BMI is short for body mass index. It is a measure of body fat based on your weight in relation to your height. Knowing what your weight is and what it actually should be for your height and build is good information to know. It will help you in monitoring and helping to ward of cancer, heart deisese, diabetes, and many other hosts of health problems that can arise by to much weight. Most say I want to loose weight or I need to gain weight but do not know a healthy target to shoot for. The body mass index is your guide to tell you just that.
Recently I was given a Blue Tooth Easy Home body fat scale. It is supposed to measure body weight, body fat, body water, muscle mass, BMI, BMR, bone mass and visceral fat. I received it free to review. Here are my bullet points on the product.
In summary I think the scale is still a great scale even with the app issues. It will do the job you need it to do. And if a scale could be handsome.... this one is in looks.

As the new year is approaching I have been thinking deeply. Reflecting on this past years goals and what will be the new years goals. One that I had for 2016 was to get in shape. I am not where I want to be. I will say that this year I did more than the prior year towards that goal through out the year, so with that said I will keep moving forward at what ever pace I can but at least it is going forward! I was asked recently to discover CycleBar in Raleigh. I thought the timing could not of been more perfect. I was wanting to try something new towards my health and wellness goal. And you know I love adventure.
Let's face it if you are not as active as you should be, going to a gym can be a little intimidating. This year I had been exercising at home. So most of my anxiety left when I walked into the door and saw the fun party like atmosphere. Instead of a feeling of I know I should do this yet feel dread I felt pumped! Really!
The staff was top noch amazing, helpful, bright and cheery. Which helped to take away the first anxiety I had about my new adventure. Now don't get me wrong I was excited too, just you know what I mean!
Now the first stop is the sign in wall. You sign in on the tablets. Next you pick out your shoe size. On the bottom of these shoes are clamps that lock into the bikes pedal to keep your feet on track and secure. You do not have to use these but I enjoyed using them to be more secure.
Next stop was the refreshment bar. They make sure before you go into the bike room you are hooked up with plenty of H2O. I was asked by this gentleman if I like my water room temperature or chilled. The Cyclebar water bottle are yours to keep or you can give it back.
The bike room is awesome. It is so many things to so many people. It can be a battleground to beat the spirit of laziness. It can be a sanctuary to retreat from stress. The staff helps you get the bike adjusted to your level of comfort before the session begins.
Your individual bike is equipped with everything you will need. From monitor, towel, water, weight bar it is all here. I was on the front row. See the large fan in the front of the class? It was funny, the instructor after pumping us a bit to get us going said you had to work for the fan! Great way to look at it and boy I wanted the fan. The music was motivating to get you going no matter what mood you may be in as you enter the room. The instructors say they are part educator, DJ, drill sargent, and motivator. Was it true? Yes! They are every bit of all that. I know without the instructors motivation I couldn't of done it on my own.
After your ride they have the refreshment bar with complementary drinks and fruit to recharge you. I forgot the mention they have lockers for your things, a shower, towels & shower gel all FREE for you to use and be heading on to your day. It is fantastic they thought of everything to make your ride as enjoyable and comfortable as possible.
This is the Cyclebar community wall, which I think is a great idea. It is the gathering of all to know.
Now one thing I did not mention yet, the instructors claim, is to come along side you and be a friend not just staff. This was my instructor Whitey. Her attitude is so contagious! She shared her story of why she is into the "ride". Her story mirrored mine in some ways. She found out she had heart problems and decided to take matters into her own hands to not allow the heart problem so to speak be a problem! Way to go Whitney and it is the exact motivation I need because I too have some minor heart issues. I want to be victorious over my health as Whitney has done. She also wanted to wake up everyday and be happy at what she does and she has accomplished that hands down. She loves sharing empowerment with others to lift you up and tell you, you can do this! I am excited to hear more of the stories of others encouragement and be a part of becoming a more empowered, healthier me on this journey.
They spoil you at Cyclebar. All the business swag you see is free as well. They really hook you up.
Any gear you may need on your fitness journey they offer for sale as well. In a non to shoppy way, the items are displayed gingerly around the lobby for your browsing enjoyment.
