Sick Maintenance or Sick Prevention? | Which Would You Choose?

Would you rather spend your money on sick prevention or sick maintenance? 

Are you feeling tired, under the weather, constant allergies or headaches? What are you doing to eliminate them? Sick maintenance? Meaning go to the doctor, fork out your co-pay, possibly get a prescription, maybe buy some OTC meds, experience the side effects, dealing with insurance deductibles, the list can go on and on!

What if...just what started spending your time and energy on sick PREVENTION instead of maintenance? How do you think your health would be affected? How do you think your pocketbook would be affected?

If you're constantly sick or feeling bad, now may be the time to do a check on what's affecting you. Lack of sleep? Poor eating habits? Allergies? Is your gut unhealthy? And now think about how much you're spending each month to try to get healthy again, only to get sick AGAIN a few weeks later! Ugh! 

Trust me, we've been there. We were there for a long time.

We finally got sick of sick and decided to get healthier!

Now that we're using natural supplements and cleaning products, our allergies are BETTER, our gut health is WAY BETTER, this mama has TONS MORE ENERGY, my sweet husband has been sinus infection FREE, our son has been stomach virus FREE, and we're not spending money on sick maintenance. 

We're spending that money on sick PREVENTION. And we've reaped the rewards of changing our lifestyle by doing so!

Now, I'm not a doctor, I will NEVER prescribe something to you. I will ALWAYS tell you to ask the opinion of your own doctor first.

However, I'm happy to share with you what safe, natural remedies work for our family! After lots of research, our family chose to use Shaklee's products for a number of reasons, the top two I'll list. 

1) Their products are based on science, not fads. Shaklee's products go through rigorous quality testing before being put on the shelves. Check out Clinical Research and the Landmark Study for more information!  

2) Integrity. I don't know about you, but integrity is huge when it comes to choosing a company that's all about health and wellness. Shaklee is built on integrity and taking care of people; in fact, you won't find a recall from our products anywhere. They want their products to be SAFE!

There is no such thing as a miracle pill, miracle oil, miracle drink, get better in 3 days while you lose 30lbs in the process. Sorry folks, it just doesn't work that way. 

Building better health takes time and commitment; not a whole lot of time, but you've got to be invested in yourself and your family for their future health! And it's not that hard!

I've rediscovered my passion for HELPING OTHERS get healthier, happier and reap the rewards of this lifestyle. I want to help you too!

Feel free to comment, email me, or find me on Facebook and we'll connect and chat!

Here's to YOUR HEALTH!

Our Family's Favorite Toddler Books

Today I wanted to share with you our family's favorite toddler books. We love to read in our home; the boys get stories before bed every night, and any time they bring a book to us during the day, Matt and I are happy to read to them! We want to instill good reading habits in them and encourage their imaginations through reading!

Here's a list of some of our favorites! 

Anything by Sandra Boynton - her books are funny and have a super fun cadence to them. Our favorites are Hippos Go Berserk, Hey! Wake Up, and The Going to Bed Book.

Goodnight Gorilla - this one really lets us and the boys use their imaginations to tell the story because it's just a picture book. 

Where's Spot? - this one is perfect for young toddlers, because they love to open the flaps.

Little Blue Truck - a fun, rhyming book that also teaches a lesson about helping others, even when they're being stinkers.

Home for a Bunny - a classic. In fact, the copy that we have is the one I had growing it's OLD! I don't know what I like best about it- the gorgeous illustrations or the story line!

The Goodnight Train - it's so soothing for bedtime; it makes me sleep just reading it!

Anything by Mercer Mayer - we love the Little Critter books! They're sweet and funny, but always have a great moral to the story such as sharing 

What are your favorite books to read to your kids?

