Oh Great Spirit,
Whose voice I hear in the winds,
And whose breath gives life to all the world, hear me! I am small and weak,
I need your strength and wisdom.
Let me walk in beauty, and make my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunset. Make my hands respect the things you have made and my ears sharp to hear your voice. Make me wise so that I may understand
the things you have taught my people.
Let me learn the lessons you have hidden
in every leaf and rock.
I seek strength,
not to be greater than my brother,
but to fight my greatest enemy –
myself.
Make me always ready to come to you with clean hands and straight eyes.
So when Life fades, as the fading sunset
my Spirit may come to you
without shame.

It is a Spiritual experience.
This

“So what gets in the way of our knowing who we really are?
What untethers us from our truly infinite and Spiritual nature?
The long answer to such questions is complex and multi-layered. But since this is a blog post, I’ll go with the short answer.

The number one thing that makes us forget our True nature as Spiritual Beings is thought, or more specifically, our fascination with our thoughts. From the Time we are very young, we devote most of our Life’s energy and attention to our thoughts. And Truth be told, most of them are not that interesting, or helpful.”

How to Inactivate Coronavirus
by Tim Newman
medicalnewstoday.com
click here to read more

Agents, including hydrogen peroxide, ethanol, and sodium hypochlorite (a chemical in bleach), quickly and successfully inactivate coronaviruses.

For instance, the authors write that h]ydrogen peroxide was effective with a concentration of 0.5% and an incubation time of 1 minute.”

After assessing the evidence, the authors conclude:

“Surface disinfection with 0.1% sodium hypochlorite or 62–71% ethanol significantly reduces coronavirus infectivity on surfaces within 1 min[ute] exposure time.”

Conversely, solutions of a biocide called benzalkonium chloride produced conflicting results; and chlorhexidine digluconate, which people use as a topical antiseptic, was ineffective.

The authors write that “[t]ransmission in healthcare settings can be successfully prevented when appropriate measures are consistently performed.” Handwashing, in particular, is critical.

They explain how, in Taiwan, “installing hand wash stations in the emergency department was the only infection control measure which was significantly associated with the protection from healthcare workers from acquiring the [SARS coronavirus].”

Although the studies the authors summarize in this review did not investigate COVID-19, they believe that the results are also likely to be relevant to this latest coronavirus. All the human coronaviruses that the research had investigated seem to be susceptible to the same chemical agents.

Another new study conducted by researchers at the Penn State College of Medicine has found that a common dental item can inactivate human coronaviruses: mouthwash and oral rinses. 

For the study, the results of which were published in the Journal of Medical Virology, researchers tested various oral and nasopharyngeal rinses — which included a 1% solution of baby shampoo, a neti pot, peroxide sore-mouth cleansers, and mouthwashes — to determine how well they inactivated human coronaviruses, namely 229e, a strain that can cause the common cold.  

Human volunteers were not used in the study; the 229e coronaviruses were grown in human liver cells in the lab before being immersed in the various solutions tested as part of the study.

The baby shampoo solution, “which is often used by head and neck doctors to rinse the sinuses,” the researchers noted in a news release regarding the findings, was particularly effective; the solution inactivated “greater than 99.9% of human coronavirus after a two-minute contact time,” they said. 

The mouthwash and oral rinses tested —  which included Listerine Antiseptic, Orajel Antiseptic Rinse, and Crest Pro‐Health, among others — were also efficacious, they found: “Many inactivated greater than 99.9% of virus after only 30 seconds of contact time and some inactivated 99.99% of the virus after 30 seconds.” 

USING MOUTHWASH AFTER EXERCISE HAS THIS BIZARRE EFFECT ON BLOOD PRESSURE, STUDY CLAIMS

More specifically, researchers “used a test to replicate the interaction of the virus in the nasal and oral cavities with the rinses and mouthwashes,” as the nasal and oral cavities are thought to be main points of entry for human coronaviruses, including SARS-CoV-2, better known as COVID-19. Though the researchers didn’t specifically test SARS-CoV-2 in the study, the novel virus is genetically similar to the other human coronaviruses tested, leading the researchers to hypothesize the results could be similar

A strain of human coronavirus was mixed with “baby shampoo solutions, various peroxide antiseptic rinses and various brands of mouthwash,” allowing the solutions to interact with the virus for different amounts of time, including 30 seconds, one minute, and two minutes. The solutions were then diluted to “prevent further virus inactivation,” they wrote

“To measure how much virus was inactivated, the researchers placed the diluted solutions in contact with cultured human cells. They counted how many cells remained alive after a few days of exposure to the viral solution and used that number to calculate the amount of human coronavirus that was inactivated as a result of exposure to the mouthwash or oral rinse that was tested,” per the news release

COVID-19 TRANSMISSION COULD BE PREVENTED BY MOUTHWASH, STUDY SUGGESTS

Lead study author Craig Meyers, a distinguished professor of microbiology and immunology and obstetrics and gynecology, said the results show the amount of virus (viral load) in an infected person’s mouth could be reduced by using these common over-the-counter products, possibly helping to reduce the spread of the novel virus. 

