In collaboration with StyleMeFIT, I have been filming my new video series titled “New Year, New You” which is all about bettering yourself for the new year. Those who know me know that I am a true believer in sustaining a healthy and balanced life through fitness and ultimately taking care of yourself. Whether it is through workout out, eating well, staying chic, or inner balance, there is something about keeping a balance in life that keeps me happy and satisfied.
Therefore, the second episode of my series is “Food Swaps: Eat This, Not That” where I chat about my favorite healthy food options for some of those not-so-healthy food or condiment choices that many of us make. Admit it, you’re guilty of it too.

It’s been a little while since I posted an episode of my “Fab to Fit” series, but I discovered this hidden little gem as I was going through my video archives. What better time to showcase “How to get Motivated” than right after the New Year? Sometimes we find ourselves getting “stuck” or distracted by other activities that we have going on in our lives that we forget to focus on what’s important. Therefore, today’s post is all about getting motivated and entering the New Year with a plan!
My Steps to Getting Motivated:
1) Make a Plan
2) Set Goals or a Time Frame
3) Go into it with an Open Mind
4) Stay on Schedule – No Distractions!
5) Create a Mood Board
6) Build a Team or Partnership
7) Reward Yourself
What do you like to do to get yourself motivated?
The time has come when we all sit back and think about what we can do, now that we have entered the New Year, to better ourselves with a fresh start to the year. A few of my favorite things to do are to: 1) Do a juice cleanse, 2) Clean out closets or drawers, 3) Donate clothes that I don’t need or wear, 4) Set goals, and 5) Clean the entire home. There’s something refreshing about getting rid of clutter and things that are simply taking up space in the home. It’s also a great feeling to give back to the less fortunate, which sets the year off to a motivational start.
What are some things that you do to begin the new year?
For those of who aren’t too familiar with the Beachbody brand or Shaun T, let’s just say that the workouts will have one sweating in places he/she didn’t know sweat could appear and crying by the end of the session. Needless to say, I was invited to check out Sweat USA powered by Reebook as part of my “Fab to Fit Series” when the nation’s first all-star fitness festival arrived in Miami. With over 3,000 fitness enthusiasts in attendance and over 100 exhibitors showcasing their innovative products/services, it was one of the most inspirational and motivating events that I’ve attended.
The genesis for the annual Sweat USA Miami Beach Fitness Festival is to expose consumers to the latest trends, options and resources available on the market today in the health, fitness and wellness genres, through bringing the industry, and its leaders, together under one roof within a city whose residents seek a healthy and active lifestyle.

As essential as fashion is to a girl’s life, so is maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Therefore, I decided to put together a “Fab to Fit” series dedicated to wellness and how I maintain a healthy appearance both inside and out. Many people ask me what my workout routine is or what types of food to eat in order to live a healthy life, which is the motivation behind this series.