Your Health and the Environment

I believe most of us are committed to good health and have daily activities and routines we follow to help support our health. We exercise, take natural supplements, drink a high-protein smoothie, drink water, wear sunscreen...the list goes on! 
All these small steps taken day in and day out lead to a stronger and healthier YOU!
While all of those things are an excellent way to be healthy, I want to be sure you aren’t missing an important part of the health puzzle by being exposed to chemicals in your environment.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) tracks more than 84,000 chemicals used in commerce.  These chemicals, have worked their way into our everyday lives. Now, no matter how clean you try to live, it is impossible to escape exposure from these chemicals that may put an amazingly heavy burden on our liver and other detoxification pathways in our bodies. Chemicals are found in the food we eat, clothes we wear, personal care products we use, and even the very products that we use to keep our homes clean and safe.
Take a look at the chemicals found in common household cleaners:
NameFound inPotentially harmful effects
PhthalatesSolvents used to make fragrancesEndocrine disrupters: Men with high levels of phthalates in their blood have reduced sperm counts.
Perchloroethylene(PERC)Dry-cleaning solution, spot removers, carpet cleanersThe EPA classifies PERC as a possible carcinogen and has ordered a phase-out of the chemical by 2020.
TriclosanAn antibacterial found in dishwashing detergents and hand soapsLeads to drug-resistant bacteria and is a possible hormone disrupter.
2-ButoxyethanolMostly found in window cleaners, is responsible for the sweet smellGeneral irritant when inhaled, at high levels can damage lungs, liver, and kidneys
AmmoniaFound in many cleaning productsWhen inhaled, it can irritate the lungs and potentially worsen asthma.
ChlorineAnother ubiquitous chemical, found in toilet bowl cleaner, mildew removers, laundry products, and even tap waterChlorine is very reactive and irritates skin and lungs. It may disrupt the thyroid.
While it can be daunting to think that we are surrounded by so many chemicals, the good news is that there are fantastic natural choices that will do the job these chemicals do just as well without exposing you and your family to potentially harmful fumes, solvents, and toxins.
Be sure you only have safe, green cleaners under your sink and in your laundry. Choosing green cleaners means that you are doing the best for your health, the environment, and your family’s well-being! My family exclusively uses Shaklee green cleaners...they're safe, nontoxic, they work and are saving us a ton of money!
What is your favorite green cleaning tip?
Thank you to Dr. Jamie McManus for contributing much of this information!

What I'm Reading Wednesday

First, I want to express my sadness over the shooting at Ft. Hood today. I, along with so many, am shocked that this happened again, just 5 years after the first shooting. Matt and I are praying for the victims and their families. 

Today I want to share with you what I'm reading!
The New Parenting Style That Might Be More Than a Fad. So when this started showing up in my Facebook feed yesterday with people all up in arms, I had to read the article. At first I was like, "What the what?? Are you CRAZY??" Then, I clicked a few links and found out the truth of said was a brilliant April Fool's joke thanks to Honest Toddler! I love it! (And it goes to show that you've GOT to do research when you read stuff on the interwebs...just because it's there doesn't make it true!) Big props to you Honest Toddler for fooling so many people!
15 Ab Exercises by Maria Kang, made famous via social media for her 'controversial' post about "What's your excuse" regarding making time for exercise. Well, I happen to think she's on her and I love how she tells everyone straight up that she's not perfect, she has stretch marks, she misses workouts, she doesn't eat clean 24/7. Anyhow... this is a great list of ab exercises and I've been doing them for a few weeks. So yes, I'm reading about ab workouts! :)
Monthly Subscription Box List from Two Chics and a Blog. I currently don't subscribe to any monthly boxes, but I've considered it. I had NO IDEA there were so many! It's kind of overwhelming, but really neat to see all the choices out there!
Hyperthyroid Diagnosis from Pomme Wellness, one of my colleagues. Ya'll, read her husband's story. Read it! It's scary, but has a WONDERFUL ending!
What are you reading this week?

My Favorite Laundry Detergent

How much do you think you spend on laundry detergent every month? $15? $20? Maybe more?  I was as well, up until about two years ago. I used to use all the name brand detergents...tide, gain, you name it. I was paying for expensive laundry detergent that didn't work very well and it seemed like our clothes were wearing out faster. 

So I finally got tired of it and switched to a natural laundry detergent. I love this one. Love it! For just about a million reasons, but I'll only list a few!

