Have you ever busted your head searching for supplements, “miracle” facials, or super expensive skin products that will give you the glowing skin you deserve? I know I have. And it didn`t wor.
Of course, what we put On our skin matters tremendously. I am a devoted proponent of regular exfoliating and high-quality serums. However: if our hormones are imbalanced, if we are chronically stressed, dehydrated and consuming too many processed foods that cause inflammation — you guessed it, even the most expensive products will stop working.
What made the biggest difference for my skin is stress management, combined with getting enough sleep and eating a variety of smart fats, antioxidant rich fruits, and greens.
Here is my formula. Easy to remember and very effective.
It spells S.K.I.N:
S. — schedule regular facials that promote cell renewal in your skin
K. — taKe vitamin A, D and K (essential for healthy skin and bones)
I. — intake happy thoughts and lower your stress with meditation and exercise
N. — nourish yourself daily with omega 3 rich foods, vegetables and antioxidants
Sounds pretty simple? It is. Yet, personally, It took me a couple of years to nail it down. Why? Simple doesn’t mean easy. I am here for you to help you brainstorm what in your lifestyle makes attaining glowing skin difficult.
Remember that every change first starts in our subconscious mind. 1) acceptance, 2) letting go and 3) trusting the process. These are the steps of every sustainable transformation. How we look externally is a direct manifestation of how we feel.
The motto of my work is that everyone deserves to look and feel great. 🌺👇🏻♥️

“I love working with A-M, getting weekly assignments and experimenting with different foods and seeing what works for my body. I also like that`s is not a race and not a competition. It`s totally working. Everyone is commenting on how good I look.I feel so great.
My skin is glowing…I feel happy, energized and confident. I eat anti-inflammatory and anti-aging foods, and I feel and I look younger. I feel so much better about my self-esteem.It is very important to work with a coach because you keep yourself accountable…learning how to eat, what to eat, and implanting positive seeds in your brain. I highly recommend it to everybody! It`s the perfect package: getting all the information I need, the motivation, and the support.I absolutely recommend Ana-Maria to everybody! I am so glad she is in my life.It is PRICE-LESS.
It`s the best investment you can do in your life. You are changing your habits forever.” (K.B.)

Don’t wait until you are desperate to change your life.
My responsibility as a practicing health&life coach is to always be honest with you, with no sugar-coating. Nobody will come to save you. No genie, no magic potion, no-one.
What do I mean: nobody can help us if we don’t want to accept responsibility for our thoughts and habits. It’s time to wake up from the illusion that some people have it all figured out while others do not.
It’s just not true. Most of us, regardless of where we are on the scale of personal growth, still experience negative thoughts and insecurities.
The difference is in the level of our self-awareness of these thoughts. Do we allow them to affect us, or do we let them go with ease?
Thoughts are neutral. Their meaning is not. It’s dependent on our emotional state.
Behind every reoccurring negative thought, there is an underlying need that needs to be expressed.
When it’s not expressed, it becomes a compulsion that leads to addictive behaviors, chronic discontment, and lack of fullfilment.
The positive meaning of stress, fatigue, and self-sabotage is they can serve as a catalyst for the URGENCY to take charge of your life and take better care of yourself.
Don’t wait until it’s urgent to prioritize your emotional and physical health.
Take an action step right now!
How to take action:Tweet
1. Be mindful of your thoughts.
2. Don’t act on your thoughts.
3. Replace negative thoughts with their empowering reframing.
4. Don’t quit on yourself when things don’t go well.
5. Find a mentor/work with a coach/join a support group online/distance yourself from people who don’t aspire you to be the best version of yourself.
What happens is that we often wait to be desperate in order to change.
I am here for you if you need to ask any questions.

~ With love and care,
Dear Ana-Maria, I want to thank you for sticking with me to help me shed over 25 pounds! You helped me change my diet for the better. Previously, I was afraid of food. You taught me about foods that I had never heard of before. You taught me how to “eat my greens” and really like it. You taught me quick, easy meals and some of them are portable…We also worked on my mental “baggage.” There were issues from my childhood that were still weighing me down with fear and self-doubt. The affirmations you sent to me were wonderful, for 2 reasons: (1) because it was obvious that you really heard me, and (2) because addressing my issues as they came up over the months, you helped me teach my brain how to set these things aside in appropriate wats through the affirmations and meditaions of the week…I feel great. Now that I have less weight to move around I move around much more easily. The little aches and pains that are usually attributed to getting older are a non-issue. I am dancing more, I am walking more, I am enjoying my life more…Issues that used to get me down or make me angry no longer tun my life. I don`t dwell on them like I used to. They no longer hold power over me. – V. R.

