Resolution Recharge with Nutritionist Sara Richter


One of the many things I love about Isagenix is the way they keep things real. Contrary to some misperceptions out there, this is NOT a crash diet, nor is it a vehicle to “jump-start” your diet. In fact, it’s not a diet at all but nutrition for life. These high quality products are designed to provide the body with the nutrients it can no longer ingest from our food due to a variety of factors: nutritionally deficient soil, cows injected with artificial hormones, pesticides, etc.

They are designed for long-term usage, to be incorporated into a healthy lifestyle with benefits that go far beyond weight loss to include healthy aging, increased energy, better muscle tone and an overall feeling of well-being. At the same time, the folks at Isagenix understand we’re all human: even the best intentioned and most disciplined person in the world is still going to enjoy an occasional slice or cake, or a piece of candy, or a glass of wine — especially when celebrating a special event or taking a vacation.

Listen this podcast in which nutritionist Sara Richter discusses why you might want to consider ditching the scale and abstaining from self-guilt if you indulge in an occasional sweet.

One of the secrets to my success is that I only weigh myself about once per month, preferring instead to take measurements and notice the way my clothes are fitting. Everything is loosening up, including the workout shorts I am wearing right now, which used to be almost painfully tight. Just a little while ago, someone remarked about how much weight I am losing as evidenced by my face. Hearing that kind of feedback is nourishment for body and soul and keeps me motivated to go the distance.

Funny thing is, while I agree that we must keep living (which includes the enjoyment of what we typically think of as “forbidden” foods), I don’t even have a desire for sugar or sweets since starting the program. However, it’s nice to know that when the day comes that I do indulge, I can get right back on track with a Cleanse or All-Shake Day.

Are you ready to experience Isagenix and join our team of fit, fabulous people? Contact me here.

A big THANK YOU to my friend and fellow Isagenix Associate Diane Student for sharing the podcast!



The Amazing Abigail Rich

Abigail Rich, Model, Actress & Playboy Bunny (3)

What a lovely email to wake up to today:

Ms. DiGiovanni;

I wanted to contact you and let you know how much I enjoyed your interview with Ms. Rich. I have been in the Hollywood lifestyle and employment for more years than I would like to admit and even before that as a child I got to hang around the sets with my Dad, who also was a stuntman. I was born 3 years after the beautiful Ms. Marilyn ¬†Monroe passed. My father had worked with Ms Monroe on alot of her films and has always talked about her. I too in listening to my father was intrigued. After listening to your interview with Ms. Rich, and having the opportunity to work with her on a few films I was amazed to how much she resembles Ms. Monroe. her beauty, grace style was so Old school glamour she had such a way to just draw you in, she has no ego, no diva just a normal (Glamourous) woman. I heard her story on your show and a few others, checked her out on IMDB and was amazed on how parallel these two women lives were, as Ms. Monroe was also brought up in Foster care. My father who is now in a nursing home heard Ms. Rich’s story as well, looked at Ms. Monroes photos next to Ms. Rich and thought they were sisters. During the shooting of Paul Blart Mall Cop 2, I asked Miss Rich if it was possible for her to someday drop ¬†in on my father and just visit, He has such a place in his heart for Hollywoods old school glamour, she said sure, and went about her work on the set. Last week, Ms. Rich dropped in t the nursing home in west Los Angeles and spent 5 hours visiting with my father. He cried when she left, but she promised to visit him again, My Father thought it was Ms. Monroe, whom he knew personally. Ms. Rich is such a very sweet and wonderful woman I had to let you know. Anyway I would love to hear more of her on your show, and THANK YOU for sharing her with us. You made an old man very happy.

Engaging April Fools Day

In a relationship with B.J. Quinlan.

In a relationship with B.J. Quinlan.

Yesterday I participated in a Facebook April Fools Day prank inspired by B.J. Quinlan, a man with whom I am now sharing a wonderful relationship. Although we’ve known each other for two years, it was only recently that things became romantic — mostly because of me. Although I’d acknowledged his interest in me a long time ago, for a variety of reasons having nothing to do with him, I hadn’t been ready to explore the possibilities.

