Sample Time! LOL

Well, this week is going by fast.  It's a little bit of crazy.  But I'm getting thru it so far.  Didn't really feel good yesterday but pushed through it.  I'd been awake since 2;30 so I was tired.  But I had product to help me push through it with my Stress formula, vitamins, and an e-shot.  Not having my shakes often and not doing my cleanses, are making me feel worse b/c the inflammation comes back.  I'm having a shake today though.  Chocolate mint and I cannot wait.

So last night I was finally able to get a sample.  There are 3 test tubes and a tupperware (of sorts) to go kit.  That ain't right.  lol The tupperware thing has to be frozen.  That ain't right either putting in your freezer.

So this morning I'll drop off samples to the doctor.  Maybe in a few days it'll shed some light.  I'm tired of trying to figure it out.  And glad to have been able to get the samples done.  You have to be in the right place at the right time and prepped for it. So it was not as easy as one might think, but not as hard either.  Not something I'd care to repeat.

But anyway, glad all that is over and maybe we will have some answers.

There are blessings and I'm focusing on those:

1.  I don't feel "sick" in any way. This is major.  If I were nauseated it would be horrible.
2.  I don't hurt.
3.  This is better than the alternative. lol  That was miserable.
4.  I'm able to go and do. So I can work, travel, and be ok.
5.  The most important thing:  God has got this.

So after work I had to go to Publix and get my Rx (BP meds) so I'd have enough to go to Texas.  So the renewal timing was perfect.  I got a few things for dinner.  We have used most of the quick items from our freezer, anticipating the meat from the cow.  And we are going to be on our trip soon so not stocking the fridge.  And we will be getting a new fridge on the 1st so trying to use up all in the fridge and not stock up.  So I got a roasted chicken cooked by Publix - the last one left - and some salad, and some creamed spinach by Stouffer's and canned cream corn.  I also bought our corn tubes for our corn at work.  We are both taking corn in the crock pot for that as we both have Thanksgiving pot lucks at work on Friday.  I think that is sweet.  Ours is always very sweet.  A time to gather and be thankful for one another, be thankful for our jobs, for what we have, and our work family.  I work with some really great people on a daily basis.

So I'm getting excited about the trip.  It is in sight now!  I've asked Katy if I should bring my laptop.  They have some internet but it's not very strong.  So it may be fruitless to bring it.  I think there is cell service but spotty.

Anyway, I'll at least bring ipad and phone.  If she says the internet is good enough I'll bring laptop.

I've made the decision not to focus on the business any more til after the holidays.  I hardly had time to focus on it during the regular days.  But right now the focus is on taking care of the holidays, the people in my life, my health, my family, and being present in the moment.   That said, I'm here for my team, to help if needed.  I'm here for support.  I'm here to cheer everyone one on.  The good part is that you get to build your business at your own speed.  But for now there is not any use in trying b/c I will just frustrate myself trying to get everything done I want.  Again, I'm here for my team.  And, I have the right to change my mind at any time.  Mid December I may kick in again - we'll see.  I haven't had time to work it like I've wanted.  I have however, done all the base work, learning and sip and samples, and have been "getting the business down".  I'm ready to move into the next phase as soon as I can.  And honestly I need to find out what is going on with me so I can dive in whole heartedly.  Right now I'm kinda stuck.  I've got to make sure that it is not something on the system making things go awry.  I doubt it is but I have to know for sure.  If the docs can't figure it out - I'm going to have to try to figure it out on my own.  And that will mean a long drawn out thing of trial and error and logging - getting off things - starting it back.  So I cannot focus on the business right now and growing my team.  I have to get better first.

Anyway, I best go and finish getting ready.  I have to drop off samples to the doc this morning and then will be in to work a little late this morning.  Not sure what time their office opens.

Anyway, ya'll have a great day!  I'm going for my shake this morning.  Have a good day!


  1. It is the time of year when family does become a priority. Your plate is quite full of everything going on and your heath. That is definitely something to pay attention to. Hope today is a better day for you !

  2. Hi, Sonya! I've been following your blog for years. I enjoy it very much! I'm writing to let you know that I had the same sort of "issues" once upon a time . . . Long story short: it turned out that my problem was due to fructose--not high fructose corn syrup, but fructose, as in a replacement for table sugar. Yes; I innocently "jumped on the bandwagon" when fructose was being touted as a healthful replacement for table sugar. Come to find out, it causes diarrhea in a number of people. I didn't know that at the time. As you are doing now, I had all kinds of tests done--even so far as being hospitalized. (My weight fell to 91 lbs.!!) So, I'm suggesting that you carefully check all the ingredients of your various Isogenix products. (I noticed that your problems began with the last series of things you added.) Even after I stopped ingesting the fructose, it took me MONTHS (even as much as a year) to recover completely, but recover, I did--thankfully!! Good luck, there. J./A.