“Methods to reduce transmission are needed,” Meyers said in a statement. “The products we tested are readily available and often already part of people’s daily routines.”

The team’s findings bolster past research that also looked at how oral rinses and mouthwashes may be able to reduce the viral load of human coronaviruses. For instance, a study published in the scientific journal Function also concluded mouthwash could play a role in preventing the transmission of the novel coronavirus

Additionally, a more recent study published in The Journal of Infectious Diseases in August came to a similar conclusion. Meyers said that his findings add to this research, noting his team evaluated the solutions at longer contact times in addition to studying over-the-counter products and nasal rinses that were not evaluated in the other study.

However, Toni Meister of Ruhr University Bochum in Germany, who led the study published in The Journal of Infectious Diseases, warned the findings do not mean mouthwash on its own can treat COVID-19. Indeed: “Gargling with a mouthwash cannot inhibit the production of viruses in the cells,” Meister said at the time, “but could reduce the viral load in the short term where the greatest potential for infection comes from, namely in the oral cavity and throat — and this could be useful in certain situations, such as at the dentist or during the medical care of COVID-19 patients.”

Meyers echoed this sentiment

“People who test positive for COVID-19 and return home to quarantine may possibly transmit the virus to those they live with,” said Meyers. “Certain professions including dentists and other health care workers are at a constant risk of exposure. Clinical trials are needed to determine if these products can reduce the amount of virus COVID-positive patients or those with high-risk occupations may spread while talking, coughing or sneezing. Even if the use of these solutions could reduce transmission by 50%, it would have a major impact.”

the things God has prepared
for those who Love Him”
1 Corinthians 2:9

The Window of Heaven
can open,
when our Sacred Hearts
spread their Wings
and fly out
into this World.

My Dear Friends,
Yesterday is the past,
Tomorrow is the future,
and Today is a Gift,
so we may call it the
present.

Let us not
Live in deep regret about the past,
or worry about Tomorrow.
Live for Today,
 the present of this precious moment,
and without worries or fears,
anxiety or tears.

The longer we stay
in this moment,
the longer we pause
to reflect upon our precious gift
of Time,
and the longer we are aware
of Life.
.

There is nothing to lose
by being in the moment.
We have more choices,
and we can  s t r e t c h  the moment
longer and longer,
until we realize that the real you,
the Spiritual you,

never truly dies.
What is real lives
forever.

“How does a moment last forever?
How does our happiness endure?
Through the darkest of our troubles
Love is beauty,
Love is pure

Love pays no mind to desolation,
It flows like a river through the Soul,
Protects, proceeds, and perseveres
And makes us whole.
Minutes turn to hours,
days to years then gone.

But when all else has been forgotten,
Still our song lives on.
How does a moment last forever:
When our song lives on.”
Tim Rice

The Blessing
of unconditional Love

Light.

“And the Light shineth in darkness;
and the darkness

The Gospel of St. John 1:5
..

Such Love
is the Light
that enters the darkness of our Lives.

It is
the Light from which we came,
and will return.
When we surrender

to the Light of God’s Truth in our own lives,
we are enabled to truly see,
and then be a Beacon of Hope and Healing
in our dark world.

The Love
your share with others,
transcends mere appreciation.
.
We must have God’s Light

in our Hearts,
so that others
may see.

and in Him
is no darkness at all.”

enable us to have
opportunity

to help others

Let us find the words,

to use like brushes
to paint pictures
of Hope,
and Love.
We are each,
in our own way,
gifted,
with the ability

to Bless another precious
and Sacred Life.

We often fail to see
the connection of things in themselves,
how they stand in community
with others.

To your thoughts
I’ll soon be list’ning,
In the road I’ll stop and turn.
Then the wind will set me racing
As my journey nears its end,
and the path I’ll be retracing
When I’m homeward bound again.”

a Life worth Living
by sharing our Love
with others,
what can we do but weep
for Joy?

8 Safety and First Aid Tips for Kids

1

Calling 911

Little girl on phone

As soon as kids can recognize the numbers, they can learn to call 911. It’s important to teach them that 911 is not a toy. Otherwise, you could find yourself talking to a police officer about why Junior was screaming, “My house is on fire!” at the dispatcher. And if the kids are carrying cell phones, they need to know how calling with the cell phone is different than the home phone.

