Fight, Focus, & Renew

It’s no secret here, I am a HUGE fan of organic apple cider vinegar. Let me rephrase that, I am HUGE fan of the benefits…the taste, that will grow on you!

Organic ACV has been a part of daily routine for almost ten years now. I started my ACV regimen by taking 2 tablespoons each morning. While I stick with that routine a majority of the time, I have found some ways to make my ACV regimen a little more enjoyable, effective, and taste better.

If you’re new here, check out my post on White House Foods DETOX drink. This is my monthly detox drink which is made with Organic ACV with mother. I drink one bottle of Detox for 7 days each month. You can read more here!

Onto these NEW drinks… FIGHT, FOCUS, & RENEW!

These drinks are all made with organic apple cider vinegar with mother, are ready to drink (although I prefer to refrigerate,) and taste delicious! These drinks are NOT a substitute for my monthly Detox but I do like to trade them out for my daily dose of ACV.

Here’s a little description of each flavor:

 

Fight

  • FIGHT: orange, ginger, and turmeric
    • ingredients known to help boost the immune system.

 

 

 

  • FOCUS: blueberry, green tea, and ginsengFocus
    • ingredients known to help relax your mind and soul.

 

 

 

 

  • RENEW: lime, grape, and mintRenew
    • ingredients known to help rejuvenate your mind and body.

 

 

I love that these drinks were curated with purposeful ingredients!

 

You can find all of these drinks in Wal-Mart, White House Foods Online, or here on Amazon.

Comment below and let me know if you try and which one is your favorite!

 

As always, thanks for reading!

7 Day Detox Groups!

If you follow me on Insta or Facebook, you either A) see a lot about Detox Groups but keep scrolling or B) you have joined the madness! So what is the madness? In short, these Detox groups are for anyone who is interested in having fun while being part of a group who comes together (figuratively speaking…because it’s all online) once a month to do a gentle detox and feel our best!

First off, what is the Detox? We use the White House Foods® Detox drink and follow a 7 day plan. The detox drink is a pre-made, ready-to-drink mixture of Organic Apple Cider Vinegar with the mother, lemon, honey, and cinnamon. We drink 1 bottle per day, half in the morning and half in the evening. The group is totally FREE to join, you only have to purchase your 7 bottles of White House Detox® from your local grocery or Amazon! I have written about WHY I chose this Detox regimen to follow monthly and all the benefits here. There’s also a video that goes more into detail about the 7 days of detoxing here

So back to the group

Where? The group takes place on a secret group online. So whether you’re in Virginia or California…or at work or on your couch at home.. you can be preset!

When? Our monthly group takes place the first FULL week of each month for 7 days, Monday-Sunday. There’s a daily challenge posted each morning, so members are asked to check in at least once each day!

WHY? Each month, the group has a theme to keep the challenges exciting and engaging. Such as, March Madness (…coming up March 4th!) There are daily challenges that promote a successful detox, such as sharing a healthy recipe, increasing physical activity for the day, or sharing a fun selfie of you with your detox. Simple & fun, yet keeping accountability. How many times have you started something for yourself, only to quit on day 2..or maybe 3? These groups are 7 days, it’s only 7 days to commit to yourself.. plus with the community we have created in these groups, you won’t want to stop! I find myself looking forward to the group starting again to get caught back up with all the members! Did I mention we have fun prizes for those who are active and participate? PLUS, everyone who completes the 7 days receives a gift from me!

HOW? Are you READY to join us for the next group…or maybe you have some specific questions for me?  Fill out this form here, and I will send you the details!

Here are some reviews/results from current members!

“I lost 2 lbs, bloating is gone, and sleeping great! So glad I did this!”

“Less bloat, better digestion!” 

“Felt less bloated this go around! This group is amazing!”

“So much more energy, slept better, bloating gone!! I lost a pound this week!”

“I feel amazing! More energy and less coffee. I haven’t noticed a weight change but I am less bloat and not gaining any weight!”

“Feeling great! Lost 7 lbs this detox. Lost 4 lbs in December’s group. Definitely more energy.”

“Lost 3 pounds! Sleeping great, more energy, clearer skin.”

“Appetite suppression, bloating down!”

Whether you’re looking for a way to maintain a current healthy lifestyle, or you’re looking for a place to start, I truly believe these groups are the perfect place for anyone. Male or female. A regular at the gym or just trying to figure our where to start!

As always, thanks for reading! Until next time..

Apple Cider Vinegar Detox

I’m sure you’ve seen all the hype on Organic Apple Cider Vinegar with Mother and the health benefits it can provide. While I have been a big believer of drinking 2 tablespoons of ACV daily, I decided to change things up a few months ago and I wanted to share my Detox_16ozexperience!

