About Me

My photo
The way I see it, the time is NOW... for change to come & happiness, health & strength to be found. As of 2012, this has only changed in the way that I have stumbled upon an amazing at home business venture that has given me the avenue to ACTUALLY help transform peoples lives. Funny thing is, that's been my goal all along. So now I not only share who I am here but what I do. The fact is that anyone of you can actually find your happiness & success thru allowing the right connections to occur in your life. If you are on my blog... you made it here because you are looking to shift, strive, smile &/or change. Well now, I can help guide you to do any & all of the above thru personal motivation, life changing products with an outstanding reputation & LONG list of testimonials, substantial savings with our shopping annuity & incredible business opportunities to actually call your own... While never having to leave the security of your current J O B! Never be afraid to give something you know nothing about a chance; at least to hear about it. Then you can make an educated decision to pass it up not an ignorant one. The opportunities exist.

Sorry for the delay folks! Had a busy weekend... But I'll make up for the missed recipes today! Oh, and I do have a fellow blogger that has asked me what my resting heart rate is. Just HaVe not remembered to take it when I wake up!! Ugh!!! I will get to it... thank you for stayin' on me I.L. ! ;)

No work out on Friday or Saturday but ToDaY I ran my first 'Cinco de miler' 5 mile run at Montrose Harbor with our 13 year old Brandon! Quite impressed... He stuck with me for all 5 miles at an average 9:27 pace!

Isotonix cocktail this morning and then 1/2 a bagel w/cream cheese before the run with water.

Some gatorade and more water during the run. Then post run... we got a mystery burrito with chips n' salsa. (Needless to say we didn't eat much of that.) But I did eat the churro!! That way my husband didn't eat 3 of them!! :) Scurried back home to hit 'MeatHeads'!! It was a whole household affair and it was great!! Meathead burger n' cajun fries with a Coke Zero... and yes, MoSt of a chocolate shake!!! =) Finished off the night with a slice or two of friendship bread and 1/2 a glass of skim milk. NO MORE FUEL TODAY!!! Blah!!! Lol...

Well, as promised... a few more recipes... Have a great week bloggers!!!
