How Arbonne has Changed my Life..

I started my business and journey with Arbonne just a couple short months ago and I don’t see myself looking back. It has been such a positive thing for me and everyone else who has been on their Arbonne journey. First and foremost the team and women who surround me are encouraging, positive, and inspiring. It is truly hard to have bad days when you know you have people looking out for you. This was a big thing for me because I live in a town with no friends or family and it gets very lonely.

Second it is so easy! Like I said before I rarely get out of my house and so I don’t get to meet people very often and I am still successful. I have the opportunity to make a paycheck every Tuesday! And Arbonne is a gift, which makes you feel good about what I am sharing. Third the products are second to none and sell themselves. Arbonne is the #1 brand globally for healthy living inside and out. We carry something for everyone. From babies, to older people, men and women alike. Skincare, Nutrition, and makeup. And I’m not just reading statistics, I use everything myself and will never go back. Arbonne is pure, safe, and beneficial so you can feel good about using it. We ban over 2,000 ingredients to provide our clients with the most clean and beneficial products and they work wonders! I’ve seen major weight loss in a healthy way, muscle building, and watched my own skin be clearer than ever! Plus I feel good about using everything while pregnant. I wrote this post because if you are like I was maybe you could use some extra money, or are a stay at home parent who wants something for themselves, or maybe you just want to start clean living and detoxify your life. I am here for you! I started this just to not feel guilty when I get carried away at target and now I am happier and more positive and have goals to grow and get my Mercedes!

Where ever you are in your life let me show you how you can grow something extra! Message me, email me, find me on Instagram (erinrenaemua) or Facebook (Erin Trevathan ) and I would love to share more! Join my team, try the products or both!! There is no downside, I promise! xoxo erin

Motivation Monday

As most of you know, last Saturday I had a traumatic experience that left me super upset and ashamed of the way I looked. So last Monday I started a diet and began to revamp my exercise routine. I have to say so far it is going really well. I’ve studied nutrition all through school and knew what I needed to do but making a change when I’ve never had to workout or eat super healthy before was going to be a challenge.

I am so proud of myself so far. I have committed to making smoothies for breakfast and lunch. I also eat boiled eggs and nuts for snacks if I get hungry in between meals. I drink a gallon of water a day, or as close as I can get to. For dinner I make some sort of lean protein with a salad. I have had no alcohol, pop, or juice. I have done very well by not cheating as well. This weekend I relaxed a bit because we ate out and went to friends for dinner. I obviously did not restrict them to cooking what I could eat.

I feel as though I can begin to see slight changes. I feel my clothes beginning to loosen up just a bit. I am so excited and no way will I be giving up on this. I definitely want a rocking bod for my honeymoon.

Stay motivated loves! Staying committed is the best way to reach your goals. Keep things interesting and mix up foods and workouts so that you don’t get bored!

Liquid Diet: Yes or No?

Okay So I am not doing a 100% completely liquid diet but as I talked about in my previous post I just find it very difficult to eat fruits and veggies and meat. I primarily eat carbs- eekkk I know! So for this diet I am cutting out majority of carbs and bumping up my fruit, veggie, and protein intake. I am also revamping my workouts. Another part to mention about my new diet is to drink 128oz of water a day to help detox the liver and body. Be careful! You know if you have been around that I have actually given myself water poisoning so don’t go toooo crazy with the water! Aim for at least 80oz to start, especially if you are not a water person. It can be difficult to drink enough!FullSizeRender(11) So far the diet is going very well!! I wanted to share a smoothie that is very healthy! Only 153 calories per serving. The recipe makes two. Of course depending on your protein and liquid choices, the calories may change. I use a 100% whey protein in vanilla and it is sweetened with stevia instead of sugar from GNC (their brand).

Carrot Cake Smoothie, 2 servings:

  • 1/2 C. carrot juice
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 3/4 C. almond milk ( I use vanilla and unsweetened)
  • 1 scoop of protein powder
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 5 ice cubes

So Tasty!!

So far my 70% liquid diet is a total YES! it is going so well. If I get hungry in between smoothies I eat a boiled egg or a salad with very light dressing. As I keep tasting and testing smoothie recipes I will share them! I also want to leave y’all with some easy quick exercises that I got from pinterest:IMG_1766Till Next time

Body Shaming, Diets, and Acceptance

Hello Lovelies! If you follow me on twitter (You should! click on the link to the left (: ) then you saw my brief post where I had a really traumatizing experience of trying on some clothes that really tore me apart. So this will be a little bit of a different post.

