It’s been a while, I know, I know. Sorry. As anyone can imagine, life with 6 kids is always busy- we always have something going on. Between gymnastics, dance, boy scouts, cub scouts, girl scouts, PTA, MOPS, karate and baseball, I rarely even have time to keep up with housework!
I have a few things in mind that I can talk about so hopefully I’ll have some time to be writing more regular posts.
The last time I wrote, I was talking about how I started exercising more and getting in shape. I am happy to say that I have been able to keep up with that still and I have even gotten my husband in on it! He lost weight, I lost weight. We also both gained muscle. I was just doing various exercise challenges on YouTube. Some were 12 weeks, some 2 weeks, some just ongoing. I also got myself Fitbit. I joined up with friends who have one also and started doing weekly step challenges with them.
After I noticed change in my body from regular exercise, I started changing the way we were eating. I already made sure the meals we ate had veggies in them and also that they were fairly balanced but now I started making sure that we didn’t eat anything that was highly processed. Less fatty and unhealthy foods also.
I then started looking into other ways to get healthier. I started buying some more organic foods and looking into… just, more. A friend of mine told me about essential oils. I got a starter kit with Young Living and was hooked! These little bottles are amazing! We have gotten a lot less illness since I’ve started using essential oils also. I use them in my cooking and while cleaning. So now not only do we eat healthier foods, but I have limited the amount of dangerous chemicals and toxins in my home. Our overall health has improved tremendously! I use grapefruit or citrus fresh essential oils in my drinking water daily. I use theives household cleaner all over my home- bathrooms, kitchen, windows, carpet, wood floors, etc. It’s that time of year so I use lavender, lemon and peppermint in the diffuser to help with seasonal symptoms. I use a blend called Progessence Plus to help with hormones and my gosh, the energy and balance mood-wise is so needed! I diffuse Purification constantly to keep the house smelling fresh and clean when I don’t always have time keep up with housework. I’ve also recently started using vitamins called Super B and PowerGize- even more energy and my hair and nails have been growing so fast!
If anyone is interested in starting essential oils for yourself, the best way is to get a starter kit like I did. It’s 11 of the most commonly used oils, a diffuser and a bunch of samples. By getting a kit, you also then become a wholesale member meaning all future purchases are at wholesale price, 24% off of retail! Feel free to use this link to get started!
Or you can just go to YoungLiving.com, click on “become a member” and then use my ID. I’d be happy to talk more about oils and help you get started getting on the track to wellness along with me!
I’m loving my new, healthier lifestyle and it’s now my mission to help spread the word. The more people I can educate about health and wellness, the better!
