Emerald Face Tissue & Bath Tissue BPA / Tree / Chlorine Free! #shoplet

 

Shoplet is my only go to online store.  I love the variety of products they offer from Janitorial Supplies to Medical Supplies. Their products have great prices, easy accessibility and such a vast amount of options it makes my life so much easier! Recently they added the Emerald products to their product line, and as you can see is totally tree, BPA, and chlorine free. I love green living and knowing I am doing all I can to help my grandchildren have the natural resources we do.

 

Living in South Texas has its advantages especially during winter, usually!! This year has been an exception. We had a whole two days of freezing weather, then back to our 70 – 80 winter time weather. Of course, this did nothing for my already aggravated sinus issues. Fortunately, I found the best product for my allergies, Emerald Tissues! These tissues are a life saver for me, these tissues are made of bagasse, bamboo, eucalyptus and are BPA free, chlorine free, USDA Biopreferred, compostable, and biodegradable.

Emerald Bath Tissue is 2 ply tissue that is extremely gentle and soft. I love how thick it is, and especially knowing I am using green living products! This tissue is especially good to use with a septic tank since it is made with gentle material. We use it with our RV, no stress over damaging our pipes.

I suffer from chronic sinusitis and have to be really careful with products I use. The Emerald’s Face Tissue is by far the best I have found! Not only is it safe for me to use but it is so soft and gentle on my nose. It is so safe to use, I don’t mind using it on my grandson’s little noses.  With my crazy allergies having something made with only natural products is a must. I am so happy to have found this!

FYI all of Emerald Brand products are “Tree-Free, BPA free, Chlorine free, USDA Biopreferred, Compostable, and Biodegradable.

I received these products for review purposes, although this is 100% my own opinion.

2017 is the Year about ME!! #healthy #fitbit #walking

 

 

I started about three months ago walking my 10000 steps a day. This has really changed my life. I have lost 10 pounds and now have set a new goal. Each day I do the steps, I make a conscience decision to not only eat better but drink plenty of water.

I am going to share my list of how and what I did to become healthier and my goal to continue it for this year.

  1. I wake up each morning and thank the Lord! I am always in a better mood after I say my morning prayer. I love spending a few minutes a day on my knees thanking the Lord for allowing me another day.
  2. Get dressed and get moving. I have realized if I don’t get up to an alarm clock and immediately get up and get moving, I tend to start trying to make excuses to not do my morning walk.
  3. Have a group of friends to compete with. I found some of my Facebook friends that also have a Fitbit and we challenge each other to daily showdowns, weekly showdowns and even weekend showdowns.
  4. Drink water. This is one of those I hated at first. Now I love it, I received a yeti cup for my birthday and I keep it full of water. This helps me reach my daily water goal.
  5. Do not eat or drink anything other than water after 6:00. This isn’t that hard, I chose to do this because I found that my husband and I love to snack at night and that was not helping me reach my goal!
  6. Keep moving, I use my fitbit to challenge me to move so many steps each hour. This keeps me active all day long.
  7.  Walk somewhere safe and beautiful. I choose to walk along the beach road because the water is so soothing.

These are the steps I took to help with my healthier me! Although I am not anywhere near where I want to be I am heading in the right direction. Now I have another goal this year and that is to be more involved in the church. I want to be a better Christian. I will be sharing this in a later blog!

 

#FlanaxUSA Long Lasting Pain Relief / Fever Reducer

I love my grand babies and of course to me they are perfect! When we have all three boys together they can get a little rowdy.  I hate to admit I am not as “young” as I would like to thank I am. So when they come running up wanting Mimi to pick them up and spin around, that is exactly what I do! Of course in doing so I pulled a muscle in my lower back, OUCH!! I realized that unless I rest it and find some good medicine. I was so excited to try Flanax pain relievers. I loved that you could take one and be done. I took one this morning and have yet to have any type of pain. What a relief since those grand kids never stop.

As a 45+ mother of 3, I knew the day would come when I wouldn’t be able to have control of my body like I did when I was younger. I had no idea how badly it would affect my everyday activity until it happened. I was going with my husband to an “80’s” themed concert and was so excited. I bought some new jeans to wear and felt great because they fit perfectly. We had really great seats reserved that were close to the front. Once the music started we began to move with the crowd closer to the stage. It wasn’t until we were crammed into the stage that I felt the urge to go to the restroom and there was no way that was even possible since we were crushed like sardines. The more excited I got, the more I began to “leak”. I was miserable by the end of the concert not only was I embarrassed, but my legs were raw from wearing wet jeans. This began my two long years of being very careful of going out into public and knowing my limits or lack thereof. I was so afraid it would happen again, I even elected to miss my 30-year school reunion.

