So I moved / imported this blog over to Tumblr… will try that for awhile… if I decide I don’t like it, I’ll be back here… maybe I’ll update both.. hahaha Here’s the tumblr link:http://nicolereneeg.tumblr.com/
I find it very interesting quotes about when life hands you lemons, make lemonade or drink tequila or whatever… same with “it’s not about getting a bad hand, it’s how you play it”… or something of that nature.. Anyway, I was dealt a really crappy hand a couple weeks ago.. I am playing that hand as best I can, but boy it’s difficult. It’s common knowledge that the kid and donor don’t really get along.. well, long story short (and cutting out the BS) the kid and me are pretty tight nowadays… we are together all the time. Bosom buddies.. Joined at the hip.. Besties.. and really, I wouldn’t have it any other way. Any of you have ANY clue how much a growing 11 year old GIRL eats?! Holy birdcrap batman! (and HOW does she stay so skinny!?!?!) Anyway, she’s like I said 11, almost 5’3” now, and wears the SAME SIZE shoe as me.. really!?! I think we are gonna do just fine together.. I like the “full custody” thing.. has a nice ring to it.. 😉
Well, this blog has been going on now for a couple years… hhmmm amazing I’ve stuck to something this long.. well, off and on, but still.. 🙂 Anyway, I’m thinking about changing the whole layout of my blog.. might have to do that today. Hope all 3 of you are doing well. I couldn’t be happier.. Well, if I win the lotto on Friday, then Yes, I’ll be MUCH happier, but that’s about what it would take. Things are going so well.. The Kid is still having MAJOR issues with the donor. They just DON’T get along.. 😦 There is only so much I can do to help her. I’m glad she’s back talking to the counselor every week at school. Third party to just “listen” to her so she can dump all her feelings on someone that doesn’t know anyone she does. She really likes it. We’ve had a few important “mother daughter” talks recently and we are very close.. That Kid just melts my heart…
Anyhoo… so my business is taking off.. I realize I have some time, but I need to get 4 promotions (levels) in order to quit my day job… I’ve already moved up one, and am HOPING to move up another level like THIS WEEKEND… Fingers Crossed… I want to get to DOUBLE DIAMOND like yesterday!! 🙂 I have enough going on, I’m making the same money as a few levels up!! 🙂 This has been such a blessing in my life… it’s amazing.. I love how happy I am in my life now.. Apparently I am going to head up to Bullhead City, AZ to do a wrap party… Hey, I said I’m DETERMINDED… 😉 Finally, just “being me”. 🙂
Happy Wednesday… Cheers n Beers Y’all ❤
So I think I’m gonna get back to blogging again… not that anyone is listening.. but it feels good to ME. 🙂 The kid turned 11 this week… Amazing.. was thinking back to the day that little alien was born.. Weird how it seems like yesterday, but also like a lifetime ago… She’s so rad.. She’s been doing a LOT to help me get this IT WORKS business up and running.. I get to pay her, give her a W2 and write it off… more grooviness haha.. So, I’ve been working this 2nd (or is it 3rd job, with the MOM job thrown in there…) since December. OH EM GEE I’m in love.. I haven’t been this happy in like ever. It’s kinda nice.. I’m meeting SOOOO many new people, and making some great new friends.. The best part is Changing peoples lives. What an amazing gift. I know I’ve made some life long friends on this short journey. I mentioned that the Kid told me that I have until August to be making enough money to quit my day job.. (I dream about that EVERY NIGHT!!!) I am going FULL STEAM AHEAD in order to accomplish that goal BEFORE August.. I’ve hired 3 people now to my “Team”.. I explained to the Kid what “Network Marketing” is last night.. she caught on pretty quick.. she asked how old she has to be to become a distributor.. She’s just rad. Anyway… since I started as a distributor back in December, things have progressed rather rapidly.. I’ve been doing like 2 wrap parties (or more) per week.. CRAZY! I’ve hired 3 distributors now, who are taking off nicely. I’ve done my first Expo already which was a lot of fun.. I have another one, a wedding expo in March.. I’m also going to set up the booth at the Irvine Mud Run in May… THAT should be way fun!!! One of my dists is going to be IN it so her team will be wearing our Tshirts to represent! Way to go!! I’m still looking for a few more distributors asap, so when you decide that you want to help others become more healthy, and could stand to have some extra money… let me know.. I’m here to help. MUCH love to all 🙂
“The only real failure in life is the failure to try.”
