Tempting snacks

During the holidays there are so many tempting snacks but with all of the things to take care of with the decorating and the shopping and all of the entertaining there is a lot of snacking but we are in constant motion so it all balances out. Last year we had snacked for the entire two months of the holiday season and no one gained a pound when it was all over. Now that is a lot of motion because there were some really great treats and none of them would be on a diet menu!

So they are making deals

There are so many really neat items to shop for. We found some really great gift ideas while looking for other items. that is the best part about shopping with your eyes ready for a deal. We Got great deals and love the gifts we found. So many stores are ready to sell their products so they are making deals. We actually found a TV that we liked and the store told us that they were offering free shipping to out of state deliveries for that day only. How really cool was that. Needless to say we went for it.

Dangerous enough

We all know we are going to put on some extra pounds for the holidays. We just can not help it. There are so many tasty treats available to snack on. We have several gatherings at our home which are dangerous enough for those trying not to pack on pounds but then we have gatherings to attend that are at others homes. It would be rude not to partake on their offerings, would it not? That is what I am telling myself anyway as I reach for the divinity knowing full well I have had some already at our home! I will have to run some extra miles when it is all said and done I am certain. A few more trips to the snack tables and I may have to take up a few more sports as well.

Just stolen moments

Life just gets crazy sometimes. We want to take care of ourselves but sometimes we get busy and the only thing we have in our lives that we can fudge on seems to be the time we spend on ourselves. Work and family take priority and it should. The bad thing about making that a habit is when it becomes so regular to put off our attention for our health that we slowly phase it out. Before long we are no longer taking that jog or spending time at the gym. We may have a gym at our homes and yet we do not take the time to workout. After all we have been running all day doing this and that so we want to take this time to stop it all and rest. The most important thing you can do for yourself is to pay attention. Make certain that you do have some time to care for your needs even if it a little here and there. If you have a family and many people have more than one job it can be difficult but everyone needs to pat themselves on their backs and give yourself a little vacation even if it is just a minute or two. Take the time to see what all you are working for or else it becomes just about the work and everything else suffers. Remember we are working so hard to enjoy life even if it is a glass of tea on the porch for five minutes with your spouse. Maybe the minutes you have you can toss a ball with your son. Let everyone you love know that you are not forgetting them and you will make time for them even if it is just stolen moments. Memories are made moments at a time!

Is to pay attention

Life just gets crazy sometimes. We want to take care of ourselves but sometimes we get busy and the only thing we have in our lives that we can fudge on seems to be the time we spend on ourselves.

Allow ourselves to enjoy

This is the time of year that we allow ourselves to enjoy the tasty treats that fill our tables. We have several parties so we have really great foods. the trick is to not snack every time you pass the table. You have to be aware of how much you are eating. It is easy to take handful after handful and not realize just how much it actually is you are consuming. If you snack in moderation you will not have to deal with the weight gain. We enjoy the tasty treats so much and the hearty dinners prepared for our guests but we enjoy them in moderation.

Loosing weight and contracts

The Weight Watchers group was excited to land a celeb such as Jessica Simpson to their group of popular candidates that are under contract to loose weight as the world watches using their plan. The problem with hiring a young mom to loose weight is she is in the process of creating her family and the worst case scenario for Weight Watchers happened as Jessica is pregnant with baby number two just seven months after giving birth to their first daughter Maxwell. Of course a difficult situation for the weight loss company could not be better news for the young couple anxious to get ther young family underway. A surprise or not for the young couple their new arrival will come and Weight Watchers can get what they want from Jessica after that which is a young mom that now has two children and a busy career and still they are able to help her loose the weight. Now that is a success story even if it is delayed.

Does not stop us from making them

This is the time of year all of the local gyms begin getting their advertising ready for those of us that make those new year resolutions to loss the weight we gained through the holidays. Only a small fraction of us actually stick to our plans for long but that does not stop us from making them. We actually carry out getting them started as well with purchasing workout machines and gym memberships. It may not last all year for the gyms but the burst in memberships helps them to keep business going for the rest of the year and it does not put too much stress on their equipment either because so many join and do not ever make their first trip back.

Time of the year for Chili

This time of year just screams for a big pot of chili on the stove after a long day enjoying time in the cold. We enjoy nature anytime of year but when the colder weather sets in we also enjoy coming into a home that is filled with the smell of chili. Everyone has their own favorite chili recipe. Some are a little more spicy than others. I keep our chili somewhat simple and let the simplicity speak for itself. Some dishes do not need to be done up every time you serve it. You can serve your chili one week with turkey or sausage in it and the next time go with a hamburger base. Maybe for week four you may want to go vegetarian with your chili bowl. Each type of chili tastes totally different and yet each style of dish is delicious. We add cheese, crackers and some pickles on the side to our chili and we are good to go. Some of the most basic recipes just seem to stand the test of time because they are so good.

Getting it now and taking off in January

The holidays are coming on quickly so we have to think now about our plans for the many delicious treats that will be gracing the tables of the events we attend. The fact is everyone enjoys the holiday dishes that are traditional. Usually they are not at the top of our healthy meal list or any where near being healthy of calories restricted. Of course if we make the dishes we can make changes to make them more healthy but many times we are at someone else homes enjoying their recipes which are rich in fat and calories. It is ok to enjoy the tasty treats as long as you are considerate of the amount you are eating. No one should ever indulge even though it can be tempting. We want to enjoy our holidays and not have to worry about our intake on foods so just be aware of just how many of those treats you are eating and take care of the extra pound or two in January.

Table with tempting treats

Even though the holidays are just around the corner we have to begin thinking now about our healthy eating habits during that time. In no time at all we will all be gathered around the table with tempting treats. We will have a dessert table in our kitchen that is second to none. We can have fun with the menus but we have to pay attention so we do not erase all of the work we have done this summer to keep ourselves in top shape. Of course if we do eat more than we should have there is the gym! Sometimes that extra treat is just simply worth it!

