How is Your Family Living Beautifully? #SuaveFamilySelfie #LB2LB #Walmart

What does it mean to you when you hear, "Living beautifully?" Are you living beautifully each day? How about those around you? What do you use to live beautifully? How do you inspire others around you to be their best and to live beautifully? Thanks to Global Influence for sponsoring this post. As always my own opinions are shared here on my blog.

For me, living beautifully means:
  • Living life at your fullest potential
  • Never giving up but working hard
  • Giving help to those around you
  • Sharing your time and talents for those in need

One way that I feel as though I have been living beautifully these past 20 years is by raising my three beautiful daughters with my husband of 21 years. The above photo of my family is from my daughter's wedding last month. Don't we all look beautiful? lol We were all truly living beautifully that day. 

I entered our living beautifully family photo in the Suave Family Selfie sweepstakes (click link to get the full scoop) today and you can, too! To enter, share a living beautifully family selfie on Instagram and Twitter using these hashtags: #SuaveFamilySelfie #LB2LB #Walmart

Happy #NationalFitnessDay Challenge Tips for a Healthier Lifestyle

Are you happy with your health? Your weight? I doubt anyone is ever 100% satisfied but wouldn't it great to be at least 90% or higher? 

I've been on a healthier lifestyle journey for over 2 1/2 years and if I would have asked myself those questions before I started I would have answer ... 
  1. NO I am not happy with my health. I was on the verge of needing high blood pressure meds and diabetes meds.
  2. My weight was the highest I had ever send it and it was going up and up and up.
  3. I would have said that I was 0% happy with my healthy and weight.
TODAY 2 1/2 years later here are my answers....
  1. I am SO HAPPY with my HEALTH! I've never felt or been healthier in my entire life.
  2. I'm 100% satisfied (ok really like 99%) with my current weight. It is the lowest in 20 years and I'm buying clothes in sizes that I wore before I was married 21 years ago. I am NOT where I think my weight should be but work on it daily.
  3. I am 100% satisfied with my health and weight which is an ongoing journey to keep it there and to improve daily