So Saturday my husband, son and I set off to look for some running shoes and a baby gate. Pretty typical errands type of thing. Well we happened upon a department store near the end of our journey that was completely on sale from going out of business. They had tons of beautiful dresses and so we chose some for me to try on. I despise trying on clothes especially now with this body after baby that I am just not used to. I am in no way huge or fat and I don’t ever expect to be rail thin but it was a depressing wake up call. I couldn’t even get most of the dresses on and one of them that I did get on, I didn’t think would come off. I left the store holding back tears. I know I have been on a journey working out to try and get my body back to pre baby but I was seriously upset. We went straight home, I made a grocery list, I threw out all the fattening foods, and went to the grocery and bought kale. KALE PEOPLE! I bought all healthy foods.

I guess I sort of needed that saturday experience but it really made me sad. I can’t stand to look at my body. And I honestly don’t care about people saying love your body because of it giving me my baby. Of course I love my baby and that I could create such a miracle but I hate the after math. I don’t think anything is wrong with that. I think what is important is that you accept where you came from, where you are, and where you want to be.

I made a baby. I look like I had a baby. And now I am making a change to get my body back and love the way I look.

Okay so moving on to making a change! First off let me say I am 2 months away from having my Masters in Public Health. I have studied health and nutrition and exercise and the human body for many years. I know what I need to do. I just have to stay motivated and committed to this new lifestyle.

I went to GNC and picked up a recommended 100% whey protein from a wonderfully helpful woman working. I also picked up an Organic Superfood blend with protein powder while at the grocery. I rarely eat vegetables so I got this powder because it gives me all the nutrients from eating fruits and veggies!IMG_1768

I have decided to do a high protein, low carb diet. I am making smoothies for breakfast and lunch. Then a lean protein with veggies for dinner. My husband is not fighting me on this because we both are wanting to lose some weight. I will be updating you guys every week with my progress, recipes, motivation, and fitness tips.

I get many of my smoothie recipes from Pinterest so give me a follow over there to see what recipes and workouts I am pinning at makemommyup !!

I started today. My goal by April 2018 (Honeymoon time!!) is to lose 40lbs. This is roughly 5lbs a month which is absolutely doable. I am not 100% worried about a number on the scale. For myself I want to feel and look good and be healthy. And of course I want my clothes to fit again!

OMG this is my longest post ever. You deserve an award for making it to the end!! I hope I can help motivate y’all and we can all make some changes to be more healthy together!

Join the fitness journey with me loves! Leave me comments here or on twitter. Leave your favorite healthy recipes or snacks!!

Fitness After Baby

Getting back in shape is probably in the back of every pregnant ladies mind. It can be difficult and stressful and just plain hard! After all you just spent the last 40 or so weeks growing a human and then brought it into the world. That is a miracle and not everyone has a supermodel experience where they are back to perfect shape and feeling great right after birth. And I am right here with you to get back to the pre-baby body or just get in better shape. I am going to share my journey with you and share easy workouts and yummy food that can help you along the way!

I have the personal goal to lose 25 pounds by memorial day weekend. That weekend will be the first time me and my husband go back to the beach where we met and bring baby Knox with us! There are also a few other couples going so I just don’t want to be super out of shape when I sit on the beach with one of my best friends who is in great shape! That is my motivation.

So I invite you to join this journey with me!

First I go on a mile walk/jog with baby (in the stroller of course) around my neighborhood to get my heart rate up.

My favorite exercise is squats. I know I am insane. So I have been using my baby to workout with as my weight. While holding baby to center/chest I do 3 sets of 30 squats and 3 sets of 30 lunges

I then do 10 minutes of jump rope. I got a weighted one off of amazon for my husband so I use that.

Then do 40 crunches

30 jumping jacks

30 crunches

15 push ups

30 second wall-sit

15 push ups

This combo gives an overall full body workout and you will really feel it mainly in your legs! Hope you enjoy this workout. I will definitely bring you more workouts in the near future. Please leave me comments on your favorite workouts and if you enjoyed this one!