So earlier this year, I was going to the doctors and having blood work done, because there is NO WAY I could weigh 175 lbs and NOT be pregnant! I mean, COME ON! Apparently there was nothing wrong with me, (albeit, they wanted to do a lobotomy… but I digress..) blood was fine, and I was instructed to “change your diet”… Well, I did! After breaking my back and my leg (2 years ago now!) it’s not all THAT easy for me to exercise… I thought perhaps the extra weight was contributing to some of my back pain as well.. so fast foward to the end of march… STILL weighing 175 lbs (up and down +- 3 lbs) I “stumbled” upon a website called…. it works. Now, I’ve spent over the last year or so about $1000 trying to find something to HELP me lose weight.. I wasn’t looking for a “quick fix” or anything like that… they don’t work.. duh. But on the flip side, changing my diet, and walking through the badlands by the house, didn’t either. So I decided to try ItWorks I mean, why not.. I’ve tried EVERYTHING else under the sun.. (i.e. Isagenix, Nexagen, JenFe patches, Arbonne…. I could go on, but you get the picture)
I can’t believe how long it’s been.. I think since I got on to the dreaded Facebook, I kind of stopped doing anything here.. I want to change that. I’m also getting into a new business venture.. one that I can actually attain for now. It’s just something that I’ve already experienced and I KNOW works, and I can make some extra money to support the kid.. I just told some people in my office, and they are rather upset with me for NOT telling them about this a while ago… Seems I was overweight at the beginning of the year… I went to the dr, he said “exercise”.. Well, with a broken back and a once broken leg, not really EASY… I tried EVERYTHING.. I weight 175.2 at my max. 😦 Not a fun place to be at.. So after trying a multitude of things, I decided to try these products and see how it works.. I know that I am MUCH less tired.. and I’m not as sick as I usually am the last few months.. AND.. I’m down to 151lbs.. since the beginning of the year… not too bad 🙂 I’ve also shrunk more that 2 1/2″ all over my body.. I’m fitting into jeans that I (wisely) saved from years ago, that I grew OUT of… Now I have kinda new jeans to go with the smaller body.. I am happy.. I’m having a “Wrap” party in two weeks to “show” these girls how great it works, and start my business from there.. I am REALLY excited… Wish me luck.. I get to help people be happier and healthier and skinnier, and make a little extra money for the kid.. Win Win..
Hope everyone has been doing well… Thanksgiving has come and gone, I hope everyones was fantastic.. Mine was great.. went to the desert (of course), deep fried a turkey, rode quads, etc.. same ol same ol’. Just found out some good news today, I’ll share in a couple weeks… 😉
Or rather, Lack thereof. It really astounds me at the ability some people have to display such a HUGE, TITANIC, GINORMOUS lack of respect for others. Let alone for themselves. I’m guessing it takes a big lack of respect for yourself, in order to not have the ability to give it to others. It makes me sad to see people act this way. Especially when it’s BLATANT and they do it on purpose. I can’t figure out why people feel the need to lie, and hurt others on purpose. There is only so much of it a person can take. Well, that and being taken advantage of. Hospitality. I guess some people are just shitty assholes, and greedy and selfish. I used to feel sorry for that, but when you realize they are doing it purposefully, forget it. You are just a shitty jerk.
It was too good to last. I tried. What do you do… Getting rid of all of the bad people in my life.. seems to be working out pretty good too. We’ll see. I think.
If someone doesn’t like your behavior or your actions, and you are aware of this, why would you KEEP DOING IT????
