Cheers to the holidays! 🙌It's not quite Thanksgiving week yet, but as I talk to my patients, I'm hearing too many people worry about "blowing their diet" during the holidays. I say STOP 🙅 and enjoy the food, family, and fun. It's a once-a-year event, and if special foods are a part of your celebrations, enjoy and savor them.⠀
👉It's what you to the other 11 months of the year that counts‼️
My advice for eating your way through the holidays is to load up on as much good stuff as you can, and bump up your workouts from now until January. Fill your plate with lots of plants - And enjoy a slice of pumpkin pie, or a few Christmas cookies too. ⠀
Come January, you might be surprised to see that not only is your weight just fine, but also you've developed some healthy fitness habits. How nice to have a running start on those New Year's resolutions! ⠀
One of the healthy habits I've been working on this year is stress management. Too much stress causes an unhealthy inflammatory response and an increase in your blood pressure, and as I get older, I'm noticing the effects more and more. ⠀
My Magic Blood Pressure Reducing Juice hits the spot as an afternoon pick me up, and the beets and vegetable juice in it are high in nitrates, so it really does reduce your blood pressure. It's also an easy way to get a huge dose of veggies in.⠀
Start drinking this today, and you'll be doing something really good for your body, which kinda cancels out most of those holiday desserts.⠀⠀
Get the recipe on the blog. Just search BLOOD PRESSURE. Or type this in: https://cravingsomethinghealthy.com/how-to-reduce-blood-pressure-without-medication/⠀⠀

A little Mark Twain mixed with a little Rachel Hollis for you (me) this morning... Not the first time I have heard this... but it feels like the first time I am listening to this. #ItisEnough#IamEnough#riseup#newday#stopcomparing#Justgodoit "Stop comparing yourself. Stop comparing your life to hers, your relationship to theirs, stop holding your life up against someone else's because it doesn't serve you in ANY way. Comparison is the death of joy and the only person you need to outdo is whoever you were yesterday." #GirlWashYourFace
Oh sleep, sweet sleep. How much better life is when you get good, restful sleep 😴 Our bodies need that time to heal & rejuvenate, & without it our health suffers. I have a few things I personally do at night to make sure I get good sleep because I am a miserable human if I’m tired (I’m not in denial 🙋🏻♀️) & with this growing babe inside, I need all the help I can get. Here is what I do every night for sleep.
💤30 mins before I’m crawling into bed, I start the diffuser. Do this before your going to sleep so your room can already be filled with the wonderful aroma before you lay down (I shut all the doors to trap the smell in too 🤗). I don’t have a set diffuser blend I do every night, I mix it up based on what I’m feeling.
😴Then after I brush my teeth I will do 2 drops of Copaiba under my tongue to help calm my nervous system down & help my mind settle. I will also take a Serenity gel cap if I am wide awake & need some additional help slowing down.
💤Then I will put on some Serenity oil 💜 Always on the back of my neck, temples & wrists. I will either put Balance (If I have had a stressful day)or Serenity (if I really need a good nights rest) on my feet & put on socks.
🛏Last but not least I spray my pillows with a sleepy time bed spray. The blend varies every season based on my needs, this particular season has Breathe in it so that congestion doesn’t bother me in the night & wake me up.
*I use this in my daughters room too!*
Here is my current concoction:
✨25 drops Serenity
✨15 drops Copaiba
✨15 drops Breathe
✨12 drops Cedarwood
✨ 3/4 water
✨1/4 witch hazel
Make good, quality sleep a priority friend! Your body & mind will thank you (& so will the people who have to be around you every day 🤣). Do you have something special that you do to help you get a good night sleep??? Please share!!! 🛏 #sleepwithgumption 😴

Here’s a health tip to get you through the week! Take an Epsom salt soak. 🛀 Use 1-2 cups of epsom salt, 1 cup baking soda, a few drops of lavender and soak for at least 20 minutes! This will help remove toxins from your body, boost your magnesium, and help relieve stress and anxiety! During the “cold and flu” season months I recommend doing this at least once a week but you can definitely do it more! *Notice I buy my baking soda at Costco! They don’t mess around! 🙌😂

