MLK Jr. Day!

Today (and everyday) it is important that we remember to spread the message of love and togetherness! Be the BEST you that you can be and uplift those around you to do the same. We still live in a society that is very divided at times, so it is important to be a pioneer for change and equality, and follow in the footsteps of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who saw the beauty in ALL people.

Skinny secrets pt. 1

After my book feature in "Secrets of successful women" a lot of you have been sending tweets and emails, asking me to share more details on how I stay skinny and my health/beauty routines so I'll share them now. In general, I stay skinny due to age, genetics and an EXTREMELY fast metabolism. However, my eating pattern also aides in that. Instead of eating huge meals, I eat tiny little bits over the course of the entire day which keeps the metabolism moving. Also, I naturally eat very, very slow. Ask anyone who knows me and they will tell you that it takes me twice as long as everyone else to finish a meal. You end up getting full before you eat too much! The only other person in my family that eats as slowly as I do is also very skinny.

I don't like soda, cake or baked goods (except the occasional donut and cupcake) so those are calories and fat that I never have to worry about. I practice yoga regularly and I do 5 minute ab, leg and booty workouts everyday at 7:30. For those who have asked, I am 5'7" and 115 pounds. I don't carry much weight in my stomach or upper body at all, my legs tend to carry most of my weight.

Now for my favorite part...BEAUTY! I take vitamins EVERY SINGLE DAY. I take Nature's own "Hair, Skin and Nails" because I wasn't born with the best skin conditions (I suffer from sensitive skin and eczema) and En Natural "Vibrance" vitamins for healthy hair which are vegetarian, multi-vitamins with no binders or fillers, 100% natural!