Since White House Foods® came out with their Detox drink, it has been a game changer for me. The Detox is a “ready-to-drink” mix of Organic ACV with mother, lemon, cinnamon, and honey. Each month, I do a “detox week” which consists of 1 bottle per day for 7 days. I drink half of the bottle in the morning as soon as I wake up and the other half in the evening before bed. When I am not detoxing, I continue with two tablespoons of Organic ACV per day.

Why I LOVE this detox?

  • Digestion issues – no more! Even after a weekend of eating junk or a vacation, a detox will totally straighten out my system and keep me regular!
  • I sleep like a baby, not an actual baby… I actually sleep sound, which was next to impossible after having my son.
  • ENERGY. Gosh, so much natural energy. I just realized I haven’t had coffee yet, it’s 2 p.m. on a detox day!
  • Bloat, be gone. I am not kidding when I say I have had major digestion issues which have always led to crazy bloat. Detoxing once a month has played a major role in healing my digestive issues and reducing bloat. #amen
  • Skin. I always thought acne was something that just went away with your awkward stage. Apparently I was wrong about both, acne and awkward stages never actually leave you. The Detox seems to help keep my breakouts to a minimum, which is an added bonus because I never expected my skin to be affected but I will gladly take it!

I have always been a firm believer in the magical powers (a little dramatic there) of Organic ACV, but I am even more passionate about the White House Foods® Detox !

If you’re interested in trying the Detox, it can be purchased online (click here), Wal-Mart, Martin’s, Food Lion, and many other locations. If you need some help finding it near you, comment below. I’m happy to help!

Looking for a little extra support & accountability to complete a DETOX? I hold monthly 7 Day DETOX Groups online! It’s SO fun to do a DETOX together, stay accountable, & share the experience with others. The group is TOTALLY free, all you need is 7 bottles of White House Detox! If you’d like more info or you’re interested in the next group. Click HERE, and fill out the form!

As always, thanks for reading!

9 Must-Have Items For 2019!

How are we already at the beginning of another NEW year?

If you’re like me, you start each year with good intentions of cleaning, organizing, and setting fitness goals but somewhere between January and late March….. the passion for those goals starts to fade.

This year, I am choosing to start small and work on GROWTH instead of starting BIG and feeling like I failed when it all becomes too overwhelming.

Here are some of my favorite things that inspire me to stick with my goals! Click in underlined word for a direct shopping link!

9MustHaveItems

  1.  New Shoes: New shoes = workout definitely happening! Invest in some great shoes that feel and look good. Seems a little silly, but I promise it works. These shoes are worth every penny, they’re adorable, and skip the annoying shoe strings that no one actually has time for anyways!
  2. Water Bottle: Drinking more water is something I always need to strive to do. Water is SO good for you and is an easy way to start a healthier year. I love this encouraging water jug!
  3. Planner: I am OBSESSED with this planner, because it covers a few of my resolutions in ONE. This is a weekly planner, devotion/bible study notebook, and health tracker.
  4. Detox: When it comes to “diets,” I have to be realistic. A “diet” will never work for me, but a lifestyle of healthier choices is totally DOABLE. This little bottle of magic has helped keep in line so I have to share. One week per month, I commit to drinking a bottle of this a day.
  5. Sports Bras: When is the last time your purchased yourself a NEW bra? I had to add this one because I went to put on a sports bra and it was a nursing bra…it was also 2 sizes too big. Ladies, treat yourself. Your children get new clothes every season, you deserve it. Also, it’s not good for you to be wearing the wrong size bra…especially when you’re working out. #keepingitreal
  6. Car Organizer: If you’re a mom, there’s really not much to say here. You get it. War zone, danger zone, black hole….or as other people call it, the backseat. My dad got these for me for Christmas and so far, so good. I figured I should return the favor and help a sister out. Get these and get your sanity back!
  7. Daily Devotional: Speaking of sanity, make time for a daily devotion. You won’t regret it. You don’t have to commit to reading an entire chapter of the bible every single day, start small. I’ve linked one that I think can be life changing.
  8. Crockpot: I’m making it my goal this year to have a few less trips through the Chickfila drive-thru and a few more sit-down dinners. Confession, cooking dinner seems exhausting after a long day and I am SO quick to talk myself out of it. This year, I am going to depend on my crockpot a lot more. I plan on putting dinner in the crockpot in the morning so in the evening it’s not easier to pick up a chicken sandwich and waffles fries.
  9. Tupperware: Stop letting that pile of mix matched Tupperware with missing lids drive you crazy. Throw it ALL out. It’s not going to bully you and make you feel like everything is falling apart one more day. Trash it. Start fresh.

Goals are made to be met.

Goals are made to grow you…not overwhelm you.

Start small, conquer, and set out for another goal.

If you use any of these items, please comment below and tell me how they’re helping you slide into 2019 feeling like a million bucks.
