2016 RIS Holiday Wellness Challenge Winners

The tribe of amazing people in the Raw Is Sexy Private Members Community enjoy a wide variety of benefits, activities and challenges to keep them on track and motivated year round.  This past November, they participated in the Raw Is Sexy Holiday Wellness Challenge.

They posted daily in our private group, completed workouts, shared healthy plant based recipes and stayed on track through the entire holiday season (with the exception of the holiday itself of course, in which we all love to indulge a bit).

They dropped inches and pounds, got fitter and more confident and I couldn’t be more proud of our Community and these Raw Is Sexy ladies!!

Allie dropped 11 pounds and lost inches off of her waist, hips, arms and thighs! Olivia dropped multiple inches off her arms and hips, her abs are now showing through and she gained 3 lbs of MUSCLE. This is why taking measurements is critical! You can drop clothing size after clothing size, but because you’re building muscle, your weight might go up or stay the same. The scale never gives the full picture. It won’t tell you how much of your body weight is muscle. Always take measurements.  Always, always, always.

So so proud of you ladies!!

I hope that their accomplishments inspire YOU to commit to your health and wellness now and for LIFE! You CAN change your life. You can change your health. You can change your body. You just have to work for it, know you’re WORTH it, commit to the new healthy behaviors and STICK TO IT. I’m here to help you do it!

Do you have any health and wellness goals for 2017?

Write them down.  People who write down their goals are much more likely to achieve them than those who don’t.  Write them down and put them where you can see them each day.

What do you want to be true one month from now?

What do you want to be true three months from now?

Picture that very best version of yourself.  Throw away your doubts and fears.  Hold that very best version of you in your mind.  Believe it.  It’s real.  She’s you.  He’s you.  You can achieve it.

Here’s to an amazing year ahead and much more Raw Is Sexy coming your way!

Blueberry Breakfast

  Did you know one serving of blueberries contains almost 25% of your daily requirement of vitamin C? Vitamin C is necessary for growth and development of tissues and promotes wound healing. Blueberries are also high in manganese. Manganese helps the body process cholesterol and nutrients such as carbohydrates and protein. They’re also a good source of dietary fiber. We all know what fiber does. 🙂 Now eat those blueberries!

A smoothie bowl is a fun way to change up your traditional smoothie and make it feel more like a hearty meal. I like to make my smoothies a bit thicker for this. Ingredients: 2 frozen ripe bananas 1 cup of fresh blueberries 1 handful of spinach 1 scoop of my Sunwarrior vanilla protein powder 1 cup of filtered water Blend all ingredients together.  Add more water if you want the smoothie to be thinner.  If you add too much and it becomes too thin, just add 1/3 of an avocado and that will thicken it right up.  You can also

Pumpkin Spice Raw Balls

Such a simple recipe. These are my pumpkin spice raw balls. Ingredients: 15 medjool dates (remove pits) 1 cup to 1.5 cups of shredded organic coconut sea salt, cinnamon, clove, all spice (to taste) I use about 15 dates in the food processor, add a cup of shredded coconut, and then the spices and sea salt to taste. You want to pulse the mixture until it begins to stick together. Take out the “dough” and roll into balls! These are great to add some pumpkin spice into your Fall season, or any time of year!
