Well, well, well....

Well, here it is...almost the first of September...and school is about to start for another year. And as usual...I have not kept up to my end of the deal.  I have not posted a single thing all summer!! has been a fabulous summer...and I have been busy!  I vow to catch up and share everything that has been going week! (haha)  No seriously...I will.  The house will be empty and I'll have more time.  Lots of changes happening...

Here We Go.... it is Thursday already!  My intentions were to start blogging faithfully, beginning on Monday...but that didn't happen.  Monday was Day.1. -  This particular Monday...was the first day of "New Beginnings" for me!! The day didn't begin as bright and early as I wanted it to...but I was up before that was a start!!  Ha!  I am really looking forward to all the changes I need to make...and there are LOTS!! Actually...almost everything in my life needs to change!! It's going to be a blast...and I can't wait to get started!!  I'm blogging about it as I go...not because I think my life is soooo fascinating, that people would want to read about it...but because if there is anyone else out there with the same just may help them.  I know from personal experience...reading other blogs has helped me tremendously...and I've gotten some really great ideas and info from them as well!!!  

Some of the things at the top of my priority list are...
  • Lose the 30 pounds I've put on over the past 4 years
  • Get Organized
  • Simplify 
  • Get on a budget
And so on...

I spend way to much time on the computer...but I suspect that will dwindle away as I put things into action.  I find A LOT or really great stuff on PINTEREST!  I found an awesome way to organize my bills, that I absolutely love!!  Trust me...I've tried everything!!  I found the one that works best for me HERE.  This system uses a binder...and I have come to realize...that I LOVE binder filing!!  Sooooo easy to find things when you want it!!  I have a nice big fancy filing cabinet...that I'm going to put all my photo albums in and anything that I want to keep safe in case of fire.  I no longer need it for filing since I discovered binders!! 

My son graduated from high school this year!!  So my life has been consumed with graduating stuff for the past month.  Friday night is his Grad Party...then I'm DONE!!  Well....except for the post I'll have here with pics and stuff.  Once that is behind me...I'm full speed ahead with exercise, organizing and simplifying my life...and building my business (I'll talk more about that later)!!  I am SO looking forward to each and every step of this journey!!  

Peace Out for now!

A New Beginning

WOW!!  It's been 9 whole months since my last post!  It really scares me how fast the time goes by!!  Since the last time I was here...Blogger has changed!  Ironic, isn't it?!?!  I don't like change...but here I am trying to "Embrace" it.  I'm not sure how to use this new blogger just I have no idea how this post will look when I'm done.  I'll have to play around with it a bit I guess (like I have time for that!) of the changes that I'm determined to make (and have been struggling with for the past 3 years) my weight!!  I signed up as a distributor with ViSalus in November 2011.  I instantly fell in love with it!!  I loved everything about the product...and the company!  I've done well with it financially, and I feel fantastic.  But...I have hardly lost any weight at all.  Now, in saying that, I need to make it perfectly clear...that ViSalus IS NOT a "diet" and isn't just about losing weight.  It's a "HEALTH" Challenge.  However, when you treat your body the way you should...and give it the proper will naturally lose weight, IF you need to.  I have been drinking the shakes here and there...and do notice the health benefits...but have been eating whatever I want, around the shakes.  You are not going to lose weight if you are still eating matter how many shake you drink!!!  So...with that being is what my Facebook status said today....

"Ok all my Facebook peeps...I REALLY need your help in keeping me accountable!! It's about time that I become a "PRODUCT OF THE PRODUCT"! As you all know...I have been a promoter with ViSalus and the Body By Vi 90 Day Challenge for a few months now. I've done very well with it financially and as far as my health goes...I feel fantastic. However...I have been cheating on myself constantly, and haven't lost hardly any weight at all. All my customers and team members are shrinking...and I'm staying the same. It's time for me to smarten up...for real!! I start over every Monday...haha. But this Monday (tomorrow)...I'm starting AGAIN...only I'm sticking with it this time. And you're all gonna help me...right?!?!?!? I want you to make me stick to it!! Publicly ask me how I'm doing...ask me how much weight I've lost this week...etc. MAKE me stick to it!! I have a truly embarrassing before photo...the kind that people just love to see. If y'all keep me accountable...I promise to show it with a before/after shot at the end of this 90 Day Challenge. You will really and truly be shocked at what you see!!!" 

I am going to do this!!  This is one "change" that I am definitely going to "Embrace".  I have no idea how many people...if anyone at all...reads my blog.  But I am going to blog about my 90 Day HEALTH and weight loss challenge.  If there is anyone out there...please feel free to comment and give me your two cents worth!!  Being accountable is a huge help for me.  So if I know you're out there...and watching my every move...I won't want to let you down!!  

If there is anyone that would like to join me on my challenge....check out my website at 

Here's to "Embracing Change".

At least it's something.... I haven't been posting everyday!!  I suck at this!!  However, I do work...a lot lately!  And I went away last weekend to spend it with my beautiful mother on her 65th birthday!  This picture is from Christmas 2009, but she still looks the same.  Me, on the other hand...I've gained 25lbs since then!  Just one more thing that I need to declutter! 

Speaking of clutter...I am overwhelmed with everything that needs to be done around my home.  I went around taking pictures of it all, and was going to post it today, but I don't have time.  I will have TONS of before and afters in the days to come!!  Even if no one reads my blog...I'm excited to have it to look back on for myself!!  

I've been checking this blog out EVERY day...and I LOVE it!!  Lots of great ideas!!  I've been picking up so many helpful ideas from Pinterest.  One idea that I love so far, is having a binder. I've been working on mine but haven't decided what I want to call it yet.  I've seen it called the "Household Notebook"....the "Home Management Binder"....the "Control Journal"...stuff like that...but I haven't decided what works best for me yet...but I do love the binder idea.  I was at work one day...and my son called looking for something.  I was able to tell him to go to the binder and flip to a certain section...and there it was!!  Such a perfect system!!

Here I go again....

Oh my...I suck at blogging!!  I haven't blogged anything since April!!  That is really really bad!!  I even forget how to do some of the stuff!! my own has been a VERY busy summer!!  And besides being busy...I have a new obsession....PINTEREST!!  Oh how I love Pinterest!!   I am on a quest to get organized...and I am finding all sorts of great ideas on Pinterest.  I have found lots of new blogs to follow, some online places to order from, some health & fitness ideas (which I need badly).  Oh...and recipes galore!  As I use some of these fun ideas and recipes...I'll be sure to share!! I go again!  I am going to try my best to keep this blog current!!  I think hope my business is over...for awhile anyways.  I have A LOT of things around my house that need to be done, plus, I have about 25lbs to lose.  So, with that being said...I guess I will still be very busy...but doing stuff that I actually WANT to do!!  And doing my best to blog about it!  I'm hoping to someday look back at this blog, and see just how far I've come!!!
