Emotions are high this morning; I’m heading to Adelaide tonight (for 24hrs, people, please calm down), but the kids - especially Ava - get hyper-emotional when someone leaves, which comes out as over-excitement, generally being loud, oversensitive feelings and picking more fights than usual. I’ve got Clary Sage and Wild Orange diffusing and will have it pumping when the big kids get home from school. (I also rolled up Ava’s spine with Console and Neroli to support her and help her feel less anxious, more confident, happier and less ‘I don’t want to go to school-y’).
So Clary Sage - great for promoting healthy hair (add it to your conditioner or serum), calming nerves, supporting restful sleep, supporting your body in labour, and generally supporting all the hormones related your cycle (massage it into your belly, over the ovaries and at your ankles).
It’s BOGO time again - buy one, get one. So that means today if you grab this oil, you’ll score yourself a free bottle of Marjoram. We primarily use this one for muscle support - post-training and for soothing general muscle tension (in a blend with some other oils like lemongrass, ice blue, copaiba and Frankie), you can also use it for supporting growing kids and massage this one into your belly with your Clary Sage for a soothing effect during your bleed. Plus it’s great for supporting your body’s natural immune responses and can be used in your cooking (great for basting your roast chook).
If you already have your membership going, log in to your account and grab your Clary Sage - your Marjoram will be automatically added as you checkout. The best way to make this most of this special is to order via Loyalty Rewards. If you’re new, follow my link and hit “join and save” - the savings on your Marjoram will more than pay for your membership and you’ll receive ongoing 25% off retail pricing plus loads of guidance as you start walking this wellness path.
Giving GOD ALL THE PRAISE & GLORY Excited & Grateful for what GODS about to do in Chapter 39. The pass 39 years has molded me into a WOMAN OF STRENGTH, EXCELLENCE, and GROWTH & DEVELOPMENT IN MY NEW INDUSTRY. I thank GOD, MY PARENTS, MY DAUGHTERS, MY SIBLINGS FAMILY & FRIENDS for all the prayers & words of encouragement in this SEASON that was set to be my worst , BUT GOD didn’t see fit. “In spite of calamity,
He still has a plan for me
And it's working for my good
And it's building my testimony”
I confess: changing your lifestyle to get healthier is scary.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I know first hand how hard it is to want to take the steps to finally lose weight, control your carvings, feel energetic, have a regular digestive system, and sleep better at night.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I was there. I wanted to change, but was scared that the change wouldn't last and that on the other side, disappointment and shame would be waiting because I didn't do the full program or meet my health goals.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But every single time I chose to control fear instead of letting fear control me, I always came out victorious - not in the way I originally wanted, but a better way.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Every time I chose to make a change in my eating, exercise, sleep patterns, gut health, natural products, and other habits, I became one step closer to my dream body, to my dream health.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sweet friends, don't let fear hold you back from taking the steps you want to and know you need to take in your health.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today is the day that you look fear in the face and say it has no place in your life. Today is the day you look at yourself in the face and tell yourself "I can do this and my body deserves this."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Share below what's ONE step you can take this week to move forward in your health goals!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And if you want support in that, I would love to help you reach your health goals in a joyful, lifegiving and sustainable way through my Whole30 Made Easy Program! Early bird ends this weekend so DM if you have questions or check out the IG bio link to join us!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
P.S. And don't let fear hold you back from the Whole30 either - it could be JUST the thing you need to kick start or move one step forward towards your health goals this Fall :)
With less than 5 months left in the year, we should be finishing up our mid-year financial reviews! 🤓🧾⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
According to a specialist in personal finance issues, Shelly Gigante, there are 5 simple steps one can take for their mid-year financial checkup:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. 𝗖𝗵𝗲𝗰𝗸 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗿𝗲𝘁𝗶𝗿𝗲𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝘁𝗿𝗶𝗯𝘂𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This should be at a minimum, the percentage of what your employer matches. AKA: do not leave free money on the table.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2. 𝗧𝗮𝗰𝗸𝗹𝗲 𝗱𝗲𝗯𝘁.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Mostly credit card debt with high interest, which can truly kill one’s budget. Always try and tackle your highest interest rate debt first, then move on to the next once that one is paid off.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3. 𝗛𝗼𝘄'𝘀 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗲𝗺𝗲𝗿𝗴𝗲𝗻𝗰𝘆 𝗳𝘂𝗻𝗱?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This would consist of three to six months worth of living expenses in liquid money. If you don’t have a savings fund yet, now is the perfect time to start working on it!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4. 𝗠𝗼𝗻𝗶𝘁𝗼𝗿 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝘀𝗽𝗲𝗻𝗱𝗶𝗻𝗴.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Categorize your spending, and write it down. This is the best way to budget, save, and set your prioritize straight.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
5. 𝗧𝗮𝗰𝗸𝗹𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝘁𝗮𝘅𝗲𝘀.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
By meeting with your tax professional now, instead of at the end of the year, you can potentially still maximize deductions and prevent future penalties.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you have already done your mid-year review, snap a picture and send it to me through direct message! I would love to look over your plans and see how I can be of help by polishing it and advising new things you might not have thought of before!⠀📅📈🗂⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

When the kids are literally bouncing off the walls... peace & calming. When mama is pulling her hair out... peace & calming. When the youngest throws a kicking screaming tantrum because I cut his food the wrong way... peace & calming. Literally, even just opening up this bottle and waving it around under my kid’s nose does the trick! 🙌
Got home late last night to a BUNCH of goodies waiting for me! These three...that Calm oil is going STRAIGHT UP to Clint’s room...and some new STICKER designs!! Can’t wait to share them with you...but first, unpacking! Do you do it right away or live out of your suitcase for a minute?

