Also, created a way to make an extra income for myself! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5705585 I had my yearly complete lipid profile done and everything is good. One thing I started taking is Cinnamon Capsules. I take two in the morning and two at night. As a result of taking these, my blood sugar or Glucose levels have gone way down. My levels have been around 107 and this time my readings went way down to 93. I've been told if you take Cinnamon Capsules, it will lower your glucose levels tremendously. I feel it does just that. Diabetes runs in my dad's side of the family and ... Wed, 28 May 2014 22:30:44 EST Quote my husband wrote the other day! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5369310 Here's a quote my husband Kevin wrote the other day: <BR> "MAY YOUR DAY BE FILLED WITH THE WONDER OF WOW!!! INSTEAD OF THE WONDER OF WHY? <BR> <BR> I would like to know if it's worth looking into copyrighting it? He's very good at writing poems and other things. Everyday he comes up with something. When he does I say to him here you go again, you have rhymeitis. Not sure how to spell it. Close enough. We tried to submit some into Hallmark and they liked some, but it cost a lot to publ... Mon, 27 May 2013 12:52:25 EST My work moved to a new location as of 5/20/2013! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5367635 As of 5/20/2013, my work moved to a new location! We were originally located in a hospital and now we have our own place. I work in Health Information Management (medical records). I live only 5 mins away and when the weather cooperates, then I thought about riding my bike to work. That will give me chance to burn some calories and get some needed exercise. It's been raining a lot lately, so I'm waiting until it lets up and we get some needed sunshine. <BR> <BR> <em>30</em> Sat, 25 May 2013 14:00:25 EST Warm the Heart, Enliven the Senses, and Inspire the Soul! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5338124 To bring value to the world by providing an industry-leading, family-friendly business opportunity selling creative, artistic, high-quality products that Warm the Heart, Enliven the Senses, and Inspire the Soul! <BR> <BR> <em>436</em> <em>414</em> <BR> <BR> <link>www.AromaSense1.scentsy.us </link> Sun, 28 Apr 2013 10:30:58 EST Scentsy Consultant and proud of it! This is a Healthy way to go! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5305252 I'm a Scentsy Consultant and using wickless warmers to melt fragrance wax is the better way to go. The burning wax in Candles omits carbon dioxide and other oils used to manufacture it. The cheaper the candle, the worst it is. The different smells can send out harmful chemicles as well. Scentsy Wickless Warmers is a flameless candle (like a tart burner) that only heats up enough to melt the wax. You can stick your finger in the wax and not get burned. Not only is it cleaner but safer if you h... Sat, 30 Mar 2013 11:04:42 EST Lost 5 lbs and a Documentary worth watching! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5255366 Over the past few days I've lost 5 lbs due to being on a liquid diet. Now I'm down to 135lbs. I had a reason to do it this way. I just had a colonoscopy done and everything went well. The prepping is the worst. My first one. Cleaning out my colon like that can be very good. I think cleansing your colon is very good for you. <BR> <BR> Also, there's a documentary my husband and I watched yesterday and I think it should be posted on SP. <BR> <BR> The title: "In Search of The Perfect ... Mon, 18 Feb 2013 20:43:44 EST Stressed out and over worked! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5253514 I've been feeling stressed out and over worked lately. Since my husband and I bought our elliptical machine, we've been on it a few times. We told ourselves we would use it everyday, but truthfully we haven't been using it faithfully on a regular day to day basis. I work all day and when I get home I have no energy. He's been sick and he hasn't felt like using it, which is understandable. I've been on a liquid diet, no solid foods due to a colonoscopy procedure I'm having tomorrow 2/18/2... Sun, 17 Feb 2013 11:09:00 EST Bought an Elliptical Dual Trainer machine! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5224248 I finally bought an Elliptical Dual Trainer machine! My husband and I both use it almost everyday. We have agreed to track our progress. So far we've been trying to stick with it everyday. We are starting slow right now. <BR> We've told each other we are not using it as a clothes hanger. HA, HA! <BR> <BR> Erin - ev1959 <em>334</em> <em>314</em> <em>381</em> Sat, 26 Jan 2013 11:08:01 EST I finally did it! I got married on Sept. 3, 2011! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4478682 I got married on Sept. 3, 2011. We've been wanting to do this for a long time and we finally did it. I'm happy we accomplished our goal. Just thought I would spread the good news to everyone. My husband and I have known each other since my daughter, from a previous marriage, was 6 months old. She is now 25 years old. We were just friends then. Her last name is the same as her dad's, but she wants to change it to my last name now. She's not happy with her last name Vinson. I told her ... Sun, 11 Sep 2011 11:36:26 EST Glad to be back on SP! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4277267 I'm glad to be back on SP! It's been about a month since I wrote another blog. This one is about a healthy meal I created myself where you get your protein & vitamins without the work to make. I put together 3 eggs, which are good for you now, because they put flax seed and other vitamins in the chicken's diet now, low sodium spam, pieces of broccoli, shredded cheese, flax seeds, sunflower seeds, crushed red peppers (not green peppers, which you could use) and stir that up to make an omele... Sat, 4 Jun 2011 19:41:33 EST Found time to get 3 miles on my bike the other day! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4177692 My fiance and I found time to ride our bikes the other day and got 3 miles in. We haven't done it for awhile, so we are taking it slow. We love bike riding, more than walking sometimes. We thought we'd try to make a goal and get at least 3-4 miles a day after I get off work @ 4pm every day. So far it's been hard to do that lately, because of the weather. It's been very cold and rainy here in Bettendorf, Iowa. Also, down by the mississippi river, the whole lower part of the downtown Dave...

