Thu, 26 Jul 2012 09:57:20 EST High Risk Yields http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4876620 Taking a risk is a great way to get out Fri, 11 May 2012 07:47:40 EST Engagement: http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4810229 Sometimes the most proactive thing we can do in a conflict is walk away. <BR> We all have those situations with people where things get very heated, and the other person has either lost it, or is about to. <BR> <BR> Thu, 29 Mar 2012 08:15:39 EST Situations http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4805294 Every situation in life is a shared story of destiny playing itself out. <BR> This is an important lesson to remember: As trivial or meaningless as things seem there is always a cosmic dance taking place. <BR> Mon, 26 Mar 2012 10:15:28 EST I'll begin tomorrow: http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4754540 Something my wife often says is that every time it’s time to start a diet or quit drinking, we say, “I’ll begin tomorrow.” <BR> But when we want something from God, we want it now. <BR> Life doesn’t work that way. <BR> If you want something, then you have to change. <BR> <BR> What do you have to change? <BR> That is for you to figure out. All I can tell you is that you can’t put things off until tomorrow and expect life to give you what you want today. Fri, 24 Feb 2012 07:56:31 EST Exercise: http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4748876 No matter what I do in changing my life style and my eating habits I find that without exercise as if I have done nothing, The day I do the exercise my body feels good, my temper becomes cool and relations to others specially my wife and son seems to be normal so take it or leave it I think one should exercise daily not to loose weight or to get better health but to live with others normally and pleasantly. Tue, 21 Feb 2012 05:08:26 EST Our children and the sweets http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4742941 We all try to make our children good eaters. we teach them that to eat well there is a prize. <BR> When we grow up the prize become the sweets after dinner <BR> later you learn that these are the worse to your health. <BR> Stop them!!!!............... you can't. <BR> What is the answer <BR> You SAY Fri, 17 Feb 2012 07:57:43 EST The extra mile http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4731679 Success comes when you go the extra mile. <BR> <BR> IS THIS CORRECT ? <BR> <BR> Some dietitians don't agree. <BR> I personally feel that it is correct and can apply to most of ways of life. Fri, 10 Feb 2012 00:54:15 EST TRUST IN SELF: http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4723622 The trust in one's self is always there, never changing, forever willing and able to fulfill our every desire, to answer our every prayer.

All the rest is mere commentary.” <BR> <BR> This is the Answer that JESUS CHRIST gave to one of his students. <BR> <BR> Today, There is no better than what Jesus taught: learn to love yourself, and share that love with others. Thu, 19 Jan 2012 00:42:58 EST Whirlpool http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4688700 Physically, relaxing in a whirlpool tub will help ease the pain of aching muscles and joints. The combination of warm water and the massage like bubbling of the jets will relax tense muscles and improve blood circulation which in general helps your body. Sore joints will be more comfortable and muscles will relax. As blood flow increases, nutrients are brought to all the body systems faster, and wastes are taken away at an equally fast pace Wed, 18 Jan 2012 09:47:34 EST Bad Habits http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4681657 I agree with all of you that being social is one way to loose bad habits. <BR> <BR> being a spark people member makes you more social and this will encourage you more in becoming more healthier and gradually loose all bad habits you got. <BR> <BR> <em>306</em> Sun, 15 Jan 2012 09:24:39 EST +65 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4679052 A senior man has other targets when he does his exercises especially if his BMI is just above the required. <BR> He needs to achieve a pulse rate 60 - 80 % of his resting rate and sweating so he gets the benefit of trying to open his heart ( coronary artery collateral) that is the unopened small blood vessels that are nor needed in his ordinary daily life. <BR> Opening these are beneficial in case the major ones get blocked by the plagues of cholesterol.

Sat, 24 Dec 2011 04:45:09 EST Faulty statements http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4635415 today in the health news there is a letter which says that the journal SCIENCE has reported that scientists have discovered the virus which causes chronic fatigue syndrome, and that this report is wrong and they pulled it out. <BR> One has to be careful in believing anything comes on papers, one has to wait for others to evaluate, and this is very important in evaluating all these articles written on nutrition and so forth. Thu, 22 Dec 2011 16:51:31 EST Blame yourself: http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4629931 It’s tempting to blame our parents or children for our chaos.

But what if there can be no peace unless the wrong is forgiven? <BR> <BR> Tue, 13 Dec 2011 09:59:49 EST Mastering the course http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4618669 Before we can live in this world in a meaningful way, <BR> We must rid ourselves of the image that we are helpless, and imagine ourselves as masters of the course of our lives.
