I had planned to do Tabata this morning before our trip to Arkansas, but my friend who teaches the class has the flu along with her 2 little girls.
Up at 7am, doing my Thrive and feeling really good. Well its packing day and travel day. I've got laundry and cleaning od the house, as well as packing. We leave this evening.
I got everything done and we hit the road about 8pm. Kids packed and loaded!
Finally passed out around mid-night in the front seat.
I made sure I packed my 3 part system in my shaker and had it in the front seat for in the morning.

Thrive Day 3
June 29, 2014
out the door at 6:30am for a morning run! I'm a little sleepy!
5 Miles are done!! I feel AMAZING!
Day 3, HERE I AM!
I slept great last night! I'm up at 6am and ready for a good run with James and Ashley! We managed 5 miles with Ashley. James got there before we did and have completed 1 mile. I'm a little jealous. I could have gone for another mile, but Ashley was struggling. No worries! I'm here to help her and encourage her! So I'm good for 1 mile!
I'm feeling good and getting things done. I do blog reviews for products and I have been able to focus today and get caught up before our vacation.
I'm really excited about going on vacation and will definitely be taking my Thrive with me! I have plenty to take with me and have everything I need on hand.
One hard thing about being on vacation is staying motivated to run! I was on a great routine and running all the time. We went to Arkansas for 1 1/2 weeks and I ran one day that we were there. That was it. Came home and kept saying "I'll run tomorrow". It was so hard to get back into the swing and I was just going here and there and didn't have a steady routine. Thats not going to happen while I'm gone! I'm determined to stay on track and keep running and eating healthy as possible.
I've got Tabata tomorrow at 8:30am, so I'll sleep in until 7:30am. I love Tabata. If you've never done it, it's awesome and you get a GREAT workout! It's a HIIT workout or High Intensity Interval Training. Love it! I always feel it the next day!
It's so weird that I'm excited about having Thrive in the morning and I'm excited to get up so early in the morning and take on the world. Yeah, thats not me normally at all. I like my sleep and I've always had a hard time with taking something daily. I always forget, ALWAYS forget!
Well, I'm off to finish up my blog reviews! Then I've got to start packing and preparing to leave tomorrow evening! I'm PUMPED!

June 28, 2015
3 miles done with my neighbor
4 miles done with Friends
Up at 6:30am and doing my Thrive! Yep! It's Day 2 and I'm out the door to get 3 miles done with my neighbor. It was a good morning and I'm feeling good!
I get a text from my friend James and Ashley wanting to go for a morning run. I said BRING IT ON! Lets do this! I'm out the door 40 minutes later and we get 4 miles on the books! It's always nice to have friends who want to run with you!
Now onward to the rest of the day! I'm feeling fantastic and I'm excited for the rest of the day. My husband and I have a lot of things to get done before we take our trip to Arkansas in a few days to visit his family. Time to get those travel things, the rest of our camping gear, and last minute things. A day of shopping!
Well, I had a great day! No mid-day napping, getting things done and feeling good. I'm excited and looking forward to tomorrow morning and having my Thrive! Oh yes! I'm excited about Thrive!
I'm in bed about 10pm and out not to much longer after that! Sometimes I have a hard time falling asleep and sometimes I don't sleep too well. So we will see how tonight goes!

Week 1 of my ReStart Up to Running!
June 8-12, 2015
Well I fell off my own weight loss band wagon. Got a little discouraged and then it got hot and I always had an excuse.
Yes, I am the Queen of Procrastination! I come up with a reason on why I'll do it tomorrow. I have always done that. I drive myself crazy with my procrastination.
Well...I havent been on the scale for a while and wanted to see how much I weighed. Yikes! 191! That hurt!
A while back, a friend (Ashley) had asked me how did I get into running. I told her my story. You can read about it here on my blog.
She said that she would love to start loosing weight. I gave her tips on what I have personally done to loose weight when I was doing really good last year.
