Hey Hey Gang!
I just wanted to give you a little update! In January I decided to expand my Virtual Assistant business. I was always getting requests from entrepreneurs wondering if I had time to help them with their behind the scenes business… So of course my brain got to working and I decided to create Cakewalk Lifestyle Management Solutions aka Team Cakewalk! Business is great and I LOVE the connections I am making with like minded entrepreneurs.
As I was diving into really becoming a biz owner and expanding my biz, I discovered another passion… Coaching and Training. I absolutely LOVE helping people get to the next level. I love empowering women and moms and not allowing them to settle. You truly CAN have it all, if you want it bad enough. So in May 2015 I launched my personal brand, The Real Melissa Ceja. I offer Lifestyle Biz Coach services and trainings to help you gain the confidence you need to grow your little biz idea into something that can bring home the bacon! It’s SOOOOO fun to be able to work with people that have that hustle in them! I seriously LOVE it!
So if you are looking for business training or trying to get on that entrepreneur game, then let’s get connected on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter!
I will still be sharing my #momlife beautiful chaos here! ❤
our new menu plan 😉
HI! Well call us suckers for documentaries or call it facing reality. The hubby and I were watching a documentary about weight loss and “rebooting” our bodies. The one that captured our attention was called “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead” by Joe Cross. I don’t want to go into a lot of detail about what it was all about but basically Joe Cross traveled miles influencing A LOT of over weight and unhealthy people. He had a chronic disease and was all around unhealthy. He decided to do a 60 day juice fast. We were amazed by his results. His disease… gone! This captured our attention and got us researching it and thinking if we could possibly do this…
Then we watch yet ANOTHER documentary about our diets in the U.S…. Let’s just say: NO BUENO! This documentary was called “Forks Over Knives.” This film examines the claim that most diseases can be controlled or cured just by our diets. Ummm TALK ABOUT EYE OPENING!
After discussing this more we decided that we really need and want to do something about our health. It is way over due! So… We are deciding to do a “No More Dirty in 30 Challenge!” 30 days of a semi juice fast, no dairy and no red meat for 30 days. Breakfast and Lunch will consist of homemade juices with fresh fruits or veggies for snacks. We will finish the day with dinner, consisting of lean meat, veggies and some brown rice or beans.
We LOVE our juicer and have used it quite a few times but this puppy will be takin it to ANUTHA LEVEL starting tomorrow. It squeezes out so much juice compared to some other juicers! And really we remember how fit Jack LaLanne was… he had’ve been on to something! 😉
Our new Lunchboxes
I got these great new water bottles from Target. They hold a whopping 56oz and have a little freezer tube thing to keep everything cold! Super excited to try this out.
We both know that this will be a challenge but we NEED and have to do this! We are both committed to this and determined to make a change. It’s not just about weight loss anymore… It’s about getting healthy, and yes there is a difference!
Stay tuned for daily posts, with juice recipes and an update on our progress!
