All About Those Plants

plant
Grandma teaching Bruce about the awesomeness of plants. As much as you can teach a 1 1/2 year old.

Let’s talk about plants for a minute.

Plexus (which is an amazing natural health and wellness company) products are natural, mineral and plant-based products.  If you’ve watched My Why video, you’ll know that even I was a skeptic of these products at first (for TWO YEARS!). I’m all about being natural, but when it comes to RESULTS, I was a huge skeptic that natural products would even come close to doing what prescribed medications do. I mean… they’re plants.

But then I had a thought the other morning. If you eat the wrong plants or berries, they can kill you. ACTUALLY KILL YOU. A tiny berry! (Anyone read “Into The Wild?) If you touch the wrong plant, it can spread horrible, itchy hives all over your body like wildfire. (Ever get poison ivy or poison oak as a kid?) Just by TOUCHING the plant! Coffee, which comes from a berry, has the power to give us energy and keep us up all night if we drink it too late.

We know all of this to be true, so why do we have such a hard time believing that the opposite can be true, too? Why do we have a hard time believing that plants could actually bring us back to life?  Or at least help get our body on the right track again!  For example: beet root is a natural detoxifier and antioxidant that aids in maintaining healthy blood pressure and helps prevent heart disease (found in Plexus Slim).  Grape skin extract is a powerful antioxidant that also aids in heart health and lowers blood sugar (also found in the Slim).  Ahiflower oil is used in the Plexus MegaX softgel, which supplies your body with amazing Omegas.  Omegas are super important for both brain and cardiovascular health, and can also aid in stress reduction and relaxation.

There are so many more examples that I could recite after I started doing some research, but my point is this – for all the skeptics out there (I was one for a loooong time!), you should definitely give plants a shot.  Thankfully, Plexus has done the research and science and has formulated life-changing products that can help with an entire slew of health issues.  Plexus does not claim to “cure” anything, but I can tell you from my personal experience, and from those who have given Plexus a shot, these products have amazing BENEFITS.  Medications have side-effects (you just need to listen to a pharmaceutical commercial, and most likely more than half of it is the list of the harmful things that could possibly happen), and I like to say that Plexus has benefits.  You want to lose weight? So many of the products have that benefit – but it first stems from correcting the root problem of unbalanced blood sugar levels, cholesterol levels and poor gut health.  The products are working to naturally balance your body, and once your body is consistently balanced, the benefits include more energy and possible weight loss.  I’ve experienced both of these benefits and a lot more.

It’s OK if you think that maybe Plexus is a bunch of natural hooey, but then again – what if this changes everything for you?  And with a 60-day money back guarantee, what’s there to lose?  Message me for more info!

Pre-Wedding Festivities

August has been a total whirlwind!

We kicked off the month by having a bridal shower here in Texas with some close friends.  We walked into our friend’s house and were welcomed by a “Here Come the Brides” banner, balloons, and delicious homemade food.  My favorite: the cupcakes with natural edible lavender in the cake and in the frosting.  We were super happy to be able to spend the day with great friends from all over, and for Mekia and Paige who took time out of their busy schedules to make this day extra special.

Afterwards, we came back to our apartment and Renee cooked a seriously delicious Korean meal.

The following weekend we headed up to Michigan for some wedding festivities!  On Friday, a handful of close friends got together and we hit some local breweries around Kalamazoo for my bachelorette party.  We ate a seriously delicious dinner at Gonzo’s Biggdogg Brewing Company, where my friend is head chef and GM, and then we headed back to a friend’s house to have a Pure Romance Party hosted by another amazing and passionate friend.  My ridiculously talented sister-in-law surprised us all by making what she calls “Paint a Pussy” cookies!  It was pure perfection.

The next day was our bridal shower/my birthday!  This was a chance for us to celebrate our wedding with our loves in Michigan who won’t be able to attend the wedding in Texas.  I felt so loved and blessed that so many people came, and it made my birthday that much sweeter.  The theme was “Adventure Awaits,” and so much thought, help, time and beauty went into making this day so so special.  I was overwhelmed and humbled at the thoughtfulness of it all, and my thank you notes just don’t do my feelings justice.

