Super Sweaty Treadmill, Arms and Abs Workout

Happy Friday!  I am so glad it is the weekend and December 1st.  I have all my holiday decorations up and I am feeling festive.  

This week I changed up my workouts a bit and boy am I feeling it. I added in an additional run/weights day using the workout below.  I tried to make it similar to an Orangetheory workout just not using the rowing machine.   It was AWESOME and I am super sore.

If you need something for those sore muscles you need to try using all natural essential oils none of that junk in the stuff you can buy at the store.  I made a muscle rub and it totally did the trick.  Give it a try after this workout!  Here is the recipe:

Friday Faves: The Squatty Potty and DIY Poo Spray

Happy Friday!  I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and got to enjoy the yummy food and festivities.  Is anyone else out there shopping on Black Friday?  My mom and I have a tradition and we go every year. It’s fun to hang out and get some awesome deals.  Although shopping is not my favorite I still like to go.  

Today’s Friday fave may be a little TMI for some of you but I just have to share it.  I had been contemplating getting a Squatty Potty since I saw it on Shark Tank years ago.  I finally got one a few months ago and I love it!!!!  If you are not familiar with the Squatty Potty check out this hilarious commercial.  It pretty much explains how it works in a humorous way.  By the way I got mine at Costco!  Great deal!

I will spare you all the details but if you have ever dealt with constipation you need this in your life.  It works people!!!  

As long as we are on the subject you also need this DIY Poo Spray to go with your squatty potty.  Get rid of those aerosol sprays for a more natural cleaner version.  Put this in your bathroom and people will be glad you did!  

DIY Poo Spray Recipe DIY poo spray

  • 2 Teaspoon Rubbing Alcohol
  • 20-30 Drops Essential Oils (I like orange, lemon, and lavender) 
  • Distilled Water

Add essential oils and rubbing alcohol to a 4oz glass spray bottle.  Fill the remainder with distilled water.  Spray to freshen the room or spray in the toilet before you go.

I only use Young Living Essential Oils.  They are the best!  

I hope you guys enjoy the holiday weekend.  I would love to hear your thoughts on the squatty potty!  Have a great weekend!

Friday Faves! My Favorite Essential Oils and Uses

Happy Friday!!!!!  I hope you guys had a great week.  It is officially Thanksgiving break for me and I am so ready.  For my Friday Faves I wanted to focus on how I use essential oils.  I have used Young Living Essential Oils for a few years now.  I get a lot of questions from people about how I use them so I thought I would share the details  in my Friday Faves post.  First I only use Young Living Oils.  They are by far my favorite.  I have tried others but those are sub par!  Just being honest.

Here are my most commonly used oils in my house and how I normally use them.  This is just the basics, there are so many more uses I need to try.  

essential oils

Purification:  I add a few drops into my smelly workout laundry with a bit of baking soda and/or vinegar.  This totally helps with the stink!  

Lavender and Cedar wood:  I like to diffuse one of these in my bedroom at night.  Lately my daughter has wanted to have a diffuser in her room and this is what I put in.  

Valor:  I use this one daily to help with any anxious feelings I have.  Being a mom, wife and teacher can cause some anxiety and this helps!  Plus I really love the smell.  It’s my natural perfume.  

Essential OilsPeppermint:  Headaches, Tummy Aches, and Energy!  If I feel a headache coming on I rub a bit on my temples.  It also helps with tummy troubles.  You can rub it on the tummy with coconut oil  or put a bit in your water.  I also use it pre-workout by putting some on my wrist or workout towel for an energy boost!  

Digize:  Tummy Troubles!  Just the other day my younger daughter had a tummy ache.  I rubbed this on her tummy with coconut oil.  Worked like a charm.  I also find it can help with bloating.  

Stress Away:  For stress of course!  I rub it on my wrists or diffuse as needed.  And it smells so good.  The hubby is currently trying this one! 

Thieves:  This is another popular one for immunity.  I usually diffuse it or rub it on my feet when I feel the yucky stuff coming on in our house.  Or at school!  

Tea Tree:  Acne and Athlete’s Foot.  I have been trying tea tree oil on my older daughter for blemishes (more to come on that) and it is great for athletes foot too.  

Wow I didn’t realize I used that many oils!!!!  Most of those are empty bottles!  I need a refill! 

Those are my most frequently used oils.  However, I do have to say that I also love lemon, orange,  and eucalyptus in my diffuser.  

I thought I would also mention that I just recently signed up as a Young Living distributor after taking some time off.  I realized that I was out of most of my favorite oils and I wanted to purchase a new kit with the new Aria diffuser (a kit is by the way the best way to get a ton of oils)!  If you would like more information on ordering an oil starter kit or how you can get more information on oils and Young Living feel free to email me at 4livingthewrightway@gmail.com.  I would love to chat with you more.  

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!  I am ready for a little break!
