The Journey for a Healthier and More Active Lifestyle

Health and Wellness

If you’re like me, right now, you’re starting off the New Year with the resolution that has been #1 on everyone’s agenda and that is to lose weight and stay active.  So, over the course of 2013, I have decided to do some restructuring of my life and get a handle on how to keep myself size active.  When I say size active, I mean a size where I am at my most comfortable and where I’m feeling good about myself.  Striving to look like a supermodel or six-pack abs is not necessary, but if it does happen, then I’m all for it.

2012 started off with me becoming a dance workout instructor.  I teach a workout called LATIN JAM WORKOUT.

Latin Jam Workout

It’s a mix of Latin-infused music with cardio and it’s at a higher impact than ZUMBA where it’s easy to follow all the while having fun.  I teach in now FOUR locations in Los Angeles all the while keeping my normal day job and doing a side gig as an independent consultant for my upcoming business (which I will incorporate in this blog as it does deal with health and wellness).

One of the things that I HIGHLY stress before doing any kind of workout regime, body cleanses or dieting is that you consult your physician.  I can’t stress that enough because the one thing you want to do is once you lose the weight or alter your lifestyle, you want it to easily be a part of your life and not just a constant yo-yo struggle.  Your physician is your key and if he/she tells you what you need to do to be healthy, by all means:  LISTEN!  Your life could depend on it.  Ask all the major questions you need to ask including all of the products that you have on your product list that you are interested in trying.  Once they give you the okay, then start mapping out your blueprint.

Now that I have settled down and back from my whirlwind trip to India for a friend’s wedding, I have been mapping out my blueprint.  It’s amazing what one can do while lying in bed recovering from jet lag and insomnia.  The ideas start to flow.  This past December, I recently became an independent consultant for a health and wellness company called Arbonne.

Arbonne International

This company has been around for 30+ years now and I’ve done quite the research on their products as they stress that they are non-toxic, vegan and all natural.  Let’s just say (long story short), the products are actually wonderful.  They have a little bit of everything for your face, body, cleanses, vitamins, makeup and so much more.  Those of you know that when I feel passionate about something, chances are it’s the real thing.  I even had a friend try their face products for three days and she even fell in love with their products and this is coming from a person who uses all natural items like oatmeal, avocado and mayonnaise as her beauty items.  So, in my quest to get healthy, I’m going to combine the health and wellness products of Arbonne into my regular schedule and document my journey.  If you are ever interested in any of the products on the website, feel free to hit me up and I’ll give you the 411.

This year will mark a milestone for me.  My 40th.  So, I plan on getting a lot done in 2013.  Traveling overseas was the start and now getting healthy and active is the other.  Will you join me on the quest for a healthier and more active lifestyle?
