Get Up, Wake Up, Get Out!



Getting ready for the school day or work day can be hectic.  And let’s be honest, it sucks.  It’s hard enough somedays to get yourself up and going and now school is starting and you either have to get little people ready too and/or (if you don’t have kids) you still have to deal with that annoying school traffic again.

Now I know some of you are Mary Poppins in the morning.  I swear my husband is.  But I, I am more like a gremlin when it gets wet.  It’s not pretty or pleasant. And my child has inherited this trait from me.

So, to help us all survive, the diffusers must be turned on the second I’m awake.

And I’ll be honest.  99% of the time the same oil goes in all 3-4 diffusers every time.

Citrus Fresh baby!

All the way(s) everyday!

It has such a bright invigorating aroma that you can’t help but crack a smile and feel better.

(Quick insight, it’s blend contains lemon, orange, tangerine, mandarin, grapefruit and spearmint, so basically happiness in a bottle.)

This is definitely an oil you want to have.  Not only does it help you wake up and feel like your off to a great start, but because of each of the individual oils properties it can help you throughout the day just from using it in the morning.

By the time the kiddos are at school and you are at work, everyone’s creative brains may be functioning at higher levels, you may be more open to outside ideas and the prospect of having a mid-morning mental crash possibly are lowered.

I can tell you, they are for my munchkin and for me and the hubs.

Bonus: it’s a vitality line oil.  So, as you’re getting water for everyone to take with them, or tea, (never tried it in coffee) you can place a drop there to help you even further into the morning.

Basically, get up, wake up, and get out that door and feel good about it.

Happy kids, happy parents, happy day.

I’ll be back soon!

Introducing Miss Kelly

Welcome to the start of our new monthly series.  

Here at Busy Women's Health we have been trying to come up with a way to share the stories of our followers.  Carly and I finally decided that the simple route was best.  

We have reached out to a few of our friends and gotten their stories directly from them and now we're sharing them with you.  

Of course, since we know the first few ladies, we may just throw in a few "details" of our own.

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…

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 …
