My Secret

I like to sneak in workouts while I am working to burn a few extra calories for the day. Sometimes I take a walk with the child that I watch everyday or sometimes I do a workout video or use my bosses elliptical when he is napping. Whatever I do I try i stay as active as I can through out the day instead of just sitting at my desk all day.

Stay Active

I try to stay off my butt as much as possible. There are so many activities to take part in such as: walking, riding the bike, work with the dogs, work in the yard, etc.

No more yeast to promote a healthier digestive track!

If you have problems with common yeast infections, depression, anxiety, thrush, and cannot lose weight, keeping the yeast away might help. If you have been a person that has been on antibiotics for long periods of time, then your body may not have been able to stop some of your good yeast from turning into a fungus in your digestive system.

Maintain Soft Hair and Skin with Coconut Oil

Use Coconut oil for hair and skin: I put 1 tbsp of Coconut Oil to about a cup of my hair conditioner inside a bottle. Then I put it in my hair and on my skin. It hasn't made my hair oily either, but instead, leaves it very soft and supple. After I applied the coconut oil conditioner to my hair (and left it in and didn't wash out) I curled it in sponge curlers before bed then when I woke up, I had softly coiled hair. Very nice hair and pretty style if curled right.

Make a veggie, fruit, and protein drink to get all nutrients easily without eating three squares a day.

To stay healthy, I mix in a blender two fruits, two veggies, or even five sometimes, pinto beans (protein), one egg (protein), a sugar substitute, and greens. This makes about 2 cups.

Instead of worrying all day how I'm going to get all my nutrients from all my meals, I drink only this one drink, then the rest of the day, I eat one or two small meals.

Ways I Deal with Stress

After work I have a long commute home, to relieve the stress I crochet. Not only am I distressing before arriving home but I am accomplishing/creating something at the same time. At home when things become stressful, I play video games, listen to my favorite music, dance, crochet or talk a long brisk walk. Any hobby you enjoy can be relaxing and help with relieving stress.

Healthier Than Breath Mints...

Instead of using gum and breath mints...that have additives and various forms of sugar try whole cloves or a tiny piece of cinnamon bark for fresh breath. (no need to chew or swallow).
Added benefit: Save money!
