FAMILY FITNESS


FAMILY FITNESS

I'm passionate about assisting others in achieving their fitness, weight loss goals & dreams.  I receive emails with questions almost daily from people wanting advice on how to improve their quality of life through diet & exercise.  

Today I received a question regarding how to introduce fitness to a child and what they can do to incorrporate exercise into their lives.  

Here is my reply...

Thank you for your kind words, it's my pleasure to connect with you. Congratulations on your daughter's great success at such a young age.


I wouldn't push her too much into doing serious workouts at the tender age of 12. If she truly has a desire & a passion to workout then you're goals for her are commendable; however, if it's your idea then it may cause body image issues for her in the future, of which, could be detrimental to her health in the long run.

I recommend to my clients to do family fitness activities to encourage children to embrace fitness. As a family go jogging or swimming at your local family fitness center, do fun aerobic videos, pushups, as well as go bike riding for excellent noninvasive activities that improve overall fitness levels at any age. You can even speed-walk the family dog around your neighborhood for additional evening exercise.

Be sure to allow her to be a "kid" and to enjoy yummy treats such as cookies, chips, ice-cream, etc. Lead by example, prepare healthy whole foods and lean meats for the three main meals of the day; breakfast, lunch and dinner. Have an abundance of fresh fruits, nuts and veggies that she loves to eat for her between meal snacks; encourage her to eat often to sustain her energy levels and muscles development. I hope this was helpful...

Have a very Merry Christmas with your family and a joyful, prosperous New Year! 

I hope this inspires you to incorporate more exercise & activities with your family.  Keep moving and you'll feel healthier, happier & more empowered than ever!  It's truly a gift that only you can give yourself! 

Until next time... Liv Fit, Train Hard & Liv Happy

QUOTES OF THE DAY


MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU

Your mind is extremely powerful, your thoughts and emotions are what ultimately create your life experiences. It's not your circumstances that makes you, it's how you choose to handle what comes your way. 

Take control of your mind and you will be in control of your life.  Keeping a positive mental attitude will skyrocket you to success. 

It's not always easy but if you continue to try and live in an attitude of gratitude your life will shift in miraculous ways.

This Christmas give yourself the gift of health & happiness, the gift that only you can give...


QUOTES...

"Our attitudes control our lives. Attitudes are a secret power working twenty-four hours a day, for good or bad. It is of paramount importance that we know how to harness and control this great force."
~Tom Blandi

"A great attitude does much more than turn on the lights in our worlds; it seems to magically connect us to all sorts of serendipitous opportunities that were somehow absent before the change."
~Earl Nightingale

"I am convinced that attitude is the key to success or failure in almost any of life's endeavors. Your attitude-your perspective, your outlook, how you feel about yourself, how you feel about other people-determines you priorities, your actions, your values. Your attitude determines how you interact with other people and how you interact with yourself."

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!


THANKSGIVING

I cherish this time of year, Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. The warmth of the energy that fills the air of giving, gratitude and unselfishness is absolutely wonderful! I relish time spent with my loving husband, children, extended family & friends, my heart overflows with love & gratitude, I am richly blessed beyond measure.

I adore gathering with my family as we give thanks for the infinite abundance Heavenly Father has blessed us with. I thoroughly enjoy & savor the delicious feast that's made with love, it fills my heart and soul with delight. It's a glorious day in every way!

It's also a day to forget all the clean eating rules. You don't need to worry about the weight that you'll gain, you can lose it within two weeks (by living the LivFit Lifestyle), unfortunately it comes on much quicker than it comes off. You don't need to worry about the fat grams or the high sugar desserts that you'll most likely pig out on either. Instead, focus on having an attitude of gratitude! Fill your heart with thankfulness to God for your health, loved ones and the bountiful blessings in your life. Doing so will allow your heart to feel more joy, peace & happiness.

A NEW DAY

Tomorrow is a new day, a new beginning... You can regroup and get back on track with your fitness goals.  It's not as difficult a you may think; begin by setting new goals & affirmations, visualize your physique as you wish it to be, exercise 4 to 6 days a week for at least 30 to 60 minutes and eat a small meal every 4 hours consisting of lean protein, good fats (with lunch & dinner) and lots of fresh veggies & salads.