Bleeding Control

Pressure on a bleeding wound is usually enough to stop the flow of blood. Kids can be taught very early to put direct pressure on a cut. You don’t want Jimmy to wrap his shoestrings around his baby sis’s neck, so tell him not to do tourniquets.

3

Stop, Drop, and Roll

Kid rolling on grass

If the kids catch their clothes on fire, they need to put them out immediately. Teach them how to stop, drop, and roll. If outdoors, this is something that works better on grass than it does on concrete. If indoors, it’s better to do this on a hard surface than a carpet, where the risk of setting the home on fire is higher. Have the kids practice, so they’ll do this automatically if they need to.

4

Fire Game Plan

When the smoke alarms start beeping at 3 in the morning, you really must have a plan. It’s not enough that the kids wake up—they have to know where to go. If they have fire escape ladders in their rooms, do they know how to deploy the ladders? Do you plan to meet at the street corner? What if the kids get out at the back of the house and you get out at the front? All of these issues need to be decided in advance.

5

When to Teach Them CPR

Can kids do CPR? The answer to that is different for every child. There’s no question that kids can learn CPR, and there’s no question that in true cardiac arrest, doing nothing is certain death. If you are going to teach the kids CPR, it’s extremely important to stress not practicing on each other. Only practice on mannequins, as pushing on real chests can lead to serious injuries.

6

Water Safety

Keep the life jackets on and make sure the kids don’t swim alone. Teach kids to watch out for rip currents; if stuck in one, they should swim parallel to the shore to get out. Have a pool? If so, there needs to be a fence around it or a safety cover on it.

7

Avoid Dog Bites

Young girls with dog

Fido might know not to bite Junior, but does he know not to bite Sally the neighbor kid? Does Sally’s dog know not to bite your kid? Worse yet, does Junior or Sally know what to do when the dog is a stray wandering through the park? Dogs bite kids – a lot. Dogs bite kids in the summertime even more, probably because the kids are out of school and the dogs are hot and cranky. Teach Junior what to do when dogs approach.

8

Avoid Poisoning

Keep the kids out of the cabinets and keep the household cleaners in. Cabinets with poisonous substances should be up high and latched or locked. When Junior learns to clean the bathroom, stress how important it is not to mix bleach and ammonia. Post the number for Poison Control next to the phone.

In The Garden Of God’s Dream / A Beginner’s Guide to Healthy Eating / Friday: Chandor Gardens / 2018-19 School Calendar

Slung
against the sill
of the window,
the rays of the Sun
have fallen,
kissing goodby
the shadows that run
into the arms
of yesterday,
arms
that wave goodbye,
and
point the way,
to
Tomorrow.

And then,
the dark side
of day
is forced into
labor,
and we give birth
to our Dreams.

Every moment
passes away.
Every moment,
day by day.

But,
with every Prayer
we Pray,
our Heavenly Father
hears us say,
I Love You.
And
this Love
is here to
stay.

My Dear Friend,
there are
no shadows
on the wall,
if your Love
never existed
at all.

Love
defines us.
It refines us.
It is the
Light
within us
all.

As we
wander in this Beautiful Garden
of God’s Dream,
we never fully know
how much
we are
truly Loved.

    The Light within us all..

“There exists
only the present instant …

There is no yesterday nor any tomorrow,
but only Now … “

Meister Eckhart

Is it possible
that we dwell
in only one
dimension,
that everything is
Infinite,
and there is
only one
moment in Time –
that
everything else
is Illusion,
even death?

Our higher-self may exist in a
timeless realm.

Many scientists now believe
that Consciousness
is what makes up the Universe.
Everything seen and unseen, large and small,
are thoughts formed inside
a Cosmic Mind.
And because we are threads
of this Cosmic Consciousness,
WE
create our reality
with our thoughts and Beliefs.

                                We create our reality.

These scientists believe
this is how the Universe works.
We are part of a
Great Cosmic Mind

According to Tania Kotsos
in “You are One with the Universal Mind”:
“Each and every one of us is a manifestation
of this single Universal Consciousness.
There is profound truth in the ancient teaching
that we are all One.
We are all connected – not only to each other
but to all of Nature and to everything in the Universe.
This is the Law of One.
What you do to others, you do to yourself.
The way you treat Nature, you in fact treat yourself.
The separateness you “see” is an illusion.
The true nature of reality is non-dualistic,
meaning that while things may appear distinct,
they are not separate.”

“You are here.”
I’m always here.
I can’t go anywhere but here.
If I think I’ll leave here and go there,
when I get there,
here I am here
again.

