Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello Wedding

If you have not seen or heard Modern Family star Sofia Vergara and Magic Mike star Joe Manganiello tied the know yesterday. The wedding took place in the evening at the Breakers Resort in Palm Beach, Florida. Unlike most celebrities Sofia has been super generous with her fans. She had wedding event photos posted on her social media account over the last 3 days to share with her fans. This is a great tactic to keep the paparazzi at bay and to let their fans in and see how happy they are on this joyous occasion.

If you have not seen any of the images here are a few:

Hit Your Health Goals With Some High-Tech Help

11_11_15 picture

With the holidays just around the corner, you have to be proactive about your health and build good habits now, before you’re surrounded by platters of temptation and eggnog. But committing to a workout routine will only get you so far because exercise is only half of the equation.

When it comes to food, garbage in equals garbage out. Keeping a food diary can greatly help to hold yourself accountable. Luckily, the following devices, apps and programs are making this easier than ever before.

Jawbone UP3

While Jawbone built its reputation on tracking steps and sleep, their latest version is packed full of other features. One of the UP3’s most notable features is a food log in its companion app. With a clean and crisp display that makes this process as simple as possible, it features a bar code scanner and a photo function, so you can take a picture of your meal as well as manually input nutritional information. Once you enter your meal, the app provides a Food Score, so you know how healthy of a choice it was in terms of your overall health goals.

Price: $179.99

Nutrino

Nutrino takes the guesswork out of what you need to eat to reach your health goals. Simply enter your goal and the program works its magic to create a completely personalized meal plan. It also features a highly detailed food diary, so you can track your meals over time. Nutrino is especially useful if you have food allergies or dietary restrictions, as the meal plans can be custom-tailored to meet those needs.

Price: Free

Health

In an age where you can track everything from your steps to your sleep patterns using a variety of apps and devices, Apple’s native iOS Health app is a welcome simplification if you’re an iPhone user. While the app is capable of tracking everything from your nutrition intake to your reproductive health stats to your heart rate, daily steps and sleep, the real value in Health lies in being able to aggregate data from all of your other health and fitness apps and devices into one place. You can quickly link your favorite tracking apps to Health, where everything syncs seamlessly and displays in a cohesive, easy-to-understand format. The latest Health app features are optimized to perform best on the new iPhone 6s, so you’ll want to upgrade your device to get the most out of this app.

Price: Free

Weight Watchers Online Plus

While hearing “Weight Watchers” may give you flashbacks of cheesy ’90s commercials promoting the brand, this evidence-based method for teaching healthy eating habits has gotten a face-lift in recent years, and now even Oprah is using it. Although the company’s previous model required attending in-person meetings, you can now participate entirely online using their OnlinePlus program. It includes access to an eight-week video series to learn healthy habits, 24/7 chat with its experts, customized meal plans, recipes and an online community of other participants for added support. This web-based interface also features integration with many popular fitness wearables, so you can get credit for your activity in Weight Watcher’s signature PointsPlus values.

Price: From $4.91 a week for a three-month plan

MyFitnessPal

If you are looking for a comprehensive food diary companion to your activity logs and you like to think in terms of calories, MyFitnessPal is for you. Available for iOS, Android, Windows and Blackberry, its accessible for a broader audience, which has partly attributed to its widespread success. MyFitnessPal boasts the world’s largest calorie and nutrition database with over five million foods. This massive database makes it easy to log everything you eat and drink, so you can get back to your workout.

Motivation Monday: Change your life

It is Monday and in my social media circles that means it is time to get motivated. You know “Motivational Monday”??

I love Monday and I am going to tell you why. Monday rocks. It is the first day of the week, a time to make new goals and to really start fresh if you need to. Why do a lot of people hate Monday?

The obvious reason is that they have to go to work on Monday morning. I am telling you if you love what you do, is that really all that bad?

Find something that really lights a fire under you. Find your passion. It took me a really long to time to get to that place but I am finally there and I can tell you that it is such a relief to love every day. I mean I am obviously human and have bad days but there is absolutely something awesome in everyday.

You could attribute my change of attitude in that fact that I now work from home. I will admit I am really lucky to be able to do so. This all really started when I had o stay home and wait for my residency after moving to the States. This blog was what really kept me from going stir crazy. Then the amazing thing happened, people started reading it. The other great part is that people started to offer me jobs that pertained to my blog. I had a hobby that I loved and I was making income on it.

After blogging for a while, I had also made some incredible relationships within the fashion and fitness community. Most of these relationships flourished over social media. Social media is totally awesome if you know how to use it properly and I love it. I have many new friendships and work relationships that I would not have if it was not for Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. This also lead me to my biggest passion: fitness coaching.

I met some fabulous people within the fitness community on Instagram and I started to think about becoming a Beachbody coach. Yep, a beachbody coach. I know there are tons of them out there and lot on Social Media. Why did I want to be a beachbody coach?

Simple answer: Beachbody works. I used Beachbody programs to help myself lose my baby weight and it worked. Not only do beachbody programs work, they can inspire you to want to help other people to do the same. Beachbody has this incredible program that allows you to help others through the programs and to keep them on track in their weight loss journey. I became and coach and have not regretted it even for a second.

The other amazing part of being a Beachbody coach has been being part of a team. I would love to talk to you about being a part of this amazing experience. If we are the right fit and you are serious, I would love to mentor you in the start of your Beachbody coaching business. Shoot me an email at nycfitfoodfashion@gmail.com and let’s chat!
