4 week challenge over – CBD Tea is great!!! Moving forward with my weight loss!

Posted by | March 2, 2020.
Me and my son Amoz at Museum of Science and Industry at the Black Creativity
art exhibit in February.

I’m happy to say it is March and the February challenge I participated in with fellow Wakanna distributors who were testing out the new “to be released” CBD Coffee and CBD Tea is done. We took pictures on the first day of the challenge and the last day. I could see a little difference in my body. I did lose 8 lbs. I am happy and I feel great. The CBD Tea seems to help alleviate gas and bloating. I also think eating less dairy and bread helps. I feel a healing in my gut! The tea also really helps with constipation and helps keep you very regular!!!

I am not ready to post pictures yet because I personally still have lots of pounds to drop. I will continue to eat 6 times a day to keep my metabolism revved up. Drink lots of water, exercise and drink the CBD tea!!! It officially drops in April during the 1 year anniversary of Wakanna. We will be in Las Vegas at the Convention and as the kids say we will be “TURNT UP.”

In the meantime, continue to follow the blog to learn great knowledge on CBD. I plan to go LIVE on my Instagram on Thursdays and get back to posting on my youtube page too! I want to do some Youtube Live shows!

Do you have questions on CBD? 

Feel free to ask here on the blog and watch for my LIVE posts. I will be sharing the Wakanna CBD product of the week every week too. Watch for the Product of the week for this week, to be announced!!!

Monday – week 4 of weight loss journey with CBD tea and some STRONG Inspirations

Posted by | February 24, 2020.
I love my Wakanna CBD products!
This is me at a recent Art Exhibit called Black Creativity, at the Museum of Science and Industry, in Chicago! I love Art!

Wow, I can’t believe all the inspiration I have experienced today as I woke up to face another Monday. I have been trying to stay focused, manage healthy meal plans, drink lots of water, drink my Wakanna CBD tea daily and workout. It can get tough sticking to your program 100 percent but I got inspiration from some powerful directions today.

  1. Our CEO of Wakanna, Melissa Boston unfortunately, lost her grandmother who was in her 90s and had been married for over 70 years to her granddad. She spoke of her grandmother and what a strong inspiration she was in her life and after hearing her story and how her grandmother lived to help and uplift others I felt motivated to face my day and move forward to try to motivate and support others in Health and Wellness.
  1. Then I learned Kathrine Johnson, who the movie Hidden Figures was based on, died at age 101. This woman pushed forward even at a difficult time for Black women, as an amazing Mathematician. She helped NASA during the time they sent Astronauts to the moon. She changed history and is a true inspiration for using her God-given talent even when the world makes it difficult for Black women to work at the same level as others.
  1. The special Celebration of Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna is on ESPN in a very touching and moving presentation as I post this on my blog. Kobe Bryant was an amazing man who put his all in whatever he did. He loved his family deeply and enjoyed them and enjoyed life.

All of these special people are inspirational to me in different ways and causes me to push harder all I want to do. Life is precious. I want to continue to fulfill some goals and dreams as long as God will allow me to. Losing about 40 pounds is one goal and with the Wakanna CBD tea and other products. With the weight loss program Dr. Rita McGuire is coaching us on, I feel I can do this. I cannot wait to post pictures of myself when I have met my weight loss goals. I’ve lost 6 pounds and still have a long way to go, but I feel so much better on my present diet and exercise plan. 

Stay tuned for the announcement of the release of Wakanna’s CBD coffee and tea this April 2020 at our national convention in Las Vegas!

Week 2 of my healthy program with Wakanna CBD Tea

Posted by | February 10, 2020.

As we go into week 2 of keeping steady with our CBD Tea and CBD Coffee our group is doing great! I feel good and less bloated. I’ve dropped 3.8 lbs and I am so pleased!

I also feel good from working out daily with Tiffany Rothe. She is my professional fitness trainer who comes to my house everyday via the internet. I am a part of her online fitness club. She is the most beautiful, positive and energetic woman I’ve ever seen. I hope to meet her one day in person, because I feel like we are already best friends in my head. LOL

So what has changed in my life since I’ve joined the men and women who are trying out Wakanna’s new CBD Tea and Coffee? Keep in mind, it will be officially released at our conference in Las Vegas in April 2020.

This is what has changed in my life:

  1. I am not snacking all the time on bad, sugary foods or salty chips. I snack 2 or 3 times a day on healthy protein snacks like almonds or walnuts.
  1. I do try to get up and workout everyday, 6 days a week. Thanks to Tiffany Rothe I can workout at home.
  1. I prep my meals better to make sure I’m eating healthy meals.
  1. I eat 6 times a day to keep my metabolism revved up.

So, stay tuned to find out the results of my lifestyle changes and drinking my CBD Tea by Wakanna CBD Products. I will continue to blog daily for the rest of the month.

Momsherbs celebrates Chase’s new musical release!

Posted by | February 7, 2020.
New song “That Girl” coming out this month

I’m so excited and impressed by the talent that surrounds me with my children and even their friends who I consider my sons too! We call him Chase and I know he is a great actor. He and my sons were in Speech competitions together at Thornton High School, in Harvey, Illinois. They went downstate and won high levels in the Speech competitions. But, I learned his true love is music!

