I manage a country homestead and the lives of my 4 babies ages 10,8,5 and 3. I LOVE TO RUN and NEED to keep healthy and fit for my SANITY!! Seriously....All problems are solved when I am running.

Making MY health a priority allows me to be the mother and wife that I need to be for them.

I'm trying so desperately to stay away from coffee. I am just so tired all the time and coffee will not give me that fake awake I'm looking for, so I might as well just get off of it all together and rest more. Besides...this way I won't dehydrate myself.

I'm finding green tea with peppermint or lemon MUCH better anyway. Actualy I'm having some right now. The lemon is soothing, and the heat is nice on this freezing cold day.
Did you know that lemon combined with the green tea increases it's antioxidant properties?? I read that in a magazine. I'll do everything I can right now to have as much energy and imunity as possible.

My Naturopath also told me to snack on Pumpkin seeds. They are high in Zinc. Good for my immune system.

That's all I have. I think this tea just did the trick and I'm good to go for the rest of the afternoon. Check out the baby in my belly!! The little peanut has arms!! How neat.

Hey, did you know that green tea is naturally caffeinated (unless of course you have actual decaf). Just in case you care. I am not a pregnant-non-caffeine-person (who are we kidding) but some are. Thought you might be interested.
What's with the contractor??
