Are you sick and tired of being tired and sluggish? Don’t like the way you feel or the way extra pounds that says Hi every time you look in the mirror? And, you know you won’t stick with or can’t workout. Then, this coffee is for you. Exercise in a cup!
I have been drinking this coffee and love the way I look and feel. I had heart valve replacement a couple of years ago and gained over 30lbs in the hospital. I did loose some of it when I came home but not all of it. When you’re used to being one size and can’t seem to reach that weight anymore, it charges all types of emotions.
A friend of mine introduced me to this Smart Coffee and it changed my life. I believe in this product. I’ve lost 16lbs so far and feel great. That’s why I want to introduce you it.
With the Holiday’s fast approaching, YOU could be at your idea weight for the Holiday’s!
Looking GREAT! Feeling GREAT! Enjoying GREAT!

Other benefits to this coffee are energy and mental clarity which was something I didn’t expect until I noticed the change in my thinking. Weight loss is only one of the benefits of drinking the coffee or chocolate. This smart coffee works with your body to produce and balance your own bodies hormones making you feel more positive. It doesn’t make you feel weird or dopey. You find yourself laughing at the smaller things in life, letting go of little annoyances that once irritated you.
The Natural Hormones
Dopamine —> the reward hormone.
That feeling (oomph) you get from eating chocolate when you’re stressed or when a bunch of people leave you a great review… that is dopamine.
Oxytocin —> the bonding hormone.
The first time you saw your sweetie and you drew in a breath releasing it slowly knowing he/she had to be yours. Or, held your baby for the first time and hearing the cooing he or she gave you.
Serotonin —> the great regulator.
Serotonin helps regulate mood, social behavior, appetite, desire, sleep, memory… Did I mention sleep?
Endorphins —> the relief hormone.
This is the good stuff that your body produces to relieve stress and pain. It can also make you feel euphoric (without the worry about addiction or overdose!) Ever heard of a runner’s high? That would be endorphins at work.

Is Sleep Your Companion or Your Enemy? 6 Tips To Get Better Sleep

Is Sleep your companion or your enemy?

Sleep plays an important role in our physical health. It is involved in the healing and repair of your heart and blood vessels. Constant lack of sleep is linked to an increased risk of heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and even stroke.
Stress from everyday life, family duties, and unexpected challenges can interfere with a good night’s sleep. Even though you may not be able to control all the stress factors, you can try the following tips to encourage better sleep routines. These simple tips may seem obvious but sometimes we need to just be reminded.

sleep-3888443__340[2]

 

Start with these simple tips.
1. Develop a Sleep Schedule
Some studies show that your deep sleep should at least be 20% of your overall sleep. Which means that since most adults need 8-9 hours of sleep, they will need about 1.6-1.8 hours of deep sleep to fully function the next day.
Go to bed and get up around the same time every day. Try to keep your schedule as close as possible even on the weekend. Keeping regular or as close to a regular schedule reinforces your body’s sleep-wake cycle.
If you don’t fall asleep within about 20 minutes after going to bed, get up and leave your bedroom. Do something relaxing. For instance reading or listening to soothing music. Try not to drink anything. It will only disrupt your sleep by having to use the bathroom, then go back to bed when you get sleepy.
By staying in your bedroom reading or listening to music your brain associates the bedroom with these activities instead of sleeping that’s why I suggest leaving the bedroom until your sleepy.
2. Observe What You Eat and Drink
Don’t go to bed hungry or stuffed. Avoid heavy or large meals within a couple of hours of bedtime. The stuffy feeling will interrupt your efforts to get comfortable enough to fall asleep.
Nicotine, caffeine, and alcohol can affect your sleep patterns too. The stimulating effects of nicotine and caffeine take hours to wear off keeping you from a good night’s sleep. And even though alcohol might make you feel sleepy, it can disrupt sleep later in the night by having to go to the restroom.
3. Create a Restful Atmosphere
Create a room that’s ideal for sleeping. A cool, dark, and quiet room makes it easier to fall asleep. Exposure to light could make it challenging to fall asleep. Avoid prolonged use of blue screens just before bedtime. Blackout shades or curtains can keep unwanted light out.
4. Limit Daytime Naps
Too many naps during the day can interfere with nighttime sleep. If you choose to nap, limit yourself to shorter ones and avoid late naps.
If you work nights, however, you might need to a nap late in the day before work to help make up your sleep debt.
5. Include Physical activity in your daily routine
Regular physical activity can promote better sleep. Avoid being active too close to bedtime, though.
Spending time outside every day might be helpful, too. Vitamin D from the sun can promote sleep.
6. Manage your Worrying
Worry seems to be an enemy at night when you lay your head on the pillow. Every thought, concern, or idea seems to want to expose itself causing you to focus on it instead of falling asleep.
Try and replace the worries with positive thinking. Focus on the good things in life even if you’re going through the worst of times. Yes. It’s easier said than done but trying it can help.
Serotonin is a hormone found in various parts of the body, including the brain and the stomach. This hormone plays an important role in several bodily functions, including regulation of mood, regulation of appetite, learning and memory and regulation of sleep. It is sometimes called the happy chemical because it promotes wellbeing and happiness.
Our Smart Coffee contains serotonin among other natural hormones:
Dopamine —> the reward hormone.
That feeling (oomph) you get from eating chocolate when you’re stressed or when a bunch of people loves your blog post… that is dopamine.
Oxytocin —> the bonding hormone.
The first time you saw your sweetie and you drew in a breath releasing it slowly knowing he/she had to be yours. Or, hold your baby for the first time and hearing the cooing he or she gave you.
Serotonin —> the great regulator.
Serotonin helps regulate mood, social behavior, appetite, desire, sleep, memory… Did I mention sleep?
Endorphins —> the relief hormone.
This is the good stuff that your body produces to relieve stress and pain.

