{WEBINAR} 30-Days to a Healthier Happier Life

I want you to know that I’ve found the fountain of youth!

I know that’s a lofty claim, but let me start by saying I have never felt better in my life, never slept better in my life, never had more energy and never known such vitality, ever!  While I wasn’t looking for another job, another responsibility, or one more task on my list of things to do, these products found me and I have no choice but to tell you how they’ve changed my life.  It’s not a responsibility.  It’s an obligation..and a blessing. That’s why I’m so passionate about sharing it with you.


After recovering from pre-emphysema due to toxic mold exposure in our home that was once featured on MTV Cribs, I cured myself and my family with alternative remedies like vitamin IV, infrared sauna, and oxygen. What had happened to me affected me on a cellular level. Here’s an example:  When I was getting sicker and sicker, plagued with debilitating migraines and not sure why, there was a time when I thought I was having a heart attack.  It felt as thought an elephant was sitting on my chest!  My husband rushed me to the hospital, but doctors in the emergency room sent me home because they could not see any problems with my chest x-rays.  That’s only because they couldn’t detect what was happening to me on a cellular level. They’re only explanation was “sorry”.  It took many more months of headaches, fatigue and insomnia for me to determine that “sorry” wasn’t a good answer.  I deserved to be healthy!

You know when you feel good and when you feel bad.  Back then, I thought I was dying.  Now, I feel as though I’ve never had this much vitality in my life, and that I just have to share my secret!

After only one day of taking these products, I had a total body transformation from the inside out.  Perhaps even a spiritual awakening. Now, I’m a month into my journey and I cannot believe how amazing I feel.  I wish I would have had these products when I was teaching back-to-back 2-hour sessions at the International Zumba Fitness Conventions!  I would have been unstoppable!

As a healthy lifestyle expert, I feel compelled to share this information with you. If I have an abundance of energy and sleep better, maybe you can too! Oh, and the other side effect is I have zero food cravings all throughout the day! From the moment I got these super foods into my body, I started feeling as though I could conquer the world!

Join me tonight! I can’t wait to see you there.

4 Steps To Set Yourself Up For Success

set up for success

Here are 4 steps to set yourself up for success this week!

  1. Get rid of cookies, chips, sodas and any junk food in the house. If it’s there, it’s a temptation. Set yourself up for success by eliminating food triggers.
  1. Make exercise a habit.  Taking care of your health means putting yourself first…not after the kids, work and your spouse.  FIRST!  Now, I realize that’s super tough, especially with young children that constantly need you, deadlines at work, or household chores that cannot be put off any longer.  But when you have sick days – when you have a cold or flu – you are forced to take a break.  Schedule at least three times a week when you can focus on YOU and any type of exercise you can fit into your busy schedule, whether it’s walking, swimming, biking or taking a fitness class.  The more you exercise, the less sick days you have, the more you want to eat better and the healthier you’ll be! Getting your heart rate up releases “feel good” hormones in your body, so you’ll be happier too!  Set yourself up for success by scheduling a workout at least three times a week.

Sometimes It’s Best To Save Yourself




“Save yourself.”  That’s what a friend told me after we discussed a predicament involving a mutual acquaintance.

Sometimes it’s best not to get involved in situations we cannot control even though we may think we can be of assistance.  It’s difficult to allow others to make their own (bad) choices and allow them to figure out the predicament themselves, but occasionally we may need to.  Often, it’s best to back away, bite your tongue and save your sanity.

Stay Healthy And Have A Fabulous Summer!


Summer is here! That means picnics, pool time, parties, and lots of fun! But also potential sunburns, feeling overwhelmed, and weight gain from too much snacking and unhealthy food.

Here are some tips to help you stay healthy and have a fabulous fun-filled summer!

  1. Drink lots of water. You can set a reminder on your phone to notify you periodically throughout the day to drink water whether you need it or not. Sometimes we get so busy and we forget. I like to put lemon or cucumbers in my water for a refreshing twist. You can also have fruit like strawberries, apples, or watermelon.

Who Ultimately Wins An Argument?



I planned my attack.

