It’s the new year- and so many people are focused on cleansing their body so they can start the new year off right. While taking care of your body is essential, a lot of people forget to take care of their mind. Your brain needs a cleanse just as bad. Have you noticed that you’re lethargic, sluggish, and have trouble focusing on simple tasks? This could be a case of sensory overload. When we take time to relax it usually takes place on our couch in front of the TV. Every day we are constantly looking at screens, whether your job is sitting in front of a computer or you’re constantly on your phone or tablet our lives revolve around technology. While extremely convenient, our mind has taken a toll. It is important to take time to let your mind and eyes rest from all of that artificial light and sound.
Before hearing about MRM, I had been interested in incorporating BCAA’s after my workouts during the week to help with muscle soreness and recovery. After doing some researching online of other brands with BCAA products I was noticing that most if not all had a lot of added chemicals, some of which I could not pronounce. I tried out the sample of MRM’s BCAA+G Reload Island Fusion and loved the taste right off the bat but I also loved that the flavoring was all-natural and the mixture didn’t contain a bunch of added chemicals or sugar.
I’m not sure how many of you have heard about foil and the possible danger it poses to our future health. Personally, being immersed in the “health-freak” world I have heard an awful lot. For the longest time it was just a concern to avoid aluminum in deodorant and baking soda- but now I’ve comeaaa

Tennis shoes are being shown off as fashion statements, especially on social media. While having some really cute or cool shoes can be great for your personal style, making sure you invest in the correct pair for you workout sessions is extremely important.
I was first introduced to the world of juicing after watching the documentary called Sick, Fat, & Nearly Dead. My husband and I were so impressed with what we saw and learned that we went out and bought our first juicer 4 years ago-something barely $100 from Target. It did not last long before it eventually broke and our juicing journey ended, but boy did we have a blast when we tried it!
When people ask me about my diet, I tell them I’m vegan, followed by, “Well, I’m
90% vegan.” That usually prompts a snide comment such as, “Oh, so you just
choose when you want to care or not?” And my response to that is, I’m not
perfect, and the stress I’d have over trying to be perfect would be worse for me
than any food I could consume. At some point a line must be drawn between
minimizing detriment on the world, and the amount of ill those efforts cause me
as the individual.
In the world of fitness and weight loss everyone seems to be caught up in the numbers on the scale. For a lot of women stepping on the scale is very difficult, and with good reason. A scale reading can seem to make or break your day. But should we be focusing on the scale as much? It’s seems like people are using the numbers on the scale to measure more than their weight. It seems like people are using the scale to measure their self worth.
Should you try to diet during the holidays? How can you avoid gaining that extra 5-10lbs during the holiday we all seem to gain? What about all the dinners you have to attend? These are all questions I get asked a lot this time of year and I wanted to touch on them again because it can be a hard time of the year for people who are trying to stay on track with their health and fitness goals and finish the year strong. I have compiled a list of common issues I have run into and what I typically do for each one; of course, you may find something that works different for you and that’s great!!