Previously on Facebook (and everywhere else online), I’d kept my personal relationship status to myself. Even after it was apparent that B.J. and I had serious potential, I preferred to keep our budding relationship to myself (at least on the internet) for a while.

That is, until he approached me with an idea to have a little fun with an April Fools prank: announce our engagement on Facebook. At first I hesitated because I did not want to hurt my family and friends who are incredibly encouraging but finally — on the condition that I alert my mother ahead of time — I decided to go for it. Real friends and family would understand and get the joke.

What I wasn’t prepared for was the amazing outpouring of sincere joy and congratulations during the hours people actually believed we were officially engaged. Most got a big chuckle out of our joke and understood that we used April Fools as a vehicle to announce our relationship. Many thanks to all who commented and messaged me — your interest means more than I could ever adequately express.

And for the first time in my nearly seven years on Facebook, I have a public status that states: “In a relationship.”

Very exciting!



Visiting Melbourne? Stay at The Crane Creek Inn

One great thing about living in Florida is that everyone wants to visit. But what to recommend if you don’t have a lot of space to accommodate visitors?

The Crane Creek Inn.

I discovered this little gem, located just two blocks from downtown Melbourne during one of my causeway walks with my good friend Damalis. When I’d mentioned that several friends and family members were interested in visiting, she suggested we extend our walk to Melbourne Avenue, where I could investigate a B & B.

We arrived at a lovely craftsman style house decorated in Key West style, where owner Andy gave us a tour. Upon entering, I was struck by how the decor, amenities, and ambiance created a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere for travelers who just want to get away from it all. Unlike an impersonal hotel, the Crane Creek Inn was like stepping

back in time to an era when strangers actually engaged each other in conversation. Although a throwback in some ways, the Inn is definitely in tune with modern times, offering WiFi, a private guest bathroom in each suite, a well-maintained pool and deck, and a boardwalk complete with Adirondack chairs along the river.

Yet there’s also a library where guests can select from a variety of reads, and a lovely dining room where they can enjoy a hot, made-to-order breakfast every morning, compliments of Andy. The rooms also come with their own porches or decks depending on the accommodations (some even have kitchens!). And while you feel as if you are tucked away in a peaceful sanctuary brimming with characteristic Old South charm, you’re still just a few blocks away from shops, restaurants, bars, and other activities. For travelers without cars, it’s very manageable to walk to variety of entertaining venues.

That day I was so impressed with the place I recommended it to friends Renee and Karen, each of whom booked reservations. Last week, Renee enjoyed a few days at the Inn and currently my good friend Karen is staying there.

Next month, my parents will no doubt enjoy it as much as my two girlfriends when they check in at the Crane Creek Inn.

Husband and wife owners Andy and Bambi have done an outstanding job in transforming the Crane Creek Inn into a little slice of paradise on the Central Florida Coast. Yesterday, he even offered Karen and me a complimentary boat ride on the river, where we took in the beautiful scenery and even spotted a few manatees along the way. This place is clean, modernized, hospitable and hard to leave. If your future plans include visiting Melbourne, consider staying at the Crane Creek Inn. You’ll be very glad you did!

Owning My Life


I started my Isagenix journey on February 6 with optimism, determination, and for the first time, actual hope. After 30 days, I’d not only lost 12 pounds an 14.25 inches but was well on my way to building a residual income — something I resisted at first, due to past experiences with other network marketing companies and uplines. And it soon became clear to me why Isagenix stands alone in this industry: a fantastic product line, excellent customer service, an incredible compensation plan, a supportive team, and a multitude of easy-to-navigate websites brimming with information in the form of articles, videos, and podcasts.

When I reached the rank of Consultant almost two weeks ago, I received a personal phone call from Ronnie in the home office to congratulate me. I also earned a $50 bonus just for the promotion, along with an override on my team’s volume.

Today, I got the following in the mail from the person waaay at the top of our upline.


Own my life?

Sounds like a great idea to me! If you want to learn more about the program, contact me here to set up a free phone consultation.
