Favorite Products: Propel Zero

Most of you have heard me in the past say how much I LOVE Vitamin Water Zero and I do, but I may have found a new favorite. Propel Zero has just come out and this has NO SUGAR. Vitamin Water Zero has 4 grams of sugar total.

Now both are good products, but having no sugar in a product is an added plus for me. Try Propel Zero, my favorite so far is Berry. YUM! It's a great new product to try with summer officially here and a new way to keep hydrated.

My favorite treats so I don't have to cheat

I've been asked how I stay healthy and keep on track with eating right. I've also been asked how I don't give in to temptation. I AM human and I do give in to temptation, but only once a week and in moderation.

I try to find alternatives to kill my sweet tooth when I'm in desperate need. Here's one of my favorites that's great for a snack especially during summer.

Try fresh rasberries with a packet of stevia or splenda (your choice) sprinkled over the top. It gives it that extra sweet taste and you can have a bit of an indulgence without feeling like you need to hit the gym for an extra 10 minutes.

Rasberries are one of my favorite fruits during the summer. Give it a go. :)

No is just one more chance for YES

There is so much rejection in this world on a daily basis. We don't always think about it because more often than not we can shrug it off and move on to something else.

Learning to be involved in an industry where there is constant rejection, I've come to understand how much rejection I've faced in the last two years, both in business and my personal life. I'll admit that I've gone through phases where I've gotten so frustrated I've wanted to quit and walk away. I wanted to slam the door shut and never look back, but no matter how many times I've wanted to forget about my dream I've never been able to fully shut the door.

I've had people in my life tell me to hold on a little longer. I needed to give my dream time to come together. I think the thing that has kept me going was sitting in college in my Entertainment Management class 2 years ago. One of the guest speakers said that if you really wanted something and to make your dreams in the entertainment business come true you can't take no for an answer. What stuck in my mind was when the speaker said "It only takes one yes to change your life."

Over this past week I have learned that hard work can pay off it just takes time. I have had people start to tell me "yes" for the first time since I started this journey 5 years ago and I'm looking forward to seeing what unfolds. So don't give up on your dreams. Keep fighting and don't take no for an answer.

"It only takes one yes to change your life."

Get Fit: Workout at HOME

Summer is just around the corner in a matter of weeks, are you ready?

If not no worries. Here are a couple of simple pieces of gym equipment that you can purchase for a total of around $50.

Most of the time I hate going to the gym. I don't always have the motivation to go to the gym after a long day at work or first thing in the morning. So my solution is bring the gym to me.

I use three pieces of equipment:
1) 2 10lb Weights
2) Stability Ball
3) Resistance Band

You can easily find workouts to do with these 3 pieces of equipment on youtube or researching workouts from Oxygen Magazine or Shape Magazine to name just two of my favorites.

I'll post some workouts that you can do with these later this week. Get ready for SUMMER! :)
