It’s Friday?

I have to be honest I’ve sucked at blogging because I started off with a badass cold that turned into a strep throat that turned in to pneumonia that turned into the flu. The past three weeks I have felt like death warmed over. I wake up some days and I can’t even remember what day it is. So please forgive me for not blogging as much as I should.

Today I want to share with you a few things that have really helped me during the past three weeks.

1. My heating pad. I have the TechLove Extra Large heating pad and it has really helped with the soreness and loosens up the funk in my lungs.

2. I keep my URPOWER 2nd Version Essential Oil Diffuser Aroma Essential Oil Cool Mist Humidifier going 24/7. During the day I’ve been using Eucalyptus and at night I’ve been switching back and forth with Frankincense and Lavender essential oils.

3. I haven’t been able to hold down food very well so I’ve been drinking lots of water, veggie broth, coconut water and eating Vega Protein+ Snack Bars.  Chocolate Peanut Butter are my favorite. Right now VitaCost is having BOGO 50% off. ( note to self order more. )

4. Like I said I have been drinking lots of fluids. My go to coconut water is the Thirsty Buddha. It’s so delicious I buy it by the case.

5. As far as veggie broth, I like to make my own but I do keep Imagine Foods organic low sodium vegetable broth on hand. I’ve really enjoyed that the past few weeks. I just warm mine up with ginger, garlic and a little cayenne pepper. Good stuff.

6.  Last but not least, I’ve been using Tea Tree Therapy Chest Rub with Eucalyptus Australiana Lavender Peppermint and Tea Tree Oil. I rub it on my chest before taking a shower. I let the hot water hit my back and it warms up the chest rub and that helps me to breathe better.

This is NOT a sponsored post. I just wanted to share a few of the things that have given me a little comfort over the past three weeks.

  • I’ve been drinking #spirulina and #chlorella by @wizelephant.superfoods for about a month and I love it.... but then the other day I saw @centerkim10 husband Nate drinks @lovesuja wellness shots and I have to tell you the combo has changed my life. 
I no longer need coffee or matcha before my workouts. I mix the spirulina, chlorella with a cup of filtered water add the immunity stir like hell then chug it down. No it doesn’t taste great but your body will love it. Then I shake and take the suja organic digestion shot and I’m ready to kill it at the gym. No more pre-workout coffee or matcha 😍 
Thank you, Kim and Nate for being such great inspirations and total badasses. I love y’all ✌️❤️🙏

  • May is not only my birthday month it’s also Celiac awareness month. 
Almost seven years ago I was diagnosed with Celiac and it completely changed my life for the better. I went almost 8 years misdiagnosed. They thought I had IBS, Crohn’s disease, Fibromyalgia, and one Dr thought it was all in my head.

Every time I saw a Dr they prescribed me antibiotics and antidepressants. Nothing helped. In fact it just made things worse. I hurt from head to toe, I had horrible tummy troubles, my hair was falling out in clumps and I was sick with a cold year around.

Finally in the Summer of 2012 I went to a new Dr because my Dr was on vacation. Turned out the flu saved my life. 
Dr walked in, asked me a dozen questions and then he looked at me and said ” how long have you had Celiac?” I had NO clue what Celiac was so I just sat there looking at him like he was crazy.

He ordered lab work and a emergency colonoscopy. He sent me straight over the ER. They admitted me and the next day they did the colonoscopy. 
That afternoon the Dr told me I had Celiac. My white blood count was so high he decided I needed to stay in the hospital a few days.

Google became my best friend and by the time I left the hospital I felt empowered. If you have any of these symptoms please get tested. 💚
Here are some Celiac symptoms :
abdominal bloating pain
chronic diarrhea
vomiting
constipation
pale, foul-smelling, or fatty stool
weight loss
weight gain
fatigue
insomnia
Muscle Pain and Tenderness
irritability and behavioral issues
dental enamel defects of the permanent teeth
Joint pain
Hypertension
delayed growth and puberty
short stature
failure to thrive
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD

  • My 75 year old mother said she's become a "spudoholic" lol. Thanks to @potato.wisdom 
She made a huge salad for lunch with a Spring salad mix, potato cakes, fried onions and jalapeño, black beans, almonds and Follow Your Heart ranch dressing. @followyourheart 
She makes the best potato cakes in the air fryer. Leftover mash potatoes with nutritional yeast, green onions, red pepper flakes, and garlic. So delish

  • My life changed when I started to become thankful for ever heartbreak I’ve had in my life. Without heartbreak I would not  truly be able to appreciate how many blessings I have in my life. .
