As far as Citrus Bliss goes, I LOVE this oil!! It reminds me of eating creamsicles at my grandmothers' homes when I was young. It's my happy oil! I've used it for perfume, deodorant & in my relaxation baths. I love this meme!
Here's the links to listen to both parts of the call:
Part 1: Announcements & Citrus Bliss
Part 2: Citrus Bliss, Taking Action & Q&A

So, I haven't made great progress this year, but I've definitely gone down a dress size or two. My weight is hanging in there around 190, but it fluctuates. Both pairs of my 'good' jeans are now loose. The 18s require a belt all the time(which I have a love/hate relationship with) and my 16s are constantly being tugged upwards. :-)
So, I may not have lost all the weight I want yet, but there are definite changes happening!!
And remember those truffles I made a few weeks ago? I was good! I never even ate what would equal a whole one! Actually, other than the bacon :-! , I never ate more than a bite of anything - just enough to make sure the taste was good... But my kids had a blast eating all those leftovers. They're already thinking about another chocolate party! But I have news for them, the next taster's party I have Will be savory dishes that I can eat!

So as my guests walked into the room, I had a little round table with plates, napkins and a survey. That's one of the few photos I forgot to take because I was so focused on the CHOCOLATE!
Then as they continued in the room there was chocolate treats everywhere!
On the side table were the truffles.
From the top going clockwise there's Peppermint, Wild Orange, Cinnamon, & Lemon. All of these are made not only with the oils, but my secret ingredient - BEANS! They are lower-fat and higher-protein than most truffles. And the are YUMMY! You can find the recipes for these truffles HERE.
Then there was the coffee table. On it were:
First, the Slim & Sassy Fudge Brownies.
Then the Citrus Bliss pretzels rods.
Next was the Ginger Chocolate Bacon!
The last thing on the coffee table was a Triple Chocolate Spice Cake featuring OnGuard. Definitely a favorite of the evening!
Finally there was a dipping station.
We had all kinds of treats to dip into our oil-infused chocolates!
We had Cinnamon Sweet Chocolate, Lemon White Chocolate & Wild Orange Dark Chocolate. Everyone seemed to have their favorite!
We had a blast putting it together & even more fun when everyone arrived. And talk about a turnout! We had to print more surveys before we were done!
Does this give you any ideas? Maybe you can host your own Chocolate Tasting soon!

Did you know Vetiver is a grass?
They say when little kids ask for it, they ask for oil that smells like dirt! Personally, I think it smells slightly like a brush fire. However, I know it works. I've seen it. I think that's why so many people add other oils when using Vetiver though.
For our business topic we discussed procrastination. We even brought in some of Jeff Olson's The Slight Edge principles. Think about how those two can be related. We know we need to be doing certain things to succeed - little things that are fairly easy when we are discussing our daily actions- but they are so easy not to do as well. If we continually take the path of least resistance (which is usually not to do those things), we set ourselves up for failure. But if we can train ourselves to be consistent in taking those steps, we can succeed.
It was a great call, with some pretty good discussions afterward, too! Listen HERE.
