Set Goals & Get Healthy - Bye Bye Funky Town 2015 and Hello Fab Town 2016

For my regular readers, you know that I've been on a healthier lifestyle journey for well over 3 1/2 years. During this time I learned about eating healthier, exercising and taking care of my entire body, mind and spirit. With that information I lost 100 lbs. The past year of my journey I got stuck in FUNKY TOWN due to letting life beat me down. I let mental games and struggles take over my strong mind and body. Can you relate? I've gained back some of my weight and I'm not as mentally strong as I was going into 2015. NO MORE! I'm getting out of FUNKY TOWN! Who else is stuck in funky town? 



Make sure you really read the photo below! It took me reading it twice to get the whole message!! Time to get on it! Who is ready?


To kick off 2016 I will be saying "No more Funky Town" and leading a healthier lifestyle group for the new year to get me and you to FAB TOWN 2016! Who wants more info?? 


Fill out the Google Doc so that I can get you more information! 

I'm ready to leave funky town and head to ����������FAB TOWN!!!  How about you? Share this post with others who you think would like to join us. Let's not keep our trip a secret :)

Now Enjoy McCafé Packaged Coffee Any Time of the Day! ad #McCafeAtHome #IC

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for McCafé packaged coffee. I received product samples as well as a monetary promotional incentive to thank me for my participation.

I'm a huge fan of McDonalds coffee. I love just their regular coffee with some added creamer. So you can only imagine how over the moon excited I was to find out that you can now purchase McCafé packaged coffee in local stores! Have you seen them or tried any of the varieties? Do you have any favorites?

I am excited to report that I have tried the following McCafé packaged coffees:

  • Breakfast Blend- K-Cup & Roast and Ground
  • Hazelnut- K-Cup & Roast and Ground
  • Espresso Roast - Roast and Ground
BONUS brew video of the Breakfast Blend. Doesn't this make you want to brew a cup of McCafé packaged K-Cup coffee right now? 



I love having them in my home to be enjoyed anytime of the day. I have found that I enjoy the Breakfast Blend anytime of the day. It has the perfect flavor that I'm used to at my local McDonald's restaurant. I do not know if that is what they use for their all day coffee but to me, it taste jut like McDonalds. I have become a fan of the Hazelnut and since it is Christmas time, I do enjoy it in the afternoon with 1-2 tsp of my homemade hot cocoa mixed in. The Espresso Roast is perfect anytime, especially after dinner.

I have a coffee Christmas tree in my kitchen. Doesn't it look beautiful with all the packages of McCafé around it? I'm a serious coffee lover and my kitchen is called Susie's Cafe. I don't just have any coffee in my cafe. Now I can carry McCafé packaged coffee in my home cafe by just picking up K-Cups at my local grocery store. The coffee is made with 100% Arabica beans. Please do stop in for a cup of McCafé coffee when you are in town!

I'm a huge fan of K-cups and I can't wait for more flavors to be released. Merry Christmas!
