Frustration, Research and Change

I have spent the past few months researching, learning, and trying to discover how to keep my family as healthy as possible on a shoe string budget. It has been exhausting and often discouraging. I have been reading more about gut health than I ever thought possible. I battle fatigue and my weight. I have a grave relationship with sugar, and am tired of finding artificial dyes and other such nonsense in food and supplements.

Aside from my children, one of the aspects I love most about being a mom is the community. We are often all in the same boat. I am not the only mom budgeting. I am not the only mom trying to keep her family as healthy as possible. I’m not the only mom researching health issues. I’m not the only mom wondering if being constantly exhausted has to be a new normal. I am not the only mom struggling with her weight. I am not the only mom with a crazy sweet tooth. I am not alone.

Through research and my momma community I encountered Plexus. When ladies I trusted began to talk about the positive effect this company has had on their health and the health of their families, I half listened, half balked, but I couldn’t shake the curiosity. I got so curious and liked their products so much that I am now a Plexus ambassador myself. No I won’t be spotted in London at the American Embassy. I’m not that kind of ambassador. I will, however, be trying to get my body under control, from a health and wellness perspective, as well as my family and anyone else I am able to help.

Plexus is a boutique line of 19 high-quality, all natural supplements. No artificial ingredients. No artificial dyes. No nonsense. They are used to get at the root of some basic problems such as poor gut health and out of control blood sugar. These are huge contributing factors in fatigue, weight management, and sugar cravings.

Right now my favorite grouping of products is called the triplex combo. It includes Slim aka: The Pink Drink, Bio Cleanse, and ProBio5. The Pink Drink helps maintain normal blood sugar levels and was originally developed for diabetic patients. When your blood sugar is in line its much easier to fight sugar and food cravings. Sustained daily energy and weight management become much easier too because your body isn’t dealing with drastic energy crashes. Hurrah! BioCleanse and ProBio5 work in happy tandem to get your gut healthy. Did you know 70-80% of your immune system lives in your gut?! ProBio5 provides five strains of probiotic “good” bacteria. These strains work to boost nutrition absorption and leave you with a gut full of the bacteria you want, not of what you don’t. BioCleanse works along side to cleanse the gastrointestinal tract. Keeping it regular people!

“Be Trustworthy. Be Honest. Be reliable. Be responsible.”

These are the core company beliefs of Plexus … beliefs I can get behind. There are things as mommas we cannot control. We cannot control the exhaustion that comes from children who have a rough night sleeping. We still have to carry on. We cannot control days where dealing with disobedience and meltdowns drains us of all emotional energy. I know I’m not alone in wanting to crawl in a hole some days. I know I’m not alone in wanting to take hold of what is in my control. If  your troubles look like mine lets do something about it. Join me. Here’s me Plexus page. I am just starting on my journey but am encouraged. Please feel free to comment here on the blog or my Facebook page, here. Over the next few weeks I will be sharing with you my journey. I will also be writing more about the products Plexus carries and why they have been so helpful.

I know its Monday but we’ve got this! Love you my fellow mommas!