Don't forget the importance of drinking at least a gallon or more of purified water, it will flush out toxins and keep your body well hydrated which will energize your sluggish body after a eating a huge Thanksgiving feast.  If you have Liv Sxinney drink at least 3 to 4 oz for the next 5 days to aid in weight loss, it will detox your cells which will release fat stores easier.

MY THANK YOU TO YOU

I have much to be grateful for.  I am so grateful for YOU! 

I would like to extend my gratitude to all my fabulous readers & clients... I'm thankful to you for taking the time to read my blog. I'm thankful for all my clients past & present for their roll they played in my life and for their light and love they shared with me, I adore everyone that I have been blessed to share my gifts with.  I will always remember them and cherish the time I spent with each one... Each was divinely directed to me and for that I am deeply thankful...

May your Thanksgiving day be filled with love, joy & happiness as you gather with family and friends to give thanks for all your many blessings. I hope it's a day to remember for years to come...

EAT CLEAN & LOSE WEIGHT

LOSE WEIGHT BEFORE THE HOLIDAYS

Would you like to lose 5 to 10 lbs before the Holidays?  Eating clean is 90% of feeling great & the key to losing weight even more so then exercising alone. Don’t get me wrong exercising is essential as well but eating clean will make or break your fitness goals & dreams.   You can do crunches, lift hard, ride the bike until your want to puke but if you turn around and eat junk food or high in fat, refined, processed foods you won't see the results you desperately desire.

HOW TRANSFORM YOUR PHYSIQUE

To transform your body from flabby to fit & tone you don’t have to workout hard 7 days a week you just need to workout at least 30 to 60 minutes 5 to 6 days a week. Building a lean physique is attainable.  To live the LivFit Lifestyle is simply making exercise part of your daily routine, eating healthy, whole foods and keeping a powerful positive attitude. You can lose 5 to 10 lbs before the Holidays! 

Eating whole foods will not only aid in weight loss but you will also have a happier attitude about life, you'll be more patient, you'll have more self esteem & you'll feel empowered!  You'll also find that people will respect and look up to your more because your energy will shift.  When you take time for you and give thanks for all your blessings the world will seem brighter and you'll have more joy in your life.


HOW TO EAT CLEAN

Eating clean is to eat whole foods ~ that means NO white foods, high sodium, high fat, processed foods!  Eat the goodness of life lots of fresh fruits, veggies & nuts.  Eating a small meal every 3 to 4 hours consisting of lean protein, a complex carb, veggies & some good fat will jump start a lazy metabolism.

Drink a lot of water, at least a gallon a day, to assist your weight loss goals. Often times we mistake hunger for thirst.  If you get hungry between meals drink 10 oz of water and walk away form the kitchen.  If you're still hungry after 10 minutes grab a handful of raw almonds or eat an apple to hold you over until your next planned meal.  Drink Liv Sxinney throughout the day as well to detox your cells which will assist your weight loss efforts as well as give you more energy to get through your busy day.

JOURNAL KEEPING IS A MUST

If you’re finding it difficult to eat clean keep a diet journal. It doesn’t have to be fancy just a small notebook that you can keep with you easily. Write down everything you eat and drink, when and how you felt when you ate. Emotional eating can cause us all to gain unwanted weight and stress doesn’t help either. Practice stress management skills to release unwanted feelings by meditating, exercising, keeping a positive mental attitude and gratitude in your heart. Doing this each day you’ll find that you have more peace & happiness in your life and more to be grateful for.

Make eating healthy a high priority ~ and remember if God didn’t make it don’t eat it!

Until next time Liv Fit, Train Hard & Liv Happy!

BE HAPPY BY BEING CONTENT

Make the Best of Today

Do you recall a time when you thought, "What a coincidence!" Often what we might have thought of as an amazing coincidence is actually in reality a blessing from above that was perfectly orchestrated as a form of a miracle in our life. 

Can you think of a time when you knew that to be true?

Look back over the last several months of your life, when was the last time you received a tender mercy? What miracle was it?

Joy & happiness comes by having contentment in your heart. How can one be content when everything seems so out of sorts you may ask… It comes by appreciating the little things in life.