In my mind I had it all mapped out: How exactly I would respond to the person who had said something hurtful and humiliating.

I knew what I was going to say. After all, I rehearsed it in my mind for hours. No, days.

We were at a gathering where a dozen or so people were laughing, telling stories and feeling elated about the camaraderie of old friends and new.  No one else knew that what this so-called friend had said in a joke brought up old wounds in me.

The offender knew.  I’m sure of it.  Although, I don’t think that they intentionally wanted to hurt my feelings.

Regardless, the words they said cut like daggers into my soul. It felt as though Mike Tyson punched me where I had already been black and blue.

So I waited.

And waited…for an apology that never came.

The Spiritual Vortex of Sedona



It is a place where roads are named Lizard Head, Broken Arrow Lane and Devil’s Pass. It’s not unusual in this stunning, mountainous region to see cars parked on roadsides for mountain bike riders (young or old) to get their groove on in the valiantly hilly topography of Sedona, Arizona. Through the red, rocky mountains, the stars seem closer than usual at night and the air is cool, crisp and fresh. It’s a place where the mountains are so high in the sky, you have to tilt your head back to see the peaks. It’s a place where peace and serenity abound. Where it seems as though God took a little extra time in painting the scenery. Continue Reading


The Lost Art of Connecting

shemane 5-6


Billions of people around the world are now in touch through social media, but are we really truly connected with one another? In a recent hot yoga class where the temperature was tipping one hundred degrees, the instructor asked us to hold hands with the people on either side of us to help us with a balance pose.  Sweat was pouring down from my head and my entire body, and it wasn’t exactly a moment I wanted to share with a total stranger.

How to Be Unstoppable


Think back to a time when you were a kid…when you didn’t look in the mirror, there was no social media, and when you were obsessed with playtime. When we were young and allowed our imaginations to soar, we were unstoppable. Over the holidays, I was playing with my grand-kids. Within moments after seeing them with plastic light sabers I asked, “Can I play?”  They all yelled an enthusiastic “yes!”.  Suddenly I was Princess Leia and we were running away from the Storm Troopers.  I didn’t ask questions, I followed their lead. We were in a make-believe world of our own, running and playing. We were unstoppable. We knew the ending because we invented the scenario. Of course, we won! Continue Reading

Spiritual Adventures, To Be Continued….


Ok, are you ready for some deep conversation? Recently, my husband and I had those difficult discussions about funeral arrangements and what kind of burial we’d like. Sounds gruesome, I know, but these are real, straightforward talks that need to happen. We’ve all had those thoughts about our own mortality: What if I died tomorrow… Have I done all that I wanted to do? What would I have done differently?

It caused me to reflect on my life and the changes that I have made in the past decades and the legacy I’d like to leave behind. I am definitely not the same person I was twenty or thirty years ago. The struggles and triumphs I’ve endured got me to the place where I am now. By no means, am I perfect. Rather, I am a student of life – constantly learning and soaking up information like a sponge. The older I get, the more time I want to spend grabbing onto knowledge as if it were an outstretched arm from a firefighter as my house was burning. I want to learn all that is humanly possible, while trying to get through an ordinary day of work, paying bills, household chores, taking care of pets and my family.

When I was a teenager, I went to a church with my mother and grandmother that was a nondenominational Christian church. While there were biblical quotes given in every Sunday talk, there was also discussion about a book called “A Course in Miracles”, which is a philosophical interpretation of the Bible.

Hang with me, this is deep talk.  Continue Reading

Lose Weight Without Even Trying


I struggled with weight loss all of my life. When I was teenager, I was 30 pounds heavier than I am now. I know what it’s like to wake up in the morning and feel ashamed that I couldn’t fit into my clothes. I wore baggy tops so no one could see that I squeezed myself into my jeans. In total, I’ve gained and lost over 100 pounds in my life. 10 pounds here, 20 pounds there… It’s been a real roller-coaster ride. Finally, I have it figured out!

Like many of you, I wanted to discover the combination to not only losing weight but feeling great, once and for all. Here’s the secret: Continue Reading
