Something has to be done

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

The huge companies have infiltrated all areas of govt which also go right down to personal health. Be more like Europe and say no to these GMOs. etc.
This was in my inbox today and just wanted to share... If I am not to share this please just let me know and I will delete it. There is nothing offensive just sad, very sad that so many peole can't fight a huge company but in Europe they don't stand for it.

    I agree that eating as 'cleanly' and healthily as possible is sadly not a priority for most Americans. However, as a geneticist, the topic of GMOs is always a sticky one for me. I know how genes are transferred between species and why, and I know the pros and cons. Certain things cause problems, and certain things are totally harmless. It's a tough topic with no one answer that will make everyone happy.
But in America in general, people are not willing to fight for anything. I believe it is mostly apathy combined with government support for the wrong programs, laziness and a complete self-centered-ness. Unless things directly affect your life in a negative way, you aren't going to get off your hiney and go out of your way to do something about it. Plus people are cheap more so than morally motivated, so it's easier and cheaper to just shop at walmart or whatever rather than support small business, local farmers, or organic producers.

    YES. Thanks for sharing the article. I'm working on a project in the next few years so that I can raise that grass-fed beef for people. It's so hard to do it and price it at a level that more people can afford. The gov't subsidizes most of the corporate ag outfits, including big feedlot growers, since the grain is subsidized, along with other things. So when small producers don't get any help at all, they have to charge more to cover the actual costs of production. I urge people to write their representatives about the Farm Bill, since that's where a lot of policy is made. We need more support for small, sustainable farms.

DAY 1

Saturday, January 19, 2013

I am back.... and this time I hope that my I can't do this streak doesn't last so long. Those aren't the streaks I am wanting. NO thanks not me anymore. Yea I write a thoughtful blog now and then, but after writing it I was like yea sure.



So read a blog from the success pages about doing it, read a blog or two others. Watched the video on the same page and with a lot of my spark buddies believeing in me, my sil giving me some ideas I went to bed feeling rather positive that I would wake up thinking I can do it.




I also found at the top of my nightstand book pile, a book that I bought and never even finished, it is 100 days of weight loss by linda spangle and it gives you small readings for 100 days and a exercise to do daily. I had got it and read it for a while, but this time, I have it and my journal down here right beside me. IT WILL GET DONE DAILY for 100 days.
100 days would seem forever, but I just did over a 100 day walking streak with Allie so know I can do a streak again. That streak is over, I did break it as I said that it would be walking allie/10,000 steps on my ped. well she wasn't able to walk with surgery, and it was so cold -30 that I didnt go out, but those are excuses as I could have joyinky walked, or did the bike something and chose not to.
Excuses are in the past, I am not getting anywhere relying on them.




I will do something "moving" everyday even the days when the pain gets to me. If I only can walk a bit then will ride, or stretch. I am positive there is some type of movement I can do daily.

As for food, that is hard for me too, but I have my cookbooks out, found some recipes that we both may eat, and this am, went through the freezer with what we have on hand.

Going out for veggies in bit and some salt sub. for the driveway as it is slippery. So now that this is written I am off here, makiing up the menu for the week coming. Thats all for the first go around... but am also not as afraid of failing when I make my exercise plan this time.



and for those that think another blog... well this is my way of thinking it out, and also I print some and put on my fridge and in my ME binder so I can actually say See I CAN think positive and DO IT.

Friday blog 2 allie

Friday, January 18, 2013

Allie is doing well, still wanting to play, still having to calm down and slow down. lol
She is not impressed with the doughnut for her neck so she can't get at her stiches, but she would agree I am sure that it is better than the collar we first put on her lol






She is out on the deck eating snow right now, wanted to go help hubby shovel but even if she wasn't recuperating she can't cos she won't stay here and too much traffic people and cars. lol

Strength and using it!!!

