My Top Ways to Get Your Life on Track in 2016


I know that the New Year doesn’t have to be the time when you start examining your life. I’m not one for making resolutions anymore, but I do like to reflect and think about the year ahead. January is a useful time to at least think about where you would like to end up by December. A lot of people decide that this year they want to turn their life around. Some will achieve their goals and some won’t, but it’s up to you if you choose to set any. I admire anyone who wants to better themselves, however they want to do it. Change is hard, though, and you might not know where to start. Here are some of my tips for getting your life back on a path you want to be on.

Practice Willpower

Sometimes when you want to change your life, it’s because you feel like you’re stuck in a rut. You can get too lazy, whether you’re not doing something you should or doing something too much. It’s so hard to have the willpower to stick to the promises you make yourself – that’s why I don’t make resolutions anymore! If you do want to have the discipline to stop eating sugar or to socialize more often, you need to practice. Willpower won’t just come to you naturally if you don’t stretch and exercise it. Instead of jumping into big things like exercising five times a week, start with small tasks like getting in your first workout.

Deal with Bad Habits and Addictions

Having an addiction or a bad habit can affect your life in massive ways. You might think that you’re fine, but it could be preventing you from doing lots of things. Addictions come in different forms and don’t always take the shape of a dependence on alcohol or drugs. However, if you do think you have a problem with either, the best solution is often a drug or alcohol rehab. Sometimes you might notice that you have been relying on alcohol too much and have the ability to stop alone. This can be true for other addictions and bad habits too, but you need the willpower to give up. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t get help and support from other people too.

Get Rid of Negative Influences

Not everyone realizes how much the negative people in their life can affect them. Or they might know but feel obligated to keep them around. But many people decide that life isn’t worth wasting on people who don’t support you. If you have people in your life who do nothing but make you feel bad about yourself, why should you let them stick around? If you want to make contact with the minimal or cut them off completely, it’s up to you who you allow in your life. There’s no time to waste on anyone who doesn’t have your best interests in mind at all times.

I know it’s not easy to make significant changes in your life. But if you want things to change, you’re the only one who can do it.

Happy New Year! Here’s to a New You!

IMG_4186Every year on January 1st, I sit and contemplate what the new year will bring. Will I start a new career? Will I move this year? Will I take a beach vacation (that is a definite yes!) Will I win the lottery? (probably not, I don’t play the lottery…) Will I lose weight this year? That is the ultimate. I don’t make resolutions any more. I often would end up frustrated and disappointed by the middle of January, thinking I’m a grand failure. That’s no fun! Instead, I just think about what might happen. I hope for the best.

IMG_4187Weight loss is something I always hope to achieve. I’ve been overweight for all of my adult life. I have exercised, I’ve watched my food intake. I’ve done both at the same time. I just don’t lose weight easily. I don’t always get to the gym, so I try to find ways to do my workouts at home.

In my quest to find the perfect (as in easy) in home work out, I found
Fe Fit Women’s 90 Day Workout
. Fe Fit Women’s 90 Day Workout is an adaptable workout plan for all abilities that takes you through 90 days of life-changing physical fitness.

The DVDS are not the kind your mother used to do. No, they aren’t the ones you may have done in the 80’s or even 90’s. They are fun and trendy. They burn fat and create shape. The instructor is high-energy and empowering. You will lose weight, tone up and feel more attractive and sexier than ever. (Those endorphins work wonders on your mood, trust me. I have fibromyalgia and after a few work outs, my mood is elevated to new levels!). In 13 weeks, you will be on your way to a new you!

You work out only 3 days a week, in 30 minutes or less, So this is a low commitment program, which is great for busy people like you and me. You know who you are, you work all day and come home wanting to collapse, only to play with the kids for a little while dinner is cooking. Put your DVD in and work out during that 30 min and it’s done for the day! Set your alarm for 30 minutes early and do it before the day even starts! It’s possible, I promise!

This program comes with 7 fun fitness genres. There is a cardio circuit, core, lower body, upper body, total body toning, barre and stretch flow exercises.

