My 90 Day Challenge Full of Challenge's
Well here it is with 25 days left in my first 90 Day Challenge. I am down 36 pound's and although the actual scale reading has slowed down the inches have not slowed down falling off and I love it. Fitting into Pant's that I could not even do the zipper up on and T-Shirts that I could not even pull down over my chest or belly, has me charged up to stay the course. I smile from ear to ear already knowing that the disappointment of last summer that ripped at me for month's will Never Happen again. I took the kid's to Calaway Park in Calgary, Alberta where they have all kinds of rides and entertainment for family. I stood in line for an hour and a half to ride the roller coaster with my oldest and was embarrassed to tears because I could not even fit into the Car and had to be asked to get out of line. This hit me so hard that It at first caused me to hide from life even more. Well those that read my first blog and know that my WHY power comes from my children and how I want to live a long and healthier life for them. I thank the powers of attraction and the courage of the first person to show me Visalus. I am in such a better place mentally and physically and ready to wrap up this first challenge and get right into my next 90 day Challenge. The courage to Overcome Fear and to keep moving forward has been crucial and I am so Impressed with my attitude towards things that would normally in years past have crippled me. I have undergone more then Just a physical Challenge, Started the Winter being surprise laid off from work and Going on to Employment Insurance benefit's which is like $400 a month less then just rent and utility's being so obese and scared of the world that I could not even search for another Job. Started my Challenge to loose weight and to supplement my Meager Income by Building my own Visalus Business. With the hope that after this one last construction season would be a finish of Seasonal Work for me I am a Heavy Equipment Operator and Work 80+ hours a week In the summer time making Huge Money and then Starve through the Calgary Winter's with no work from my employer. Well we just got back to work and after 8 days we got almost a week of rain and no work. Nathan got a terrible ear ache and with all his Ear Tube surgery's I was thankful for the rain days off work. It was still raining had not talked to my boss for 9 days Nathan still at home with his ear ache and my boss calls me to say come to work right now. I say I am at home with my sick son and have no one to watch him he threatens me that If I can not get into work to Haul this piece of heavy equipment to repair shop now that my job was on the line. I again repeated that I had to take care of my son He said F@@ U Jeff and hung up the phone. Texted me 24 hours latter to say you have been replaced and are not needed. Well was not looking forward to working for him anyways so I figured no big deal! Nathan Returned to School two Days latter and I set off to apply for a few Heavy Equipment Operator Job's and my car breaks down In rush Hour Traffic Fuel Pump dead car is not moving. Yeah I like it extreme lol...not but I really do Have a smile on my face because for the first time In years I am not scared to face the world I am able to sleep (sleep apnea does not have a crushing grip on me no more) and have lots of energy. Best Friend lent me money to repair the car, Have only three weeks Of unemployment Checks Left till that is cut off. Next Ei Check $300 short for rent and Yet I still smile. I smile because my body is Positively charged with energy for the first time in Years and I know I will as always figure out a way to rise to the top of this mess. I am staying 100% committed to transforming my health and future and Even with the news From Diane New York that my ex wife's boyfriend was killed in a car crash 4 days ago and Nathan who really liked mom's new guy was terribly upset for the last few days I still Smile. I am able to do that because all this extra time with the children is priceless everyday of My life is truly blessed because Justin, Nathan and Rachelle make everyday the best day ever! I will be just fine, because the courage and the strength and the believe of the soon to be transformation that I happily work towards. Well I will wrap up my entry this time with a short bit about why I am so thankful for the culture Of Visalus and the Vision of the Founders Of Visalus Ryan Blair, Blake Mallen, and Nick Sarnicola because you packed your back office with training video's and success mindset Video's From Leader's Like Jim Rohn and Ambassador's from Visalus and Leaders Like Darren Hardy from Success Magazine I could feel so alone my Upline Sponsor In Visalus Lives 4000 Miles away from me but Yet I am not alone I am in constant feedback and support From So many Leaders From My Upline via Facebook and The Success Library and Training Video's that Visalus packed into their Promoters back office have been key to me becoming courageous! Blake Mallen I have No Idea How I am going to get to Vancouver to see you In three Weeks But I will find a way.
