Hello my friends of the internet, how’s your new year going?
We all start off with resolutions and things we want to change about ourselves, and for the most part, statistically, we don’t stick with it. According to statisticbrain.com here is what typically happens:
Percent of people who are successful in achieving their resolution 8% Percent who have infrequent success 49%
That’s why I won’t make resolutions anymore, because I know myself well enough to know I won’t keep them. I DO, however, know that I’m really darn good at making lifestyle changes, [even on a moment’s notice…cold turkey I guess you could call it] and that’s why I dedicated myself to the Zen Project 8 starting on January 4th.
I really let myself go in 2015 and just was NOT happy with my health, fitness levels or my appearance. So, here, basically 2 weeks time, is my story of “does zen project 8 work”. [follow along with my weekly updates here]
If YOU are looking for a LIFE LONG health and lifestyle change, you should most definitely check out zenproject8.com and whether or not it will be a fit for you. It’s working for me, I’m feeling pretty confident in saying it can work for you too! With love & gratitude …
I just can’t believe I’m here again. I swore I wouldn’t…and then I did.
Sound familiar? Four years ago I lost a bunch of weight (40 lbs)…SWORE it was my FINAL weight loss…but it wasn’t. I’m 50 now, I can’t keep messing around with this! I don’t want to say this IS my final weight loss, because I’m not simply going for weight loss this time. I’m going for a full overhaul of fat loss and healthy lifestyle. That’s what makes this program, this challenge, this COMMUNITY different. It truly is NOT just a diet and a weight loss plan, it’s so much more! #zenproject8
“The ZEN BODI® system targets the three essential aspects of getting fit: curbing appetite, burning fat and building muscle.”
So (here we go) with the deepest of breaths and wiping away a few tears (I’m not trying to be dramatic here, I’m just really upset I’ve let myself go so badly)…here are my BEFORE pictures for my Zen Project 8 participation…I do this to stay accountable not only to myself, but my readers. If I can do this SO CAN YOU!
My internet friend, if you need a change of body, a change of health, I really encourage you to read up on the Zen Bodi® program and see how we are different.
I will keep you updated on my progress here, and on my YouTube channel so definitely stay tuned!
This IS my last time…it must be and it will be. As we age we simply need to take better care of ourselves. I have not. I’m the first to admit that my 50th year has been, well, let’s say NOT what I had planned, and I just let myself go. That changes. Today. My 8 week Zen Project 8 challenge starts Monday January 4th, 2016 and I can’t WAIT to show you my after pictures!
While it may be too late to join this particular challenge, it’s NOT too late to get your OWN Zen Bodi® started for the new year. Check out the product packages here.
I would LOVE your support in this journey. Comment below if you’ve ever gone on a weight loss/fat loss journey more than once.
The reality is, you’re getting older right? Do you want your skin to look older? Nope, I didn’t think so! Let me show YOU how you TOO can have and use this amazing anti-aging Luminesce™ Serum and how to potentially get it for FREE!!
“Dermatologist-developed, this must-have serum helps minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles to reveal your skin’s youthful radiance. Give your skin the luminous glow with this potent serum that contains the highest concentration of APT-200™.
Diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles for a youthful-looking complexion. Revive with antioxidants and vitamins so skin feels beautiful. Renew for a more even-looking skin tone.”
Q. What is the advantage of the adult stem cell technology in LUMINESCE™ cellular rejuvenation serum?
A. The adult stem cell conditioned media in LUMINESCE™ cellular rejuvenation serum contains cytokines, which have the same attributes as the cytokines in the human body. This allows for a perfect interaction between our product and natural skin cell processes.
Q. In what specific ways does LUMINESCE™ cellular rejuvenation serum produce results?
A. The growth factors and cytokines provided by the stem cell technology work with the natural processes of the skin to support rejuvenation and decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Q. What is the relationship between growth factors and the stem cell technology?
A. The patent-pending technology of LUMINESCE™ cellular rejuvenation serum provides for the delivery of key growth factors found naturally in skin. As we age, these growth factors are reduced, and this is one of the underlying reasons skin has an aged appearance. This commonly shows up as the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Q. What are some of the most significant benefits from using LUMINESCE™ cellular rejuvenation serum?
A. The visible results of applying LUMINESCE™ cellular rejuvenation serum daily include the possible diminishing of the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, increased luminosity of the skin, and restored youthful smoothness to the skin.
Q. What is the time frame to see these visible results?
A. As the effects of LUMINESCE™ cellular rejuvenation serum work in tandem with natural processes of skin renewal, visible results will vary from person to person due to varying skin types. Moderate skin renewal may occur within four weeks, but optimal improvement to the skin is generally not reached until after three months of daily use.
Q. Does LUMINESCE™ cellular rejuvenation serum contain live stem cells?
A. There are no stem cells in the serum. A natural liquid media is conditioned by the human adult stem cells. This conditioned media now full of over 200 growth factors is completely separated and this is what is used in LUMINESCE Cellular rejuvenation serum.
