Christmas 2011

It is that time of year for reflection again but alas I'm super busy and distracted at this time.
I've started doing shakeology through beachbody and love it.
I'm sort of doing body gospel. I haven't exercised in the last two days and need to get my butt in gear.
I'm back at the weight I was when I first started this blog.
sooooo bad of me, but I'm again re-committed.
I will get back into the healthy range and living a healthy lifestyle.
This is what it is all about, living, learning, falling, and getting back up.
I don't tend to write while I am falling but I'm on my way back up again and dusting off the oopsies of the past :)
I do love myself much more than in the past so i'm making life progress hehe.

My Valoro Experience

I was going to start this separate from my normal blog but thought differently. I want people to realize that I am a real person at a real beginning and sharing my experience. Anyone reading this blog can look back and sort of know part of my personality.

Today I answered a craigslist ad to watch commercials for money. It brought me to the Valoro page and I did watch the video. Everything was free so I went ahead and signed up. I also emailed the person who had signed me up sort of introducing myself. She had emailed me a welcome letter upon my signing up. This was key to my interest in continuing. I learned that it was a real person who was responding back to me and she seemed confident in the system.

It's a MLM (Multi Level Marketing) program which you don't have to pay into, just spend time watching commercials on your pc and recruiting others. I did have a hard time viewing my first commercials and my "sponsor" helped me out. Her name is Roshanta and she lives in Fayetteville, NC. I have yet to meet her though do plan to once the company starts paying out and our "village" grows and is successful.

Now I do have experience with MLM from the past. The major difference is with this one I don't have to buy anything to stay active. My parents had taught me the keys to success in this sort of business and I've failed miserably because I don't know anyone who can spend X amount of dollars a month on vitamins or cleaning supplies or calling cards or whatever. I come from a very frugal community where every penny counts and we shop at Walmart and sales to get what we need at the best possible price ever. Though I've failed miserably in the past I expect to succeed this time. I mean who can't commit to watching 70 minutes of commercials a week on their pc in their own time?????
The trick to success is finding the people who WILL commit to watching 70 minutes of commercials a week on their pc and who will get at least a few other people to sign up under them.
Craigslist is a winner. I have been a member now for about 12 hrs and have 5 people signed up under me from one ad and two of them each have one person. That's 7 people in my village in less than a day. Tomorrow I will put another ad in another city and continue from there. I will continue to welcome the people who sign up under me just as Roshanta welcomed me. I will answer any questions to the best of my ability and put together a presentation which will help ensure success to myself and everyone under me.

I'm going to solicit the help of my dad in putting together my presentation. He has worked MLM in the past and has experienced some success. He has seen a lot more success than he experienced. I thank him for being able to show me and help me understand the potential for success and also teaching me to believe in myself and that I can make it happen.

I have zero people I know under me at this time. Everyone is a skeptic, especially those close to you. I can see how it would be ideal for so many people.

Young moms (my daughter) with very young children could do this in spare time while they check up on their facebook pages and forums. They don't have to spend more than one minute at a time watching ads and rating them. It's so easy to keep the page open and just click when you have a minute and collect a paycheck at the end of the pay period.

Retirees (my dad) who don't want to have to answer to anyone else but themselves but need a little something extra to keep them going because social security just doesn't cut it.

Teens (my younger kids, neice, nephews) who spend so much idle time on the pc chatting with their friends anyways and who can't get a job yet because they are too young, still in school, inexperienced, etc. Imagine them bringing in a check at the end of a month in excess of $1000 simply for all their friends and them watching commercials!!!!


Yes this is the start of my presentation which I promise will be polished up.
Love and Prosperity

Well since I wrote what I would do today yesterday, I decided I should follow through with a post on how I did.

I made 2 eggs this morning but only ate one.
I had my banana for lunch and drank my lemonade.
I had my wrap for dinner.
I still have the munchies so need to find a healthy snack, probably an apple or orange.

I did oopsie though. A customer left a piece of peanut butter fudge for me in one of my rooms today, I ate it and it was delicious. Another customer left chocolate covered raisins. I ate those too. Didn't even think of my healthy eating vow until after consumption :(
Anyways I didn't eat any oreos or oatmeal cookies or chips lol.

I did about 12 flights of stairs again today. Love working on the 3rd floor :) I use the stairs whenever possible at work.
I still need to run but know I won't be skipping that.

I was trying to follow a 4 day run week schedule but I just can't run 2 days consecutively. So I'm following the same schedule but just doing it every other day. I think this extends my marathon training from 16 wks to 18 wks but that's OK.

New Day

Tomorrow I will eat well.
I will make my home made lemonade to drink during the day.
I will have an egg with spinach, cheese, and salsa for breakfast
Dinner will be a spinach and hummus wrap
Lunch will be at work and I'll have either a banana or orange or both.

No oreos, No oatmeal cookies, No chips.

I will run at least 3 miles up to 5 miles.

Today I ate horribly, enough said.
I did about 12 flights of stairs for exercise. It wore my butt out!!!
I needed a nap after work. I'm still trying to motivate myself to do some more exercise before bed. Yea, not ideal but at least something.

I spent some time downstairs with Dave and Logan this evening while Dave got ready for going out. He worked on his van that he's selling most of the afternoon. I think it's ready for him to post the for sale sign. I really hope it sells!!
I have to put my car on the road this week. I requested Tuesday and Wed. off work for getting a wall built just to learn that the guy isn't coming Tues. but rather Wed. Sooooooooooo Tues. is car day :)

I'm so happy this past week is over. We were supposed to get snow on Monday so they canceled school. Snow didn't come until AFTER school would have been out so they wasted yet another snow day. Then Tuesday-Thursday were real snow days. Then Friday was a delay. I had to call in late for work on Friday and my whole day was thrown off. Next week Logan has Monday and Friday off. I'm so ready for full weeks of school again.
I got paid again and still haven't even made as much as I used to make babysitting. I'm seriously bummed over this!!!! It's time for a new job. I'm still applying everywhere, trying to get a daytime job but it's just not happening!!! Soooooooooo Frustrated. I thought of asking Amy and Jeremy for my babysitting job back, at least I had weekends off then. AND I made $150/wk which isn't happening at this job. I'm just trying to decide if I hated babysitting more than this.... I'll keep thinking on it for a while. I love not having extra kids ALL. DAY. LONG.