Machines and struggle

If you have the space for an exercise room in your home there are many interesting machines designed to tone different parts of your body. Some of them are certainly designed to work but you have to be careful not to overdo anything. Some of the machines that claim they are for any type of workout from beginners to the more bodybuilder type of physique are somewhat kidding themselves. You have to have strength to operate some of the machines from the beginning which makes beginners struggle and sometimes discouraged. Before you invest in any machine make certain you pay close attention to exactly how they work and what they require. For those people that do not have good balance the upside down machines can prove to be complex.

Healthier chili choice

There are so many recipes that fit this time of year. We enjoy our salads as always but we also look forward to a big warm bowl of chili. Chili does not have to have a lot of calories in each bowl. You can use turkey meat in chili and make a healthier chili choice. There are ways to make our favorite recipes more healthy without sacrificing taste.

Natural resources and green printing

It seems every where we turn we see companies realizing the need to step up and take better care of our planet. We no longer have the mind set that we are living on a planet that can recover from natural resources being used at the rate we are using them. It is encouraging to see the larger companies stepping up their role in making smarter choices. We have recently read about a company that practices green printing. They reuse the rags that clean the printing presses in a different capacity within their plant. They have a carbon free and gas free shop. This is an enormous accomplishment for any company especially a printing company that has to work with so many inks and machines. Using this award winning company as a role model certainly other companies will follow suit making our world a cleaner and healthier place to live one factory at a time.

Snacks and food

For those people that enjoy seeing the attention being focused on healthier foods it is an exciting thing that Michelle Obama is on board showing individuals that there are better choices in snack foods that are healthier for us. Sometimes people just need to think before they grab a quick snack. There are many healthy snacks that are delicious and satisfying as well. A healthy snack gives us energy and makes us feel better then a snack filled with sugars.

A continued Journey

Possible extra gain

It may be a bad thing for us to loose weight quickly but it is possible to gain control of weight gain. We see movie stars loosing all of their extra weight from having babies very quickly. We have to consider the fact that these stars have the best of the best in dieticians, weight trainers and personal chefs as well as fitness instructors. It would be a great benefit for anyone that had such access. We can reach the same goals we just have to do it at a different time set.

Common as a stem cell culture

It is a fact that we are living longer and healthier lives then we ever have before because we have more information then we have ever had available to us. This information is often found in labs with information gathered from something as common as a stem cell culture. From these cultures development on cures and treatments for diseases are found. These experiments are taking place constantly all around the world. Science is making the discoveries and the media is releasing their finds so the public can stay informed and take better control of their own health issues. When everyone is informed we are all a healthier society.

More water

For most of us in order to remain healthy all we need to do is drink more water and more around more. If we reduce the amount of foods we eat and perhaps pay closer attention to the times we eat them as well we can actually get to our goal weight and not have to make any sudden changes in our diets that can be difficult to stick to. Of course anytime we make smart choices in our snack foods and select a smarter choice in place of a high caloric food is a great thing as well. I have found that the best way to become more healthy is by becoming more active even if it is just an afternoon walk.

This potential decision

I watched in shock as I saw the news reports on larger drinks being taken off the market in a larger city so consumers would not have the choice of what size drink they wanted! This is insanity at work. First off people will buy the larger drink in protest of being controlled on their choices even if they do not drink it. Second the consumer that would want such a large drink will then turn around and buy more drinks to still consume the same amount so all you did with this potential decision was create an atmosphere of frustrated consumers half of which are angry with the decision and the other half feeling as though their rights are being violated. Division is never a good thing. This topic should not have been a topic at all. When you are infringing on the rights of the general public.

To choose from

There are so many different colas to choose from. The diet colas are definitely making a huge impact on the total cola profits. We now see the diet sodas being placed in the more visual places on store shelves when just a few years ago we had to make an effort to find them. Some sodas are cutting back on their sugar content and calories but are still keeping away from the diet label. However they fall far short from the calories and sugar of the regular colas which is much more healthy. There is also not an after taste with these lower sugar and calories products, however, they are not as sweet. This is a good thing for consumers.

Living longer and naturally

There was a time when we would hear the word diet foods and naturally assume they had no flavors. That world has changed. With all of the focus in today’s world being placed on living longer and healthier lives there are greater expectations being placed on anything that is diet. We naturally assume if we hear the word diet associated with a food item we think of it as a healthier choice and in most cases that assumption is true.

A continued Journey

Sometimes a smarter choice

For most of us in order to remain healthy all we need to do is drink more water and more around more. If we reduce the amount of foods we eat and perhaps pay closer attention to the times we eat them as well we can actually get to our goal weight and not have to make any sudden changes in our diets that can be difficult to stick to. Of course anytime we make smart choices in our snack foods and select a smarter choice in place of a high caloric food is a great thing as well. I have found that the best way to become more healthy is by becoming more active even if it is just an afternoon walk.

Changes to our routines

Dealing with extra weight can be difficult. It makes us tired and gives our body an extra task to deal with as it goes through the days activities. It can be dangerous if our extra weight becomes extensive but extra weight is a problem we can solve. We just need to react sooner rather than later to the problem. When we first notice excessive tiredness and dread of motion we need to begin making changes in our routines that include more movement even if not stressful movement on our bodies. We do not have to do an insane work out to get results of a slimmer trimmer body. If we are over weight by a large amount we can still make changes that will eventually get our bodies into a more healthy state simply through movement.

General Health

Just a simple afternoon or early morning walk can make all of the difference in your general health. A healthy strong body functions well and feels better. When we feel better we have more energy and therefore we move more. Our bodies respond to movement better as well by not becoming stiff so fast and relaxing better at night when it is designed to. Feeling better, resting better and thinking more clear are all linked back to a simple walk! Many people make the mistake of thinking they have to have a full workout that is loaded with high impact. The fact is you can get less stress on your body and still maintain a great workout through a walking session. Of course while you are walking it is also a great time to relax your mind so you think much clearer as well. Everything great comes from a fast paced walk or even a simple walk that takes your body into full movement.

