Easter Eating Tips You Can Use

Easter Eating Tips You Can Use

Spring is finally in full swing, and as the weather warms and the flowers bloom, Easter is fast approaching. While the day is filled with family togetherness, thankfulness, and egg hunts, those of us who are working to improve our health and wellness often have to deal with something else – figuring out how to eat healthy for the holiday.

Easter Eating Tips You Can Use

The obvious step here is to avoid all those chocolates and sugary candies, but I’ve noticed that there are plenty of other meals on the menu for Easter feasts that may not be as healthy as your body deserves. Because of this, I think it’s time to take a quick look at some of the best tips to help you get through this holiday. Here are some key points to remember.

Find alternatives wherever you can. Instead of traditional waffles and syrup for lunch, why not use a vegan friendly recipe like carrot cake waffles instead? Opt out of those sodium filled meats and focus on nuts or tofu as lean proteins, too. Swapping out some things can help dramatically.

Use shakes or smoothies to avoid the urge to munch on all the sweet treats that are so readily available.

Shop smart and avoid stocking your home with anything that you shouldn’t be indulging in. There are plenty of great Easter basket options for kids that don’t involve chocolate, and thus won’t bring chocolate into your home where it can tempt you.

The bottom line is simple – just keep focused on your goals and maintain a healthy nutrition plan. Eat smart and follow your plan and you’ll get through Easter feasts without any trouble and keep working towards your ultimate fitness goals.

Until next time, stay fit!

Eat This. Not That. Simple Swaps For Spring

Eat This. Not That. Simple Swaps For Spring

Today, we’re going to take it to the kitchen. While working out is one part of the equation, what you eat is important too. No, no. I’m not going to lecture you, I promise. I just want to help you make the right decisions to help you thrive.


What do you say? You with me?


Springtime brings plenty of natural beauty and even helps improve mood thanks to the return of warmer weather and longer days. And for those of us who are focused on eating healthy and feeling better, it’s also the time that makes it easier to keep up our nutrition plan since so many fresh fruits and veggies are coming into season.

Food swaps are perfect for improving the way you eat, and all it takes is just a bit of effort. The key to great swaps is to focus on fresh. Here are some ideas:

Matcha tea instead of latte – Coffee is a pick me up for millions, but many try to add sugar and other sweets to it. Instead, try out matcha. This type of green tea comes with plenty of caffeine to pick you up, but also brings lots of antioxidants to improve your health.

Fruit instead of sweets – Whether it’s cake or candy, sweets can sabotage a good nutrition plan. Spring brings lower prices and easier access to fruits, and using them instead of those sugary sweets is a better option.

Fresh greens instead of frozen – Frozen greens are often more convenient for us busy people. But during the spring, fresh greens are plentiful and affordable. Use them wherever you can to improve your nutritional intake and enjoy a better taste.

Scallions for onions – There’s nothing wrong with onions at all, but trying to replace them with scallions in a few recipes can help give you a lighter, more interesting flavor while providing allicin – an infection-fighting compound.

When you head to the grocery store or farmer’s market, just remember that there are plenty of great swaps out there worth considering.

For an even quicker meal on those busy days I use Isagenix which is especially great when traveling too. I never worry about getting the proper nutrients anymore with these scientifically backed products.

So on your busy days when cooking is not an option, don’t hang out at fast food joints – instead pack a punch (or a lunch) with Isagenix for a nutritious delicious meal. This does the trick for me!

I’ll be back in touch soon with more healthy ideas for a better you!

4 Ways To Empower Yourself

4 Ways To Empower Yourself

Remember I teased about something coming up?

Well now I’ve got more to tell you!

This is an exciting email for me and YOU because I have something that will literally get you up and moving.

It’s exciting! It’s mind-blowing. It’s totally me! 

Are you ready to find out? I know you are!

Well wait no longer…


It’s high time you join me on this journey…

It’s Time You Take Charge – Empower Yourself


For years, I’ve held firm to the belief that improving your life begins with making personal changes and finding your own inner strengths. Empowered people are stronger, more confident, and able to follow their path to reach their goals effectively.

But for some, finding the way to empower themselves isn’t always easy. That’s my message to you today. Here are 4 ways that you can empower yourself and find that inner strength that will help you reach your goals more effectively.

