My Business!

I knew I wanted something more, something that I could potentially grow big...make a team and help others, products that I loved and believed in, and of course a business that's just.... fun!! With tons of support and surrounded with fun people who want the same thing!! I've had my eye on Perfectly Posh for a while!! I really should have just jumped in when I thought about it over a year ago!! But, I was afraid of just jumping in like I had so many times before!! I really wanted to think it out and be smart about it and know for sure that it was what I should do!! I have tried other Direct Selling companies.  I know what to look for when it comes to good companies, and also know now what I truly want. Try 7 times get back up 8 right? That's all you can do. Is try and try and try and then be successful!!

I LOVE Coaching in Fitness and Nutrition. Whether it's in professional ways or not. I love it! It's a definite passion. I also believe that what you put on your skin matters as much as the food that you put in your body. 

So,....finally I have become a Perfectly Posh Independent Consultant!
If you haven't tried these products you need to!! They are so fun, but most importantly so good for your skin and potentially your health!!  Most products are filled with toxins and parabens, soy...etc.  NO Good!! 
POSH on the other hand is made in the USA with quality ingredients like natural butters and oils and FREE from harmful chemicals and fillers! Plain and simple they are quality products that are so good for your skin and feel so good too!! Taking care of your body isn't only about Nutrition and Fitness...it's just as important to relax & pamper your body often too!! You deserve to be pampered!

Taking charge of my life and income! I'm excited to grow a team and help other Moms who want the same thing! My goal is to replace my music income with POSH, fix up our 80's home that needs soooo much updating, of course save up for the kids' college fund, and also help my husband and I save up to go to Australia to visit his brother & family!!
Join me and my team!! I'd LOVE to help you reach goals too!

LOVE all these products!! They work! And I'm a girl...who wouldn't love cute packaging, yummy smelling and amazing feeling products! ;) Some of my current favorites are:


I love scrubbing my feet with the Snarky Bar in the shower!!
My face is very sensitive and acne prone.  What I eat causes my face to break out, I have scars from years of damage to prove it. :( But, I also have to use products that are very natural and good for my skin. I've tried every single product there is to try from Pro-Active and other things you see on infomercials to Mary Kay. The only thing I can use on my face is Posh products or plain Coconut oil!! I love BFF because it exfoliates and I love how my skin feels after a gentle exfoliation! I feel good knowing it's not going to cause me to breakout and it has no harmful ingredients going on my face! Love this!! It's a best seller...many switching from expensive beauty products and loving BFF for their face! All these products are spa grade without the spa price tag!
Love Big Fat Yummy Hand Cremes!! Perfect to carry in your purse and give your hands a little nourishment every where you go!! Smells so yummy too and never greasy!
Love this moisturizer for my face!!! Feels so good...like everything else & never greasy! The pefect moisturizer!

Love this hand cream!! Smells divine...so Summery and yummy!! And of course never greasy!!
This Body Butter is a close out!! Get it fast!! It smells great!! I love love all the Body scrubs and Body butters though!! :) Call me Candy....mmmmm! I put it all over my body after showering! The New Mango Marshmallow is very similar to this...soooo good!

I love all the products...I could go on!! This coming Fall there will be 46 brand new amazing additions to the product line!! Can't wait!

So proud to say I'm a......

New Adventures....POSH Style!!

My Why for looking for something New??
I teach music classes during the school year to kids, but during the Summer months I'm always thinking of ways to earn some extra cash to get us through the Summer. I'm starting to think of ways how I can cut back on classes during the year to have more time to run my kids around to practices after school and spend more time with them. Right now right when they get home from school I'm working until dinner, then it's already bed! My husband does all the running around and I know as my oldest is getting into Middle School and as all my kids are getting older and more busy as the years go on I don't want to miss all this time. I want to have my afternoons free when they get out of school I want to be able to work around my own schedule and make changes week by week if I need to.  
I have enjoyed Music classes, it's very rewarding to see the kids improve and learn and grow.  I have had all 4 of my kids as students as well...it has been so great and a blessing.  I still have been able to be my own boss, but the only time to teach most kids is..... when they get out of school.  
I have tried other home business....because honestly it's what I want!  Call me selfish to not go get a "real" job.  I want as much time at home as possible.  I don't want to worry about calling in sick or trying to get days off to go to my kids' games!! I want to be a Mom...that's the job I want!! But, we also need a little extra income in our fam so I have to do some sort of work!! I think that's why I have tried other home business.  Because I know they can work...but I eventually figured out that certain ones weren't for me.  I've learned to look for what I want and don't want in a home business. I honestly knew I didn't want to teach music/piano classes forever.  Although very very hard to tell people NO....I've had plenty that keep asking me about new students for next year.  But, I'm not taking new students...I am just finishing out my current students and graduating them from the program! 
 I have taught piano lessons since I was 16 so I really feel like it's time to cut back and figure out how to move on!

