The Dream of Serving Others

What do you dream about?  What is it you would like to do really?  For me, it’s having a bed and breakfast to serve up smiles, listen to & learn people’s stories, and offer necessary rest and relaxation.
Tell me what you dream of for your future. I’d love to hear from you!

Day Three of Starting Fresh: The Detox Diet (Haas, 2012) Cleanse

Day THREEEEEE!!! WEEEEEEEE!!! Wow, have I had a great day! Energy, smiles, and no hunger pangs! I didn’t have to try and NOT eat every delicious thing I saw or smelled.suppress-appetite<<~~~~~Therefore, I didn't look like this. *Smile*

Now, the big change that did happen today is this: I had fresh veggies vs. the guideline steamed veggies. Do you know what happens after you've been eating foods that are great for you and mild to digest and then eat fresh veggies that can wreak havoc on your system?

Yes, you do.

You end up in the quiet place where you get to finally read your favorite magazine (or play Words With Friends…).

Yep. The bathroom.

My tummy was quite upset with me, and it let me know. When it was all over with (in all fairness, it only lasted about 10 minutes!), I went to the living room and did a 25 minute cardio workout. Talk about high energy!

This detox has been so great for me on many, MANY levels. All I can hope is for you to be experiencing the same results, if not better!!!

Ready for Day 4? You up for more? I think we can do this. I KNOW we can do this!

Be well and make it a great day!

Day Two of Starting Fresh: The Detox Diet (Haas, 2012) Cleanse

Okay. Yesterday was absolutely. terrible.

By the time I clocked out of work I was in tears with a migraine that lasted into the wee morning hours of the today. I had the lingering headache that follows, but made sure to add in a little protein at my evening meal — that REALLY helped take the rest of the headache away.

headache-remedyNow, that’s what I should have done. *Ha ha*

Now that I’m done with Day One and Two, I can’t wait to tackle Day Three!!! Not too sure if I’m going to do this for Seven Days, but three will be FANTASTIC!

How are YOU doing? Let me know! I love your feedback!

Be well and make it a great day!

Starting Fresh: Detox Diet (Haas, 2012) Cleanse


If you haven’t read this book, I’d suggest picking it up right away! It could mean the difference between living and REALLY living! With so much arguing going on about food, detoxing, cleansing, and every other “health” topic out there, The Detox Diet (Haas, 2012) really helps to spell things out in easy-to-understand language (good thing…ha!) and gives you the know-how to approach a healthier lifestyle. You just have to decide to do it.

With that said, tomorrow, Monday, January 12th will be DAY ONE of seven for me to begin a great cleanse to get me off the “SNACCs” (The point of our detoxifying cleanse is to help us overcome our addiction to SNACCs (Haas, 2012)).

“Jenn…what in the world are SNACCs???” you ask.
Well, simply put, SNACCs are: Sugar, Nicotine, Alcohol, Caffeine, and Chemicals.

Hard to believe, I know. Truth is never pretty, but it sure does free you!

Want to try this with me? Message me for more information at wellwithjenn@yahoo.com — I look forward to hearing from you and helping you become a better you, one day at a time.

Be well and make it a great day!


Many Ways to Reach Out

Though I just started this blog very, very early this morning, I was told I need to “expand” my market and “reach out” to more people.  Being me, I took right to it. I’ve always loved networking group gatherings: meeting new people, exchanging sweaty handshakes, all in the comfort of a room with a very weird mingling of scents. No doubt, having a contact or two in just about every field can be a wonderful addition to your repertoire.

So, since I can’t meet you in person and shake your hand (HA!), and I like to make people happy, I’m sharing “expansion” and “reaching out” in my way: a list of websites for you — all in one spot.

Pinterest:  I absolutely LOVE the idea of the online cork board.  So does my husband…saves him from PILES of paper!  www.pinterest.com/wellwithjenn
Instagram: Hello?! Facebook for pictures, right? Love it and its super ease of use. www.instagram.com/wellwithjenn
Facebook: Yep, I’ve got that, too. www.facebook.com/wellwithjenn

Remember: I was told that today. This morning. So when you visit me on Instagram, there are only a few pictures and followers. Your support and encouragement keep me motivated to keep on keeping on! I look forward to meeting you!

OH…and be sure to leave me a comment with some way to “meet” you, too!

Be well and make it a great day!
