Be Your Best You In 30-Days Or Less! #30DayChallenge

The temperatures are plummeting, the trees are starting to show their beautiful colors, and I made the best beef stew with made-from-scratch Everything Bagels and turkey chili with jalapeño cheese cornbread last week. Oh, yes, the cold air and comfort food are taking over my life. If I was in my early 20s when I could eat and drink anything I wanted and still be a size 4 I'd be stoked for comfort food and cornbread, unfortunately, since crashing into my 30s, everything I put in my mouth shows up on my ass, five minutes later


Long story short, it’s time to kick off the third annual winter season 30-Day Challenge: Beat Holiday weight gain before it beats you! If you’re a long time reader then you know how the 30-day challenges work. If not, get ready to have your life changed in 30-days. Actually, it’s more like 14 days. You’re gonna love this!

Today it is my honor, for the third year I row, to partner with TeaMi Natural Tea Blends (and other amazing stuff!) to kick off my Fall/Winter 30-Day Challenges! All opinions are my own. 

The first 30-day challenge requires a two-step approach. 

Step 1: Detox to get you clean, lean and ready for jeans. 

For the third year in a row, I’m sticking to my trusted and beloved, TeaMi 30-day Detox. There is no better, healthier, tastier, tea detox. At least not that I've ever found and I’ve been a tea detox devotee for about 15 years. 

All Natural Ingredients: 

TeaMi Skinny TeaOolong, Yerba Mate, Lime leaf Extract, Lotus leaf, Ginger

Root, Dandelion leaf, Rhubarb Root.

Teami Colon Cleanse Tea:
Senna Leaf & Root, Hawthorn Berry Extract, Lotus Leaf, Lime Leaf & Extract, Psyllium Husk Seed, Phaseolus Calcaratus Seed, Rhubarb Root, Poria Cocos Stem Bark, Valerian Root.

The Teami Detox Tea Pack includes:

  • 30 day supply of our Skinny loose-leaf tea
  • 15 colon cleanse tea bags
TeaMi Detox will completely change how your body looks and feels in just 30 days!

  • Boost your metabolism
  • Start burning stored fat
  • Calms muscle spasms and muscle tightness
  • Naturally, raise energy levels
  • Detox your internal organs
  • Reduce Bloating
  • Improve skin complexion
  • Flush out harsh toxins
  • Fix digestive issues

The program is a super fast, healthy weight loss blast that takes minimal effort. It's as easy as drinking a cup of 'Skinny tea' every morning and then every other night, a cuppa Colon tea before bed. Thirty days later, you will have lost a stupid amount of weight and most of all, you’ll be feeling great about yourself. Which, in my experience, has led to making much better choices around the holiday food table.  Unless your doctor says otherwise, DO THIS!

TIP: If you suffer from the mid-day rut and mindless snacking that comes with it, the TeaMi ALIVE Natural Tea Blend will solve that problem instantly. No more coffee jitters. LOVE LOVE LOVE this tea!!!! All Natural Ingredients: Ginger, Honey, Lemongrass, Green Tea!

There are a host of reasons I LOVE LOVE LOVE The Alive Tea:

Benefits may include:
  • Eliminating Chronic Exhaustion 
  • Boosting Metabolism 
  • Heightened Focus & Concentration
  • Increasing Energy Levels
  • Relieving Muscle Pain & Inflammation
  • Purifying the Colon
  • Increasing Blood Circulation which Improves Skin Complexion
  • Detoxing of the Kidney & Liver
  • Decreasing Migraines
  • Relieving Discomfort from Stomach Cramps
Step 2: 30/30 walking challenge to get you active, sleeping better and off the cold-comfort couch. 

The second part is my favorite, the 30/30 Walking ChallengeThis 30- day challenge requires you to walk 30-minutes a day, for 30 days. You could do two 15-minute walks, too! 

 I personally lose about 10 to 12 pounds on this challenge alone, but people who have more weight to lose, I’ve known to lose up to 22 pounds! The Aussie is a week ahead of me! What's more annoying, if I don't do the Tea Detox with the walking challenge he will lose TWICE as much as me.


I’m not kidding. Diligently stick to the detox and walking challenge for 30-days and you will be a completely changed person inside and out. 

Please, do this. I know you’ll thank me. 

Every year I have many readers who do! And my favorite part is that throughout the year, I receive emails and photos of members of this community doing their own 30-day challenges. (Alissa, thank you for getting your entire office involved!) I’m serious, once you start your first 30-day challenge, you’ll never stop. The possibilities are endless. Focus on a different aspect of your mind, body, and soul each month, and at the end, you will be better for it.