Focus on all the blessings that your divine creator has blessed you with. He knows what we need – He knows where we are needed. Each path leads us on a glorious journey, if we are continually grateful for all the good in our life He will continue to bless us with much abundance.

Having an attitude of gratitude will literally open doors where there were only walls… And you will soon find that you will have much more to be grateful for! He knows your heart better than you do. He knows the greatness that is in store for you. He will graciously pour down many miracles upon you if you but allow & believe that countless blessings are indeed in store for you.

Rejoice in your current situation. Give thanks for the life lessons learned. Then walk in faith knowing that the Lord is by your side each step of the way… Be happy by being content…

QUOTE OF THE DAY

“To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived, THIS is to have succeeded."

- Ralph Waldo Emerson

A GLORIOUS JOURNEY

A GLORIOUS NEW BEGINNING
“The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on or blame. The gift of life is yours; it is an amazing journey; and you alone are responsible for the quality of it.” ~Dan Zadra
How to create your day is much simpler then you may think. It is as simple as thinking thoughts that bring you joy.

You can begin this magical journey through your creative thoughts and emotions. If you woke up with self doubt stop and pray. Go to your knees and ask the Lord to guide your every thought, ask that your mind be filled with loving, virtuous thoughts of love and gratitude. Always ending with giving thanks for all the blessings He has and will graciously give you.

 

Now rejoice in Your New Day! Focus on Prosperity, Good Health, Happiness & Love!

Your divine creator has promised there is more than enough abundance of every kind for us to fill our lives with more to share….

So today give extra hugs, smiles & thoughts of appreciation to your precious loved ones & friends. Focus on all the wonderful things they do for you and then relish in the warm of your soul; for that is your spirit connecting with heaven...

Fill your day with gladness; expect miracles! You can have all that you desire….

Today is a New Beginning! YOU CAN achieve anything you set your heart upon… Begin by believing in YOU!  I do!

LOSE WEIGHT FASTER WITH GREEN2O!

LIV INTERNATIONAL HAS DONE IT AGAIN!

Liv has an AWESOME new product out call Green2o ~ it's Liv Sxinney Super Charged!  I love it and have had excellent results from using it.  I highly recommend you give it a try if you're in need of added energy (without stimulants), weight loss, or you just want improved health and wellness.

If you'd like to try Green2o which comes with a money back satisfaction guarantee go to http://www.zxoomers.com/livsxinneygirl to buy all Liv Intl's phenomenal product line at a discounted price.

Read for yourself the excellent benefits of drinking Green2o 

THE HEALTH DRINK ON THE GO!

Green2o is the next generation in nutritional beverages. Add it to your water and drink it all day long for a refreshing and hydrating rush of green water. Green2o floods your body with chlorophyllins, fulvic minerals, and antioxidants, supporting you throughout your busy and stressful day. Green2o is not a juice; it contains no caffeine or stimulants. This is pure water amplified with green goodness for health on the go.

It comes in two flavors: natural lemon and spearmint. Both are delicious and enjoyed by children and adults alike.

Green2o is a natural detoxifier, it is alkaline pH-balanced. Green2O is rich with chlorophyllins which come from the leaves of plants. Scientists have been studying the benefits of chlorophyllins for many years.

Chlorophyll may increase oxygen uptake in the blood which can increase energy and relieve fatigue. It also helps support the healthy flora in the bowels which also help improve our immune function. Chlorophyll’s antioxidant capacity helps protect the body at a cellular level, therefore it helps neutralize free radicals. Austrian scientists have found that chlorophyll and its derivatives successfully slow down the oxidation of LDL (the ‘bad’ cholesterol) which is a major contributor to cardiovascular disease.

Green2o also provides you with vital minerals that your body needs to stay working at its prime. Minerals are required for most everyday functions in the body, including enzyme and hormone production, muscle and bone development, healthy skin and the production of energy.

