Today I want to talk about fleas. Yes you heard that right fleas. They seem to be pretty pesky this years and my poor dog looks like he has a mohawk he has eaten that much of his hair off of his body. Scoobies a big dog about 100 lbs and he looks so funny right now. We have done front line and pills but they aren't helping much. I ran a cross a great article How to Get Rid of Fleas Naturally which you can read here www.wikihow.com/Get-Rid-of-Fleas-Nat urally
I hope this helps someone get rid of those pesky little boogers.
I also ran across something in our local newspaper that I got a BIG kick out of. It's a typing error but so worth my funny for the day. It is actually the DOOBIE BROTHERS that will be playing....
Now I know why so many young men are going to be there..
Have a blessed Friday everyone and let the weekend begin ~ Donna
I wanted to thank everyone for stopping by my blog "Name five non-scale victories you have accomplished" and making it a featured blog. The results are in and many people do not just rely on those scale numbers. Whew!!!!!!!!! What a relief.
So today is a blessing. I'm up! I'm awake! I'm ready to seize the day!
I had also forgotten that I have a three day weekend coming up due to Labor Day . For those who may not be familiar with Labor Day it is a day to celebrate the achievements of our American workforce.
My co-worker and I have had a blast this week since she's been back. There's nothing like being able to laugh-out-loud during your work day.
So I'm checking out all of the Spark e-mails this morning and noticed the above pictures (thank you SP) in one of them. And I got to thinking about the entire concept behind SP to begin with and how SparkGuy says: "10+ fitness minutes--done consistently--can transform your life. This is the top strategy I used to create the SparkPeople program"
Think about that 10 minutes a day. It's not much time, but if done consistently you will begin to see results. I've been a part of SP for quite a few years. I've dropped over 50 lbs the slower way but I'm not in it for immediate results, I'm in it for life time changes. Remember my recent blog about non-scale victories? Everything adds up in time. Including that 10 minutes. 10 minutes a day x 30 days is 300 minutes x 12 months is 3600 minutes a year or 60 hours total. When you first began your journey you didn't even exercise. For most people that 10 minutes eventually begins to accumulate even more minutes until you are doing marathons and bench pressing and everything else you can think of that you could never do before.
Be your own cheerleader Heck.. be everyone elses too!!! It surely can't hurt right? Be kind to yourself. It matters. You are the only that can take care of your own body.
Now while I must say I may / or may not agree with their conclusions I believe ultimately we still seal our own fate and we decide what we put in our mouths and eat.
Their extra encouragement may sway you but you have a mouth to say NO THANKS, just like you have a mouth to put the food in.
WHEN ARE WE GOING TO STOP BLAMING EVERYTHING AROUND US AND START PLACING THE BLAME WHERE IT BELONGS??????
He says it very nicely doesn't he?
I do believe that DNA can play a part, but it's not the only thing.
I also believe we are what we make ourselves to be. It's like a promotion. You're going to work at it in order to achieve it right? Same with a healthy lifestyle. You need to work at it.
So this is my rant and rave for Monday. How about you? Are your friends / family making you fat or are you willing to owe up to the fact that you are human, you make mistakes and it all lies in your hands?