  • It's $40.25 (member price) for a 14lb box and has lasted me NINE MONTHS
  • We're averaging about $5 per month for laundry detergent
  • I do a LOT of laundry
  • This detergent average about $.14 per load
  • Our clothes are cleaner, with no soap residue, and they seem to be lasting longer
  • It's really good for the environment with no phosphates or chlorine. It's also biodegradable, concentrated, and hypoallergenic

What's Stopping You?

Friends, what's stopping you from joining the mission towards a healthier, happier home??

My husband and I thought living a more natural lifestyle was going to break the bank. It hasn't! Our family's health is the best it's ever been, which means less doctor visits, less prescriptions, and less time off work, thanks to safe, natural nutrition!

Our home is finally REALLY clean, thanks to nontoxic cleaners that actually work! My skin is looking and feeling better, and I lost those last few baby lbs thanks to excellent beauty care and a tasty weight management product.

Shaklee is NOT about selling miracles and I'm not either! Shaklee is all about SCIENCE, not fads! Trust me, I have not decided to make Shaklee my brand partner so that I can sell, sell, sell to people. No, that's not it. I chose to partner with Shaklee because I have a passion for helping other moms get their families healthier.  And in turn, I'm rewarded for it. But an even bigger bonus out of all that is that I not only help these moms get their families healthier, but I'm helping them either get their favorite Shaklee products FREE every month or create their own health and wellness business!

I love what I do and I want to help YOU, too! Whether you're interested in learning more about our products or you're ready to start earning an income, please message me at jallen44 at gmail dot com!

Cleaning Windows | Getting Clean for Spring

Today I wanted to share with you the simple solution my family uses to clean all the windows and glass in our home.
Yep, you guessed it…it’s a product by Shaklee (my favorite health and wellness company ever!).
We use Shaklee’s Basic H solution as our window cleaner! Did you even know it can be used to clean windows??
It’s simple…just take 16 oz of water and add just two drops of Basic H and give it a shake. There you have it! A full bottle of safe, nontoxic window cleaner!
This is how I’m kicking off our spring cleaning for 2014, by getting all the windows and mirrors clean and dirt-free. We have a ton of windows so it’s going to take me a full day (on top of all my other domestic duties!)

Have you tried Basic H for window cleaning yet?

Deck Remodel | DIY

Today I wanted to give you a glimpse into our home!

We moved into our home (our first!) 7 1/2 years ago. We'd only planned on staying here five years, but doesn't always go as planned, right? It's all good though, because we love our home and our neighborhood!

Our home was built in 1986 and it had pretty much the original EVERYTHING when we moved in! So we've been slowly, but surely, updating it over the years.

Today, I'm going to show you our deck remodel. We actually remodeled it last year and we love it so, so much! It's much bigger than the old one and is so much more functional! We hired a contractor to lay the frame and build the benches and steps. Then Matt finished laying the flooring of the deck. Doing it this way saved us quite a bit of money!

We just love spending time out on the deck. We added a nice table and chairs so we can eat dinner outside. We're fortunate that there are a lot of nice weather days where we live, so we get a lot of use out of the deck! This is just one of the many, many DIY projects we've taken on since moving in! Do you DIY when it comes to home improvement?

On the First Day of Spring...

Woo hoo! It's FINALLY spring!

Did winter seem to DRAG on for you, too?

Thankfully, we're kicking off the first day of spring with temps in the 70's today! I love it!

Starting Monday, I'm going to be embarking on a Get Clean for Spring series that will hopefully help you (and me!) get your homes cleaned and organized! I can't wait!

But first, we all need our arsenal of safe, nontoxic cleaning products, right?

I get asked all the time what I clean my house with to keep it both clean and toxin-free! Well this is it, and to celebrate spring, I'm having a special!

Box up all those chemical cleaners and replace ALL of your household cleaners, including laundry and dish soaps, with these green, non-toxic cleaners that are cost effective and really work!

Bonus: Purchasing this kit qualifies you for a FREE Shaklee membership and a FREE canister of Cafe Latte smoothie mix! Your membership gets you 15% off all products!!

