Have you ever put yourself on the ‘back burner’ in order to be there for someone else? Has your health or happiness ever suffered because you weren’t looking out for your own best interests? Do you feel lost sometimes within your to-do list and lose yourself for days at a time?

If you said yes to any of these, you are in good company! Way too many of us have gone thru the same thing. Whether you are a wife putting your husband first, or a mom who all-of-the sudden only identifies herself as ‘a mom’, or an employee who gives so much at work that they forget to take a minute for your own sanity, we stand with you. Our health, our happiness, our inner-light, our self-ness, our peace, all suffer as a result of this sacrifice. I have said before, I am not impressed by the mommy-martyr. Even though it sounds a little mean, that is not how I intend it to be. What I am trying to say is that, being a martyr is the default. What is really hard, what is truly impressive, is the mom or lady or man or whatever that stomps their foot down and says, “What about me? I’m important damnit!” THAT is the stuff right there.

But, we get it. It’s super hard, and we all fall into this from time to time. That is why we are creating a new group* called “Let’s ReYOUvenate”. We are incredibly excited about it and have been working hard to create valuable content for those who are interested. But, fore warning, this is not a spectator sport. This is for those of you who are serious about making a positive change in your life over a 30 day period. And, the good news, it doesn’t matter what kind of change you are looking for! Some of you might want to lose weight. Some of you might want to get organized. Some of you might want to live more consciously. Some of you might want to just be a part of a community doing something positive in their lives. Whatever your motivation, we honor that.

When:

The program will begin on May 4th and go until June 5th.

How can I join:

Because we want this to be a small, intimate group, it will not be open to the general public. Again, this is not meant for spectators. This is meant for people who are committed to making positive change in their lives. So, all you have to do is join Shaklee* with one of our regimen packs (current/active Shaklee members- check in with your distributor). We understand that each and everyone of you has unique health goals and that looks different for everyone. There is truly something for everyone with these healthy regimens. You will also need to contact the Shaklee distributor that you know and let them know “I’m in!” We would be more than happy to help you pick what is right for you.

What do you get in return:

-Amazing Shaklee products! Like I said, there is truly something for everyone. Each and everyone of these regimens are awesome.
-Free membership to Shaklee! With you membership you get 15-20% off of the products—FOR LIFE. There is never a renewal fee or a minimum purchase demand. Literally no strings attached.
-A community that cares! We are creating a community of like-minded individuals who are all trying to make a positive change. There will be friendship and guidance and support all along the way.
-Increased Accountability! (but not in a scary way) How many times have you tried to commit to something only to be frustrated and disappointed a week later. We will hold each other accountable by having regular check-ins, and mini-tasks to keep you on track.
-Chances to win prizes and free products! At various times throughout the month, we will be offering incentives and giving you chances to win a prize at the end of the 30 days. We want to reward your effort and commitment!
-One on one coaching! I will be offering coaching sessions to anyone that feels like they need a little extra support. Maybe you are confused about what to eat. Maybe you just can’t seem to find yourself past your sweat pants and to-do lists. Whatever your struggle may be, I will do my best to help and support you. You will always have a listening ear.

On the fence?:

Well hop off! I know change is hard and you are worried about committing to something new. But, there is nothing to lose. Let’s jump in and have some fun together. Not to mention, there is (and always will be) a 100% money back guarantee. If you don’t like the products you buy, return them. No stipulations, no qualifiers, just call and say you weren’t satisfied. EZ PZ.

****I am an independent distributor for Shaklee. I (as well as the girls listed above) make money by selling Shaklee products. I am not a doctor, and encourage you to check with your doctor before starting a new health program. Shaklee is committed to safety, but it is always wise to check with your health care professional. All of the things I share are my personal opinions and experiences.****

With Earth Day being just around the corner I wanted to (felt compelled to really) tell you about the best cleaners in the entire world!* I really do believe that. I have never been a person who cared too much about their cleaning products, nor did I really consider the effect they have on the planet and my home environment. That is, until I found out about Shaklee. I have always tried to live as ‘green’ as possible, and I was super obsessed with my family’s health, but I never closed the loop with regards to the air that we breathe in our home 90% of our time. DUH! Does it make sense to ‘clean’ our homes with products that you are not supposed to get on your skin, or breathe in? I think our common sense tells us no.

Shaklee is an amazing company that truly puts the planet and people’s safety above anything else. In fact they were the first company to be certified Climate Neutral! That means, if you factor in every single part of Shaklee’s operations, they leave no carbon footprint! Back in the 1960’s, Shaklee came out with Basic H, one of the first all natural, organic, and bio-degradable cleaners ever. Fastforward to 2015 and there are even more amazing products to join Basic H.

Basic H2 is a super concentrated cleaner that has no fumes and is safe for everyone in the family (kids, pets). It has over 1,000 uses and hasn’t let me down yet!

When I switched to Shaklee, I got rid of ALL of my other chemical cleaners and now this is what under my sink looks like. I WISH I would have taken a before picture, because it was completely filled with every cleaner you could think of!