Green2o Benefits:

•Natural detoxifier
•Supports healthy digestion
•Alkaline pH-balanced
•Natural fulvic minerals
•Powerful antioxidant
•Electrolytes for recovery
•Heart-healthy resveratrol and proanthocyanidins
•Delicious hydration
•Natural energy booster

Not only is Green2o rich in chlorophyllins and fulvic minerals, but it also contains grape seed extract. Grape seed extract strengthens and protects living tissue. Grape seed extract is rich in proanthocyanidins and resveratrol. Its antioxidant power is 50 times stronger than Vitamin E and 20 times stronger than Vitamin C. Grape seed extract may strengthen blood vessels, improve skin, aid in circulation, and increase endurance. Unlike some vitamins and antioxidants that are quickly excreted from the body, Grape seed extract remains in the body for up to 72 hours. Grape seed extract is recommended by doctors in several European countries for prevention and treatment of a variety of health problems including cardiovascular disease, varicose veins, water retention, collagen damage, and arthritis. Because it is used pharmaceutically, it has undergone a tremendous amount of scientific testing.

Green2o is preservative free, and sweetened with stevia, a natural sweetener derived from plants. The natural lemon and mint flavors come from pure essential oils from lemon and mint. Green2o is what everybody needs.

Directions: Empty one stick-pack into 32-44 oz of water, and shake to dissolve. Drink all day long.

Ingredients: Fulvic Mineral Concentrate, Chlorophyllins, Grape Seed Extract, Stevia, and Lemon or Spearmint oil for flavor.

WEIGHT LOSS TIP THAT WORKS!

IS THE SCALE YOUR FRIEND???

Contrary to popular belief, weighing in DAILY will help you reach your weight loss goal much sooner than doing it once a month or not doing it at all.

I used to believe that the scale didn’t matter it was only how my clothes fit… But then I realized the power of the mind and how weighing in daily truly reaches an entirely new subconscious level that made me think twice about what I put in my mouth.


Those that are afraid of the scale have a mental block ~ they’re terrified of what number will be on the scale; so in turn they eat more calories than they should and gain unwanted weight… and before long instead of reaching for your skinny jeans you realize that your fat jeans are much too tight for comfort.

Studies have shown that using the scale daily will indeed help you lose weight faster!

Trust me weighing in daily will change you from having a scared, fat conscious mentality to a "bring it on" weight loss mentality. It’s highly empowering to get on the scale and watch the numbers go down  as you pursue your weight loss goal.

I’m not saying that there’s a certain weight you should be – that’s a personal choice. But if you want to shed a few pounds then stepping on the scale first thing each morning will highly motivate you to stay on track & focused on your fitness & weight loss goals.

Give it a try for a week and you’ll find that you won’t desire the high fats, sugar & sodium laden foods because you won’t want to see the number go up the next time you step on the scale.

BE REALISTIC IN YOUR GOALS

Be realistic and don't set an unattainable goal.  Start of by a setting a goal to lose a few pounds at a time, stay away from setting a big weight loss number or it will be overwhelming and you probably will give up before you even get started... When setting a weight loss goal you have to begin with a positive mental attitude to achieve ultimate success that will last.  Start off by wanting to lose 5 to 10 lbs, once you achieve that and you find that you want to lose more weight then set a new goal again of wanting to lose 5 to 10 lbs.  Take baby steps it's much easier both mentally & emotionally as you begin to work towards your ultimate weight loss goal.

EAT SMART TO LOSE WEIGHT

By eating smart and often, every 3 to 4 hours, you will be able to keep your waistline down and you’ll find that you’ll have sustained energy throughout the day.

What does eating smart mean? Eating clean and practicing portion control. By having lean protein, a complex carb & lots of fresh veggies with each meal you'll find that you'll be satisfied longer without feeling heavy. Remember, protein builds muscle ~ the more muscle you have the higher your metabolic rate which results in burning more calories at rest ~ who doesn’t want that?

Protein alone won’t build lean muscles however, you have to be active throughout the day and exercise daily to maintain lean muscle tissue. Lifting weights is a must to create a lean, shapely physique which in turn burns fat tissue and builds beautiful muscles. And to wrap it up weighing in each day will keep you focused on your gaols to achieving your fitness & weight loss goals.

So don’t be afraid of the scale, let it be your friend & personal motivator. Visualize your ideal goal weight & the physique you desire each night before you go to sleep and before you know it you WILL see your goal weight when you step on the scale!

