  • Be The Reason Someone Smiles Today

    Posted on March 14, 2018 by Wendy

    Someone said to me yesterday "It must be nice doing what you love".
    Made me think because I do wake up each day thankful that another day is upon me.

    I guess what I love is meeting new people, building great relationships, and seeing people smile.
    If I can be a small part of their smile my day was lived with some kind of purpose.

    It's amazing how your entire overall health is affected when you are happy and smile.
    Your body will thrive when filled with positive thoughts.

    Giving the gift of a smile is even better!

    Have a fabulous day everyone and Be The Reason Someone Smiles Today :)

  • Plant Proteins

    Posted on March 11, 2018 by Wendy

    As I have been charting my intake
    of healthy fats, proteins, and veggies
    I came across this great article from
    Dr. Robert O Young about how to
    get your protein without eating animal
    protein.

    Protein Love Affair

    Protein is an essential nutrient which plays many key roles in our bodies,
    but despite America’s love affair with high protein, our bodies don’t actually need that much.

    Dr. Robert O. Young says, “Our bodies are only 7% protein.
    In contrast to cow’s milk, which is protein rich, human mother’s milk is
    only 5% protein (i.e., better suited to the body’s protein requirements).
    In addition, animal protein foods often contribute factors to the body,
    which are unneeded and then represent a challenge to dispose of (e.g., saturated fats).”

    The recommended daily intake of protein is .8 grams of protein for every kilogram in weight.
    Making adjustments for how plant proteins digest somewhat differently from animal proteins,
    The Vegetarian Resource Group arrives at .9 grams of protein per kilogram body weight.
    That’s about 71 grams of protein for a vegan male weighing 174 pounds.

    Plant sources of protein are delicious, abundant, and very healthy for your heart.
    Protein can be alkalizing!

    Here's a list of 5 common vegetarian protein sources, and the amount of protein they provide:

    EDAMAME (protein per cup = 17g)
    Along with high protein and essential amino acids.
    Edamame are also highly alkaline because of their magnesium content.
    But be sure to buy organic, non-GMO edamame, because 90% of soy products are genetically modified.

    HEMP SEEDS (protein per 2 tbsp. = 10g)
    High in protein and loaded with heart health benefits.

    CHIA SEEDS (protein per 2 tbsp. = 5g)
    Loaded with Omega-3 fatty acids and protein means these tiny seeds can decrease the risk of heart disease.

    BEANS (protein content per cup of mung = 49g; black = 39g; kidney = 43g; adzuki = 39g; lentils = 18g)
    Of course, beans are high in protein, but they’re also high in fiber,
    iron, zinc, calcium and more.

    QUINOA (protein per cup = 8g)
    Even though we eat quinoa as though it were a grain,
    it really isn’t a grain at all. It’s a seed.
    The source plant is related to beets, spinach, and Swiss chard.

    Whether you’re fueling for your work day or fueling for a workout,
    a little protein throughout the day, from vegan sources, really does go a long way.

    Friday Night Delight

    Sometimes after a long week Friday nights are the time
    for something quick and easy so why not make
    it healthy at the same time.

    Being prepared is half of the battle
    to having quick and easy meals so I
    like to pre cook the chicken and keep
    lots of fresh vegetables already chopped
    on hand for moments like this.

    INGREDIENTS

    3 Organic Brown Rice cakes
    Tzatziki- low fat
    fresh spinach
    1 tomato
    black olives
    shredded chicken breast

    INSTRUCTIONS

    Spread 1 tsp of tzatziki on rice cakes
    Put as much fresh spinach as you can
    chop 1 tomato
    chop black olives
    add shredded chicken breast.

    You can add some sea salt and ground
    pepper for taste

    Enjoy

    Great way to get some protein and alkaline
    at the end of the day

  • Measure Inches vs Pounds - Part 2

    Posted on February 18, 2018 by Wendy

    So as the journey of eating healthier continues
    I wanted to share some good news with you.

    It's not always about your weight, it's
    about how you feel in your own skin.

    Sometimes you feel down after
    stepping on that scale and it seems
    like nothing is working.

    You are eating a more alkaline diet,
    you are starting to exercise, you watch
    those calories and that darn scale
    doesn't change

    If you measure yourself by your weight only
    you just might be cheating yourself out of
    an achievement you didn't realize was
    taking place.

    I decided to take some measurements the
    other day and realized I was losing inches
    instead of lbs.

    It's crazy how that number on the scale
    affects how we think, live, and feel.
    I have been the same weight for months
    now however didn't see that changes were
    taking place because my mind was focused
    on a number.

    Start to measure inches instead of pounds.
    Start to measure how you feel.
    Start to measure what your skin looks like
    Start to measure your energy level
    Start to measure all the great things going
    on instead of measuring weight

    I have to tell you that shopping for
    jeans has always been such a stressful
    experience.

    Most of my friends wear skinny jeans
    and even the thought of skinny jeans
    makes me feel confined.

    With much encouragement from women
    who love me I went on the adventure
    to find skinny jeans and was pleasantly
    surprised at what I saw looking back at
    me in the mirror yesterday.

    I even managed to find some high boots
    to accommodate my curvy legs.

    I encourage each of you to read more
    about alkaline vs acidic eating,
    Add more pH to your life, and
    start paying attention to your body
    not the scale

    I have lots of recipes on my blog
    and in my book to get you started.

