March 1, 2017 // 0 Comments

I have been more intentional and dedicated to living a healthier lifestyle. I have learned in the few months of eating healthy that all things count.  Eating healthy all day and then eating 4 bag of chips on top of it can really ruin a diet or weight lost plan.  I also understand the craving of wanting to snack on something too. Because in a way, snacking can be a habit.  But fear not! You do not have to give up your snacking habits; you can just chose healthy snacks Here are my top five healthy alternative to chips.

How I Lost 6 Pounds In One Week With No Exercise

January 24, 2017 // 2 Comments

I mentioned before in a previous blog that I am on a journey to weight lost since I have gained so much weight in the past two years. To kick off my weight lost I started with getting smart lipo (see my blog here for more on that).  But I am also not naïve enough to think that having plastic surgery is the end all to my weight lost journey.  I really need to learn to live a healthy lifestyle unless I want to just keep getting lipo (I don’t). And this was straight eating habits.  I did not exercise.  I know I should, but I didn’t.  But more importantly I think this shows how [...]

I Got Plastic Surgery. My SmartLipo Experience. Before and After Results 1 Week Post Surgery.

December 13, 2016 // 8 Comments

Yes I had cosmetic sugary. To be honest I never thought I would be the one to get anything done to myself.  But in the last two years I gained over 60 pounds and it seemed like there was nothing I could to about it. I went on diets, cut out caffeine, junk food, went on fast, diet pills, and ate fewer calories; but there was nothing that I could do to shed the weight.  And so I considered something called SmartLipo. Before going into my experience I want to say that before going into SmartLipo I wanted to be realistic about my expectations. I knew that having this procedure meant that I had [...]

Other people’s Issues, Can Rub Off On You & Cause You to Develop Your Own Insecurities.

August 2, 2016 // 1 Comment

What I thought was my biggest strength was really my biggest weakness. I have trust issues.  I do not trust anyone because I do not want to appear vulnerable.  I do not trust anyone, to the point that I think it can air on the side of paranoia. Whenever we have an issue of trust, jealousy, or any type of negative emotion we must reflect on where it comes from. Because it stems from somewhere.  As for me, it has always been the people I cared that ended up hurting me the most.  I have had friends and been in relationships with people that I poured my heart out to, only to have them use my [...]

Spiritual Fasting 101. How To Fast, When To Fast, and Why To Fast.

July 20, 2016 // 9 Comments

Spiritual fasting is done for many reasons. One reason is to control your flesh  As a Christian having control over your flesh is important.  If you do not have control over your flesh, then your flesh will control you and lead you into making bad decisions. It is the desire of the flesh that teaches us to sleep with a man too soon, the flesh that teaches us to steal money because we wants more, and it is the flesh that leads us to cheat on our spouses.  The temptation of the world is never going to go away, but we can control weather we feed into the temptations or not by learning mind [...]