If you gain a few pounds, no worries, that’s just a friendly reminder to cut back on your caloric intake and get moving more. The scale truly is your friend, the more than you realize that the easier it will be to get on the scale each morning. 

Until next time… Liv Fit, Train Hard & Liv Happy!

P.S. ~ Below are details on the health benefits of drinking Liv Sxinney...

Liv SXinney®

The Flagship Product
Get it. Drink it. Lose it.

Liv SXinney is a concentrated blend of chlorophyll and fulvic minerals. You add the concentrate to water and drink it all day long. It balances your energy levels, gives you the needed minerals your body needs to feel healthy, and it tastes great. Drinking Liv SXinney literally floods your body with optimal nutrition.

Benefits of Chlorophyll and Fulvic Minerals:

•Deodorizes, detoxifies and balances energy levels
•Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties
•Maintains proper body system balance

•May improve immune system response

•Helps to reduce cravings for sweets

 
There is so much that can be said for this product: how it hydrates your body, taking away thirst cravings that can often be mistaken for hunger pangs. When you drink Liv SXinney, you are retraining your body to know the difference between thirst and hunger.

Liv SXinney Samples or SXinney Minnies

1 oz. packets for on the go

Another huge plus in Liv SXinney is the fulvic minerals. Our soils have been so depleted over the years by over-farming, the use of inorganic fertilizers and pesticides, that even the very best fruits and vegetables do not have the minerals that we need on a daily basis. The body’s weight related functions, like appetite, hunger, metabolic rate, metabolism of fats and sugars, blood-glucose levels, calorie-burning, and so on, operate more efficiently when we have an optimum intake of minerals. Liv SXinney is full of fulvic minerals which are harvested from ancient plant beds rich in the minerals we need.

YOU TOO CAN ACCOMPLISH YOUR GOALS & DREAMS


YOU CAN ACCOMPLISH YOUR DREAMS!

Do you dream of being fit, thin, happy & strong?
Do you believe in your divine abilities to truly be able to accomplish your goals & dreams?

Dreams litearlly do come true if you believe & take the steps necessary to succeed.

Many people look at my life and think I have it all but in reality they don't know how often I struggle with chronic fatigue on a daily basis.  I use to have self doubt and ate the wrong foods too...

But then one day I had an awakening and realized that I truly had divinity within me which meant that I was a creator! I could take charge of my health & wellness to transform my body & my life and so I did! I started out with baby steps at first which lead to bigger and bigger steps soon I found myself running free ~ it was a glorious feeling beyond expression!

RELEASE SELF DOUBT & LIMITING THOUGHTS

You can release limiting thoughts & beliefs and YOU can lose weight! Anyone can! It's just a matter of shifting your thought process and belief system about yourself from limiting energy to empowering energy, just as I did many, many years ago. If you truly implement the guidelines, tips & tricks I have on my blog
You too CAN accomplish your dreams in ALL areas of your life!

I use my powerful creative thoughts each and every day to create the life of my dreams. I do it to accomplish my fitness & weight loss goals as well as for all that my heart desires.

That’s how I was able to get my dream horse, Xander, a magnificent Friesian! I envisioned him as already being mine on a daily basis. I saw him in my minds eye and felt in my heart what it was like having him living in my barn, I saw & felt myself grooming him and riding him in the wind, I did that throughout the day. An each night when I went to bed and I felt his love and the warm of loving him.

I also used the same process to obtain my lean physique. I ALWAYS see myself as fit, strong & healthy. I think and say my positive affirmation aloud & silently often throughout the day with love and gratitude to Heavenly Father as though I’ve already achieved my goals ~ I literally feel the feelings of already having that which I deeply desire.

That is the key secret to success ~ is to “feel” the emotions of already having all that your heart desires. Feeling joy & happiness will skyrocket your dreams to become a reality in your life!

LOVING YOU!!!

It's a matter of loving you enough to take charge of your health and fitness today! Our bodies do NOT like excess food, fat & calories, when you reach for so called "comfort foods" you'll find that 90% of the time you're more tired and depressed than before you ate the empty calories ~ which means you're eating emotionally instead of truly feeding & nurturing your body with foods it craves to live a full life filled with happiness & vitality.

