Aquarius (Jan. 20th - Feb. 18th)

For you, Aquarius, this year will be all about self discovery. 2017 brought many struggles and hardships that took a lot out of you. But fear not, 2018 is the year that those hardships help form you as a person. And that doesn't mean it's for the bad! For once, all the self doubt and questioning will come to an end. So be patient, your time is coming.

Pisces (Feb. 19th - Mar. 20th)

Pisces, let's be honest, 2017 definitely wasn't your year. But thankfully the stars aligned and this year is all about the major breakthrough you've been working so hard on. Not only will this breakthrough bring relief, but it'll provide you with so much optimism and hope and positivity for future occurring events. Nothing in bad spirits will come your way, so just breath.


Aries (Mar. 21st - Apr. 19th)

To say the least, this year will be BEYOND eventful. Expect your big dreams to be recognized in big ways. Nothing you do goes unnoticed Aries! Just make sure you don't ruin things for yourself by losing focus or making decisions that go against your own morals, no matter how hard that may be. Stay level headed and let things come your way.



Taurus (Apr. 20th - May 20th)

Alright Taurus, this is the year you need to hold on tight and embrace new, and sometimes scary, changes. But, don't be alarmed, keep going full speed and don't let a thing stop you. These changes will happen physically and mentally and unless you stop to really think about them, you won't have any idea they're occurring. Your 2018 is all about taking risks, so keep doing just that and you'll be fine! Who knows what kinds of things these changes could lead to.

Gemini (May 21st - Jun. 20th)

Gemini, it's no secret that you've lost your spark lately. But, have no fear, 2018 will be the breakthrough you needed to get back on track and start doing things the way you've always wanted them done. You're going to be blessed with optimism, confidence, and maybe your special someone. It's been a long time coming, so don't shy away. Now is your time.

Cancer (Jun. 21st - Jul. 22nd)

Cancer, you've been struggling with a relationship lately. Maybe is was a breakup, divorce, trying to re-kindle an old flame? Whatever it may be, you'll finally receive the clean slate you've been waiting for. 2018 will bring nothing but happiness and positivity, but don't question it! You have a tendency of ruining good, pure, spontaneous moments because you feel as though you need the answer to everything. Relax. Not everything has to make sense. Just wait.

Leo (Jul. 23rd - Aug. 22nd)

2017 for you, Leo, was a series of trial and error. As you welcome in the new year, maybe start the welcome the changes that you've been considering making. Who knows what it could do for you.

Virgo (Aug. 23rd - Sep. 22nd)

As a Virgo you tend to put off your needs and wants. You're so focused on pleasing everyone that you fail to realize that sometimes you yourself need a break. 2018 is your year to focus on you. You've got big changes coming up and the last thing you need to be concerned with is someone else's problems. Take a step back from what you consider your responsibilities and start thinking about what you need to do to be successful. This will most definitely be your year. You'll have to want it though.

Libra (Sep. 23rd - Oct. 22nd)

You've never been the type to let go of decisions and mistakes of the past, Libra. But 2018 will give you the refreshing start that you've needed. Sometimes it's better to not dwell on the past and just continue to move forward and make the best of what you've been given. As your outlook starts to change, so will those around you. Don't let that scare you, be open to new ideas and new people. You have no idea what, or who, might be in store for you.

Scorpio (Oct. 23rd - Nov. 21st)

Okay, Scorpio, this is the year you step out of your comfort zone and into the danger zone. Do not be afraid of what you haven't experienced, because you won't know what life is truly like until you give it your all. Remain open minded, and whatever you do, DO NOT CANCEL ON PLANS!!! This is your year for love, especially with someone you may already know. Give it time. After all, this is the year of the danger zone for you.


Sagittarius (Nov. 22nd - Dec. 21st)

Alright Sag, it's time for you to break out of your shell as well. But, not in the sense of experiences, we both know you have plenty of those. But try being more open to talking about yourself, being vulnerable and revealing about things that people may not know. You have this habit of pretending things never happened and that's holding you back from things that could have been. Although it's too late to go back and change things, give 2018 a shot. Your future will thank you for it later.

Capricorn (Dec. 22nd - Jan. 19th)

And last, but not least, Capricorn. This my friend, is the year of shutting up, and I mean that in the nicest way possible. In 2017 you had a bad habit of talking more than listening and it's caused you to miss a lot of opportunities. In 2018 let's try to hear people out before you decide to speak your truth. So many opportunities are coming you way and it would be a shame for you to miss them because you couldn't stop talking long enough to listen for the cue of greatness. So deep breaths dude, you're fine and this year is completely yours.

An Honest Review Of ItWorks! From Someone Who Doesn't Sell The Products

No, I'm not looking for you to "join a team" or begin any challenges.

I'm sure you've seen your friends on Facebook transition from friend to salesman. Whether it be for Scentsy, LipSense, or AdvoCare; multi-level marketing companies are on the rise thanks to social media. ItWorks! remains one of the most prominent.

ItWorks! is a health and wellness company using primarily plant-based ingredients without any artificial sweeteners or coloring. Their "number one seller" is the famous body wraps but the company is mostly weight loss supplements and vitamins. The company has a passion for the natural over the synthetic. Co-founder Mark Pentecost states on the site's Our History page that "you want to know that you're putting the very best things in your body."

Since most reviews of these products come from distributors, who are therefore biased, I have reviewed three of their greatest products and one I believe you should avoid.

