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.

Energy to Burn!

They say that if your dog is overweight, YOU need more exercise.  Ain’t that the dang truth!

img_2274

This morning I woke up with energy to burn!  It’s July in Texas, which means nothing but scorching heat and humidity.  I woke up before the sun was set in the sky, strapped the dog to the leash and put on my tennis shoes.  We walked (and even ran!!  What?!) down the road a mile, then turned around and came back, all while rocking out to Pandora.

img_2280

Between the walking, running and dancing intervals, I’m sure I looked like a crazy lady with her little dog — but hey, at least I had fun burning those calories!

If you’ve been following, you know that I’ve gotten all my recent energy from the all-natural Plexus products.  If you’re sick and tired of feeling sick and tired, message me or visit my shop to learn more!

What if this could change everything?
It already is.

That Pink Drink, Though!

No more mid-day slump!
No more mid-day slump!

Let’s talk about Slim, baby!  Let’s talk about you and me!

If you’re thinking that this is just another weight loss gimmick, it’s not!  Slim does way more than just aid in weight loss.

Plexus Slim is the most popular product that Plexus has, and for good reason.  This little packet mixes with water and is to be consumed 15 – 30 minutes before eating.  Most people like to drink it before breakfast, but you can take it any time of day.

Once consumed, this little all-natural wonder drink immediately goes to work on maintaining normal blood sugar levels, as well as healthy cholesterol and lipid levels.

*Fun fact, Slim was originally created for people with diabetes as a natural alternative to managing blood sugar.

There are many key ingredients in the packet that help with a slew of health problems.  For instance: Slim contains Beet Root and Grape Skin Extract: beet root is a natural detoxifier and antioxidant that aids in maintaining healthy blood pressure and helps prevent heart disease.  Grape skin extract is a powerful antioxidant that also aids in heart health and lowers blood sugar.

Chromium and Garcinia Cambogia, two other key ingredients, have also been known to lower blood sugar levels, even out blood pressure and lower cholesterol.  Garcinia Cabogia helps boost serotonin, which alleviates symptoms of stress and depression.

One thing that I was shocked to see was the number of testimonies of people who have arthritis whose pain and discomfort were greatly alleviated because of the natural anti-inflammatory in the pink drink.  Samples are in the mail to my mother as we speak so she can tell me first hand if it helps with her arthritis.

And, of course, when your blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol are in great shape, you naturally feel better and have more energy!  Because of the energy boost this drink gives, you want to move more, which burns more fat… you see where this is going.  It has been the first consistent week that I’ve been dedicated to the product, and I’ve already shed a few pounds!

Whether you’re trying to lose weight, get off your medication, or just want to feel more energetic, please message me for more information!  Or click here to check out my Plexus office.