Then my husband accepted a job with a promotion that caused us to relocate during the week to a condo. I knew it was time to take control of my life back and stop hiding behind my problem. I know others continue to have active lifestyles that have this same issue. Therefore, I begin doing research and realized it was just a matter of trying Depend Fit Flex, which by the way offers a free sample for you to try too! Not only do they feel and fit great but it doesn’t even look like you are wearing them. I was so elated and loved being able to go back to my active lifestyle. My husband has seen a change in my mood and is so happy!! You can buy them discreetly through Amazon, which I love! I can order them and have them delivered to my doorstep, the only people that will know are those I tell because you sure can’t tell!

In the evenings my friend and I walk. She lives close enough that we can do it every night. I had her video me walking with my Depend Fit Flex on and as you can see, you can’t even tell!! They not only work amazingly but no one even knows. My friend didn’t even realize until I asked to film!!

Cindy

As an aunt to a beautiful girl with Cystic Fibrosis, I can personally say that staying on the right health awareness track is essential!! With it being Cystic Fibrosis awareness month, Everyone should be aware of this disease. Daily medications, breathers and lung therapy was a daily occurrence for our family. We realized it was inherited from your parents, it involves a defective gene.

Without the daily medications and procedures, not only does the affected CF person’s health decline but their lifespan declines also. It is imperative they follow everything. The CF Champions “Navigating The Journey Together” is a useful guide to making sure you do everything you need! Although I lost my niece to this disease, several years ago, I knew one day there would be better resources for this awful disease. Check out this link to tons of information needed!

This beautiful,unselfish young lady ended up marrying and giving our family two beautiful daughters before she lost her fight. When it is happening to your family you are even more aware of the daily requirements needed daily for a person with CF to live a productive life. I love how readily information is available at Walgreen!

Our family chose to live with CF positively, we knew one day there would be more help and we wanted to have great memories. Now they have more options available and a person with CF can live a relatively normal life. Our Cindy never could enjoy the normal everyday activities other children can today. I am so happy that they have more available for patients and family now. CF devastated our family, but knowing their are others that aren’t suffering as much because of the new information and medication makes my heart smile and I know Cindy is smiling down from Heaven.

Give your Willpower a Boost with Qurb Shot #qurbshot

Sweets are my weakness and I have struggled with weight issues for several years now. My problem….I would always lose motivation shortly after I started a new diet or exercise program. I just did not have the willpower to say no to my sweet tooth. This time of the year is the worst for me because I spend hours upon hours of Holiday baking and then there are the many Holiday parties that we attend each year. I knew if I waited around until the new year to start yet another weight loss resolution, I would already be several pounds heavier so I decided to try to curb my cravings before they hit with Qurb Shot!

Kiss Me Organic Ceremonial Grade Green Tea Matcha Review

20141211_153743

I was recently invited by Kiss Me Organics to review their Organic Ceremonial Green Tea Matcha in exchange of an honest review. Okay in all honesty, I have grabbed a green tea here and there in the convenience stores and I really liked those! But what I received was nothing like the green tea in the bottles I was used to drinking! Instead, I received a cute little tin with a green tea powder inside!

052

Turns out green tea matcha is made from the entire leaf of the tea plant. It has up to 137 times the antioxidants of brewed green tea. Consuming the entire leaf provides your body and mind with the a maximum concentration of Polyphenols and EGCG. Green Tea Matcha can also:

  • Provide you with mild steady energy
  • Provides a metabolism boost
  • Helps improve skin health

050

Kiss Me Organics will also send you a recipe book in which you can also use the green tea matcha in addition to drinking it in hot water. Drinking it in hot water took me a little while to get use to because it is a lot different from the brewed green tea that I was use to. However, I love to use it in my smoothies and cannot even tell it is in there! I usually drink a smoothie on my way to work each morning. I tried one in the evening, but it kept me up a little longer than I wanted so I decided to only have one early in the day!

33ab02d962532ae0135ef84e9a5d9f469d47f011_1

I can really tell a huge difference in my energy level during the day from the green tea matcha. I am resting so much better at night and it seems to just provide me with a sense of calmness. With my hectic lifestyle, this is just what I needed! If you would like to try it for yourself, you can find the Kiss Me Organics Green Tea Matcha on Amazon.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