Walking and tracks

There was a time when I was alone walking on our local track every afternoon. There would be an occasional runner but sooner or later they too would not show up. I like to think they found a better route to do their running. There is something very hamster like about walking circles around a track. It is not stimulating at all. You just think a lot about your goals and things you need to take care of. Of course you try to get your mind to relax and enjoy the walk but the fact is you can not help but think about ideas or problems that need to be resolved. I can not tell you how many decisions I have made while walking. Of course I am also the crazy person, or so I thought, that finds mowing the grass very cathartic. I have found that many people agree with me on grass mowing! I suppose more people are needing therapy then I thought lately because the track has actually become a very busy place in the last few months. I can not figure out if that is a good thing or not!

We need to sleep

Everyone needs a good night’s sleep. The fact is many people do not have that option because their night’s are spent grinding their teeth or clinching their teeth which makes the muscles tight and tired causing many people to have restless night’s or headaches the next day. There is help for those that suffer this condition called a dental night guard. There was a time that people had to pay a lot of money in order to get relief from this condition but that has now changed. We found a company online that has night guards for far less then people have been paying. Right now you can purchase a standard soft night guard for as little as $34.95 to $53.95, compared to $400-$1000 if you were to purchase from a dentist. This savings not only saves customers money but it also opens the door of relief to many more people. They offer custom made dental guards for those that require a certain fit as well at tremendous savings. It is easy to get the custom guard or the standard guard and you can get relief from chinching and grinding so you can and those around you can have a good night’s sleep. They guarantee their product with a money back guarantee which shows confidence in a product to the customer. We can find anything online including great deals of dental night guards.

Sometimes it just takes one simple object to inspire you to decorate an entire space. I had inherited a large painting from my father that was filled with beautiful shades of orange yellow and creams. It was such a powerful focal point, I decided to hang it in the dining room above the buffet. The current shade of green on the walls was clashing with the painting and I found myself lost at what to d. Later that evening, I was flipping through direct tv chula vista and caught a few minutes of one of those DIY programs. They just so happened to be talking about color and its effects on our moods and so forth. It was then that I learned how great the shade of grey was. It allows any and all other colors to become the focal point when used on the room. That was when I decided this was exactly what the dining room needed and so I set off to paint the room. I am so happy with the results. The painting pops beautifully against the grey walls. I simply love it.

From Nobal cactus

As much as we try to make the best decisions on doing the right thing for our health there are some people that live every day with a painful inflammation condition throughout their bodies. It can be painful to even move when you are an inflammation sufferer. Inflammation can be anywhere in your body or everywhere including muscles, joints, respiratory, arterial or your digestive tract. When I read about a wellness drink called Nopalea which is made from the Nopal cactus with all of the healing powers this cactus is associated with I had to know more. When our bodies need more we should pay attention and a body that is not performing at it’s best is in need. This wellness drink contains the antioxidants that have been scientifically proven to reduce inflammation. When you drink Nopalea daily it can help your body to cleanse itself of all the daily toxins as well as reducing inflammation. When we realize the leading cause of pain is inflammation you can understand how an anti inflammatory wellness drink would be so beneficial for optimal health. Everyone can try Nopalea for free. You will need to pay the shipping cost of $9.95. You simply need to call 1-800-203-7063 to get your bottle of Nopalea sent to you so you can begin to see the difference this wellness drink can make for you. They have already sold more then 3 million bottles.

The Singapore Mission was a success!

The Singapore Mission was a success! Henry Golding and Irene Ang managed to sell 10,542 food hampers for the needy elderly. With a combined effort of charm, great selling skills and a whole lot of hard work, they were able to prove that Singaporeans have really big hearts.

Singapore has one of the fastest growing elderly populations in the world. Today, there are about 35,000 needy elderly in the country, many of who are left to provide for themselves. the most needy of this group live off as little as $300 a month, money that is barely enough for their food and basic necessities.

The mission: Pack and sell 5000 food hampers for the needy elderly.

Cleaning, washing on concrete

When you look at your home or business you may not notice how much you need to clean the concrete. We did not realize how much we needed to clean our concrete at our home until we cleaned the office concrete. We thought why not see if it would make a difference. It really made a difference. When you do a concrete power washing austin you can get all of the spots up that give your concrete a non clean look. Once it gets power washed it has a clean and fresh look like it did when it was first poured. You can get the clean look you want and find our information online at http://www.thesteamteam.com/. It will surprise you how much of a difference the little details make in the curb appeal of your home or office. We like to do a good power washing twice a year on our home’s drive way. The power washing removes the grime and stains from berries and leaves as well as oil stains and makes everything have a neat and cared for appearance. The holidays are just around the corner which means we will be having a lot of company. Making everything fresh and clean is a part of our holiday preparedness.

Sweeteners we use

The Halloween season is upon us and that means we will be tempted by ghoulish treats. The fact is treats do not have to be unhealthy for us. There are ways to enjoy the treats we enjoy without all of the added sugars. You can use sugar substitutes to give your sweets that delicious flavor without actually adding all of the sugars. We often hear how we need to eliminate added sugars to our diets. The fact is sugar has a calorie count of a mere 15 calories per teaspoon. This sounds low unless we realize all of the sugars we are getting from our other foods naturally. We should be getting less then 25 percent of our calories from the added sugars that we find in items such as ketchup, cookies and cereals.

There are many people that use artificial sweeteners every day. Then there are those that tried to use the artificial sweeteners and found them to have an after taste and to be frank a little lack luster. That has definitely changed in the following years after the big launch of artificial sweeteners. If we tried the artificial sweeteners of years past and have never tried them again we have to realize that, like everything else, sweeteners have changed. Sugar alternatives made from the herb stevia which is 40 times sweeter then sugar are taking the sweetener market to a whole new level. This sugar alternative is found in Central and South America. It has no calories and does not change blood sugar levels. The problem with this alternative in the beginning was it’s bitter after taste. Once that problem was addressed and only the sweetest parts of the plant were used in the making of the sugar alternatives this product took off. It is offered by Sweetleaf and Trivia and is found in stores ad online for people searching for an alternative to their sugar intake. People are using this product in their beverages and in their cereals and fruits. As of now there is not a product made to be used in baking due to the texture and color change when used for baking. Realizing there is a need for this product to make it into the baking world as well the Sweetleaf company is working on a product that can be used for baking as well. It appears we will be having coolies make from this sweet sweetener in our near futures.