  • Eat Better – This one surprises people, but the fact is that when you modify your nutrition plan to be healthier, it can help you gain energy and even fight depression.
  • Remember Victories – Too many times, we dwell on defeats, setbacks, and the negative in our life. Instead, focus on the times when you succeeded. This helps you see your positives and find inner strength.
  • Live For You – This is a must. Instead of focusing on what others may think, learn to live for yourself. It’s your life, and you only have one. Follow your dreams and do what makes you happy, not what you think others want you to do.
  • Pamper Yourself – Meditation. Massage. A trip to the beach. Whatever it takes, give yourself the treatment that royalty would get. This helps recharge your mind and remind you of the good things in life.

These are private, internal steps you can take. Use them as a foundation for empowerment and then start moving towards creating a stronger, better life plan. You have the strength to do anything – you just have to find it.

Need help finding that empowerment?

Let me help you…IN PERSON!    Yes, I said in person.

What Are You Afraid Of?

What Are You Afraid Of?

It’s Wendy, your Fitness Mentor and Lifestyle Coach!

The last time I emailed you, I spoke to you about how I worked at becoming who I am today. Believe it or not, I too had a lot of doubt and self-judgement.  But I worked through it with the support and guidance of a mentor.  Now I’m paying it forward!

Your first step to getting STRONGER. is to…send FEAR to hell!  Yup!  FEAR is WHACK like CRACK and it will hold you BACK!

Don’t buy into it!  Just push thru it!

To help you push thru it… please accept the following gifts:

  • My video to help you:  Cast Away Fear & Judgement 
  • My message below on: Letting Go Of Fear 
  • My video guide to:       Looking Fit, Fierce & Fab

Letting Go Of Fear & Judgement

Let’s talk about improving your life in a way that is often overlooked. While many of us work towards reaching physical and mental fitness goals, the motivation is often driven not by something positive, but by something negative.

I’m talking about fear, and while it can be a key force in driving one towards making positive changes, at some point you need to let go of that fear and start to focus on the positives in your life. That’s what I did. And look at where I am today.

Doing so is important because it allows you to find inner peace and your inner strength, two things that will be vital in improving your success at reaching whatever goals you’ve set for yourself.

Often, when looking to make positive changes we do so because of things like fear of what others will think of them or fear of how we’ll be perceived. The big issue here is that when fear and dread of judgment from your peers occurs, it is often easy to lose motivation – one little setback can turn into a downward spiral of self-doubt and apathy. Believe me, I’ve been there!

But when you let go of that fear, you start to do things for yourself, not for someone else. You work to improve your life to better your physical and mental health, not to change the way someone might think of you. When we have this shift in thinking, it makes it easier to stay focused and that can give you the strength you need to achieve even greater things.

It’s not always easy to do, but taking the time to identify your fearsand then moving past them is something everyone should do. Find your inner strength and cast out those fears. It’s worth it.

Lotta Love,


My Sexy Valentine- a gift 4 You!

My Sexy Valentine- a gift 4 You!


It’s Wendy, your Fitness Mentor and Lifestyle Coach.

Can I share a secret with you? I wasn’t always this bold, audacious woman you experience today.

I know you’re thinking, “BUT WENDY — you’ve been on Dr. Oz and Dr. Oz hangs with Oprah and people who hang with Oprah are epic so, that makes YOU epic.”

Okay!! Okay!! You’re right. I’m pretty freakin’ epic but I didn’t always know it.

How about you? Do you know what you’re gifts are? The world is waiting for you to show up, show out and share them!

And if you aren’t feeling epic this February, let me help.

Just because you are my Valentine, my gift to you is this…

Love & Honor Yourself

Yes, February is here, and that means that Valentine’s Day is almost here. It’s a day that many people out there struggle with – the idea of having a special someone in your life means that for many, it becomes a primary focus. But over the years, I’ve found that one thing is much more important when it comes to this holiday – honoring yourself.

Sure, if you have a significant other out there, getting flowers or a romantic dinner is wonderful. But you’re more than just an object of affection, and this Valentine’s Day you should focus on honoring yourself whether you have a sweetheart or not.

