A few weeks ago, I had the privilege to be selected as the virtual judge of a 21 Day Body Transformation Challenge conducted by my team in Missouri and Texas. The focus, dedication, and determination throughout the 21 days was impressive. After it was all set and done, all the before and afters of the challengers were just so incredible, I was in aw with the amazing results. The following participant had the most dramatic change.Her name is Stacy Lynne Reyes, 33 years old, mother of 2 children from the Texas team. She couldn’t believe she could do it and was hesitant to enter the challenge, but thankfully she did!
This is what she told me, “I know its so exciting, I was complaining so much in the beginning cause I couldn’t keep up with all these young girls! Estela said no excuses Delfina is your age amd after that I was real determined! you guys are both great motivators and inspirations! Its been a ride! I have no idea how u do it and look so amazing!”
So proud of her, she was able to pull through with the support of her team and her Herbalife nutrition plan. She is now pumped for her next level and at the same time inspire other women that do not believe getting ‘Sexy Back’ is possible!
We all want to rock our bikini in the Summer right?
Well, let’s work on that bootay now! Do the following exercise as part of your booty workout routine. By the way, I would recommend to have one day dedicated to the booty only!
Smith Machine: (you may also do this at home with your body weight or dumbbells)
4 Sets 15 Reps Each. No rest in between exercise, 30 second rest in between Rep.
1. Squats (how low can you go ?)
2. Lunge and Raise (switch to other leg)
Being that I have a fashionista (my sisi) as my sidekick, styling is part of my everyday routine. Well, and maybe I take it a tad over the top because every day is a high heel kinda day! However, when I found my passion for fitness, my biggest challenge was trading my sexy stilettos for a pair of tennis shoes for hours in the day. It was very hard for me, I only wished I could just do my fitness activities dressed up…
Fashion…Gym….What to do, what to do?…I now had two lovers!!! Ahhh….Couldn’t I have them both?
YES, YES!! So… I decided to burn calories in style! It’s a perfect combo, and even more so with my crazy schedule trying to juggle, my 3 boys, my business and well, my singlehood. I find myself in my gym clothes hours after leaving the gym, which I now have no problem because I look fashionably fit!
I strongly feel that you should put effort into your workout attire as you would in going to any other place because it will definately effect your motivation and consistancy in attending the gym and eventually obtaining your work out goals!
Check out the following outfits I put together for you to get an idea on how to hit the gym and get clothes to rock something more chic than your tired, old sweats for your next workout! Have Fun!

For those of us that are single, today is the biggest reminder of such status, right? …Quality time with my chicas is very important, so this month’s girl talk has been listening to their plans and gifts for their loves, like…
- “Guess what I got us at the toy shop?”
- “I wont be home for the weekend because I am getting away with my boo!”
- “Oh I got roses at work!”
- “My parents are sitting the kids for our special date!”
And I could easily say “blah, blah, blah” However, I won’t because I love these girls and it truly makes me happy to see them In Love!
On the other side, I also have friends that self pity themselves this month; for that, I wanted to take the time to write about this important topic.
Singleness is definitely not a synonym of loneliness, but all these stories of love could make us somewhat lonely…the commercials, the hearts, the love songs, the chick flick marathons, all the love and happiness of so many love birds can be a constant reminder that something is missing in our lives on this day!
With that being said I wanted to give you 5 ideas to celebrate this beautiful day with self love, with your family and friends!
1. Date night with your boyfriend, ‘GYM’
Just because you’re single doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get any action on Valentine’s Day… in the gym, that is. Exercising is a great way to blow off steam, clear your mind, and feel good about yourself!
Who says you need a king to make you feel like a queen? Time to indulge in all your guilty pleasures. Get a mani and a pedi. Give yourself a facial at home (my favorite :http://www.herbalifeskin.com/) get rid of all the damage that winter has done to your skin while listening to your favorite Pandora station and sipping on a glass of wine! Do whatever you want to do because this Valentine’s Day you can have your cake and eat it too—and go back for another slice.
3. Have a movie marathon
Invite over your other single friends, make some popcorn, sit back and relax!
4. Have a girls’ night out
Nice restaurant, your favorite bar, concert, dance club, movie theater, coffee shop—your options are endless. However you and your friends like to have fun, make the most of Valentine’s Night by dressing up and going out. Try a new place you’ve been meaning to go to, or look online to find out if anything exciting is going on in the area. You may even get some free drinks out of it; single guys get lonely on this holiday too! 5. Love your singleness
Think about all the marvelous benefits of being single, no time for self pity! You have your whole life to find love—take the time you have now to discover yourself, have new experiences, grow and be independent, and make amazing friends. Recognizing all the reasons you love flying solo will remind you that it’s nothing to mope about.
How will you be spending your single Valentine’s Day?

