Hold on, pain ends.

I was running errands today and found myself next to the Denver Bronco stadium. Of course I gawked like a tourist, but I didn't wreck or cause any accidents as far as I know, so life is still very good! ;) I was cruisin' along and saw some interesting shops so I stopped and browsed. I visited with employees and customers alike and then went merrily on my way. I was grinning like a fool over the fun I was having when I suddenly remembered an incident from my past. It was 1999 or so and I was living in a small town in Montana, population 250. The nearest "real" grocery store was 40 miles away in the largest city In Montana (pop 90k) and since we couldn't live on food from the 7/11 store, I had to shop there once a month. I hated the trips for many reasons. The traffic was horrible (in comparison to Bob, MT) and it terrified me. I'd drive to my destination, park quickly and run in, literally grab what I needed and then out again as fast as I could, saying very little to anyone. By the end of the trip I was always a basket case and it took me a few days to decompress and get back to "normal". Normal, mind you, was a continual state of fear and sadness. I hated myself and unconsciously felt that anyone who could possibly like me, (let along love me) had to be seriously flawed themselves. I pushed people away and hid myself away from anything that might possibly hurt me, which to me at the time was absolutely everything! I let very few people in through my walls, and no one knew the real me. I was absolutely convinced that if they did, they would run away screaming and never return.

It was late fall, and I was heading to Billings. As usual, I was anxious and afraid. I hurried through my list was shaking like a leaf when I finished my stops. A voice in my head was screaming "get out of here, get out of here, get out of here, get out of here, over and over in my head! I was pulling out of a business with this thought echoing madly in my mind, when I heard a loud car horn and the sound of brakes on pavement. I remember tensing for the collision and then nothing. The next thing I remember was waking up on the couch at home. I had no recollection of the past hour and a half or of how I'd gotten there. As soon as my head cleared, I ran out and checked the car for damage. What a huge relief that there was none! 

To this day I have no idea what happened, but I am very grateful that there was no accident. I went to my doc the next day and was put on medication. I took those meds for years, living a life free from episodes like that, but it wasn't a full life. I know that they are a must have for some folks, but I was not one of them. I felt cheated all of the time. Sure, I was spared from being soul wrenchingly sad, but I was also unable to be ecstatically happy about anything and for me, living in the middle zone of emotion was not all it was cracked up to be. After a few years that became intolerably dull but the fear of returning to "those" days kept me faithful. Finally, twelve years later, in 2011, I was able to heal my body, which in turn, healed my mind. Now I am dashing into stores, chit chatting with anyone and everyone, and driving all over Denver, a city with a population of somewhere around a million, without being concerned or worried at all! I cannot begin to express to you how grateful I am for how my life has turned out. For those of you in pain. Please remember to H.O.P.E.

It has been an awfully long time since I posted and I apologize about that!  I have been a slacker for sure and I will try to do better so that my fan (ha) won't have to wait so long for updates.

A lot has happened, all good!  I am still in Colorado, though traveling much more and loving every minute of it.

I recently bought a new car, not because I wanted to, but because my Nissan Altima was working it's way towards another new transmission and since it is almost out of warranty, I traded it in on a new Honda Accord Sport!  Zoom zoom!! Having my own business really rocks!  Not only can I afford a new car, I also have the time freedom to enjoy it!

As for my traveling, I am currently in Montana at the family home. Working with my team here and helping out my brother.  He gets a bit lonely and it's nice to be able to spend time with him.  Queen Emily has decided that she no longer wants to travel with me so she is at home with Wolf and her furfriend Willow. She is still as spry as ever at age 14 and a real love bug! So grateful for her continuing good health and Wolf has now lost 190 pounds on my products too, so life is really, really good!

You'd think after driving 9 hours to get here, I'd be ready to take a break, but as soon as I woke up the first morning I took a drive and walk and took these photos.  I just love my new car, it is fun to drive!   Pretty awesome scenery, don't you think?

In other news, I am still doing amazingly well!  After being sick for most of 25 years, it feels incredible to be this healthy, vibrant and energetic!  Lucky, lucky me that I found a solution.  I don't think I'd be alive if I hadn't.  It was going that badly.  So grateful for that as well and so grateful for anyone who is reading this.  I appreciate you!