If we are addressing sugar alternatives we have to also mention Whey Low. It has a quarter of the calories and it has less than one third of the glycemic index of sugar. What this means to the consumer is you are less likely to have a down crash after consumption of this product. This product is made from a blend of natural sugars. The natural sugars occurring in fruit known as fructose, table sugar also known as sucrose and the sugar in milk are combined to make this four calories per teaspoon sweetener. Each natural sugar on it’s own may be fully caloric but when combined in Whey Low they combine to make a product that does not completely absorb into the body. It is easy to see why this product is becoming so popular. It is as easy to use as sugar and you can bake with it and still keep your calorie count low. It can be used as sugar for baking except in meringues because the product browns too quickly and does not set well. Being able to enjoy the sweetness without the calories is good news for everyone.

There is a sugar alcohol that occurs naturally in berries and beets called Xytlitol. With only Nine calories per teaspoon and tasting almost as sweet as sugar this product has promise. It is partially absorbed by the body and has a low glycemic index. You can find it in natural food stores. It is so sweet it is recommended that you use only half of the amount you would use of sugar. It can also be used in coffees and teas. Chances are you have already used this product if you have used sugar free gum. It helps to prevent tooth decay by preventing bacteria from sticking to your teeth. Another benefit of this product is the fact that sugar alcohols are not readily digested by our bodies which means our bodies blood sugar levels will not raise when using this product.

Now we come to liquid sweeteners. The blending of several agave plants blend to create liquid sweeteners. You may have heard of this plant because it is used to make tequila. You can not really bake with it but it can be used in teas and coffees. Being much sweeter then honey or sugar you only need about a third to get the ratio of sweetness. If you try baking with liquid sweeteners you need to lower your oven temperature because it browns quickly. There are no benefits from this product as far as the difference between agave nectar and sugar. The calorie count is higher for agave nectar then sugar but the sweetness is so much stronger that you need smaller amounts.

Now we come to the three heavy hitters in the artificial sweeteners market that we hear so much about and here they are with their differences. First we have Sweet’N Low. It is a saccharin that has 4 calories in each fourth of teaspoon packet. That translates to 2 teaspoons of sugar. It can also be used in teas and coffees as many other sweeteners. However because of the difference it creates in volume and texture when you bake with it baking is not it’s strong point. Next we have Splenda. Splenda is sucralose which is 600 times sweeter then table sugar. A packet equals 2 teaspoons of sugar. It is actually made in a lab from a sugar molecule. It is altered so it goes through the body without absorption. There are no calories in Splenda. It is easily used in baking because it reacts well to heat. The last of the famous sweeteners is Equal. Equal is aspartame. Each packet equals 2 teaspoons of sugar. It can be used in recipes but it should be used only in recipes that call for this product specifically.

There are alternatives to the world of sweetness and now you are familiar with them on a different level so you can make good choices whether you are sweetening a glass of tea or baking a delicious sweet treat.

Business and physical therapy

If you have a physical therapy business you may already know how difficult it can be with a group of therapists working in and out of the office and keeping up with all of the bookkeeping and collections. It can be difficult not to get lost in all of the claims and paper work on any given day. To know what is coming in on a certain day can prove to be a huge time consuming task and yet it is vital to make certain you are running your office in the black and not the red. Now there is help and it comes in physical therapy documentation. You can get all of the information you need in a paper free way. This system keeps up with everything without paper and makes collections on outstanding cash come within 20 days sooner. You have the information you need right in front of you saving you time and energy. A well run office relieves so many headaches and it gives the owners a chance to see how efficient things are being run and where changes may need to be made to make your office run even more efficient by eliminating waste.

So many advancements

There are so many advancements being made when it comes to science and medicines. It seems everyday I read about a new advancement that will make health and long life for humans go synonymously together. The latest thin I read was about a company that uses Sheep Placenta to awaken dormant cells in humans. Research has shown that sheep are hardy and have the best immune systems and are resistant to natural diseases. The cells they use in the therapy are not recognized by the human body as foreign cells therefore they are accepted. This means the tired cells are then replaced with more vibrant and energetic cells making the organs that they are designed to work within stronger and able to perform better. Since this cellular therapy does not contain any chemicals it does not effect any other things that the patients maybe taking including vitamins or supplements.  Science advances more and more everyday, in a few years we do not know what will cured next.  There are so many advancements being made as we better understand the human body and how it works. With the help from computers and technology it will be interesting to see what science will find out next.

People are living longer and healthier lives because of the decisions that we are making. We are more aware of the things that we put into and on our bodies because we have a better understanding of how our bodies work. Thanks to medical and science breakthroughs we are able to have better products then we have ever had in the way of probiotics and natural cosmetics. The natural or organic products tend to work more with our bodies then against them and that means less stress on our bodies.

Better choices are what is making the world a better and healthier place for all of us.

We live better and we think clearer with healthier choices. We all want to live longer but we want to be healthy when we do. Living life at our personal best should be the goals of everyone and it all begins with good choices.

So they can stop

We all know that we have a better chance of living longer and healthier lives today more then at any point in history. This is partly because we know more then we have ever known about our bodies and how they operate and we have had so many breakthroughs in science and medicines that the health of our civilizations are reaping the benefits. Being able to get the word out to so many people thanks to the media keeps the public informed on the breakthroughs so we can make healthier decisions. That is why many smokers are using the Cigarrest program so they can stop smoking. You can read the cigarrest review and find out exactly how it works and what you need to do so you can be successful with your smoke free goal. You can read about any cigarrest complaints and understand why anyone would have a complaint and what their complaint is to know if it may effect you the same way. Of course deciding to stop smoking is the first step and it is a big one. Once you reach your goal there is no other accomplishment that you will be more proud of because you will be healthier and feeling better then you have in many years if you have smoked for a long time.

Budgets, safer and electric

There are so many changes happening all around us that many times we do not notice until someone brings it to our attention. If you think about it you see less people smoking then you ever have before. Some of it may be people living within a smaller budget and smoking can get expensive. Some of the decrease may be people wanting to take better care of themselves and still others may have stopped smoking in public because of all the restrictions being put on when and where you can smoke. I was reading about an electric cigarette referred to as an E cigarette that has many advantages over a regular cigarette. First off there is no offensive smoke that can cause odors and cause inconvenience for those around you that do not smoke. You can get them at different nicotine levels and they have no tar or carbon monoxide. They are simple to use and they are said to have a good taste to them. It is easy to see why these E cigarettes would catch on in many types of public settings. They are less dangerous for the smoker and less intrusive for those that do not smoke.

