I love spending time with family! My kids are my world. But sometimes, it can be a stressful experience with our busy schedules sometimes leading to the lack of exercise, activities that disrupt our healthy eating, and the amount of sleep we’re getting when we are with them. This is why I call my family surprising saboteurs because it isn’t their intention to sabotage me, but life happens!
What are my tips to avoid getting completely derailed over the holiday season?
Wake up before the rest of the family and do a light workout, that way it’s out of the way and you can enjoy the rest of the day guilt-free. Every Monday I share a new 8- minute workout on my social channels that you can do all week long!
It is critical you are well rested! You’re not you when you’re tired. And when dealing with family members, we need to be as clear-headed as possible. Which is why Gravity Blanket is the perfect holiday gift to cure these problems. With products that fit everyone’s needs; like their patented weighted sleep mask, travel weighted blanket, Queen blanket, and different weights and colors to choose from! Gravity is the only brand of weighted blanket proven to improve sleep and reduce stress. In a recent SleepScore Labs study, 72 percent of people reported a better night’s sleep with Gravity. Best part of all, you’ll get 30% off when you use CRUISECONTROL on their site.
Check out one of my clients, The Real Housewives of New York’s Sonja Morgan, as she utilizes the Gravity mask! It helps at the end of workout and when she’s trying to get that extra sleep around the holiday season with all the events she has going on with family and friends.
Most of all, enjoy this holiday season, and your family and friends! Take some time to be thankful for the little things. What am I most thankful for? You, my community, my family, and my health.
When you consider the full scope of health and wellness and what leading a healthy lifestyle entails, you realize that it expands beyond your fitness routine and what you’re eating. Let’s talk about hygiene. I don’t mean your skincare routine or your shower habits. I want to talk about your butt. Let me ask you this? And I know, it’s kind of a weird question, but honestly, how clean is your butt right now?
I hate to break it to you but if you are using toilet paper, it probably isn’t that clean. Using dry toilet paper only smears bacteria rather than thoroughly cleansing. So what should you use instead? Wet wipes? No. Those cause anal fissures, small tears in the thin, moist tissue that lines the anus. Plus, they are terrible for the environment. So what is another option? I’m glad you asked.
Meet TUSHY, the modern bidet that attaches to any standard toilet in less than 10 minutes, and cleans your butt way better than toilet paper. Using dry toilet paper only smears bacteria rather than thoroughly cleansing. When you use toilet paper, you’re leaving a residue of stool and bacteria, whereas if you’re using a bidet, you’re washing the excrement away.
Toilet paper can cause the spread of disease-causing bacteria that cause UTIs among other things. It also irritates and perpetuates hemorrhoids in people who suffer from them. And I already mentioned those anal fissures caused by wet wipes, which strip the natural oils from the skin around your anus leaving it dry and prone to irritation. All of these issues can be avoided with the use of a bidet.
The TUSHY bidets provide a stream of water that is powerful enough to wash away your “healthiest” bowel movements but still gentle enough to leave you feeling refreshed. With TUSHY bidet you can adjust the pressure to your liking based on what you need.
The health benefits of switching to a bidet are exponential. There are literally no downsides. It just makes sense. When you try it, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it. So make the switch to TUSHY, like I did. Stop wiping and start washing!
So many of the celebrity clients that I work with are aware that corn syrup does break the fast because it’s high in sugar and people don’t realize that it’s also very inflammatory and processed, even more so than real sugar.
I’ve talked about corn syrup in many of my past books. It is so refined that it truly is one of the highest sources of contributors to belly fat and can be found in fruit drinks, sodas, and many other snacks.
The ultimate fasting swap for corn syrup is a plant-based sweetener. There are many types but my favorite is SweetLeaf that’s made with stevia.
Unlike many other stevia-based products, this is not bitter, it tastes just like sugar, and is delicious. Click here to learn more about stevia at our next meeting!

Mental health is so important and is something that I make a priority with all of my clients. I believe when your body feels good, so does your mind. There are four things I recommend, exercise, a good diet, good sleep and taking time to do something you enjoy.
For exercise, it just takes 8 minutes every morning. Every Monday I share a new 8- minute workout on my social channels and continue to provide those who don’t have time to workout a simple way to get fit and feel great at home.
For good sleep, I recommend a Gravity Blanket. I swear by this weighted blanket. Gravity is the only brand of weighted blanket proven to improve sleep and reduce stress. In a recent SleepScore Labs study, 72 percent of people reported a better night’s sleep with Gravity. Best part of all, you’ll get 30% off when you use CRUISECONTROL on their site.
Taking time to do something you enjoy is a type of self-care. I love spending quality time with my kids. It doesn’t have to be something extravagant as long as you’re relaxing and enjoying. This can be going to the beach, walking your dog, or going to get your nails done.
Probably the greatest cutting edge technology I’ve discovered to reduce inflammation is called PEMF, or pulsed electromagnetic field. It’s a way to get your body energized with soothing pulsed electromagnetic fields
My favorite one to use is from Pulse Centers. Their systems apply focused pulsing magnetic stimulation directly into the body through our versatile range of accessories. The pulsing magnetic fields thoroughly stimulate every area of the body. The result? People who use our systems have experienced significantly improved health and wellbeing with noticeable improvement and results on the very first visit.
This tech is absolutely incredible for reducing inflammation for professional athletes, clients of mine such as Anthony Robbins, and is cutting edge that is available in so many recovery centers.
Some of the other benefits of using this system are:
-Long term pain relief
