My Nephew Dancing

Is Your Water Toxic?

Okay so I've been watching Dr. Oz again and I just wanted to let other people know as well.

Most of our Water is Toxic and we don't even know it.

Some things Dr. Oz suggested is:

1. Get your Municipal Water Report get it from City Council or CCR. By Law it has to be available in your town.

* I got my Water quality report from WSSC.

2. Get a All in One Drinking Water Test

3. Use a Water Filter (there are several different kinds)

4. Get a Carbon Filter for your Shower

I have a Filtration system from Rainsoft that works really good. It filtrates all the water in my entire house. I started using it because they came out to my home years ago and did a water test when I was living in a townhouse and I wasn't pleased with the results so I purchased it and I took it with me when I moved into a Single Family Home. Upkeep of the system is important to keep it filtering the water properly.

Please have your water checked. It's important for you health. Some of us are being filled with toxins and bacteria that is all coming from our drinking water. On Dr. Oz's show he talked about a family in West Virginia whos children were getting rotten teeth from the water and whos brother died from a brain tumor that also came from the water.

Merry Christmas...Have a Safe & Happy Holiday!

Good Morning Everyone,

It is Christmas morning. Merry Christmas to all of you. I am wishing everyone and very safe and happy holiday. I got up this morning and watched a episode of Dr. Oz on my DVR and am so glad I did. Lately I have found myself drinking more alcohol than normal. I am not a avid drinker but lately I have enjoyed a glass of Verde with my seafood meals and I think I need to cut back. Dr. Oz reassured me of that fact this morning. He stated that Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years are the 3 biggest holidays for Heart Attacks.

These are 3 things you can do to prevent a Heart Attack during this Holiday Season:

  1. Limit your Alcohol Intake The chemicals in alcohol can be toxic and irritating to heart muscle. And drinking alcohol in excess can trigger atrial fibrillation, an irregular heartbeat that increases your risk of stroke, heart attack, and heart failure.
  2. Watch your Stress Levels Planning, shopping, wrapping, cleaning, cooking, hosting -- your to-do list balloons at the holidays. Add high expectations that the big day goes well, and your stress level can soar. Rising stress hormones elevate your blood pressure and heart rate, setting the stage for a heart attack.
  3. Be Weary of eating High Fat Meals Research has shown that eating one high fat meal can render your arteries less effective at pumping blood for up to 12 hours. Fat can cause the lining of your arteries to spasm, reducing the space for blood to flow. At the holidays when one big meal follows another, your arteries have few chances to recover from the damage.
I want us all to make it into the New Year so please be careful out there everyone and enjoy your Holiday. Be mindful of what you eat, drink and don't let anything stress you out. Love you all! Until next time......

My Knees are Killing Me

Every morning when I wake up my knees are killing me. I guess it's because they are stiff because sometimes when i sit for long periods of time they are are stiff and hurt as well. I have been putting off physical therapy for a while now. I was told I had arthritis in my knees. At first I used supplements and drinks to try to aid it but that's not good enough. I know weightloss will help it a great deal and that should be my #1 focus.

It's just hard but the new year is nearing and it's time to stop putting off things and get them done. I admit I am a huge procrastinator and that keeps me from doing so many things, not just this. I need to get a handle on my procrastination for real. Ugh! My knees hurting makes me feel so old. I'm not even 40 yet and on some mornings I'm limping around like a old lady.

Time to put up or shut up and get things done. I had a treadmill that I sold because I was told by my doctor that walking was bad for my knees plus I hate the treadmill. It is awfully boring. I'd rather walk outside around the track or something. I also have a exercise bike but I need a better one. I bought the cheapest one they had being cheap but I need something better. I'm gonna really have to invest in myself more but that's another post for another day. Later.

Thank God it's Friday!

Hello Everyone, It's Friday and I am so glad about it. I had a very eventful day yesterday. Went to my company holiday party at Maggiano's. We had a good time. Although my job is nutty is a fruitcake, I love it there. It's simple, laidback and alot of fun at times. It's not all stuffy like most corporate jobs. I've been there for going on 6 years now. Been there longer than I've been at any job...ever.

I was so pleased to have received a Holiday Bonus. That a was blessing in and of itself. Thank you Jesus for that blessing in my life. I am going to try my best not to spend it all. I plan to give my kids money for Christmas from it and that's about. I will spend some of it on whichever weight loss program I decide to join. I have also contemplated doing something that includes the meals that I eat like Nutrisystem or something. I don't know. I will figure out something by the end of the year. Would love to hear your suggestions. Til next time. Enjoy your weekend and Be Safe!

Decisions, Decisions

I'm trying to decide which Weight Loss program I should do for the new year. I'm debating between Herbal Life, Weight Watchers and the 4 day diet which is also 50 million

Maybe I'll try them all. I don't know. I need to decide within the next few weeks cause the new year is fast approaching. If you have any thoughts, let me know. I'll let you know what I decide.

I'll talk to you later....Peace!
