illuminator

Jul 31 2015

Y’all!  THIS RIGHT HERE!  Hands down BY FAR the best illuminator I’ve ever used.  SOLD OUT in store at Sephora, but available online!  I can’t even begin to describe the finish of the powder… and a lot goes a long way!

I used it on this bride – it just highlights and lifts the cheek bones for that beach bronzed look.  Soft white gold with a pinky peach undertone pop!  By far the best I’ve ever used… sorry MAC!  Leaves your skin with the softest glow… a glow that I struggle to get with all of my clients.  It’s infused with light-reflecting pearls that beautifully catch the light, allowing your favorite features to pop.

Happy Friday, my beauty lovers!

my weight loss

Jul 29 2015

People have asked… so I will share! 🙂

This nutritional cleanse changed my life!

I started this new lifestyle on January 5th and in my first 30 days I lost 15lbs.   I honestly started it as a way to lose the baby weight (after a year of struggling to get the weight off), but it quickly changed my life in more ways than just weight loss.  

It’s taught me how to eat right.  I tried going cold turkey (like most people do) attempted many, many times doing Whole30 and Paleo.  I met with a nutritionist, but it just wasn’t enough.  I didn’t have the discipline or the time to meal prep the way that I needed to. 

My body needed this… and I needed to see immediate weight loss in order to continue to push forward on this healthy new track and transition into clean eating habits.  Within 4 days on this cleanse, my food cravings and alcohol cravings were almost completely eliminated. 

This lifestyle of an alkaline diet and releasing toxicity on a cellular level has transformed my health.  When you balance your body with nutritional cleanse you experience positive effects on fat loss, cellulite, energy levels, skin appearance, aging, fatigue, stress, sleep, stamina, cravings, strength, weight management and mental clarity. 

(keep reading…)

Lindsey Regan Thorne_Nutritional Cleanse

On January 5th (over a year after having my son) I started at 134lbs.  30 days later I weighed 119lbs (keep in mind I’m barely 5′-2″).  Through pregnancy I at least gained 45lbs… I say “at least” because I stopped looking at the scale when I saw the 45lbs gain.

The idea is simple.  We begin by loading the body with optimal nutrition in order to allow the body to do what it needs to do – which is cleanse out toxins.  Once toxicity is out, you can once again free your body to perform in optimal capacity in everything (including weight loss).  Too many people are trying to lose weight by cutting calories out of an already nutritionally bankrupt food system, and that approach does not work.   The body goes into starvation mode!  Its true, you may drop weight initially – BUT once you reintroduce food back into your system, you will just gain it back… maybe more.  This happens because the body is not getting what it needs nutritionally.  Isagenix, at its core, the system is one that really is about making the body alkaline, reducing inflammation and boosting the immune system.

Easy to follow and YES(!!!) you do eat.

– 2 shake meal replacements per day

– healthy snacks every 2 hours

– 1 clean/ healthy meal

– gallon of water

Did I cheat???… absolutely!  It’s life and that’s the beauty behind this program, you’re not supposed to be perfect! 

Lindsey Regan Thorne_02

That’s me on vacation after 40 days into the program!

The weight literally melted off for me!  I never thought I’d see a bikini in my future again!  This is a health program offering an easy way to get the vital nutrition, minerals, vitamins, anti-oxidants, pro-biotics and essential and critical unbroken amino acids into our bodies.  These essential elements not only heal our bodies, but help us put on lean muscle mass and are the building blocks to creating the neurotransmitters in our brain to keep us feeling well!  The cellular cleanse is not a fast for your body… but a way to absorb the nutrients, allow your digestive system to rest and to rid the toxins and replenish your cells!  It is about putting the essential nutrition back into your body.  Together they create the cornerstone of continuous, ongoing good health!  Putting nutrition into a toxic body is senseless – nutritional cleanse is the only way!

Here’s a GREAT video to watch!

I have my hubby hooked too!  We occasionally give Henry 1/2 a shake as well!

How do I maintain…?

Six+ months into the program, I only do 1 (sometimes 2) shakes per day.  I haven’t completed a cleanse since February and for the most part I’ve kept the weight off.  I’ve been on some hormonal medicines that have spiked scale, but nothing crazy!

Bride

This is one of the gals in our group.  30 day difference!

Please email me if you’re interested in learning more about this program!  It’s truly amazing!  I’ve got a group of amazing women that I’m coaching and I do enjoy this so much!

Life lately

Jul 28 2015

Hi ladies!  I’m been such a slacker in the blogging department… I really do miss it!  It’s also going through a mini blog facelift in the next few weeks, so hopefully the new look will give me a little kick in the booty to continue to blog.

Life isn’t very glamorous or eventful these days.  As usual my days are consumed with sweet brides, makeup, too much hairspray and snuggles from my guys!  Henry’s at a really fun age right now and I just want to freeze time.

Here’s what our last two weeks of life have looked like.

Limiting my time on social media feeds.  I love everything about Facebook and Instagram, but lately, every time I surf the feeds, there’s quite a bit of negativity.   That negativity has can be contagious, so I’ve taken a few steps back and realized how much I’ve been missing out.  So much of my day with Henry and John is spent scrolling through others lives, instead of soaking up the moments of my own.  Sounds rediculous, but I never realized how much time I really spent on FB + IG until recently.

Truth!

We spent our Friday night eating all you can eat crab legs + sea food, sipping cocktails, listening to live music and playing around on the putting green with our little man.  Did you see my video of him “putting” on Instagram?  It’s the cutest!

We spend so much time during the weekends at the neighborhood pool.  He loves the water!

My sis + me!

On Sunday, Mommy even got some time for herself!  I had a wedding early that morning, left the house around 5:30am (whew!), so it was nice to lay on a chair in the shade for… 5 minutes (thanks hubby)! 😉

Around the house with my ninja!  He’s all about his mama, which includes crawling all over me!  He’s my little bestie!

Henry’s golf polos are from Old Navy (only $5) and then I have them monogrammed!

On Sunday after the pool we played 9 holes of golf that evening.  For someone who doesn’t particularly care for sports, I enjoyed it and did surprisingly well! 😉  It was so much fun with Henry and John!  I loved watching our little man run up to each hole and knock them in.   For right now, this 1-1/2 year old loves the game… he’ll walk into the house run into the playroom saying “gowf” (golf)!  He really had a good time!

Too cute not to share… Henry’s clubs + puppy!

Lindsey Regan Thorne_20

Turning over a new leaf and playing sports… for my boys!  This is big.  I played kickball once (wayyyyyy back in the day) and the only time I made it all the way back to home plate (is that what you call it?!?) was when someone lifted me and carried me around the bases.  Poor buddy can’t handle the sunscreen in his eyes.  Seriously though, this really was a fun family day!

Lindsey Regan Thorne_17

Speaking of sports… I love my new lipgloss + nail polish!

Lindsey Regan Thorne_13

A few playdates make mommy’s heart so happy!  Love seeing my boy with his friends!  It’s especially fun for me (any parent) to watch their children play and interact with others.

Henry has a new girlfriend…

Living in this dress (it’s actually a shirt, but I’m short and it hits above the knees) this summer!  This kimono goes on top of everything!

Loving my new bag from Hayden Olivia Shop.

Last weekend we enjoyed a going away party of one of my oldest Charlotte friends!  She’s moving her family to England!

Soaking up as much time as I can with Henry this summer – loving our weekly mommy/ son dates!

Love using silicone muffin tins to hold Henry (and friends) snacks.

Hope everyone has a wonderful week!  I’ll be back tomorrow… goal is to blog every.single.day this week!  Oh boy! 😉