As I begin this journey at Cyclebar I look forward to it. I look forward to meeting new people. I look forward to a fitter me. I look forward to being more empowered over my health as 2017 approaches. What better way to start off a new year and end the old. This year has been a stressful year for me and it is time I set aside time for me and to have some self care. I think Cyclebar is the place to really do that.
I was provided a complementary membership to Cyclebar in exchange for my honest thoughts and opinions.

Productivity. Time management. Balance. Have you ever struggled with these things? Peace in a busy life? I know I have. The struggle is real. I want to share with you a journey I am on right now and for those struggling as well I invite you to join me.
I at times for various reasons need to tweek my evenings and mornings. How I spend my evening can in fact affect the start of my next day. How I start my mornings can indeed affect the rest of my day. I have a lot going on these days to do and keep up with. I highly admire Crystal at MoneySavingMom and when I saw she has a course to help fine tune my evening I was super excited to hear what she had to say.
I am first doing the 14 day Make Over Your Evenings course because before you have a morning you must have a night right! So far I am on day 5 and simply loving it so far. No matter where you are as a stay at home mom or a working woman her tips are valuable. It will help you completely tweek & repair an off balance evening and morning. The steps I have taken so far via the course have already greatly improved my evenings I am so excited to see the rest of the fruit as I learn and apply this course information.
Rather than me give you tips myself when I myself have a broken system, I think as a blogger part of our job is when you do not know all the answers you find those who do know. Well Crystal has this down pat.
Her call to actions are practical. Not so far fetched that no one but a imaginary super mom could attain it. Everyone can achieve these practical course challenges. These courses are so flexible. You can log in and download the work book to your tablet or print the workbooks. If your really in a hurry just watching her short informational videos will really open your eyes. I like doing the workbook and watching the videos together.
Healthy time management does not have to be scary or a thing that we only dream of. Breaking old habits and making new healthier ones are attainable. What I am liking best about this course is she breaks down the steps in to bite size daily 15 minute chunks. It is not to much information to do all at once. Matter of fact I have actually taken two days for some of the new habit projects to really stew over it and get it. The course you work at your own pace. You want change to be more productive in a good way not an over worked stressed way. You don't want just great information you learn then never act upon it saying to your self I know I should I know I should but don't! If you really do it and act on the daily small activities you can master a more productive, organized life. You can achieve better time management. Really how you end your day and how you start it will affect the in between. So join me on this journey! Let me know how your doing with your evenings & mornings below.
I thought it would be fun to explore the benefits that ordinary houseplants hold for us humans. God created them all for a reason. I am super excited to share some of my findings with you today. Personally I love their bright presence in my home. Houseplants are just awesome.

We are a busy family let me tell you! I have a teen that I have to mom taxi every day to something. I have business appointments, doctor appointments you name it. We volunteer. I have a son living at home in college, and working his first internship. The list is never ending of all we have to do in week. We simply do not have a lot of time in the morning to cook a nutritious breakfast. But breakfast is so very important to fuel our day we simply can not ignore it. It is in fact the most important meal of the day after going all night with no food. Those days we did ignore breakfast, we paid the price later in the day. Sometimes we even would just grab donuts! I know, I know that's not good at all. So I ended up loving the idea of easy fast smoothies as the problem solver for us! I want to share with you one of my fast go to smoothies I like to do for hurried mornings. I love shopping at my Raleigh N.C. Kroger for my go to items. So I always stop in about every week for fresh veggies,fruits & Carnation Breakfast Essentials®.
I totally believe in prep work on your down time. When you prep ahead of time it can save you precious moments when you simply do not have it to spare. So I like to chop my fruits & veggies before hand, when I can.
Here is what you will need to make my busy morning smoothies for you and your family.
This is so yummy and easy as I watch my calories. With this breakfast if you add yogurt your total is only at 356.50 without it is even less. This week I opted out of yogurt but that changes from week to week.
I also want to share another tip to make your morning even faster. On your down time during the week, prep your fruits & veggies and freeze it in a jar or other container. You can freeze it alone or also go ahead and add milk too. If you add the milk, just be sure to pull it from the freezer the night before and sit it in the refrigerator to thaw out so you can just dump the contents into the blender with your Carnation Breakfast Essentials®!
