I know there are some of you who may get discouraged by "healthy eating," or some purchase items from the store because it says "only x amount of calories." You really need to look at those labels. How much sodium and sugar are in those items you are buying. Trust me, I use to just grab items off the shelf that claimed to be "healthy," and in actuality, they were really bad items to purchase. That's why we all live and learn.
Also, rule of thumb, never call it a diet, you're more likely to fail. You're changing your eating habits with making healthy eating choices and habits.
The first step I made to becoming healthy for my kids and my family was trying Herbalife to see if I liked it. I was of course hooked after my first shake. I had my doubts at first about doing Herbalife, but I was willing to try anything. I have had digestion problems since I was pregnant with my daughter and I was still getting sick from certain foods and I never knew when I would have a flare up. I was eating pretty healthy before trying Herbalife, but not until I started Herbalife that I saw a change in my body not only digestively, but physically too.
After just 3 weeks, I started seeing results and I couldn't believe my eyes. It wasn't just the healthy eating though. It was 20% fitness (thank you my Sactown FitClub Family), 80% Nutrition (thank you Herbalife, my amazing health coach Amber) and 100% mindset.
After my 4 week challenge with Sactown FitClub, I decided I wanted to be a health Coach as well because I wanted to give back to other what was given to me. I want others to have the energy and motivation I have. Here is my before and after picture of the 4 week challenge for those of you who want to see the results I showed in only 4 weeks.
Tonight after my amazing FitClub workout, I wanted to experiment with my protein shakes and make a little concoction. I'm a little OCD with calories, so I calculated the calories out for this recipe, it's 71 calories for a regular sized muffin and 24 calories for mini muffins.

This dish right here is truly one of my specialties. I love making this dish. If it’s for Jacks Birthday, Valentine’s Day, or just because we want something fancy. Usually I just do the Filet with shrimp or lobster and topped with holandaise and asparagus, but this Valentine’s Day I decided to elevate my recipe a little more and try something new and this is what I came up with. I hope you all enjoy and if you have someone special, try it! Steak Oscar for Two Ingredients: For the Steak: 2 Filet Mignon Steaks 1 tbs .

After years of cooking and sharing recipes, I have finally put together my blog site. Its been a long journey in cooking for friends and family. It wasn't until recently that I was given the confidence to actually create a blog and share everything I have learned and am still learning in the kitchen. I recently was given the opportunity to air on live tv with Good Day Sacramento. It was quite the experience. Friends and family told me I was a natural on tv, but what they didn't see on tv was how extremely nervous me. My mom and my husband were there calming me down. After each take, I would let out a big "Whew" and ask how I did. Apparently my nervousness did not show when the camera was rolling. Thank Goodness! I would like to share the recipe of my dish on Good Day Sacramento with all of you. Spaghetti Squash is that ingredient that we all seem to forget about. It's amazing and very good for you to eat. I think when people look at a spaghetti squash,
Motherhood. Where do I even begin. It is both beautiful, challenging and somehow completes every part of me. When I was a young child, I remember always picturing myself as a mommy when I grew up and I knew that I would be a great mommy and I wanted to be a best friend to my kids like my mom was to me. I never knew the challenges that came along with Motherhood. I never knew how much you would worry about these precious gifts from God that you brought into this world. A dear friend of mine is a new mommy to her second child and I have been chatting with her about her challenges she's been having and that has prompted me to write this post, because I'm hoping that, like some moms out there, I want you to know, that, yes, we go through this... so I want to share with you my story. I guess I should start with my birth stories.... Cause those are always fun... LOL With our first child, Nicholas, our birth plan, as with most, we wanted to of course go the natural way