And it keeps getting better!

Wow, it has been 3 years since I started a wellness program and every day seems to be better and better. It's so odd.  Before I was resigned to a life of chronic, daily pain and depression.  The meds, of course, had made me gain a lot of weight and nothing I did seemed to help.  I was resigned to being overweight and miserable, hiding behind a computer the rest of my life.

Things are so incredibly different now.  I am healthy and feel truly alive for the first time since my 20's. I take advantage of the income opportunity, but a lot of people don't. Many people sign up and save money, but a bunch also buy retail and that is fine too.  However you get these truly amazing products into your body, just get them in there. Here's why you need them:  It's not hype, it's not a ploy to get you to buy the products, it's the truth.

My life has been transformed. I was taking 7-8 medications every single day for a myriad of health problems.  The side effects were life threatening and I was getting no real relief.  FOUR days on the products and my pain was at least 50% better.  A  month on the products and I was weaning off all medications.  Six months in I was down 104 pounds, 9 months later I had released 165 pounds and my health, for lack of a better word, was (and is) perfect.  Aside from a knee injury, I have felt fantastic physically and I haven't had a cold or the flu since i started.

Why did I get such fantastic results?  Because I replaced 2 meals a day with superfood, ate a few snacks during the day and ate a healthy supper. Our bodies are STARVING for proper nutrition.  Absolutely dying because of it.  Flood your body with nutrition and it can do amazing things.  The body is a miracle when it is properly fed.  You now what happens to your car when it gets bad runs like crap.  Well SO DOES YOUR BODY and it is a much more sensitive machine than your Mustang.  Fuel your body, what you put in it does matter!

I have hesitated to post much about this before, but a friend of mine, who has been on product for about a month, said I wish I had heard about this years ago.  I would be where you are today, rather than just beginning my journey, so it made me decide to post.  I'm sharing this with you because I care about you.  You truly have nothing at all to lose by trying these life changing (and saving) products. They are 100% money back guaranteed.

I share because I care. was a gift to me and I want to share it with you.

I'd also love to share more health tips with me so please "Like" my page on Facebook!  It is updated every few hours, and it's not just about health, it's about LIFE!

Much love to you all.

Sometimes you just have to move it, move it!

Whew!  We are finally moved!  I have never been so happy to be done with anything in my life! We moved from a 2 bed/2 bath condo in South Denver to a 4 bed/2 bath/2 living room and a bonus room house North of Denver and I for the life of me cannot figure out how we got all of this stuff in there!  Anyway, it is done and we are here, nestled into the wonderful little town of Wheat Ridge, CO, population somewhere around 30,000.  It's right next to Arvada and the heart of Denver, but you would never know it.  The neighborhood is quiet and established and the house, well it's a gem. It was build in the 50's. It has an awesome front and back yard, garage and carport and a fully fenced yard with 2 sheds!  Our neighbor, a neat lady in her mid 60's says the first four houses on the block were build by the developer and have upper end finishes, including the really cool ceilings in the photo here, beautiful original hardwood floors and all kinds of detailing.  We just LOVE IT and the best thing of all?  My son's commute went from up to 2 and a half hours a day round trip to less than 30 minutes.  Life is good!

I guess the day I am able to scroll through this blog and not cry my eyes out is the day they will bury me.  I absolutely love life and all that it entails, but the ending of life is something that I have a really difficult time dealing with and today is no exception.

Yesterday I drove from Denver, where my son, Emily and I are living, to Montana, to visit my brother.  On the way, I found out that my son's paternal grandmother had passed away.  My son hasn't been very close to his dad's side of the family for the past 13 or 14 years, and he hadn't seen her for at least that long, but there's no denying when you lose your last grandparent, it's difficult.

Wolf is doing alright, he says, but I know it's hard.  I just wish I could take the pain away.

Now here's a cute picture of Emily and my son's cat Willow to remind us how awesome life is.

Something from Nothing!

I think this is really cool!  This billboard located in Lima, Peru, produces around 100 liters of clean water a day (about 26 gallons) from nothing more than humidity, a basic filtration system and a little gravitational ingenuity.
