A Day in the Life of a Naughty Doodle

I couldn't make this up if I tried. I spent the better part of my weekend digging through frozen dog crap to recover $250 in cash that WASN'T mine! Thank God for copious amounts of coconut oil and rubber gloves. And thank you of course to the Hockey parents who are understanding enough to rewrite me checks. I hope the folks at Bremer are ready for me.
 And yeah, a few people had to re-write me checks. Funny thing is she didn't eat any of the checks, she just ripped a few up and left them. But she did eat the baggie AND the list of who paid!!
Getting down and dirty and tromping through the snow in the backyard to find the treasure!
Now that is what you call "cold hard cash!"


Here I went into Bremer with my hockey mom gloves on, doggy bag, crapped on cash and Thieves hand sanitizer! Got almost all of the money deposited. Unfortunately you need the face on the bill and Bella ate the face of a $20 and too much on a $50. Never did find the other part of the $50. So I will just be making a donation to I Falls Rec Hockey!

Young Living NEW 5-Day Nutritive Cleanse. Day FIVE is complete!! I did it!!

I DID IT! This is the evening of day FIVE of the the NEW 5-Day Nutritive Cleanse by Young Living. I MADE IT! I was successful and managed to tackle FIVE days of just shakes, ningxia red and digest & cleanse, without the optional snacks!

Like always, I weighed in this morning and am down another pound, for a total of 6.5 pounds in four days. I'm excited to weigh in tomorrow and see what five full days of cleansing did! I'll post a recap video diary this week and let you know how it went introducing foods back into my system.

I completed five days of the three "meals" of Digest + Cleanse (at least 30-60 minutes before the shake) and a big glass of water, Balance Complete Shake and 1-2 oz of Ningxia Red. I drank the recommended water in between meals but chose not to do the snacks.

Today I noticed I was "hangry." I was crabby and wasn't sure if it was from being home all day or making more than just supper for my family. But I will totally make sure this is a Monday-Friday thing next time. I feel like being home let my mind think about food more than when I am at work.

And of course it took five full days for "things to move." But YEAH, finally!

Stay tuned for recap video! I CAN'T WAIT to see how I do this next week while travelling five days for work.

Young Living NEW 5-Day Nutritive Cleanse. Day FOUR complete!

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by! My name is Becky Olson and I am a Young Living Independent Distributor (#1480648).

Here I am on evening FOUR of the the NEW 5-Day Nutritive Cleanse by Young Living. Just one day left. Today I felt great and am ready to see how my body will adjust when I start eating solid foods again.

I weighed in this morning and am down another pound for a total of 5.5 pounds. While I should be excited about losing 5.5 pounds in three days, I was hoping for more than one pound moving on the scale. I am sore from lifting yesterday so I am thinking that I may have some water retention while those muscles are repairing themselves.

I completed the three "meals" of Digest + Cleanse (at least 30-60 minutes before the shake) and a big glass of water, Balance Complete Shake and 1-2 oz of Ningxia Red. I drank the recommended water in between meals but chose not to do the snacks.

The hunger between meals is decreasing. I'm not sure if my body is used to it or if it's more mental will power. Either way, I'm glad I chose to do the first five days without the optional snacks.

I am still not experiencing the gas and bloating more than usual. A little nervous to start introducing real foods back into my body and what will happen. I plan on easing back into it with still doing a shake or two a day.

Stay tuned for day FIVE, the last and final cleanse day! It's supposed to bring no cravings and have you fully prepared to put healthy food choices into your body! CAN'T WAIT!

If you are planning on continuing with the next phase, you should look into the Core Supplement Kit. It includes the Core Essentials Complete, which are: Longevity, True Source, OmegaGize, and Life 5. Along with Ningxia Red and Balance Complete.

Young Living NEW 5-Day Nutritive Cleanse. Day THREE is complete!

Here I am on evening THREE of the the NEW 5-Day Nutritive Cleanse by Young Living. I finally have WAY more energy and am feeling really good!

So first things first, I weighed in this morning and am down another 2 pounds for a total of 4.5 pounds. Way pumped about that!

I completed the three "meals" of Digest + Cleanse (at least 30-60 minutes before the shake) and a big glass of water, Balance Complete Shake and 1-2 oz of Ningxia Red. I drank the recommended water in between meals but chose not to do the snacks.

I was still a little hungry between the shakes, but less than the last two days. I stuck to just drinking water all day today. I did add peppermint to the water to try to change up the flavor and to see if it would help get things moving.

