Recently showed a few people this picture of me from 2005! .
I have no answer to your first question...... "WHAT IS WITH YOUR HAIR"?🙊
2005, a time I thought I knew it all, when it came to my health, fitness, nutrition and balancing it all! .
When I look back @ this picture from 2005, all I can say is "How little I really knew then"!
I thought being healthy was running every few ........ weeks, joining a gym each new year, to only drop off my March! ⤵
Pairing all my lack of fitness with drinking diet sodas, slim fast, eating low fat, low sugar branded foods, experimented with trendy diets (Atkins, South Beach, etc. etc) and drinking almost every weekend! .
Lets be honest..... The Picture from 2005 shows that!
Lets talk about the 2018 picture!
🔹 high energy
🔹 not restricting nutrition
🔹 drinking a daily nutritious shake
🔹 active in year round fitness
🔹 no longer coloring my hair
I look @ myself and say
.......Damn I really am aging like fine wine!
Not easy to share all of this but my mission as a @ home health & fitness coach is to help others who may be where I once was. 🔹OH and listen........ I am nowhere near perfection! 🔹 It is a life long lifestyle and takes commitment to be the best me!!!! #inmy30sandlovingit #aginglikefinewine #upstateny #20052018 #newmentality #highenergy #airforcewife #redlipstick
Knowledge is power, community is strength and positive attitude is everything.
This could sum up the energy when some of the members of the German Female Entrepreneurs Association @vduptodate
in the Frankfurt area met for a Christmas party and enjoyed being on a similar journey together.
Do you spot me?
Love, Simona ✨🤩✨
Do not forget, you can:
• Start late • Start over
• Be unsure and uncertain • Look different
• Act different • Try and fail
And still succeed.
Dream big, get work done, surround yourself with good people.
Never give up! ✨

"When I contacted Betsy I didn’t realize how much sugar was running my life in so many different ways. Every day it was a chore to just keep up the rush before I crashed…or worse, I would crash and be irritable, incapable of making decisions, sometimes I even felt faint. Sugar ran the show. I knew I needed a lifestyle change. Betsy is so incredibly encouraging and such a great source of information. She breaks everything down in simple, realistic, attainable rules that I needed desperately. I knew what foods are healthy, I’ve regularly exercised for years, and I thought I was fueling my body throughout the day (I wasn’t). I have calorie counted before, but never gone on a diet. I was overwhelmed with all the information/options and nothing seemed like it would be attainable for the rest of my life. I knew if I dieted I would lose weight and then gain it back so what was the point.
Betsy established rules for my eating which has been life-changing. This equals that, have one or the other. Pair it with this, not that. Simple and totally attainable. My goal was to lose 15-20 pounds. What I didn’t fully grasp was how that goal would affect my body in other ways. I’m doing the same exercise routines I have done for years but I’m able to do them SO MUCH BETTER. I’m not dragging, I’m able to do the highest modifications and it feels great. My energy level is stable throughout the entire day as well as my mood which is huge. When I’m exhausted from a hard day or week I don’t shut down like I would before, I’m still able to think and do things without losing it. If I get hungry I don’t panic with a feeling like I need to put something in my mouth or I will “shut down”. I’m super happy with the weight I’ve lost, but the energy and quality of life I’ve gained working with Betsy cannot be measured by pounds or sizes. I’m truly grateful to her."

As you know my morning ritual is to drink a big cup of warm water with one table spoon lime juice or apple cider vinegar on an empty stomach.
The apple cider vinegar has many healthy beneffits:
1. It Kill Many Types of Harmful Bacteria.
2. its high in Acetic Acid, With Potent Biological Effects
3. Lowers Blood Sugar Levels and Fights Diabetes.
4. Helps You to Lose Weight and Reduces Belly Fat.
5.Lowers Cholesterol and Improves Heart Health
HOT 🍋 WATER = perfect morning hydration
HOW TO: Cut a lemon into 4 wedges. Each morning squeeze a wedge into 8-12 ounces almost boiling water & throw the whole wedge into the mug. You can also add a few shakes of cayenne for a real wake-me-up. I LOVE seeing the sunny yellow wedge floating around in there (especially this time of year☁️❄️). Pucker Up Sunshine!
5 REASONS TO JOIN THE HOT LEMON WATER CLUB:
1. Craving Buster: Sour & bitter foods reset taste buds to help you crave less sweet stuff.
2. Immune Boost: Lemon contains immune-boosting vitamin C.
3. Energy Kick: Staying well hydrated keeps energy levels naturally high.
4. Appetite Help: Water before meals decreases appetite so you naturally eat less.
5. Mental Jumpstart: Starting the day with hot lemon water gives you the feeling that you’ve already done something good for your body. It puts you mentally on track to have a healthy day and can snap you out of a less-than-healthy eating streak.
PS: You can drink hot lemon water along side your usual AM coffee. You don’t have to pick one over the other, have BOTH!

Man. I remember how proud I was in that first picture. It was after I busted my butt to lose 30 pounds. I worked out HARD several days a week and was in a pretty intense calorie deficit most of the time. But I never could lose any more weight. I hit a plateau that lasted months, and I ultimately gained the weight back. With keto I get to eat a very savory diet, feel satisfied, and trim down. I didn’t even workout during the year that I lost 50 pounds on keto (not proud of this—movement is so important). But it just goes to show that we need to find what is right for us. I’m not nearly as strict keto as I used to be #ketobuticheato
😜. But I really believe in the healing power of eating high fat, low carb. Let’s just say I came for the weight loss and stayed for everything else. #keto #ketogenic #ketogeniclifestyle #highfatlowcarb #weightlosstransformation #mentalclarity #highenergy #nomorehangry #smoothskin #ketotransformation