I'm so thankful for you and for everyone who has joined my Member Team! Together, we're making a great difference in the health and happiness of our families!!

What I'm Reading Wednesday

Happy Wednesday to you!

Here are a few blog posts I'm loving this week! I hope you like them as well! And I'd love for you to share your favorites...I'm always on the hunt for new reading material!

My friend and colleague, Amber, shared her wonderful story about how she and her husband were able to get their daughter off prescription allergy and asthma medications! Their journey is awesome and not only is their daughter so much healthier, but they saved over $100 per month just by switching to natural supplements! Annnnddd... she is being flown out to New York this week by Shaklee to share her story! I LOVE testimonials like this! Read it here: Asthma....7 months later

 Lil Blue of my favorite blogs ever. I've been reading Ashley's blog since 2009! Wow! She recently posted a fun tutorial for personalized burlap bags. I think these would be super cute teacher gifts this spring! Read about it here: Personalized Burlap Bags

My friend, Jenny, shared how to clean your stainless steel water bottles using lemon essential oils. This was timely for me...since you're not supposed to put the water bottles in the dishwasher, I've always wondered how clean I'm actually getting them! Read about how to do it here: Sanitizing Your Reusable Water Bottle

Lastly, I just recently discovered this blog, Walking in Memphis High Heels. I'm so loving Laura's style and I wish I had more places to wear her super cute ideas! I'm a workout clothes type of girl during the week, but I LOVE getting dressed up when I can! I really, really love this maxi dress! Read about it here: Maxi

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! It's been a LONG time since I've done a Friday Favorites post! I've had some big time writers block lately, but really want to get back in the swing of things. I thought a Friday Favorites would be a great way to kick off the first Friday of the month!


1. Finding selfies from my five year old on my phone. These types of pictures always make me smile...what a goof! Love this boy!

2. Almond Joy Granola from The Lemon Bowl blog. This is has become a staple in our home...I love it! I eat it with plain Greek yogurt for breakfast, or a snack, or dinner...

3. Homemade chocolate banana 'ice cream.' Easy peasy and really tasty! Take a few frozen bananas, a dash of vanilla, and a scoop of chocolate protein powder, then turn on the food processor until it has the consistency of soft serve ice cream. My boys (and so did I)!! Note: frozen bananas and food processor blades are LOUD

4. Green smoothies. Matt and I are becoming totally addicted to these yummy smoothies! We make one for breakfast almost every morning. The one in the picture had spinach, strawberries, mango, blueberries, Greek yogurt, unflavored protein powder (you can put this in SO MANY recipes), and chia seeds.  Yum! Did you see how I didn't clear out a space and make my kitchen look spotless?? :)

5. New hair! It had been awhile since I'd had my hair highlighted, and I wanted to do something a little different. The ombre look is in now, but my stylist and I decided that having a very dark (almost brown) up against my face would just depress me...I'm used to lighter blonde, especially now that the weather is supposed to be warming up! So she did an awesome dark brown, light blonde highlight panel-style all over. I love it! Don't you just love having your hair cut, colored, and styled??

The Benefits of a Get Clean Kit

If you know me in person, you know that I just rave about Shaklee's Get Clean line. We love it! It has completely replaced all of our toxic, caustic, harmful cleaners. No fumes, no worries about calling Poison's a fantastic cleaning line!

I wanted to give you some details about our Get Clean Kits. I've had some excellent questions about them and a few people say they probably wouldn't use everything in the kits. I get it; trust me I get it.

If you're like me, the word 'kit' can be a turn off. I don't know how many times I've purchased a kit because of the supposed value and was pretty disappointed that there were a few products in said kit that I really had no use for. Money down the drain, right?

The Shaklee Get Clean kits are definitely something you will be using. Every last product. Every last drop.