Friday, January 18, 2013



All this comes down to choices. WE are in charge of our choices for the most part unless we are not able to do for ourselves and are in hospital etc. and even then we can voice an opinion. Well I am not in the hospital and am still able to do for myself. SO IT IS MY CHOICE.

Hmmm interesting, cos I SAY my choice is to be healthy, fit, strong, happy, live long, live self reliant but I am certainly not living up to any of this. I am going down the road to being unhealthier, not fit nor strong, not happy with myself, and shortening my life and my self reliant capabilities.

I CHOSE STRENGTH as my word this year. Have I allready forgotten all the possibilites and hope that I had a week ago as I wrote that word and the beginning of my page over. I did say at the time, track record for resolutions and goals at this time is bad. Fall is my time of year for beginnings, but that is no reason to forget and totally abandon ship.

I enjoyed a long weekend of helping my dd and hanging out with her. It was busy, hard work and fun. But I didnt plan, didn't think, well yea I did, I thought like my reg. ole self not someone bent on working to change things for the better. We ate and we had 2 drinks. We didnt' over indulge but that amt of sugar, and wheat has messed with me ever since. I can't seem to get back on track.

Here's the thing, was I ever on a NEW improved track?? NO I know I wasn't because nothing really has changed. Meals are the same, moving hasn't changed partially from my bad cough, partially cos I CHOSE to use the excuse I don't know what to do or how. BS as I have a few dvds, I have pages from magazines, I have exercises on here. COME ON yes I want someone to come to my house and help me. I can't really afford that but did I even check it out? no......... my sister in law keeps finding excuses as she is worried she will get me to do something that will hurt my back. I don't think so.

So today, I am putting this puter up off table, getting my notebook out, my cookbooks out( my new ones, spark, clean eating, and paleo ones) and planning. I will check what I have in the freezer and go from there. I will learn new ways and make 2 meals if need be. Hubby won't try and won't eat differently cos he figures it will bother his belly. Perhpas not but won't know if he won't try.

Earlier in the month, I blogged about making these plans for exercise, certain days to dd, to work on her machines etc. and other days to work here with what I have. Well felt that was setting myself up for failure cos probably wouldn't go down when I said etc. So in not doing that, I did nothing........ kept my cough as a great excuse. Well dr did say not till I was feeling better. Sitll not 100% but getting there. I did do some arm exercises while watching biggest loser, and I don't eat anymore while watchng that lol. But cos I don't even feel as if I am exercising when I do these arm exercises I tend to say hmmm not doing this right, or enough or whatever so then I just don't. ( Caz all or nothing thinking perfectionism a tad!? naw not me... LOL) Even doing that is better than nothing but not sure why I don't feel anything or sweat. ( yes one or two are hard and I can't do them well at 5lbs but 3 is too small)

Anyway today is a snow day, we are hoping to have company, my sister in law is coming over and ANJAYS-JOURNEY and her hubby are coming in town and will stop over. Presuming these are both weather permitting. I didn't know it was supposed to snow today.

So for now I am off to get my papers, pen, books and such out. I do enjoy it, I do know how, had to do this for my work and my seniors meals, so there is no real reason why not to. It has been laziness on my part.

STRENGTH, and CHOICE are my words for today and everyday.





HUGS and hope you all find the strength to make the choices you need for your journey. and Thanks spark friends for help on the way! emoticon

Busy week good news Allie is fine after surgery

Thursday, January 17, 2013

So vet has called and said Allie is fine and ready to be picked up around 3. So that is a relief $273.00 taxes in. Whew but thats okay we had planned and saved that when we got her.

I got a lot done, all that I wanted to have done while she wasn't there to "help" me! lol
Feel good about that and pleased that finally it is all finished. Back was bad but not as bad as the other day just sweeping.

Snow has stopped and sun is coming out, a nice day out. Well going to go and fold some laundry and put that away. Soon be time to go get our baby - probably conehead! awww

hope all are doing well!!