We started walking on Tuesday this week. 6:30am to start the day walking. It was hard but I got up and we went for a walk.
The one difficult thing of having a new partner is that she is over weight and is not active at all. So walking 4 miles was a bit of a struggle for her.
My struggle was walking slow. I felt like I was strolling slowly through Wal-Mart. I like to get my heart rate up and walk fairly fast.
However, we were able to chat and get to know each other better. Ashley did a great job and I was so proud of her!
We took Wednesday off for her to recover.
Thursday we went a tad farther and almost did 5 miles but not quite. It was another slow walk for me but thats alright. Ashley will get fast as her body gets use to movin' and groovin'.
Friday Ashley wanted to try running. I'm all for running. Ashley started out really good. She started running before me. I let her get a good ways away before I started running. I saw she was starting to slow down and starting to struggle. I can up behind her, tagged her arm and told her to get to the tree and she can stop. She did it! I was so Proud!
We did a lot of running and walking for 3 miles. I asked her how she was feeling and if she was ready to stop or wanted to keep going. She said lets do one more since we've been doing 4 miles anyway.
Off we went. We did more walking and talking than running. I could tell she was getting tired.
We finish mile 4 and she said, "Lets do one more and make it 5". I said "Lets Do It!".
I was so Proud of Ashley! She totally rocked! She struggled and pushed through it. She totally rocked it.
On our way back to the car, she asked me if I was ready for tomorrow morning! I told her I would be out of town but I'm cheering her on while I'm gone!
I never have a partner that I stick with when I run. I always feel like I'm holding them back. I actually had fun keeping up at Ashley's pace. I was able to motivate her and keep her going. I felt really good helping her out. I am faster in my walk and faster in my run, but thats ok! I'm here to help her right now! She'll get there!
I'm so glad I'm getting back into the swing of things! I need to get my booty in gear and get moving again!

What is this patch?
What does it do?
Give me the scoop on this!
Continue Reading my Blog to find out more!
Do you want to take a TON of different supplements and vitamins?
This is the Thrive System! Its so simple!
1. Take 2 vitamins as soon as you wake up!
2. Wait 20/30 mins and drink your shake with COLD water (make a smoothie and add fruit)
3. Apply your patch and leave on for 24 hours.
Simple Right? Well it is!
So that brings me to Le-Vel Thrive. I asked all kinds of questions. I did some homework and you cant really find anything on the internet about it exactly. So I asked questions. I did a conference call with my now sponsor and a higher up person and asked questions. I got some answers but not really what I was looking for. I was a bit disappointed. I kind of felt like when I asked questions about the product, I wasn't getting a straight answer. I'm a "Give It To Me Straight" kind of person. Don't beat around the bush. So besides wanting to share my experience with Thrive, I wanted to tell about it as well. Give you a bit of an idea of what it's all about!
However, Sandi's (my sponsor/up line) was just very enthusiastic about this and told me how to earn a month free! If you have 2 friends sign up for monthly packages, you get a month free. I wanted to try a 3 day trial she had. So then I can give this a try myself and see results for myself before I believe in this.
One thing with Le-Vel is that you don't do PARTIES! Being a Scentsy and Thirty One Consultant, it revolves around doing parties. This does not! You do need to advertise your product and tell people your story - what has the product done for you! Networking is big! You want to reach out to people and tell them about this new product!
I received a 3 Day Trial Pack. Here is what Thrive did for me!
I got up at 6am to get mile 4 mile run in. I was tired and did not want to get up. I hate getting up early and I sure do hate to run. But I love doing races, so I have to train. I took the vitamins, waited 30 mins and did the shake. After I finished my shake, I put the patch on my chest. Left the house and went for my run.
After my run, I took the kids to the beach. We all got a little sun and sand time. Then we came home.
Now normally, I would have been exhausted by this point, but I wasnt. I was really surprised how fast this worked. I questioned if this system was really working.
Later that night, I went to work. I coach cheerleading tumbling classes at our local cheer gym. I coach in the late evenings and Im usually home by 9pm. At this point Im usually pretty exhausted. I try to be in bed by 10pm.
