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!

Guest Blog: How Intermittent Fasting Gave A Former Leader Of A Popular Diet Program Her Life Back

BWH Note: At Busy Women's Health, we are fueled by the stories and successes of our fellow Busy Women. Today, we are thrilled to have a Guest Blogger share her journey of self-love through Intermittent Fasting.  Meet Sheri, an Intermittent Faster since 2015, her name may ring a bell or two if you've read any of my IF stories , as she is the person responsible for introducing myself and countless others to this amazing way of life. Today, Sheri is sharing her unique perspective on Intermittent Fasting as a former member and leader of a popular dieting program. Carly Everywhere I look I see people struggling with weight loss and unsure of what program to follow to lose weight. I see a lot of people convinced that they must count calories/macros/points to lose weight. When I tell them they can let that go and simply count time, they don’t trust me. People are terrified of letting go of calorie counting or points counting or otherwise trust that fat loss with IF is dif

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 , say