So on your next busy morning just grab your prepared jar and add with the complete nutritional drink powder packet in your blender. My favorite flavor is the chocolate. Oh my! It is so good in the smoothie. I am telling ya having these jars prepared ahead of time saves so much chopping time in the A.M.! It's beautiful.
I want to point out if you do not want to use the power packets or run out you can also use the Carnation Breakfast Essentials® Ready-to-Drink Bottles in place of milk & the packets. Or some days if I skip my smoothie (not often) I just grab one of these little babies and I am off to the races all by itself. So do my kids. It is pure nutrition in a bottle ready for us! I just have a few chilling in the refrigerator at all times.
Recently, to have added motivation, I took the 7 day Carnation Breakfast Challenge. It has been so much fun doing the challenge each day,to motivate me on my journey. Not to mention each time you do a challenge you get entered in a sweepstakes to win cool prizes! It only takes a few minutes. The games are my favorite part of the challenges. Since starting this new morning breakfast routine I have now had enough motivation and time while the kids get ready to do a fast 250 jumping jacks (I am working my way up to more). I am so proud of myself! Now I am so pleased knowing me and my kids are getting 2x's the vitamin D than that of a plain glass of milk, 13 grams of protein and 21 vitamins & minerals without having to take a vitamin pill even. Not to mention the fabulous nutritional value of adding fresh fruits and veggies to the mix. You just can't go wrong using Carnation Breakfast Essentials® in a smoothie in the morning! I no longer have mom guilt for not having time to cook a full breakfast in the morning. We feel great starting our day healthier while saving time. It truly is a win win. Ok now I gotta go grab my smoothie and get out the door! Be sure to look below for how to join the challenge.
Ready to get started?
Follow these easy steps:
2. Complete a simple yet fun breakfast mission for a chance to win. New prizes will be revealed every day!
3. Come back any day in February to complete missions and see new prizes. The prizes range from a Fitbit to a GoPro and other awesome stuff!
4. Head to your favorite store to purchase a Carnation Breakfast Essentials® Nutritional Product and upload your receipt for five extra entries per day.
So are you eating a nutritious meal in the morning? What are you doing to get a good start to your busy day?
I just love that quote you see on the wall above. Thomas Edison was such a visionary and I admire him so. Today things are certainly heading in the direction with more people in that manner, that Mr.s Edison predicted. I am guessing I am one of those heading that way!
I am starting a new journey series I will be sharing at times here in my blog. I want to share my journey here locally in Raleigh North Carolina as I learn more about alternative health means. I started sharing some of my health journey here at my blog a bit ago. I shared my story that I am BRCA 2 Positive. I have to be very proactive against cancer as we all should really. So in being proactive against cancer & other health issues it has led me down the path of discovering other ways to take care of myself. But I have only just begun. I am like a sponge for knowledge right now. There is so much out there to learn on the topic. It has led me to Ideal Life Style Advocates to help me some with doing just that. I have met so far with Dr. Mark Niemchak. The first meeting was to answer in depth health questions. Some to be honest I thought was very funny but he assured me that it all plays a part in the bigger picture of my health. The second trip was to do some light testing to pin point some things. The next meeting Dr. Niemchak will be sharing with me a plan he developed just for me.
At Ideal Life Style Advocates they bring 32 years of clinical experience in life style medicine. They look at the whole picture not just one thing concerning you. They truly believe there is more to personal care than prescribed traditional medicines and doctor reports. They come along side your situation and take a more holistic approach to everything not just one issue you may be having. It may be something else causing that one thing! In a world where you feel like just another number at most doctor offices, Dr. Niemchak took the time to truly listen to me so far. He seemed very warm & genuine. He was very encouraging & knowledgeable in his fields. His office manager Judi is just the ray of sunshine any office needs! It was nice to finally talk with someone about my health that seemed to actually care for my own interests, rather than push more drugs on me & radioactive testing as I was to do every six months,that may not even be necessary. I have had issues with doctors in western medicine not really listening to how I feel about my own body and seem to be looking out for Big Brother Pharma or their own pockets. I am not their guinea pig and another number to give them more cash flow. I saw how their ways did not help my mother who died. She died an awful death of Ovarian Cancer and I will tell you I think the regular way did not fully help her situation. There is other ways and I want to take the time to learn and equip myself with as much knowledge as I can so I can be proactive to make better choices for myself. When my mom died I did not know there was any other ways of helping your health situations, I used to believe everything doctors say to do. I want to do what is right for me and not be stuck in a cookie cutter system that has failed to many times. I am not saying that it always fails just in my case I have seen around me to many fails. Now Dr.Niemchak is not out to replace your doctor or knock what you feel safe doing with what your doctor says. I am just speaking back there on my personal thoughts. But he is there to come along side you and help enhance your regime. And who knows some of us who have this kind of help may not even need the old regime! As Mr. Edison said " the doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs but will rather cure & prevent disease with nutrition." I think I might of found one of those doctors Mr. Edison for spoke of, we simply shall see. So stay tuned for what I discover next with this new journey & my thoughts on it all.
