Making an investment in my health!

The news and social media is so full of negative reports of Americans' health. We are overweight, over-stressed, under nourished, sleep deprived and on and on and on. In my small circle, we are making better choices and it is becoming contagious!

I have discovered that we can successfully make healthier life changes by taking little, but determined steps. Here are some tips I have found extremely successful:

1. We need to eat healthier-- find a food journal program that works best for you and discover your food pitfalls then modify your eating habits to bring things under control. I found that I really needed to eat more lean proteins and fiber. This modification of diet made an amazing difference in me being satiated and satisfied as I began to watch my weight loss happen!

2. We need more water-- I love water so that is not my problem. It is remembering to drink it. Find the simplest way to get it in you. I have a large cup that holds 5 cups. I fill it twice a day. If you don't like water's "empty flavor", then add a little flavor, but avoid fake sugary flavors: I like a drop of lemon or peppermint essential oil (there are other essential oils that are detoxing like the lemon...there's grapefruit and orange, etc...). My water intake increased and my skin became more supple, I felt fuller, and I wasn't feeling as sluggish.

3. We need more exercise-- They key is to find an activity you really LOVE to do. So I ride my stationary bike at least 3 times a week and I try to walk 2 miles everyday. If you like it, you are more likely to do it! Be sure to journal your exercise. I look at my exercise calories burned like calorie money in the bank. I try to get about 600 calories burned exercising a day.  Also, exercising brings on an "after burn" that boosts your metabolism to burning calories even after you've stopped exercising. The more active and intense the workout; the bigger the "after burn". As my exercise routine solidified, my energy level improved!

4. We need to acknowledge our pitfalls and weakness-- I discovered through my journaling that I am very vulnerable to snacking in the late evening, even though I had already eaten a very satisfying dinner! To counteract this, I found snacks and munchies that are healthy: mini bags of popcorn (I am into Orville Reddenbacher's lime & salt right now), healthier chocolate, etc...then make sure I have them readily available. I avoid filling my pantry with junk food. I also make sure that I save my calories for the end of the day. So far this has brought me success!

I am getting back on track to losing 2lbs a week at this time. I feel absolutely awesome! I am so aware of my success! I receive compliments daily! I am told I look like I am in my early 30s.....talk about a esteem builder!! 

I am making better choices--for me so I can feel awesome, for my family so I can be what they need me to be, for other so I can be an encouragement. I am making better choices and I love the results!

Sharing the BEST!

When you find a book or movie or restaurant that was absolutely over the top it is easy to eagerly share all about the experience with everyone! Shaklee is a company that is simply "over the top" in every way! Their product line is all natural and really does all it says it will do! The company itself has been in business for over 50 years and has never had a product recall because of the multiple astringent testing procedures they follow at all levels of production. I am proud to be Shaklee distributors are sharing with others the blessings of being a Shaklee product consumer! It is great to be with a company we can believe in and share with others and earn an income as well!

Bioavaliable, Wholefoods, Supplements

I have been a supplement user for quite a few years. Using this, that and the other as new products came on the market and claimed to be the best. Never quite got the results they claimed until I began using Shaklee!
Case in point: during my first pregnancy I took supplements recommended to me at our local natural foods co-op. It was difficult to get them down, but I knew I needed the supplementation during this pre-natal stage. We birthed a healthy boy. I continued with the supplements not getting quite the results I felt I should be getting. Again a bit of disillusion. I do try to prayerfully make good decisions and put this matter before the Lord and then Shaklee came into our lives! I began using their products and taking their supplements. Not long after that we became pregnant again and the experience was easier than the last! And when my husband caught our second son everyone in the room: my sister, the midwife and her assistant, and a supporting friend, commented on his beautiful pink, healthy physique!
The difference? These supplements actually get to where they can be used!
It easy to see the Shaklee Difference!

Get Clean-Green and Mean!!

Get Clean-Green and Mean!!
Non-toxic, powerful clean!
I eliminated toxic chemicals from our home over a decade ago. It made a difference in our health and the atmosphere of our home. I did it because of reports and statistics I had read about the cancer and disease caused by constant exposure to these chemicals. Many people taught "global warming" as another reason, but I never believed in that aspect of the "green movement". I just knew that I wanted to give my family the opportunity to live in a home that was as safe as it could be!
Here again was the struggle to find products that were effective enough to get the dirty work done! It was discouraging but I knew I would need to keep looking. I actually began making many of my own cleaning products to use and was quite pleased with them.
Once Shaklee came into our lives not only did we experience a wonderful cosmetic and skin care line, as well as a whole foods supplement line-we now had a line of cleaning products that was "mean" as well as "green"! And economical! Wow!!! The Basic H2 only takes 1/4 tsp for general cleaning purposes, 2 drops to clean windows, and 1 1/2 tsp for degreasing mixed in just 16 oz of water!!! What a bargain for a powerful, green clean!
