Breath Right This Year With Breathe Right Nasal Strips

I have to admit that in this house I am the person who snores. I know it isn't really the most lady like thing ;) and my husband has been very tolerant lol. About a month ago I started working and the problem became even worse! Between bottle feeding kittens, homeschooling three amazing children  and working full time when I laid my head on the pillow I was DONE and often in a position that just made my snoring even worse.....and in walks cold season. Last week I came down with a cold, and blowing my nose just wasn't taking it all away. I decided to give Breathe Right Nasal Strips a try. Now I thought it was really neat that I could find Breathe Right Nasal Strips not just in their original strip but they also came with a calming lavender scent as well as several other varieties and even for kids! Working long hours and constantly being on the go can sometimes make it hard to relax when I do get a night off, leaving me awake till midnight when everyone else is fast asleep.
I started using Breathe Right Nasal Strips 4 days ago and have really enjoyed them. The light Lavender scent is just enough it helps me fall asleep more quickly. The ability to breath is probably the best side effect ;) They were easy to apply and surprisingly didn't feel like I was ripping off a bandaid when the time came to remove it.lol I have to say after years of not picking up a box of Breathe Right Nasal Strips I really wish I would have tried them sooner. To have a natural, medication fee way to relieve my nasal Congestion and help with my snoring problems has been really nice. I can't wait to try the kids version on my children when they are in need.

Why I am Beginning My Plexus Journey

     I can't say I have ever been an extremely healthy person. While I don't remember my mom being unhealthy growing up I do kind of remember not being made to eat what we didn't want to, and well I didn't want to eat anything healthy. Never really thought about it though I am a tall person and growing up I always wore a 00 or a 0 so hey why not just keep doing what makes me happy. Fast forward a little and I have 3 kids. Now I can't say OMG that is what caused the weight gain, because let's face it there are plenty of people out there who have kids and are still looking sexy. I went from a 0 to a size 4 in pants and an extra small to a Medium in shirts. Now I know this doesn't sound HUGE and, by no means do I think it is, but the 30 pounds I have hanging around has done so many things for me, and non of them are positive! My biggest struggle is my self esteem, now I know most women and especially mothers struggle with this as they get older and I never was really a "oh look at sexy me: kind of person but it has gotten to the point where I would rather hide under a hoodie and sweat pants then a tank top and jeans. When I look in the mirror, I do have good days but usually I see the person I don't want to be. My good friend from high school and college roommate started using Plexus and knowing the struggles she has always had I began to watch her. She dropped weight and most importantly inches, her moods improved and her self esteem grew. So I decided that I would join her in this journey. Now I know I have some inches to lose and some pounds. I don't know what that number is yet but I'm sure I will know when I get there. I'm hopeful I will feel more alive and sleep better, I have suffered with insomnia since having children and have yet to find a safe way to fix it and wake up feeling refreshed. I am also hopeful that this will help with my pain levels. I was going to come in here and say weight isn't the most important thing, my size didn't really matter, then I started reading back my post and lets face it, it does. My waist line is the same size as my boobs, and my pants measurement is 5 inches smaller on a bad day.........so it is safe to say my muffin is overflowing and ready to say goodbye! I hope that everyone will continue to check back, share your stories and maybe find a little inspiration knowing you aren't alone. If you would like to learn more about Plexus and their products, or even join my on my journey I would love to have you. mellissahanks.myplexusproducts.com