Mean while please feel free to join me in visiting IdealLifeStyleAdvocates online. They offer consults locally and nation wide. Do not worry if you do not live in Raleigh N.C. they also offer help over Skype! Now how cool is that!
Ok I am super excited about this review. I have been wanting to try out a glass water bottle. Thankfully Purifyou sent me this pink little cutie. It is super thick & strong. I love the grip protect ant around the bottle. They offer several cute colors to choose from. Glass is 100% recyclable, and doesn't leach harmful chemicals or unwanted flavors into your water like plastic or metal. This is why I am so excited to finally have a glass bottle.
Purifyou glass water bottles are reusable and is entirely BPA free, Phthalate free, PVC free, lead free, cadmium free. Plus, it's made from high borosilicate glass, which is more heat resistant than any other commonly used glass. Now you can save the planet and enjoy your warm tea too. Purifyou glass is the most durable in consumer retail, and with the added food-grade high-impact-resistant silicone sleeve for drop protection.
I wanted to make some steeped rosemary water to drink. I sat my glass bottle in the sun just for a little while. The great thing about this glass is you can even have warm tea in it not just cold water. Infusing herbs in water is a great way to do many things.
Rosemary water benefits:
Another great thing I LOVE about this bottle, when you purchase a portion of the profits is sent directly to building water wells for impoverished communities in Africa.
I received this product for free to review but all thoughts are my very own.
Today I am going to get a little more personal and sharing my heart in hopes to help someone.
I was driving recently actually for the first time alone since I had my surgery. I invited Jesus to be with me. I was thinking about stuff and life & what transition in life I am now going through. This month I was forced by surgery into menopause. Yes possibly 10-15 years before my time. But it was necessary. With the Brca2(read more about it here) mutation that I have that also caused my mom's ovarian cancer that she died of at age 54 I truly needed to do it. I had thoughts of doubt while I was driving and the seat belt was hitting my tender wounds in my abdomen from surgery. I cried for what all I have lost. I was doubting did I do the right thing? I wanted more kids at times. I wanted to grow old gracefully on my time. I wanted to have my own estrogen & progesterone that a womens body needs for balance longer in so many areas. I do not want to now fight bone density and moods etc. I sat and thought of all the new problems I have to face by NOT having my hormones & the ovaries that make them. They had to come out so I wouldn't face the same fate as my mom. I felt over whelmed. Then I felt Adonai gently remind me to move forward. He reminded me NOT to look back. Like Lot's wife who turned back against God's instruction and turned to a pillar of salt. God showed me the importance of not looking back but moving forward in an instant! So I pondered this all week. All of the sudden I felt Abba giving me excitement about things to come and not to worry about what I lost. I still feel loss in me on so many levels but,,, he can sustain my health, my hormones & such I need not fear. You see my doctor did not want to give me hormone replacement like most women would be able to get but with my mutation any hormone replacement I get will increase my risk again for cancers. My doctor agreed to let me have a very low dose and I will take it every other day instead of daily. So I will be functioning on lower than low levels until age 45. By then they say I MUST be off if not sooner. So my faith in Adonai is all I will have to help me in this time to fill in the voids. I am feeling the effects of loosing parts of me God designed me to have earlier this month but I can say I can tell God is with me helping me! I have seen his hand gently guide me & ease my fears. I have felt him tenderly speak to me. He is helping me over come some physical struggles I have already had. Something else I have learned. I am brave! I feel brave. I have had to face what killed my mom in the face and hopefully change a time line ( it is not certain what I did will totally prevent cancer but it did help my situation in so many ways to bring the percentage down). I could of kept going and not do a thing but I want to do more things on this earth. You see that's another looking back that day I was pondering I thought of all the mistakes I made in life. I was feeling guilt for not measuring up and not obeying God when I should of. For not reaching out to others when