Cough Tea

It’s that time of year. 

The time that, to me, is worse than spring. The time that brings the fall cough! 

You know the one. The one that never really goes away and you’ve had so long you’re not sure when it first appeared. It’s the same one that you don’t want to go to the doctor for because you’re positive it’s just something that has blown about with the change of seasons. 

I like to call it the “allergy faker.” 

Like Carly with her constant sinus fight, I have the constant cough fight. And although I always win, the shorter I have to deal with it the better.  

I also have to think about the fact that I have a child and he and his friends are in and out constantly, and I’d really prefer they not share anything with me. Lord knows no parent wants to start that viscous circle of sick. 

So, that’s where my favorite cough-away recipe comes in. It’s delicious, aids sleep and it’s for adults only! 

Wellness Tea and Whiskey, two new best friends.  





This is genius, if I do say so myself.  The benefits of this cup of awesome seem to be endless.  

You're getting aid with immunity boosting properties and stress reduction from the tea, honey, Essential Oils..and even the bourbon - solely based on what studies you read and grandma's old wives tales.  

The Essential Oils used in this, as always, are pure food grade quality and are part of the Young Living Vitality Line.  Both lemon and peppermint have throat soothing and calming, natural benefits to help soothe that . 

This specific tea will most likely naturally boost your energy, making this a definite day time tea.  If you want a night time tea I would recommend going with a Spiced Apple Cider Tea like this.  

Well, I hope you have a new favorite cough relief drink. I for one and going to make some now.  Sleep will be peaceful.  

Be sure to come back as we have 3 more days of tea in store for you.

I'll be back soon!

I Ate The Damn Cake And Lost 21 Pounds

Today is a good day. No, a GREAT day.

This morning, I stepped on the scale and was amazed and ecstatic to see that I am officially 21 POUNDS LIGHTER since beginning my Intermittent Fasting journey at the end of January 2018. See the difference?

I've talked before about how I found IF and started my weight loss journey if you want to check it out.

The day I started IF, I weighed in at 149.8 lbs, the heaviest I'd ever been in my life. Today, I am 128.8 lbs. I haven't been close to this for almost a decade. I never thought I'd get back to 130 lbs, much less BELOW it!




And I did it without depriving myself, without sacrificing my favorite foods and without ever once feeling guilty about anything I ate.

Sure, I probably could've reached this milestone sooner had I been a bit stricter with myself, but that kind of defeats the purpose of what IF is all about.


Dr. Jason Fung, who's books on Intermittent Fasting can be found on the Resources page, says “Don’t try to fit Life i…

The Path To Self-Awareness: How A Simple Statement From One Of My Idols Left Me Speechless

As you may have read in my bio, my day job slash other passion is being a radio personality and programmer.

Recently, I've launched a weekly podcast with a "recovering singer/songwriter" (as he likes to refer to himself) friend of mine, Jared "Pete" Gile. The podcast is called "The Troubadour" and focuses on Texas Country and Red Dirt artists.

Currently, I'm editing the episode that's set to drop this Sunday. I love this part of the process because I get to go back to an interview that may have been done months ago and almost be a passive listener while I cut out background noise, long pauses, and anything that might interrupt the flow of the conversation. This allows me to move from the interview chair to the fan stands and just appreciate hearing what these natural story tellers have to share.

Today, however, I came to a part in an interview with a man I could most likely safely call an idol in this genre of "Dancehall Dreamers" that …

Please Stop Asking When I'm Getting Married

"When are YOU getting married?"

This is a question that has begun to haunt me as an unmarried, unengaged woman in a long-term relationship. Well, that and "when are you going to have kids?" But, that's a subject to broach another time.

What do you say to that? It's not as if we've secretly gotten engaged, set a date and haven't told anyone. Responding truthfully with "I don't know" doesn't seem like the right response.

I've learned to brace myself at gatherings and social functions (especially weddings) for this inevitable question. 

Now, I am completely aware that the asker is simply trying to take an interest in my life and that the question is meant in a completely harmless way. I don't take offense to it, I just get asked this A LOT.

You know who doesn't get asked this question...like ever?

My boyfriend.

I recall an event a while back where I fielded this question about half a dozen or more times. On our way home, I asked …