I was able to lift today in an arm class and had my shake right before I worked out I felt way better during and after the workout! So those extra calories were needed to exercise!

I am still not experiencing the gas and bloating more than usual. II had no headache today so that is a bonus!

Stay tuned for day four! It's supposed to bring even little to no cravings and even more energy! CAN'T WAIT!

Young Living NEW 5-Day Nutritive Cleanse. Day Two

Here I am on evening TWO of the the NEW 5-Day Nutritive Cleanse by Young Living. I MADE IT!

So first things first, I weighed in this morning and am down 2.5 pounds. Super excited to see the scale move in the right direction! I am certain it is all water weight, but I am also loving not having water retention. My rings are loose and I am craving salty foods!

I completed the three "meals" of Digest + Cleanse (at least 30-60 minutes before the shake) and a big glass of water, Balance Complete Shake and 1-2 oz of Ningxia Red. I drank the recommended water in between meals but chose not to do the snacks.

I was still hungry between the shakes, but relied more on tea today than anything. Just a simple herbal, non-caffeinated tea. I need the warmth it provides on these super cold MN days.

I am still not experiencing the gas and bloating more than usual. I also did not experience the headache nearly as bad as yesterday. I was super happy about that. It was there just a bit, but totally tolerable and I used far less oils today for the pain.

I did try a noon workout and struggled. I just didn't have the energy. It was a Core/Back class and it was still challenging. I hadn't had my shake until after my class and I maybe would have felt better had I drank it before I worked out. And I was a little worried about farting in class while doing a bunch of sit ups, so I put my mat in the back :)

And today I address the big elephant in the room. Pooping. Or not pooping. I totally think every one could do this cleanse while working, at home, working out, etc...

Stay tuned for day three! It's supposed to bring even less cravings and more energy! CAN'T WAIT!!

Young Living NEW 5-Day Nutritive Cleanse. Evening Day one of the cleanse.

Here I am on evening one of the the NEW 5-Day Nutritive Cleanse by Young Living.

I survived! Maybe not the best word to use, but I totally feel like I made it and I'm glad!

I completed the three "meals" of Digest + Cleanse (at least 30-60 minutes before the shake) and a big glass of water, Balance Complete Shake and 1-2 oz of Ningxia Red. I drank the recommended water in between meals but chose not to do the snacks.

I will admit I was hungry between the shakes. Not enough that I felt like I had to eat the snacks, but had I packed them with me at work, I may have eaten them.

I am not experiencing the gas and bloating more than usual. I am experiencing the headache (almost all day) and I was super tired and yawned all day. So I'm not sure if that is from the lack of calories, no caffeine or what, but I'm hoping the recommended increase in energy tomorrow comes!

Young Living NEW 5-Day Nutritive Cleanse

It's HEEEERRRREEE! My NEW 5-Day Nutritive Cleanse by Young Living has arrived! I had to jump in and read all the info to prepare for tomorrow!! Barrett and I are both going to be doing this for the next 5 days! I am excited to kick start my metabolism, curb my cravings and lose some weight! I'll be posting video diaries for each day so you can follow along on our journey! Here's hoping we aren't totally crabby and angry with each other the whole 5 days. I think not eating real food may actually be the scariest part of this whole thing. But I love that we are going to try it together!

Happy New Year from the Olson's! Cheers to 2015! May it be just as FUN!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

We ring in each new year with a family tradition. NERF gun fight. We're talking all out, moving furniture, creating barricades, extra nerf bullets and sunglasses as goggles. 

We usually start out with a nice fancy dinner...complete with king crab legs and champagne. My hubby LOVES New Year's Eve. I don't think we have ever gone out to celebrate. As long as I can remember we've done this. The Nerf guns came in once the boys were older though.

The boys love crab legs. We go all out and have the butter, the cracking tools, the extra nice napkins and dig in. Parker is almost 100% on his own getting the meat out of the shell but Emmitt still needs extra help.


The boys made each of us little table tents with our names on them. Added an extra nice touch to our setting.




Once our bellies are full we gear up in the living room and begin the fight. This year the boys found the canned air for cleaning out the computer keyboard and used it up as poisonous knock out gas. Love the creativity!

This is sweet Emmitt showing me his "angry eyes."

Talk about taking one in the eye!

Happy New Year from our crazy family to yours!

Welcome to 2015!
