    Why I Started Using Plexus Products

    I have ALWAYS had an abundance of energy. My friends have referred to me as the energize bunny on several occasions. When I was pregnant with my two littles I got a natural ‘high’ off of scrubbing floors on my hands and knees … yeah, I was that crazy, energetic lady. So, when my energy dropped drastically after a small bout of depression I was at a loss. I had no idea why I needed a nap every . single . day to make it to the evening. I was so confused. My poor body and the chemicals in them were so out of whack due to my depression. Thankfully I…

    Anxiety is …

    Awful .. evil .. hard .. overwhelming .. not needed .. ridiculous .. All of these adjectives are words I’ve used to describe what anxiety is to me. I don’t like to use the word ‘hate’, but y’all I’m making an exception. I HATE that I have anxiety now. The Friday before we left on vacation this past month was the worst day I’ve had since February. The week leading up to Friday wasn’t much fun either. I had several anxiety headaches and a couple of panic attacks. Friday, though it all came crashing down on me, and I’m not sure if it was my depression that reared it’s ugly…

    I Never Thought It Would Happen To Me …

    The last ten months of my life have been a struggle I never thought I’d have to go through. I’m finally sharing my story of anxiety and depression to let others know they are NOT alone. It is OKAY to not be okay. It is OKAY to seek help. My mantra right now is, “Every situation is not a crisis” …. because if I let my self think that my entire body shuts down and anxiety takes over. My face goes numb, it starts to twitch uncontrollably, I feel like I can’t swallow, and I have a hard time catching my breath. It is an awful thing to experience. Anyone…

    The Hate U Give

    I used to read at least a book a week before we had kids. Now I’m lucky if I get 5 in a year. With any free time I get I always feel like there are so many other things I should be doing, and by the time I even think of reading I’m too tired. BUT that’s all changing. I’m making time because I truly enjoy reading, and I’m trying to so something I love at least 15 minutes a day. Its good for you as a person to do something you love….. It’s truly amazing how authors can take you on this journey that allows you to totally…

    Diary of a Lonely Prom Queen Review

    One of my friends from my mom group recently published her own book…. I mean how cool is that?! The author, Tabitha, or Tab as I call her, is a sweet person with a big heart. Unbeknownst to many people, myself included, we did not know that she struggled so much during her high school years. She has always been an anxious person, and her adolescent years weren’t the best for her. People who knew her in high school had no clue what she was experiencing on the inside. Her book, Diary of a Lonely Prom Queen: Reflections on Parenting Teenage Girls from a Teenage Survivor, is from her perspective…

    Love Your Body

    This past week I had a girls night out. I honestly couldn’t decide on what to wear … first world problems I know! But you see, I’ve been struggling with my body lately. I’ve noticed it doesn’t look the same as it did 6 months ago. My arms were thinner and my stomach was flatter. But at that time I had been consistently working out every day and eating like zero sugar! Lol I have backed off of working out for personal reasons (BUT am starting it back up ever so slowly! I’m also starting to watch my sugar intake again.) I’ve recently started taking an anti anxiety / depression…
