It’s my BIRTHDAY MONTH!! Where my scorpios at!!? Scorpio is exotic and magnetic, as deep as the sea, and, depending on our mood, as calm or as tempestuous.

♏️

Scorpio likes clear endings and beginnings, with no grey areas in between.

♏️

Scorpio tends to be possessive of their loved ones and also find it extremely difficult to trust people and are therefore very secretive.

♏️

We are lovers AND fighters depending on which side of ours you’re on. We will will take secrets to grave unless we are driven to do otherwise, or unless we think you’ve wronged us.

♏️

We are intuitive AF. We know something’s going to happen before it does and can easily read people .

♏️

We tend to be self-destructive because we are fearless and stubborn even when life gets a little tricky. We’ll take one to the chin and keep going.

♏️

Self-confident, resourceful, and strong. Where my scorpios at? 🎂🍾🎉Happy Birthday, boo ❤

The Skinny on the Ultimate Reset – Day 15

I’ve been feeling really down the past couple days! Nothing awful. Just like “meh” so a day of hair and brows (and let’s be honest… mustache manicuring hehehehhe!!) and I feel good as new!!! Turning 43 has me feeling all sorts of ways and through this cleanse as I’m emotionally unloading a ton of blocks I feel lighter and less stressed than I have in YEARS!

1/4 tsp. Himalayan salt (optional)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Scrub potato; pierce several times with a fork and place on center rack. (My note – place a foiled lined cookie sheet under on the next rack to catch drippings) Bake for 35-45 minutes, or until fork tender. Remove from the over and cut a 1 1/2 inch cross in the center of the potato. Season with oil, salt, and a seasoning blend if desired.

Garlic Veggies – 1 serving (I doubled this so I could eat it tomorrow)

The Skinny on the Ultimate Reset- 2 week transformation party!!

Eekkkkk down 7.7 lbs of bloat and misery!! It’s amazing how much food you mindlessly eat throughout the day and for me personally the amount of times I “treat myself.”

Unhappy with the results of the last time you tried to lose a few pounds?

All it takes is ONE time with the right coach and a group of like-minded ladies to completely change your path and your life 💫

I should know. It’s exactly how I found success in my health journey. As soon as I found the system & program with a group of women working towards things like; sticking to their nutrition, pushing past energy struggles, I would literally wake up everyday with purpose and STICK-TO-IT-TIVENESS!!

It didn’t happen overnight, I’m not trying to fool you. It took failing forward and finding my health blocks, but after a while I figured out exactly what you need to REALLY level up. It’s a 5 phase plan that I’m teaching in my upcoming lifestyle accountability group….

http://www.shakomomma.com/missionimpossible

► Planning: How to design a plan and a pace you can ACTUALLY live with and STICK to

► Prep: Cut down time in other areas of your life like cleaning the kitchen 3 times a day (every time you make a meal)

► Live Calls: Exclusive group video chats to share struggles & celebrate success

► Post-Challenge Check in’s : Accountability beyond just the 30 days of results

► 24/7 Coaching: Unlike conventional coaching you have a person here for you each step of the way (ME)

The KEY to sustaining weight loss is sustained efforts. No quick fixes and the secret to getting immediate results is doing something you’ve never done before or your money back. Does this sound like something you’re ready for?

The Skinny on the Ultimate Reset – Day 13

Phew! Today I was IN THE ZONE!! To say I’ve battled every negative thought and emotion every minute of every day is an understatement. I’ve tried to have temper tantrum’s over the food only to realize it’s a breeze and I actually constantly feel full. I’ve tried to say it’s too hard to shop, prep, plan when in reality I save more time by doing so. And probably to be honest a lot more money!

I keep giving myself that moment to just break and make nachos or pick up a pizza but then I realize the number of women counting on me and the number of times I’ve quit on myself — and there’s no way I’m giving up on one of those things this time!

I thought I would be a lot more emotional at this point of the 21 days just from what I had read so far from others who’s gone through it but honestly I have no complaints, worry, emotional break out or bad feelings to speak of.

I attribute that success to plenty of Epsom salt and essential oil detox baths, as well as, resting whenever I need to! Meaning sleeping whenever I feel like it and going to bed early! 2 things I NEVER allow myself to do regularly. I have been pushing so hard this year on my goals I wasn’t recognizing that it was a detriment to my physical and emotional well being. Definitely going to remind myself when I’m feeling worn down that I need to do things daily to feed my soul and take care of me.

Here’s the Skinny on Day 13:

Wake up w/20 oz of distilled water (Mineralize added) and continue drinking this ALL day just not until 30 mins after a meal for digestion purposes!

