Why Young Living?

  My own "Young Living" story starts about 4 years or so ago. I was getting a massage and noticed a bottle of Ningxia Red on the shelf and bought one. The material about all the antioxidants and the "Young  Living" brochures were so convincing. I thought what the hell, if nothing else I would smell good. A BIG plus was the lady that introduced me to  "Young Living" is a R.N., that alone was impressive to me. The more I looked into "Young Living" the more impressed I became. I'm still learning. I became a distributor not to make money but for the savings and bonuses. I can't tell you how it has worked, my friend now, the R.N. I can put you in touch with her and she can explain how it works. Me; all I can say is that after using "Young  Living Essential Oils, the joy and abundance in my life is becoming overwhelming. I have a lot less "things" and money than a lot of people, but I feel like I have a lot more than most. Emotionally, mentally and ( getting there) physically. Its nothing you can hold on to its a feeling of wellness and abundance. In general things have been coming to me more and more when I need them to. This has never happened before, its the power of attraction I've read so much about. NOW, I just want to share it with as many people as possible. It doesn't matter if you order through me or another "Young  Living" distributor.
           I wish you the same feeling of Joy and Abundance that I'm experiencing through these wonderful products.
                   My only wish is for your good health and well being

An update and Meals

             Its been nearly three weeks since I started the new plan and I am seeing a dramatic weight loss. As of this morning I've lost nearly 15 lbs.  I'm walking at least three miles every other day and it is slowly turning into every day.
I am also doing 20 or so push ups, 10 before and 10 after my walk. That number will increase every couple of day or so. I'm drinking 2 oz of Ningxia Red in the morning and 2 oz in the evening, I'm drinking a protein shake a day and a shake of Young Living "Balance Complete" .
     This is all extra. I know I have a slow metabolism. the walking at a brisk rate helps speed it up along with lowering blood pressure and helping with all kinds of other health related issues. The Ningxia Red is just a wonderful antioxidant drink full of energy with out the caffeine and guarana that other energy drinks have, it is much more subtle and works at the cellular level to give you sustained energy over a long period time. The protein drink and the Balance Complete actually help me meet the dietary goals of the new plan. The most important part of this plan is to get your servings of sugar down to 15 grams a day, get 35 grams of fiber and over a 100 grams of protein. Balance Complete is vegetarian, organic, full of vitamins and nutrients, its low glycemic and full of fiber. At first it takes a lot of label reading and comparisons but it doesn't take long to find the things you need to reach these dietary goals.
             I am the worlds worst at getting up and eating breakfast. At this stage in my life I wake up pretty early and usually go to bed at a decent time. But I'm the worlds worst at waking up and drinking coffee for  a couple of hours before eating. Now by the second cup, I'm drinking a shake or eating a bowl of high fiber/low sugar cereal.  I've worked at night in restaurants for years. Although its been several years now I still like to eat a heavy late dinner. I'm eating some what earlier and lots of protein and fiber. If left to my own devices I'll snack a little and maybe eat one or two real meals a day. THIS IS TERRIBLE! My Mom said a few years ago that my body was in starvation mode and I think she was right, as Mothers usually are.  I was never hungry back then and often times wondered why I wasn't hungry. Now I eat 5 small meals a day some no bigger than a bowl of fruit or a bowl of cereal.  I seem to have more energy ( which will happen with weight loss any way) but  I'm losing weight and now if I don't eat a little something or drink a shake every 3 or 4 hours. I actually feel hungry! It actually a new sensation. Its enjoyable to eat again.

The Power of Music

                  Music is great it can be motivational and uplifting it can make a struggle easier.
        It was a beautiful spring day today and this afternoon I walked. For the first time I carried a pack with somewhere between 10 and 12 pounds. It was also the first time I took my I-Pod. I usually like to walk and ponder on things, but I thought what the hell. I had bought some new head phones on a recent trip to NYC and hadn't really used them much, maybe I would get a good work out. I turned the I-Pod to shuffle and started out at the usual quick pace I've developed. The first half is all up hill and although I kept my pace, I was soon huffing and puffing. I have a minimum of three miles but I usually do a little more even if its just a dozen steps or so. Today the extra weight was giving me an excuse to do just the minimum, at that point the music was good but wasn't really getting me going. As I was just about to turn around The Good Ol "Grateful Dead" came on and got me going. Walking to the beat of the "Dead" I walked an extra mile.
