She is not impressed by other people’s celebrity, nor does she seem to have interest in her own growing fame. But these very qualities have helped make her a global sensation.

Small talk


Other people’s celebrity

  • Never do the same workout twice. Mix it up so your body doesn’t plateau.
  • Eat watermelon and asparagus as diuretics. They are great for the body because they help get toxins out.
  • Eat spinach because it’s a great source of fiber and keeps you full.

*Lots of good advice from Dancing with the Stars’ Karina Smirnoff.  It’s the top one that is fitting for 365DOLF.  “Never” is a strong word for the entire year, but try and avoid constantly doing the same workout.  This is also a good example of daily advice for both working out and eating right.

Dear Lord, help me – every single morning – to find faith in the midst of the chaos. Give me the desire and ability to see You, hear You, talk to You, and give thanks to You.

Show Me the Money: Tips On Saving

The Five Dollar Challenge: Anytime you come across a $5 bill, put it away. At the end of the year, use that money towards a fun big purchase, or put it towards your savings account.

*You actually don’t have to wait the entire year.  Tom Cruise’s birthday is July 3 (literally almost born on the 4th of July), watch Jerry Maguire on that day and when Cuba Gooding Jr. says his famous line, brake open that piggy bank and count all of those $5 bills, while saying “show me the money!”
