My Essential Oils



These are some oils I have discovered in the past year that are now staples in my home.  Here is a list of my essential oils.




Some uses for rose oil are preventing infections in wounds, improving skin texture, stimulates menstruation, strengthens hair and gums and cures infections. I started using it because I was curious to see if it could help heal some scratches on my leg and tighten the skin underneath my eye. It has helped to tighten the skin under my eye and within days of starting to use it, it started healing the scratches on my leg. Nothing else worked.  It also has a lovely scent, which automatically boosts my mood.




Evening primrose oil-I use it for peri-menopausal symptoms like breast tenderness and hot flashes. It’s also used for acne.  I haven’t noticed much of a change in my skin, but it has helped with breast tenderness and the hot flashes. Evening primrose has essential fatty acids or EFAs which is great in relieving inflammation in the joints and dry skin and hair.




Tea Tree Oil- I originally started using the tea tree oil for acne.  My skin started breaking out in these horrible little bumps. Months later I can’t see that it has made much difference. Then my daughter got lice.  I started using it in her hair to get rid of them and it was a success. Knock on many pieces of wood.  I still use it even after getting rid of the lice to keep them away.  I mix it with coconut oil. I put the mixture in her hair a couple of times a week.


Coconut oil-I started using coconut oil to moisturize my skin and hair. I like using organic coconut oil.  It absorbs into the skin beautifully and keeps it moisturized for hours.  It helped get rid of the lice from my daughters hair. I use it on the kids’ hair weekly.  I also mix it with rose oil and use that as a deodorant.  It lasts for at least 24 hours. Coconut oil is also good for raising your metabolism.

I cannot imagine not having these oils in my home now. Results may vary and the opinions are completely my own. Please consult with a health care professional before starting any supplementation program

BFH Update: Healthy & Lean 2015


Feeling more serene
Ok, feeling better about things.  Decided to take my destiny into my own hands instead of waiting for someone to discover my talent. Trying to learn as much as I can about social media marketing.  I've signed up for courses and webinars. Will try to step out of my comfort zone more.  Part of being healthy is not just physical health, but also mental health.  I have to do what makes me happy.  This year I will do more for myself.  This is the year of self-care. 

I have been continuing with my workouts and eating as clean as possible.  I haven't been doing as much strength training as I should.  I want to try for 3 strength training workouts a week.  Also walking 10,000 steps a day.

Looking forward to next month when I start the 30 Day Meditation Challenge.  And don't forget there will be a free Menopause Fitness & Nutrition Webinar from the Go Fit Gals on January 27th.

Recipe of the week comes from Girl Makes Food and it's White Bean Chili. Great chili to make for Super Bowl Sunday too! It's gluten-free and vegan, but it also sticks to your ribs.

Please feel free to connect me with on, Pinterest, on Twitter as GFGKelly or Dancingvalentin, Facebook or on this blog. I'm finally on Instagram! No photos yet, but I hope to get that going soon;-)

Feeling Frustrated


Liz Lemon is my spirit animal and expresses my frustration perfectly!

Well this update will be more of a vent.  We have settled in Toronto and things are ok.  I've been trying to eat clean and work out at least five days a week.  I even tried out a new weight loss app.  It's called Lose Weight Without Dieting. The review for it is on my other blog and you can find it here.

My frustration is not with my weight or fitness journey,but with finding employment.  I send out resumes and hear crickets.  I'm so frustrated I want to just eat a whole pizza and cake every day, but I haven't succumbed, yet.  I'm getting scared that I may never work again. My last job in Chicago wasn't in my field of social services, but it was part-time and I could work it around the kids' schedule. 

Yep, I just want to crawl into bed and eat.
I haven't had a full-time job since 2005.  That's when we moved to England for two years.  When we returned to Chicago I searched for four years for another full-time job in social services. Couldn't find anything and ended up working part-time. At least I had that. In Vancouver I was able to volunteer at a great place and I was in charge of a program when the program coodinator would go on holiday. It felt great to work even though I wasn't getting paid much for it.

I want to get into social media. I have only the several years experience managing my own social media accounts.  That experience doesn't count I guess. How can I get experience if no one will give me a chance?! "I'm smart!"(in my best Fredo voice)



All this to say is that every day I feel like just throwing up my hands and saying that being a stay-at-mom is my career now, but sorry it's not enough. I want my own income and I want to contribute something to society.

Thanks for letting me vent. I will try to remain positive and carry on. I hope that in future posts I can get back to updating you on my fitness journey. Please feel free to connect me with on, Pinterest, on Twitter as GFGKelly or Dancingvalentin, Facebook or on this blog.

Happy 2015!




Hope this year has been good to you so far! At the beginning of the year there are so many plans I want to follow. Not interested in losing pounds anymore.  Just want to be healthy and lean. I have decided that starting on Friday January 9th I will begin the Go Fit Gals 3 Day Reset. Always a good start to a new plan. It's an excellent detox. You can read about my results from the last time I did the 3 Day Reset here. After that I will begin their Go-Fit 21 Plan.

I will do their workouts, but I've been enjoying the workouts from Millionaire Hoy.  I found him on Youtube one day when I was looking for fat burning workouts. His workouts are challenging and fun.  Check out his Youtube page here.

Looking forward to beginning my new plan. 

Recipe for the week is from POPSUGAR Fitness. It's a Slow Cooker Coconut Chickpea Curry. Delicious and filling when you need some comfort food on the cold winter evenings. The recipe is vegan and gluten-free.

Merry Christmas From Beauty, Fitness & Health...Oh My!






Wishing all of my readers a happy Christmas!  Please enjoy this time with friends and family!






Update





Brief update on me the past couple of weeks. I finished Go-Fit 21.  I tried to follow the diet as closely as possible, but I had to bake a ton of Christmas cookies. Oh sweetness at last you always find me.  I probably would have lost more if I didn't eat those darn Christmas cookies! The first week I had difficulty getting the workouts in but after that it was easier.  ]I look a bit leaner and feel a little stronger. So that's great!  I will try it again at the beginning of the year.

Taking a break and enjoying all of the time with my family and some goodies. If you are looking for a healthy recipe here's one for your Holiday table. A healthy, delicious stuffing recipe right here!
