Do you have a desire to lose weight simply and quickly? Are you constantly tired even though you get adequate sleep most nights? Do you suffer from brain fog or forget simple things that you ought not to forget? If your answer is yes, I can definitely relate to how you are feeling. Because that is exactly how I felt until I found Level and Thrive. The Thrive product line has completely changed my life and has helped me to feel better than I have in years! I absolutely love these Level Thrive products are here is why:

Simple 3-step System

You can start your Thrive 8-Week Experience with 3 simple steps:

  • Take 2 Premium Lifestyle capsules on an empty stomach first thing in the morning
  • Take Thrive Premium Lifestyle Ultra Micronized Protein Shake Mix 20 minutes later
  • Apply the Thrive Lifestyle DFT, Derma Fusion Technology to clean, dry skin.

That’s it! You’re done and set for the day! The simplicity of this system is one of the things which I found very appealing and the sheer simplicity of it made it a no-brainer for me to get started quickly. But the best thing about Thrive products are what they can do to help you feel your very best. The system offers all of the following and more:

  • Weight management support – If you want to take control of your weight, this is the system for you. Regardless of your fitness level, there is a Thrive product that can help you to achieve your weight loss goals. Whether you simply want to tone, or you want to drop several pounds, the system is designed to help you get to where you want to be quickly and simply! If you are looking to rev up your weight loss efforts, or go into overdrive, check out the latest DFT Duo!
  • Lean Muscle Support – Build lean, sexy muscles and get rid of excess fat from those hard to tone areas such as the hips, butt and stomach.
  • Immune Support – Help your body fight against diseases and external stressors. Experience optimal health by giving your body the support it needs to keep you functioning at your peak. If you are feeling excessively tired or lethargic, it may be because your immune system is weak and not able to defend your body as it should.

Thrive products are formulated to support enhanced absorption and enhanced digestive function so that your body gets the nutrients, vitamins and minerals from the food you eat daily.  The Lifestyle Shake also contains a probiotic and enzyme blend that balances the good bacteria in your body to optimal levels.

Total Life Changes (TLC) Launches in Jamaica!

TLC Total Life Changes launches in Jamaica
Total Life Changes (TLC) launch at the Wexford Court Hotel, Montego Bay, Jamaica

Last weekend I had the privilege of attending the launch of Total Life Changes (TLC) in Jamaica. Total Life Changes (TLC) is a network marketing company headquartered in the United States and also operating in Mexico, Columbia, El Salvador, Ecuador, Peru, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Curacao and Bolivia. Jamaica is their newest market. I attended the Montego Bay meeting and I was thoroughly impressed by the company and by the huge opportunity that has been made available to Jamaicans. I got to meet some of the top leaders in the business and to see firsthand what exactly makes this opportunity so huge and why I need to be a part of it.

The Total Life Changes (TLC) business launched officially in Jamaica on Saturday October 24th at the Wexford Court Hotel in Montego Bay. The evening was jam-packed with presentations about the business opportunity as well as the impressive line of products that the company offers.

TLC Iaso teaI was specially interested in learning about the company’s leading product, the IASO tea. This is a refreshing tea that promises to help you to lose 5 pounds within 5 days! I was blown away by some of the testimonies that were given by ordinary people who had not only dropped 5 lbs in 5 days but who have gone on to lose much more. This refreshing Iaso tea comes in the form of a teabag. Two IASO teabags are added to 4 cups of boiling water and allowed to sit for 8 to 24 hours. Water is then added to make it up to one gallon. It is then ready to serve as a refreshing drink. The Iaso tea should be kept refrigerated and the gallon should serve for a period of 5 days for one person.

At first, the taste was not immediately appealing to me. But I have gotten accustomed to the taste and must admit that it is a very refreshing drink.

Benefits of Iaso Tea by Total Life Changes (TLC)

I am not making any medical claims about the Iaso tea but besides being refreshing, the iaso tea also offers health benefits which include:

  1. Helps with Weight Loss
  2. Reduces stress
  3. Reduces the risk of cancer
  4. Helps to prevent cardiovascular diseases
  5. Fights aging and prevents wrinkling of the skin
  6.  Helps to prevent high blood pressure and obesity
  7. Reduces cholesterol levels
  8. Strengthens the immune system
  9. Reduces the risk of arthritis
  10. Strengthens the bones
  11. Reduces blood sugar levels

  16. Protects against food poisoning
  17. Prevents colds and flu
  18. Helps to fight against herpes
  19. Removes intestinal sludge from the body

Wow, that’s an impressive list! And these are benefits that you get just by drinking 2 cups of the iaso tea everyday!

The company also offers several other products. I know the men will be especially interested in the “Strike Up” which enhances the experience in the bedroom.

8 Weeks Challenge – Day 10

strong womanIt’s the beginning of a brand new week and I am looking forward to what lies ahead in this 8 week journey to a better me. Like I said I would, I switched my exercise routine to the mornings because that is when I am most alert and have the most energy. It wasn’t an easy switch however.

