fresh_green_apples_picture_167145I don’t know about you, but I just love waking up daily and feeling well-rested with energy to burn. Unfortunately for years, following an out-of-the-blue metabolic crash in my mid 30s, I ended up facing a daily battle to drum up enough energy to make it through even an average workday.

Always a ‘healthy eater’ I found that even the food I ate no longer seemed to help me get the extra surge of energy I knew I needed. Exercise felt draining instead of renewing and rewarding.

For over a decade after facing early menopause (possibly environmentally-triggered), I did all I could to feel better, including researching umpteen alternatives and wellness solutions hoping to restore or boost my good eating habits with something ‘more’. I knew something was missing. But not even a cupboard full of vitamins or health products seemed to work. Eventually, I went ‘off” metabolic syndrome ‘trigger’ foods including caffeine, dairy, wheat, soy, sugar — yet life remained an almost hopeless drudgery with few positive solutions. When a wonderful friend, Deanna Waters, helped me find what I was looking for… I was ecstatic with joy! (aren’t true friends one of life’s greatest gifts ever?)…I am forever thankful! Explore and learn more about the Usana difference and why elite athletes became part of my inspiration for choosing high science to help me move on to a happier life, more energy and focus, and optimum wellness.





Living life well — we all talk about it but what exactly does living well look like for you? Whether it’s about relaxation, work, play, hobbies, travel, finances, food, fitness, home, relationships, spiritual wholeness or all of the above, living life well often gets down to making positive choices and learning to make the most out of everyday. It often means being more mindful, thankful, caring, forgiving, and kind to both ourselves and others. On a personal note, I recently made a fresh commitment to help my overall well-being by committing to high science wellness products to enhance my life. It’s an exciting and positive step, one that’s already making a difference in my everyday life . I’d love to hear from you…What do you do to live, laugh and thrive?