Check out what comes in the Get Clean Starter Kit. (And see all my comments in red next to the descriptions!):
  • Basic H Organic Super Cleaning Concentrate - We've had our Basic H concentrate for almost two years and we are just halfway through the bottle! We make a new bottle of cleaner every week to clean the kitchen; that's how concentrated it is!
  • Germ Off Disinfecting Wipes - These belong in the car, in the bathroom, or in the baby's room!
  • Nature Bright Laundry Booster and Stain Remover - Awesome stuff! Compare it to OxiClean! It gets stains out and helps whiten your clothes! You can also use it to clean your toilets to get the gunk off.
  • Dish Wash Concentrate - LOVE this stuff. I was skeptical at first, but it's fantastic. A little goes a LONG way. See my post from last year comparing it to Seventh Generation!
  • Dish Washer Automatic Concentrate - Ya'll, this dish detergent is amazing! Just a little scoop cleans your dishes! It lasts FOREVER...for us, it lasts an average of 10 weeks!
  • Fresh Laundry Concentrate HE Compatible Liquid - Wonderful laundry detergent...fragrance free...and you don't even need as much as the directions call for!
  • Soft Fabric Dryer Sheets - Yes!
  • Dish Washer Automatic Concentrate Dispenser - this comes in handy for scooping out the dish detergent!
  • Nature Bright Dispenser - this is also handy for scooping out the Nature Bright. 
Including all the accessories you need to get really clean:
  • Organizer Caddy - holds all the spray bottles and cleaning cloths
  • Spray Bottles - mix up your Basic H solutions in each of these bottles. One each for all purpose, glass, and degreasing
  • Dropper Pipette - helps when you're mixing your Basic H solutions. 
  • 1/4 oz. Dispenser Pump for 32 oz. Bottle - this is for the laundry detergent
  • Laundry Measuring cup - don't think this needs explaining! :)
  • Dual Measuring Spoon - explanation needed!
  • Cleaning Accessories - these clothes and sponges are wonderful! You get a microfiber cleaning cloth, microfiber window cloths, microfiber dish sponge and a scrubber pad

Now, out of all of those items in the Get Clean Starter Kit, what WOULDN'T you use? In fact, in all of our kits, you're going to use every single product. Every single one!

Shaklee is all about health, wellness, keeping our Earth safe and healthy. Every product that goes into every Shaklee bottle is designed to improve health, work without compromise, and be gentle on the planet! Find out more about the Shaklee Difference here.

**This month only, I've extended my FREE membership and FREE smoothie promotion! When you purchase 50PV in products (this includes the Starter Kit!)**

Is the Starter Kit not for you? Not to worry...I have three other amazing Get Clean Kits that are sure to work for your home and your budget!

Keeping it Real | What My House REALLY Looks Like

Recently, I had someone comment on a photo I posted about how my home is so clean and tidy. She wanted to know how a work at home mom with two young boys kept her house so clean. Read on to see my post about it on Facebook.

Many bloggers seem to prefer to only show photos of their homes when their clean and organized and I think that's fantastic. But I don't want anyone to assume my entire home is always clean and well organized just from viewing a tiny photo of my counter. Trust me, it's not!

I want to keep it real for ya'll, so from here on out, you might see more pictures of my real life home...not as many of my 'quickly sweep everything off the counters and angle the camera so that it doesn't get the view of the trashed out playroom' type of photos!

So tell me, do you like seeing the 'keeping it real' photos?

Free to Be Who God Made You to Be

Oh, hi there!

It's been like a month since I've! 

I wanted to share with you a sermon from one of my friends, Amanda. This is a sermon she spoke at her church a few weeks back about learning to be free from body image issues and learning to love who God made us to be. 

I've known Amanda for a little over two years. We met at MOPS back in the day where she was the discussion group leader of our table. She is the type of person you want to be around...she's kind, generous, hilarious, never, ever hesitates to speak truth into people's lives...she's the real deal!

When Amanda and I saw each other regularly, she was really into clean eating and working out...I totally admired her dedication and determination. I didn't realize, however, that it ended up being really unhealthy for her in her thought life, spiritual life, family life, etc.

This sermon is how Amanda broke free from the power of food and body image

If you're a woman, then it's most likely you have struggled with poor body image at some point in your life.