Do you ever have those nights where you feel like there is nothing in the house to cook? The best thing to do when that happens is just start pulling out whatever healthy random things you DO have and just make something up! This was my story tonight. So I ended up with tilapia, romaine lettuce, onion, a carrot, lime and a bag of steamer edamame.
I left the Romaine lettuce whole, filled then with chopped onion, long sliced carrots (so one carrot would go further) and a good amount of steamed edamame peas…. peas? I know their soybeans, but I always want to call them peas.
Next, season the tilapia with your favorite Mrs. Dash (0 carbs, 0 calories, 0 sodium).
Grille fish on medium high heat 3-4 minutes, flip, continue cooking until flaky. Lay fish into romaine boats and squeeze an insane amount of lime juice all over it….
This meal was about 300-340 calories for two boats.
Fun fact about edamame “peas”….
1 cup has
12 grams complete protein
6 grams fiber
10 grams carbs
Tons of B Vitamins
Birthdays C, K, calcium, phosphorus and potassium.

A lot of us spend most of our work day sitting. Whether it be at a cubicle, or sitting in a facial room like I do…. We need to stand up and get the heart rate going.

I have only a few days before I turn 33! I can’t believe it. First of all I feel like I am 23. Secondly I am not ready to be 33. I guess when birthdays approach much like New Years, we tend to reflect on our the past year and what we have done with it. That being said I am finding myself on that boat. The thinking boat. Thinking about time and how it passes.
In November 2012, I was living on my own enjoying life in the moment. But I was scared of the future. I was scared because I did not dream big and allow myself to see what I was capable of.
Now-November 2013, a few days shy of my 33rd birthday, I find myself happily cohabiting with my Herbaboo, planning an addition to our family and excitingly scared of the possibilities of our future.
As you all may know by now I am an Herbalife Independent Distributor and I dream, I dream BIG! I no longer fear the future, but welcome it and its amazing possibilities. I feel more of a grown up now then ever before, because I now hold myself accountable for my future. I know that if I work hard in Herbalife my future will be amazing. I will live a lifestyle I can only dream of.
I always hashtag the following saying “INVEST IN YOU”. Not until this year did I really understand this. It was an “aha” moment. I finally understood, if I don’t invest in me, then who will? I was never the girl that thought she would be at home getting taken care of. I always knew I would have to “work” for a living… Not until I allowed myself to see that I can not only make a living, but I can make a fortune! I mean why not?
“Work hard on your job, and you can make a living. Work hard on yourselves and you can make a fortune.” – Jim Rohn
This quote really spoke to me, it made me realize that I was just making a living and that’s where the buck stopped. What about next year? will I still be in this situation. NO! I am investing in me. I am letting Herbalife be my fuel to greatness. Its all quite simple really. I must invest in me, therefore I must work hard for me. If I work hard for me then I will have a great future. Or I could work hard for a “j o b” work on their goals and make a living. What sounds better? Making a living or making a fortune. The choice is yours. I am working part time on my fortune while making a living at my job.
I invite you to invest in you! Don’t wait until your birthday to have this “a-ha” moment. Really listen to yourself. Are you designing your life the way you in vision it? Are you breaking the barriers of “what is” and allowing yourself to see “what could be”. Herbalife has given me back hope. Not only do I feel amazing, but I am doing amazingly well!
Join my journey as I turn Forever 21 (cough, cough) I mean 33 years young! Invest in you!
The other night, my mother got extremely excited to share “the great news”, mind you, this lady is a huge novelera (Spanish soap opera fanatic) about Telemundo doing a rerun on “La Reina del Sur!” She said, “now that you are home, we can watch it together!”…
This took me back when I blogged about “La Reina del Sur” on my old Spanglish blog, Soy Latina Fashion. Here’s that old post:
