New Year’s Workshop Was a Success!

MewiththeWomenWorkshop

On January 30th I hosted a New Year’s workshop at One Roof in Venice Beach. I am so pleased to share that the workshop was a success! I wanted to provide women with the time and space that they needed to relax, reflect, set an intention for the way that they want to live their lives, and come up with a plan to reach each and every one of their goals.

We spent the day talking about what we want our lives to look like and we tapped into our heart’s deepest desires. We wrote in our journals, created plans for our goals, made vision boards to help our dreams become a reality, meditated, ate delicious plant-based foods, and took part in an interactive talk that I lead. It was incredibly touching to see so many women come together, open up about their fears and desires, bond, support one another, and know that they are not alone in their joys and frustrations.

I am excited to share that I will definitely be putting together more workshops in the future, so please stay tuned!

It turned out to be a nice morning/afternoon, so we decided to sit outside. Here are the women creating vision boards.

JoAnnandMonicaVisionBoards

Like the retreat that I hosted in October, we ended up having lots of mother/daughter duos at the workshop! Here are JoAnn and Monica, sharing their vision boards. JoAnn is working on finding balance in her life and making more time for herself. Monica recently got married – congratulations, Monica! She and her husband Ted would like to start a family soon and they are thinking that Monica should try to get pregnant by the end of the year. Because of this, Monica wants to eat healthier and stay active so she can be in the best shape of her life when she gets pregnant and so that she can also pass on good eating/living habits to her future child(ren). I can’t wait to learn more, Monica!

LynneAnneVisionBoard

Lynne-Anne created a great vision board that covers the four main aspects of her life. In each corner of her vision board are the letters “LOVE” because everything she does is surrounded by love. I love this, Lynne-Anne!

LynneAnneRuthVisionBoards

Here is Lynne-Anne with her mom, Ruth. Ruth is retired and wanting to enjoy her life and play more. She has an adorable cat that cuddles with her, so you’ll notice the two kitties on her vision board :).

GwennaVisionBoard

Gwenna created four vision boards! She’d like to do things fully so she is working on giving everything that she does 100% of her effort. She wants to see things through to the end. She is also working on getting fit and eating healthily. I can’t wait for updates on your health journey, Gwenna!

ElizabethVisionBoard

Elizabeth created two vision boards :).

NicoleVisionBoard

Nicole has been wanting to go on a cruise to Alaska with her husband so you’ll notice that she has a picture of a cruise on the top left corner of her vision board. She also wants to be authentic; she has a top-level position at her company where she is not only the youngest employee, but she’s also the only woman and the only minority. Though she is required to dress professionally and “be polished” at work, with her hair straightened, she sees her true self as rocking an afro, smiling, and wearing a dashiki, which she does on weekends :).

VirginiaVisionBoard

You may have noticed Virginia from my last retreat – I love Virginia! She has such a warm, fun energy and she’s always open to attending these workshops and tapping into her true self. As a mom, daughter, and teacher, she is working on saying “no” more often so that she can say “yes” to herself. It’s taking some time, but I am so proud of her for finally prioritizing self-care!

PamVisionBoard

Pam is retired and loving life! She is traveling and taking the time to enjoy herself and her family. There may be something else that she wants to pursue in life, so with some encouragement from her daughter Nicole, we’ll see what life has in store for Pam!

Kick Your Sugar Habit Now!

SugarCleanse

I’ve seen lots of people posting pictures with their holiday/winter treats: gingerbread men/women, donuts, cookies, chocolate cake, hot cocoa, apple cider, brownies, carrot cake, truffles, and more. I know it’s okay to indulge in your favorite treat once in a while, but the holidays tend to be a time of the year when people overdo it on sweets. Since sugar is addictive, it’s easy to understand why many people rely on candy, chocolate, cookies, and other sweets to get through the day. But this will only get worse if you are one of those people who constantly reaches for sugary treats and you don’t take action and work to curb your sugar cravings now.

I’ve put together an easy to follow 10 Day Sugar Cleanse that will leave you feeling amazing and will help you kick your sugar habit once and for all. You will learn to enjoy sweets on occasion, instead of feeling like you’re addicted to sugar. You will no longer keep a bag of candy in your drawer or a box of cookies in your kitchen. You will kickstart your weight loss and before you know it, you’ll look and feel your best! Before we dive into the awesome details of the cleanse, here are some not-so-sweet facts about sugar:

  • According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Americans consume 156 pounds of sugar per person each year (yikes!)
  • Sugar contributes to obesity
  • According to the American Diabetes Association, “adults with diabetes have heart disease death rates 2 to 4 times higher than adults without diabetes, and the risk for stroke is 2 to 4 times higher among people with diabetes.”
  • Limiting sugar in intensive care units saves lives (wow!)
  • Sugar interferes with the absorption of calcium and magnesium – two important minerals for our health

Testimonial: “Before working with Christina, I was addicted to sugar, junk, and fast food. I ate processed chocolate every day, I had milkshakes frequently, and I was always cravings sweets. I was exhausted, overweight, and had restless sleep because I was also consuming several cups of coffee a day. My joints ached, I wasn’t exercising, and I was depressed. After working with Christina, I started eating more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains and I lost weight, limited my coffee consumption to just one cup a day, lowered my cholesterol, and now that I sleep better at night, I have tons of energy. I no longer eat fast food and I’ve embraced whole foods and prepare most of my meals at home. I walk, bike, and spend more time outdoors, which has made me much happier and given me more energy. I recommend her as a Health Coach to everyone who wants to heal, lose weight, and finally feel great. She is wonderful.” – A. K.
