First of all, as I mentioned in an earlier post, I became more of a fan of Dr. Oz's after visiting the show. He is what they call- the real deal.
I joined Dr. Oz in his segment about 3 steps for a better health in the first 3 minutes of waking up! We discussed being a busy mom (much like the majority of you all) and why it is so important to start the day off right. I urge you to try these easy steps. Seriously, you'll see a difference. Just do it for a few days, then make yourself finish the week...Take note at the end of the week and see if you noticed a difference. I've read it takes 21 days to make or break a habit, so we may need to stick to this plan for a whole 3 weeks, but I will go on record as saying it's the little things that make the biggest difference in my life. These steps are those "little" things that add up to making a big difference in my mood, overall day and productivity. So, in case you missed the episode. let me recap:
1) STRETCH & DO THE SHOULDER ROLL:first thing after waking up, make like Hayden (my baby) and reach your arms high over your head. Then, roll your shoulders back three times. Exaggerate the movement and let your blood really get flowing. If you're ambitious, make like Oscar (my dog) and roll out of bed to do a down dog and chaturanga.
2) DRINK YOUR WATER: One thing I've been forced to do since having a baby (and wanting to continue breastfeeding) is drink more water. In order to start the day properly, I need to down water immediately upon waking up. But, the thing is- YOU SHOULD, TOO. For your liver, for cleansing and getting your body ready for the day. Water is key! Drink it! Keep it by your bed and make it your new habit to down the entire glass first thing after waking (post shoulder rolls!).
3) Keep your immunity up: Winter is coming...even if you live in a warm climate like we do, winter still comes in some form.. We get run down during the winter months. Between travel, holidays and colder weather, it's important to make sure we do everything we can to keep well. Being a new mom (i.e.: sleepless nights, sometimes) I REALLY need to ensure I don't get sick. So, take your vitamins!! The supplement Dr. Oz and I discussed is Usana's Proglucamune.

My little helper. He turns 18 months this week. Never been so grateful. Happy Early Thanksgiving y'all. 🦃
#hapdenjh Thx @ographr:) 📸
Morning with @oscarthehappy. Although his face looks a bit more like the other Oscar. The grouchy one.

During interviews for the upcoming TV movies airing, I was asked to comment on this still photo. Is this me in 9 years?? Negotiating with/disciplining Hayden? 🙈 Loved playing Pamela. She's a single mom giving it all she's got! Watch #12DaysOfGivingMovie with us (@david_blue ⭐️💫 #jaxconnolly) on Dec3rd on @up_tv 🎄 #christmasmovies #wegetchristmas
Quick impromptu snap taken by a stranger passing by on our way to dinner. We were running a bit late due to a couple meltdowns (kids, not me), but I still made us take a picture. Gotta get 'em when we're all together and cleaned up😜 I know I already posted on instastory. #reposting 💁

#FBF to earlier this year with @alifedotowsky. I think the Bachelor was premiering that night. Our babies were barely crawling. It was easier to sneak a coffee walk then...little did we know!
Life is changing quickly with these little ones. 🙈
But some things are staying status quo. (Very aware of the cheesy transition there!) These jackets we loved are back in stock this year. And on sale for $37. If you missed the first time, you have another chance. Details on the blog♥️ #liketkit @liketoknow.it http://liketk.it/2toW0
Just a girl standing in the California sun excited to be wearing a sweater. 💫
Ha! But really... even with temp in high 60s, early 70s, I'm willing to pretend.
Enjoy the day. ☀️

Sitting down to chat with the lovely skin guru Zara from @crmclaser to discuss the best new (and some tried and true) ways to age gracefully, with a little help from modern technology;) Check out the (impromptu) video interview up on the latest blog post👉🏻link in profile. I appreciate that she gives preventative and skin repair options with a wide range of price points for those on a budget, or not! I asked her about some of my most annoying issues (like the lines on my neck😡)! I'll be curious to hear your thoughts. 💫 check out @crmclaser for more info, too! #selfcaresaturday #antiagingskincare #cameraready
Eeep! I took a test! 😳
But, no-it's not what you may be thinking... not a pregnancy! It's a food intolerance test. After years of wondering, I'm seeking answers. I got a kit for Joel, too! @pinnertestusa. More about it on the blog 💫Link in profile. Btw- who has taken a test like this? Very curious about your experience! Chime in here or on the blog:) xx
ps- the feedback from you all is exciting, so I was able to get a discount for those interested...use code ASHLEY (all caps) for $60 off and free shipping.
I love the part of my job where I get to meet and work with lovely new people! @s_a_m_a_i_r_e @ncis_cbs #airingsoon Grab a friend and give a hug 🤗 #happyhumpday @cbstv
