How To Lose 10 lbs in Two Weeks....

Just kidding but hopefully I got your attention?

How many times do you pick up the fitness magazine in the grocery checkout line because it promises to give you the secret to losing 10 lbs in two weeks on the cover?  Who doesn't want to do that? It's always the same info, just different pictures.  Blah, blah, blah... 

How many times have you lost the same 10 lbs?


We all know to lose weight we have to eat healthy,
exercise right? 


There is another key part of getting
in shape and losing weight that I find cruical to the process!
Wanna Know what?  Support!  Being accountable to someone else!  


I realize this is an interior design blog about living authentically, but living authentically isn't just about your home, it is about your life.  It all starts with you!  If you are happy with yourself, it radiates to other areas of your life.   You can surround yourself with beautiful things, but if you aren't happy with yourself the rest doesn't matter.  Bottom line, things don't make you happy, people make people happy.   Saturdays here on the blog are going to be about how to get healthy and be happy!

  1. Will follow your progress...Good Luck and have fun!

  2. I'm on board!!! I just started drinking green smoothies to replace either breakfast or lunch, walk for at least thirty minute(actually my golden retriever drags me-- he needs puppy school!) and close the kitchen after dinner - usually around 7:30. I drink water with some ginger slices in it and try to get in 3 cups of green tea. Look forward to updates.

  3. I am doing a Isagenix cleanse, It works really well and is easy. This will be my 3rd time. Love Isagenix. Best of luck to all of us who wish to drop 10 pounds. And inches.
