I'm doing a frog entry since there are a lot of Frogs out back lately at night - croaking away. Especially when it rains. Also because there is a book called "Eat that Frog" about procrastination that sounds interesting that was brought up on our call last night. I don't have a procrastination issue though so I won't read it. I do have an overload issue so it means by default it takes more time to get around to doing something, which means that prioritization takes place. I'm a foundation person. A methodical approach to life. The groundwork has to be laid. I've been doing a lot of ground work. Now the real tough parts for me begin.
Anyway, we'll frog it up today in theme at least. So it is true that I have been in a bad mood. I've struggled to pull out of it. I am coming out of it. It started about a week ago when I was faced with a impossible set up that I knew was going to set me up for failure. The situation changed but I was still having residual traumatism (new word, I think) with it. Just afraid it will change back again I think. (Dramatic I know. It was dramatic for me!) Normally I am happy go lucky through tough spots, but this was just unacceptable to me and there is a LOT surrounding all of that that just adds up exponentially and brings back a lot of negative vibe. Then other negative things started happening on top of that. A person can only take so much negativity in one week before your negative (devil) self starts to say bad things about yourself. (I am no good, I can't do anything right, blah blah...wah wah...violin comes out and all. )
All I can say is:
Even God is having a tough time breaking through all this negativity, lol. Apparently! No disrespect to God, I'm mainly joking here. But the negativity is really thick so...I'm sure he's having to put some power to it. Thank goodness HE has been there for me. God gets the glory for answering my prayer. George has been making some suggestions to me that "It's time to do something different". I just don't think so yet. But he is the one that has to "deal with" me! lol
I did have a conference call with our team last night and it is so refreshing to be a part of group. I can't tell you how good it feels to be around positive people who help one another in this dog eat dog world of people that work against one another it seems. Just so refreshing to have an hour with these folks. Videos on and microphones on. Face to face. It was interactive. What a blessing. Usually we have been at the movies on Tuesday night so I was glad to participate this week instead of having to listen afterward. George is a willing partner and very supportive. I appreciate that. What I'm doing takes time and effort and is not easy. To talk with those who did the same and are successful b/c of it and are showing you that, is just priceless. The only way to lose is to quit.
So someone posted a comment about the shakes that I do and the sweetener that is in them. So I wanted to set the record straight. I did not approve the comment to post b/c it was not accurate. But I did want to let you know that the shakes are natural. Copied this down below from the website b/c it says it better than I can. There are no artificial sweeteners in the shake. There are scientists that work on these along with the nutritionists. And they also inspect a sample from each and every shipment of their raw goods before putting it into manufacture, so that they can make sure what they bought is exactly what is going in. I've been impressed with this Q C process. But if someone has their mind made up that something doesn't work for them. There is no changing it. If someone doesn't like something it is their prerogative. I can only share what is working for me and so many others. We put much WORSE things in our bodies when we eat burgers, fried foods, and even the oils in the salad dressings. If only we scrutinized that as good as we do the healthy things! Those types of fats is what causes all the heart problems. But we all love the taste of all these things. Including myself. I love our shakes. I cannot do without them. But shakes and nutrition is not something that everyone seeks out. And not everyone understands what a person does after they have been on them for a few days. So I get that and I won't force it on anyone, which is why I'm not giving the shake gift anymore now that I realize it. All I know is that I notice the 21.5 inches of fat which is equivalent to a tire tube being dropped off my body with our system. And I do not miss that fat! All that said, I would never force anyone NOR expect anyone to use something or eat something just because I wanted them to. I am disappointed because I really wanted Mom and other family members to feel as good as I do. But I will defend the shakes and false info. And don't want misinformation floating around family and friends that might have otherwise been helped but wasn't because of the misinformation. So here it is:

That said, I need to get to work. Running behind. Always too much going on. lol
