Marc and I took the 90 day challenge and are very happy with our results. I myself am not at my goal weight but I’m closer than I’ve been in a long time. I did a combination of the Shape kit and the fit kit. Marc did the Balance kit. I lost a total of 19lbs and Marc about 10lbs. The best part is the amount of energy we both now have and how it helped us both prioritize physical activity and nutrition for our family. We also participated in a 5k walk as a family and I went on to participate in a 5k obstacle run with my friends. This next challenge my ultimate goal will be to participate in a 10k then eventually a half marathon. We shall see if that’s even possible for my asthmatic non runner self lol. With the help of stroller strides/fit4Mom and my tread climber I’m determined that Visalus can take me there. If you’d like to join me in my challenge click here
So many of you know that I have started training for a half marathon in 1 year. Well during in my training and running my iPhone 5 suffered a drop and Of course that was the day it was not in the OtterBox. Needless to say it suffered a crack on the top right-hand portion of the screen it does not affect the actual workings of the iPhone but it definitely is an ugly crack.
I saw this offer on Groupon for nitro tempered glass which is a different type of screen cover and I thought why not let’s give it a try. I’m amazed it’s like I have a new iPhone it’s tempered glass so there’s no way you can see any sign of the actual drop or the crack my phone looks virtually brand-new. I will definitely continue to buy these from this company and I highly recommend it for anybody who has some unsightly cracks or to even prevent any of those. It’s hammered tested crystal-clear scratch proof and it has superior hardness love love love my nitro glass. Plus it does not change the feel of the screen in fact it feels even better than the original iPhone 5 screen it’s self it’s smooth and I can easily do everything I need to do.

What is oil pulling? In a society riddled with complicated, expensive and even dangerous detoxification methods, oil pulling offers a technique that is refreshingly simple. Oil pulling therapy is a practice taken from Ayurvedic medicine that involves swishing, or pulling, unrefined oil in your mouth for several minutes. The modern adaptation of oil pulling has only recently become popular in Western society, but already many are reporting amazing results from this unorthodox therapy.
With that being said I thought why not? I’m trying it for a month at least, with coconut oil. The reason primarily being my oral hygiene and health have gone to the crapper since two pregnancies, and no regular cleanings have occurred in about 5 years. Eek yeah I know writing and admitting that even hurts. After speaking with my friend Jennifer today I thought hey why not? Read up on it, and if it even does a fraction of what people are claiming, ill be thrilled. So, day one, began this evening yeah I know it said to start in the AM but I figured sooner is better than later. I crunched the hardened coconut oil with my teeth to liquefy it and swished away. It wasn’t as hard as I thought it’d be and after 20minutes I already had things that had been stuck in my teeth for at least 24 hours swish right out. Nice! Plus I do have to admit I brushed with a tiny amount of toothpaste and used a tongue scraper and my teeth feel amazingly clean. Including the spots where I had some errosion on my front teeth. So here’s a pic of Day 1
So the problem I encountered with this experiment was the time commitment. I barely even have time to work out for 20 minutes but to swish for the full 20 minutes was pretty difficult. The days I did manage to fit it in though my mouth did fell exceptionally clean. I also noticed that if I had a cut or anything in my mouth it was healed almost instantly after I swished. I can definitely see the benefits.

AWESOME DEALS FROM VISALUS
Best time to get a jump start on your New Years resolutions! Check out my website
Here are some additional recipes; i always use original almond milk when it calls for milk and for the Peanut Brittle Protein I actually used about 15 ground almonds instead of almond butter. I’m still chugging along some days I’m better at it than others. I alternate my breakfast, lunch, & dinner with Shakes.
They are tasty and filling I just have to remember to have healthy snacks around too
