“Let no one rule your mind. Take special care that your thoughts remain unrestrained. Give society your ear, but not your heart. Show respect for those in power, but do not follow them blindly. Judge with logic and reason, but comment not. Consider none your superior, whatever their degree in life. Treat all fairly, or some will seek revenge. Be careful with your money. Hold fast to your beliefs, and others will listen.”

It is important for me to be environmentally conscious. I enjoy a morning cup of coffee, an evening cup of tea, winter days, spring nights, bury myself in a gratifying book during thunderstorms, poetic expression, purposeful relationship with God, laughter, observant, independent, opinionated, challenging debates, and times of extraordinary emotional and memorable bliss in my life.
I run about 3 days a week. I also enter 3 or more 5K runs a year. Thermacare knee wrap is perfect for my knee recovery from 5K marathons. Also, sometimes I overdue more than my knee can candle on my weekly runs, and I prefer to use the wrap over oral over-the-counter pain medicine because it works immediately to relieve my muscle pain or soreness and is overall more effective in the long run because I don't have to take any medication, which was what I previously did, until the thermacare wraps! Inexpensive, love them, and would definitely recommend as I already have!
I love almost every flavor of Talenti gelato, but this is my number 2 in comparison to sea salt caramel flavor. Other than that, it is the best tasting and best priced gelato that I can find at my local grocer. It has a smooth and creamy texture with just a hint of ice making gelato my favorite over any other frozen treat!
Hum Nutrition Wing Man(TM) 60 Capsules I bought these supplements from Sephora at a reasonable price and take daily as directed. I have noticed a dramatic improvement under my eyes, the only place I have dark circles so far. I also am always concerned about keeping a healthy liver due to the fact I have no gallbladder, which can put a strain on my digestive tract and liver. Great product and has even aided with a little of my digestive issues! Get these!!! Worth it for a healthier and fit you!!!
Hum Nutrition Flatter Me(TM) 60 Vegetarian Capsules These are the best vegan digestive enzymes on the market! I bought them from Sephora. They are a little expensive for the small quantity, considering they need to be taken twice a day, but other than price, great product for those who have digestive issues due to dietary restrictions, or in my case, having no gallbladder. I felt overall better, easier to stay hydrated, and it helps with bloating I didn't even realize I had until I began taking these. I would recommend, regardless of my price disappointment!
NOW Foods Super Enzymes, 180 Capsules (Pack of 2) After much research, it was decided that after having bowl problems due to the removal of my gallbladder, to seek out a digestive supplement with ox bile as an ingredient. I bought these from Amazon hoping to aid my digestive tract back in the right direction. I took these with my 3 main meals a day as recommended, and they worked great for about a month. I began to have my normal digestive issues again without changing my diet, exercise, or supplement regimen. I found a supplement with pure ox bile as the only ingredient, which has done wonders for my digestive health over the past 6 months. Product did not meet my long-term expectations.
NOW Foods Probiotic-10 25 Billion I have had digestive issues since my gallbladder was removed a few years ago. I have tried about 10 different brands with different strains and amounts of bacteria, and this has been the best! It is inexpensive, and not only is my digestive system in great condition, my overall sense of well-being and energy has increased in a positive direction!!!
Nike Women's Free 5.0 Tr Fit 5 Brthe Lv Glw/White/Brght Crmsn/Brght Training Shoe 7 Women US I bought these size 9 in orange/bright in 2013 and love them! I run at least 3 times a week for the past 10 years. They have not faded when washed and kept their fit. They are the perfect shoe to run indoors, on gravel, and have been through six 5K marathons. There has been a little wear on the sole treads, but are still going strong and have not faded or unsewn at all. Love these and hopefully will be upgrading these shoes soon to have an extra pair!
FlipBelt Running & Workout Belt I bought the FitSala running and workout belt from Amazon because the price was not expensive and there were great reviews. I used it about 3 times a week on my runs to carry my small personal items such as keys and iPhone. The belt kept slipping off when I ran, even though it felt perfectly snug before my run with my personal items inside. I am returning and would not recommend the FitSala belt.
Nutricology Ox Bile, 100 CT I had my gallbladder removed several years ago. I did much research and purchased this product on Amazon because my digestive tract was off balance leaving me with 4 urgent trips to the restroom daily throughout the day. My eating habits consist of gluten-free, dairy-free, and low carb. My body was not producing enough bile due to my lack of gallbladder which was putting stress on my intestines and liver causing serious bowel problems. I take this 3 times a day with my main meals and my digestive issues have disappeared completely. I have one normal stool a day now, my stomach is not constantly bloated, and I feel all around much better because my digestive system is back on track. I'm no longer fatigued or constantly trying to stay hydrated. LOVE this and will continue to purchase forever!
Simply Fit Board® Core & Buns DVD I own the simply fit board, mat, and DVD set. It's a great workout when you use the fit board in conjunction with the DVD. I really feel the burn throughout my core, arms, and legs. This was the best Christmas present from my husband. I love it and use it almost everyday and can see great results!