I’m having tea every morning at his point because it’s cold as balls all of a sudden now and I can’t even handle the freezing temps I’m waking up to! I even pulled out my heating blanket for sitting on the couch!

Slight rebellion going on. I’m not super stoked on some upcoming recipes and this zero to no carbs (from rice and grain) thing is KILLING me. I use carbs to power up my creative energy and learning to source that Out has been HARD!! That being said I didn’t eat what was called for and instead modified this to show you that if you have grace & patience with yourself you are more likely to see this to the end rather than quit!!!!

I chose butternut squash in Italian herbs, steamed broccoli &carrots, and the teensiest scoop of rice imaginable just to soothe me and remind me that I CAN do this for 8 more days!!!!

5 self love tips for you to share!!

The Skinny on the Ultimate Reset – Day 12

SUNDAY IS THE HARDEST FREAKING DAY!! I want to drink Moscow Myles and eat nachos allllllll dayyyyyyyyy!!!

This is also about the time in my progress that I’m like “eh, feel great in my clothes, mostly okay naked. I can eat what I want now.” So wrong. So. Dead. Wrong. It’s a measure of self-sabotage and I can’t possibly keep up this cycle. Working through so many emotions this weekend figuring out WHY I want to feed my feelings with salt & fat. I have a lot of anxiety about family matters right now and while I’m not completely ready to share them I do want you to know if you’re struggling you are not alone.

Ever realize how we crave different types of food as the seasons change? Like salads in the summer and soups, stews and potatoes in the fall/winter? That’s because our body intuitively knows what’s best for it and craves the right food at the right time. (Also why it’s been soooooo Hard to eat a Microgreen salad DAILY!!But!! When we eat seasonally and locally, our bodies are more in touch with the natural rhythm of the earth, connecting us more deeply to nature and allowing our bodies to be more balanced from the inside out.Information provided by The Energetics of Food, The Journal of Chinese MedicineRemember that when you’re choosing your food it’s not only about the calorie consumption but rather the quality of the food and what your body is inherently craving that plays a huge role. You are smarter than you think when it comes to your food choices! Always remember to trust yourself. XO, Tawnya JeanThe Skinny on the Ultimate Reset – What is it?

5 ways to fall in love with yourself

I love it when women love themselves. I love it when women are learning to love themselves. I love it when women inspire other women to love themselves.

My top 5 tips for how I learned to love myself.

1. Personal Development aka “self-help.”

I’ve always been a “self-help” junkie. Figuring out how past events have affected me in order to continue down a journey of emotional healing and huge personal growth.

Taking that step might help you realize it’s definitely hard, but it is very much worth it.

2. Make working out a priority and part of your routine.

Whether you’re already fit or you don’t really care too much about having a healthy lifestyle, working out seriously has so many benefits.

Personally, it motivates me to be productive, it helps clear my mind, and it reduces my stress levels.

Yes, it has been hard sometimes to keep active when there are days where I’m overcome with mommaxhaustion (mommas know what I’m talking about), but working out has become a part of me now. I feel weird when I don’t do it and when I finally do it and I experience the benefits I question why I didn’t just push through.

3. Disconnect.

I cannot stress this one enough. Honestly, I crave doing this more than I get the chance to. When I disconnect, I feel refreshed and rejuvenated. There’s something about putting my phone away in my bedroom and coming down into the kitchen to bake with the kids, sit in front of the fire and read, spend time writing or drawing, watching a movie — anything other than waiting for text dings or opening my social media accounts every five minutes.

4. Spend time doing things you love.

I started a blog years ago but didn’t really know my immediate idea for it. As I’ve been doing this 21 day detox it has been super liberating and kinda fulfilling to get lost in my feelings and just type them all out in my blog. Try to do whatever it is you like to do. Writing, singing, painting, running, anything. Even if you’ve never tried it before, do it and see where it takes you.

5. Be honest about what you think and feel.

I think if you’re like me you get caught up in caring so much about what other people think that you deny yourself so that you can keep them “happy.” This isn’t helping anyone I promise. At first, you’ll likely upset some and it will be hard to keep your courage, but in the end, you will gain respect and be surrounded by those you truly enjoy being around and you will live a way less stressful life.

You are such a beautiful, amazing, and capable person no matter how different your life may look from the picture the world has shown you.

I challenge you today to forget about looking like X person or trying to do X things because that’s what this person does. Whether you choose some of the things from my list or you take the time to come up with your own, love yourself by doing things that are good for you and make you happy.

Love yourself and love yourself hard. ❤
