4 Tips to Help you Cut the Sugar

Jut say no to SUGAR!!

This is not a new idea. Lots of popular diets have come to the conclusion that our sugar is out of balance in our Modern diet and this is the cause of our expanding waistbands.

Management of your Sugar and Carbohydrates is crucial for weight loss and your general health.

When our system gets overloaded with too many sugar and carbs, our cells start storing extra carbs as fat in our cells. Our cells love to store carbs, so they are very eager and ready when we over eat our carbs. If we eat a moderate or low carb diet, then we can burn those carbs before they get the chance to be stored as extra fat.

How to Go From 0 to 6 Figures Within 1 Year

Just about 3 years ago, I was stuck. I really wanted to be able to generate some additional income, but I didn’t know how! I looked into everything I could think of, and nothing really seemed to be a good fit for me (a stay at home mom with 2 small girls).

Because I was at home with small children, I didn’t have a ton of time available during the day. Given that, I REALLY needed to build a business FAST but gave me flexibility on how I did it!

With some experimentation, I was able to go from earning ZERO dollars to 6 figures in less than 1 year!

Christmas Reflections: The Best Gifts aren’t Under the Tree

Just two Christmases ago…

It was a really stressful time for us. Adam and I had to count, save and hoard all his vacation days just so we would have a week off at Christmas. He was working as a chemical engineer and had a great job!! but they were really strict about their vacation days and it just made everything hard to work around.

On top of that stress, all the extra costs associated with Christmas (even without going overboard with the gifts!)… it all quickly added up.

Our family was 1,000 miles away & we only saw them 2x a year – and just being that far away was really tough. We always were making sure we saved enough money to travel back to Louisiana to see family. Because we were that far away it would take two days to get there, hotel rooms and gas weren’t cheap.

Snowman Essential Oil Air Freshener

Christmas is the perfect time to get the whole family together and make really fun crafts to give. I found this Snowman Essential Oil Air Freshener from Designs by Miss Mandee and I just knew it would be a big hit!

This time of year is a great time to teach our kids about giving and not just getting what is on their own Christmas list – plus if your kids are anything like mine… they LOVE craft time! My girls love it when they can make something and give it to someone they love.

One reason this idea stuck out to me is because we love using essential oils to freshen our whole house naturally. About 10 years ago, we started making steps to live a more natural life… and that started with eating whole foods and quickly moved to using essential oils to remove some chemicals and toxins from our home (for cleaning and freshening).  Plus, Essential Oils also can make really great DIY gifts just in time for Christmas and these Snowman Air Fresheners were really fun to make (plus the girls got to practice their cutting skills).

DIY Eucalyptus Bath Salt Recipe

Christmas is just around the corner, so I wanted to share this simple DIY Eucalyptus Bath Salt recipe that makes a great gift to give or to make for yourself.

Recently, I have learned so much about how important it is for our health to soak in a salt bath… and I know in this fast paced world sometimes a bath is just needed to relax.

For best results you want to soak for at least 20 minutes and best results would be for 40 minutes.

Epsom Salts

We chose Epsom salts because of the extra benefits of magnesium. When I was pregnant, I developed a deficiency in magnesium and my midwife told me to start taking epsom salt baths 3x a week to help. They worked so well – I was amazed! I was having trouble sleeping and restless leg syndrome (both common in pregnancy) and the baths helped so much.
