Post 10 Day Transformation Challenge

I've now completed the 10 Day Purium Transformation Challenge.  It's a statement to make, a statement to declare, that I have started a journey.  A journey into a healthier lifestyle and Purium is the tool to assist me in this journey.  It has set me on the right path physically, which doesn't stop there!  It will help set me on the right path for a healthier mental health as well!

In turn having a healthier physical and mental lifestyle comes from having a healthier spiritual lifestyle.  Ultimately my better, more healthier lifestyle stems from my faith in God.  It's the foundation for me jumping in, taking old of this project called Purium, and joining up with a great team of people, going after the same goal.  "How healthy can I live my life?  What can I do to achieve a better more healthier lifestyle?"

Maybe these are some of the thoughts, questions, or desires in your own life.  How long will they remain simply thoughts or desires.  When will you take action?  Maybe you don't know where to start?  Maybe you're waiting for the right time?  How about now, how about Purium.

Make an important investment into living healthier today.  If Purium can help, give it a try!

It's your challenge, not mine.

Purium 10 Day Transformation - Day 08

This is when you start to see that ending!  You feel that sense of accomplishment, you're almost done, and it comes to the point where the pain of missing out on all that "good junk food" goes away.

I even have soreness in my ribs and the sides where my love handles used to be.  Is that NORMAL?!  I ache all over in my neck and my back.  On top of that my tailbone hurts and my abdominal area.

If you read this without knowing what's happening in my life.  The first thing you want to do or say is get to a doctor!  Or, stop doing whatever you're doing if it's causing you so much pain.  Pain, what is it with pain and why we spend all our lives trying to stay away from or prevent pain.

To me, pain can be a few things:

  1. A way of your body giving you warnings that what's going on inside you is harmful
  2. Bi-product of a tremendous change in ones body to the point it needs to catch up.
I believe most of my pain stems from me losing the weight and getting rid of some harmful foods that were in my body for who knows how long.

You may experience things differently, but don't push away pain or give up because you're experiencing it.  First, take some time to diagnose the reason for or source of the pain.  Maybe it's a good thing and it will only last for a chosen amount of time.

Keep up the great work on your Transformation Journey and feel free to contact me @ if you're interested in the Purium program I'm doing and want to join up for the life long cause of living a better more balanced, healthier lifestyle.

It's your challenge, not mine.

Dreams of Fungus

Have you ever had a dream, maybe when you were a child, while growing up and you maybe shared that dream with your friends, parents, or teachers, and then you grew up and as an adult you may have forgotten, reasoned it away do to "real life" consequences or logic.

Maybe you even "psh" it away and say, that will never happen, or that's just a bunch of childhood crap.  Someone might have laughed it away when you shared it.

Either way, the dream remains a dream and never becomes reality.

Maybe your dream is living a healthier lifestyle.  I remember thinking that a couple years ago.  Life was not at its peak moments, I had experienced a tremendous change in my life and experienced something I never thought would ever happen.  I wanted to run away, give up, and the only thing I had to hold onto was my faith in God and friends that stood by me in  those moments.

I remember looking at myself, I hated myself, hated how I looked, and decided I would no longer look at myself that way again.  I needed to accept myself for who I was and do something to get me out of the funk I was in.

I started simple, I started thinking about the things I like to do like hiking and photography.  I started doing those things that brought me happiness.  I started setting goals to balance out my life spiritually and fighting for the positive side of things in my daily living.

April 2014 was the ground breaking moment in my life.  That is what brought me to where I'm at today.  Today, I'm on the 8th day of my 10 Day Transformation through Purium.  A new chapter in my life, filled with more opportunities, more excitement, more happiness, and more importantly, another way to share my story with you and help you go after your dreams.

As you read this you might be thinking about your dreams right now.  Can they truly be reached?  Maybe one of your dreams is to live more healthy like me.  What have you got to lose by trying Purium, except weight. :)

Your dream might look like a bunch of "fungus" to others, but it's not their dream, it's yours.  Don't let reason, doubt, or other people keep you from trying.  Try accepting yourself for who you are.  Try giving your body the nutrients it needs, then you might find yourself going after a better mental and spiritual body like I did.  After all, balance is key to a healthy lifestyle.  Not just physically, but emotionally and spiritually.

It's your challenge, not mine.

Purium 10 Day Transformation - Day 04 - 07

Wow what a crazy weekend!  On Friday, there was a school Valentines Day dessert judging, Saturday was Valentines Day with home made red velvet cupcakes, burgers and fries all day Sunday, and Monday & Tuesday night date night.

All these things bombarding you makes it difficult and may cause you to give in or give up.  The first few days you feel dizzy, hungry, my sense of smell changes to where all and any food smells good enough to eat.  However, when you're determined to have your victory on your 10 Day Transformation.  You keep chuggin along on them shake-shake'n shakes and nothing is going to stop you from having a healthier more prosperous lifestyle.

Sure, we all have slips along the way.  Sure we might have an overwhelming desire to "cheat" before the 10 Day Transformation is completed.  Keep going forward, don't lose hope, you will be transformed into something more beautiful

You can DO it #Challenge.Me

Purium 10 Day Transformation - Day 03

What a feeling having my first shake this morning.  I actually drank and enjoyed it!  It was a weird feeling thinking, "this is a healthy thing with a bunch of grass and other stuff in it, and it's tasting almost like an apple flavored milk shake!"  Yes, I must have gone off the deep end for sure, or, maybe my taste buds are changing, or getting older I'm starting to like the healthy things in life.  Who knows.

I know this though, tonight my son participated in my last shake of the night and he tried it out and enjoyed it straight up with only water.  I wasn't sure he'd go for it, but I'm confident he'll love the almond milk blend and I can't wait to try out the Reese's flavored idea.

Making it fun, truly brings its rewards and sticking to the plan as best as you can is important.  If it wasn't for a prior commitment I would have been right on.

However, if you do slip off the path, just jump back in and keep on going!  Don't let guilt keep you from jumping back in and being successful.

Purium 10 Day Transformation - Day 02

Wow what a day!  I had to start it out with avoiding temptations of eating some good food at a United Way company breakfast.  I sat there with some choice fruits while everyone else chowed down on coffee cakes and fun yogurts with berries mixed in; not to mention the pastries!

I felt a lot better going into this day with a better preparation than yesterday.   Not quite as faint either, and there were times I stopped thinking about food as well.

Having a team, I can't say it enough, whether physically, or virtually will help you start out and keep on track.

Purium 10 Day Transformation - Day 01

The first day, probably the most difficult day, though I won't know until I've completed the next day all the way to the 10th days.  This is the day you have to prove it to yourself that you're going to follow through and do this cleanse.

This is where your team of supporters, friends, family, would be good to come a long side you to help encourage you to keep pressing on and walking forward.

I charge you today, keep pushing forward even if it hurts!

10 Day Transformation Challenge

There comes a time when we all wish we're looking as good as that guy or that girl.  We see they're in shape and looking healthy and happy.  We think, "Boy I'd like to be healthy like them..." as we're stuffing our faces with donuts.

Then we try some kind of crash course dieting plan which only brings more failure and crushes our moral.

I've decided not to allow those things to bring me down anymore.  I'm happy being me, the whole me, not just certain parts.  I'm going to go after a better more healthier lifestyle and for the next 10 days I'm going to take on Purium's 10 Day Transformation Challenge and I invite you to join me or at least see the outcomes from this challenge.

If you're interested in becoming a part of my team in going after a better, more healthier lifestyle.