Go to my instagram: and see a cute little video we created on Triller. You can hear his new song which will release this month.

As a proud mom, sometimes I can’t help but brag!!!

Photo from this Superbowl Sunday 2020. I can count this as a BEFORE pic

Here’s a photo of me and my sorority sisters hangin out in the 80s at Western Michigan University.

The weight management program I am on is going well. I don’t feel too hungry. In fact, I’m eating more than normal, just lest snacking, which I have a bad habit of doing. We have a great group of people from Wakanna Nation doing this program, so it is very encouraging.

I had to post this picture I took at my daughter’s place on Superbowl Sunday. This is considered my BEFORE pic. I will post an AFTER pic at the end of February after we officially finish the four week run, but I will continue til I reach my goal which will take more time.

Will I ever get as slim as I was back in the mid-eighties, like on that picture with my Delta Sorors????


CBD helps Lupus, learn more!

Dr. Rita’s host weekly webinars on CBD and it benefits!

I am on day 3 of my healthy weight loss challenge that I am doing with some other men and women with Wakanna Nation. We get to try a new CBD Coffee and Tea that is coming out at our upcoming Convention in Las Vegas in April. It is going to be a BLAST! The program is going good so far, I just have to work my way up to drinking a gallon of water a day.

One of the things I love about being a part of Wakanna Nation is the the education. Our chief medical advisor, Dr. Rita McGuire holds very informative webinars each week on various health topics explaining how CBD is beneficial. This week it is on Lupus, an autoimmune disease that many suffer with. Lupus can be painful and this one of the benefits of CBD, it helps ease discomfort. Wakanna has tinctures, gummies, water-soluble and other products that truly helps. Our products use double-certified, full spectrum, organic CBD from farms grown in the States and Europe. 

If you would like to learn more on how CBD can help Lupus and other painful conditions join the webinar tonight, 8pm, central time with Dr. Rita McGuire. Contact me for the webinar details:

February – Daily Blog during my weight management with Wakanna CBD Tea!

Posted by | February 4, 2020.
Dr. Rita McGuire
Day 1 of my program

If you have been a reader of my blog over the years, thank you so much for keeping up with me. As you see, sometimes I am not as active as others, but I am motivated to get back into it. Hoping to blog daily in February while I’m doing a weight management program with CBD Tea with Wakanna products. If you haven’t heard of Wakanna keep reading my blog, you got to learn about this awesome CBD company and it’s also a movement! 

Wakanna is a company that was founded by four African-American women here in Chicago, IL but the company is nationwide. One of the founders is a doctor, Dr. Rita McGuire. She is also very much into health and fitness. She lost over 60 lbs herself a while back. She said she picked a few pounds back on but she is going HARD to lose those pounds and she is working with a group of us, trying out a new weight loss coffee and tea. I am drinking the tea and I am enjoying it so far.

The crazy part about losing weight on this program is that I am actually eating a lot more than I normally eat. We will be eating 6 times a day. Mostly proteins and veggies. I started back eating eggs for this program which I normally don’t eat much. We will also be drinking a gallon of water a day and working out 5 days a week. So I logged into my workouts with Tiffany Rothe who is a great fitness expert to follow. She’s on YouTube. Check her out.

So stay tuned to this program, and learn how it is working for me. I already take some other Wakanna products, the tinctures, CBD gummies and I use the topicals for my plantar fasciitis. I will tell you more on how CBD is really helping my heal pain!!!

If you want to know more about Wakanna CBD products feel free to call or text me at: 708-232-8970

My thoughts on the lost of Kobe Bryant & daughter + more comments…

Posted by | January 27, 2020.

As I was just thinking about getting back into blogging more frequently and starting to collect topics I could talk about, Sunday was one of the most horrible things to happen in a long while with the death of nine people in a helicopter crash in California, which included the Legend Kobe Bryant and his daughter, future Legend, 13 year old Gianni Bryant who probably could have one day been a big WNBA star!

Only God knows our destiny, but situations like this really makes everyone stop for a few minutes and think. It makes many realize how precious life is. How precious our family and friends are and I know I want The Most High God to know I am thankful for His Mercy and grace. 

Reprint from a Facebook post of Elijah Israel, Teacher of The Israel, Church of Jesus, Gary, IN.

I try to get up every morning and praise God. I pray and thank him for his blessings and I always pray for my husband and children and grandchildren. Serving God and my family are two of the most important things to me and I hope if you are reading this and you are NOT close to God that you seek the Lord and ask Him in your life. I had to share with readers what one of my teachers, Bro. Elijah Israel shared on Facebook with the news of Kobe Bryant, he shared to scripture Ecclessiates 9:2. The media had reported Kobe had a strained relationship with his mother and I know she is so sad she didn’t try to mend the relationship and enjoy her son, and grandchildren as much as she could. This makes sense why the bible says in Ephesians 4: 26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: – because no one knows what the next day will bring. 

I am praying for all the families affected by the terrible crash. So many celebrities and reports are being shared throughout all media expressing their sorrow and memories of Kobe Bryant.

RIP Kobe, Gianni and all the people who died in the crash.

More responses to Kobe’s death…
