A box that reignites your soul

Hello beautiful souls! 
Today I am super excited to tell you about Hey Soul
They truly have boxed up inspiration and deliver it to your door. HeySoul launched in 2014, when two twenty-something working gals  were drained, unfulfilled, disconnected and desperate to reconnect to the heart & soul they checked at the door and forgot about each day before going to work. They began the search for meaning, self-discovery and a way to reconnect. 
They came up with themed boxes with ingredients for treating your soul! What an amazing idea!
I received a box from them to review and it was the most amazing experience to open. So I documented the process.
Every detail was thought out in this box that is designed to be a positive‬ disruption in your life. Curated with thoughtfulness and intention to bring you closer to this box's theme which is Purpose‬ 
When I first opened my box there was a lovely handmade card for me.
Even the envelope was a pleasure to open. They thought of every detail.
The front of the card reads:
Inside I was asked to find a quiet space and to turn off all technology and dive I to his ‪#‎selflove‬ experience. I did stop to take a couple shots so you could see the wrapping and amazing handmade card they sent me.
What did I find inside? 
A note describing what this box was about. I kept it and put it on my dream board.

-An amazing book written to help you find your purpose. 
The purpose of this book is to stir your creative juices and to inspire you to really get in touch with your dreams. This bold, distinctive book features only the number 5 on the cover. 5 signifies designing a 5-year plan detailing dreams, goals and aspirations. As you read and work through the pages of this book it will help you decide on the path you choose to take and how to organize your thoughts and how to create the plan to achieve your goals. 

What was next? 
- A pen to help you write your purpose
This poppin dry erase pen will be put to good use on my dream board. I happen to have a whiteboard that I use daily!

- a purpose key to help you unlock your gift.
It is from the giving keys and I absolutely am in love. Having a reminder to wear that it is all about my journey and what my purpose is.. is priceless!

It also included 
-flying wish papers to let your limits fly
- detailed notes on each item containing affirmations and instructions.


I truly felt inspired getting this box. I hope you check them out. Get your own box at www.heysoul.com

Make FIT and HEALTHY your new lifestyle

Are you ready to make that change? Are you ready to get REAL results REAL fast? My New You Summer Fix fitness group starts Monday, July 6th… just in time to kick into gear after holiday parties and indulgence on the 4th! These fitness groups are an amazing community of women (and sometimes men!) all working toward their health and fitness goals. My team of coaches and I will provide meal plans, shopping lists, useful nutritional knowledge and tips and motivation for staying on track in a busy life! It is REAL fitness, REAL nutrition, and REAL results.


People ask me all the time, what’s my secret, how do I stay in shape and looking (somewhat, lol) younger than my real age.…The awesome truth is, there is no secret. There’s nothing fancy to it. I just believe in a little exercise and developing healthy, sustainable eating habits. It is a lifestyle! And whatever I recommend to my friends is what I personally do because I know it works and I know it’s possible once you learn how to make those small changes. 



If you want it and you put in the effort, you will see and FEEL a change in just 21 days, three little weeks. Just 30 minutes a day of exercise, clean healthy eating 80 – 90% of the time (gotta have a cheat now and again) and one superfood shake a day. That’s all I do to stay in shape and full of energy. And that’s all my challengers do and they see incredible results: clothes fitting that haven’t fit in years, sugar cravings BUSTED, soda habits kicked, strength and energy increasing and pounds dropping. It’s a beautiful thing. What is even more exciting is the program that will help me TEACH you how to make this lifestyle change is on PROMOTION (BIG SALE!) until the end of June! You know the program with the little color coded portion containers and the 30 minute workouts? Yep, 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix Extreme is only $11 when you buy a bag of Shakeology. Um, hello? If you have been on the fence about trying this bestselling, most effective workout program, NOW is the time. It doesn’t go on sale like this more than a few times and year AND it’s officially bathing suit season, so what’s a better time than now?

If you want to join my team and I (we’ll be working it right along with you this July!) or you want more info, just comment below “I’M IN” and I’ll message you to get you started. You can also PM me, DM me or email me at momwhatsfordinner@yahoo.com

5 simple ways to jump start your health

Summer is here! 

Well, it is just around the corner any way... are you ready?

So many people talk all year long about how this year will be different. They will get their health in order, make the right choices, do the work, get healthy. Only to find themselves at the end of May a few pounds heavier than when they started. Why? It is an uphill battle. More than ever people are eating high processed, non-food items, because of the "low calorie" lie. The fact is our bodies do not know what to do with these ingredients and it leads to cravings, obesity, bloating, headaches, fibromyalgia, gluten-intolerance, depression and anxiety.... which leads to more eating and less body movement. We are losing the battle folks.

I believe if everyone has accountability, support, motivation, meal plans, and a whole lot of love, they can do it. I am seeing success all over the U.S. right now and I have a fire in my belly to PUSH hard to end this trend.

I wanted to share with you 5 simple steps to start you on your road to health:

1. Clean out the gunk I like to use the analogy of a car engine here. If you have been filling your engine with cheap crap, build up starts to happen. The engine eventually fails and well... you gotta start over. Our bodies are the same. You can try to do a messy cleanse on your own, or we have a 3 day one that I am on right now that is amazing. It clears you out and gets you ready for your fresh start. You get to eat on it too. It is $59 and I can't tell you how many times I have done it. Safe for once a month if needed.
Day one dinner on the 3 day refresh.

