Sprains, Strains and Boy Mom Life



The full effects of boy mom life.  Back to school functions are a prime time for shenanigans.  Especially when you haven’t seen your friends for a bit.  And, well, someone is always going to get injured. It just seems to be inevitable.  We were the lucky recipients this time around.   It’s just the luck of the draw, as they say.  

So here we are on the couch, foot elevated, wrapped and iced.  Typical treatment.  What isn’t typical, although in my opinion should be, is that under that wrap, I gently rubbed Young Living’s Copaiba Essential Oil over the bruising and inflammation.

Copaiba is amazing as a helpful aid in inflammation reduction and to help ward off stiffness.  


Both major problems with a strained/sprained ankle. 

In our experience, since it’s not too major a strain, the wrap will be off tomorrow and he’ll be back on the karate mat within 48 hours.  

Copaiba is definitely a must for the first aid kit, and it’s a starter kit oil.  So you’re guaranteed to get it if you have a kit. 

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.

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 …
