{kaia 10 Commandments}



Good morning!!  Amplify BRIK is T-minus 5 days peeps.

You are never going to believe what’s in my mug this morning!!  Morning Tonic Tea.  Not coffee + Bailey’s Irish cream?  Say whattt?  I swapped my normal day-off morning beverage for a Kaia approved drink.  I’m telling you, crazy shit it going down at this house.


Kaia Morning Tonic Tea

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 4 slices ginger
  • dash of cayenne

Boil water.  Add lemon + ginger + cayenne and allow to steep for 3 minutes.

Who need coffee when you got cayenne – that shit will wake you up, promise!!

Ok, friends –  I’ve read and re-read recipes, nutrition, meal plans, preparation…you name it.  I’m feeling more and more ready.

Melika, Owner + Kaia Coach + Great friend, suggested I pick a couple of the Kaia 10 Commandments this week (pre-kaia) and focus on them.  It’s frickin brilliant.  Anything to help ease this body into what is about it hit me next week, has got to help, right?


  1. Water, water, water
  2. Eat dinner before 6pm and definitely not past 7pm
  3. Eat 30-35 grams of fiber daily
  4. Cut alcohol: sorry chard + cab, we have to break up 🙁
  5. Replace sugar
  6. Replace white stuff
  7. NEVER skip meals
  8. Cut the crap: artificial or processed, that is.
  9. Limit or eliminate dairy and meat
  10. Eat unlimited veggies!!

Here’s what I’m going to focus on this week:

  1. Water – drink 1/2 of your body weight in ounces of water per day.  Example 150 lbs = 75 ounces of water a day.
  2. Replacing sugar – have I mentioned that I’m not a fan of fruit?  Well, I’m going to work on it.  Apples + Bananas + Pineapples are welcome to join me this week…..and the next 6 weeks too.
  3. Eat dinner before 6:30pm.  This will be a little tricky on certain week nights with kid activities + meetings, but I do love a challenge.

I haven’t skipped a meal since 1998, so that shouldn’t be too hard 🙂  Since it’s New Years Week, we will work on the alcohol part….beginning Monday!!  The rest are all going to be equally challenging, so I picked my top three to work on.  We shall see how it goes!

What Kaia Commandments will you be working on this pre-kaia week?  Let me know…I’d love to hear.

  1. Yay you! I started by cutting out my one cup of coffee per day on Monday. Headaches are lingering but by tomorrow will be gone. Definitely water intake is a deficit of mine. I prefer water with flavor so I add lime to it. Thanks for sharing your journey!
