Everything You Need to be Great is Already Inside You!

While you spend time scrolling though Facebook, I am working on my next post to inspire someone.  To lift someones spirits.  To encourage someone.  I am messaging someone to see how they are doing with their fitness challenges or their customized workouts I have written for them.  I am messaging someone to see how their nutrition plan is going.  If it needs adjustments.  I am checking in with my team of coaches to make sure they are reaching their goals.  While you are scrolling through Pinterest pinning stuff you want, things you plan to do, recipes you plan to make, workouts you will never do, dreaming of things you won't have unless you WORK for them, wishing you could travel here or there, I am building a business.  How long will you continue to do these time wasting activities?  Who knows... God knows I did them for way too long.  I am thankful I got a wake-up call.  I am creating value in OTHERS.  I am building a bridge to freedom.  To be able to do what I want, when I want, with who I want.  Meaning, making my own schedule.  Working on my time.  Working for myself, not for someone else. When will you wake up and realize that you were made for so much more?  When will you start making the necessary changes to make your dreams a reality?  When will you realize that we have all been put on this earth to serve others?  To serve each other!  This does not just come from my mouth, but from many other successful entrepreneurs and from the Bible.  We were made to be courageous.  We were made to lead the way!

Post-Op and Recovery Update

Tomorrow will be one month since the removal of the GIST (Gastro-intestinal stromal tumor) in the lining of my stomach.  Quite a few people have been reaching out to see how I've been feeling and for an update on what's next. First off, the surgery went well.  My surgeon only had to make one incision in the mid-line of my abdomen, because as he started to cut, the tumor was visible immediately.  He said I was a "surgeons dream" since there wasn't much to cut through!  My pain was controlled well post-op and I did not have near as much nausea from the pain meds as I did from the lung biopsy.  They made sure to stay on top of giving me anti-nausea meds and even put a scopolamine patch behind my ear pre-op.  I stayed in the hospital for two nights and then was able to go home.  Recovery went well with no complications.  Over the last month, I've had a lot of emotional ups and downs.  Waiting on the results from the pathology on the tumor was difficult.  O

Surgery Update

If you read my last blog post, I left off with that I was home from my lung biopsy recovering and that the preliminary results showed up as "Organizing Pneumonia".  They did confirm that on the pathology, so my lungs are cancer free!  Praise God! I met with my Surgical Oncologist, Dr. Jeffery  Hardacre which let me tell you is one amazing man.  Not only does he seem highly qualified to care for me, but he has an incredible bedside manner.  He took his time to explain everything to my husband and I and answered all of our crazy questions.  I feel very confident in his hands and he seems to be very optimistic about things.   I am scheduled to go into surgery with him tomorrow for the removal of the gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST).  If you haven't heard of this type of tumor, it's not your typical "stomach cancer".  Stomach cancer actually grows inside your stomach and could be a lot worse than a GIST.  This tumor is in the "wall/lining" of
