Sick Day


Hi Beauties,

Sorry, no new post today. I’m home with a sick baby! Since I’m a one-woman show this means putting the to-do list on hold, snuggling my little one and *attempting* to rest myself. Haha. I thought this photo was fitting.

I’m utilizing all my tried and true natural remedies…salt water gargle, raw garlic, green juice, water and sleep. Do you have any tips that you swear by? I’d love to hear them.

I’ll be back with a regularly scheduled post soon!




PS – did you know that every week (except this week) I post on Monday, Wednesday and Friday? Be sure to check back every few days for fresh new content. I’ll be back tomorrow (my birthday) with a fun announcement! I also have a super-yummy pumpkin recipe coming up next week that you won’t want to miss. 🙂

PPS – in case you missed it: 5 reasons you’re not seeing results from your workout, a healthy homemade pumpkin spice latte and free online workouts.

    Just about to start my day with a 10 minute session of yours and saw this! Oregano oil all the way, and warm water with ginger and lemon. Feel better you two!

    Oh no! I hope you and Blake both feel better quickly. In the mean time, enjoy those snuggles :). I agree with oregano oil for sure, and also Apple cider vinegar and some Thieves essential oil (peppermint EO is great for fevers too). Prayers for rest and healing xo

    Hi Robin–I swear by fermented foods-like raw sauerkraut, kombucha and kefir, they can knock illness out quickly. AND they can also prevent illness if you consume them regularly! I don’t think your little one can consume these things, but at least it could keep you healthy!

    We also rely on baths and humidifier when baby is sick and saline for his runny nose.

    Oil of Oregano pills! Start taking them as soon as you feel you are getting sick. It is THE best!
