How To Make All Natural Simple Homemade Bread One of the biggest myths in the weight loss/fitness industry (and one I even was convinced of when I started my journey) is that you have to eat Fat Free, No Carbs, Diet, Skim etc and basically substitute normal food with all this artificial “diet” food in order to have your goal body. The truth is when you substitute real whole foods like butter, avocados, whole wheat grains, whole eggs, cheese, the food manufacturers have to replace the natural ingredients with something not natural and your body just holds onto the unnatural part as a foreign substance

Often times with friends we talk about how we would love to look like an actress or cover model, and we often work hard to achieve a better body image to achieve this look.
This past week I was sitting at one of my favorite restaurants here in Tampa with two of my best friends having wine and talking about how grateful we are for life for our journey and being able to connect. We truly have been able to go through so many life experiences together as friends through the ups and downs and more importantly we have been there to see and support our individual ambitions and growth.

Ever had goals or dreams that you keep to yourself because you’re afraid if you told anyone else they may think you’re crazy or immediately shut you down giving you all the reasons why that will never work? What if that dream was even as big as winning 2 Olympic Gold Medals like Lindsay Tarpley in today’s ABS TV interview? We all have a purpose and a calling that will continue to pull on us and show up in our lives until we start to listen and start acting in the direction towards it. However, sometimes that dream can seem so random and completely different
