Some ways I feel healthier today because of my health change

I feel more energetic, and I enjoy eating foods that promote healthy choices. Hopefully my doctor will notice this when I have my physical this year.


Excuses for Not Exercising

Friday, April 26, 2013

I can find thousands of reasons not to exercise today. The weather outside is great and I'm off from my full time job. I think don't have any excuses at all not to go jogging or walking today

If Scales didn't exist

Friday, December 14, 2012

I would be one happy brother. To measure my weight I would use my energy level as a guide. The size of my clothes would be another indicator of my weight. As a diabetic my blood sugar level could be another indicator of my weight.

    The scales are important, they speak truth, just not down to the pound. Salt, added muscle, time of day, water all can change things by several pounds.

I had terrible problems with my blood sugar and hunger cravings until I gave up carbs. If you are interested look into the great book "Wheat Belly" or the HFLC (High fat low carb) diet.

Bacon and eggs in the morning can control hunger most of the day, (as long as you don't add toast or a carb).

Keep at it and you will achieve your goals.

Ten years from now!

Wow, that is thought provoking! I will be fifty five years old and It scares me some. Currently I do have some health issues, but hopefully I will have them under control by then.

    Oh lordy...I'd be almost 74..if I am still alive!

And it is your tomorrow, so start working up towards it today. What you make of your tomorrows is up to YOU, what YOU do today.

This isn't just a dress rehearsal. This is your life. Wake and give thanks every morning that you have a new day, Eat Smart, drink water, Move enough, Pray, Play, learn something, listen to music, and end every night by giving thanks for who you have, what you have , what you've accomplished, and all that is good!

Controling Your Anger in the Work Place

Friday, October 19, 2007

In the last month or so, I have found my self thinking a lot of unhealthy thoughts at the work place. The retail world has become so competitive, fast paste and stress levels are at an all time high. I have found my self saying curse words at my coworkers ( not out load of course) who work at a very slow paste. I feel like I have become a drill sargeant and I have lost the passion I once had for my coworkers. My manager is receiving a lot of pressure (called accountability) from her manager and is passing it down to us (section managers and leads) and I have passed it on to my coworkers. The cycle need to be broken, but I have not found the solution. The right thing to do, would be to empower the slow folks and teach them sratergies to be more productive. But there is not enough time in an eight hour shift.