Some ways to go about doing that include things like:

  • Treating yourself to a meal at a restaurant you’ve always wanted to try out. 
  • Experiencing something new – from slackline walking to a new biking trail and beyond
  • A relaxing day spent at the spa, getting a massage, or just relaxing at home with a book

The point here is obvious – give yourself some attention and do something special for yourself. And while you’re doing it, be sure that you continue to focus on reaching your health and fitness goals so you don’t end up stepping backwards on your journey.

Valentine’s Day is a day for love, but in the hustle and bustle over trying to find someone else to LOVE, never forget to begin by LOVING yourself.

I’ll be back in touch soon, but until then be sure to give yourself the attention and personal honor that you deserve.

Lotta Love,


Fun Workouts

Fun Workouts




It’s no secret that being physically active is incredibly important for your health and wellness. But for many, working out is hard to do just because it’s a chore. When something feels like a hassle, it’s hard to make time for it every day. That’s why finding fun workouts is very important.

Fun Workouts To Get You Up And Moving

This is why I’ve put together a quick list of some of my favorite workouts to help you get motivated to get up and moving every day.

•    Walking Tours – No matter where you live, there’s a good chance that you have plenty of local sights to check out. Set up walking tours to help you see your area in a new way. Whether it’s a hiking trail or a loop around part of the city, you’ll see some new spots while getting exercise in at the same time. 

•    Obstacle Races – If you’re really looking to challenge yourself, what about the obstacle races that are becoming popular around the world? Mud Runs and Warrior Dashes are two examples that let you climb walls, crawl through mud pits, and more. It’s a way to get more excitement in your workout. 

•    Play! – If you have kids, why not challenge them to a game of tag on the lawn? If you don’t have kids, why not play with your friends? It’s easier than you think and will help you get more exercise while having fun. 

Another thing to consider? Put a TV in front of your treadmill or stationary bike. You can watch a full TV show while working out, adding a layer of enjoyment to it that wasn’t there before. The bottom line is that it’s possible to have fun while staying active – you just have to take the right steps to do so.

Lotta Love,

Thank you for being a part of my world!

I hope you’ve had an amazing Holiday and a great year! If things didn’t go quite the way you wanted it to the good news is…You’ve been blessed with another chance to get it right!

Let’s step it up and make some changes together. Let’s create some cool new memories that we can be proud of! I’m not going to lie to you though. It’s going to be a scary ride. CHANGE IS scary on all levels. BUT…if we put our BIG girl panties on and brave the storm the rewards are great!

Dare to do something different this year! Dare to step outside of the box and take a risk. If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always got and I want more. Don’t you?

Life has purpose if you give it meaning and if you give it meaning you may in fact find your purpose here on planet earth. I found mine. You can too if you…

  • Create the magic you want to see in your life by rejecting the word “NO.”
  • Believe you are capable of achieving that dream in your head
  • Keep the faith and remember that faith without works is always dead.

Are you ready to take this ride with me into 2017?  I AM STOKED BABY!



Staying Youthful Longer

Staying Youthful Longer

We all want to stay young, but no matter what we do there’s no way to slow down time and turn back the clocks. However, while there are plenty of products out there that promise to keep you looking young, did you know that being youthful is much more than just having fewer wrinkles?

Staying Youthful Longer

Youth can be a mindset, and if you’re willing to shift your perspective then it’s possible to start enjoying a younger, more youthful life. Here are some tips:

• Try to stay positive. Youths have a more optimistic outlook. Always look on the bright side of situations – it can help you in numerous ways.

• Find what you love. Maybe it’s one hobby, and maybe it’s a dozen. No matter what it is, find what you love and do it. Being happy is important, and this single step can help in a significant way.

• Live in the moment. Sure, planning ahead is important. But as some people age, they spend more time worrying about their future or feeling melancholy for the past. Live in the present whenever possible. Learn from mistakes, plan for the future, but never let either of them dominate your days.

Youth can truly be a state of mind, and if you take the time to change the way you think about life and your place in it, you’ll start feeling younger before you know it!

Turn Down The Stress This Holiday Season

Turn Down The Stress This Holiday Season

As we all know, stress can be seriously dangerous for our mental and physical health. From increased risk of heart attack to depression, stress can play a major role in our wellbeing. And the holiday season can be the most stressful.

