21 Day Fix

Today is my Day 1 on 21 Day Fix. The fact that it is Labor Day is interesting but I will make it work! We have planned for dinner grilled chicken and corn so I am not too worried. The challenge for this whole thing will be wine. I love wine - Lee and I have a few glasses a night. I may try to use less yellow containers on days I plan to have wine (so.. like everyday?!)

I have a bullet journal so I incorporated tracking into it so I didn't have to carry around a sheet of paper. It's a little messy since I was struggling with the squares but it works!

Swim suit season is ending but leggings/skinny jeans and boots season is here and I think that is just as important!

Healthy Life, Happy Wife

I am once of "those" people now.

"Essential Oils" people.

I love it. I love that I can look for concoctions that make us feel happier, healthier, less anxious, less sick, etc.

I have a diffuser in both kids rooms and one in the playroom to promote healthy sleep and happy attitudes. I recently added one in the car for the drive to school to help us all get off on the right foot.

I recently have been running a combo in Ellie's diffuser for her cough that she has had the entire month of August. Currently it's Thieves, Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, and Lavender. I run this alongside her humidifier and my homemade "vicks" on her feet and chest.

I mostly use Young Living brand of oils. They are a top notch brand and I know I can trust them. I also supplement with the NOW brand - which you can find at HEB and Whole Foods.

I counted up my stash the other day and I have about 35 different oils... yes I am obsessed.

I often seek out recipes on Pinterest. You can follow my board here: Oily

Tomorrow I am starting the 21 Day Fix from Beachbody. I am looking forward to an easy way to eat healthy and I have been accessing the site for working out and love how easy these 30 minute workouts are.

I am a coach if you want to join me. I am still new to it but I love to have others to bounce ideas and inspiration off of. Team Beachbody

I plan to keep myself accountable on this site for the 21 Day Fix challenge and I hope to see commenters doing the same!
