Morning Motivation

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

The devil is well aware of your new commitment and is launching an all out attack against you. How do you fight that? You don't. You rest in God's promises and remain confident in Him and let Him fight those battles for you! Look beyond even the bleakest circumstances, however hopeless they may seem, and remain unmoved in our faith that God is in control and has a plan for our lives. All we have to do is submit to his plan, take one day and one step at a time, knowing the best is yet to come. Remember the joy of The Lord is your strength! Neh 8:10 "My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh." (Proverbs 4:20-22 NKJV)

Have a blessed workout!

"Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy."

Your body is His temple

Thursday, June 20, 2013

When we were born God created the perfect body. Since then we have corrupted it physically and emotionally. We eat food that causes our bodies to work harder whick causes our bodies to stress and use up more energy. Athletes are not SUPERHUMAN, they have realized how to use the perfect body to their advantage. For example, when a person drinks a coke, your body has to use minerals from your bone to keep your body healthy. If this goes on for too long it will lead to osteoporosis. Your body tries to stay balanced. Your body has to work harder to try to compensate for all of the bad food/drinks you feed it.

Why do we intentionally make our bodies stress? Healthy food is energy to our bodies. Food is nothing more than that. Be aware and cautious what you put in your mouth. It is YOUR decision, so I encourage you to eat healthier. God loves you and wants you to lead a healthy life to serve Him. Your body is His temple.

    Oh Eric this is no coincidence that I was talking to my husband about this very fact this morning. We have both been struggling to clean up our diet as of late. We know what to eat and not to eat. We prayed together again this morning and asked God to help us in this area.

The timing of your blog is perfect...thank you Lord for using Eric to encourage us!

Just read your blog to my hubby.

Also the treadmill we bought today is used. We bought it from a friend who is disabled and cannot use it anymore. It is like brand new...what a blessing.

The 9 Foods You Should Never Eat (part 2)

The 9 Foods You Should Never Eat

Microwave Popcorn
Microwave popcorn bags are lined with PFOA, and when they are heated the compound leaches onto the popcorn. These chemicals are part of an expanding group of chemicals known to disrupt your endocrine system and affect your sex hormones. The EPA has ruled PFCs as "likely carcinogens," and has stated that PFOA "poses developmental and reproductive risks to humans."

Non-Organic Potatoes and OtherFresh Produce Known for High Pesticide Contamination
Your best bet is to buy only organic fruits and vegetables, as synthetic agricultural chemicals are not permissible under the USDA organic rules. That said, not all conventionally grown fruits and vegetables are subjected to the same amount of pesticide load. Fruits and vegetables with the highest pesticide load, making them the most important to buy or grow organically, include apples, cucumbers, spinach, kale and potatoes.

Table Salt
Regular 'table salt' and the salt found in processed foods are NOT identical to the salt your body really needs. Table salt contains chemicals like ferrocyanide and aluminosilicate, and added iodine, while natural salt contains many naturally occurring minerals, including trace minerals like silicon, phosphorous and vanadium. My favorite is Himalayan salt, which contains about 84 trace minerals your body needs.

Soy Protein Isolate and Other Unfermented Soy Products
Most soybeans grown in the US are genetically engineered (GE) to be "Roundup Ready." The active ingredient in Roundup is glyphosate, which disrupts cellular function and can induce many of our modern diseases, including autism. Unfermented soy has also been linked to malnutrition, digestive distress, immune-system breakdown, thyroid dysfunction, cognitive decline, reproductive disorders and infertility—even cancer and heart disease. The only soy with health benefits is organic soy that has been properly fermented, at which point their beneficial properties become available to your digestive system.

Artificial Sweeteners
Artificial sweeteners such as aspartame can stimulate your appetite, increase carbohydrate cravings, and stimulate fat storage and weight gain. The methanol formed in aspartame can wreak havoc with sensitive proteins and DNA in your body, as humans do not have the protective mechanism that allows methanol to be broken down into harmless formic acid. Toxicology testing on animals is a flawed model, as animals have this protective mechanism while humans do not, so the results do not fully apply to people.

    Thanks for the information. The only thing I eat on the list (list 1) is canned tomatoes. I make sure the cans are BPA free. It's awful that our government allows harmful ingredients in or near our food.

The 9 Foods You Should Never Eat (part 1)

Canned Tomatoes
BPA is a toxic chemical linked to reproductive abnormalities, neurological effects, heightened risk of breast and prostate cancers, diabetes, heart disease and more. To avoid this hazardous chemical, avoid canned foods entirely and stick to fresh fruits and vegetables, or switch over to brands that use glass containers instead—especially for acidic foods like tomatoes.

Processed Meats
Deli meats are typically made with meats from animals given growth hormones, antibiotics and other veterinary drugs. These meats also typically contain sodium nitrite and other chemical flavorings and dyes. Processed should be avoided entirely as processed meats increase your risk of cancer, and NO amount of processed meat is "safe." Fresh organically-raised grass-fed or pastured meats, or wild caught salmon are healthier options.

There are a myriad of unhealthy components to margarine and other butter impostors, including trans fats, free radicals, emulsifiers and preservatives, hexane and other toxic solvents. Raw milk butter, when made from grass-fed cows, is rich in beneficial conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which is known to help fight cancer and diabetes.

Vegetable Oils
Vegetable oils are highly processed, and when consumed in large amounts, they distort the important omega-6 to omega-3 ratio. Vegetable oils can oxidize good cholesterol, turning it into bad cholesterol. Coconut oil is best for cooking as it is not very susceptible to heat damage. It's also one of the most unique and beneficial fats for your body. Olive oil is easily damaged by heat and is best reserved for drizzling cold over salad.
