life. We have such great times together.

Then yesterday I did a video shoot for Zxoom's hook video. They did a rough draft of it, you can check it out at http://www.livfitcafe.com/HVrough.wmv. The final copy will be much better, but this version of it was still great and full of high energy. It's going to be an awesome tool to send out to everyone, I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product.

And to top it all off, I've lost 5 lbs by using a supplement called Go!!! I absolutely LOVE Go & Liv Sxinney. I take Go (an l-arginine product) every morning and evening on an empty stomach. And by doing so I've had phenomenal results! I've tried a ton of products & supplements for muscle repair and fat loss. I literally have not ever experienced such amazing results in a such a short amount of time. I also drink my Liv Sxinney all day long - together I think I've hit a gold mine! My fat percentage has gone down too! I'm leaner, I have more energy and I recover much more quickly than ever before. I've also noticed that I'm not nearly as hungry or have cravings like I use to. I'm psyched about the products!

If you're working out and not seeing the results you're looking for then I highly suggest you try Go! It will literally change your life. You can have the body you've always dreamed of. With a little hard work in the weight room and taking Go & Liv Sxinney each day, YOU WILL see results fast! I can't express how powerful the products are, I'm so pleased with them. I for one plan on taking them for the rest of my life!

PROTEIN POWER

BUILD POWERFUL MUSCLES WITH PROTEIN

Did you know that eating quality protein builds strong, beautiful muscles? A good rule of thumb is to eat at least 20 to 25 grams of pure protein with every meal - including snacks! For example you can eat salmon, tuna, lean red meat, tofu, chicken breasts, turkey, protein powders, protein bars (low carb), fat free cottage cheese & egg whites. Add a complex carb, veggies and some good fats (i.e. flax seed oil, egg yolk, extra virgin olive oil, fish oil, avocado or almonds & walnuts) and you'll have a LivFit meal.

Extra Tip: Always remember to exercise portion control with each meal. A typical portion size is the size of your fist for your three main meals and half that for your snacks.

ARE YOU EATING CLEAN?

Yesterday was so fun! My daughter cantered in her english saddle for the first time and in the rain to boot! She was at her lesson when she did it, her trainer was just as proud of her and I was! She was on cloud 9! Pagie Girl is doing extremely well with her. I'm tickled they love each other so much.

This morning we woke up to a raining overcast day. It's been a long time since we've had a rainy day like today. It makes me want to stay home and read a good book. It also makes me want to make homemade wheat bread, chicken noodle soup and snuggle with my kids when they get home from school. I'm typically a sunshine girl, but it's kind of fun to have rain for a change. My kids love it too.

I want to touch base on the importance of eating a clean diet. My typical diet consist of whole foods with about 10% snacks, or some type of comfort foods. For me a snack would be my home made no-bake cookies made with skim milk, peanut butter, cocoa and oatmeal - it's highly nutritious and very yummy. Or I'll make whole wheat pumpkin (dark chocolate chip) cookies or whole wheat oatmeal cookies. I grind my own wheat so it's extra delicious & nutritious. But I rarely eat those, there's too much fat & sugar despite the nutritional benefits.

Eating clean means to eat foods that are whole & unprocessed. Which means low in sodium & sugar. I try not to eat too many protein bars because of the processing involved. If I'm on the road and am not able to eat a homemade meal then I'll have a cRave and take an all natural protein bar. But my general rule of thumb is to be prepared with my food. If I know I'm going to be gone for a few hours then I'll eat a meal prior to leaving. I eat at least 25 grams of protein and a complex carb, veggies & some good fat right before leaving my home. And I always take my SXinney Water & cRave with me too. It makes a huge difference in keeping my blood sugar level. I love it so much! Seriously!

So try to eat clean every clean 3 to 4 hours, drink at least a 1/2 a gallon to a gallon of water a day and try to eat veggies at least 3 times a day. I have a grocery list in the bottom part of my blog. Use it if you need ideas of what foods to buy to assist you in eating clean. If you follow the 5 meals a day guideline you'll be well on your way to a leaner, happier you! :)

TIP OF THE DAY...

HEALTHY MOVIE SNACKS

Having your pantry stocked up with healthy snacks is a great way to start a weekend. So when you want to watch a movie or a favorite TV show after a busy week you can make a yummy low calorie snack to help you relax and unwind. Snacking is an emotionally satisfying. Just be wise and kind to your body by choosing healthy snacks that will make you feel good at the end of the day.

HEALTHY SNACKS

1. My favorite! Air-popped popcorn. Use low calorie butter spray and a dash of cinnamon and you've got my favorite treat! It's low in calories & fat and high in fiber & also has protein, so you can enjoy it without guilt.