2
Avoid junk foods which make us lethargic and dull. It always always always starts with what you eat. It is 80% diet and 20% exercise that is going to get you to your goals. You are what you eat so don't be cheap, fake, or easy. 
3. Consume a healthy diet, such as vegetables, fruits, fish, nuts, good proteins. Don't forget to intake 8 glasses of liquid. Take your daily dose of dense nutrition (shakeology) Avoid refined and junk foods. The main source for poor health and sickness is improper healthy eating habits. Many people suffer from sickness like diabetes, cancer, obesity and etc because of this. Changing your bad diet will contribute a great difference within a short period and can improve your health benefits drastically.  If you need nutritional guidance I have a great program called the 21 day fix that breaks down this process into easy containers. Just email me!

4. Exercise 30 minutes 5 days a week. Exercising in the morning can leave you with a refreshed feeling throughout the day and can put you in a good mental health and it will be easier for you to think positively and generate a better appetite. I know you "hate exercise" i hear it daily. 30 minutes a day can change your life. I have so many programs that are FUN from hip hop dance style to hardcore weightlifing... all can be done in the comfort of your home. Just ask!

5. Realize that positive thinking is very essential in order to be healthy. Clear out your mind of all negative thoughts and fill it with positive ones. These positive thoughts can be extremely energizing and always lead to good things in life. You can get involved in practices such as meditation and yoga to get rid of the negativity and force yourself with positive thoughts. Watch "The Secret" and learn how YOU are creating your own future. 


Don't forget we have so many programs to help you along the way. We have love, support, accountability and motivation. Join #TeamNourish and feel the love. :) If you are ready to give it a go, I have a FREE 10 day sugar free group starting on Monday. Just drop me an email and I will add you!
Email me to get in, it's free! 
With only 2 days left in May, Here are last minute deals to grab before they end! If you are interested in saving TONS of money (Like getting your PiYo for just $10) then email me please! momwhatsfordinner@yahoo.com BEFORE May 1st so I can get you in on the sale!
My book: Nourish- The beginner's guide to eating healthy and staying fit is out! You can get it from Barnes and Noble or Amazon, but if you want it signed, please go towww.nourishtheworkshop.com and purchase yours. Purchasing it there also allows proceeds to go to my cause to end the trend of obesity. 
I want to take a moment to thank you all who have supported me on my healing these past 16 months. I am cancer free and happier than ever. I cannot thank you enough for all the love, support, thank you notes and kind words you have given to me. Much love and gratitude for you!

For those of you that have not read how shakeology has changed my life. Please read about it here My Shakeo Story

If you have any health, nutrition or fitness questions, please don't hesitate to contact me!

blessings,
Christi

My favorite multi-purpose legging


I am a pretty well rounded gal. I like the beach and the mountains. I love the water, and I love the sand. I love my yoga, and get high off a good cardio session. So what is a girl to do? My solution was Luna Jai. Their capri's are multi-functional. Suitable for the beach, the gym, the yoga studio, and suitable for the pool. 

What I love the most about these capri's is that I can go from a hardcore insanity max 30 workout to a vigorous vinyasa class without having to change. I have a lot of nice yoga pants, but if you are jumping up and down hardcore with Shaun T, they don't stay on. Gravity takes over and you are constantly pulling them up. Not with Luna Jai. I like that I don't have to think about anything but my workout when I am wearing them. 

My other favorite thing about Luna Jai is their bright colors and patterns. I love to express myself with color. Before my yoga days my Mom used to always say I wore black. Can't say that about me anymore! I love wearing them. The colors make me happy.

Best part? If you want them, you can get them %15 off with code: momwhatsfordinner at checkout.

I run many challenges hosted by Luna Jai check them out on Instagram @lunajaiathletic 

Yogi approved tank top

I recently was blessed with a package from Balini Sports. In my line of work, I get to try out a lot of fitness apparel, a wonderful perk. Some stand out more than others. Balini Sports stands out to me because I have had a big problem with finding a top and bra that will hold everything in while I am in the throws of my Vinyasa flow. I have found that sun salutations lead to apparel malfunction with even some of the top brands out there. I was so frustrated I went to lululemon to see if their price tag might reflect in some deep dark hidden secret on how to keep the girls strapped in after several chaturanga's. Alas, after spending over $100 I trotted to a yoga studio only to find I still had the same issue. 
SO... you can imagine my happiness when I wore my new Balini Sports Megan Yoga tank
Usually in this halfway lift, I am tucking things back where they go. Love the freedom this tank top gives me! 
I am now able to do a full class without having to adjust my top. SO WONDERFUL!!!

BaliniSports was founded on a mantra of freedom; the freedom to move without restrictions, the freedom to live a full life, free of anything holding you back.
Upside down is no longer a problem! The tank stays at my waist while holding in things that need to be kept away.

The bluesign® certification guarantees that Balini Sports products are made exclusively of a combination of components and processes that are harmless to human beings and the environment.

Balini’s friendship with INVISTA has allowed them to use technologically advanced fabrics that provide quick-drying comfort, softness, strength and style. That partnership has also allowed them to provide eco-friendly fibers to fabric mills that operate within an eco-friendly process, making every step of the manufacturing process environmentally friendly and bluesign® certified. 

The bluesign® certification guarantees that their products are made exclusively of a combination of components and processes that are harmless to human beings and the environment. In order to achieve this certification, their brand’s manufacturing process undergoes rigorous testing to comply with the standards set to reduce the textile industry’s impact on people and the environment. 
#BaliniSports doesn’t just use eco-conscious fibers; they pride themselves in having a complete manufacturing process that’s ecologically aware, operating in an effort to reduce our footprint.  How they source, how they recycle, how they treat the water, how they dye, even the dye they use is all part of a living a dream while loving the Earth.

As a consumer, you can feel good purchasing Balini Sports products knowing that you’re giving yourself and the world the best opportunity to thrive.

This yogi approves!!
