Candida- How to Eliminate Overgrowth

Unless you have had your head in the sand during the last year then you have heard of Candida. While the word is hard to pronounce understanding and facts around this naturally occurring yeast in our bodies seems to be even more difficult to sort through. So lets chat on the basics of figuring out what candida is, checking for it, and ultimately fixing and healing you gut if you have an overgrowth.     First off, what is Candida? Candida is an pathogenic yeast that is a part of our gut flora. It is just one of the trillions…

My Favorite Fat Burning HIIT workouts

I LOVE HIIT workouts. Seriously. Its a problem, but a good problem to have.

HIIT will help melt the fat off your body and keep your body burning those calories for long after the workout is done. If you are just getting started on your fitness journey be sure to start by tracking your progress with photos and measurements.   1…

Arizona Bighorn Sheep Hunt

For those hunters out there you know the feeling of having a dream to hunt a bighorn sheep. My dad put in for 36 years before his fate changed and he was drawn for a bighorn sheep hunt  in unit 24B in Arizona. Growing up I knew the importance of this hunt and how hard it was to get this tag. My youth had many hours spent sitting on the phone waiting to hear draw result for my dad. Ah the days of yore.  In Arizona these hunts are coveted. There was one other hunter in his unit, and one…

20 Toddler Outfits Prepped in 30 minutes

I am  sucker for prepping. Anything I can prep ahead of time I do. This comes partially from my type A personality and partially from being a single mom to two babies for a  year while the military took hubby away. That year taught me a lot about myself and ways to organize my life to make everything easier. One big thing for me was kids clothes, more specifically for my daughter, since my son is just a shirt and jeans. Its amazing to me how much clothes little girls have (thanks to Grammies and aunties) its just all so…

My Experiance with Le Tote

Like many of you I have been seeing Le Tote every where lately, and I finally decided to give it a shot. What drew my attention to this service over others was the option to pick my own pieces to be sent to me. I have tried Stich Fix before and that was my one sticking point. I loved the idea of a stylist picking  for me but I have a pretty specific style and some times the stylist got it, other times they didn’t, and when they did they sent me clothes that were to expensive for…

4 Steps of Goal Setting to Design Your Life

Its that time of year. The time to make resolutions, goals, and to think about your years past and the year to come. Reflecting on choices made and how you would like to focus your year is a brilliant idea. Personally I am a planning addict. I love my Living Well planner, To Do lists, and thinking about goals and life mottos. My husband often tells me how like “Monica” I am. (get the FRIENDS reference there?) While I love my short term goals and focused to do lists to get me through the week or weekend with…

Pre-Scouting: Tips and Tricks for Scouting Your Hunt

My house is full of love, people, animals, and mounts. Oh yes the mounts. We have four adults who all hunt living in this home and the beautiful reminders of the memories, work, and food supplied during those trips all over our home. Since this blog is also about our hunting adventures (and mine have been few and far between since my marathon 4 years of making, birthing, and keeping babies alive) I recruited my husband to help others who may be new to this on the best way to scout for a hunt. These tips are based on his…

Finish the Year Strong

The holidays are upon us. Halloweens candy filled sugar craze is over. The biggest feasting day of the year just came to a close. Christmas cookies, holiday parties, office treats, and Christmas dinner are here. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to be a statistic. The statistic that people gain 5 lbs every year during the holiday season, that they never loose. Not good! My plan to combat all this is not to forgo the yummy treats… but to eat in small portion sizes and work out. HARD!   Figuring out the…