I of course LOVED seeing my little nephew and chasing him all over the house. Miss this baby all the time.

And to top it all off, my mother decided that she loves the Plexus products she’s taking so much that she decided to become an ambassador!  I’m so happy that she’s feeling better and loves the natural products.  When you’re feeling great and you find something that works, you want to share it with everyone!  Welcome to the team, Mom!!!

Super Tired?

Quick thought from Melissa Eickenhorst:

“How does society teach us to make extra money?
• A nurse takes extra shifts.
• A police officer works through the night.
• A teacher tutors after teaching all day.
• A hairdresser books more clients.
• A graphic designer takes on freelance clients.
• A single mom works a second job.
• A father works overtime.
All of these ways involve spending more time AWAY from your family and friends. Isn’t the goal to spend more time WITH the ones you love?”
I was able to quit my third job because of the awesome opportunities with Plexus. Now I get to sleep in every weekend morning, wake up with my fiancé and FaceTime with my family in Michigan. ❤️

Freedom Friday

img_2305-1Just wanted to share some happiness & blessings in my life recently!

As you may have read, I started taking Plexus products recently, and I loooove them.  I have way more energy, I’m super motivated, and I dropped 5 lbs. in a week (thank you, TriPlex Combo!).  Since I saw such a difference in such a short time, I decided to share the love of the products and become an ambassador.  Already, just by sharing how these products have shaped my life, people have been interested and eager to try the products for themselves  (and with a 60 day money back guarantee, why not give it a shot?!).

On top of feeling excited to hear how others like the products, here’s where my Freedom Friday comes into play: I have been able to quit my job at Starbucks.  

I was working at Starbucks only one day a week, which gave my income a little boost each paycheck — something I needed to pay a bill or two.  But now, because of the sheer awesomeness of the products and my team, I’ve been able to quit that job and am no longer required to get up at 3:30AM on Saturdays!

It’s a small victory, but it’s making a big difference in my life.  More time relaxing with my fiance on a weekend morning after a long week makes me happy.  I can’t wait to see where this takes us!

If you want to quit your second or third job, please feel free to ask me any questions you have!  My end goal is to be able to work Plexus from home and raise my family — a goal I’ve seen reached and I know is totally obtainable.

Detoxify Your Beautiful Insides

img_2291

I have been on some diets, let me tell you.  The cabbage soup diet, the shake meal-replacement diet, this Chinese medicine diet (which was BY FAR the worst), etc. etc. etc. And here I am, years later, after trying all of these fad diets, and STILL trying to drop some weight.  We all know the fluctuation game: lose 20 lbs. with this or that diet, but eventually gain it all back PLUS more over time.  These fad diets don’t work because they’re not sustainable! Are you really going to replace one meal out of your day, every single day, for the rest of your life, with a shake?  Probably not.

But would you take natural products filled with vitamins each day to help you lose weight in a sustainable way, PLUS detoxify the waste and toxins in your body?  No meal replacements, no restrictions — just vitamins.  Ummmm heck yes!

With Plexus, my favorite combination of products is the Tri-Plex Combo.  Tri-Plex features Slim (which I posted about here), along with Bio Cleanse and ProBio 5.
Bio Cleanse

Bio Cleanse helps clean your gastrointestinal tract (which stores all of the waste and toxins in your body that makes you feel sluggish), and it promotes regular digestive health.  It has 95% of your daily magnesium value, which contributes to healthy muscle and nerve function, blood glucose control and blood pressure regulation.

ProBio5While you’re cleaning out the toxins in your body with the Bio Cleanse, you’re then replacing the bad stuff with your ProBio 5, which is a powerful probiotic that aids in regular digestive health and promotes a health immune system.

When you clean out the toxins that make you feel sluggish and bloated, your weight will drop and you will have more energy!  You will feel the results of the Tri-Plex combo. right away, and you will be able to visually see the results soon after.

No more fad diets that leave us feeling grumpy and lacking!  Visit my website here to check out all of the products and different combinations that will make a difference in your life.