This kit comes with 8 discs featuring 28 unique fitness videos, flexible workout calendars and tools for measuring and tracking your success!

Dinosaur Toys….They aren’t just for Boys

imageI was always that parent that encouraged my daughters to play with matchbox cars and my son to play with dolls and the kitchen set. I don’t think toys have a gender role. If my child wants to play with a toy, and it’s safe, why not? I have encouraged politeness and respectfulness in their play. Ask please and thank you. I also attempt to have them clean up after themselves. I’ve raised three to adulthood and I’m still not sure they have accomplished that one!

imageMy youngest enjoys playing with all types of toys, from trucks and cars, to barbies and animals. She has a big interest in dinosaurs right now. I’m sure this interest will pass, but for now I’m happy to encourage it, because by playing with dinosaur toys, she can learn that they aren’t the scary monsters that movies want us to believe. We were able to get some fun books out off the library on dinosaurs and read about the different types that we played with! That was so cool for both of us!

imageThese dinosaur toys, by Kids Imaginative, come in blue, pink, yellow, green, brown, silver, red, and purple. They are 5 to 7 inches long and are of the following dinosaurs: T-Rex, Tegosaurus, Triceratops, Apatosaurus, Ceratosaurus, Spinosaurus, Tyrannosaurus, Pachycephalosaurus, Parasaurolophus, Brachiosaurus, Styracosaurus, Velociraptor, and Euoplocephalus.

What is your opinion on gender neutral toys?

My daughter and I received a set of these dinosaur toys free to review.

Wine Aerator Review

0d918241eec3fb9d43100c8db01e333a7372c1faI enjoy a good glass of wine in the evenings. Sometimes I have had a bottle that was a little more bitter than others. You know the kind! The ones that you take a sip and go ewwww!!! Well, I found a wine aerator that seems to help with that!


This wonderful aerator fits into the bottle like a wine stopper. It doesn’t require two hands to use, you just pour the wine as usual! The wine swirls through the aerator and it gives it a full bodied flavor and it is less bitter! It is wonderful! I liked it so much I gave one as a gift! It comes in this really awesome box!


Check it out for yourself and let me know what you think!

My Personal Experience with Coobie Bras and Violet Love Headbands!

IMG_4126I am thrilled to try out a coobie bra and give you my personal opinion about this product! I had heard about these bras, but being plus sized and large breasted, I was skeptical and didn’t want to spend the money to try these, especially when I saw thin models wearing them in the ads! They come in plus sizes, but you know, there’s plus then there’s my size. Really,

This is the bra I received, but this is the bra on the thin model, you are not going to see a photo of me in the bra.


I got my bra in the mail and looked at it’s size and thought, eh, it’s not gonna fit. The headband is cute, it will fit. Also, my daughter likes it, so that’s a plus. I thought, on a whim, I’ll try the bra, if it didn’t fit, I’d pass it on to my oldest daughter, she could wear it.

FullSizeRender (5)

I have a “frozen shoulder” which makes putting on a regular bra impossible, without help. I put my coobie bra on, without assistance. It FIT. Yes, it fit. It fit! I was thrilled. It is comfortable! It actually feels supportive! I decided to wear it throughout the day and see what happened. I asked my family, can you tell I’m wearing a different bra? Nope, nobody could tell. I wore it to the store, minimal bounce. NO discomfort. No digging into my shoulders, no tugging at my back. It was amazing!

It comes with modesty pads if you want them, but they can be removed if you want and should be for washing.

I also received a Violet Love headband. What can I tell you about this headband? It can be worn in so many ways! I love it! I wore it as a head wrap, a pony tail holder, a headband, and there are many other ways. My 9 year old daughter took it and claimed it as her own. It is the softest headband I’ve seen (and felt) and it is the only one I’ve owned that doesn’t slip off my head. It actually stays put! I don’t know how? It just does! I’m beyond thrilled with this headband!


If you are in the market for a very comfortable bra or headband, I highly recommend these. There is a current promotion: Save 30% on any order of Coobie Seamless Bras or Violet Love Headbands at and using promotion code: USFG30