Strain on your body

When you gain and loose weight the skin around your tummy takes a big hit with elasticity becoming less able to tighten especially after a large amount of weight loss. The skin acts as a rubber band that has been stretched out and can not achieve it’s original shape. There is a way to remove some of the out stretched skin so you can once again have that flatter stomach through a tummy tuck. Many people have a tummy tuck for different reasons. Sometimes during pregnancy the tummy can only take so much skin stretching before the elasticity is pulled past it limits and it becomes loose. A simple tummy tuck can once again be the answer so you can have a flatter stomach and begin to firm the stomach area. Tummy tucks are not just for women any more. Men are also enjoying the benefits of surgery to remove the extra skin that gathers around the front middle area due to extreme weight loss. People are wanting to live longer and healthier lives realizing it is possible with today’s science and medical advancements. If you are excessively over weight you are shortening your live span and putting a tremendous strain on your body as well as your organs. Loosing the weight opens the door for other problems such as excess skin that has become stretched and will no longer tighten and go back in place. For that cosmetic surgery can get your body back on it’s original path of the new slimmer and healthier you.

A good positive outlook on life keeps us healthier and makes life more fun. It is a proven fact that people are living longer to day due to the advances in medicines and science. The truth is we do not just want to survive longer but we want to live longer. We want to feel and look our best throughout our lives.

Your future and online palm reading

There are some things in life that we enjoy if we want to admit it or not. For instance I know people that have their palm readings done on a regular basis. Others say they would never do that stuff and yet they ask questions about it. The cool part is you can have an online palm reading done so you can hear what is in your future. No one has to know if you are one of those that want to know but want it private. There are many people that have their palms read and have found so much information out of it. People have been reading palms for many years before us and will read them many years after we are gone. There is so much information about our futures and it is all in the palm of our hands.
Thanks Palmday

Need to make certain more than ever

There are many people being prescribed Zoloft everyday. Many of the people being prescribed this medication are pregnant women. The fact is there is a zoloft lawsuit being brought against the makers of Zoloft because of the increase in birth defects being linked to this drug. This medication is commonly prescribed for depression. Pregnant women taking Zoloft particularly in the third trimester stand a much higher risk of giving birth to babies with serious congenital heart deformities. Some of the birth defects linked to Zoloft are Atrial and Ventricular septal defects, Persistent pulmonary hypertension and Omphalocele to name a few. This is a serious drug that can do serious damage. If you are prescribed any medication you need to do your research before you take it. Knowing that anything you put in your body goes to your baby you need to make certain more then ever that everything you are prescribed is safe for both of you.

Smile, straight and important work

When we hear the expression “You never get a second chance to make a first impression” it may as well be speaking about your smile. Our smiles are so important. It is the first thing anyone notices about our face. It tells the people we are around how we feel. Smiles are also important to the person doing the smiling. The more you smile the happier you feel. When you feel happy your body releases endorphins that make you feel healthy. So you see a smile is not just a smile. When you think about the importance of a smile you can easily see how important the work of an orthodonist would be. Keeping a smile straight gives a person confidence. It can be very difficult for anyone that has a problem with their teeth to feel confident in any social situation. Having a smile that lights up a room makes anyone feel more confident and builds anyone’s self esteem. You can wear the best clothes and have the best hairstyle but if your smile is not the best it can be you feel protective of your appearance and many people will not attend social engagements because of their lack of confidence in their appearance. Giving you back that confidence in your appearance is what orthodontic work does. Having a beautiful smile makes anyone feel better.

Business, doctors and lists

The internet has changed the way many of us do business. It has created avenues for businesses and services that actually enhance them. One such advancement brought on by the internet is email lists. You find them everywhere and you may even be a part of one and you do not even know it. Being able to have information as fast as an email is a definite bonus. For the provider of the emails it is cheaper then mailing lists. Speed of delivery is especially important if we are talking about health issues. Being part of a doctor email list can get you the information you need when you need it. The world of medicine is changing everyday with new advancements and discoveries always on the horizon. Being on a doctor mailing list can let you know of any information regarding health issues that may effect the way we live our lives or the foods we eat. Benefits such as a physician mailing list is just one of the many benefits we get from our computers every day. We do our business on our computers, socialize on our computers and play on our computers. It only makes sense that we would find medical information on them as well.

Rodeos and dentists

On a trip to Texas to visit friends we were shown some of the fun things to do in Texas. It was our first trip to San Antonio so having someone show us around made it that much more fun. It was a great place to enjoy. We ate some delicious foods and then we went to watch cowboys working on their rodeo skills. They were amazing and very focused. When they took turns with their ropes we were all gathered around to see their talents. When a rope slapped the face of it’s handler he quickly smiled with startled eyes to tell everyone he was OK. When he smiled it revealed two front teeth missing! They were in his rope! He had to take a quick trip to the San Antonio Texas Dentist to get his mouth repaired and it reminded us how dangerous being a cowboy is even without the bulls and horses. I would imagine all of the cowboys keep the San Antonio Cosmetic Dentistry business offices filled. Cosmetic Dentists can do so many things to give you a perfect smile whether it be correcting an injury or straightening a crooked smile we have had cosmetic dentistry done and the results we amazing.

Skin and how to exfoliate

We want to take care of our bodies on the inside and the outside. We try to eat right so we will be able to achieve our personal best. By eating right we are able to give our entire bodies the minerals and vitamins they need to do what they are designed to do. We need to do more then just eat right if we are going to take care of our skin. Although eating right does effect our skin there are other basics that we need to give our skin the elasticity that it needs to stay young. When we are in he sun we need to use sun screen. Our skin is constantly shedding. We have dry dead skin on our bodies everyday as the old skin is peeling away and the newer skin takes it’s place if only for a few hours. To give our skin a healthy and soft look we have to know how to exfoliate. To exfoliate is to remove the old skin as it sheds. There are so many body scrubs to help you do this. There are sugar body scrubs that are designed to give you softer and smoother skin that will have a healthier glow. You can get this scrub online and begin your skin care program as soon as you get it. You will be glad you did when you see the results from well exfoliated skin.

