A weight loss journey!

Weight loss following a stag!

It was on a good friend’s stag last year in Westport when the reality hit home that the scales were going the wrong way and some weight loss was needed. We had cycled from Westport to Achill on the new Greenway path.  The craic was had and we had stopped off for a swim in one of the nearby beaches for a dip.

Weight Loss
The month before the stag party and when Liverpool nearly won the league – May 2014

I was helping one of the other lads locate his wedding ring that he had lost in the sea. Long story! Standing in the sea, I could see that I had a put on a few lbs and  it was time to do  something about it.

I returned home and jumped on the scales to see that I was touching 15 stone. Alarm bells began to go off. I decided then to make a conscious effort to get down to a more manageable weight. In our business, a benefit is that we have access to doctors, nutritionists, personal trainers etc. So, I started to really take this product seriously and become a product of the product and listening to the advice of these people.

I had been taking Juice Plus+ premium and Juice Plus+ Complete since April 2013 but not taking it correctly in that my nutrition was not right. My diet wasn’t very bad but I realised that in order to make it work, I had to change a few things.

[yks-mailchimp-list id=”97dd47904d” submit_text=”Need More info?”]

One simple change or a few!

A few of the simple changes that I have incorporated is to reduce my sugar intake, chocolate (a former favourite), crisps, bread and to drink more water.

Another simple change, I have incorporated is to never go a day without exercise. I am in college two days per week so I take the bus on these days into town but incorporate a walk during the day. The days when I am not in college, you will see me cycling – dodging cars on the return journey to Lucan and the city centre,

I don’t believe that any of the above are drastic changes . These are things that we can incorporate into our daily lives. Not only have I taken on board what the doctors have said but you also find you learn alot along the way by listening to these people. They do have the qualifications after all!

Happily now on 19th June, I am 13 stone 12 lbs  stone and the scales are going the right way. I am thankful to Juice Plus+ for that and will not be going the opposite way again.

Weight Loss
June 19th 2015 and 1 stone lighter.

It is not a product that many people have heard of but in fact it is around 20 years. You are getting the micro nutrition with Juice Plus+ Capsules   – www.growhealth.ie/juice-plus-premium and the macro nutrition with the Juice Plus Complete www.growhealth.ie/gluten-free

Juice Plus Complete can be added to  make a healthy smoothie or taken with different types of mil according to taste.

I am not where I want to be yet but I will improve and continue to work on building more muscle and definition. Like alot of things, small improvements make a big difference.

At 6ft 1, I don’t need to be losing a massive amount of weight, I just was not happy with the the way things were headed in 2014.

Not just me but my girlfriend said she has lost weight over the last two weeks from 9 stone 7lbs to 9 stone 1lb.  Again, taking Juice Plus Premium and Juice Plus Complete. Needless to say, Leanne is delighted.

Who rules the world?

I think it was Beyonce that had the song ‘Who rules the world?’. She also had ‘Independent Women’. How right she was!

Today I was scrolling through some photos on the phone to tie this back to my latest blog post. If you look in the background of this picture taken in January 2015, I would say that 75% + are women.

These are women who have taken the step to help other people’s lives, improve their own health and ultimately obtain financial freedom. And they all can do it!

From being in attendance that day that there is all  types of demographics represented. Everyone presented with the same opportunity! I believe that women are great when it comes to our business because they simply share information and they like helping others.

Men on the other hand have ego’s when it comes down to it and more than likely don’t like being told there is a far better way of achieving financial independence.

I mention financial independence above and if watch the full link, you might just be pleasantly surprised -www.twentyfourseven.jp ‘Who we are’. 

So if you know any hard working women or hard working men out there, get in touch!

Time Freedom!

//

As well as providing great health and financial independence, one of the main things our company gives back to people is freedom of time.
This may come in various forms.

We see parents who were working long hours and missing out on vital quality time with their children/partners. The Juice Plus+ personal franchise has changed that for so many people throughout the world. The traditional 9-5 is now becoming a thing of the past!

Let’s just look at my typical 9-5.15 job in Ireland. Alarm goes off at 7.00 and I will get my gear ready for the day.I leave shortly before 8 and cycle 13/14km into the city centre. I normally try and do some work at lunch time on the part-time business whether that be meetings/phone calls. I normally return home at 6.30/6.45pm. That is almost 11 hours gone out of 24. That leaves the remainder for eating, relaxing,bathing a child and sleeping. It’s not a lot of time when broken down. 55 hours gone in a week! But what if you could get it back? Some people say it can’t be done but I assure you it can.
What if this time could be used to drop and collect your children from work,start a hobby, see more of your friends,doing what is important to you. Our business model allows you to do so!

Time Off!
I don’t know any other business that allows you to take time off and you still get paid. This opportunity gives you that option if you are willing to learn.

Time Zone!
What if you could build a business in a different time zone? Our business allows you to do so. Imagine getting paid whilst sleeping which is entirely possible.

Time to read
I’ve found myself during my period with the company reading more and more about ‘self development’. Anyone can do this business if they spend a few hours reading different materials. It might mean missing the soaps or a film. But these people are already living their dreams on the screens, now it is your time! 4 years of college never thought be about Entrepreneurship. I believe that has to change!

Junk Food Kids!

Juice plus premium

Junk Food Kids

I have recently  finished a documentary on TV called Junk Food Kids and I am quite shocked really. The name says it all about a documentary set in the UK where childhood obesity is on the rise.

The mother and her children walk around the supermarket and eat their sushi and sandwiches and share an apple juice. When it comes to the crisp aisle, a 20 pack was purchased for convenience and cost.

Ironic?

The same mother attempting an Oscar winning performance saying her heart is breaking seeing her daughter ‘Talula’ suffer. Of course, the tears came from the mother who refused to take any blame for her child’s obesity. She then asks Talula to run upstairs and fetch her some tissue. Talula responds that she can get the tissue downstairs. Is taking the easy option rubbing off on Talula? Irony? Another child had 75% of his baby teeth removed and Talula suffered terrible tooth decay also. This should never happen  and costing the NHS in the United Kingdom millions of pounds.

In Ireland, we have a programme called Operation Transformation. This starts around the beginning of the year. A PE teacher was assigned to a specific school to get the kids more active. In doing so, there was marked improvements in the behaviour and fitness of the children noted by the teachers and professors involved.Yet,the powers that be will only recommend that the children complete only 45 minutes of physical activity per week. Surely this is not enough!

Who to blame?

Personally, I think it is a combination of the supermarkets, the schools, the manufacturer of products and the parents. Ultimately, it lies with the parents as they can select what goes into a child’s mouth.

What can be done?

A combination of both good food and exercise is the simple solution. A diet enriched in fruits,vegetables and berries with plenty of water and ditching highly processed food.

The Juice Plus company is doing something about it as we try and inspire healthy living across the world! .Children can receive the product for free. The benefits and the information is in the link below.