    Enjoy!

    Measure Inches not Pounds

  • Losing inches vs pounds

    Posted on February 10, 2018 by Wendy

    As we age the struggle to lose pounds seems to get
    greater as each year passes.

    How I remember those days when weight dropped off
    just as easy as it was put on.

    Our metabolism slows down and changes especially
    after menopause hits for us ladies and the ideas of
    losing that weight as quick as we gained it is not as
    easy as we would like it to be.

    I have been charting my weight loss and muscle mass
    as I do my best to eat a more alkaline diet and for the
    past month the scale stayed the same

    I however feel lighter in the mid section and on my buttocks

    So this morning I took out the measuring tape and I
    actually have lost a couple inches off both.
    The scale however said the same.

    I have been a bit hard on myself this past month
    thinking why isn't this working?
    So I am here today to share with you
    it's not always about what the scale says.

    I know, as humans we want to chart our success and
    say "hey I lost 10 pounds" however if you are losing
    inches and body fat and gaining muscle it will be
    a greater story to share.

    Check out this fabulous article by Livestrong.com
    It's and excellent perspective on Losing inches vs pounds

  • There's a Hole Down That Road

    Posted on January 26, 2018 by Wendy

    I heard this the other day while listening
    to James MacDonald and thought I would share with you.

    Such a great analogy of how we walk the road of life and do not
    see the holes we fall into.

    It takes us a while to realize we keep falling into the
    same holes.

    The process to get out of them can be long and then
    finally we walk a different road all together.

    There's A Hole Down That Road

    I walk down the road. There’s a hole down that road.
    I don’t see the hole. I fall in the hole.
    It’s very deep, and at the bottom, where I lay broken,
    it’s cold and dark. I can’t get out.

    I walk down the road. There’s a hole down that road.
    I see the hole as I am walking down the road.
    I fall in the hole. It’s familiar and strangely cosy.
    I can’t get out.

    I walk down the road. There’s a hole down that road.
    I see the hole as I am walking down the road.
    I fall in the hole. I don’t like the hole anymore.
    I want to get out.

    I walk down the road. There’s a hole down that road.
    I see the hole as I am walking down the road.
    I dread falling in the hole. I fall in the hole.
    But I look up and decide to get out.

    I walk down the road. There’s a hole down that road.
    I see the hole as I walk down the road. I say to myself,
    “I will not fall in the hole again.” I fall in the hole again.
    I start climbing out.

    I walk down the road. There’s a hole down that road.
    I see the hole as I walk down the road.
    I try not to fall down the hole.
    But I fall in the hole again.
    I get back out straight away.

    I walk down the road. There’s a hole down that road.
    I see the hole as I walk down the road.
    My foot catches the edge and I fall in the hole.
    But I don’t hit the bottom.
    I cling to the edge and climb out of the hole.

    I walk down the road. There’s a hole down that road.
    I see the hole and step over it.
    I don’t fall in the hole this time.

    I walk down the road. There’s a hole down that road.
    I see the hole and step over it.
    But I trip. I fall in the hole.
    I climb out faster than before.

    I walk down the road. There’s a hole down that road.
    But I’m not on that road.
    I’ve walked down a different road.

  • Your Skin is Your Largest Organ - My Before and After

    Posted on January 13, 2018 by Wendy

    Did you know your Skin Is Your Largest Organ?

    Everything gets filtered thru your skin.

    All the toxins of the world, pollution, smoke etc,
    build up on your face and can cause wrinkles and make
    your face look dull and grey.

    Looking after your skin is important. Not just your
    face but all your body.

    Make sure you drink enough water to keep it hydrated,
    eat an alkaline diet and use a hydrating replenishing
    skin care system.

    I wanted to share a Before and After photo with
    you of a journey I have been on this past year and a half.

    So..... here's my before and after. Crazy aye!

    A few months before our wedding a friend introduced me to a new skin care line.

    I had seen her before and after photos and thought it was maybe a gimmick
    but she sure looked awesome.

    I have always been someone who took good care of my skin
    with facial cleanser, toner, creams etc. so decided to give it a try.

    I wanted to have a softer glow to my face for the wedding and after
    a couple of months I really enjoyed my results.

    I also had a couple of clients comment on how soft my face was looking.

    After the wedding I decided to continue to use the products and
    because I have mature skin over 50 I decided to purchase the
    aging serum product and eye cream.

    Then WOW happened!!

    It felt amazing. The results were staring me back from the mirror.

    I saw my face the other night after a relaxing bath and
    decided to take some photos.

    I had my Before photo still in my phone that my friend took
    on the first day after a facial and I compared my After photo
    and was definitely happy with the results

    So I have decided to share with you

    I am seriously considering taking on this product
    thru Fabulous, Fit & Fantastic Living

    The 1st photo is 1 year 9 months ago after a facial hence why a bit of redness
    and 2nd photo was this weekend after a relaxing bath. Fabulous results!!

    If you would like further information or hear more about what
    I have used and done feel free to email me at wendy@wendyladd.com

    I would be happy to share with you.
    I don't want to be doing a sales pitch on my blog

    Just wanted to show you the WOW!!

    Keep on Being Fabulous!

    Luv Wendy