Exercise and supplements

The goal for most people I believe is to feel and look their best. My goal is no different. I want to keep my body functioning as it is suppose to and looking toned. Personal best is different for everyone because it is their personal best. You know when you have achieved you goal because you feel it. You have energy and you feel healthy. Your skin even sows a brighter look when you are healthy. I also think everyone would enjoy having a reasonable amount of muscle mass but we have friends that take the word reasonable and stretch it! We have several friends that are really into the bodybuilding world. Everything they eat has a purpose. The exercise constantly. They take supplements such as prohormones and all that is in their world is about their bodies. That is more then I could handle. They of course are single and I am a family man which means their lifestyle would not work for me but even if it could I do not think that is for me. They are fully dedicated to nothing but themselves. The results are bodies that look like they were carved from stone. They are truly a work of art. The rest of us can just sit back and enjoy the show.

Medical industry being levied

We read a lot about the medical industry being levied with lawsuits. There is no lawsuit sadder then that brought against a medical company due to injury of a child. I suppose it is because I am a parent myself and I know how much we do for the safety of our children. The thoughts that a medication prescribed during a pregnancy could result in a baby being born with a birth defect makes me cringe. There is a birth defects lawsuit being brought against the makers of the popular antidepressant drugs of Topamax, Zoloft, Paxil, Prozac, Depakote and Lexapro. Mothers are at a 6% higher risk of having a baby born with a heart and lung birth defect when taking these medications during pregnancy. This would be devastating for parents to know this could have been prevented. This lawsuit should get the word out to other parents facing this same decision of what drugs are actually safe during pregnancy.

Niecy Nash is a multi-talented actress

Guest written by our friend Clara Castro

My favorite actress is Niecy Nash and she is best known for her role as an officer in Reno 911. She was born on February 23, 1970 in Palmdale, California. Her name is Carole Denise Ensley and has three children and is engaged to be married. She can be heard from a mile away and always wears a flower in her hair. I enjoy watching Niecy Nash because she is truly funny and brings a certain dynamic to the roles she takes. She gives the truth in a blunt matter and has a very no nonsense attitude, which is why I think her role as a deputy officer in Reno 911 was great. She was done cinematic movies, television shows and even a show centered around her.(expertsatellite.com)

Out of all of her roles I loved her the most in Reno 911 and watched every episode. She plays a deputy officer named Raineesha Williams who taker her authority to the max and sometimes more. I love that Niecy Nash gives such a great performance that I can always tell its her. She has done voice overs for the shows American Dad, The Cleveland Show and Horton Hears A Who and was very funny. She has branched out and hosted a show called Cleaning House where she helped many families organize their cluttered houses and their lives.

 

Support, pros and uniforms

When we would go to a popular dieting program we were met at the door with a polite smile and lots of support. Everyone was dressed in their scrub sets as they carefully weighed us and gave each of us support. They certainly had everything together to help their clients achieve their goals. They spoke of everything we were doing as a lifestyle change. After all we all want to be healthy so we can live the best life possible at our personal best. As I was waiting one day on what was sure to be a lecture on self control I began thinking about how many professionals actually wear scrub sets as a uniform. It is no wonder websites such as http://www.blueskyscrubs.com/ are really busy filling orders. People have to buy all of those scrubs somewhere. In our area I do not see a big scrubs discount store. I suppose most people buy them online so they can get them for an affordable price. My sister works as a nurse and is able to find her scrubs online saving her a lot of time and money. Besides that who does not love shopping online? It is quick and easy with a bigger selection then any where else and you can do it in your PJ’s.

How to Use a Punching Bag

This video covers how to use a punching bag. From my experience until you get used to punching a bag use a hand wrap or boxing gloves. Due to the weight of the punching bag, when punching it your wrists give way. Be sure to go full speed and fast strike gets you wind going fast and keep going until you cannot punch anymore.

Vancouver hotel near Coal harbour

Anyone that is familiar with Vancouver knows how beautiful Coal Harbour is. It is not hard to understand why so many people are drawn to this area. There is a Vancouver hotel that is located in Coal Harbour that knows how beautiful it’s surroundings are so they designed the hotel with floor to ceiling windows so the beautiful mountains and waterways would be enjoyed even when in doors. There is so much to do from museums to galleries and shopping. Of course when the day is wrapping up there are certainly restaurants for everyone to enjoy.

Watching nature has been a hobby of ours for many years and these magnificent creatures offer a show when ever you see them. There are eco tours that you can enjoy by boat as well as ocean rapids that you can ride which are safe and exciting. For those that enjoy fishing this would be the ultimate adventure with the salmon filled waters just waiting to be explored. After all of this activity you can relax in the spa retreat. Now that is a getaway.

Budgets, discounts and scrubs

If there is one thing that everyone has in common today it is watching our budgets. People are becoming more aware of the money they spend. For many that means doing the same things but doing it cheaper. For instance, if you can save money on something you need then you are going to buy what you need from that source. This brings us to our basic needs. People in the medical field use scrubs. Knowing that you can get discount scrubs online people naturally will go to http://www.blueskyscrubs.com/ to get their scrubs. Being able to save a lot of money and still have the name brands of scrubs that everyone is use to makes this online store a very important store to anyone in the medical field that uses scrubs. We save everywhere we can to stretch our budgets then we can get more for each dollar.

Time, lives and Charleston homes

It only makes good sense if you are going to buy a home that you would want a realtor from the same area. One that has worked in the area for an extended period of time and if you can find one that also lives in the area so they know it inside and out. After all when you buy a home you are buying into the neighborhood as well. If I am looking for a home in Charleston I would want a realtor that is familiar with Charleston homes to show me the homes that best fit our lifestyle as well as the neighborhood that best fits it as well. After all a home is a very personal part of our lives and it needs to compliment our lifestyles.