he said to & so on. Etc. But there again when he spoke to me MOVE FORWARD, Do Not Look Back, it spoke to every thought of failure in me. It spoke to every woulda coulda shoulda I was thinking on many levels of my life. His one statement in my soul ministered to so much of me! He guided my thoughts to you want more children? Love the ones who need love and be there for all my kids and even the forgotten ones. So many possibilities to mother and still be a mom! (My kids are older now, they still need me of course but it's not the same as when they where young that was a struggle of mine sometimes). He showed me stop thinking of what you didn't do for me but do something NOW. And I felt him guide me to what will you do NOW for me? I think God's feelings get hurt when we dwell on our failures or losses & our past sin. He made a way through his son Jesus ( Yeshua) for us to be redeemed according to John 3:16. I accepted that way so why on earth should I dwell on what He has already forgiven? He wants my eyes on the here and now and be ready to do what he says. I must stay focused for what is to come!
So I must obey and not dwell on the past & all my losses. I must focus my eyes on Him and move forward only remembering the blessings not the lacks,sins & the failures! Every day is a new day and a chance to shine for Him and live for what he made me to be in every area of my life. I hope at the end of my journey he will say well done thy good and faithful servant. So here I go in this new season of my life ready to move forward.

First here is what I got to review from SlimQuick Pure extra strength drink mixes.
As some of my readers might know I am BRCA 2 positive. You can read more of my story HERE. With that said I just had July 9th 2015 my surgery done to remove my ovaries & tubes to help prevent cancer. I have many other things I must do. But one very important thing is nutrition. I want products that are not filled with junk. I am excited that SlimQuick is a pure product. It contains natural ingredients such as Bio Pure green tea,vitamin D ( which you read in my recent post HERE how important that is), calcium, antioxidants & more. Another ingredient I saw they have in this product is turmeric! I love turmeric root. That is great for so many health issues including being proactive for cancer.
SlimQuick Pure claims to address 6 areas most women struggle in and I myself more so now due to my premature menopause. But this mix is great for women of any age. Those six areas are metabolism, appetite, stress, energy, water, hormones. These are 6 major factors that a lot of us struggle in.
I struggle with drinking enough water. I do not like plain water. But I also do not like many drink mixes. I tell you the truth, the SlimQuick drink mix was AMAZING! I loved it. It came in mixed berries flavor. So me not desiring plain water is solved! Now I can address those six areas we talked about while drinking a flavorful water. This is so exciting to me. SlimQuick Pure isolated the fat burning component in green tea to help speed up metabolism from here on out I am going to need that. I am also delighted to find out they offer free encouragement & guidance in community support on your weight loss journey. You can find that by clicking HERE.
I have noticed since I started this routine of drinking SlimQuick that I do have a bit more energy without the jidders. I also notice in just a week and a half I have lost 7 pounds just by drinking my water! I have not lost that much that fast in a long time. I am amazed. I am wondering what the results will be in a month?! I will surely be looking forward to a long lasting relationship with this product & brand.

You can buy SlimQuick Pure at Walmart.com, Walmart Stores, Target, Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid, Publix, Kroger, Supervalu, Ahold & in Amazon.com
I have been enjoying researching natural health remedies and sharing it with you. Next I happily bring you information on apple cider vinegar. This is a miracle liquid! It tastes sour of course but there are things you can do to make it go down better. I have been taking for now 2 tbps a day in the evening or morning which ever. But I want to go to 2 in evening & 2 in morning every day at some point. For now I have been doing only 2 to see how my body does in experimenting. It has been amazing so far! Now listed below is a mixture of my own findings that this ACV has helped me, some are ways I have heard from others who use it and lastly some I have found in researching it. I am sure there is more to this apple cider vinegar but this is a great start! I look forward to writing about this again in the future as I learn even more about it.