No se el cómo, solo se que me ENCANTA. Te AMO hasta el infinito!❤️
♡One of my most annoying characteristics is my inability to hold onto anger. I fell asleep last night telling myself to not forget the pain, calling to mind the multiple times the same person has repeatedly hurt me in the same way. I woke up and found I had already forgiven those involved. However, my boundaries are firmly in place.
I have instructed my daughters throughout the years to pay attention to how those around them treat others, and not to believe for one moment they will not eventually treat them the same way. I failed to listen to my own advice. People very clearly show you who they are. Believe them.
I know my ability to release anger is a gift. I forgive easily. I'll love you and hope you'll love me regardless of "shortcomings." However, I'm going to be firm in my boundaries, and not give others an opportunity to hurt me again. Because if they do, it's just as much my fault for opening the door.
This is where I am right now in the healing journey. I'm sure it will continue to evolve. Thank you to those who have given me the toughest lessons, you have helped me grow the most 🙏🏻♡

I’ve deemed today “self-care Saturday.” Well, that was my plan until my car battery died, delaying my plans for the day. 🙄 Thankfully, I was able to get away and spend a couple of relaxing hours this afternoon, only being responsible for myself. 🙋🏼♀️ .
Part of taking care of others means taking care of ourselves. Pouring into ourselves the things we need in order to be more present to pour into the people we love. 💕 Whether that means getting outside and spending some time with nature 🌿, getting a massage/mani/pedi 💅, sitting at a coffee shop with your nose in a book 📚 , blasting music and singing in your car by yourself 🎶(...or maybe all of the above), do what you need to de-stress, unplug, and come back refreshed and ready to love on your people.☺️

This is our sweet Rosi at the Young Living Farm in Mona, Utah. It’s hard to grasp just how beautiful and serene this place truly is until you are blessed to see it first hand. Young Living is one the most amazing companies and places we’ve ever visited. The smell of the lavender distilling is insane and unlike anything I’ve ever smelled, y’all! All of this is the real deal! If you want to come with us on this journey, everyone is welcome! Let’s go frolic in the lavender next summer! June 17-20, 2020! 📷: @mamarosi

Day 13 RESULTS!!
Looking at these photos makes me so darn proud of myself! Proud of these early mornings, proud of every drop of sweat, proud of my discipline!
We are currently on day 20 and these were taken on day 13. Turns out taking photo’s every 10 days isn’t really doable but taking them when I can is still important because photo’s do so much more justice than the number on the scale.
TBH, I didn’t even weigh myself before MM100 but I know 1000% that change is happening, ya’ll!!!
I was so ready to make a change. I’ve been in this mind set of “I can do better for myself” for so long and I finally got sick and tired of not being consistent and not seeing results.
So here I am. All of me. Totally and completely going for it because I deserve better and am possible of anything! And sister, you are too! Why not you? Why not all of us! We can ALL do this!

Whether its life insurance or critical illness if you wait too long you may not be eligible anymore.
Rest. It’s something I don’t do well, but as we leave our beach vacation today (😭😭), I’m realizing how much my body (and maybe even more my mind) needed this week. Guys, I took a nap one day. Never, do I ever, do that. I sat on this beach a looked, and stood, and swam, and played...it was really nice. As we are looking towards the fall and starting back at school (we homeschool) and holidays and winter (ahhh) and just all of it, I’m thankful for the respite this week was and feel (almost) ready to tackle our new year/schedule. Aaannd I’ve got some new goodies to add to the Etsy shop soon that I can’t wait to share with you!! See you Monday!

Back to School! Our first week is in the books and we are wiped out! Don’t forget to share your love and appreciation with your teachers!
We made these cute little gifts for my youngest’s new teachers to show them how grateful we are for them. A bottle of citrus vitality, a cute vintage-like hobnail glass, grapefruit lip balm, a gift card, and a handwritten note for each of them with best wishes for an awesome year. We’ve always been so blessed to have the best teachers in our schools.
Love your people and love them well, always show appreciation when someone loves on and invests their time and wisdom into your littles and helps mold them into the adults they are so quickly becoming. 📷: @m0nam00re
Y’all. I made my first Balance Complete smoothie and am in love!! 😋
I followed the Morning Happy Berry Recipe:
+ 2 scoops Balance Complete
+ 1 cup frozen berries (I had a bag of Pineapple, Banana & Raspberry)
+ 1 cup milk of choice (I used whole)
+ 2 oz NingXia Red
I’m trying my best not to chug it, it’s so delicious!! Tomorrow I’m going to do just the Balance Complete with milk. I tasted the power by it’s self and wowza it’s tasty and very vanilla! Plus it’s toddler approved 😂 I had to make a special one for my little dude so he wouldn’t keep stealing mine! 📷: @presleyanne.essentials
Sigh.....first day of high school .....from first day of pre school. So bittersweet! Good Luck Carter! Hard to believe I have twins in College now and my last one starting High School.