Animal chews and bully sticks for dogs

All of the pets owners that we talk to would do anything for their dogs especially if it means their beloved pets living longer. More then ever many people are more into the natural things when it comes to our health and the health of our animals. It just makes sense that something natural would be better for us then something that is processed and man made. This carries true through everything we do in life including our dog chews. There are bully sticks for dogs that are made from grass fed cattle in Brazil. They promote good dental care for our dogs teeth and gums. Healthy teeth and gums means better health and a longer life for our pets.

Changing Our Evolutionary Path

 

Content by Kyle Lowe

It’s easy to forget about how small we really are. After all, we all lead busy lives. We rush out of our houses in the morning, we rush through the work day, and then we rush back to our homes at the end of it all. We’re all at the centers of our very own universes, really. Of course, it doesn’t take much to undo this illusion, and that’s exactly what The Botany of Desire seeks to do.

It’s odd to think about, but we, as humans, have had a huge impact on the overall development of our global ecosystem. Our wants and our desires are truly manifested in our surroundings. When we decide that we like a certain plant or animal, we make sure to breed it and keep it around for future generations (generally speaking). Of course, by doing so, we irreversibly alter the “natural” evolutionary plans of the planet.

The Botany of Desire takes its argument a step further, though, positing that plants have actually had a profound impact on OUR development as a species. We have been tricked by these plants, essentially; they’ve tricked us into breeding them and keeping them around. As such, the plants have had an impact on our behavior (and our overall development).

Truly, The Botany of Desire is one of the best movies that I’ve ever seen on satalite tv specials. If you haven’t already seen it, then I recommend that you watch it as soon as possible.

Work, your feet and shoes

The last couple of years we have been buying work shoes that have been really comfortable. My wife has bought them for me and I do not know where she gets them. She is a really good shoe shopper for herself so she has decided that she would take me under her wing and buy my shoes as well. I love it because all I have to do is open my closet and put them on. That is what I call service! Of course for every pair of my shoes I am sure there are several pair of hers ordered as well as for the children but it is worth it to be able to just have mine appear.

Investments, opportunities and trading

If you are someone that has been thinking about getting into the day trading market and you are not certain how to get started there is a website that has the information you may need. It is a day trading ceneter. It has tips and information for seasoned investors as well as those that are just starting out and choosing their first investing opportunities. It can be risky when you invest in the market so being informed is your best chance at a successful outcome. Being careful with how much you invest and investing wisely with informed decisions are the cornerstones to successful investing. We have many friends that have been in the day trading market for a long time. They have lost and made a lot of money. Of course they make much more then they loose. They are constantly reading tips about the existing investment markets. They make informed decisions and by doing that they have been able to set themselves up for retirement and buy their homes as well as travel on some really spectacular vacations. They are always careful how much they invest so if they loose they will not effect the money they have saved.

Working on my Sonoma

I have a pickup that I bought several years ago from car dealer in northern Alabama. At the time of purchase it was a used Sonoma truck by Chevrolet. A 1998 truck model with orange paint to be exact. From the first day I bought the truck it was apparent that I  had to purchase and install new headlights. The only makers of the headlamps were OEM Car Parts. These headlights are very complicated with the brake and turn signal light and the headlight all built in each unit, one for the drivers side and different for the passenger side. Once I put the new headlights in, what a difference my view at night was, kinda like night and day. Joke intended. Over the years I have had to put on other OEM Auto Parts, like an alternator and brake pads. The alternator I put on my self, there was a lot of pressure put on when mounting to keep the belt in place once I tighten the bolts that holds the alternator to the engine block. The brake pads I buy, my neighbor happens to be a Certified Mechanic. He manages to pop them in, in just a few minutes. My neighbor comes in very handy from time to time.

Specifications for everything

In the military industry there are specifications for everything. Anything purchased by the military has to meet or exceed what has been stated for it’s specifications. This is also true for their Custom Labels. There is a company that can actual make a Custom Label to exact specifications for the application it is intended. Whether it be commercial or industrial or even the military they can do the graphics needed. If you enter a military base you see these labels everywhere. Getting on and off of planes and all around some of the dangerous equipment you will see the signs with warnings or instructions. These labels provide important information and they have to be able to stand up to the job of remaining in place.

Outdoor grilling, summer and a Weber genesis E320

When we remodeled our outdoor living space we made certain and left plenty of room for our grill. For us grilling is a big part of summer so we make certain we are ready for it every year. We stock up the tools and products we will need for the year ahead of time. That way when company comes, and it always comes, we are ready to toss on another of what ever we are cooking. I noticed this year Weber has a Weber genesis E320 model. I want to take a closer look at it because we all know Weber puts out good grills.

Different people have different ideas of what they want their dining areas to look like. They are such important rooms. We have our family and friends over to gather around our tables on special occasions so we want everything to be just right.

Parents, home and a curio

As we were helping my parents move to their new home I saw how my wife was admiring their curio. When I asked her about it she said who had not noticed how ornate it was before. She loved it. A short time later my mother told me that she thought the store she had purchased that cabinet form may no longer be in business. I told her not to worry the internet has everything on it and I felt sure I could find one at least similar. I was right. We found a website that has a huge selection of the major cabinet makers. We found one very similar to the one my parents have. This is going to be a big surprise for her and I can not wait. My parents want to be here when it arrives as well. She is going to flip!

Multi-functional pieces and recliner sofas

It is so nice to shop for furniture when you can find multi-functional pieces. We found recliner sofas that can act as a relaxing chair or a big soft comfy sofa. This is a good thing because you are able to have two things without taking up extra space. We were able to put two of the recliner sofas in our family room. We love it so we can relax and enjoy being in the room whether we want to relax and lay back or just sit and enjoy life.

Updating, changes and sofa sets

When we decided to do some updating we thought it would just take a little bit of paint and a few small changes. Once we got into it we found ourselves looking at sofa sets and coffee tables as well. I am glad it is all over and the end result was well worth it. We still have a couple of rooms to go so I am enjoying our break but when it is finished it is well worth the trouble because it creates something you can be proud of. It surprised me how comfortable we had gotten with some of our furniture. We like to relax in our home but we do not want our furniture to!

