why i love my new business


so i know that i've been posting a ton about my new business, but it's only because i'm so exited about it and i truly, truly love the products!  i've never been one to get caught up in direct selling.  i'll throw a party every now and then to help support my friends businesses, but when it came down to me actually selling, i was never really interested.  until i heard about it works! global.
i started hearing about these "wrap" things about a year ago, and noticed my friend started selling them.  well of course she got ahold of me and begged me to try the products and to become an independent distributor.  i was hesitant at first and wanted to do some research for myself.  so i did.  i researched and researched.  i looked up the ingredients, and researched those!  i wanted to see for myself what this product was all about.  so then i decided to take the dive and try a wrap.

and 2 hours later this is what i had...


a whopping 2 1/2 inches lost!  what?!? ok so i was still a little skeptical.
and then i woke up the next morning to this...


so i sent my friend a text that morning and told her i was going to throw a wrap party.
so i started doing more research, and looked up some of the supplements and read success stories.  i prayed, i looked up more before and after pictures and started to think that i could possibly do this.  
so right before my wrap party i made the decision to become an independent distributor.
i've been in it a week 1/2 and i've made enough for 3 credit card payments!
and that's just in selling wraps.
people are actually coming to me to buy this product!
it's crazy!  i never though i would be this excited about something, but i've seen the product work, and i've seen the look on people's faces when they hear they lost 3 inches!  it's a great feeling.
i'm excited to see what this business has in store for me in the future!

so today i would like to invite anyone who is motivated and who wants to make a little extra money on the side to join my team.

it's only $99 to sign as a distributor!
join today and change your life! 
trust me you won't regret it :)

our much needed weekend away

the past few weeks have been overly crazy in our household.
we're both so busy at work, and we've had family gatherings and birthdays to attend, so we figured we needed a night with just the two of us.  so we headed over to gatlinburg, tennessee to spend some hubby and wife time.

and of course we had to bring our little munchkin :)

 
we has such a blast.  we rented a cute little condo right above the strip.  it was an easy walk down to all of the shops and restaurants.

our first stop was to the ol' smoky moonshine distillery where we got to try way too much moonshine...



  
it was a fun experience!  the employees are hilarious and really know their alcohol lol!
 
that night we decided to have dinner at our favorite restaurant, the meting pot.



after dinner we found a little pub where we had a few drinks and listened to people sing karaoke.
it was a short but sweet getaway, and even though we didn't do much of anything fancy, i wouldn't have it any other way!

go natural


my husband and i have been trying this whole go natural thing and i'm loving it!
i have more energy, i'm sleeping better, and my face has never been clearer!

going natural isn't easy though, and unfortunately it's a bit pricier than the alternative.  but there are baby steps you can take to help jumpstart your natural way of living.
i've listed a few of them below

throw out all of your sunscreen
yes you heard me right.  throw it away!
i recently heard through the grapevine that sunscreen is not good for you.  so of course i had to do some research, and what i found out was shocking!
according to the environmental working group, 75% of commercial sunscreens contain toxic chemicals that are linked to cancer and hormonal imbalances.
use coconut oil instead!
our bodies need sun, and the sun is the optimal way to absorb vitamin d.  most commercial sunscreens block the uvb rays that are necessary for our bodies to produce their own cancer protective vitamin d.
coconut oil has a natural spf of 4-10 depending on which type you get.
you can also make you own sunscreen by using different oils with spf in them as well.
below is a list of foods and oils with spf.

 
and did you know that the reason you burn is because your body is more than likely lacking some type of nutrient?  it's true!  i can go on and on about this, but i'm pretty sure you get the point.
there are so many foods that you can eat that will help prevent sunburn and help our bodies absorb the correct amount of essential vitamin d.

read your labels
just because something says all natural doesn't mean it is.


some companies label their products all natural which is in fact not true.  the FDA has not yet developed a legal definition for “natural” as it appears on food labels, which leaves companies and marketers to make up their own definitions.
check this out from the wall street journal

http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424053111903374004576580671156407598

pretty scary stuff right?

stay away from artificial ingredients
plain and simple.  when reading the labels look for anything artificial:
artificial sweetners
artificial colors
artificial flavors
think of it this way, would you rather eat an artificial banana or a natural banana?
sounds silly, but if you think of it that way it's so true!  why would you want to put anything artificial into your body?

remember that your skin is the biggest organ on your body
anything that you put on your skin will absorb into your bloodstream within a matter of seconds.
my husband and i have started using coconut oil for just about everything.  i use it for shaving cream, moisturizer, sunscreen (see above) and even mouthwash.

drink water
drink, drink, drink!
the more water you drink, the more hydrated you'll be and it will help flush all of that crap out of your body!  it's important to drink at least half you body weight in ounces of water. 


start with these steps and living and eating natural will start to become easier.  it's become more of a way of life for us rather than just a habit.  since starting this lifestyle (which we try to maintain about 90% of the time) we feel so much better and we no longer crave the bad stuff.
if you have any questions about this just let me know :)
happy wednesday!

do you want to tighten and tone and lose inches in just 45 minutes?

i knew i would get your attention with that :)
so i'm very excited and proud to announce that i am now an it works! global distributor.
this is something i have been praying about, and feel like God was pointing me in this direction.

i've become very passionate about living a healthy lifestyle and want to teach others about it as well.  it's so important to be aware of what you are putting in and on your body.
i heard about these products about a year ago, but never really did any research until recently.
this is an amazing company with even more amazing products.

the most famous is the ultimate body applicator (the body wrap)


in just 45 minutes of wearing the wrap you can tone, tighten, and lose inches!

check out my results:


i've done 2 wraps and the first picture was taken right before my first wrap, and the second was taken right after my 2nd wrap.

here is my front view:


look at the difference!
my skin is tighter and firmer and i've lost a total of 4 inches!!
and the best part of all of their products is they are all natural!
the wrap is all botanical based products.

and men can wrap too!
check out my husbands results:
he's also lost a total of about 4 inches!


 so if you're interested please contact me!  or you can visit my website 

bikini season is right around the corner ladies ;-)
