The fall is here and although it doesn’t always feel like fall here in Southern California, I always seem to want to make foods and drinks that remind me of the season. What about you?

Today I’d like to share a smoothie recipe with you. I love & use the Arbonne protein mix because it’s Vegan, Gluten free, it blends well and its easy on my tummy.

Go ahead, try this recipe with your favorite protein mix.

I remember dreading Monday’s…ugh!!! That’s seriously NO fun & I knew I couldn’t be doing that forever..My thoughts were always, “This is going to kill me” or “There’s got to be another way” the best one is “This CAN’T be it” LOL
OMG, I know I’m NOT alone on this one. Can anyone relate, come on, can be honest..
If that’s you too, my recommendation is to work on a plan B because if nothing changes, nothing changes.. you’ll just keep going in circles… Don’t do it..
You my friend, have options..If you start NOW….
Start asking the questions, Clean the len, Start looking at life with wonder and what if’s….
clear
We’re living in the 21st century!! in a digital world where flexibility, creativity, networking Social media & opportunity is all around us… anythings possible. People are open and looking for other opportunities too.. You’re not alone..
I am forever thankful I said yes to something I knew nothing about. That I said YES to something that scared me because today, I am living, I am learning, free & happy, my family is happy, I have purpose, and I have the ability to help others do the same…
I am not perfect by any means but when I fall, I make sure I land on my back because if I can look up, I can get up!!  Love Les Brown 🙂  What a blessing..
I’m not saying it’s easy either.  What I’m saying is, you have one life. If nothing changes, nothing changes.  You have choices and YOU are worth it.
Be brave to start over
I am that constant LIGHT to help other see when sometimes its not so clear and hope is dim..
Cheers to Good health and well being!!

A little of this and a little of that in 2012

Posted in Update with tags , , , on November 8, 2012 by Your SkinChick

Hey there!! it’s your skinchick!  I have been away for some time.  As you guessed it, blogging is not my #1 priority.  I live a very busy life as most and I just have not been diligent about coming here often.  Maybe in the near future but for now, I do what I can.  I had an AMazing summer.  We spent most of it traveling, thanks to my job.

In July we spent the summer in NY for the birth of our new niece – Sophia.  I’m holding her.

August we went to Lake Tahoe.  We vacationed with friends and it was a BLAST!!

We hiked Mt. Tallac and it was HARD!!!

and then I started training for the “Ultimate hike” (26 miles of the PCT in one day).   That was so much fun and luckily I was able to work alongside the hike training. The picture below was taken the day after the hike on Oct 28th.  An experience to last a life time.

Yes! I did it again. We hiked 26 miles for Children’s Cancer Research to raise awareness and money for the cause.

Why you might ask? well, I am so blessed with 3 beautiful healthy children and as a parent I know I could not bare to lose one of my own.  My heart tells me this is what I must do.  Be a voice for the children.  Helping children’s cancer research so that the children of the future can have a fighting chance.

Anyone coming across this page can join us in this fight against pediatric cancer. Check out the link below and donate what you can :-).  97% of the money raised goes to the cause.  NOW that is AWESOME!

Where is your money going?
CureSearch is a national non-profit foundation whose mission is to fund and support all children’s cancer research and provide information and resources to all those affected by children’s cancer. CureSearch raises funds for collaborative research conducted at more than 180 hospitals across the nation. These hospitals participate in National Cancer Institute sponsored clinical trials conducted by the Children’s Oncology Group. In the last 40 years, collaborative research has increased the overall survival rate for children’s cancer from 10% to 78%.
At CureSearch, the goal is 100%.
IMAGINE what progress could be made with new drugs!
Please donate, do it for the children! All children.

I find running to be one of those exercises I do for only a short period of time because I don’t really enjoy it but either way, if you’re going to do it, its important to learn how to prevent injuries.  I know my husband loves to run so to my honey and all my readers, I hope you enjoy the post below as much as I did.

MOMENTS IN TIME

{this moment} – A Friday ritual. A photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment.

A moment you want to pause, savour and remember.

“This Moment” is a ritual found on Life inspired by the Wee Man adopted from SouleMama which I then kidnapped from Sarah-Jane

A Friday ritual. A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week.

A simple, special, extraordinary moment.

A moment you want to pause, savor and remember.

“This Moment” is a ritual found on Life inspired by the Wee Man adopted from SouleMama which I’m following after Sarah.
