I have a million things I should be doing right now. Mainly preparing for a 'whole house' estimate of furniture and accessories to come into our consignment gallery.
I always like to have my ducks in a row with all of the particulars I need to make the estimate go smoothly. Clipboard for inventory, my trusty I-Phone for pictures, MapQuest map printed for the location, my websites loaded up and ready to go for retail price estimates and my handy dandy tape measure.
But after checking in with my phenomenal Teddy Bear Team to rally the team with motivation I was so PLEASED to note that as a team effort we actually completed almost 31 hours of sweat instigating exercise just yesterday alone. Imagine that...we really moved mountains!
Seven astounding bears did 120 minutes of exercise (which is the ultimate daily exercise cap) and 3 more did over 80 minutes.
I have consistently been devoting 60 minutes a day...not so much for myself...but for the team and whoever I do it for I'm the winner in the end right?
I've lost 2 pounds! Yep...just by being mindful about what I put into my mouth and allowing NO EXCUSES for moving my body. Some days my back was sore...but I pushed through..this is what we need to do if we want to be healthy. We can't expect to lay around the house with no exercise and then bemoan our chubby stature...health takes COMMITMENT.
That's why I say we are the cure and we are the cause of our health choices.
I'm asking you to swear off the fake phony crap the big foodies pass off as food when it is nothing other than chemical laden, test tube cooked up CRAP!
If it doesn't come from natures vast bounty don't let it taint your beautiful bod!
Okay this takes some effort...who would think that REAL food would be so hard to find..even our fresh fruits are GMO riddled so you DO have to take the time to educate yourself and learn what you can trust as REAL and what you have to discard as tricky schemey~ FAKE!
Realize that some of the ads you see here on our beloved Spark are not necessarily healthy...remember they are a business and they are in business to garner profit. The big foodies sneak in their deceit wherever they can. Spark makes those ads available so that we can all have this website free of charge...remember think and RESEARCH before you believe.
AND search out PURE water and hydrate yourself well. NOTHING replaces pure water..not chemical laden sodas, not coffee, not energy drinks, or juice or tea! Research the water brands that you can trust and give your business to them...maybe someday the big foodie corps will realize we consumers aren't just a bunch of sheep waiting to be fed their next deadly but profitable concoctions...vote with your wallet...that's the only thing they understand.
We start our life being 99% water, as fetuses. When we are born we are 90% water, and by the time we reach adulthood we are down to 70% water. If we reach old age we are probably about 50% water. Mostly throughout our lives we exist as mostly water.
But most of us are severely dehydrated which we often mistake as hunger. So we head for the food sack instead of the water bottle.
Chronic dehydration will kill you....we all know this..we can exist for a long time without food but only a few days with no water.
Every organ in your body can only function according to the energy that we give to it. Energy is generated in our bodies through the water we drink...think about it if we don't drink enough we greatly compromise our digestive system...at least 50% of constipation is because of poor water consumption.
We need water to eliminate toxins from the body through the skin, the bowels, the kidneys and the bladder. A dehydrated body has a difficult time eliminating toxins, the solution to pollution is dilution! HEY...aren't I the clever one!
All messages from the brain throughout the body are sent through electrical currents, water is the carrier of the conduits for that electricity.
All nutrients for the body can be delivered through the cell only in water. If you are chronically dehydrated, you are literally starving yourself of nutrients.
Chronic dehydration equals chronic fatigue.
So you get the gest of the above information...water is essential to rebuild every cell, tissue, and organ in our bodies. If we are chronically dehydrated, we are not regenerating properly. We are a water-dependent, water-burning machine and this fuel must be replaced constantly.
Distilled water with lemon slices and juice is a GREAT way to start your morning.
It can help remove the inorganic minerals out of the joints which cause stiffness as we age. If you don't detoxify those lovely organs with tons of water and some fasting from time to time they actually harden...yuck...no wonder they can't support us. No wonder we stiffen and have trouble walking and standing up straight...our poor organs are actually solidifying. They just can't keep up with all of the toxic waste we bombard them with daily.
Kick those chemical laden sodas to the side. STOP using artificial sweeteners that can cause strokes! Think about the convenience of packaged foods and throwing something in the microwave that is bathed with the chemicals of the plastic container that you are cooking it in and then shoving into your poor body. Do you want convenience today and ill health tomorrow...that's really what it all boils down to.
We just keep throwing more and more pollution into our body until our organs finally yell UNCLE...then we wonder what the heck happened.
Hey...I'm right there with you...so this pep talk is as much for me as it is for you my dear friends!
Be kind to yourself...be smart about your organs! You do need some of the minerals that are removed from distilled water so adding a pinch of UNREFINED sea salt helps balance it more. Distilled water is probably about the purest water you can find..but there are some other commercial brands that are better than others. Google healthy water.
The cell is immortal, it is merely the fluid in which it floats that degenerates. This theory was proven by a well known research experiment conducted by Nobel Prize winner Dr. Alexis Carrell.
He was able to keep a chicken heart alive just by changing the fluids around it each day. By renewing the fluid at regular intervals, and giving the cells what they required for nutrition it stayed alive for a very long time until he went on vacation and his assistant forgot to change the fluids...consequence the heart died immediately!
Something to think about when you want to reach for a twinkie...have a glass of water with lemon instead.

AND always remember...we are the CURE...or we are the CAUSE of the state of health we are in.
Now off to my estimate with a Spark bottle of distilled water/ lemon slices and a tiny pinch of unrefined sea salt!
Stay sparky my dear buddys...if I learn something you are going to know about it too...that's what we do...look out for each other!
