Welcome to my story!

Thank you for visiting my blog! Here I share my ups and downs of being a mom who has tried working from home, but most importantly wants to be healthy and share it with others. If you can make money while doing it...AWESOME!

I have a passion for LIFE and that includes my family, working out, eating healthy, and sharing what works and doesn't work with others.

I LOVE working with Xango and their new product Favao, it gives me the opportunity to mentor others to reach their health and wealth goals!

Just a quick Training Update!

Not a lot to update on, but I have started tracking my running for my half-marathon training. Last week I ran 3 miles on Monday and Tuesday, 4 miles on Thursday and 4.5 miles on Friday. Today I did another 3.1 miles. My plan is to follow a schedule I found on coolrunning.com!

I still feel fantastic. I started taking 2 oz per day of the Zrii nutritional drink and 1 meal replacement shake (NutriiVeda) a day a little over 2 weeks ago. I can confidently say that these products are tremendously helping me in my training. Before I would run up to 3 miles and my knees and other joints would really bother me. In fact, I started to train for this same race last fall, but my knee was hurting so badly it put me behind. With the help of these Zrii products, I have zero pain in my joints...even after my 4 and 4.5 mile runs last week! I will definitely be tracking this in my blog to share with others who deal with this pain. The pain is not only gone, but I also have more energy throughout my workouts.

My schedule for the rest of this week is to do 4 miles tomorrow and Wednesday, take Thursday off, 3 miles on Friday and 5 miles on Saturday! Will let you know how it goes. I'm also getting very excited because fall weather is FINALLY coming to Vegas. In the middle of this week we will finally be staying in the upper 70's so I can get outside and do some running. I'm really looking forward to that!

I'm still waiting to find 7 more people to join me in the 90 day weight loss challenge before I post any weight or measurements. So if you are interested, please let me know! I will be at my first expo at the Las Vegas Athletic Club on Eastern and the 215 tomorrow (Tuesday, September 29) from noon to 4pm to introduce Zrii to members who stop by. I'm really excited to see what people think of these amazing products!

Here's to another day, one step closer to that half-marathon!!

My Introduction!

I have finally decided to start blogging...why? I have realized I am going through a lot of new 'firsts' and after seeing some other blogs, I decided this is a great way to keep myself on track with the changes I'm making! Some very recent decisions I have made are due to trying to be a better mom, a better role model, and to improve myself for me!

The first change I made was the decision to quit my job as a recruiter. I was working with a great company, but realizing that my passion for the job was no longer there. I really wanted more flexibility to spend more time with my two girls (Sienna is 3 1/2 yrs and Chelsea is 16 mos.), as they were growing up so quick. I decided rather than be a slacker at the job, I would quit. In the mean time, I have found an awesome group of leaders in the Hager Marketing Group who are showing me a new way to make money, and grow personally, with a home-based business. What I love about this is it is the opportunity I have been looking for...I get to be my own boss, take more time with my family, give myself the opportunity to make anywhere from $3,000 to $5,000 to $20,000 or more in monthly residual income and grow individually along the way! I'll tell more details about this throughout my blogging!

Second, I made the decision I want to train for my first half-marathon and since there is one here in Vegas that friends do every year, I thought why not? It will help me stay on track to working out and I really do feel good when I run! It's something I never thought about doing until last year. I had a few friends who have run the half in Vegas the last two years and it got me thinking it would be a cool thing to go for. Plus this year they have changed it to a Rock n' Roll so there's suppose to be some fun entertainment along the way. I will continue updating how my training is going and how I'm feeling throughout...wish me luck!

Third, I have about 15 pounds I still want to lose to get back to where I was before having my two girls. This is combining a little of my other two goals as well! The running and workouts to prepare for the half-marathon will obviously help. Also, the new company I am working with in my home-based business just came out with this awesome new 100% natural meal-replacement shake that is not only great for losing weight, but also targets the inner fat that is SO hard to get rid of, and it gives you more energy! So I will be tracking my weight and measurements throughout this process as well. I am currently trying to find 10 people to join me on this one for 90 days on the shakes to see what results we get. I have 4 looking into it, but still need 10 to get started! Then I will weigh and do measurements...yikes!

So there's a quick introduction to what my blog will be about...basically keeping me on track with my goals I have set for myself and really want to reach! Hopefully you will enjoy seeing my transformation in all three areas.