“Thank you, Ana-Maria for your patience and understanding. I recognize that being healthy is about more than just food, it includes stress issues and exercise. You have been so patient with me, helping me past my natural resistance to change, helping me get restorative sleep, dealing with my likes and dislikes in foods, and giving me personal exercises that I can do. The personalized meditations are outstanding. You help me to let go of my fears. The weekly check-ins are so beneficial. During the week you send me wonderful recipes and you listen to my feedback on them and adjust them as needed. I never got much from affirmations that I learned from other “coaches” because they didn’t understand who I am and what I do. The “one size fits all” didn’t fit for me at all. The specific affirmations you have given me, make all the difference. When I tell you the negative things in my life, I am confident that you take these in confidence, but the cool thing is, you carefully turn them into positive goals without ever mentioning the negative place they came from. I expected to go through some changes with my body, and I expected that some changes might be hard to handle, but you helped me through it all with new techniques I had not heard of before, which made the changes easier and the results are terrific. Already I am healthier and stronger than I have been in quite a while.” – Ginger R.
Before booking, please allow me to emphasize that carrying an extra weight usually means some sort of imbalance between yourself and your body. However, my job is not to assist you to chase an unrealistic weight-goal for your frame, but to help you arrive and maintain at the weight that is uniquely perfect for you.
This holistic weight-loss program is designed to give you great results within 90 days; however, you may continue to work with me after the three-month frame 🙂

As one of my favorite book characters, The Little Prince, says: ……”The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or touched, they are felt with the heart.”Tweet
Have you ever wondered if you can find the perfect partner for yourself? Have you ever been disapointed and left wondering if “good” men actually exist? Have you ever given your entire attention and devotion to someone who doesn`t reciprocate your affection and loyalty they way you deserve? Have you ever felt as if there is something “wrong” with you for not being able to find your perfect match?
The missing puzzle you have been looking for is called self-love. Nobody can love us the way we deserve if we don`t love and accept ourselves first.
Love comes from ourselves first. No one can love you unconditionally if you don’t love and accept yourself first. Self-respect is key.
Life is too short to fear being in love. Our heart wants what it wants: to give and receive love effortlessly.
And we don’t have to be in a romantic relationship to experience love. Love is everywhere around us and gets multiplied when we give it graciously: without holding back.
What we receive from others is a mirror of our relationship to our own hearts and bodies.
Our energy enters the room before we even start talking.
When we bring love with us, wherever we go, love follows us in return.
~ Love is our divine birth right, and there is plenty of love for all of us.
Let’s talk about how to relax.
Why is this important? Among other fantastic benefits — when you are relaxed, you burn more fat.
When you’re stressed, you might do the opposite and hold the stubborn weight that doesn’t want to go away. According to case studies, when there is too much cortisol in our bodies (due to physiological or environmental stress), it often triggers fat accumulation.
While eating foods that are high in fiber, protein, and slow-releasing carbs can naturally increase our bodies’ ability to burn more fat, we can help the process significantly by merely slowing down.
When moving through life too fast, without taking enough breaks, we inevitably eat fast, which triggers a cortisol response, and diminishes our calorie-burning power.
Slowing down moves us from the fight-or-flight stress-state to the peaceful state of relaxation and inner calm.Tweet
Just by allowing yourself to relax more, you are likely to increase your metabolism and reach your fitness goals in a much more enjoyable way! 🙏🏼
Now it`s the perfect time to download my guide on chewing slowly: click here.
Not only that: the slower we eat, the faster we metabolize our food and the more sustained energy we have throughout the day.Tweet
The shortcut to turn off stress and activate a physiological relaxation response is conscious breathing. Conscious breathing simply means taking full deep breaths and holding them in for four counts before your exhale. Your nervous system will begin to calm down immediately.
You literally just have to breathe more deeply to switch on the parasympathetic nervous system. We have oxygen available to us 24/7, and it’s always available to use (thankfully!)
Here is an easy exercise you can try:
✔️ Write your top 3 stressors.
✔️Now create your top 3 relaxers.
✔️Ensure eating slowly and are chewing your food.
✔️One busier days, take some time to stretch, do gentle yoga, go for a walk, meditate, or take an Epsom salt bath/long shower.
✔️Initiate regular intimacy with someone you connect to on a deeper level.
Quality intimacy is, by far, one of the best stress relievers!Tweet
Regardless of what you choose to do – when in doubt, just take a break to breathe and relax.

Use these guidelines to learn how to honor your hunger and understand your fullness cues
If you want to build healthy habits around food, what you eat is only a tiny part of the big picture.Tweet
We also have to look at:
- HOW we eat
- Who are you being when you eat?
- Do you eat when you’re not actually hungry?
- Do you eat too little or too much?
How do we “Honor Hunger”?
- Tune into your internal signal that the body needs nourishment.
- Recognize hunger – learn the signs.
- Create an intuitive inner scale from 1-10.
- 1 is just noticing hunger, 10 is starving
- Start to plan for food when you are at a 2.
How do we “Honor Fullness”?
- Create a fullness scale from 1-10.
- 10 is stuffed, 1 is still starving
- Aim for an 8 on the fullness scale – nourished and energized, satiated but not stuffed.
Download this experimental exercise to test how much you`d remember from this post.
I suggest that your follow these guideline for at least 3 subsequent days and observe what happens!