I love educating and helping with Fitness and Nutrition, I've met amazing people and feel so humbled to hear from them that I have helped them and inspired them through my posts!! I know it's important to put healthy foods in your body...but it's equally important to put healthy products on your skin!! Products that you put on your skin get into your blood stream as well. You don't want to use products that have chemicals and fillers and harmful ingredients!!

Enter Perfectly Posh!!

Vacations...tired feet & New adventures...

We've been on vacation all week at California!! Had a blast! We haven't been on a family vacation in 6 years so we were ready to have a good time.  We hit Disneyland for 2 days, California Adventure for 1 and the Beach!! It was a super fun week braving the lines at Disneyland, dealing with meltdowns from the youngins :) (but a ton of laughs and giggles too), California Traffic, fun riders, first times, crashing waves and so much more!!  On my husbands phone pedometer we walked on average of 10 miles everyday!!! My feet are tired!! I'll tell you how I'm going to treat them in a minute... but first just a couple photos from the week!! :)




Fun Memories!!
And it's always good to be back home too!

I was worried about making my own food and taking it, not able to eat much of anything else.  But, it worked out fine!! I had plenty prepared, it helped that we had a fridge and microwave in the hotel room and we took our lunches and snacks with us every day to the parks and ate at the picnic area.  Saved us a ton of cash too! I will admit that after over 50 days without any type of sugar, dairy, gluten and more..... I had some on the 3rd day of vacation!!! Ahhhhh!!! I'm feeling it today.  But, we were starving in the park at Dinner time one day and we had already eaten our lunches and snacks that we brought and we stopped off at a Disney restaurant for dinner and the only option was fish and chips, chilli cheese fries, chicken nuggets and fries and a measly salad with ....uh lettuce.. & honestly I was starving and didn't care at that moment and definitely did not want another salad!! You know when you are on vacation and somehow everything goes out the window! Well, that was my first taste of ....uh normal american food...lol.. in a loooonnng time.  Chicken nuggets and fries.  It honestly wasn't any better than my healthy home cooked food, but I was starving and it fulfilled that.  That set me off to then want a Dole whip because of course we went to the Tiki Room!! It tasted good too but not like to die for good!! I really haven't missed things like that surprisingly, what I did really want though was chocolate and ice cream.  I could eat turkey sausage and sweet potatoes and asparagus all day long and not care.  But, what I do miss all the time is sweets!! So, I totally then had a candy bar and ice cream!! OH. My!...food coma!! We made it home and I am all headachey and hung over today!! ;) Not good, but I have no guilt! The Doctor might have words to say.... :(

Anyway....aside from my food coma.  Remember how I told you I would be pampering my tired feet!! Ahh ya! Doesn't this look like it would make a nice foot bath and pampering!! Just in time to be foot ready for the Summer months!! See my other Post Here and let me tell you why I need a new adventure and maybe you do too!

Bad Days and Better Days

I have been really struggling lately.  These days I feel like I don't have many good days. There are some really bad days and some ok days.  The road to recovering my Adrenals is really going to be frustrating.  It seems to be getting worse when I was hoping I would start to feel somewhat better being on the supplements to help my Adrenals.  I've been on the anti-inflammatory diet for over a month now.  This is probably the longest I've ever gone without any sort of Sugar, even honey or maple syrup or anything.  Maybe the longest I've gone without Dairy, gluten, eggs, beef or anything. Originally I did feel quite well the first week I got all the junkie foods out of my system as I was use to feeling that before doing Whole30 and starting Paleo.  I knew I could feel better with the types of foods I ate, but then I just started not feeling well even while eating these foods.  I know I would be much worse if I did, but still I was hoping I would at least feel better by now. I guess I'm just impatient...it took years for me to develop this so it may take quite a while to get back to normal.  If there is a normal.  Knowing that my Adrenals are completely not functioning must be the cause.  I feel like they are getting worse and I was wishing we can turn this around soon. It's amazing how the body works and how the whole endocrine system works together and sends signals to each other.  If one thing is off, others may also be.



I remember when I would just want or feel like going for a run or would be excited to workout.  Now a days it's soooo hard to even think about it, I can't even imagine running in the evening or on Saturday mornings like I use to.  Some CrossFit workouts in the morning I really don't know how I get through them.  I force myself to finish and to finish strong and then I am exhausted for the rest of the day.  That's not normal.  20-30 minutes after a tough workout you should bounce back and feel energized for the day.  I feel like getting in my workout helps me though, helps keep me sane, helps me because it's what I love to do even though it's hard right now, but I pay for it the rest of the day. Smart or not?? Probably not a good idea for me to continue intense exercise.  But, at least its not hours worth.  It's not anymore than 30 minutes long and I only am able to do it 4 times a week if that.

