So I’m going on TV in two days

I got an email from a producer a few days ago asking if I was available to do a cooking demo for a local news channel in Seattle…

HELL YES!!!!

You know those moments when you feel like momentum is picking up and you’re on fire? My client list is steadily picking back up (there were a few months I was a Mama and couldn’t do it all) but I AM BACK and things are moving fast.

The Fall Detox is going great – still helping clients detox to build their immunity so they don’t catch the winter cold. Then last Saturday I hosted a Detox Cooking Workshop and loved every second. There we are below!

Yes, I provide online programs and private coaching via phone, but the in-person ACTUAL HUMAN INTERACTION is my favorite.

That’s why I’m hosting ANOTHER workshop next month.

It’s safe to say my hands are full and I am loving every minute! A little overwhelmed because I run a business, am a new mom and operate around a shift worker’s schedule, but this is how you do it! YOU JUST DO! In late January I thought it wouldn’t be possible. I thought that Bode man would take the company I built from nothing and squash it with his cuteness. I am still 100% obsessed with this beautiful boy we created, but Mama is getting her groove back. 

It’s hard. FOR SURE. I sometimes wonder how I’m doing it. How anyone is doing it. How do people work and parent and stay who you are, but not stay who you are and continue to grow in all ways, but super fast. I keep thinking, “I’ll just wait until things slow down…” and I’m sitting here looking at him and he’s almost 10 months!

Life does not slow down.

It speeds up and a baby shows you just how fast time goes!

So, I’m living with no regrets.

I’m doing the show on Wednesday. Check out King 5 New Day Northwest – think it’s airing around 11am.

And there’s this…

I booked a business retreat in December that I’ll be going to ALONE. That’s right. AN ENTIRE HOTEL ROOM TO MYSELF where I can sleep. I don’t even know what I’ll do with all that silence. Probably face time Bode and Alex the whole time…or not. Maybe a bath? WITH LAVENDER ESSENTIAL OIL? OH MY GOD AM I EXCITED! It’ll be the first time I’m alone for more than a few hours in 10 MONTHS! SAY WHAT.

Then in February, I’m leading the Winter Beauty Detox Retreat in the gorgeous Leavenworth, WA and I booked a legit lodge. WHAT. 

CARPE DIEM, BABY. SEIZE THE MOTHER FUCKING DAY. 

So many F bombs to myself, usually in my head, but this moment needs to be out loud. 

I BOOKED A LODGE!!!! YAY! GO WOMEN IN BUSINESS EVERYWHERE. And a bunch of brands want to be involved, an amazing yoga instructor is teaching Saturday night and we are going to remember this weekend because we will be changed. I can feel it with every ounce of my being. If  you need a soul shake up – this retreat is for you.

Okay, I’m actually writing this blog to avoid doing what I’m supposed to be doing, which is writing session notes for clients. I needed a little color in my day, a place to get my thoughts out, so if you are reading this – THANK YOU. YOU ARE AMAZING. YOU ARE DOING BIG THINGS. 

And remember this quote I heard last week that gave me the chills, “Not starting is the death of dreams.”

BOO YAH.

Love,

J

Three best juices to start drinking today!

If we’re homies on Instagram, you’ve seen how obsessed with juicing I’ve been lately.

These juices are a delicious mixture of fresh herbs, fruits, and vegetables, and will boost your weight loss, fat loss and reduce cellulite. 

They will also help clear your mind and improve focus.

  • 1 pink grapefruit, peeled
  • 2 oranges, peeled
  • 1 bunch of mint
  • 1 head romaine lettuce

Research has found that the phytochemicals found in grapefruit support weight loss by reducing insulin levels, allowing your body to use the energy in food rather than store it as fat.

Orange also lowers cholesterol, and aids in preventing cardiovascular ailments.

Mint helps mental processes, and the lettuce provides vitamin K—for blood clotting—vitamin C, and folate.
 

  • ½ lime, peeled
  • 2 whole apples
  • ½ cup pineapple
  • ½ medium cucumber
  • 1 shot of wheatgrass

Pineapple contains compounds like bromelain to help absorption.

Wheatgrass accelerates digestion, improves mental processing, satisfies cravings, and reduces hunger.

It’s a great juice to drink before meals, you will eat less overall, and what you do eat will be processed more quickly.

  • 5 kale leaves
  • ½ cup pineapple
  • 1 orange
  • ½-in piece of ginger

Pineapple is packed with vitamins and minerals, including thiamin, riboflavin, vitamin B-6, folate, pantothenic corrosive, magnesium, manganese, and potassium.

The kale in this juice provides a great source of vitamin K, which is crucial for bone and blood health. Kale delivers more iron per calorie than red meat.

The key to a more efficient metabolism is to provide your body with easy to digest foods that will trigger your body’s natural functions.

These juices are a great way to start!
