Heathlier Me

I have decided that enough is enough. I am tired (literally), of being overweight and unhealthy. I have been working out, and that has helped, but it hasn't been enough. I have also been on antidepressants for the last 8 1/2 years. Something I have really wanted to get off of. I wanted to deal with my depression the natural way.
I was introduced to a product about a year ago called Shakeology. I was interested, but it was not in the budget. My super, bestest friend Ellen sent me a bag to try. I will be forever grateful to her for that. It has changed my life. After 2 weeks of replacing breakfast with Shakeology, I got off my meds. I didn't tell anyone, especially my husband. He would FREAK! I had been off the antidepressants for 2 weeks when I asked my husband if he had noticed anything different about my moods. He said he hadn't noticed anything and why was he asking. I told him I had stopped my meds. He was a little apprehensive but was extremely happy that we had found something natural that works.

I am SO happy with this product that I decided to start selling it. It has worked wonders for me and I want everyone to know about it.
You can read all about the wonderful benefits here.

I have also started doing hot yoga. WOW is all I can say about that. I have never had a more amazing workout than that. I am doing that here: hot yoga. If you are in St. George, UT. or ever come to visit; you MUST try it out!
me after my 1st class. SOAKED!

 I have taken some pictures while working out to prove to myself I was there. Reminds me to go back.

Here is the NEW Vegan Chocolate Shakeology!!
I will reach my goal by the end of the year. I will, I will, I will, I WILL!

I know, I know. I suck at posting. Between school, 5 kids and their schedules, a home and 2 businesses, it is amazing I haven't gone completely loco at times. 

Anyway, back to why I am writing this post in the first place. I have decided to change the whole look and feel of my home. This has been a LONG time coming. What do I want? The beach! Gone are the days of "St. George" themed desert colors. I want my place to be soothing as the ocean; even though I live 450 miles from it. 

First I had to pick a color. I went with Behr's Skyline Steel   750E-3. GORGEOUS!! Now to cover the light brown.

Scott lending a helping hand

Brooke got lent a helping hand, or two! :)
My dear sweet friends Brooke and Scott helped me with the project since my husband has said that he will never help me paint again. (he hates it)
Almost done. 
Here is the "finished" project. It isn't really close to being finished. I am on the hunt for some really awesome frames for one of my walls and the perfect vinyl saying for our family picture wall.

Now onto the kitchen/dining room. 

I was tired of the "two-tone" look. Living Room one color and the rest another. So I decided to go the same throughout. My hubs LOVES how the cabinets now "pop" against the new color. I still don't have the heart to tell him I still painting them white.

And finally onto the real reason I am FINALLY posting. I found these beauties while at the D.I. (our local thrift store) for ONLY $27.00 for the set!! WHAT???? I am in love with the color and the how amazing they will look with my "new" home!