Q. LUMINESCE™ cellular rejuvenation serum contains more than 200 growth factors. How many growth factors are normally in such a prestigious product?
A. There is no product currently on the market that rivals LUMINESCE™ cellular rejuvenation serum. Although a few products claim to use stem cells, they are generally derived from plants and fruits such as apples. Since we are humans and not plants these plant stem cells cannot communicate with our cells like human-derived growth factors do.
Q. What type of communication does this refer to?
A. The growth factors in LUMINESCE™ cellular rejuvenation serum are the language of the cells and are used for cellular communication. Ongoing research continues to teach us more and more about this important cellular communication process.
Q. Is LUMINESCE™ cellular rejuvenation serum compatible with the body’s natural processes?
A. Yes. LUMINESCE™ cellular rejuvenation serum simply supports the body’s natural ability of the cells to renew and rejuvenate.
Today I want to serve you and talk about depression. So many people suffer…needlessly. I’m here to share my 3 coping mechanisms for depression.
The other day I Googled “most common problems of middle aged women” and I actually was shocked. 95% of what Google showed in that search was about depression. That kind of made me sad because I was hoping to see something like makeup or fashion or sex drive or something like that but no, it was almost all about depression. I wanted to address that because I’ve been there and some days I still am there.
Let me preface anything that I’m about to say with, I’m obviously not a doctor I’m just little Lorri sitting in my living room making a video and blog post for you and sharing my experiences with you, sharing my life with you.
I went through a severe depression late 90’s early 2000’s I was on some strong anti-depressant medicines for a very long time..for 7 years and I finally quit cold turkey after 7 long years. Life continued to evolve in different ways and I through these experiences I have learned so many lessons in the last few years. I’ve become so much wiser and so much stronger in many areas.
That being said, depression still seeps in from time to time and so I understand and I get it and what I want to share with you today some of my own personal coping mechanisms because I think for some people depression doesn’t necessarily ever completely go away…it still lingers in the background like crazy stupid gremlins that try and come out.
Therefore you need to learn how to cope with it and to almost embrace it, and that’s my first coping mechanism:
We are made the way we are made for a reason, everything about who we are and who you are is for a purpose so if having depression on a regular basis or a just every so often kind of basis, like it is with me, it’s simply part of who you are so embrace that and learn to make the best of it. I have embraced mine for this purpose right here, to be able to teach the lessons I’ve learned from it.
learn from it
Can you improve yourself in some area because of how you’re feeling and how depression makes you feel. Also, is there something that you can, in turn, turn around and give back in some way to somebody else. When I can give back I know that changes the way I feel and depression is no longer an issue at that point in time.
project yourself beyond the moment
Move beyond how you are feeling right now and project into a minute from now or an hour from now or tomorrow or next week or next year, when things can and will be significantly different. I quite literally stop myself, close my eyes and just breathe deeply and say Lorri “think forward, think forward”.
Those are my 3 coping mechanisms for depression; embrace it, it’s part of who you are so stop fighting it. Embrace who you are just exactly how you are and at this stage of life, the middle of our life, there’s still so much we can do to improve ourselves but that won’t happen until you can accept yourself. Learn from it and give back, take yourself out of the equation and give to somebody else, whatever it is, the circumstances will present themselves. And then think forward. Put yourself into a place in your mind where you’re not feeling depressed and you’re not being depressed.
Again, these are all just my own personal stories and circumstances that I’m sharing with you today. I never used to talk about the fact that I had depression; that I have depression. I’m learning to love myself and I hope and trust and pray that you will too, because ladies, we’re entering the second half here and there’s no time like the present, we never know what life is about to hand over to us so, every day is precious.
With love & gratitude …

I hope you enjoyed my little revelation! Seriously though, I actually RARELY use Instantly Ageless™ anymore, and that’s because … I DON’T NEED TO ANYMORE! Not really very often anyway! I mean, who’s kidding who, life is BUSY and sometimes I need that “pick me up” in the face from what Instantly Ageless™ can do, but it’s pretty rare!
I truly LOVE what Instantly Ageless™ does for people, but I’m going to be straight with you, I LOVE LUMINESCE™ MORE!! This anti-aging skin care line has changed my skin forever, and I’m HAPPY to grow old with it by my side!
I used to be one of those who never really cared for my skin. Noxzema was the skin care de jour when I was a teenager (to this DAY I can’t imagine why we wanted to put that white gooey MESS all over our face and considered it CLEAN?!) then as a young adult it turned to all kinds of other drug store products. Life hits hard sometimes, truthfully, as it did for me when my marriage fell apart and I was a single mom with barely enough to get by, then it was a routine of soap and water for a LONG time. I always managed to have some sort of moisturizer, but for the most part…I’m blessed (and very grateful) that my skin has turned out as well as it has. When I turned 50 however, my friends gave me this line of skin care and I’m SO thankful they did because it has TRULY been a game changer for me!
Do you want to see and feel and HAVE the best skin of your life…even if it’s the “second half” already? TRY LUMINESCE today!
With love & gratitude …
