Looking for a Good Read? Well here it is!

Ever find a book that you just cannot put down, well for me this is that book! Your Holistically Hot Transformation, by Marissa Vicario.

Honest, Easy and Very Thought Provoking.

One statement got me thinking:  “willpower isn’t a reliable weight loss tool”

I repeated this several times, and realized that I do this a lot. If I don’t prep my food, or forget to pack a healthy meal when traveling, I think “well I will just resist any temptations”.   I cannot tell you how many times I have forgotten to pack a lunch for work and in my large office which vendors bring in not so healthy lunches, and I see a warm bread stick and say, I will just have one and realize I put 3 on my plate. Well I decided to use Marissa book as a tool like she suggests, promotes and provides in her book  and see if I could develop some new amazing healthy transformations on my own Holistically Hot Transformation.

Best part of the book is the easy steps Marissa provides to help, aid and move towards your own Holistically Hot Transformation.

At the end of the book Marissa provides ways to incorporate all of her knowledge into your every day life.  Use smaller plates to keep portions smaller, take the stairs instead of the elevator to incorporate exercise into your daily routine when you don’t have time to go to the gym, drink water throughout the day so stay hydrates.  But most importantly, Marissa wants you to stop obsessing – don’t focus on the scale, don’t worry about being perfect.  Just be you.  Be holistically hot!

This is a great read for nutrition and health novices because the essentials are broken down in a way that is easy to understand. Your Holistically Hot Transformation includes recipes and a grocery list of food for each food group that should be present on your plate. Whether you’re looking to learn about nutrition and a healthy lifestyle or looking for tips on how to maintain your already healthy lifestyle, Your Holistically Hot Transformation can benefit you.

From the Author

Health and wellness has become more mainstream in recent years, so there’s a lot of nutrition information available from a multitude of sources, most of it competing. Because I studied nutrition,I can sort through it all, but what about the woman who is just getting started on her nutrition journey? I noticed that when I started working with a client,she was almost always confused and misinformed about how to eat and mindfulness and self-care parts were most often completely missing. I wanted to simplify everything for the woman who is just starting out, confused to the point of paralysis or has tried everything to no avail and wants to start over with a more balanced approached. I remember being that woman at one time, so I wrote the book I would have wanted to read. Sometimes we need someone to reassure us it doesn’t have to be so complicated and that everything is going to be OK.That’s Your Holistically Hot Transformation.

Biography

Marissa Vicario, AADP, is an award-winning, board-certified Integrative Health and Nutrition Coach, blogger and Women’s Health & Lifestyle Expert.

After spending a decade and a half as a junk food vegetarian and raging sugar addict, Marissa Vicario discovered whole foods and the way they made her look and feel. Her desire to live a cleaner, healthier lifestyle was so strong, she broke out her hand-me-down pots and pans and dull cutting knives and taught herself to cook in the tiny kitchen of her Manhattan studio apartment. In the process, she learned that food changes everything and single-handedly transformed the trajectory of her life from the inside out. It wasn’t long before she decided to study holistic nutrition and make it a career.

Happy Gardening Season! 

Summer is here, and so is gardening season. I love to plant annual flowers and keep hanging baskets in my yard for color and all summer enjoyment. With this beauty comes real physical pain. Well, I guess it does not have to be painful, however, I do tend to go overboard and injure myself from time to time. From cuts and bruises to sore muscles and back pain, beauty comes at a price to some.

Gardening is a favorite hobby of mine, even if I experience some pain and minor injuries from it. Here is a  typical injury from cutting branches and weeding below.

I applied Max Arnica on the bruised area with the easy glide on roller and it did provide relief from the pain. I also used on my lower back after a long day of weeding my flower beds and watering my plants.

It’s a perfect size to keep on hand and really convenient to use with the roll on applicator.

My Thoughts:

I really recommend this product for use on sensitive skin, I recently had a bout of poison Ivy and my skin was really sensitive after it healed. I applied it several times and loved that it did not irritate or inflame the area. So glad Zim’s asked me to try this product, I now have a new favorite go-to Natural Pain relief topical product rather than the OTC medication.
