1 week and I’m a Skinny Coffee Babe for life!!!


Holy amazingness batman! I have been using Skinny Coffee for 6 days and let me tell you. I AM IN LOVE!!!! 😍😍😍 let me give you all of the details and I only speak the truth. 

First of all the taste is GREAT! I’m a would you like some coffee with that creamer type of gir usually but I drink this coffee black. And I actually enjoy it that way! It has a great flavor that isn’t overwhelming so you are ok even without the cream. I brew mine in a mini French press so that would be my recommended method for everyone. 

Now I know if you’ve dabbled in the weight loss teas like I have, some of them can have a terrible stomach ache effect. There is nothing like that from the coffee. All I felt was a great boost of energy in the morning and a very happy belly. Definitely something you have to be happy about! 

Now the picture above shows my progress after 6 days. ONLY 6 DAYS!!!!! That’s insanity!!! There was also 2 lbs of weight loss in the first 6 days. I feel so much better and this is only the beginning. I really can’t believe how awesome this product is working. I will definitely continue to use it and may or may not have just ordered 3 more months worth πŸ™Š

Check back after the full 28 day cycle to see the next update!!! 

Skinny Coffee? YES PLEASE!!!Β 

Ok guys. So how many weight loss teas have we seen on the market? Like a million right? Well I don’t know about you guys, but I’m a coffee drinker. Call it my Seattle blood but it just is my preferred beverage of choice to get myself going in the morning. 

Now I’ve tried some weight loss teas on the market before but this on really grabbed my attention because well, ITS COFFEE!!!! Skinny coffee is made from all organic ingredients and is quite affordable. It is made in the U.K. Though so if you’re ordering from America like myself, you will wait a little over a week to receive it. But don’t worry, it’s coming! And the shipping is free! 

I’ve started the 28 day trial as of this morning and I have to say the coffee tastes amazing! I prepared mine in a French press because of course. I am a bit of a snob sometimes when it comes to my coffee πŸ€—. I can also feel the difference in my energy level. I usually drink 2 to 3 cups of coffee every morning but it feels like I did that and I only had a single cup! We’re off to a good start on this one. The pic above is my starting point. I will review the difference after a week. Either way I’m excited to continue on this journey and really be a #SkinnyCoffeeBabe πŸ’œπŸ’“

Happiness is a choice…… Choose wisely!Β 

So it has been quite some time since I have posted anything. And in that time I have retreated to do even more soul searching for myself. Sometimes you just need to hide out a a little in your own space to figure out What your soul needs to heal. The main lesson that I feel like the universe has been trying to teach me is that your own happiness is a conscious choice you make every single day. 

Have you ever had one of those mornings where you wake up and the first thing you think to yourself is negative? I know personally I am a culprit of this all the time. And it affects how my entire day goes! Just one simple thought can change everything. Waking up on the wrong side of the bed is a real thing. And in the last couple of months I’ve made myself think one happy thing in the mornings. This small change has affected my life greatly. But in all the right ways. I challenge you to try it too. 

My other suggestion to you is to find some way to meditate. Now, this doesn’t mean you have to do it in the traditional sense of the word. Find some activity that allows you to zone out from the world for a few minutes and get lost in your own thoughts. I use running as my time to do this, but there are many different things that could work. Even just heading out to a coffee shop to people watch. We never get alone time anymore. Especially with how extremely connected our smart devices keep us these days. So that’s the main key to a successful get away session, leave your phone behind! This personal time to listen to your soul everyday makes you that much more in tune with what you need on a spiritual level and can make all the difference. 

The power Of thought is real. And it can’t be ignored. Training my brain to be happy and think positively is changing my life. I don’t allow my happiness to be determined by outside forces anymore. I don’t give people the power to control my happiness either. If you start to take a small amount of your time to focus truly on making these changes daily, you can begin to find your true happiness too. It is still a work in progress and I am certainly not perfect myself, but I felt I needed to share just what has been going on in my brain πŸ’œπŸ’“

Deja Vu

Do you ever have those moments where you are instantly teleported to a past time in your life? It can be triggered by any of the five senses. Something you see, touch, taste etc., then suddenly BAM! You’re back to feeling something oddly familiar. Well I just had one of those instances that happened to be triggered visually. It’s amazing how the internet works, and allows us to see things that we never would have otherwise…..

The part that is most fascinating to me is the stark contrast to my end feelings of the situation between now and then. I once would have reacted thinking there was something wrong with me, that I needed fixing. Too often we want to put ourselves down mentally, which really takes a toll. The worlds biggest critic really is ourselves. But sometimes it is unwarranted. Manipulated in a way………

Now I take a step back and I begin to smile. See, I realize that I am WORTHY. I realize that I am MORE. and I realize that I am a BEAUTIFUL person, inside and out. We all are. Every quirk, out of place, messy, angry, sad, happy thing about us is an amazing gift that we were given to let shine out and touch and inspire people….. 

