6WS-It Works

Moving my body and Income Forward

If you have been following my blog for awhile you know I have been working hard to lose weight. Well, I have now completed thirty days of tap-out. I have been on Chris Powell's food plan for almost a month. But the most exciting new change, for six months I have been taking health products from
 It Works Global. 
 I love the products, they have a wrap that is awesome. Greens, which is eight servings of fruits and vegetables and gives me the energy I would normally attempt to get from a cup of coffee. And now I have taken the leap to become a  

It Works Entrepreneur.     

With so many products out there this was not something I just jumped into. I wanted to make sure I love the product first. I mean how do I sell a product if I myself don't believe in it right. But then one day, I'm driving to work, and I realize that I've only been drinking my, "Greens" this particular morning and I don't have the desire to pull over and go to sleep. This is a very new sensation for me because for the last few years I'm exhausted to the point where I could pull over and take a nap on the side of the road. Today, I'm feeling great. Energized and ready to go. I also decide I don't need my coffee that is steaming in a cup next to me.  I worry slightly that I will pay for this choice at some point in my day. 

But, I don't. The entire day I was great. No caffeine headache and no desire for my afternoon get me through coffee. I'm actually feeling great. But I still waited you now just in case this was a one day fluke. However, after six months the affects have not changed. I have tried multiple products and love them all. 

Because of this, I'm eating healthier, exercising regularly and my sister and I have signed up to do mud runs and 5k obstacle courses. Something I would never have done without this product. Thank you It Works you have changed by life!

Linking with 6WS because they're are amazing blogs everyone should see.
