Low Back Pain Program (Ebook) Review.

Disclosure: I received this as part of an advertorial

This has been quite a book to read through. With that in mind, I feel like the tortoise from the Tortoise and the Hare. Slow and Steady wins the race. I have seen some gradual improvement with my lower back, since diving into this book.

On my own, progression has been slow and steady, but hopefully when I show this to my trainer, he might be able to properly implement the exercises for me  in my gym routine.

As I progress my way further through this book, I will update my progress, when I can. I have found this book to be a small inspiration, as a person that has been going through lower back pain for awhile.

I had a chance to try some of what I consider to be beginner moves like the kneeling bow rest, seated leg opener, the seated twist,  and I have to say they actually work. They caused me to feel better, and not to have so much pain. I have noticed though, that where I go to the gym, I can equate some of the moves to the yoga stretching class I take on Thursday Night's each week.

I will enjoy adding this to my exercise routine on a regular basis. Like I said, slow and steady wins the race, and that is how I am going about doing this, with my trainer's help and yoga instructors help from now on.

If you have lower back pain, or know someone suffering with it, this is definitely gonna be the book that you will appreciate this holiday season.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Catch Up Time for the Blogger..... Young Living Essential Oil

I have some great products I will be sampling this week as it goes along....

The first of the products for this 3 part posting is from contributor Leslie Deen, who is a representative with Young Living Oils...

I have an apology to make to my contributor, I am sorry it took so long to get this post done Leslie, please for give me. ( I have had so much stuff coming in and out to review.)

The first oil I have decided to try is the essential oil sample of Thieves Oil. Last week I cracked my right pinkie toe, on the side of one of my living room chairs. Leave it to say my toe turned pink, black and blue.(I toughed it out until this week.)

Tonight with the pain still making its way through the top of my toe, I have given the oil a shot. When you cut this sample open, it will open up your sinus, and if you are my husband nearly bring you to tears. This scent will curl you nose hairs. But it does remind me of what the put on pine cones at the holidays. (yes the scent is that strong.) Once you get past the smell it is not that bad, and it becomes more tolerable.

Here are some pictures from this go around with the Thieves Oil.(No one said the pictures would be pretty, just real.):

Please for give the No Digest Marking on the sample. I put it there, to differentiate between what I could use for cooking purposes in my blogging.

the back of the package.

The Thieves Oil has stolen some of the pain in my toe away, to which I am grateful, it means I may get a decent night's sleep and not scream when I turn over, as I toss and turn through the night.

Stay tuned for tomorrows update to see which oil is next on the block to test.... Have a great night....

Here is an update with some of the other oils-December 11th,2014:

This is what I did with peppermint oil:

I threw it in with candy cane cookie mix for the holidays. I took the cookies to a holiday event at church, and surprised a lot of people with the kicky cookie. They were all pleasantly surprised.

This is what I did with the lavender sample:
I added it to the green layer  of cake mix, and it served as another surprise, which some liked and some did not like.

This is what I did with the lemon sample of oil:

I actually added it to the orange layer of the cake. It made for an interesting taste, and freaked my husband out, which was funny.

I have one more sample to go. So keep your eyes peeled for another update.... Happy Holidays!

Update 2015:

I used the peace and calming oil sample mixed with fractionated coconut on my doggie crew. A few of the quintet have a hyper streak at night. So I took a Q-Tip dipped it in the oil mixture and put one dot behind each ear.

I noticed that the posse slept better, and were much calmer when my husband and I finally went to sleep.

I also put a dot or two on my pillow, and it did help me to get to dreamland a bit faster. I will keep you posted on how it goes, and if the boys will stay still enough, hopefully get pictures of them to show you.

Please forgive the markings on the packaging- I did that as a reminder to myself with a sharpie. 

Catching up with the Blogger part 3.....Posh By Ashley

With this final installment of Catching up with the Blogger, the featured items are from Posh by Ashley...

My apologies to my contributor Ashley Hoang of Posh by Ashley for the delay in getting this post up.

Here are the pictures from Day One with the Complexion Perfection and Moisturizer 911 sample one:

(Reminder: no one said the pictures would be pretty, just real.)

The Complexion Perfection by Posh, will definitely wake you up and give your day a kick start, with the mint scent.

After that, when you apply the Moisturizer 911 you get taken to the tropics with a lovely tropical scent, and in this cold weather, that scent is always welcomed.

Stay tuned for day two's update tomorrow on this entry. 

Update 2-19-15:
Once again my apologies for this being late, but I hope to get the Moisturizer 911 and Complexion Perfection done by next week. Since the Holidays it has been just crazy, with stuff coming in left and right.
But here are the pictures from today with both of the mentioned products. I am still feeling great with each use. I woke up with a massive migraine today, and this brightened my day, and made me feel like the rest of the day I can take on. (I used a headband to pull back my hair so you could see everything.)
Remember no one said the pictures would be pretty, or good, just real....

Stay tuned for the next update.....
