Yes, I use Essential Oils!





Yes, I use Essential Oils.
Yes, you did read that right!

I purchased a kit 
& have been playing around with lots of recipes.

Bath salts.
Muscle rubs.
Different diffuser blends.

I am loving all things 'OILY'

For real.

I know crazy. Huh?

I am diffusing at night!
I notice on the mornings when I've skipped
turning on the diffuser...
that I am stuffed up!
My allergies seem to benefit
from diffusing.

For real.

Personal goals for 2017

I am a work in progress.

This is always more
evident at the beginning of a New Year!

When I think of how I lived my previous year---
Thankfully, each day is a NEW day.
Each day is a chance to begin again. A fresh start!
Yes. How awesome is that?
We do NOT to keep it status quo.

So, with that being said, these are qualities and
things in my personal life that I would like to work on!


1. Live life happily. Full of joy.

2. Embrace adventures as they come.

3. Be content. Be happy.

4. Show love to my immediate family. My husband and my daughters and their families.
By offering my time. my attention. my affection and listening
and talking WITH them and not AT them.
Always, always being available.

5. Show more love to my extended family by offering more of my time to them. Calling/texting my Mama more often. :)

Grow more in the Word. By daily opening the bible and letting God speak to me.

Show more compassion to those around me in need. Smile at others and be kind.

Be a nicer friend.

Journal more and concentrate a bit more on my writing.

Read more. TV less and books more!

Let go of disappointments and rejoice in the accomplishments
no matter how small and minute.

Like I said, I am a work in progress!!!
Some of these goals will be easier than others
but, each and every day is a new day and a new chance
to work at these goals!!

How about you?
Do you have any goals? Physical or personal?
I’d love to hear about them!

2017 Fitness Goals

Happy 2017!
I can hardly believe we are already into our second day of 2017.
Time just keeps on plugging away.
It really does not stand still.
Time marches on and doesn't care if you have things
you wanted to do or places you wanted to see.
It doesn't wait, it keeps going.
All we can do is savor every single moment of every single day
making the best of the time.

I have written down goals for 2017.
Some are for personal growth which I will share
in a separate post.
Things I want to work on personally but, for this post
it is all about my fitness goals.

I want to stay healthy and fit in order to enjoy all those moments
that life has in store!!
One way I plan to do this, is to strive to keep fitness goals.

I find if I write down my goals they seem real.
Cemented in print for me to see and to keep me accountable.



So, here they are in print including mine from the last two years:
