We just returned from our annual youth camp. My husband and I are youth leaders at our church and so this year, we loaded up 16 teenagers, 6 chaperones and drove 6 hours to a cabin in the woods. We cooked a ton of food while there, so I knew I was going to be taking something for those crazy teenagers who love to digest any kind of food. Somehow, I knew I was going to need PEPCID®COMPLETE® this week — and boy was I right.

After next week, our summer youth schedule will slow way down and once again I will be able to focus on my workout plan. Because my husband and I are over our youth group at church, summer usually consists of tons of fundraising projects, summer trips, and more. Once it comes to an end, I pick up my headphones and my feet hit the pavement to start my workout up again.

This year — Best Buy and their Audio Fest will be helping me out!

For several months I have had some digestive issues going on. Things like cramping and bloating — even when it’s not my time of the month. I wasn’t for sure what to do about how I was feeling, but then I found out about ProbioSlim and was offered a sample to try, so I decided to give it a whirl to see if it would help how I was feeling.

Summer is one of my absolute favorite times of the year. Yes — it may be hot, and we totally sweat WAY too much, but for me, summer offers so much more than major heat waves. It’s during these months that I get to spend growing closer to all the teenagers in my life — including my own.

I have this amazing cheerleader in my life. My 16 year old daughter. She is truly a rock in my life and I could not imagine her not being there.

We have always encouraged her to be herself, and to not worry what everyone thinks about her. She dies her hair purple, she is in love with superheroes, and her family is her best friends.

I was compensated by SUDAFED REPLAY™ to share this information with you. All opinions listed however, are 100% my own.

I never had sinus issues until I gave birth the first time. The first time I was hit with a sinus headache, I thought my head was going to explode. In fact, my issue with my sinuses got SO bad, that many times, I had to stay home and rest when my husband and kids would go out to go to the park.

My daughter has been feeling really tired lately — even though she gets plenty of sleep. I was pretty sure it was her iron levels, so we decided to stop into our local Walgreen’s and pick up some iron pills for her. While we were there, I also decided to pick up some other vitamins and herbs we were out of that I usually take as well. There are 5 very important recommended vitamins and herbs that I take daily to make sure that I promote good health in myself.

I haven’t written a weight loss post in a few weeks. Not because I haven’t been trying to lose weight, but because I have been sick –literally. I looked at myself in the mirror one day and I realized just how horrible I was looking. My skin was all pasty, I was seriously bloated worse than I ever have been, and I was just disgusted. I could tell by the look of things that this was not weight gain but something worse going on. I knew right then and there I needed to make changes to my diet.

I think I am having wheat and gluten issues.
