Some Neat Info

First, head over to myΒ  InstagramΒ  to get a chance to win a sample of my fave drink!! Happening later today!

Now for some things I am learning about!!

Clinical dietician Jamie Withrow said, “Sugar cravings are rarely a simple lack of will power. Usually there is a physical reason they [people] are craving sugar. Yeast overgrowth.”

Did you know that a sign of a healthy gut, is little to no sugar cravings??!! I didn’t πŸ™‚ I also know my gut “digestive area” still has room to improve πŸ™‚

We all have bad bacteria that can multiply in our gut due to stress, sugar, medications, etc.

Candida is a nasty fungus that can result from yeast overgrowth. It disturbs metabolism, and makes us crave sweets. Look it up!! πŸ™‚

Jessica Hoogendoorn, Certified Nutritional Counselor says, “Think of your gut like a walled castle, a fortress. If it is sealed like it’s supposed to be, then it keeps toxins out, they go from the gut to the liver, and the liver filters the junk and sends it OUT and we are healthy πŸ™‚

Sadly, today, there are so many folks suffering from “Leaky gut”, and all the things that go with it, and that is why there are so many health conditions. I am really fascinated by this! πŸ™‚ Who knew how intricately our bodies are created!! Our brain is even connected to our gut! Did you know the gut has been called “THE SECOND BRAIN”?? God created us so wonderfully!!

Did you know your gut can influence your mood? πŸ™‚ It is estimated that 90% of the body’s serotonin is produced in the digestive tract. Serotonin can affect mood, sleep ,etc.

Ok, I probably have bored some of you, so I’ll stop for today πŸ™‚

But health is something I love to learn about, and help others with, and it has become a passion of mine!! πŸ™‚

Just this past week, a busy homeschooling momma friend who is trying out my fave products, sent me a message that she has fewer cravings for caffeine and sugar, more energy, lighter and less painful cycle, and feels great. I love getting messages like that!! And it is why I keep sharing πŸ™‚

Happy Wednesday, friends!!

Harvest Wife

*Edit…

I am changing my title, because I was made aware that my title may be hurtful for those truly in the trenches of being a widow. I truly apologize for that!

It’s Saturday night, 9:34 pm. I sit here typing, the children are watching “The Skit Guys”, but are headed to bed soon! One of them was up before 4 am, another up before 5:30 am, and the other was on baby brother duty since 4 am. Which means interrupted sleep πŸ˜‰Β  The tractor and manure spreader keep buzzing by the house, and will stop sometime before midnight, or when the farmer gets too tired πŸ™‚

I’ve milked twice today, did laundry, cleaned the living room, settled fights, took a power nap while getting baby and his bigger sis down for a nap, washed my kitchen floor, baked cookies, lost my temper, listened to motivational speakers, folded laundry. Don’t you love all those details I just listed? πŸ™‚ Really, what is the deal? We all did stuff today, but didn’t have to tell everyone. Right???Β  But I felt like it, and it’s my blog, so there you go! Chuckle, chuckle πŸ™‚

Ok sorry friends! I may have been feeling a tad snarky. I was baking cookies after 8pm on a Saturday night, and wondering what all the fun, exciting people were doing πŸ™‚

Honestly, I don’t mind being home on a Saturday night! But right now, I refer to myself as the “Harvest widow” (will be more careful with my words, and from now on, say “Harvest wife”), and I am so ready to have a day of rest tomorrow!!

Harvest is in full swing, and with the hubby being gone with the custom crew every day, sometimes half the night, my hands are full πŸ™‚

I decided to share a few photos of harvest 2017!!This was a day I ran lunch to my man, and took a quick ride with him πŸ™‚ This church was right beside a field the crew was in, one night when I ran supper to him . I loved how peaceful it looked!Stopping for a quick bite!The little stinker πŸ™‚I am always glad when this time of year is over! So much equipment, and tired men, often in a hurry.

I pray for safety for all!! This year the crop is bountiful, and we are thankful for that!! I hope you all have a good ending to your weekend!! πŸ™‚

I love a deal!

#Momlife

Can we just have a moment of silence for all the AMAZING moms out there!!?

If you are a mom,Β  go ahead and pat yourself on the back!!! πŸ™‚

Me. I have had to look at myself lately, and see that I need to improve in so many ways!

You know, I realized something tonight as it neared the end of the day. I sadly did a whole lot of hollering at my kiddos lately 😦 You know, you tell them to do something, they ignore, you repeat, still act like they did not hear. And then the temperature rises in me. So I realize that this is partly my fault. They should be trained so well, they immediately listen to me the 1st time I talk. But this is something I struggle to nail down. Do you all have tips?

At the end of the day, I just want them to GO.TO.BED!!!!!! To hear the sweet sound of nothing but a running brook, courtesy of our noise machine πŸ™‚

I should probably master the art of counting to 10 πŸ™‚ Taking a few breaths.

What do you find that helps you remain calm as a mom? I would love to hear from you! When I was younger, I thought everyone at the age I am now, had life figured out, and knew all the ropes of parenting πŸ™‚ I know, too funny πŸ™‚

This mom gig is the hardest thing ever. Most rewarding, but still hard!

Now, I am going to bed to sleep like a baby πŸ˜‰ Well, if my baby allows that πŸ™‚

Summertime…

You have gone way too fast! Some quick photos of sweet summertime ..This boy is a joy and delight to us!! Even if he sleeps like a… well, not even sure what description to use πŸ™‚ Good thing he is so cute, lol! In all honesty though, I am blessed at how good one can feel on little sleep!! Supplementation can make a HUGE difference, and I see it so much during this sleep regression and busy summer!!

This picture just gives me all the feels πŸ™‚ She sticks out her hip, and plunks him on it, and is his little mother πŸ™‚A corn day..And having cousins here to helpΒ makes it so much more fun πŸ™‚

Sunsets are my fave!!Backyard fun…And I could have added so many more photos, but I will stop here πŸ™‚

My chunk and pretty light! Yes please πŸ™‚

Have an amazing week!