National Sponge Cake Day!

National Sponge Cake Day!

cake-886612_960_720[1]
What better desert to eat on a hot day, than sponge cake with cool whipped cream and cold strawberries! YUM!
Today is National Sponge Cake day, a day when we can celebrate the sweet cake day by eating the treat shamelessly!
The sponge cake was created in the mid- 16th century by an Italian chef for a Spanish lord. The first version of the cake was more like biscuits, then it spread to England where they used beaten eggs to make the cake rise. It is widely written that the Victoria Sponge was Queen Victoria’s favorite cake.
So, bake a sponge cake or buy one, dollop some cool whipped cream and dash with strawberries on it and enjoy! Something that will go great with the desert is Skinny Coffee to make it a guilt free day!
Be Blessed,
Brenda

Happy Underwear Day!

Happy Underwear Day!
Let me brief-ly wish you a Happy Underwear Day!
Undie’s wasn’t always called underwear. Throughout history they were called braies, knickers, trouser, and even pants. The word for pantie was created for ladies as a shortened version of the word pants.

equipment-3270790_960_720[1]
Did you know that underwear has a job?
• Underwear keeps you warm.
• Underwear literally has you covered if there is a wardrobe malfunction. Especially, if a brisk-y wind whips up that short dress, or if you eaten a tad bit too much and bend over expressing the seems in the backside of your pants.
• Underwear makes you laugh! They come in different colors and patterns, shapes and sizes, silk or lace, plain or characterized so, why wear some that you secretly know someone would laugh if they seen them.
For you women out there, celebrate today by going and get that sensual pair of underwear that will make you feel beautiful. And, for the men, go get that pair that is whimsical or the ones that make you feel powerful even if no one sees them. Nothing says confidence more than a new pair of undies!
And, if you have a little muffin top that seems to rim the band of your undie’s, I have smart coffee that can curb your appetite. This coffee is amazing, it’s more than weight loss, it enhances mental clarity, contains Nootropics, which helps deliver three of the happiness hormones, it has powerful antioxidants to improve blood flow and energy. I would love to send you more information, just give me a BREIF shout out in the comments!

Happy Mustard Day! It’s not just for Hot Dogs!

Happy National Mustard Day! It’s not just for Hot Dogs anymore!
Mustard isn’t just for hot dogs. With all the different types, it’s the condiment for creativity. You can add honey Dijon to your favorite casserole, bake up some mustard potatoes, or glaze a ham with the tasty spice.
There were several holidays today, but I chose mustard day because God thought of mustard as an important condiment that he mentions it several times in the bible. There is the parable of the mustard seed. It is the smallest seed that grows into a massive tree that even the birds of heaven can rest in the shadow of it, a lesson parallel to the kingdom of God. Another parable, Faith as a mustard seed, where we start out with a measure of faith and the more we use our faith the greater our faith becomes. A mustard seed represents growth, dependence, and faith.
Did you know, mustard is considered a spice from the cabbage family?
There are several healthy benefits of eating mustard. Several studies have found that the elements discovered in mustard seeds can stop cancer cell growth. It’s often used as a remedy for muscle pains and certain types of skin disorders. Mustard seeds come with high levels of calcium, magnesium, and potassium. It is also a low-calorie, low-sugar alternative to other condiments.

Some Benefits of Mustard
• It could help fight uterine cancer
• Help improve cardiovascular health
• Assist in red blood cell formation
• Helps improve bone strength
• Sleep better at night
• Fight against Psoriasis
• Helps promote healthy-looking skin and hair.
A great tasting beverage you can enjoy with your mustard dish is Smart Coffee! It also has benefits. This coffee is amazing, it’s more than weight loss, it enhances mental clarity, contains Nootropics, which helps deliver three of the happiness hormones, it has powerful antioxidants to improve blood flow and energy. Weight loss is a benefit of drinking the coffee.

Happiness in a cup,

Smart Coffee! Is it really smart?

SMART COFFEE! Is it really smart?
Hi! I would like to introduce you to Smart Coffee. It is a great tasting rich Colombian roasted coffee that’s giving people incredible weight loss and energy! The Nootropics in smart coffee are all-natural amino acids that are mostly found in protein-rich foods but aren’t always easy to get from diet alone.
The ingredients in the coffee are combined to help control cravings and appetite without feeling run-down. And, the thermogenic components and appetite suppressants work to help burn fat. The Nootropics are powerful cognitive enhancers that help improve mental fog.
So, is this coffee smart? I think so since it works with your body to control cravings, curb your appetite, and give you amazing energy without the jitters.

Dream coffee cup
To answer a few questions, you may have:
There are different ways to fix the coffee.
• You can mix one scoop of the coffee with 8oz of hot water then drink it black or add your sweeteners and creams. A lot of people use a sugar substitute and flavored creamer.
• Mix one scoop of the coffee with your normal coffee stir and drink.
• Mix one scoop of coffee with your favorite hot chocolate. It tastes similar to a coffee latte.
• Mix as a smoothie. Add one scoop coffee to your favorite low-fat smoothie.
• Mix one scoop coffee with milk, and peanut butter powder. It tastes similar to a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup.
Is there a decaf?
There isn’t a decaf option for the coffee but people who don’t drink coffee or sensitive to caffeine, drink the Choclevate! It’s like a chocolate shake with the same benefits.
This coffee is amazing and if you would like to try it, I have $15 trial packs. The packs contain a 3-day one scoop stick. For the trail packs, you can leave a post or email me at scruggs3@nctc.com.