I’m living this... it’s time to #wakeup and #riseup . Truth bomb... I’ve been living/drowning in someone’s else opinion for way too long. Anyone else ever live there? Listening and believing 🤢 to the lie as they attacked my integrity and character. NOPE! 🤦🏻♀️ Not anymore. 🙋🏻♀️ “You did not wake up today to be a mediocre version of who your creator made you to be. Instead ask yourself, “How would the very best version of me live this day? How would she care for her family? How would she care for herself??” Then go out today and be THAT woman.” #GirlWashYourFace
Final day of the 3 day reset and I'm ready for some alternate food.
I love the reset though because
1. Gets me in the habit of eating more veggies and whole foods and
2. I always forget how much I over eat. This plan is balanced to 1500 cals a day and it took me 3 days to stop feeling starved.
It teaches you to have a stronger mind set than binge eating. And that it's not worth eating your feelings all the time.

Treat yo’self Tuesday! Dreaming of being back in the Maldives on my little slice of heaven and Taylor’s favorite nap hammock 😍😍. But seriously...self care is so important!
What do you do to take care of yourself?? Especially in this busy time of year, it’s so important to carve out some time for yourself and a little R&R so you can can take care of all your things and all your people!
Take a mini vacation, a spa day, or maybe just curl up on the couch with a book...whatever floats your 🍕😜 but be sure to take some time for you!
‘Tis the season.
There’s no way to rush the beginning process of El Fuego. Fruit, vegetables, herbs & spices are mindfully prepared.
The gallon jars of baby-Fuego steep for one full moon cycle, part of which is deep within the earth.
Then, every drop of fiery goodness is squeezed from the marc (plant materials that have been macerating in acv).
At this point, we kick it into gear - bottling it up so we can ship it on its way to your lovely self. In this photo, we’re shrinking neckbands onto the caps.
HOW TO MAKE INFUSED WATER AND THE BENEFITS?
Are you bored with water, want some flavor and increase your nutrient intake? How about trying some infused water? I am a big fan of anything that will motivate us to drink more water and replace those sugary drinks.
A doctor who understands the life of the clients we work with is a valuable asset to our organization. Tip Tuesday: find a good doctor - one that supports your medical decisions and personal health plan. #tiptuesday#justice61#childrenarenotsextoys#doctor
Some inspiration after listening to "Girl Wash Your Face" by Rachel Hollis and talking to a friend about it... Why is it, we as women, are always willing to break the promises we make to ourselves but will bend over backwards to keep our word to everyone else.
I am making the decision to commit to myself. Do better for me and therefore for my family. You can do this too! Think about it!!! What are you committing to do this week? Who are you committing to be? Don't make those promises lightly and think... "Well, I will try". I am going to get up at 5am... 22.214.171.124.1, GET UP! I am going to work out as soon as I get up, Get your butt moving! I am going to grow my business by 10% this month, I have to pick up the dang phone/computer!
What are you committing to this week?
You’re looking sexy in those blue light blocking glasses! Said nobodies husband 😂
Yep we have a lot of discussions about how awful they look on me but then I share how much they help my sleep! Does anyone else do quirky hacks to help them sleep 🙋♀️ .
Blue light is actually super important just not at night. It’s the light spectrum that is in the morning sun. The blue light signals to our bodies it’s time to wake up and get going for the day. So if you have troubles getting up in the morning go outside first thing for 20mins in the sunlight 🌞 and this will help significantly (even better paired with a morning walk). .
Why you want to block out blue light in the evening? Because the blue light spectrum signals your body to wake up it will suppress the natural production of melatonin in the evening which needs to build up over a few hours in order to get a good nights rest. Blue light is emitted from all our synthetic light 💡 fluorescent and led lights being the worst, (this includes your phone, tv and any smart devices). Incandescent are the best lights for the evening followed by halogens, but the still emit an amount of blue light .
And people are wondering why they aren’t sleeping well 🤷♀️ . 👀 spot the toddler meant to be in bed 🏃♂️
