Just letting you know that this Friday, 4/17/2020, I will be going live on Facebook and Instagram at 5:30 pm. I have some juicy information for you! Come with questions and ready to interact. Can’t wait to connect with you.
Oh, and DON’T FORGET! The new publication is up and ready for order.. “Drink To Health” features smoothie recipes specifically geared towards boosting your immune system as well as a list of immune boosting foods to incorporate into your diet today and EVERY day!
As we move into the second quarter of 2020, I want to bring awareness and attention to issues that could be affecting many of you. We have all been bombarded with information (and some misinformation) regarding COVID-19 (a.k.a ‘the rona’). I have done two live videos addressing self care and immune support during this time and will continue to check in with you all via social media as regularly as possible. In an attempt to add some normalcy to our lives, I want to point out that April is IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) Awareness Month. Currently, it is estimated that 10-15% of the adult population are currently living with IBS. This is no small number and deserves to be addressed as well!
So what is Irritable Bowel Syndrome? It’s a long-term disorder that affects the digestive system. The most common symptoms include cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, gas, and diarrhea or constipation, or BOTH. Usually, it is controlled through diet, stress management and lifestyle changes.
One of the most important lifestyle changes to implement is LISTENING TO YOUR BODY! In order to effectively treat and manage your symptoms, your doctor may try an elimination diet to discover trigger foods. From there, variations in diet can be done with less pain and with better results. Reducing stress, meditation, fiber-rich foods, lots of water and reducing caffeine are all a good start as well. Please see your doctor if you are experiencing these symptoms. Your health coach can assist you during these trials as well :-).
I am offering a SPECIAL until our quarantine is over. $100 per month for one on one health coaching and $35/month for group coaching (groups of 4 or more)! Before you get worried, YES! Even after we are back to normal routines, your price remains during the FULL6 MONTH PROGRAM. I understand that we are in difficult financial times but want to strongly advise that a health coach can be a great resource and tool as you adjust to the changes in your life and Lifestyle Motives is here to help! Head to www.lifestylemotives.com to schedule a breakthrough session today. Spaces are limited and will be done electronically until social distancing is in our rear view.
Be safe, sanitized and satisfied! Happy April 2020!

The world has been changing at a rapid pace and it’s causing a SHIFT in life as we know it. For some, social distancing is a struggle and for others a needed blessing. But either way, make sure you are taking steps to amp up your self care. The better you feel, the more PRESENTyou can be to connect with the people and/or pets you live with, work on a goal (if you have a current one), home school your little companions or even fully relax. Here are 11 tips to help you quarantine in a healthyway!

Pray and connect with your higher power, then the self
So excited for everything to come this year. I pray you all stay on this journey here with me and you’ll continue to get all of me. I don’t really do resolutions but, I will say that I want to be better and eventually my BEST for me and all of you. Take care, God bless and LET’S GET IT THIS YEAR!!!!
This is a recipe that I’ve been going back and forth to get it right and I LOVED IT for breakfast this morning. Definitely filling, fiber packed and nutrient dense. Let me know how you do with your own version. You can make as many flavors as you would like, just go for it. The only exception is to have equal amounts of oats/milk ratio and keep the layering method the same. Take care and try this for breakfast asap.
I don’t know about anyone else BUT, snacking at work is REAL! The stress and anxiety of the work day makes some of us, me included, snack/munch mindlessly. I try to keep the healthiest snacks in my desk at work. This not only helps me cut down on calories but also on those random hunger pangs that seem to appear only when dealing with tough situations. Here is a list of my ‘essentials’:
Nuts – preferably rich in Omegas and protein. Almonds and walnuts are examples
Nutrient rich cereal – make sure it’s tasty with or without milk! I like Raising Bran, anything Kashi, Fiber One and Great Grains (but watch the portion sizes!)
Fruit cups in fruit juice only – this is in addition to any fresh fruits and veggies I carry in my lunch bag
Bottled water – hydration is key and very helpful in controlling hunger. My job has a water cooler but I usually keep a bottle or 2 just in case.
Popcorn and rice cakes – both are in salty and sweet varieties (some are both!)