The saddest thing is how many people are afraid to let their strangeness show; Are afraid that it will make them not be “good” enough, or that they won’t “fit in”. My intention of writing this is to encourage you to be 100% your true self. No one else can do it, and that is what makes existing so beautiful. Be proud of the things that make up you, the results can be incredibly surprising…… 
  

PMA

Those three letters. “Positive Mental Attitude.” Seems like it is something so easy to obtain. Yet here we are, grumpy and groggy heading to work or school, and keeping the positivity is so quickly lost. What is your automatic reaction if someone cuts you off while you are in a rush somewhere? Or if, God forbid, you drop your coffee immediately after purchase. Suddenly you feel your temperature rising and the anger ignites. Moments like these have the power to completely sour your mood for the remainder of the day, and when you really start to think about that, it’s fairly scary.
The expression “I woke up on the wrong side of the bed.” Is very real. But what starts to happen if we take a few moments to think positive and find the good in all situations? Yes you were cut off, but so much worse could have happened, and you are still going to get where you are headed regardless. And trust me when I say coffee is an essential to my day to day life, And when you finally get that first sip it is glorious. It really is a devastating feeling if you drop it and don’t get to enjoy the caffeine you went out of your way to stop and purchase that morning, But what happens if the clerk sees this happen and offers to make you a new drink free of charge? Or yes, it may not be the fancy new Macchiato on the block, but there is still a pot of hot coffee waiting for you once you get to where you are headed.
Life is tough. We face new struggles every single day and that is never going to change. It is part of the beauty of being alive. We have obstacles put in our way to make us stronger as human beings all around. It is how we behave when we face these challenges that makes all the difference. We are faced with a choice, To back down and let the problem win, ruin the rest of the day for us and cause us to check out and miss the beauty life has to offer. Or, we can choose to understand that these things will happen, there is a lesson to be learned in every situation, and to keep on smiling because that alone could change the course of another’s day for the better.

I’m still Pressing On

So I was listening to a Reliant K song I used to love back in the day and it definitely hit me right in the feels. It’s called “Pressing On” and is just about continuing to move forward, even when you’ve been through some terrible hardships. This week has been a bit of an extra tough one too. It’s like it comes in waves. Breakups hurt. And people start to find out the truth after its all over and that’s what is starting to happen to me now. I never thought I would be hurt as badly as I was by someone who claimed to love me and take care of me. 

The hardest lesson to learn for me has been that you can’t rely on anyone to help you but yourself. As much as I wanted to believe that this person had my back 100% of the way, it was the wrong way to think. And in the end was one of my biggest downfalls. I have a loving heart, which means I have the disadvantage of trusting everyone until they give me a reason not to anymore. However a relationship without trust is doomed from the beginning. Yet he was the one who wasn’t trusting. Maybe it was because he knew what HE was capable of, so he couldn’t accept that there was someone who would have given him the moon if she could. 

What matters more than anything else though is that IM STILL HERE.  I am moving forward every single day, and the pain is beginning to dull. I also get to experience what it’s like to love myself more than anyone else now. It’s something we all lose sight of, but it’s so important!!! I make myself say why I have value, and I never let myself think otherwise. So while something was meant to ruin me. At one point I was told to run away back home, but here I am. Here I stand, and I’m PRESSING ON. 

What I’ve learnedΒ 

It has definitely been a while since I have sat down to write a blog entry and my life has had some crazy things happen in the last month. Some of it really put me through some very challenging life tests but in the end I am so much stronger. Here is what I’ve learned……1. You can’t depend on anyone truly but yourself: probably the hardest lesson I had to learn. I had put a ton of faith into someone who was supposed to be my biggest support system. And that failed. Miserably. I felt like I was left face down on the ground with no one there to help me up. Thankfully though I do have true friends who were right there to help me get back on my feet and realize I don’t need anyone else in my life to depend on but myself 

2. Know who your real friends are: going along with having some really amazing people in my life there to support me, unfortunately there were some also who were never really my friends and didn’t have good intentions when it came to my well being. This is by far one of the toughest lessons to learn in life, no matter how many times it happens to you. All I can do is cherish the good times I did have, and know what to look for when choosing who I put my trust into the next time. 

3. Never change who you are for ANYONE!!: you are a beautiful and amazing person just the way you are. All of your quirks and nuisances are what make you unique and different from the norm. DONT SACRIFICE YOU TO MAKE SOMEONE ELSE HAPPY!!! I changed everything in hopes that I would be perfect for someone else. In turn I was miserable. I pushed people away, changed my habits, everything. But if you are asked to do that, you aren’t ever truly loved. And that person doesn’t deserve you because they are taking away from the sparkle that makes up the amazing human being that you are. 

Life has an amazing way of teaching you things just when you need to learn them. And I really do believe that everything happens for a reason. I am so much stronger than I have ever been and more than anything, for the first time in a long time, I AM HAPPY
If this message upsets you in any way when you read it that was not my intention. I’m just sharing what I’ve learned and some of the things I believe, so that hopefully my experiences can help someone else on their own journey someday. And maybe if you find yourself getting offended, you are the one who needs to take a look in the mirror………..