If you need an added support to begin living a healthier way of life consider drinking Liv Sxinney, it is made of chlorophyll & fulvic minerals – the building blocks of life. It will give you more energy and will assist in shifting how you feel emotionally along with helping you desire healthy foods. It also assist in weight loss and curbing cravings as well it has anti-inflammatory properties. I love it and drink it all day long every day! It’s delicious and very refreshing.

I hope you take time today to listen to your heart and then to take the action necessary to begin to achieve your dreams; that will be the first step in transforming your physique & your life in miraculous ways.

Believe in YOU! I DO!

DO YOU REALLY WANT TO BE FIT?


Do YOU Really Want to be Fit?

I'm constantly asked how to get in shape... It's always a mental decision to begin any lifestyle change.  I decided to be fit because I wanted to be a strong mother for my children and a healthy wife for my husband.  I wanted to be free of frustrations and guilt of not fitting my clothes well.  I wanted to have more energy & feel empowered every single day.  And most of all, I wanted to believe in me!  So I made the choice to get in shape.  I decided that eating healthy food tastes a whole lot better than eating high fat foods that only made me feel worse in the morning.  After all, nothings more frustrating than working out hard in the gym only to sabatage my efforts by eating poorly - I've done it a million times and trust me it's not worth it!

It's Up to YOU

Decide today to take control of your health & fitness.  Believe in YOU!  Believe that you can achieve your goals!  Believe that you can have anything that you set your mind to!  And most of all YOU deserve to be fit, healthy & happy.  It really is a conscious choice.  Your mind is your greatest resource & power, your thoughts are literally life changing.  Embrace all that you are by creating positive self talk, exercising daily & eating clean - that means stay away from high sugar, sodium, high fat foods that will only raise the scale in the end... It's just not worth it... YOU have what it takes, we all do.  So get your goals written down, make a plan & then stick to it until you achieve success! 

Thanks for reading ~ Liv Fit. Train Hard. Liv Happy.

Jumpstart Your Metabolism


START YOUR DAY OFF RIGHT
by Jumpstarting Your Metaoblism

Eating breakfast is more than important for so many reasons. You'll not only feel better after a 8 hour fast but you'll also give your muscles the needed energy to develop, burn fat and supply your brain with the needed nutrients for clear mental health.

Studies have shown that starting your day off without breakfast can lead to over eating later in the day. The best way to start your day is with an all natural breakfast consisting of protein and a complex carbohydrate. My favorite meal of the day is my breakfast for many reasons. It not only tastes delicious but it’s my fuel to get me through my busy day.

Carol’s Favorite Oatmeal Breakfast

1/8 cup steal cut oats
1/8 cup whole oats
Small handful of whole wheat
½ cup water

Bring to a boil then put on medium heat and ad ½ cup Vanilla Almond Milk

Mix in 1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
1 tsp cinnamon
Pinch of nutmeg

Stir and enjoy!

Oatmeal has many health benefits, not only is it a low glycemic food which process slowly in the digestive track but it may oatmeal also help lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease. The soluble fiber in oatmeal slows down your digestive process, which gives you sustained fuel for energy and you'll feel full longer. Oatmeal combined with protein also can help you lose weight. New research suggests that eating oatmeal may reduce the risk for type 2 diabetes too.  Oatmeal is also a great comfort food and warms not only your inside but your emotions as well.

That’s just a few reasons to start your day off right to ensure your metabolism is on kicked in to turbo charge. And remember to eat every 3 to 4 hours through out the day to maintain a high metabolism to create the body of your dreams!

Until next time Liv Fit, Train Hard & Liv Happy!

CREATE YOUR DREAM PHYSIQUE



CREATE THE BODY OF YOUR DREAMS
"The higher your energy level, the more efficient your body. The more efficient your body, the better you feel and the more you will use your talent to produce outstanding results."  ~Anthony Robbins
 
"Learn to relax. Your body is precious, as it houses your mind and spirit. Inner peace begins with a relaxed body." ~Norman Vincent

"Look to your health; and if you have it, praise God and value it next to conscience; for health is the second blessing that we mortals are capable of, a blessing money can't buy." ~Izaak Walton

YOUR EMOTIONS ARE POWERFUL!