I'm basically just rambling...my thoughts are all over the place right now.  This last week has been tough.  I just don't feel good and I can cry at the drop of a hat.  It's just an emotional thing to know something is wrong with you and you may not be able to do the things you want or think you can for a long time.  It's also very frustrating taking care of my family.  I need to do everyday normal Mom and Wife and work things and it literally takes it out of me.  Fixing meals is a whole other issue because I cannot eat what my family eats and it's exhuasting fixing 2 seperate meals and I literally don't want to do it.  I don't want to cook, I don't want to think about it, I don't want to figure out what to make my family.  I barely can figure out what to make myself.  I usually love to cook, but it's just pretty exhuasting.  My family meals are usually pretty healthy, but these days mine are to the extreme and it's pretty boring and the same ol' same ol' almost everyday. So, my poor family! :(
This is what I can eat:
*Turkey, Chicken
*Fruits, Veggies (no tomatoes, corn or white potatoes)
*olives, avacados, coconut oil, olive oil
*raw nuts, except peanuts
*almond milk, coconut milk, coconut butter
*black beans, quinoa, buckwheat (I don't eat these often though because they make me feel slightly worse)
So far I've had the chance to add in eggs and tomatoes.  They made me feel completely sick, sicker than I already feel, made all my symptoms much worse.  My body is rejecting them at this time.  Inflammation sucks!! These foods cause the inflammation in my body and leaky gut worse so it's a no-go for them for a while. Next I get to try Beef.


This is so true!! I honestly don't know what it feels like to feel good! And I know there are so many more out there that also feel this way.  

Some education I am learning about the Adrenal Glands:

What are Adrenal Glands & what do they do?
The two adrenal glands are located on top of each of your kidneys. They are a part of the endocrine system. While small in size, these glands are responsible for numerous hormone-related functions within the body. Healthy adrenal glands keep many bodily functions in check, as result disorders of the adrenal glands can have a broad impact on the body. Suspected adrenal disorders should be addressed by a doctor for evaluation and treatment.
Each gland is responsible for producing hormones.

Adrenal gland disorders develop when:
*the pituitary gland fails to control hormone production
*benign (non-cancerous) tumors grow within the glands
*infections or malignant (cancerous) tumors develop
*genetic mutations are inherited
*Such disorders can be classified as a medical conditions like:
Addison’s disease- This is an auto-immune disease. This is a self-destructive disease, in which your own immune system may attack adrenal tissues.

Symptoms of adrenal gland disorders may include: (I've had all of these symptoms & more for years & now at a stage 7 Adrenal fatigue disorder)
dizziness
excessive fatigue
low blood pressure (hypotension)
sweating
nausea
increased salt cravings
low blood sugar
irregular periods
dark skin patches
muscle and joint pain
weight gain or loss

I deal with these symtpoms every day.  I can't remember a day when I woke up feeling energized.  I keep thinking... shouldn't a person wake up feeling energized, rested, ready to go on with the day.  I haven't felt that way in years.  I just don't know what it would be like to feel that way.

Everyday I step out of bed I am dizzy, feel like my head is swimming, I have blurry vision, when I drive I feel like so weird like my head is in space...if that makes sense.  I played the organ in church today and literally was so afraid that I was going to fall backwards I just didn't think I could hold myself up on the bench. My head feels so heavy most of the time.  A lot of days I also feel like I can't breath like I just can't get air in my lungs. All day long I am trying to regulate my low blood sugar and hopefully keeping it in check.  I feel extremely exhausted all day everyday with headaches and dizziness.  I've had low blood pressure for years.  When you get it checked it's always like "Wow! your blood pressure is low, you must be in really good shape." Well, now I realize that it's a symptom of something wrong.  I had to stay longer in the hospital with my last child because my blood pressure would not rise and stabilize.  That was 4 1/2 years ago. I've also dealt with Hypoglycemia since I was a teenageer.  So, is this the cause of my Adrenals? Or is this a symptom? And how long has this been going on?? Getting worse and worse year by year?? 

The adrenal glands are essential for everyday health. After diagnosis of adrenal disorder, ongoing care is required. Since these glands are related to other organs in the endocrine system, doctors usually scan for diseases of the pancreas, sex organs, thyroid gland, and pituitary gland.


I will be undergoing more blood work and antibody testing this week to check if I have Addison's disease.  I have every symptom of it.  It is when the Adrenals are incapable of producing the hormones it is suppose to so may be the cause of the Adrenal fatique.  I know there is a lot more to it.  If left un-treated it can be fatal.  If I have Addison's disease I know it's just getting worse, so if I have it It's important to know right away before something fatal happens.  Some are left in a coma and other things.  Those with Addison's disease must be medicated for the rest of their life.  Scary! But, I'd rather find out now than later.  If it is that atleast we will know what more to do and I'm hoping I can start feeling much better. Cause, as of right now....not feeling better....so until then...I wait for the next thing.

This is a helpful Podcast by Balanced Bites.  There are 3 parts. Worth checking out if you have any issues regarding your Adrenals.

This is great info on Robb Wolf's page that goes along with the podcast.