1. Greens™ Blend Chocolate

As a vegan, I sometimes have to double check that I'm receiving the proper nutrients. ItWorks! Greens have been saving my life lately. It contains 52 herbs and nutrient-rich superfoods as well as 34 fruits and veggies. It is meant to alkalize, balance, and detoxify.

This is my favorite product! It gives me energy and even fills in for breakfast sometimes. It honestly makes me feel great. Then again... they always said eating all your fruits and veggies would!

ItWorks! gives you those healthy servings in a delicious chocolate flavor (which is bomb with almond milk). Make sure you use a blender bottle or blender. Like many powdered supplements, it can have that grainy aftertaste.

2. Advanced Formula Fat Fighter™

The idea behind this supplement is that it’s "okay to indulge if you have your Fat Fighters." Basically, if you just must have that sweet treat or piece of bread then you can take this pill within an hour to prevent your body from absorbing the carbs and a portion of the fats. If you're anything like me, you eat what you want when you want, so you'll end up taking these pills on the daily.

The main reason I like the Fat Fighters is that they reduce cravings and I normally have such a sweet tooth!

3. ThermoFIGHT™

This product is meant to increase calorie burning, boost the rate of your metabolism, and boost your energy. Like with Greens, I definitely feel energized when I take this supplement. Not in a jittery or wired way, either.

They say "abs start in the kitchen" but I'll try and cheat the system when I can!

4. Ultimate Body Applicator™ and Defining Gel™

This is the ItWorks! claim to fame... and that ASTOUNDS me.

I used to be so skeptical of this company because of the wraps. I tried them three different times and was not impressed each time. The ultimate body applicator and defining gel are meant to tighten and tone the skin to redefine the appearance of your body’s contour. Sure, you'll receive those results... just at an outrageous price. It's an expensive product that requires a lot of re-purchasing in order to receive any drastic results. Not to mention the most drastic results are just reduction of water weight.

They're really just an overpriced skin firming lotion. I suggest finding a nice cream from Target and sitting in the sauna instead.

If your facebook-friend-turned-salesman pushes for you to buy the wraps, just remember that I warned you.

I would like to give an honorary mention to KetoCoffee (probably their second most popular item). Because it is not vegan, I have not given it a try. I have heard amazing things from multiple women, though. Most keto coffee recipes give people the shakes and amp them up too hard. I've heard that ItWorks! has perfected the recipe.

I have used the first three products for a little over three months now. Sometimes I am inconsistent and miss servings. However, I match these products with a vegan diet (mostly whole foods based) and 3-4 days of exercise. I do not have drastic results but I have lost a little over ten pounds and feel great each day. I plan to remain a customer with this company (I have Greens on Autoship!).

I feel so blessed to be a Loyal Customer with ItWorks! because I receive up to 40% off and free shipping after three months. Without this discount, I probably never would have given this company a second thought. I highly recommend going that route because, well...

I'm Chronically Sick And It Made Me Appreciate The Little Moments In Life

My doctor's office became a second home to me, but never gave me the answers I needed.

176

People get sick all the time, a cold here, the flu there. It doesn't seem like anything out of the ordinary to get sick a few times a year - I wish that was the case for me.

I have always been the kid in class who seemed to get a cold every couple weeks. It never caused an issue in school, I always pushed through.

As I got older I got sicker.

If I look back at the last year and compare the times I was sick to my friends, you would be amazed. One of my friends would get a cold and it would pass in a few days. I would catch the same cold, and it would stay with me for multiple weeks. This happened every time someone around me was sick, it didn't matter that I had had the same virus two weeks prior. My body couldn't shut out illness.

I remember the day I came into the editor's office at the magazine I was working for and everyone froze at the sight of me. I had mono, strep throat, and a sinus infection - all at the same time. I looked like a walking ghost. To make it worse, I had already had mono and strep throat previously that winter.

My doctor's office became a second home to me, but never gave me the answers I needed. Everything was just a little annoying until it got serious.

Halfway through fall semester at Washington State University, I faced the scariest medical moment of my life so far. I started getting stabbing pains in my left side. They escalated over the next couple weeks, but I didn't have the time to get it checked out. School, work, my friends, and my boyfriend at the time kept me busy.

It got to the point I couldn't stand it anymore.

When I finally went into the hospital the doctors were amazed I was still as active as I was. I had developed a massive infection in my left kidney. My doctor ordered a rush CT scan to ensure I didn't have to have surgery. In the meantime, I was on multiple painkillers and medications, bedridden for over a week. The results finally came back and I was in the clear. With that said, I now only have half of my left kidney function and it is unclear if I will gain it back.

I was lucky that I didn't lose my kidney from that infection. With that said, I lost my job, my depression levels rose and I barely passed my classes last semester due to the complications. My sickness had finally caught up with me, and that was the final straw.

Once I recovered from my infection I started seeing an immune specialist. We discovered that my sinuses had been stripped of all needed particles that filter out viruses and that my body was a boundaryless breeding ground for bacteria.

I'm defenseless against getting sick.

To this day we still do not know what is going on, but we are constantly doing testing to try to make my life as easy as it can be medical wise. I will always be sick, but the experiences I have had have only made me appreciate the little moments in life more. While I hate the fact I'm getting sicker, and it makes me struggle with self-love, it is something I'm constantly learning from.
