Day 2…Miracle Pill?

Most of my friends and family know I LOVED the original Happy Coffee, D.O.S.E., when it first came out. The energy, appetite suppressant and cravings were virtually gone. Then, the FDA updated what could be in U.S. supplements and our awesome coffee turned dud…at least for me.

Fast forward to almost a year later and they (same company) have created a new supplement that is giving me ALL the same benefits as that original coffee! I am running virtually in circles getting things accomplished with this energy, and I’m not hungry! It is only day 2, so I will keep track of what I’m eating and if the energy changes from day to day, but I can say that I slept great last night, and the energy was just as awesome today as day 1.

Welcome to Elevate Max+! Even the bottle says “Magic in a Capsule,” which I honestly had not read until taking this picture. So far, I agree!!! I have started at one capsule per day with 8 oz. of water and a few bites of something small or breakfast depending on my timing (I try to intermittent fast as well). I will continue to update with my progress as the days go on, but the true test for me will be gauging my energy, appetite and cravings after a full week and beyond. Stay tuned!

If you want more info. you can find this and more at Elevate with Stephanie. I kept my link from Happy Coffee days (and I still like the XanthoMax!). Happy to answer any questions you have, but I am more excited to have you follow my journey and see where this path takes me.



Ah, Plato…

I know…I never write, I never call. :). This one resonated this morning, so I am taking a few moments to put my thoughts on “paper.”

Every morning I read Hoda Kotb’s quote of the day in her book, I Really Needed This Today. Then I write in my StartToday journal by Rachel Ray. I know, sounds like plugs for the books, but it’s really about finding what works for you in setting your personal goals and jump starting your day. For me, this is my power-punch combo pack that I do EVERY MORNING.

Anyway, today’s quote from Hoda is “The beginning is the most important part of the work.” ~Plato WOW! First, a good reminder of why Plato was/is one of my Dad’s favorite philosophers. Second, Plato is right. We (by we, I mean me) are constantly saying today is the first day of the rest of my life…or starting fresh today…or for me, it’s a do over! No matter how you dice it, if you don’t START something, you’ll never reach your end goal.

Short and sweet for today, but the take-away is GET STARTED! Create a new habit, break an old one, learn something new! Whatever you see in your future you have to take the first step and BEGIN to reach your grand finale. Happy Humpday!
