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.

ONLY day 8 in the 12 week challenge

Not too shabby...

David is down a whole 32lbs from his highest weight ever!! (25 of those lbs. since the beginning of the year!!) And we are NOW starting with some dietary supplements that are meant to help rewire the metabolism. He has COMPLETELY cleansed his pallet with a rigorous detox, changed his eating habits entirely already AND about to step up his work out routine from 20/30min 3x a week and some basketball on the weekends to basketball on Sunday with the boys AND more intense and frequent work outs during the week.

His mind set is in a place that I have never witnessed before in our 26 years together.
I am so very proud of his efforts and accomplishments thus far that I'm teary eyed trying to get through this blog post.
At this point, whether they choose him or not in June as the challenge winner, he is already a winner to me and our children.
Keeping on this road to maintaining his overall health and living everyday to it's max with our children is a BIG PRICELESS WIN!

...BUT, I cannot tell a lie. To witness him up on stage receiving a $15,000 check for all of his hard work, dedication and determination being acknowledged is a dream come true for me.
Little 'ol me... a woman without a degree, mother of six, wife to my high school sweetheart, mentor and motivator to all that are willing to listen about the importance and simplicity of a healthier, stronger and happier life.
THAT would sensationally validate who I am, what I do and who I strive to be.

Do I need that prize to feel good about myself?! ARE YOU KIDDING ME???
With all of the over abundance of blessings that my life is filled with; quite honestly, no.
It would just be an amazing endorsement to ChangeForLifeShoppe the business, Connie Lopez the mother,wife, sister, aunt, cousin & friend BUT most of all, motivation and inspiration to all of you who seek to believe that you can in fact recreate yourselves and find a healthier & happier tomorrow starting TODAY!

NOT TO LOOK BETTER, because living well and working hard at it is NOT VEIN.

It is commendable because it is not the 'easy' thing to do. It is to pride yourself with because you are ensuring to not only look good but to FEEL great and live everyday you have left to the fullest of your ability by doing so.

So that's it for the Detox...

We went ALMOST five days!!! I am so very proud of my baby... I've lost 7 lbs in 5 days and he won't weigh in until Friday (the one week mark)
We move on tomorrow to the next stage of fueling. All the while logging and getting more work outs in.

Felt energized and amazing today. Went out for a light run in the storm!!! It felt amazing!!!
...until I got the dizzies and tossed my cookies (more like stomach acid) almost a mile and a half in... LmBo!

Thank goodness for our boy who was available for my S.O.S. call... Smh..

Well, another piece to our current harmony is that I have gotten our bedroom organized and rearranged!! =D
Our home office is half way done as well and the rest of the house is up to par! (Not an easy task to keep up with while our ChangeForLifeShoppe is growing and all the momma running around is a way if life) But I will be trying to stay on top of everything better. By the end of the week, I should be able to get the girls room organized and done too.

I'll post again soon!!! Have a restful night bloggers! G'nite... :)

Alright... I gave you guys a breather. Today makes 3 Days down and for me, only 1 to 2 to go. For my hubby, 4 to go. Yes, the lifestyle plans are catered to each individuals goals, needs & preferences.

All we've had to eat are veggies & fruits. And a whole lot of h2o. I am feeling great... my baby, well, a bit hungry but he is on a mission to make these three months count as he changes his lifestyle completely!! I am so very amazed at the ability the he has shown just by fueling his desires to be healthier. When I heard, "I just want to sit down and watch t.v. babe. We haven't just sat down to unwind in forever!" I knew that we are headed in the right direction.

Weigh ins done, measurements taken, journaling and logging started & before photos in the file!

I'm not going to lie. It has been a little difficult this time around. Had a 40th celebration today to enjoy family that we've reconnected with and we could not attend the gathering. Just drove out for the service and little ceremony but it was worth seeing all of our family and being a part of it.
Had to stay focused and make sure that my baby didn't have it any harder than he already has it smelling that homemade Mexican cuisine.

Avoiding the occasional Pepperidge Farm DOUBLE chocolate Milano cookie or bite of a homemade toasty super duper sandwich HAS been tougher than usual for me. But if David is avoiding cheating at all cost, it's the very least that I can do...

Now to decide if I am going to make it past the 4/5 day mark or stay strong with him until the 7th.

Weigh in tomorrow may be the deciding factor... but who am I kidding?! I highly doubt that I can leave him alone in the detox week, even for those 2/3 L O N G days. =D

Check in with you in a day or two...

Have a fantastic week bloggers!!!