I set my alarm clock to alarm at 5 am instead of the regular 5:30 am so I would have enough time to get 30 minutes of exercise in after I complete my daily morning devotions. So, as planned the clock alarmed at 5 am. Of course, you know who hit the snooze button! I was not ready to get up yet. But my husband would not have it. He refused to allow me to get in a few extra minutes. He flipped on the lights and proceeded to throw off the sheets so that there was no way I could go back to sleep. Thanks D! Thanks to him, I got up and I proceeded with my workout as planned. I was happy that I went through with it because afterwards I felt energized and ready to take on the day. There’s nothing like a workout to get the blood pumping and the body moving.

So I chose to do Jillian Michael’s Ripped in 30 week 2.

I like Jillian’s workouts because they are tough and they make me sweat. If I’m not sweating I don’t feel like I’m accomplishing anything. And my blood type (O +) thrives on vigorous workouts. I enjoyed it.

Oh before I forget, I have to tell you about what happened to me yesterday, my designated rest day. So at the beginning of this challenge, I vowed to stay away from all dairy products and especially ice cream and cheese. So my fridge was cleared of any trace of dairy products. I was doing okay for the first half of the day until the afternoon when my neighbor came over with 4 full servings of ice cream for me and my husband and my 2 sons! What are the chances? Just when I was trying to avoid dairy, here it was right up in my face. My neighbor was celebrating his birthday and decided to share some ice cream with us. Well, I didn’t want him to feel like I was ungrateful so I accepted his gift. I took 3 small spoons of it and put the rest in the fridge. I was not about to blow the results that I got last week and I was not about to suffer with a headache for the rest of the night. My sons gladly ate the remaining amount of ice cream to ‘help me out’.

This occasion cemented in my mind the importance of being mentally prepared for unexpected circumstances in life. Things will not always go as planned and we have to resolve in our minds before hand that whatever happens, we will not be side tracked. Focus is so important in achieving our goals. From here on out, I’ll be putting on my blinders and moving in one direction….forward!

8 Weeks Challenge – Week 1 Results!

a thousand miles

Today marks the end of my first week on my Fit n Fabulous mission. At the end of this challenge I should be fitter, stronger, healthier, and more fabulous! So my results are in and I am feeling great. My efforts are paying off! So without further ado here is what I managed to accomplish in my first week. I will also post my starting measurements so you can see the progress that I have made so far in this journey.

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step – Lao Tzu

April 18th 2015                       April 25th 2015          Difference

Neck       12 3/4 inches               12 1/2 inches                  1/4 in

Shoulders 40 1/2 inches              38 3/4 inches                 1 3/4 in

Bust   35 inches                          35 inches                           –

Waist  32 inches                         31 3/4 inches                 1/4 in

Hips    37 1/2 inches                   36 3/4 inches                3/4 in

Thighs  21 1/2 inches                 19 1/2 inches                 2 in

Calves  12 1/2 inches                  11 3/4 inches                3/4 in

Biceps  10 inches                         9 3/4 inches                 1/4 in

Weight 133 lbs                             132 lbs                        1 lb.

The Verdict

Woohooo! I am feeling great about these results. All my efforts were definitely not in vain. So if my math is correct, I lost a total of 6 inches and I also lost 1 lb of body weight! Not bad for just a week of work without any supplements. Imagine what will happen when I start supplementing! Anyway, I feel great not only because I got good results but I am proud of myself for setting a goal and actually making progress towards it. Yes, I missed a day of exercise but I didn’t beat myself up over it. I realize that things will not always go as planned but as long as I get back on course, I will get closer and closer to my goals. I am also happy that I decided to document this journey and to announce the challenge to whoever would care to listen. This has given me just the motivation that I need to see this through. And there is a saying that “whatever gets measured gets done”. So that’s why I’m measuring each and every little thing. The numbers say it all. I didn’t get many people to journey with me on this challenge but that’s ok. Everything will happen in good time. In the meantime I am going to continue to do my thing, for me, for MY health, for MY well-being. Because at the end of the day this is something that nobody can do for me.

Looking back over the week, and going into week 2, there will be at least one change that I will be making. Going forward, I will be doing my workouts in the mornings instead of in the evenings. I am a morning person and that is when I have the most energy. It therefore makes more sense for me to do my exercise at that time. It will also give me energy for the day and will keep my body performing optimally throughout the day. Because I tend to feel tired at the end of the day, this could give me an excuse to skip the workout. I don’t want to give myself any excuses for not doing this. So I will be getting up at least 30 minutes earlier than I normally do so I can get it done and out of the way early.

I also have to organize myself better in terms of what I eat. I will have to make a greater effort to have healthy foods in stock in order to resist the temptation to eat whatever because that is what I have at hand. So I will be doing some meal planning with my husband’s help and I will be eating according to my blood type. More about that another time.

I hope I was able to inspire someone with these results. Please share your feedback with me in the comments below. Also, please feel free to subscribe to get daily updates straight to your inbox by clicking the follow button in the bottom right hand corner below. Until tomorrow, latah!
