During the past few weeks, I have had a tough time sticking with ItWorks, especially when the products don’t work for me, and the fact that I had been at it for almost 6 months and I really wasn’t growing. It became more time consuming and not really worth the effort. I also wasn’t thrilled to be pushing products that I couldn’t personally endorse for various reasons. I am not saying that it’s a scam, but it just wasn’t for me. Due to my food intolerances and sensitivities, some of the products irritated my system and set it off. I am still a distributor if anyone wants anything, I am just not actively promoting the products.
I had joined Scentsy as a consultant last month, beings that I had been a customer for a year prior to joining, and actually loved the products prior to joining. I joined solely because I love the products. The money I earn is just an added bonus, I would be buying the products anyway.
Lately I have also been learning about essential oils, and the power they have to help your body, I figure I might as well give them a try, especially the blends to help your immune system and that help with allergies and that kind of thing.
Taking care of myself and being the best I can be has been at the top of my list of things I need to do for a while, I am finally doing it, and pursuing what I am passionate about.
For those of you who have been following me, for the Gluten Free and Dairy Free recipes and stuff, that is not going anywhere. I am just incorporating my new desire and journey to get fit.
I will be writing about what programs, classes and other forms of exercise that I am doing to work toward achieving my goals.
Right now I am using PiYo from Beachbody, and will be starting the 21 day fix from Beachbody in a couple of weeks. I also love going on walks, and hiking. I am also wanting to get into rock climbing, which I am hoping PiYo and losing weight will help me with.
I am really working on eating healthier, which is something that I struggle with maintaining. Though I am trying to bounce back from having an off day or a bad food day a lot better, and not letting one bad day completely derail the progress I have been making.
I have come to a point in my life where I am fed up with being overweight, and having it get in my way, as well as hindering me from doing what I really love doing, being outdoors. I love being outdoors going hiking and on adventures. Both activities would be so much easier and more enjoyable if I was more fit, and thinner.
I also want to be more flexible and toned, especially since I have an old ankle injury that never healed properly. I had badly sprained my ankle when I was 15 (in my freshmen year of High School), and then I went to marching band practice that same day, and then had marched in a 4.2 mile parade on it within that same week. It has been weak and prone to re-injuring ever since. I have sprained twice more since then. I did have it checked out and x-rayed well after the fact, and there was no evidence of it having been fractured the first time I injured it, so it was concluded that it was a very bad sprain. I am hoping that with PiYo, it will help strengthen my ankle a bit more so it is not as weak as it currently is.
