First of all I have to give thanks to each and every one of you for following me on my journey so far – I couldn’t keep this blog going if it weren’t for all of you and your support! So — THANK YOU! ♥
Also — a BIG THANK YOU to my ever loving and supporting husband, I wouldn’t have made it this far with any of this without his love and support! THANK YOU HONEY!! ♥
Ok – onward….
I started this blog about a year and a half ago with the intention of helping motivate others to eat healthier and live healthier lifestyles AS WELL AS to keep ME accountable and on track =)
In the process not only have I lost 15 pounds and gotten stronger (and still going) but I’ve also discovered a few other ways to help keep me and my family healthy and I wanted to take this moment to share them with all of you.
As some of you may know I absolutely LOVE coffee! I wake up with coffee and go to sleep with coffee most nights. What I’ve learned though is that there is a MUCH healthier coffee out there and it costs LESS than Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donuts!! What???? I know, it’s crazy!!! Have any of you heard of Organo Gold Coffee? “Organo Gold is the only North American company who has partnered with the largest certified organic Ganoderma plantations in the world to bring this “treasure of life” to the Western world.” “Once the Ganoderma mushrooms have been transformed, it is added to the Organo Gold family of products, including beverages such as our Gourmet Black Coffee, Gourmet Café Latte, Gourmet Café Mocha, and Organic Green Tea.” If you’d like to learn more or sample one of the coffees let me know!
Next — Young Living Essential Oils — well, what can I say??? All I can really say is that these oils have truly changed mine and my families lives. We are so much happier and healthier since using YLEO, they are truly a blessing! Did you know that the Bible, both the New and Old Testaments, contains tons of references (over 200) to essential oils, incense, ointments, and other aromatics? They were used in religious rituals, for anointing and for supporting the health of people. In the Old Testament Moses was given a recipe for a “holy anointing oil”. It included the essential oils of myrrh, cinnamon, calamus, and cassia as well as pure olive oil. It is well known that the wise men of the New Testament, upon visiting the Christ child, gave him frankincense and myrrh. Another well known incident is when Mary anointed the feet of Jesus with a large amount of the expensive essential oil of spikenard and then wiped his feet with her hair. I find it extremely interesting and inspiring that they used essential oils in Biblical times.
So….with all of that being said — this past year and a half have been quite a turning point for me and my family. We are all focusing on living healthier lifestyles both from the inside as well as from the outside. If you would like to learn more about the changes we’ve made in our lifestyles please let me know – I’ll be happy to connect offline!
Stay Focused &