And, because it is super concentrated, it will last you FOREVER. Okay, not forever, but I am going on 1 year and I am not even half way thru my bottle of Basic H2.

Shaklee also has something called a “Get Clean Kit” and it is really your 1-stop-shop for cleaners. It comes with everything you need: Basic H2, spray bottles, Laundry supplies, Dish Soap and Dishwasher detergent, all the accessories you need, cleaning cloths and scrubbers, etc. Everything in the kit is safe, non-toxic, no fumes, bio-degradable, etc. It is an amazing deal and most of the products will last you for months or longer. We have a family of four and I order most of these things only a couple times a year (except the basic h2 which lasts much, much longer). When you compare these products to the conventional store bought cleaners, there is really no contest.

And, because it is Earth Month (it really should have it’s own month!), I am offering a special. Anyone who orders a Get Clean Kit by the end of the month, is going to get a FREE Scour Off and receive a FREE membership! Memberships get you a discount on all Shaklee products and never need to be renewed and there are no minimum order rules.

The Scour Off is a scrubbing paste (made from Raspberries!) that is also non-toxic but works better than any chemical-filled cleaner I have ever used. Think tough stains, ovens, showers, etc. Here are the Before and After pictures of my shower floor. Brief history- we had this stain on our shower floor forever. I bleached it, I used scrubbing bubbles, I used some ammonia stuff, and nothing! It wouldn’t come off and so I had given up. I figured we would just need to replace our shower and ignore it until then. Well, I am happy to report, 2 mins. with gentle scrubbing with Scour Off and it was GONE! This stuff is like magic.

So, like I said, I am throwing in a Scour Off and Free Membership for anyone that joins with a Get Clean Kit in April. And, as always, Shaklee has a 100% Money Back guarantee! If you don’t like your kit, they would be happy to refund your money.

***I am an independent distributor for Shaklee. I make money on sales from these products and links. I am speaking of my personal experience with these products and how -I- think they are the best. This is my opinion of course.

A year or so ago, I wrote a blog about my relationship with hats. I joked about how I love them but feel dumb sometimes and am not usually confident when out in public in a hat. Well, the other day I saw that a friend of mine sent me an image via pinterest. It was this image:
FullSizeRender (14)

Who knows how long that sat there. I am to Pinterest like most people are to New Year’s Resolutions: super fanatical for about 4 days and then completely forget about it. Anyways, I see this image and it was like a lightning bolt. If I could put myself in a nutshell, this image would be my nutshell. These are the things I am passionate about. I am serious about my vegetables, squats are what keep your ass from eternal saddness, there is nothing I hate more than boys that are mean to girls, and I LOVE to rock some frickin’ lip stick! But this was not always the case…

You know how when people say things like “man, I wish I could be 24 again” or “I would love to go back to college days”? I disagree with those people. I am so much healthier and happier now than I was in my 20’s. Back then, the only vegetables I got were the shreds of lettuce on my Jimmy John’s sandwiches. I never worked out (dancing on bars count?). I let a few boys treat me badly, and treated some badly myself. And, the only lip game I had was Chapstick medicated.

You see, I didn’t know who I was. I didn’t know what I wanted. Half the time I was trying to make others happy, the other half I was trying to make myself happy in dumb ways. I didn’t know how to be me. I was always afraid of ‘looking stupid’. I didn’t take fashion risks, because I felt dumb (what a waste of that 19 year old body!). I didn’t want to wear lip stick because what if I picked the wrong color or what if someone thought I was just trying to get attention or what if people thought I was trying to look ‘cool’ but it back fired and…. Crazy right? Welcome to the brain of an insecure college chick.

The best part about my 30’s is that I figured out a lot about myself. I figured out that I care about my health and well being. I figured out that I am a feminist and I don’t like to hang out with those that aren’t. I figured out that lip stick is fun and sexy and that I don’t care if others think differently. I figured out that I like to challenge my body and rediscovered my love of sports and physical activity. I figured out that I love to have fun and be loud and be myself and if people judge me for that- it’s none of my business.

When I recently started my new business, I had a lot of hang ups. I worried about whether I would be bothering people. Or that people would think this business is stupid. Or that no one would ever buy anything from me. Or that people would un-friend me because they would get sick of my posts. Welcome to the mind of secure 30-something that still lets that insecure 20-something girl pop up now and then. But, you know what, I’m all good. The business is good. Vegetables are good. The men in my life are good. And my lip stick game is on-point.

I don’t know when I realized the most important thing in the universe which is: love yourself, nothing else matters. Everything will work out. Everything is going to be okay. It might not be exactly how you pictured, but that’s okay. We live in a universe of abundance and there is more than enough good for all. Trust your gut and follow your heart. Okay, that is more than 1 thing, but you get my point.

I have a birthday this week and I am not even the slightest bit concerned. If this is what ageing is like, I am all-in.