Your body and world around you reflects your true feelings. If you are unhappy with who you are your body will reflect that in many ways. Your way of living also is a dead give-a-way to your habitual feelings and emotions. Do you have a cluttered home or an organized clean home? How you live is a reflection of your subconscious thoughts and feelings.

Look within your heart to take the first step to transform your body and your life. Release limiting thoughts and beliefs and replace them with creative, powerful thoughts. Having powerful creative thoughts & emotions of love & kindness will radiate in your countenance. People will be more drawn to you and you'll have more self-confidence in all that you do. Having uplifting feelings will begin to change your life & physique in remarkable ways.

Today choose to be happy! Release negative emotions and focus on abundance in all areas of your life. Encircle your world with your loved-ones, choose to be filled with love and forgiveness. Cherish your spouse, cuddle with your children, walk your dog; take time to do something that brings you immense joy.

Embrace life to the fullest through love and appreciation for your beautiful body & for your family & close friends. You'll soon realize that your life & body are truly gifts from above…

As you transform your thoughts & emotions your physique will begin to transform with less effort in the gym and you'll also begin to crave healthier foods to fuel your body. It's highly rewarding in countless ways...

Until next time... Liv Fit, Train Hard & Liv Happy

BBQ DIET GUIDE


DIET SURVIVAL GUIDE FOR BBQ SEASON

It's hard to believe that summer is almost here. I love this time of year and I love everything about summer, the warmth of the sun, the sound of children playing outside and of course the many family and friend get-togethers ~ I seriously love it all!

With summertime comes fun, delicious BBQ’s which can mean unwanted weight gain as well… Here is a plan for diet success with tips on how to maintain a swimsuit ready physique while enjoying all of the wonderful backyard parties…

 PLAN FOR SUCCESS 

Be sure to plan your meals ahead of time so you won't gain weight at all his summer. In fact you can continue to lose fat and gain muscle by being prepared and focusing on your fitness and weight loss goals daily. By eating clean 85 percent of the time you'll be able to maintain a lean 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 the 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

Eating every 3 to 4 hours will help you maintain a high metabolism while building muscle along with fat burning for energy.  But eating the right foods you will have success... However if you don't eat the right combination of foods you won't see your desired results.  Here's a sample of a LivFit menu to help you better understand which foods you need to accomplish your fitness goals.

Breakfast: Make this the biggest meal of the day consisting of lean protein and complex carbohydrates. Example ~ 1 slice whole grain toast, 3 egg whites & 1 whole egg scrambled

Mid-Morning Snack: A whey protein shake with ½ cup frozen berries & light almond milk

Lunch: Grilled chicken sandwich, salad & veggies, (1 Tbs Omega oil on salad)

Late Afternoon Snack: A whey protein bar, veggies

Dinner: Salmon, ½ baked sweet potato, green beans with roasted slivered almonds

Be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day preferably 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 shake. cRave has 5 grams of fiber in each packet along with inulin which is a fat binder - gotta love that!

MAKE TIME FOR EXERCISE

Let’s face it, you will probably eat more calories at barbeques than you typically do. So you must counterbalance that with daily exercise.

Make time to workout, wake up and exercise first thing in the morning. 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 all of your family get-together’s 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 body that you can be proud of.

YOU CAN DO IT!
This summer plan for success, imagine yourself fit and thin and then follow through with a successful diet and exercise plan. Plan your meals in advance. And before any social gatherings imagine what you’re going to eat and if you’re finished eating imagine saying, "No thank you, I'm not hungry." When offered another yummy dessert.

By following these survival tips & tricks you'll be physically and mentally prepared to accomplish your fitness goals while enjoying the festivities of summertime with you loved ones and friends! =)

Until next time Liv Fit, Train Hard & Liv Happy

TIP OF THE DAY.... CLEAN DIETING


GET RIPPED BEFORE SUMMER!

* TIP OF THE DAY *

Diet is 85% of Fitness Success

How many people do you know that go to the gym everyday but never change? It’s because their diet does not support their fitness goals. I can’t stress enough about the importance of proper nutrition. It’s imperative to eat small clean wholesome meals every 3 to 4 hours. Eating the right fuel is 85% of the equation. You can do sit-ups and push ups all day long but you won’t be able to uncover those sexy abs until you burn the fat that’s covering them, and that comes from proper nutrition along with regular daily exercise.

