April Showers Bring May Flowers

This post is a bit of a ramble. I apologize for the lack of organization in my writing. I have allergy-brain today. That or I am dehydrated, but I’m working on that. Everything seems a little fuzzy.

Last week was pretty cool. Kyle, my brother, was out of town so I felt a little more responsibility at the gym. It was an awesome week. I work with the best people and our members are just incredible. Anyway, I thought it would be hard and I would be tired, but I ended up feeling really good. I will admit I started feeling tired on Thursday into Friday, but it was nothing a 30 minute power nap couldn’t fix. I was definitely ready for a bit of R&R by Saturday. Something that definitely helped to keep me going last week were my essential oils. I have recently started getting into oils and I am really becoming a believer. The number one reason I like the oils so much is that they provide a natural, non-toxic alternative to chemicals, medications, and potentially harmful household products.

Diffusing oils makes your home smell amazing, but  you also get the aromatherapy benefits. Here I diffused an oil blend called Stress Away with Peppermint for unwinding and uplifting after a long day.

I am very sensitive to scents so traditional scented candles and sprays give me headaches and make me feel nauseous. My oils are a refreshing ( and much healthier) alternative. 

This weather is just absolutely rockin’. We have waited a long time for it. The only problem is that during Spring the flowers and leaves are blooming, the windows are open, the dust us kicking up and my allergies are kicking in! I’ve been waking up feeling like a zombie. The allergy trio oil blend of lavender, peppermint, and lemon has really been helping me to stay on top of my symptoms. I carry a roller bottle around with me and also diffuse the trio when I am home.

It’s been so nice to have the doors open at the gym. It makes the space feel larger and we have the option of going outside. Plus…running! I am struggling to get back into running shape, but I know that with time it will come. It always does. My work over the last 6+ months has really paid off. Last year I completed “DT” in 12:48. Last week I did the workout in 8:46. I am psyched about that.

I am excited for what May has to offer. Each of my weekends is already pretty full which makes me feel blessed, but also kind of overwhelmed. I can do it – it’s going to be awesome. Do you have anything fun and interesting planned for the month of May? Let’s hear it!
