Let’s Play Carb Crush!¬†

Hi Divas! 

You know how annoying it is to get game request to play games on Facebook. Imagine if Carb Crush were a game that you could just ignore the alerts to come play. 

Here we are trying to get our healthy on and Carb Crush is sending us invites all day errrrrday! Office Potlucks, Pizza Day, Birthdays, Bae got promoted etc. We decline the request then eventually give in and then go HAM! We eat the donuts, the cake, the bagels, the entire basket of Red Lobster Cheddar Buscuits! #shameless Then the vicious cycle starts all over again and again. 

So what are carbs anyways? They are sugars & starches. Carb Crush is not a fun game to play when a diva doesn’t have the rules, because if we eat too much we store fat if we eat too little we  binge eat. It’s a fine line of eating the right carbs along with a balanced diet. 

What do carbs do? They provide a diva with energy and that energy is either stored as fat or burned as fuel. If we eat too many it raises our blood sugar and stores carbs as fat. #notagoodlookforadiva

So why bother to play Carb Crush?  Foods that have carbs also have minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, and other micronutrient that we need to well you know, live.  It’s best to eat carbs that are high in fiber  because your body will digest them slower and keep your blood sugar on rock steady on cruise control instead of the ups and downs of a roller coaster! 

“Donut Give Up!”  Eat a salad instead!

Birthday Week #VirgoSeason

September 12, 2015

Hey Divas!

This past week I celebrated my birthday, my 38th Birthday. I remember being in my 7th Grade English class and my teacher at the time was in her mid to late 60’s, it was the first day of school and she had mentioned that she had a son and he was 38 years old. I thought to myself wow he’s OLD!!!! WOW she has a 38 year old son!?!?!? It’s even harder to believe that this was over 20 years ago! I’m not sure why but my 12 year-old self resonated with 38 being old as dirt!

Now that I actually am 38 … little did I know how YOUNG her son actually was! It’s not that old and not so bad LOL! I didn’t plan to do anything for my B Day this year just wanted to coast a bit not really in the mood to celebrate; a random birthday turned out to be one of the BEST Birthdays that I have had in a reallllllly long time!

It was in typical Vegas Fashion my friends took me out to First Friday Arts Festival I have been dying to go since it started I don’t know how many years ago and I never seemed to have made it out there! Excited that I FINALLY made it! We watched an amazing artist perform LIVE Michael Jackson Art, we were entertained by Cock Roach Theater Company with a 10 minute mini play. We then wrapped up the evening with Vegas Marilyn whom we met at Mermaids for a night cap! It-was-awesome for those of you who don’t know I am a HUGE Marilyn Monroe Fan and it was quite the treat to chat it up with her!

On Sunday my friends treated me to a fabulous dinner @ KOI in Planet Hollywood the food was amazing and delicious! The restaurant later turned into a nightclub and we danced the night away!

I’m so grateful to have fabulous women in my life whom I sincerely consider as my sisters. True friendship is not easy to come by there are people who claim to be your friend only for you to find out that they will through you under the bus in a hot minute if the situation permits, run off with your man, or constantly try to one up you. I’ve seen it and been through it I’m here to say that true friendship is truly a rare and precious gift that you have not only on your birthday but throughout year and years to come!
