In honor of St. Patty's Day, we held our fabulous SHAMROCKIN' event at The Young Women's Leadership School of Astoria and the everyone LOVED IT!!! The Energy Up! girls got together with High Voltage and over 15 teachers from the school to "sugar shock" various items and taste healthy foods including sugar-free salad dressings made especially for TYWLS Astoria for being the first SUGAR-FREE SCHOOL in NYC. What Energy Up! event would be complete without drinking water...and thanks to Omega Water we had plenty of it! The girls loved the Berry Breeze, Orange Splash, Lemon Squeeze, and Fruit Fushion flavors. THANK YOU OMEGA WATER!!!
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Behaviors designed to "uncover" or "expose" others are sometimes used for this purpose, as are utterances like "Shame!" or "Shame on you!"
When i see an advertisement or read about a product that is so UTTERLY DECEITFUL, I put them in the HALL OF SHAME!
The product must STAND OUT as such a complete misrepresentation of what it really is....many products are not particularly good for you...but a product in the Hall Of Shame is clearly misleading and deserves to be called out.
The Hall of Shame uses faulty science and studies to back up their pitch. It manipulates emotions and lack of knowledge and uses misleading language and artwork on packaging while manipulating the public's lack of nutritional knowledge. HOW OFFENSIVE!!!
ENERGY UP! feels that corporate America would be happy to produce healthier foods...it is our job to DEMAND IT!!!!
Below you'll find products that have already found their way into the ENERGY UP! HALL OF SHAME
I can't believe it...
This week, in conjunction with National Nutrition Month and International Women's Day, we kicked off our 10th year of Energy Up! at Mother Cabrini High School in NYC! Over the past 10 years, the Energy Up! G's at Mother Cabrini have transformed their lives; and the faculty and staff have been AMAZING and SO SUPPORTIVE! This week I welcomed the freshman class of Energy Up! G's for the spring semester at Mother Cabrini and boy are these girls ready to to be FIT, FAB, & FIERCE -- I've haven't seen enthusiastic WOOOOOOO's like this in a while! ENERGY UP!!!! WOOOOOOO!
For this event, we partnered with the great folks from Omega Water -- we had tons of Omega Water on hand to keep our Energy Up! G's hydrated and motivated -- they LOVED the Omega Water, I highly recommend checking it out here: http://omegawater.com or on Facebook. THANK YOU OMEGA WATER FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!
Here are some pictures from the event -- check these girls out -- they're AMAZING!!!
We're updating the look of our program materials a bit to speak to our core group of girls in the Energy Up program at TYWLS in Astoria, Mother Cabrini High School, and many others around the country! Our new look/messaging offers strong, powerful affirmations and statements to help remind and empower our girls, their friends, teacher, faculty, and staff to stay Fit, Fab, and Fierce! Check out the new look below and let us know what you think!
It was so disturbing watching a commercial on television about Disney Gummy Bear Vitamins knowing that the first two ingredients are sugar and that it is basically spoon feeding your children sugar with a few vitamins.......there are so many wonderful parents that have no idea how HARMFUL and miss leading these commercials are....SHAME ON DISNEY FOR BEING A SPOKESPERSON FOR THE SUGAR INDUSTRY!!!!!!!....Kids need fruit and veggies not SUGAR CANDY pushed as vitamins!!!!!!...RING THE ALARM!!!!!!!!....Energy Up Whoooo V!
YOU ARE WHAT YOU THINK!
You can get a handle on positive thinking with affirmations – empowering phrases you repeat to yourself at different times of the day. They’re ways to reinforce your goals, eliminate fear, and turn your dreams into reality. WORDS ARE POWER – if you believe it, you can achieve it!
Find an affirmation that is most relevant and empowering to you. You can use any of my favorites listed below or write your own. I want you to say it at least three times a day:
- When you first wake up in the morning.
- Before you go to sleep at night.
- At times of stress throughout the day.
Another key time is after you exercise, when you’re in an endorphin state. I want you to shout out affirmations while you’re feeling that rush of energy! It’s AMAZING! Play the video to see just what I’m talking about.
Some of my favorite affirmations include:
- I am Happy, I am Healthy, I am FIT, FABULOUS, & FIERCE!
- I am Happy, I am Healthy, I Can Be Whatever I Want!
- I am Happy, I am Healthy, I am the Best and I Deserve the Best!
- I am Happy, I am Healthy, I Love My Family and My Family Loves Me!
- I am Happy, I am Healthy, I Can Eat What I Want Because I’ve Changed What I Want!
ACTIVITY: Create your own affirmation poster. It can be on a regular piece of notebook paper, or something as big as a piece of poster board. Write it out and hang it on the wall, refrigerator or the bathroom mirror. (It won’t hurt your family to see a little positive thinking too!)
The Young Women's Leadership School of Astoria is our FIRST SUGAR-FREE SCHOOL!!! The Energy Up G's at this school are amazing and came out in force for the February Fit, Fab, & Fierce event during school. Once again Energy Up! partnered with HINT Water and the girls LOVED it! In fact, we're working with HINT and TYWLS to get HINT products offered in the vending machines in place of what's currently there -- how awesome is that?! Check out some pictures from the event below -- WE'RE MAKING A DIFFERENCE!!! ENERGY UP!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOO
Stop making excuses! You can stay FIT, FAB, & FIERCE by working out throughout the day. It's all about staying in constant motion and making sure you're taking care of your body! Check out the videos below for some tips from High Voltage on how to stay Fit, Fab, & Fierce by Shaping Up While You Wake Up! Energy Up!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOO
Recently, the Energy Up G's at Mother Cabrini High School in NYC showed that they are FIT, FAB, & FIERCE as part of our February program and took the pledge together with High Voltage -- over 400 girls took the pledge and committed to being SUGAR-FREE during the school day. Energy Up! partnered with HINT Water who was gracious enough to supply a bottle of their amazing and healthy product to each of the girls in attendance!
Watch the video to see the girls in action -- it's really amazing!
