Day 1: Fruit and Soup

Day 1: Fruit and Soup

Day 1 was awesome, you guys! I had loads of energy, and I felt great. I wasn’t really hungry (more than normal) and I felt positive about continuing with the plan. Here are my beginning stats: Arms: 12 inches each Bust: 39 inches Chest: 33 inches Waist: 34.5 inches Hips: 41 inches Midway: 47.5 inches (around the largest area around my butt) Thighs/Legs: 26 inches each Today is Fruit and Soup day, so I was able to eat as much fruit (except bananas) and as much soup as I wanted. I really enjoy the flavor of the soup, so I do not mind eating it at all. I ate watermelon and almost 1 entire cantaloupe, and 2 oranges. It was encouraged to eat watermelon and cantaloupe (I am assuming because of the water content). The fruit helped to curb my sweet tooth and the...

A New Me

I’ve been standing in my kitchen prepping a soup for a ten day diet that I am about to start, and I thought I would document my daily progress for all of you to see. Losing weight is SUPER frustrating. It can be discouraging. But, I want it to be inspiring and FUN! A few years ago, I used Young Living Supplements, exercise, and a clean eating plan to lose weight. It worked. Then I got lazy and I gained my weight back AND SOME. So, here we are. I start *fo real* tomorrow. Tonight, I will eat soup and pretend it is day Day 1. I guess technically I will have 1.5 days on the 1st day, just so you know how I am starting. Oh, and I am in a competition with my husband about who can lose the most in 10 days. It’s on like Donkey Kong. 🙂 If you are curious about...

Prime Day

My, my my… It’s Amazon Prime Day!! Ok, I have to admit I didn’t even know they *had* an Amazon Prime Day, but this is pretty cool, you guys. This is a great time to stock up on stuff you know you are going to need for the upcoming school year. One thing that you may need is a tablet for your kiddos. This Fire Kids Edition is well loved in our home. It comes pre loaded with FreeTime, which is AWESOME!!! If you are not familiar with FreeTime this will give you a better idea about what it is:  Built for kids In FreeTime, the background color changes to blue, letting parents know at a glance that their child is safe. Kids only see titles that have been selected for them. Younger kids can search before they know how to type by using Characters...

Recently, Young Living held their Grand Convention in Utah. Part of the festivities included visiting the farm in Mona. I was able to experience this beautiful place back in October.

Exciting Things are Happening!

Exciting Things are Happening!

It’s convention week! EEEEKKKKK! I’m just a little bit excited, can you tell? This is the long awaited week every year where brand new products are unveiled. I CANNOT wait to see what is rolled out this week. I will make sure to post updates and exciting news as I get that information. You can keep up with live updates here on my Joyful Life page. Not only will there be new product announcements, but those that attend will get to tour the farms. I had this experience personally last fall, and it was something I will never forget.  The majesty of the mountains and the serenity of the farm is not easy to describe, and pictures do not do it justice.   I am so happy for my teammates that will get to experience the thrill of being in Utah this week. It is...
