Help Me Help a Friend!

I have a dear, sweet friend, Melissa, (I also work with her husband, Blake) that contracted West Nile Virus 5 years ago. She is still suffering from the effects of that nasty illness. Below is a little bit of info on Melissa.

We all have our struggles throughout life.  Melissa has had her share of them as well.  One of those struggles is the result of contracting West Nile Virus 5 years ago.  It was a horrible illness in and of itself, but because if it- Dystonia was the byproduct causing the muscles in Melissa’s left foot and hand to bend and turn abnormally and not respond in the way they did before.  She has had to adjust in so many ways.  It has been a painful and frustrating experience and she has dealt with it so admirably.

To see her carry Grace, who is now age 1, is something to behold.  Melissa is a trooper if ever there was one.  She handles her situation valiantly and always leaves me feeling better when I am around her.  Perhaps many of you feel that same way.  She is genuine and amazing in so many ways.

I have personally been the recipient of the goodness and generosity and love from others- mostly anonymous- during a very lengthy period when my husband was unemployed and with a family of 6 children to support.  Those who blessed my family, in small and big ways, are my “angels on earth”.  I now understand in a very personal way that angels are those who help ease or lift the burdens of others when they can.  In fact, Blake and Melissa are two of my angels.  They trust me to watch Grace, and this has been a financial blessing to my family.  Thankfully, my husband is now employed.

Now, it is my turn to give something back. 

Melissa recently was introduced to a medical device that straps below her knee and which sends electrical impulses from the knee muscles down to a sensor/probe on her foot.  It basically helps correct Melissa's dystonia by sending electric impulses that bypass her central nervous system to make her foot have a normal gait.  She was so hopeful to be able to have one of her own to use, and not just at therapy sessions.  The hope is that by using it as much as possible it will help stimulate and strengthen the muscles so she can start walking the correct way on her own.  Sadly, the insurance company refused to cover the cost of this device which is around $7000. 

This is Melissa without the device


This is Melissa WITH the device! :)

Here is a video that was made about her struggle with West Nile Virus. Melissa's is the first story told on the video. 

SO......this is what I want to do: ANY order placed on my Beachbody websites, I will donate 25% of the purchase price (which is my entire commission!) to Melissa's medical device fund!

If you would like to make a donation, a PayPal account has been set up as well! Donate Here

Let's make this birthday the BEST birthday ever for her!!

Spring clean your insides!

The new Beachbody Ultimate Reset™ is now available for purchase.

What is the Beachbody Ultimate Reset?
It's a comprehensive, no-starvation, inner body tune-up. In just 21 days, the Ultimate Reset can help you gently restore your body to its original "factory settings," to help you:

• Have more energy and greater focus*
• Experience better digestion and a more positive mood*
• Enable your body to function more efficiently*
• Help you lose weight*
• Improve your overall health.*

Why Reset?

Our environment has become more and more toxic. Our bodies absorb pollution and harmful chemicals all our lives, along with the air we breathe, the food we eat, and the water we drink. These toxins can get stored in our bodies, clogging our cells and slowing down their natural functions.

It's not enough just to work out and eat right. At Beachbody, we realized we had to take a break from the everyday and find a way to get those toxins out of our bodies. Along with getting in shape on the outside, we had to start getting healthy on the inside. We decided it was time for a Reset.

What the Beachbody Ultimate Reset is NOT:

• A starvation diet. (You'll eat three filling, healthy meals every day.)• An abrupt cleanse that's hard on the body. (The supplements work together gradually to gently shift your body's internal settings.)*
• A laxative-based, colon-focused cleanse, which fails to truly detoxify the whole body. (You won't be running to the bathroom every hour!)

To learn more, find out what to expect during the Reset, and read Success Stories from test group participants, go to my Web site at http://beachbodycoach.com/rkcreations and click on the Beachbody Ultimate Reset banner. Or contact me directly and I'll be glad to answer any questions you might have. (and, as always, you can get 25% OFF when you sign up as a coach!)

Get ready to restore your inner health!

Update Time!

Alright! So....this morning as I was changing into my workout clothes, my hubby comments, "WOW! you're looking different!" He was genuinly surprised at how much my body had changes since starting Insanity. That made me HAPPPPPPY!!! lol! It's about stinkin' time I started LOOKING like I was beating myself up every day! So I had him update my pictures......

And YES! That's only a 1 week difference in the last 2 pictures! No gut being held in! No cheating!! Honest to goodness RESULTS!! And even though I only lost a pound in the last pic, you can clearly see that I lost MUCH more than that! In just 32 days I have almost los my upper belly (still working on my lower...but it WILL go away!! It better! Or I'm cutting it off!!LOL!) Oh, and pay no attention to my mess hair or lack of make-up.......please!

And look at my "love handles" how they are shrinking! Hubby says I need to ditch the plaid shorts! LOL!! Well, my birthday is next wednesday my dear! (hint hint)

If I can get these results doing insanity and drinking Shakeology, so can you!!
