Self-Care: When Time is of the Essence

Self-Care: When Time is of the Essence
After a few months of challenging times, it’s normal to feel overwhelmed and exhausted. Even though you can’t always take a break from your responsibilities, you can still find little ways to practice self-care. One evening, I decided to give myself a special treat and that meant breaking out my best oils! 


The "health" drink that changed my life

The "health" drink that changed my life
The turning point for me was when I realized that neglecting my health now would only make me feel worse later on down the road. I didn't want to be one of those people who is always complaining about their health problems and how they wished they had taken better care of themselves when they were younger. So I decided to give this juice a try and see what all the fuss was about. 

I'm so glad I did!



My body says put down the coffee... the creamer isn’t helping my gut anyway...

So I pick up the water.
It helps that I’ve been too lazy to make tea..

But this morning, after a lot of dairy products yesterday, I felt so sick.

And heavy.

My bra didn’t fit right... I have plenty to choose from, but when I am in my best shape, this one fits perfect... today it was just a little too snug.

I knew those size small t shirts I bought recently we’re not an option for my bloated belly today.

I grabbed a sweater. Knew I didn’t want to wear jeans. Leggings would only show off how bloated I feel.

I may feel bloated and like I gained back all of the weight I lost, but I still had a wardrobe win today.

The gray slacks.

The ones with little polka dots on them. I have a matching blazer.

My mom bought this suit for me almost 10 years ago.

The pants were tight when I opened them up on Christmas morning. But not so tight that I couldn’t wear them.

At least on my good days.

The days when I wasn’t bloated.