Im up at 6:30, do the system, out for my run at 7am. I got 5 miles in this morning. Shower and take on my day.
Now normally I'm ready for a nap by mid-day. 2 kids, its summer time and no school. Yeah, I need a nap but was feeling good.
Then I realize its the middle of the day and I did not have my cup of coffee for the 2nd day! What! I forgot to have my coffee again! I'm a coffee drinker, daily! I fill up my 24oz Tervis Tumbler and drink it all. Since when do I forgot to have my coffee? Never! Well I have forgot about it 2 days in a row!
So now I'm thinking to myself, well this is really working. I'm waking up with no problem. I'm motivated to get back into running. This has got to be this system.
Now I need to evaluate what is going on so far.
-Got up and wasnt dragging
-I'm not snacking or craving junk
-I'm feeling good
Ok now. I've only have taken this for 2 days. Can this really be working? I believe it is! I have to sign up and become a Brand Promoter!
I have signed up! Woo Hoo!
Now dont get any crazy ideas. I've been selling Scentsy and Thirty One for 4 years now. I know a little something about direct sales. More on this later.
I got up early and did not sleep well. I'm staying at my sisters and I dont sleep well in other peoples beds. But I got up at 7am. Chatted with her roommates, showered and hit up my Thirty One meeting.
After the meeting, I came back, packed up and got the kids ready for a few hours at the beach.
After the beach, we came back and got ready for the movies.
After that, we had dinner and hung out the rest of the evening. It was a long long day.
Again, I felt great all day, I wasnt tired by midday, specially after having a beach trip.
Being on vacation for the weekend and eating right is hard but it was actually quite easy to do. I didnt over eat or snack.
I am loving that I actually feel good when I get up. I'm not sluggish in the morning or dragging in the middle of the day. I'm also getting a really good night sleep. Which is unusual for me. I don't usually sleep well and toss and turn.
So now lets move on to about the product.
I wanted to show this before I get into the product. Then you know what to expect price wise. Don't look at this as "OMG! That is so expensive!" Let me ask you something...do you get Starbucks, eat out for lunch or dinner, do you buy a soda and snack at the store? Well sit down an figure up how much money you are spending daily and weekly on "extra" things you really don't need. Yeah, you are probably realizing that you DO spend a lot of money on things you really don't need and if you gave up those things, you can spend it on a life changing product and I'm sure you'll have a little extra money left over!
Now Le-Vel Thrive is a Nutritional/Vitamin Supplement program. It's that simple.
Thrive is NUTRITION....not medicine. THRIVE competes with our foods and lifestyle, not any medical issue or treatment. Ask yourself, can you eat broccoli with diabetes? Can you have oranges if you are taking medicine for arthritis? THRIVE competes with lifestyles...whether it's a chosen one (food choices, lack of exercise, etc) or elemental (chemicals in lotions, air, foods, etc). Thrive is CONSTANTLY working to detoxify the body and put back IN what should be in there.
THRIVE is designed to target the weaknesses in your body by potentially filling nutritional gaps, which keep the body from performing as designed. The nutrition you're getting from the 1-2-3 in the morning will replace what is missing and get the body back to operating at peak levels.
Now I have to say that I'm a skeptical kind of person. I don't believe in a lot of this hoopla of magic wraps, magic pills, or magic anything when it comes to being healthy and loosing weight! There is nothing magical out there! I don't care what anyone says. No that pill is not going to help you loose weight. No that wrap is not going to make your fat just disappear. No you can't eat junk and be unhealthy and have some magic product.
Now I'm not trying to bash another companies products. If you want to believe it will work, by all means, have at it! This is just my opinion!
My philosophy is always eat healthy, exercise, and you'll see the results over time. Weight loss is NOT an over night thing. It takes time and patience.
I really believe in Le-Vel Thrive and the results that it is giving to men and women all over the country! Want to give it a try?
