Monday Morning Rambles: Happy Memorial Day!

Hello my loves! Before I even begin this post, I want to thank the families of the men and women who have served our country and unfortunately gave their lives as well. I salute you!

I hope you guys are having a wonderful holiday weekend. Mine has been pretty great…I ran 3.5 miles ayer and then enjoyed the evening with my family. I love seeing the bond developing with the younger generation. Some of my favorite memories were having bbq’s at my grandmas house or the park and it’s nice to see them experience this as well. 

Last week I mentioned that I want to try to feature a different doTERRA oil every week and this week I want to talk about Slim & Sassy

Slim & Sassy includes a blend of grapefruit, lemon, peppermint, ginger, and cinnamon essential oils and it is supposed to help you calm your cravings (or in my case, crazy binges haha). I decided to try this over the weekend because that is when I have the hardest time staying on track and I was impressed. The bottle stated to drop 4 drops into 4 ounces of water but I found that way too strong so instead I have been using 1-2 drops in my 28 ounce bottle and I love it. I had my family try it as well and they also enjoyed the flavor. And hey, if I use less drops…that means the bottle will last me much longer so winning! Ha. If you are having problems with cravings, I would give this shot.

Monday Morning Rambles: Why I Decided to Become a doTERRA Wellness Advocate.

Hello my loves! I  have some exciting news to share with you guys today.

I decided to finally join the Doterra Family and become a Wellness Advocate!
To be honest I wanted to join this community for quite some time but I was scared and hesitant to take the plunge.

 I have been using these oils for about a year and absolutely love them!
Anyone that knows me, knows that I am a horrible sales person and don’t like to “push” people into anything. I try to steer clear of selling things unless I am TRULY passionate about it and that is how I feel about these products.
A couple of weeks ago, I had an “Aha moment” and I knew that I wanted to share this with other people. Remember when I attended the Yoga Journal Conference a few weeks ago? Well the morning of the event, I woke up so sick and my stomach was in knots…I thought I was going to have to skip the event. I then remembered that my friend Alyson who is also a wellness advocate sent me a pamphlet with all the various uses for the oils. I looked up “digestive problem” and found that the Peppermint oil helps with this issue. I was skeptical but gave it a shot (added it to my water and rubbed on my stomach) and It worked! I was able to go to the conference and fully enjoy myself which you guys saw on my post.

Some of you may not know what doTERRA oils are so here is some information from their site:
CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® — An Innovative Standard
dōTERRA CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade essential oils represent the safest and most beneficial oils available in the world today. For an oil to be CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade the oil must be:
  • Pure and natural, with aromatic compounds carefully extracted from plants
  • Free from fillers or artificial ingredients; no dilution of active qualities
  • Free of contaminants, pesticides, or chemical residues
  • Rigorously tested for standards of chemical composition
  • Cross tested using mass spectrometry and gas chromatography to ensure exact purity and composition potency
  • Sourced by a global network of leading essential oil chemists and growers to ensure correct species, growth in ideal environments, and that raw plant materials were carefully harvested at the right time
Like I said before, I am very excited about this new journey and can’t wait to share it with you guys!

Monday Morning Rambles…Highs and Lows

Good morning my loves!  I hope everyone is having a wonderful Monday thus far.

On this week’s MMR, I speak about some highs and lows that my family experienced last week including a new addition to my family and my mom’s health scare.

I also talk about heading to Brooklyn to have a housewarming dinner with Amber and the handsome Chili!

Din din

So what do two healthy living bloggers do on a Saturday night? Duh we watched Fed Up! If you have not watched it already, I highly recommend it. It is was not really “eye opening” for us since we are both health coaches but for the average American who is trying to make some healthy changes, I think this is perfect for them. I hope it saves some lives. Still pissed that Congress considers pizza a vegetable (I have long rant about it on vlog).

I hope you enjoy my vlog below…
