Simply My Swank Lifestyle Cleanse – The Ups and the Downs (literally)

Thank God for my Health and Happiness.  I appreciate that the Christmas season was here and we all celebrated the birth of our ONE TRUE KING!  AMEN!

Everyone can relate to the ups and the downs of our lives.  The ebb and the flow.  Right now I am addressing my weight gain.  Did you gain weight too?

The Christmas/New Year indulgences have found themselves resting on my hips and belly.  I am happy that I had a great time eating some delicious food with my family, but now, with this new beautiful year – 2019 I am going to get back into focus, eat healthy and start my great exercise routines again.

132.4 and I am 5’3″ I want to lose 7 pounds, let’s see how long it takes!

Much of my healthy lifestyle is based on a routine.  When Christmas season comes around my beautiful routine is thrown out the window and I allow myself to succumb to other atypical routines.

I am not down-in-the-dumps about my weight gain, no!  I am actually excited because I love to overcome obstacles, to clean up my lifestyle and get back to that gorgeous figure I love to sport.

I love that this is day 1 of my getting back into a healthy routine!  So here is a picture of my first line of defense – breakfast!

So if you want to join me, let’s do this!

Solid Food:

Steel Cut Oats, Organic Blueberries, Organic Cinnamon & Filtered Water

Mix your pot, boil and enjoy, I consumed only 1 cup of the mixture.  Plenty was left over for snacks, and such.

Power Weight Loss Drink:

One cutie orange – including peel, 2 tsps cinnamon, 2 tsps Cream of Tartar, 1 opened pouch of Lemon Ginger Tea and Hot Filtered Water.  (amazonsmile affiliate link)

Mix in your trusty mixer – I use the Ninja Pro (affiliate amazonsmile link)

Filter out the debris with a strainer – (optional) I’m super tactile and the gunk makes me gag.

Drink and enjoy natural fired up energy.  Cream of Tartar is the BEST! (another Amazonsmile Affiliate Link) Cream of Tartar energizes our metabolism, bring our system to an exciting energetic level without the use of Caffeine!  YES!



Now I am going to go workout in my garage with my gorgeous husband.  Thanks for joining me on another awesome Simply My Swank Lifestyle Cleanse!