Moving, running and jogger stroller

We helped my sister move from their tiny apartment into her new home. They had wanted to buy a home for a long time and now that they had a little one it was time. We loaded the moving van with all of their things from her jogger stroller to her dining table and headed off to their new home. It was a time of great excitement as we carefully placed each thing in it’s place. They had not acquired a lot of things because they wanted to wait until they had their home to buy furniture. It was an easy move and now they are beginning the phase of furniture shopping.

Birthday and a curio cabinet

My wife’s birthday is just around the corner. This will be the easiest shopping trip ever. She wants to get a new curio cabinet. She found a website online that has a lot of different styles from many of the top brands of cabinets. She can navigate the website easily and find the one that she is wanting. It is hard for me to pick her one out because she has an idea of where she is wanting to place it and what she is wanting to put into it. Besides that picking it out is half the fun!

Memories in the twin over full bunk beds

When we go on vacation we have a small place by the lake. It is fun to go and just spend some time. One of our children’s favorite things about going to the lake is they love their bunk beds. They have twin over full bunk beds and for them it is like a camping trip to enjoy spending time together. At home they each have their own room so when they spend time like this together it is special for them. They are making memories and that is what makes life fun. We have heard them talking for hours at night. Laughing and sharing is what makes them sisters.

Weber grill, cooking and family fun

Our summers are filled with family fun. We gather around the pool and just enjoy being together. Our cooking apparatus like a Weber grill does not get a break all summer. We cook lunch and dinner on it and enjoy the many different flavors you can get while grilling. Some people want the grill marks and others do not. I have been grilling so long I have created techniques to give everyone what they want and that is delicious meals. You can cook anything on the grill from chicken to hamburgers to hotdogs and steaks and they all are juicy and delicious. We also cook our favorites, veggies and potatoes on our busy grill.

Moved it all from south shore platform beds

A friend of ours asked us if we would help them move. He mentioned there were a few pieces of furniture and some game tables but nothing too crazy. In our heads we thought it may take an hour at the most so we would run over there and load up the trucks and head out. The truth is he had an entire house full of furniture. We loaded furniture for many trips into the night. We moved it all from his professional sized pool table to his south shore platform beds. When it all was over we decided to never trust his word again. When he says it will only take a minute we plan for a week long venture!

Dining tables celebrating holidays and events

We have always enjoyed spending time around our dining room table. We use it for eating and also for fun. We have spent hours doing arts and crafts all gathered sprinkling glitter together. We have spent time at our dining tables through the years celebrating holidays and events. Our dining room table is a big part of our family because it is in most all pictures of us as we gather and are laughing together. It is a part of us and our family. That is what all families should have, a big dining room table filled with family and friends sharing together. Life is about events. We have found some really nice dining room tables online. You can order them and have them sent to your home. That is the way to shop.

Bedroom should be a reflection

When we look at our bedrooms we want them to have a relaxing quality to them. We want to be able to go to our rooms and feel totally relaxed and enjoy the calming feeling of our space. I think our bedroom should be a reflection of who we are in design but it also has to be functional. For us our entire house has that certain style that is uniquely us but our children have bedrooms that are all about them! They each enjoyed styling their own space in a very personal way. As with anything a child does it does change as they get a little older each year. Of course change is good for all of us occasionally.

Reward and a office chair

When we went into business for ourselves we set a goal that we wanted to achieve. When we met that goal we would reward ourselves with a nice office chair. We had the chair we wanted all picked out and we never lost focus that it would be ours if we worked for it. We met our goal quickly and we were able to get the chair that we wanted. After a short time from that we were able to get a matching chair for our other desk. The rewards keep coming as our business grows but we never forget the thrill of our first earned office chair.

We call “Their” office chairs

In our office you know you have arrived when you get a good office chair. It has been through the years that the older chairs belonged to or become claimed by the senior staff. As positions change the chairs go with them. After a while with the company we have enough chairs that each of the senior staff have what we call “their” office chairs and then everyone had theirs. As time has passed we are now slowly all getting our own chair and we are able to pick it out. Of course the higher up you are the bigger your allowance is for your chair.

Motivated behind desks

One way to get ourselves motivated to get out from behind our desks and exercise is the arrangement of our work areas. Having a desk that is easily accessible makes for a better productive office. When you feel more productive you have more energy and are more likely to be active. Keeping your work area neat is another motivator when it comes to feeling more in control and more active. We bought a new desk for our office and rearranged the furniture. The results were a faster work pace and a more productive environment. Look around your work space is there anything you want to change to give your day a boost?

Special memories and coffee tables

When I think about how many times we moved when we were younger it gives me chills. The sight of our coffee tables on the back of our friends trucks as we all got together after a full days work to move us into the night is a special memory that I will always remember. When I look at the furniture we have now that has definitely improved through the years I can not imagine seeing them tied to the back of a pick up truck heading out into the night. We have come a long way and I would not trade my memories for anything!

The bathroom like something in a magazine

When my aunt said she had redone her bathroom she was not kidding. She had remodeled her bathroom into something you would find in a magazine. When we took our first look we were surprised to see everything in it was white. There are some colors tastefully placed but the most part of the bathroom is white. The fixtures and the flooring as well as the wood vanity is white. The color and the design together give her bathroom a cool crisp look. Having had seven children she said she was wanting to do something she would not have dared do before and white is daring.

The coolest twin over twin beds

We found the coolest twin over twin beds for our children. They are graduating from little beds and this is the next step. They are so excited to sleep in big kid beds. They have picked out their bedspreads and they are so happy they are finally grown enough to sleep in the same type of beds as their much older siblings! We found the bunk beds we chose online. There are so many styles and designs to choose from we were able to find the perfect fit for our little ones. Once they grow up a little the beds can come apart if we need them to but I do not think that will happen!

Lives, changes and different beds

There are so many things that bring about change in our lives. One thing that can really get the feeling of good things to come is to change your environment. This can be done with just a few small changes or maybe you want something big. When we bought our new home we felt that it did not have that new feel that we thought it would in our bedroom. We then started looking into the many different beds that there were to choose from. We picked the one we liked and we did not even have to change our end tables to match they matched already! It is amazing what a different a little change can make to a room.