If you want to be ripped before summer then commit today to working out at least 5 days a week - no excuses.  Then eat clean whole foods -  that means stay away from canned, boxed or processed foods of any kind.  Be sure to drink plenty of water, at least 60 to 80 oz and eat protein with every meal & snack.  And have your last meal of the day by 7 pm - after that consider the kitchen closed!
 
Set attainable goals, believe in yourself, stay true to your commitment to fitness, follow through, focus on loving you each day and before you know it you'll begin to see your body & life transform in miraculous ways!
 
Until next time... Liv Fit, Train Hard & Liv Happy!

A LETTER TO MY FRIEND...

A LETTER TO MY FRIEND


THE GIFT OF GRATITUDE

The other day my dear friend emailed me asking for advice, she was feeling a bit low and was in need of a little TLC on how to get out of the emotional rut she was in... I gladly shared with her how to shift from a sad mood to a happy, joyful state of being.

Whenever you feel overwhelmed, depressed or feel any negative emotion for that matter life can seem more difficult and frustrating. You’ll have less energy and you’ll be more fatigued than usual. By choosing to live in an Attitude of Gratitude you can literally shift your energy level from being pessimistic to optimistic. Doing so you will shift your energy frequency to a higher empowering level which in turn you’ll feel better and have tons more energy to get you through your busy day. You’ll also eat healthier, you’ll have the desire to exercise more and you’ll be much more fun to be around.

BELIEVE IN YOUR DREAMS

To achieve any goal & dream you must believe in YOU & allow love, joy & abundance to flow to you freely!

I recently adopted the horse of my dreams, a magnificent Friesian! Alexander The Great aka Xander. Before I found him I visualized daily and gave thanks to Heavenly Father for allowing me to have my dream horse. I was passionate about finding him and felt love and gratitude in my heart throughout the day for all the many gifts& blessings in my life. And before I knew it a miraculous journey unfolded and I'm proud to say that my sweet boy came into my life much easier and sooner than I had anticipated.

I know without a doubt that he was meant to be mine! But had I doubted and gave into the negative self-talk he would not be in my back yard right now. Not only did my dream come true but best of all I made a new best friend, Nancy. She's an eternal friend and an absolute angel. Because I stayed focused on being positive and having an Attitude of Gratitude my dreams literally came true.

You too can have your dreams come true! We all want to live an abundant life in all areas including health, wealth & true happiness. Here is my reply to my friend coaching her on how to shift her negative emotions to joyful, life-loving emotions.  She soon after sent me a loving email of thankfulness expressing how much doing these simple acts of Gratitide helped her tons.

If you’re feeling down or  would like to create your dreams more easily you can do these simple acts of Gratitude to transform your life starting today! 

Remember, the more you are Grateful the more you will have to be Grateful for! =)

A LETTER TO MY FRIEND....

Hey sweetie,


Bless your heart, I understand your feelings… it’s easy to get down and discouraged when you’ve been through a lot emotionally and with your family’s unfortunate news that just compounds the “blues” feelings.


To give you a happy boost each day try these simple steps of gratitude…


Before you get out of bed think about all the gifts in your life and then Thank Heavenly Father over and over for all the blessings in your life and then kneel for your morning prayer. And then throughout the day focus on all the glorious things in the world including your beautiful body and family. Then again at night go to bed with gratitude and give thanks for all the beautiful blessings that you enjoyed that day.


Also, be sure to get adequate sleep. A well rested body is less likely to get depressed as easily, that means early to bed... Be sure to give yourself plenty of time between firesides to rest and renew, especially with your precious family. And then as always try to eat healthy whole foods, it will give your body the nutrients it needs to ensure you have the energy your busy schedule requires.


Doing these simple acts of gratitude will help you get out of a rut and it will help you open your spirit more to receiving more joyful experiences. Embrace life with an Attitude of Gratitude and life will embrace you in all areas in return.


Have thankfulness for yourself in every way and feel the feelings of joy & happiness to create the life of your dreams…


Big hugs,



Carol
