Advocare and BPD

Standard

As I’ve stated, I was recently “diagnosed” with Bipolar Disorder. I hate the term “diagnosed” because it makes me think of an illness that was caught. I didn’t catch bpd, it’s just me. It’s who I am. In my research I have learned that the people coping with it the best have changed every aspect of their lives. They eat healthier and exercise more. That seems simple enough right? Wrong. Most days it’s a struggle to get out of bed. My meds make me feel like I’m starving to death. Drinking water has been revolting. I’m struggling. Every day is a battle.

After seeing a recent photo of me standing next to my husband, I am disgusted. I’ve gained 50+lbs in the 3 years we’ve been together. It’s time for a change. My sister-in-law is a advocare distributor and suggested the 24 day challenge along with some apatite control and metabolism booster. After drinking the meal replacement shake today, I am in love!! I feel full for the first time in 2 months  (and no, I am not pregnant) and I have more energy! This is amazing! I feel like I might complete some project today and not because I’m manic! 

Panaway Bath Salts

Standard

I love essential oils! My favorite use for them has been bath salts and shower melts. I recently stumbled upon Young Living’s Panaway EO and OH MY LANTA my life has changed. Muscles sore and achey? Panaway bath. The winter cold getting to your joints? Panaway. I’ve found mixing 5 drops of panaway and 3 drops of Copaiba to 1 cup of Epsom Salts to be my favorite recipe. I spoon 1-2 spoonfuls into my bath water and allow to dissolve for a few minutes before getting in.

First blog post

Standard

I craft. A LOT. I was just recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder and have had one heck of a time coping with it. But now I understand why I will start a thousand craft project and why only half of them get finished. Crafting allows me to see progress; I start with nothing and usually by the end of the day, I have something (when I can finish a project!). I’m also a budding essential oil enthusiast. I love making bath salts! Panaway bath salts are my absolute favorite!! My blog posts will probably be about my latest craft project (you should see my bunny army) or some new essential oil recipe. Or leggings! Who doesn’t love leggings?!
