Hello, all! I just spent a week in Ft. Myers, Florida with my Young Living sponsor/enroller (a.k.a. bestie), her husband, and another couple. It was ok being the 5th wheel. I tried to give the couples time without me since they were kind enough to invite me along!
Unfortunately, I'm a beach dummy. I thought I would be fine without sunscreen as I stayed under the umbrella all afternoon on our first day there. I didn't even think about those UV's reflecting off the sand onto my umbrella shaded skin. The result of that was a mild case of sun poisoning, which caused me some dehydration, vomiting, hives, and a nasty bumpy rash on my lower neck/upper chest. Way to go newbie! Right??!
Once again for air travel, I had my quart sized ziplock bag full of oils....thankfully! I rubbed Digize over my stomach to ease the nausea. I made a roller ball with Lavender and Panaway for the hives, rash and burn. My oils "saved my life"!!
Other than that faux pas, the week was wonderful. Since entering the decade of my 50's, I have thought about the "bucket list" for my life. I have made mental notes of things I want on that list. One of the items is parasailing, and I checked that one off this week! The experience was absolutely amazing! I want to do it again!
Weight loss-wise, I managed to still lose a little while indulging in good vacation eats and drinks. Yay! I'm not on track to be rid of the 100# on the schedule I originally planned, but I will get there. I'm sure of it. I'm thrilled that over 31 pounds are gone from me. Young Living products have changed the way I do so many things, without toxins!
I must now get back to some nursing for a bit. Need to pay those bills and prepare for Vacation #3, coming up in June. It will be another economical trip (that's the only kind I take...haha). I am going to Michigan to see my loved ones there (not all family is blood related!), and then hitting a couple of Dead and Company shows on my way back. While in Michigan, my friend I am staying with is taking me to an event called "Hippie Fest". I'm sure I will love it! Unlike all the little beach shops in Florida, I bet I will find all kinds of clothes I want to buy! Ha!
Peace to you, friends!