2. Hummus. Another great healthy snack. Cut up your favorite veggies for chips and you've got a crunchy, delicious treat.

3. Blended beans and salsa. I love fat free refried beans or blended black beans mixed with salsa. For chips I cut up Mission wholegrain tortillas (that are high in fiber and protein) and bake them in my toaster oven. You can also cut up wholegrain pitas, place them on a pan spray butter spray, sea salt and Parmesan cheese and bake them in the oven until toasted - it's wonderful!

4. Fat free cottage cheese and low fat yogurt. I eat this combination daily. It's high in protein and low in calories and its light and refreshing.

Remember that there is nothing wrong with snacking, only wrong choices when choosing to snack. ;)

ARE YOU REALLY HUNGRY?

You have read this article with the title 2008. You can bookmark this page URL http://antsonafarm.blogspot.com/2008/09/are-you-really-hungry_4.html. Thanks!

ARE YOU REALLY HUNGRY?

When beginning a lifestyle change like the LivFit Lifestyle it's important to understand when your body is truly hungry. Did you know that often times when you feel a hunger pang your body is actually telling you its dehydrated? Or even more often its an emotion; you may be board, lonely or stressed which makes you crave comfort foods to help soothe your feelings.

Here's a few rules to go by to keep your hunger in check:

1. Eat often. Eat a SMALL meal every three hours - without any snacking between meals.

2. Wait 10 minutes. When you feel hungry get a tall glass of SXinney Water and a packet of cRave then wait ten minutes. If you're still hungry eat a handful of nuts, but don't over indulge and give in to extra unwanted calories, especially if it's between meals.

3. Stay hydrated. Drinking at lest 64 to 100 oz of Liv SXinney Water a day will keep you full and will elevate your metabolism. You won't desire as much food when you're well hydrated.

4. Check your emotions. Take note if you're truly hungry or just board. Most people get the munchies (me included) when their board. Stay active and stay busy. Try to stay out of the kitchen when emotions arise.

By really listening to your body you'll soon discover that most of the times you think your hungry you're actually thirsty or its your emotions taking over. Do yourself a favor and really try to follow the rule of eating at least 5 meals a day. By doing so you'll reprogram your body to know when it needs fuel and you'll soon get past the random eating. Make a decision today to begin your new LivFit Lifestyle! Make the change, believe in yourself and follow through. :)

HOW TO LIVE A HAPPY & HEALTHY LIFE


What a fun weekend we had as a family. We celebrated Labor Day by having a family barbecue, we had yummy food, wonderful company, and a lot of relaxation. I have to admit that I ate way to much fruit!!! I literally felt like I was going to pop! I was so frustrated with myself... but it at least I didn't eat anything processed or with sugar. Still the same, I had way too much of a good thing. So now that I've recovered I'm back on track! Yeah!

Often times I see people staring at me in a grocery store or at dinner. At first it used to bother me but now I just ignore it. It's because I feel good about myself and people are drawn to a positive person with a high self-esteem (not an arrogant attitude). I've even been approached with questions of how I stay looking young. I thank them then tell them how I live my life. I am richly blessed with a loving family fist and foremost which makes for a happy life. And in return I reflect happiness and security.

Anyone who really wants to live their best life has to want to be happy and feel great. My top ten tips for looking your best and feeling great is sure and simple. It has always worked for me.

LOOK YOUR BEST TIPS

1. Get up in the morning and say aloud or in your mind 5 things that your grateful for. Start your day off right - having the attitude of gratitude.

2. Get showered and put on make up or shave (for you men out there) every day! It doesn't have to take long, by taking pride in yourself is telling those around you that you love who you are. Then put on a nice outfit and not sweats or an oversized T-shirt. By doing so you'll feel better about yourself from the very beginning of the day.

3. Get in an exercise routine. Morning, noon or evening whatever fits your schedule get at least 30 minutes of heart pumping fitness into your day. Try to get your heartrate up in the morning and again in the evening if you can. Make it a priority daily!

4. Tell those around you that you appreciate and love them. The more you are grateful for the more you will have to be grateful! It's a beautiful thing!!!

5. Take at least 10 minutes for yourself each day to ponder and reflect on spirit. Be prayerful daily and know that there are no accidents, everything in life is for our learning and growth. After all, you wouldn't be who you are today without the experiences in your life.

6. Eat clean wholesome foods! The saying "you are what you eat" is very, very true. Most people feed their cars and animals better than themselves! Don't you want to live a long healthy life for your family? Then buck up and eat right! There are no more excuses - eat every 3 hours consisting of a lean protein, complex carb & veggies. It's sweet and simple and you'll feel great too!
