A Testimony Worth Reading...

     Below is a written testimony from a client of
 mine.  Her name is Misty Hallman and I blessed

to have worked with her.  She has been using
 Isagenix and training with me for the past 2

 I thank God daily for self-motivated 

individuals, especially in my line of work,
and Misty is definantly a driven woman.

Here is her story

"My name is Misty Hallman and I am 31-year-old mother of three boys.  I come from a
family where obesity runs rampant.  I have several members of my family that are morbidly
obese and have numerous serious health issues.  Unfortunately, that leaves me genetically
predisposed to obesity as well as my children.  After 3 pregnancies, 13 years of marriage
and living life on the go I was 31, 5’3” tall and I weighed 185 pounds.
My health was deteriorating rapidly as I became diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome,
fibromyalgia, arthritis and the final straw an inflamed pancreas with unhealthy lipase levels.
I was miserable, exhausted and terrified. This was no longer something that could be
avoided this was scary and could take me away from my children.  I had no idea how to eat
correctly or how to work out properly.  Every diet I have ever tried worked at first, but then
the pounds came back and then some.  I was smart enough to know I needed a lifestyle
change, but no idea how to accomplish that.  I had tried to workout, but because I didn’t
know what I was doing I ended up getting bulky instead of losing.
I shared my fears with a friend that also happened to be an RN.  She then introduced me to
Isagenix and Bridgette Grice.  I was scared, miserable and fed up by the time they came
into my life.  I started Isagenix almost 2 months ago and because I was skeptical, I only
ordered the maintenance plan.  I completely fell in love with the products, felt better and
started losing weight.  I decided to order the 30-day cleanse and train with Bridgette 2 days
a week. I also tried to do cardio on the days I didn’t see Bridgette.  This was hard to do
with the 3 boys and honestly I wasn’t always successful.
In 3 weeks, on the 30 day cleanse and training with Bridgette, I have lost 17 pounds and 18
inches.  In the total 2 months of being on Isagenix I have lost 28 pounds.  I went from 185
to 157.  The program has fit seamlessly into my busy life and hasn’t been a struggle.  I am
not starving and I am able to keep up with my active family.  The best part is I no longer
have the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome or fibromyalgia and my pancreas levels are
normal. I truly believe that Isagenix and Bridgette saved my life."

Healthy Finger Foods: Sweet Potato Bites

As Mara Mae transitions into her "independent" toddler phase I'm having to be creative while still trying to feed her nutritiously!  So I came up with these cute little finger foods... 

Sweet Potato Bites:

1st you will cut a raw sweet potato down the center..making a circular slice all the way around.  Then place the whole potato into boiling water.

After a few minutes of boiling, take the sweet potato out and place it in cold water.  Then....

Voila!!  The WHOLE entire skin slides right off!!  I can't take credit for the ingeniousness because I saw it on a you tube video and had to try ;)

Next you dice the potato up into small squares and you boil them for a few more minutes until tender.  Then you will strain them and let them cool for a few minutes.

Next you will next need a very cute subject to try out your new trick treat. :D

"Hmmm... "

 Ding! Ding! Ding! 
 We have a WINNER! 
 A happy Baby means a happy Mama!

And looky here...she even shares.  How" sweet!"

Your turn!!


My Story...what is all of the fuss about Isagenix?

I know some of you have got to be wondering...

...what is all of the fuss about Isagenix?!? 

Hi there!!  Remember me?  I'm the girl that last posted about my cleansing journey via Natalia Rose's Detox4Women book.  So here I am, months since my last blog post, here to tell you my "since-then" ventures.  Let me start from the beginning.. 

Roughly eleven months ago my sister had heard about this company from a very close friend of hers.  She blew it off, as did I when I first heard about it.  Months later she finally checked into it and decided to order...well of course she had to share the delicious details with yours truly and that's when my story began...After I received her call and she told me about all of the products that Isagenix had to offer, I have to say I was not buying it skeptical. There was just no way that these "foods" so they say have all of the nourishment your body needs to thrive!  So that's when I decided I was taking matters into my own hands. I mean, I knew nutrition... I had done cleanses...hello--how about my Natalia Rose 4 week detox??! 

  •  I'm sure you guys remember that? (I spend roughly $150.00 a week on MY groceries ALONE and it was TOUGH..a lot of planning, preparing, etc..)

  Now let me fill you in a little bit more... my closest group of ladies, also known as my "health support group" were already all signed up for Isagenix.  So in the back of my mind I knew that if they were doing then it was more than likely legit.. but I just wanted to know for myself and use my own discernment.  Jay Bennet, who has been in Isagenix for a good many years, was coming to spread the "good word" and share information on the company and their products in Lexington.  So, I took my skeptical self up to the Wingate Hotel next to I-20 and listened to what the man had to say...

    After listening to the glowing 50-something year-old man, I knew that he must be doing something right.  I was sold.  I signed up the next day and haven't looked back since.  A few days on the shakes and Isagreens powder I had just as much energy as I did at the END of my Natalia Rose cleanse... but it wasn't fleeting either... it LASTED and is still continuing to help this mother, wife, personal trainer, and ex carb-a-holic have tons of energy, a speedy metabolism, LOSE MY CARB CRAVINGS (this is HUGE for me..you really have no idea), and create an incredible sense of mental clarity. 

You know, being a personal trainer has been very fulfilling.. there's something about helping people achieve their physical goals and dreams, that not much can hold a candle too.  Now I can give them a way to get their even faster and literally help them change their lives... and then show them how they too can help people they know also change their lives.  It's the gift that keeps on giving.

I come to you all here today as just a girl with a big dream and high hopes to help any and all of the people in my life be the healthiest human beings they can be.  I am blessed to have this opportunity in my life.  When it comes down to the "Why?" of why I am sharing Isagenix with people it really is rooted to the compassion I have in my heart to really want to make a difference in people's lives... the rest of the benefits just happen to come a long with it.  

Thank you for listening to my story. I LOVE YOU ALL!  If you want to know more about Isagenix go to my site http://jensmith-cleanse.com/  & type in Username: Bgrice2  & Password: gratitude .. watch, read, learn, and be transformed..

Who's life have you changed today?

Love, Life, & Health,
