Getting Kids to Juice!

2017-08-12T15:49:10-04:00Tuesday, June 7, 2016|Tags: , , , |

People always ask me, 'How do you get kids to eat healthy?" The answer is simple - feed them healthy - may sound easy but before most children are 2 years old they have been inundated with sugar, birthday cake, candy, high fructose corn syrup, cereals, ice cream and the list goes on... food that if you truly realized how bad it was - you wouldn't feed to someone who hated - but now you are noticing you're feeding it your most precious loved ones -- they are getting desensitized to taste, further away from raw, natural flavors and the heading towards early diabetes, obesity and a host of health problems. If its true you ARE WHAT YOU EAT - then lets start with natural, nutrition rich ingredients to help build our young ones as strong and healthy as possible yes?   replace sugar drinks with fresh natural juices (adding in veggies) offer them water whenever possible involve them in the cook process in the kitchen talk about what food really is and why we eat - and if you don't know, lets get educated!

Growing Up Ugly…

  I wish I had known truly that I was pretty way back when -- this was one of my very first headshots - and they didn't have photoshop back then -- but growing up with frizzy hair, a broken nose, braces and 30+ lbs overweight -- that fat, ugly girl just did not believe that photo was me -- its been a long road to get to self love -- self acceptance and the ability to move forward for real #throwbackthursday what is keeping YOU from being the VERY best YOU, you can be!

Launching Forbes Factor

2017-08-12T15:51:46-04:00Wednesday, June 1, 2016|Tags: , , , |

When we first purchased the building that was to become the Forbes Riley production studios it was a bit of a gamble and leap of faith into the unknown.   My husband and I had longed talked about creating a space where I could perform, or film, or hold classes but with the launch of our fitness company SpinGym my focus was split and then we also had 2 twin toddlers. We purchased the building and began the buildout with the back half being the "studio" and the front half being office and the coolest conference room I could imagine - its round, white, with a wall painted as a white board.  It turned out better than I could imagined. Then what to do with it -- luckily I had some amazing girlfriends who came to my rescue - in particular were Daphne Street and Leslie Belcher.  Over lunch I outlined this dream I had to teach and coach and transform the lives of people (okay, specifically women) but I was open.  Within months of talking about this vision we created to completely unique and amazing programs.  The first was Forbes Factor - an interactive one day, life changing [...]

A pineAPPLE a day!

2017-08-12T15:51:47-04:00Monday, May 2, 2016|Tags: , , , |

Doctors talk about an apple a day well - good news for Hawaii - Pineapples are IDEAL for Weight Loss! 1. Fresh, raw pineapple contains an enzyme called bromelain that aids digestion by breaking down protein in the digestive tract. This promotes muscle strength and elasticity, and we know that muscle burns more calories than fat! 2. The bromelain enzyme contains potassium, so it actually neutralizes sodium, arginine and some acids. This helps eliminate water from your body, flushing fat out with it...making it a natural diuretic. It even drains adipose tissue, thus being a treatment for cellulite. 3. Pineapple is also anti-inflammatory which helps solve many stomach and intestinal problems. 4. Pineapple contains no fat, and is a low calorie, low energy density fruit which means more food for less calories. Why not eat fresh pineapple instead of having a sugary dessert?! (1 serving = app. 1⁄2 cup = about 40 calories) 5. The high fiber content in pineapples makes you feel full (causing you to stop eating) and helps keep your bowels consistent. 6. Pineapple is 87% water which helps you feel full and increases your water intake, both of which are good for weight loss. 7. [...]

9 Words Women Use…

2016-02-11T06:55:32-05:00Thursday, February 11, 2016|Tags: , , , |

9 WORDS WOMEN USE... (1) Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up. (2) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.   (3) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine. (4) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It! (5) Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing.)  (6) That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.   (7) Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you're welcome. [...]

New Years Resolutions 2016

2017-08-12T15:51:49-04:00Sunday, January 3, 2016|Tags: , , , |

Its new year 2016! New Year, healthier you New Year’s resolutions are a bit like babies: They’re fun to make but extremely difficult to maintain. Each January, roughly one in three Americans resolve to better themselves in some way but sadly a much smaller percentage of people actually make good on those resolutions. It's hard to keep up the enthusiasm months after you've swept up the confetti, but it's not impossible. This year, pick one of the following worthy resolutions, and stick with it. Here’s to your health! Lose weight The fact that this is perennially among the most popular resolutions suggests just how difficult it is to commit to. But you can succeed if you don’t expect overnight success.  A highly recommend starting a journal - for you food and your mental health - my favorite Quit smoking I watched both my parents die from smoking and it is mind bending to me that even though it clearly says on the package that smoking WILL cause cancer... we can't seem to fight the addiction.  My personal recommendation after you've tried will power and patches - is hypnosis -- I will have a new CD out and if you'd like more info [...]

Me and Bruce Jenner

2017-08-12T15:51:50-04:00Sunday, December 27, 2015|Tags: , , , |

In a place far away in a much simpler time - I had a chance to meet an American Hero, Olympic Decathlon Gold Medalist and superstar athlete.  His name was Bruce Jenner.  In light of all that's happening the WAS in very appropriate because apparently he is gone.  I am a bit sad about that.  Does that mean he died?  I support the new Caitlyn Jenner as she seems happy and fulfilling a lifelong dream to complete her/his identity.  My heart hurts though, it must have been a life full of serious inner turmoil and conflict and I just happy now it seems to be a positive path.  But where did Bruce go? I just came across my some old photos and wanted to share them.  Whenever a human reaches extraordinary heights and serves as an inspiration they should be honored... and in my own little way here's to Bruce!

  Thanksgiving 2015 - fun family food and fitness... don't blow what you know to be true - this is not your last meal - so enjoy the protein, go light on the stuffing and have a taste of dessert - not the whole pie! BUT first a few tips: 1. Be sure to eat slowly.  2. KNOW THAT THIS IS NOT YOUR LAST MEAL!! :) 3. Fill the INSIDE of your plate 1X  4. Protein is a fist size 5. Veggies are 2 -3 fists (umm, if they aren't loaded with marshmallows) 6. Don't snack on the appetizers 7. Drink 8-10oz of water 30 minutes BEFORE you eat! 8. Never eat without a napkin on your lap (translates to: don't eat standing up) 9. Stop before you've cleared that plate and ask yourself, "Am I still hungry?" 10. ENJOY the people. The LOVE. The Gratitude. That's truly what this holiday SEASON is all about.. not the food. 11. Take a tupperware container and pack some of this goodies you couldn't finish in your plate for another meal.

What a treat to appear on Hallmark's Home and Family with my old friends Mark and Christine.  We talked health and fitness, got everyone SpinGyming and a blast!  Thank you Woody Fraser and Debbie Supnick!

Hosting an Infomercial in my PJ’s

 This was such a treat to host this show in my pajamas and then go out in the park and ask people what pillow they use! How important is choosing the correct pillow? Getting good quality sleep is so vital for living a healthy life. To that end a quiet dark bedroom, no distractions and not doing work in bed till all hours will actually greatly improve your productivity, state of mind and ultimately your happiness. One of the key factors toward getting the full benefits of your time in bed is having a pillow that best serves YOU. So many of us don’t realize it, but pillows serve a very specific role in their sleep. Since pillows play an important role in your sleep, they will have a considerable impact on your quality of rest and your overall well-being. Resting your head on a pillow when you sleep serves two basic functions. A pillow provides support to the sleeper’s neck and upper back when they are resting and they provide a better level of comfort than can be had without a pillow. When you are shopping for a pillow, it is important to consider both of these [...]