Tip: Try to get apple cider vinegar that is organic and with the mother as shown for example in my picture above. That is the type I use and suggest. But if you can not find it where you live the type at Wal-mart will do some good too.
I love learning new things. Recently I was researching what benefits we can have by taking vitamin D supplements. I wanted to share with you some of my discoveries. Did you know that vitamin D can be difficult for the body to absorb from most food? If you take 2,000-3,000 IU daily( adult dose) of ( the most absorbent) D-3 it can make all the difference. Or get some sun! Getting enough sunlight will give you a natural source of D-3. Or eat some fatty fish. Eating some fatty meat when you take your D-3 supplement will help you absorb it better too!
Be careful because some medications can decrease your absorption of vitamin D, so check into that first!
I hope you have enjoyed this simple guide of the wonders of Vitamin D
I am so excited to share with you my latest product review. This product is right up my ally with it's all natural and super healthy properties! I received the night time tea bags, the day time tea & strawberry infuser.
I wanted a gentle detox and Skinny Teatox was just the answer. This was a 14 day detox. I will first tell you more details of how a 14 day teatox will help you if you chose to do it too.
A 14 Day Teatox Help You With:
-Increase energy levels
All the ingredients in Skinny Teatox are 100% natural. There are no chemicals or preservatives. Gluten free. GMO free. Nut free.
I took the Skinny Teatox in the morning. I used the Skinny Teatox tea bags every other evening. They say only do the evening one every other night because of certain herbs that are in it. Also during this teatox detox you should drink lots of water and exercise. I did not do either of those as I should. But I will tell you I still saw results with this 14 day period. I lost 3 pounds! Amazing if you ask me. I also feel better. It did not upset my stomach in any way and it actually tasted fabulous! And, I think the strawberry infuser is just adorable. I am awarding Skinny Teatox my Homemaker-Mom Seal of Approval for an outstanding product. I think if you are looking for an all natural super easy to do detox this would be perfect!

This is so very important to the men in your life. I myself have a beloved father in law who has prostate cancer. Polaris Prostate Cancer testing through Myriad Genetics Lab combines traditional risk factors with molecular assessment of the aggressiveness of a persons cancer. Prolaris is the only test that measures how fast prostate cancer cells are dividing. This will in turn give doctors a better look at the right treatment for that particular person. I myself have had a genetic test done through Myriad Labs, that has potentially saved my life. You see my mom died at a young age of 54 with Ovarian Cancer. After she died I had a Brca test through Myriad Labs. I tested positive for Brca2 and you read more of my story here. Brca is a genetic mutation that leads to all female cancers for those who test positive . I am now proactive since I know what I am up against thanks to Myriad. I go in for screenings every 6 months and will have preventive surgeries to help me not end up like my mom.
Now ladies how about share this email with all the men you care about. Polaris will send only 3 emails to your loved one in a series. They will not sell their information.

I received free from Influenster.com a VoxBox. VoxBoxes are super fun because you do not have to do or pay a thing to get them. You simply agree to share your personal thoughts in social media of the products. And if your reading this going o no I would love to do it but I do not have a blog that is ok! You do not need one to partake! Recently I was super excited to get the latest box with Neutrogena Naturals face cleansing wipes. As most of you who read my blog know I am Brca2 high risk for all female cancers & skin cancer. I have to be proactive. I am seeking brand products that do not have all the unhealthy junk in them & cancer causing carcinogenics to help me along to be better health in my journey. As I find them I share them here. Also join in the fun at #wipeforwater in Twitter. #contest @influenster @neutrogena
That is why I am so super excited about this product. They are free of all parabens,sulfates you name it. I took a challenge to clean my face for 7 days with this product instead of washing my face with water in honor of Earth Month! I have to say it has been a super journey each night. I love the ease & simplicity of these wipes. They did not break me out. They left a light non harsh scent to my face. They left me super soft. I have to say these will now be the makeup removers I will be using from now on. I love LOVE love the fact they are free of parabens,sulfates,dyes,phthalates, petrolatum, & other harsh chemicals that so many other makeup removers have. I am happy with the results. This product earns my Homemaker-Mom Seal of Approval for sure!