……”During my trip to L.A, I met Borca Perez, Telemundo’s Vice President of Digital Media and during our networking, el topico de la conversacion era, “La Reina del Sur.” Todos estaban facinados platicando sobre “Teresa, La Mexicana,” en especial el cuerpazo de Kate del Castillo, who plays “Teresa Mendoza, La Mexicana!” Y yo…bien gracias, had no idea what they were talking about. Entonces, I quickly called my sister to check if she knew about “la tal novela.” As soon as she realized that I was clueless she said, “¿Que, que, no puedo creer de lo que te estas perdiendo?” Then, she proceeded to tell me all about it. I was determined to watch this so-called, “La Gran Novela de Telemundo.” As soon as I made it back home to Missouri, I called my T.V provider and upgraded my service to a Latino plan that included Telemundo and many other Spanish channels.
Now, I watch “La Reina del Sur” every night as soon as my kiddies go to bed. To be honest, I’m mostly obsessed with Kate del Castillo; esa chica is amazingly talented y que no se diga ese cuerpazo! I’m now a member of Telemundo’s club de noveleras, I follow Telemundo on twitter and not to mention, Kate! Oh, did I tell you that I have never in my life been a novelera? I guess there’s a first time for everything, right? “La Reina del Sur” is always part of my conversations, even with my Non-Hispanics friends. ¡Y deja de eso…mi fiancé, “el gringito” is obsessed too!
According to www.tvbythenumbers.com,” La Reina del Sur” is the most-watched novela premiere in Telemundo’s history. It has crazy ratings throughout the nation!……………”
And that’s where my obsession started with the lovely Kate del Castillo.
When I made my declaration to take control of my health and achieve the best version of me with Herbalife nutrition, I decided to start this journey with 25 of my first herbalife clients ever with a weight loss challenge. One of the projects I had all of us do is a vision board based on health and fitness; a great motivational tool to achieve our health goals! One of the visuals was to find a celebrity that inspired each one of us. I automatically picked Kate del Castillo, I blasted her picture everywhere throughout my house, office, car and studio. I’ll tell you what, that totally worked for me and for so many of my clients!
It has been two years since I decided to take this journey and I must say it has been life changing! Most importantly, being able to maintain and to continue to improve~so being a 35 year old mother of three kids…definitely a challenge, but obvious not impossible!
Here is my two year transformation:
When it’s all said and done, I am glad I picked Kate del Castillo, not to be obsessed with her body but more to see her as a role model. Kate del Castillo is a powerful Latina actress, who has touched to many hearts with her incredible talent. I now realize that it is my journey, my transformation, my body that I have learned to embrace and love every inch of it. As for you, if you have been attempting year after year to reach your body goal and have failed. From experience, I will tell you, not one goal will be accomplished if you do not believe in yourself, so the key is to believe you can make it happen! Put together a vision board and keep it close to you, find a celebrity or someone you look up to with a similar body type, surround youself with like-minded people, find a support system to achieve greatness. KEY: Stay true to you, don’t compare youself to anyone, there’s only one of you, you are beautiful~ every part of you, so enjoy your journey, cherish every moment and become the best version of you!
If you need guidance and support… I have your back!
I’m in training to be an online wellness coach!! It’s pretty exciting. ))
I’ve used Herbalife for two years now and been a distributor, but never really taken it seriously when people ask me what I’ve done or how I’ve transformed. When I stopped to think about it, I realized, I want to help these people reach their goals too. Not just give them a simple answer of “I used Herbalife and worked out really hard”.

SOOOOO…. on to the really personal stuff….
I’ve been through some real life struggles this past year and came to realization that I am the creator of my own life. The struggles I am presented with, are my own. I’ve had to let go of toxic people, let go of the what if’s. I’ve battled with self esteem and image issues. I also realized that for 8 years, I have been relying on my husband to do EVERYTHING for me. When did I become this person?
Have faith in yourself.
