HUM Nutrition

I am not one to share my passion for a specific product, unless I find myself truly in LOVE with not only the product, but the company. I was so excited to receive my new HUM order yesterday, that I felt it was time to share my passion for HUM Nutrition, on Growing Self!  img_1855

I have been using vitamins and supplements from HUM Nutrition for about a year, and I have never been disappointed. I tried to narrow down my favorites and it was almost impossible!  But, I can’t imagine my life without these 4 products…

Moody Bird is formulated with dong quail root and chaste berry to help maintain hormonal balance.  Think of it as your best friend during PMS or menopause! Let’s just say that I have noticed a POSITIVE difference during the more “challenging” times of the month! (My family can vouch for that, too!)

Arctic Repair assists in rejuvenating my 46-year-old skin!  It helps with those fine lines, too!  Repair away, my beauty sidekick!

Wing Man was one of the first products I tried from HUM Nutrition, due to struggling with dark circles.   Within 2 months, I noticed a significant improvement, thanks to the silymarin extracted from the milk thistle seed.  Not only does it help your dark circles, but is a great liver detox, too!

OMG is packed full of omega-3 fatty acids, for not only beautiful skin tone, but overall heart and body health!

I am passionate about health and wellness.  Hum Nutrition has been a beautiful addition to my daily regimen.  Keep in mind, these are just a few of my favorites!  Check out their website for the full collection!

I might not have a lot of time to pamper myself, so I think of HUM as my daily spa treatment!

Love Yourself…Embrace Yourself…Just  Be You…



Positive Vibes

2017 was a bit of a bumpy year, from a health perspective. Because of this, my workout routine became almost nonexistent.  Keep in mind, I love to exercise! Daily walks, yoga, and weights are all a natural part of my everyday life.   Add meditation and healthy eating to this regiment, and I am one happy girl!  I so appreciate the hard work and health benefits, of a healthy lifestyle, especially when I witness the results.


The scale has never been my friend!  It is an evil little machine that should be used for measuring the weight of anything but humans.  I am 5’10…I have been 5’10 since 9th grade.  Rather than using the phrase “tall girl”, my mom consistently referred to me as a “big girl”.  I have never considered myself BIG by any means; I am TALL, with an athletic build.  It is amazing how a simple word can have such a negative impact on life.

I spent my first 30 years of existence comparing myself to others.  I also lived those years in turmoil over the number on the scale.  Regardless if I ran 5 miles or 10 miles, I was always comparing.  If only I would have focused my energies on embracing my own gifts…


On 11-11-11 I turned 40!  40 was liberating for me.  I spent my 30s figuring out ME.  I learned to love myself.  I learned to embrace the things I could not change.

It is so easy to compare ourselves to others.  Now, I choose to compare myself to ME and only ME.  It feels great to be able to workout again and give 110% to my health and wellness.  I might be 46 years old and have wrinkles, stretch marks and a few platinum hairs, but I love ME!  I will always strive to be the best version of myself.

Love Yourself…Embrace Yourself…Just Be You…

Oh Chocolate, My Chocolate: Energy Bites

I love chocolate! Today, rather than invading the left over holiday candy, I thought I should locate my energy bite recipe, to fill my need for sweet! I knew it was one of my first blog posts, so it was easy to locate. If you missed it the first time around, here is your second chance! YUM!!

Love Yourself…Embrace Yourself…Just Be You…


Growing Self

When I contemplate my top 10 favorite things in life, chocolate would probably fall in the top five. That rich, melty goodness that floods my body with warmth and happiness…Awwww, perfection! Chocolate and I have been friends for as long as I can remember…

In elementary school, her name was “Hershey Kiss”. We would always have lunch together, for Mrs. Case, my fourth and fifth grade teacher loved chocolate as much as I did. Feeding Hammy the Hamster, each day before lunch, was my classroom job.  Mrs. Case would leave a Hershey Kiss on my desk, as a token of thanks. She never missed a single day thanking me and I never missed a single day feeding Hammy.

My relationship with chocolate grew to a deeper level in middle school. I wanted to take shop class, like my twin brother. But, I was a girl and therefore expected to take…