I love Hallmark movies. They are very touching and has a true meaning to them. <BR> <BR> If you get the chance to watch this, you must and share your thoughts. I would love to know what you think. <BR> <BR> Another one I recommend, but not a Hallmark movie is "Your Love Never Fails", with John Schneider. Let me know your thoughts on this one. It's wonderful to... Sat, 9 Apr 2011 22:37:24 EST Woo Hoo! I got the job!!!!!!!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4130520 I got a call this morning from the HR Dept. today and they said they were going to offer me the job.

It went very well! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4117976 I had my interview yesterday 3/24 and it went very well. Now I have to wait until they make that decision. They told me they had another interview to do and they will make a decision by Monday. Pray for me that I do get the job. The thing they were impressed with was I had the experience as a Medical Records Clerk already. I hope they consider me, but if they don't I have to continue looking I guess. <BR> <BR> Thanks for the feedback, <BR> <BR> Erin - EV1959 <em>220</em> <em>247</em>...

I hope it goes well and I hope to get the job. <BR> I'm also making thong bookmarks out of beads to sell. They are turning out great. I will post a few of them on my sparkpage. <BR> <BR> I'm also getting some help through a company that I found out about regarding jobs, interviewing, resume critiquing, facing the unknown, etc. It hopefully will help me build my self-confidence in finding another job, being my job ended last week on...

Yoo Hoo! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4071849 I created a jewelry project from a link @ www.artbeads.com. I sparkbuddy gave me this link to get some tips from and it really helped. It's a photo holder attached to a wooden treasure box that opens up and I sprinkled and glued blue seed beads on top. It was fun. I posted the picture of it on my sparkpage. I would love to know what everyone that visits my sparkpage thinks. I really love comments on my stuff just to see what they think. I love good tips, advice and what I could do bett...

Now that it's 3/4/2011, I called them to find out the status and left a message to the manager that interviewed me and I haven't heard anything about what they have decided on. I'm still trying to find a school to continue my education. My job offically ends on 3/17/2011. Please pray that I find another job soon and get established with a school in my area and the right course of study, which I'm looking into Medical Coding and Billing or HIM Tech ...

Good news is even after my job ends they will give me full severence pay until May 1 and benefits. I'm looking into going back to school locally, but I need to pass the Wonderlic Assessment Tests first. I took it twice and missed it twice by 2. You have to get 15 to pass. I got 13.

It was called "Sunday's @ Tiffany's" with Alyssa Milano, Ivan Sergei, Eric Winter. It was a novel by James Patterson. It was about a little girl that had an imaginary friend from 5 years old to 1o years old and her imaginary friend Michael leaves her on her 10th birthday and then 20 years later he returns to her as a real person and not imaginary anymore and then they fall in love. It tells you that the right choice you m... Thu, 10 Feb 2011 21:06:44 EST Watched an online movie with my fiance tonight! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3988688 We sat down and watched a Hallmark movie online. It was called "The Lost Valentine" with Betty White and Jennifer Love Hewitt. Has anyone seen that yet? It's a real tear jerker. <BR> It was about an elderly lady (Betty White) who husband was missing in action. He was a Naval officer in WWII. Every Valentines day she would go the train station waiting for him to come home, but he never did. This went on for 66 years, until a TV reporter (Jennifer Love Hewitt) talked to her about her hu...
