Did I say simple? Yes. I did!

Happy SATURDAY beautiful people!

As you've read in my prior post YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT I was expecting the best from my body while not giving my body the best! I got involved with a fitness/ weight loss group to finally tackle my battle of the bulge! To my surprise, I've been successful! I've lost 25lbs so far, & I feel like I'm in the best shape of my life! As I approach the 90 day mark of my #Drop30by30 fitness campaign, I am seeking ways to maintain my weight loss & continue my quest to be healthy & fit! There are many ways to take on weight loss, & millions of fads to follow to get in shape. So much so, that it might just drive you crazy. I think its important to start off slow & set little goals in order to achieve larger ones. Also, get with like-minded people that can motivate you & encourage you to achieve those little goals.

So...We've all heard of BeachBody right ??? The folks behind P90X, Hip Hop Abs & MANY other workout videos! Their motto is DECIDE, COMMIT, SUCCEED! Its been my motivation & hopefully you can adopt it too..See, I told you it was SIMPLE!

Based on some desire in your life, you must DECIDE that a change is necessary. Set a goal to accomplish!

I want to fit those jeans again!
I want to keep up with my children!
I want to fight diabetes, high BP, obesity!
I want to be fit!

Once that goal has been set, you must determine what it will take to achieve the goal & then COMMIT to it!

I'm going to run 2 miles a week!
I'm going to stop drinking sodas!
I'm going to lower my sugar intake!
I'm going to replace one meal a day with a fresh salad!

The most simple part! You made a decision, you stuck to doing what it takes to make it a reality. You get the results!

The jeans fit!
You're playing with the kids & not out of breath. Hell, you wore them out!
Your sugar level decreases, BP regulates!
You feel energized! Lighter! Refreshed!

This can be used in other aspects of life as well. Work, businesses, relationships. Some of you are on the first step with your health & fitness! You've DECIDED there's a problem! Some of you may still need to DECIDE it's time to change! Some of us are battling the COMMIT part! We want change, it's hard! Don't be discouraged! It's important that you follow through in order to SUCCEED! Once you've succeeded with that goal, set a new one! Recognize that life is a series of processes. Take it 1 day at a time, 1 goal at a time, 1 small victory at a time! Before you know it, you'll have won so many small battles, you'll have already won the war! DO NOT BE DEFEATED!!! EVER!

Hello Beautiful!

Spring is approaching! The rain is falling, nourishing the land & preparing for this year's bloom! What are you doing to prepare for Spring? Many of us break out the scrub brushes & industrial strength cleaners, fill some garbage bags with old clothes & linen & get to cleaning house! That's an awesome thing- decluttering your space, but have you considered decluttering your FACE?

Facial massage & skin care treatments are an excellent way of turning back the hands of time. Not only are these services relaxing & restful, there are many other benefits that, when properly performed, produce visible improvement in your skin tone, texture & appearance. Our skin naturally sheds every so often, & if we don't remove old skin cells our skin starts to appear lackluster, dried out & old! Aged skin also decreases in function over time. Nourishment & circulation declines, wrinkles form, & before you know it, you no longer recognize the person in the mirror.

Facial massage helps to reduce fat cells, increase blood circulation, stimulate & strengthen muscles & increase nourishment to the skin. Facial treatments leave the skin soft, & flexible & can relieve pain & tension in the face, scalp & neck. Renew yourself with an exfoliating facial massage to remove old worn out cells & leave your skin fresh, renewed & blinging with youthfulness! Bring in Spring, feeling & looking like a fresh bloom!

If you're in the metropolitan Los Angeles area & looking for a professional exfoliating facial massage, contact F.A.C.E. by K. Sweet @ 323 401 0744 to schedule an in-home pampering session! Bring me your tired, worn out & overworked skin, I'll provide the gift of a fresh, renewed, relaxed new you!

Hello Loves!

First, let me apologize for my absence. As you know, I've been trained in Barber Artistry as well as Facial Artistry, & I was away preparing for my state licensure! Thank God, I am now a Licensed Professional. Thanks for your support. Much more to come from K. Sweet! Muah!

Today I just want to drop a little something on you regarding the most effective beauty tool you possess: YOUR SPIRIT!

Inside of all of us there is a portion of our make up that exists to serve as a guide, comforter & confidante. It's that support system when we need a push! It's that stop sign before we make bad decisions. It's that hand we hold as we walk through tough times, & that assurance that things will work out fine. It's the reason you smile when bills are due & you have no money. It's the reason, if you're anything like me, people ALWAYS seem to strike up a conversation with you in public for no apparent reason. (LoL I used to wonder, 'why are they talking to me?')... DON'T DENY YOUR SPIRIT! If you tune in closely and listen intently, your spirit tells you the who's, what's, when's, and why's, & sometime the how's!

There's nothing more attractive than a beautiful spirit! No amount of cosmetics can hide the ugly in you! Some of the most visually beautiful people in the world have the UGLIEST spirits! You know them! You've come in contact with them. They may have rejected you at some point. NEVER ignore your spirit! OR the spirit of others for that matter. There's a solid Christian teaching that says 'do not believe every spirit but test the spirits,' meaning examine a person according to the spirit in them. Allow a person's spirit to speak for them & let the spirit in you assess who that person really is, for it is the truest judge of character.

We get so caught up in life that sometimes we begin to just go through the motions & that's not what life is about. Not sure who said it fist, but 'We are spiritual beings going through human experiences.' not the other way around! To be successful in life, you must be in tune with your spirit. Deep down inside of all of us there is a yearning to live right, do right! What is right? Ask your spirit. If you feel like you can't hear your spirit anymore, it's time to get reacquainted. Find a quiet place, meditate, pray, speak to your spirit. Link it with the spirit of the Creator & ask for guidance. Only then will you be able to FACE yourself, FACE your fears, FACE your talents & successes. Let it remind you how strong you are! Let it tell you how great you are! Let it tell you what choices to avoid! Let it use you! There's a King in you, Brother! There's a Queen in you, Sister! FACE YOUR SPIRIT!

We'll talk makeup applications & cosmetics real soon, but MY SPIRIT wanted to speak to your spirit today! Let that tidbit marinate in you a little bit & watch the beauty that's inside of you outshine all the made-up faces around you! Love yourself & one another! God bless!