Turn Down The Stress This Holiday Season

While I know that it can be difficult to entirely eliminate stress, it is possible to reduce it to a more manageable level. Here are some tips worth remembering.

• Shop Early – Getting your holiday shopping done as soon as possible is a great way to avoid the stress that comes from last minute shopping and dealing with crowds.

• Go Online – Believe it or not, Black Friday has become more hype than anything else. You can get deals just as good online, without having to wait in the cold for stores to open. Shop smart and you’ll avoid stress significantly.

• Be With Friends – The holidays are about being with those you love. Spend time with friends and family instead of spending all of your time with those who don’t truly care about you. It will help your mental health in a big way.

• Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff – When something comes up, take a second to think about it before you let your emotions get the best of you. Is it really something that’s worth being stressed about and worrying with? If not, try to move past it quickly.

• Learn to Relax – Whether it’s meditation for a half hour a day or just relaxing with a good book, give yourself a few minutes each day to recharge the mind, body, and spirit. Relaxation can help de-stress you in a significant way.

These are just a few simple tips for keeping stress levels down this holiday season, but they’re sure to help make the holidays more enjoyable for you.

Are You Eating And Exercising Properly?

Are You Eating And Exercising Properly?

I hope you’re starting to realize your true potential and capture your physical and mental wellness goals. But while it should be common knowledge, I’m constantly surprised at just how many people don’t fully understand that eating a healthy diet and exercising properly are the two fundamentals to better health.


If you’re not convinced, it’s time to take a quick look at just why a good diet and exercise are the two most important lifestyle changes you need to focus your attention on today. Look at some of the reasons this is true:


• A healthy diet removes sugars and artificial preservatives from your diet. These can have a huge impact on everything from weight gain to blood pressure.

• Good nutritional plans with lots of leafy greens and fruits can provide a big boost to antioxidant levels. This can help fight the signs of aging, ward off free radical damage, and help improve your immune system.

• A healthy diet provides an increase in energy levels as well as improving mood. You’ll feel better physically and mentally.


• Regular exercise helps improve mood as well, by encouraging the brain to produce more of the hormones that regulate happiness.

• You’ll experience increased energy thanks to regular exercise as well. Staying active helps you keep moving throughout the day.

• Exercise fights against obesity, and also helps prevent numerous health problems ranging from cardiovascular disease to arthritis.

The bottom line is simple – staying active and eating a healthy diet both lay the foundation for a healthier, happier you. If you’re taking steps towards living better and feeling better, paying attention to your nutritional plan and your exercise regimen are the first things to look at.

Start here, and set realistic goals for yourself. From there, you’ll see results start gradually appearing. I’ll be in touch soon with more advice on improving your life, but for now be sure to pay attention to these two incredibly important things.

Tips For Feeling Sexy After 40

Tips For Feeling Sexy After 40

Like it or not, we live in a world where looks really can play a big role in our lives. And one of the most important things for anyone is to feel like they still ‘have it’, no matter what their age is. Feeling sexy after 40 can help you feel happier and more satisfied with yourself, give you the confidence you need, and much more.

tips for feeling sexy after 40

But how do you go about doing it? In a society that seems to worship youth, it may seem difficult. But as I’ve seen first-hand, the power and ability to really feel sexy no matter your age lies within yourself. Here are some tips that can help make it easier to do.

• Dress the Part – You don’t need to slide into a pair of daisy duke shorts or wear a top with a v-cut that goes down to your navel. Find clothes that compliment your looks without revealing too much. There’s more to being sexy than showing off all the skin you can.

• Play to your Strengths – Know what parts of your body really stand out as being the sexiest, and dress so that you play up those parts.

• Eat Right – Not only will eating a healthy diet help you feel better, but it can also provide antioxidants that reduce the signs of aging.

• Tone! – Exercise not only reduces the chance of developing various illnesses, but can help you look better too. The right workouts will tone abs, firm up buttocks, and help you feel more confident in the process.

• Be Yourself – Sexy goes beyond looks. Don’t forget your personality and to let it shine. From your sense of humor to your intelligence, be sure to embrace all of you. It will make a big difference.

Find your inner confidence and grab onto it. Doing so will help you feel sexy no matter your age!