Get yours here:
One of the biggest reasons I began this wellness journey is because I had been hearing about so many synthetic ingredients that are in common household products. I kept thinking "why am I trying to eat clean, exercise, drink lots of water, etc....but I'm not trying to use clean products??"
I was concerned for the long term health effects for myself, my husband, my children, and frankly everyone.
Since when did it become necessary to add tons synthetic chemicals to our products?? These things have snuck into our products over the years and have left us with increasing rates of allergies, asthma, cancer, depression, infertility, and GI issues. 😱😱😱
I am speaking as a concerned parent, because I care about my babies and I care about your babies... THIS IS NOT OKAY!
Do the benefits of these chemicals really outweigh their risks?? HELL NO. Studies have come out linking these chemicals to many negative health effects (already listed), but many are still unknown... and I don't know about you, but I don't want to find out by using them!!
Thanks to greenwashing (see my highlight) and lax government regulations, we cannot trust company marketing to tell us the truth about our products. We must read the ingredient labels to get the most accurate information. Which means we must be knowledgeable about what to look out for... so over the next week I want to share some things I have learned about which chemicals to look out for and why as well as alternatives I have found and trust.
There will also be a 🎉🎉𝐠𝐢𝐯𝐞𝐚𝐰𝐚𝐲🎉🎉 at the end of the week for anyone who participates in this important conversation ❤❤❤
I hope you can join me!!!
A few weeks ago my husband asked me “What are we going to do when RutaVaLa goes out of stock?” My answer was showing him my stash. 😂 #notoutofstockatmyhouse . I love stories of when the husbands start appreciating the oils. Even for the most skeptical ones, it always happens naturally with time. It’s hard to deny the science and chemistry inside these little bottles.
We apply RutaVaLa to the bottom of our feet every night the second we get into bed. Most nights I then go wash my face and brush my teeth and we have a little inside joke going to see if my husband is asleep by the time I’m done. Good ol Rutavala at work 💪🏻. ⠀⠀
RutaVaLa promotes deep relaxation of the mind and body. It eases tension and relieves stress. Most people either love or hate the smell. It has a bitter scent with a hint of lavender. The smell has grown on me but it’s still an “only apply to feet” oil for me 😂. ⠀⠀
The star of this blend is Rue oil. It is extremely rare and difficult to find a good quality Rue oil. Rue is extremely relaxing and helps release tension from the body. ⠀⠀
Valerian is another component in this blend. The sesquiterpenes, valernic acid and valerone are the active constituents in this oil that help create a calming effect on the central nervous system. ⠀⠀
Topped with some lavender in the RutaVaLa blend and it’s a powerhouse for supporting the body to fall and stay asleep!
Tell me if you are also a RutaVaLa user!!!! 🙋♀️
RutaVaLa is not recommended for use by anyone who is pregnant due to the Rue oil in this blend.

💪🏻Ningxia Red Anyone?💪🏻
“The amount of antioxidants in your body is directly proportional to how long you will live.” -Dr. Richard Cutler, former Director of the National Institute of Aging.
Do you guys know about “Blue Zones”? This term refers to geographic areas of the world in which people have low rates of disease and live longer than anywhere else ! Guess what researchers have found as one of the similar factors of these areas....ANTIOXIDANTS! These long living people eat diets full of whole plant foods which are full of antioxidants!
Antioxidants are nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals, and enzymes, that help fight off the damaging effects of free radicals. The body experiences a natural phenomenon called oxidation every day, which can produce harmful byproducts called free radicals. If left uncontrolled, these free radicals can damage cells, much like the chemical reaction that takes place when a half-eaten apple turns brown. Free radical damage can be accelerated by pollution, stress, toxins, smoking, and alcohol.
Why drink Ningxia Red?
Um hello antioxidants!! It is the highest known protection against the dangerous superoxide free radicals, as documented in the S-ORAC test conducted by Brunswick Laboratories. It is rich in ellagic acid, polyphenols, flavonoids, vitamins, and minerals. In addition, it has 18 amino acids, 21 trace minerals, beta-carotene, and vitamins B1, B2, B6, and E. Guys...drink 2 oz of this a day and you are taking in the equivalent of 1600 blueberries, 46,000 almonds, and 200 oranges and apples . You can thank me later for the change your health is about to feel after consistently drinking this gold!
Photo taken from the Ningxia Bar at Convention last month ❤️💪🏻

but are instead taken away...
we march, we declare the truth of life in the womb, and we beg for mercy.
