With 2015 right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about goals and visions we have for our lives. Notice I did not say resolutions? That word means nothing to me — not anymore. I am setting goals for the visions I have of a new and improved me — and you should set goals for the visions you have of the new and improved you. There are many things that you can do, but there are 5 for sure that you can do to help you kickstart 2015.

A juicer is an excellent addition to any kitchen; it’s great to be able to produce fresh fruit juices for a healthy drink. Children love the different color juices, and it can be a lot easier to get them to drink juice than it is to persuade them to eat the actual fruit.

There is the question of what you can actually put into a juicer though. Can you include the whole fruit, or are their things you need to omit?

I try to walk every single day. When I do, I love listening to my music, but I hate carrying my phone. I tried just putting in the band of my yoga pants, but it doesn’t stay very well and it falls and goes down my leg. I wanted something that would hold my phone in place, so I was glad to find out about the iArrow Sport Armband for the iPhone 5.

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central for CRYSTAL LIGHT. I received a gift card to purchase CRYSTAL LIGHT products to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

I am a water drinker by nature. I gave up soda several years ago, and now, water and coffee are my only two drinks of choice. While most of the time I enjoy just a straight glass of water, I also love to drink flavored water. One way that I love flavoring my water is with Crystal Light Dink Pouches. Here are 5 ways to drink more water — and pay attention to how I make my water MORE flavorful — which makes it a lot easier to drink!

“The LifeStraw® Go and information have been provided by Vestergaard.” 

Earlier this year, we took our youth group to Gatlinburg, Tennessee. While there we went to a fresh spring and played until the kids couldn’t play anymore. The water was rushing around and the kids drank from the water. However, that’s not always the case with rivers and such.

Imagine trying to find safe drinking water when there is none available or imagine living in a country where clean water is merely a dream. LifeStraw Go by Vestergaard has developed a reusable water bottle that gives you the assurance of safe drinking water no matter your location.

I’m here to tell you about a wonderful alternative to get your kids to take their vitamins. It’s almost like eating a Pixie Stick! This post has been compensated by alternaVites, but all opinions remain my own.

I wish when my kids were little, we would have had alternaVites. I never could get my kids to take those chewable vitamins. They would put them in their mouths, and almost immediately spit them out. Now — I never have to worry about that again!

My church and I adopted an orphanage in Haiti several years ago. Each family has chosen one child from this orphanage to provide food, clothing, school supplies, immunizations, and more. I enjoy getting pictures from the missionaries that go over there, showing how the little boy our family adopted is getting along, and how much he appreciates what we send him. Right now, though, he is a very sick little boy — so I am doing everything I can to help out.

I have been off again and on again about my healthy choices and trying to lose weight. In fact, I just recently got back on the band wagon and started walking every day. It makes me feel SO much better about myself. What’s even better though, is the new program that I discovered because I am a Walgreens Balance Rewards Member.

The other night, my husband and I decided to grill out and have steaks and shrimp. We have been going out to eat almost every night before that for almost two weeks, so we were both dying for a delicious home cooked meal.

Now — I don’t know about you, but grilled food just does something to my digestive system. My stomach gets all gurgly, and the bloating begins. Before too long — you know what can happen.

As a homeschool family, my daughter does most of her school work on the computer. To top that off, she has an iPhone and spends quite a lot of time staring at the screen texting her friends. To say that she is on an electronic device for most of the day  would be a very true statement. Because of that, she deals with digital eye strain all the time.
