2016 Slim & Sassy Lifestyle Change Competition

12548978_926873690721513_3893290594563130577_n

I received an email this morning that my registration for the 2016 Slim & Sassy Lifestyle Change Competition has been approved. I am so excited about this, I know this is going to be my year. I am ready to meet my goal by my 50th birthday of being fit and healthy. I have already started using my Slim and Sassy products. I have gained 73 pounds over the past few years, my anxiety has been high, my motivation low and have not felt good about myself in a long time. I hate buying clothes, nothing fits right or looks good. I went out last night and bought myself a pair of running shoes and am ready to get started.

Here they are, don’t you love them?

349a6e97-2a73-44c3-9069-355aaf812cd8

Ready to go!

My tennis elbow is back, so  I can’t use my arm very much. I will start with walking until it gets better. I love to walk down by the beach and at parks, so hopefully on the weekends I can do that and then during the week I will walk around my neighborhood.

I would love to hear about what some of you are doing to lose weight and exercise. I hope you all have a great weekend.

Peace, Love and Balance,

Lavender Essential Oil

12540898_955803164513694_4795818381117399840_n

I would like to talk about Lavender Essential Oil. Lavender is the most used essential oil globally because it’s the most versatile essential oil. It’s most often used for its relaxing effects on the body but can also be used for cuts and bruises, stress, migraines, and emotional balance. If there is only one essential oil you need, this is it!

Emotional Benefits

Emotionally, lavender essential oil is said to be the oil of honest communication and expression. It calms a racing mind, allowing a person to settle into their heart and speak with gentleness and kindness. It also eases anxiety or fear, including fears of rejection, and allows a person to feel present, calm, and engaged in healthy ways. It increases a sense of security and peace, and in this way helps to build trust in one’s self and others.

Complimentary Oils

Lavender essential oil blends well with most oils (especially citrus oils), Clary Sage, and Geranium. 
Depending on your uses for this oil, substitutes may include: Cardamom, Wild Orange, Frankincense, or Roman Chamomile essential oils.

Popular Uses of Lavender Essential Oil

  • Add a few drops of Lavender to pillows, bedding, or bottoms of feet for a restful night’s sleep.
  • Keep a bottle of Lavender on hand for minor burns, cuts, and scrapes.
  • Freshen your linen closet, mattress, car, or the air by combining Lavender with water in a spray bottle.
  • Add to bath water to soak away stress or apply to the temples and the back of the neck to ease muscle tension.
  • Use in cooking to soften citrus flavors and add a flavorful twist to marinades, baked goods, and desserts.
  • Lavender can help you to feel more grounded and focused, helping you concentrate and think clearly when used aromatically throughout the room or home, or just on your body.
  • Diffuse pure lavender oil in the air or inhale directly for at least 30 seconds as needed to manage mood.

       One of my favorite drinks to make for a party is Lavender Lemonade.

this_purple-tinted_lemonade_can_cure_your_worst_headache-inline

I use fresh Lemons, Lavender essential Oil, Blue Agave and Water.

Even my Puppy likes Lavender!

It calms her down and helps her sleep.

Here is a great video to watch

I would love to know what some of your experiences have been with Lavender Essential Oil.

MPORTANT NOTE ON QUALITY

Not all oils are created equal. Because of a lack of industry standards and a lack of regulation on terms such as “natural” or “pure”, much of what you find at the drug store is NOT a therapeutic grade of essential oil and may lack real quality or even contain contaminants or adulterants (way more common than you’d think).

A LOT goes into creating a high quality essential oil. A good brand should follow these guidelines:

  • Proper plant varieties
  • Each plant grown indigenously for the healthiest plant
  • Grown without chemical pesticides, herbicides, etc
  • Harvested with precise timing to ensure peak properties
  • Extracted with proper temp and pressure to preserve oil molecules
  • Third-party testing of every batch
  • Stand behind the internal use of their oils

A little bit of progress

Happy Tuesday,

The first day I started on my new journey was 1/9/16, 10 days ago. So far I have lost 5 lbs and no inches. What I have done so far is give up alcohol (wine), for the most part. I had a party to go to on Saturday and did drink wine and did not eat the best, so I called it my cheat day. I have not been eating bread and am trying very hard to watch my sugar intake (I am not perfect).

I start off my day with a hot glass of water with a teaspoon of organic raw honey and 3 drops of lemon essential oil. I eat oatmeal or a protein shake for breakfast, I then have a small snack a couple hours later which is usually a piece of fruit or cucumbers. I then eat lunch which is usually a piece of protein and salad or veggies. I then sometimes have a afternoon snack a couple hours later, but not always. Dinner is usually around 6:00 pm and is usually a protein with salad or veggies. Last night we had a baked potato with cottage cheese and mixed veggies. I try not to eat after dinner, but if I do want something it is usually a 25 calorie sugar free jello or 60 calorie pudding cup. I then drink a cup of Chamomile tea with Lemon, Orange or Lavender essential oil before bed.

One of my secret weapons that I use before every meal is Slim & Sassy®. Slim & Sassy® Metabolic Blend is a proprietary formula of CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® essential oils designed to help manage appetite between meals. Slim & Sassy includes a blend of grapefruit, lemon, peppermint, ginger, and cinnamon essential oils. I either add 8 drops to 16 oz. of water (glass or stainless steel) and drink between my meals throughout the day  or take 3 to 5 drops in a veggie cap before all meals. This helps to manage my hunger, calm my stomach, and lift my mood.

I am going to start adding walking and yoga to my schedule this week, I will let you know how it goes. I love walking and yoga, i just need to get motivated to do it. I stopped going to Curves about 6 months ago and it is so hard to get back into the swing of things.

Let me know what are some of the things you are doing to lose weight and stay motivated.

Peace, Love and Balance,
