My Next Chapter

Take a Leap

It’s  finally time to take that leap…

Some of you know but others not yet so here’s the deal — but first a HUGE thank you and shout out to my biggest supporter and ever loving husband.  Ivan, I would never be brave enough to do this without you standing by my side so thank you for believing in me and supporting me and my dreams – I will always love you! ♥

As of this Friday – I will no longer be commuting 4+ hours a day and will gain TONS of family time! I have to say though that while I’m super excited to be taking this leap I’m also a bit scared but I’m confident in that things will continue to fall into place as they have been these past two months.

So what next??  The simple response = Health & Wellness Coaching.  I am in the process of obtaining my certification as a personal trainer as well as a fitness nutritionist through NASM.  However, it doesn’t stop there.  I have been blessed to have been introduced to this amazing product Liquid BioCell by Jusuru Int’l as well as Young Living Essential Oils.

Liquid BioCell is the exclusive, highly bioavailable liquid form of BioCell Collagen® TF, which is a clinically researched, multi-patented nutraceutical ingredient that helps the body maintain healthy connective tissues, flexible joints and youthful looking skin. Medical professionals and nutritionists are calling it a new generation of “super ingredients”. Liquid BioCell is made from a single natural source and utilizes a patented Bio-Optimized™ process, which ensures rapid absorption. Numerous clinical studies support its safety, bioavailability and effectiveness. It is 100% natural.

This stuff is truly AMAZING!  Everyone over the age of 25 should be on it!! There’s also a pet line too!  Be sure to check out my new site solely based on products from Jusuru at

Also – if you haven’t heard of or tried Young Living Essential Oils, be sure to check out my YLEO site at   YLEO have helped my friends and family stay healthier through all of the germy seasons and have replaced some of the toxic chemicals that we all use on a regular daily basis.

There will be more to come in time as things fall into place but I just wanted to give everyone a quick update.  Thank you all for your continued support & love!

Drop It and Get Healthy….

Thank You

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 Committed
Stay Focused &
Stay Strong!!

Weekend Rewind….


I really hate not feeling well and not being able to get my running and workouts in and my blog posts done but sometimes we just need to take a few steps back….

This weekend started out really good!  I started Saturday morning off with a real early 5 mile and change run in with a great friend, then helped to host a Young Living Essential Oils open house event and ended up with my left knee really hurting 😦

Sunday began with Sunday School for the kids, followed up with a visit and dinner with some other great friends and finished up with me not feeling well 😦

Woke up this morning with my knee feeling better but with my chest and throat on fire!  So….still no running or working out yet but so ever grateful for the blessings of the weekend.

Looking forward to getting better and back out there REAL soon!

If any of you have tried Young Living Essential Oils you’ll understand.  These oils are just SO AMAZING!!!  I have three daughters, ages 16 months and 7 & 9 years old and I have had such great success with the oils on them, myself and my husband.  Yes, my husband – the skeptic that he is – uses them on a regular basis and has admitted that they work (#winning!!!).

If you haven’t tried them and would like to learn more feel free to browse my webpage at or email me if you have any questions.