I always have. I still struggle with it, sometimes on a daily basis. Sometimes to the point where I get obsessive about it. I keep a lot of it inside, but it's not healthy for me, it's not healthy for my family. 

It's funny how things work out...I'd actually been feeling myself getting back into the negative talk, the negative self image, when her sermon was posted online. I watched it last night; it was the right time for me! And I just knew I had to share it with my own community! This isn't just for women and girls...this is for the guys too. 

Watch Amanda's fantastic sermon about overcoming self image issues and learning to love yourself the way God loves you!

THANK YOU, Amanda for your powerful words!

Confession of a Beauty Product Snob

Yep, that's me! I used to be that girl who wouldn't buy beauty products unless they were high dollar. I spent many years searching for those perfect cleansers and moisturizers to do their thing. 

And many dollars down the drain on wasted money and on products that make my skin break out, had a gross smell, and frankly didn't get the job done!

I switched to Enfuselle from Shaklee last year and I'm not turning back! I have been so very pleased with the results just from my daily skin care regimen. I'm not even talking about the rest of the Enfuselle line with the awesome Skin Firming Serum, the Calming Complex or the Eye Treatment!

An important note about the Enfuselle line: there are no soaps, dyes, or parabens, and no overpowering fragrances! 

I use the Purifying Cleansing Gel in the mornings and before bed. In the mornings, I use the Time Repair with SPF 15. I'm a stickler for keeping my skin covered with a safe SPF. And in the evenings, I use the Hydrating Moisture cream. 

This skin care line goes a long way. I only need a little bit of each one to cleanse and moisturize my skin. This is great for my pocketbook...I don't have to buy it every month!

I cannot say enough about Enfuselle! Have you tried it yet?

PS: If you order this set that's in the photo, you receive a FREE lifetime Shaklee membership and a FREE canister of smoothie mix! Win-win-WIN!

PPS: This is only one of a gajillion ways you can get your FREE membership! Contact me for more info or check out my February Freebies post!

2014 To Do List | Checking In

Well, it's the beginning of February. Oh-em-gee! Good grief, the older I get the faster the days go by! It's going to be Christmas again before we know it!

Anyway, I'm doing a check in to see how my 2014 To Do List is coming along. This is one way to keep myself accountable, right? Just put it out there for all the world to see! :)

Here we go!

  1. Print photo books of each boy's first year.  STARTED! Woot-woot! After I began Kyle's (he's FIVE) I became totally overwhelmed. I had 20 pages of his first MONTH. At that rate, it would take me 5 years and $5k just to make baby books for both boys. I quickly narrowed the pics down the most important. So I've ordered Kyle's first 6 months and am working on Beck's first 6 months. 
  2. Finally finish our laundry room once and for all. Haven't touched it yet.
  3. Clean out, organize, sell or throw away the items in our garage apartment. STARTED! Pat on the back please! I've sold quite a bit of old baby items... in fact, I made about $100 last week just selling items off our local Facebook Buy/Sell pages! Getting rid of two giant strollers that take up tons of room was a big relief!
  4. Meal planning. Ugh. Fail.
  5. Plant some colorful plants/flowers in our front beds. Nothing yet. The weather has been so hot/cold this winter that I've held off until we're really done with freezes. 
  6. Take a cooking class. Not yet
  7. Get going on the potty training with our youngest. Hahaha! This one is a doozy. He is does NOT want to stop wearing diapers. I've tried bribing with his favorite candy, I bought him super hero underwear, I've begged, I've pleaded. Nope. Not gonna do it right now. 
  8. Expand my health and wellness business. I'm so excited about this one! Several new families have committed to join our Mission and they are loving it! I so love helping others get their lives healthier!
I'm pretty proud of myself (and my husband, too)! We're starting off our 2014 pretty well!

How are you doing with your 2014 resolutions or to do lists??

Here are some of our most asked membership questions:

  • How much is it to renew each year?
  • Is there a minimum each month or year?
  • What is your return policy?
  • By joining as a member, does that make me a distributor?

  • There is no renewal fee.  It’s a lifetime membership and one time fee of $19.95  FREE for you with a qualifying order!
