It is flu season and low and behold I got the flu
So, the first thing I did was go to my closest healthy food store and stock up on these items:
The Best Natural Cold Remedies:
100 Billion Probiotic (obsessed, see why here)
1000 mg Vitamin C
Grapefruit Seed Extract (love this stuff, see why here)
NutriBiotic Throat Spray – (this one is a life saver)

My throat was killing me – imagine swallowing food/liquids and it feels like your swallowing your tonsils….ya…..complete miserable. Within 24 hours my throat was way better. These products def cut half the time of this flu!
So, if you are looking for some natural products that will help alleviate cold symptoms I def highly recommend
Also, if you have a humidifer it helps a ton to breathe.
What are your go to remedies?
I have always been so intrigued by our hormones and how our body works. So, I’m going to start a “Hormone Series” to share what hormones are all about.
Haven’t you ever wondered why sometimes during your cycle you have so much energy and feel so great and other parts you find it so hard to even get out of bed? Well, it’s your hormones.
What are hormones?
Hormones are chemical messengers that are made by a gland or cell. They are released to control and regulate the different parts of the body and bodily functions such as growth, development, and reproduction, as well as regulate the body’s metabolism, immune system, and mood.
What are the different types of female hormones?
Well that’s the start of the hormone series, follow up to see more coming soon!

My List of Resolutions for 2015:
Start meditating: I have never practiced meditation before and have read so many positive effects of meditating, to name a few, stress relief and boosts your immune system.
Get even more organized: life can get pretty cray sometimes… But when you are not organized it can be pretty disastrous. So that being said I am going to make a plan to be organized and stay on top of deadlines etc. Towards the end of 2014 my Grandpa passed away and I was blessed with the most beautiful niece anyone could ever have…life got a little hectic and my blog took a backseat. This year 2015 I plan on blogging at least three times a week- Monday, Wednesday, and Friday
Continue or even better my workouts:
In the summer of 2014 I completed Kayla Itsines workout program. It was the best shape I have ever been in and I highly recommend it. I would like to continue with the program but not be so strict with myself… And instead do more outdoor activities such as hikes, paddle boarding etc
Complete certain home projects:
This year will be two years that we moved into our house. I have a few projects that I would like to get done such as developing and framing pictures and putting them throughout the house, update our Window treatments,
Try new things and adventures!
