The First Three Months

I am finally going to post my Day One to Day 90 pictures, BUT hear me out first!! 

I hesitate to even post pictures because this is not about weight loss! This is not a diet...I am losing weight as a side benefit to getting healthy! 

Some people using this program need to gain weight and they do!! Some people need to lose weight and they do!! Some are serious elite athletes looking for the energy, performance, and muscle building and they find that! But the real point is that our bodies are healthier. Once your body is detoxed, alkalized and craving only what it really needs, the body knows what it needs to do!

I began this journey because I knew this was going to be a really busy school year between bringing all 5 kids back to homeschool them, volunteering with Project HOPEFUL, working Brian's second job with him, trying to restart Antiquity Gamecrafters, being a tutor at Classical Conversations....you get the idea! I needed energy and a LOT of it! 

AND I needed to get rid of my Migraines which had become far more life-interrupting than my Ménière's disease was! My Ménière's episodes were pretty rare, although I still dealt with loud tinnitus  most days and poor equilibrium at night. My migraines were a much bigger problem. I 'managed' them....by filling myself with ibuprofen almost daily.

There were lots of other little things that never seemed like a big enough deal to see a doctor about but all converged to make me feel about 20 years older than I really am.

It wasn't just about being 'out of shape'...Last winter I was running three times a week, and living on a juicing diet when I did this:

Running a 5k with my brother

But all that running and all those power-veggies were not dealing with how toxic my cells were, how much inflammation I was dealing with, how little energy I had, nor how much I wanted to eat a bag of chips and drink a Pepsi.

But that is all changed now. I am a completely different person from the inside out and I never want to go back! 

This year is going to ROCK!!!

Changing the Face of Orphan Care, Adoption and Missions: Commission to Mission

Having a passion for orphan care in all it's forms and in missions have something in common that we would all really like to not have to think about....they are both fueled to one extent or another by funding. How many of us have wished that we had the means to fully fund an adoption that has become close to our heart, or felt the desperation of trying to adopt a child who needed to be home and safe immediately, but have to wait and wait because the funds just are not coming? How many of us would love to take away the financial burdens of missionaries so that they could simply focus on the needs of the people they are called to and never spend a moment's concern about whether they have to return to their homeland to find more support?

I think, too, about all of those families in these types of situations who forego taking care of their own health, or taking much-needed vacations because of the concern that their donors may not approve of how they are spending their money! What if you could relieve that worry because you had the means to do so?!

This is, in part, why I have become so passionate about joining the Adoptagenix team - a group of families using Isagenix products for their families while earning commissions that they can use to bring better health to their adopted children or to children left in orphanages, to fund missionaries, to pay for their own adoptions or those of other families. The compassion and the passion we already have for people all over the world who need Christ's love, the love of a family, and/or nutrition for the millions of needy individuals everywhere can be harnessed to help others - the very best reason to become millionaires: to turn your commission into mission!

Our AdoptAgenix Team has begun podcasting on this very thing and I'd love for you to listen and share this today! You can contact me at jennifergetshealthy@gmail.com if you are ready to learn more!  http://cl.ly/QjjN

Divine Sovereignty: The Fuel of Death-Defying Missions

It's been awhile since I posted anything about missions.  Tonight I was too sick to attend prayer meeting, so I re-listened to this David Platt sermon from last years T4G Conference - I highly recommend it!!