“In light of it always being Now
and always being Here,
“Be Here Now”
isn’t just good advice,
it’s the only possibility.
If you want to experience the deepest truth
of things as they really are,
you are going to have to be in harmony
with being here,
now.”
Leigh Brasington

          Everything else is Illusion.

According to presentism,
only the present moment
is real.

“Our subjective sense of time
sits at the center of a perfect storm
of unsolved scientific mysteries:
consciousness, free will, relativity, quantum mechanics,
and the nature of time.”
Dean Buonomano
from: Your Brain Is a Time Machine:
The Neuroscience and Physics of Time

We may be inhabiting a Universe
in which all moments exist.
Einstein’s special theory of relativity
implies the existence
of space-time in which here, there and everywhere
exist alongside
the past, present and future.

This makes for
a case for
Eternalism,
the philosophy adopted from quantum theory
that the past, present, and future
all exist at the same time
and are not linear.

This
brings about deep
Philosophical and Spiritual
implications.

We seek wisdom and knowledge
from both the revelation of Scripture
and the physical world.
Scientific study is a valid way
of coming to an understanding
of God’s work.

The inscription
on the Ancient Greek Temple of Apollo at Delphi
left no room for misunderstanding:
“Know Thyself
and thou shalt know all the mysteries
of the gods and the Universe”.

Robert Lanza, M.D, scientist, theoretician
and author of “Biocentrism”
– How Life and Consciousness are the Keys
to Understanding the True Nature of the Universe

thinks there are many reasons why we won’t die –
that death is just
an illusion.

Everything
you see and experience right now
is a whirlwind of information
occurring in your mind.
Space and time are simply the tools
of putting things together.

Lanza points out that death
does not exist
in a timeless, spaceless World.

There is no distinction between
past, present, and future.
It is only a stubbornly persistent
Illusion.

Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep

By Mary Elizabeth Frye
“Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there;
I did not die.”

Immortality doesn’t mean
a perpetual existence
in Time without end,
but rather resides
outside of time
altogether.

Albert Einstein once famously said:
” Reality is merely an
Illusion
,

although a very persistent one.”

Dear Friends,
Science
and Religion
are rapidly merging
and becoming
ONE!

They are both searching
for the same things,
and coming
to the same
conclusions.

“Conscious breathing of the Universe
creates a Symphony,
where we receive Life like a Gift
and release it
like a Present.”
André-Pascal Aappino

I find the study of this World
that we live in
to be enlightening, fascinating and interesting.
But more importantly,
the more I discover,
the more it solidifies my Faith in
God.

Faith is at the root of
Science and Religion.
They are not as separate
as you might think.
They both minister towards Mankind’s
craving for
Truth.

Yes,
Science explains much
of the natural World around us.
But,
Religion delves much, much deeper.
It explains the purpose and meaning
behind the natural World
and our existence in it.

I Love the way
a fourteen year old
explains:

“Science and Religion
are one in the same.
The only difference is in the way
they describe their theories.
Which contain similarities so similar
that you would believe they are one in the same.
Science clearly states
that everything was created by
and is energy.
Religion says God created
and is a part of everything.
Ask yourself what properties does energy have?
Well energy is infinite,
it can’t be created or destroyed,
always has and always will be.
God can be described similarly,
so similar in fact
that they could be called co-existing
or one in the same as depicted above.
By the way I am 14.”

WoW!

“My sheep hear My Voice,
and I know them,
and they follow me:
And I give unto them
Eternal Life;
and they shall never perish.”
John 10: 27-28

As your Heart
whispers in the wind,
about all the sorrow
and all the pain,
reflect upon
the Love that dwells
within.
For we are in
God’s Dream,
and He will
make His Love
real.

Not only is
God real,
YOU are real,
and He is in
You,
O Child of God.

Ask,
and He will be
with you,
now
and forever more.

Goodnight.

“May it be the shadows call
Will fly away.
May it be you journey on
To light the Day.
When the night is overcome,
You may rise to find the Sun.”
Ni Bhraonain Eith, Ryan Roma Shane

A Beginner’s Guide to Healthy Eating

The Nerd Fitness Diet Philosophy
read more

If I had to break down the Nerd Fitness Diet into a single sentence, it would go something like this:

“You’re smart and you know what real food is,
so stop eating crap.

You know what real food is: things that grew in the ground, on a tree, came out of the sea, ran on the land, or flew through the air.  Meat, fish, eggs, vegetables, fruits, nuts are all great examples of REAL food.

On top of that, you know what crap food is: food that comes from a drive-thru window, a vending machine, box, bag, or wrapper.  If it has an ingredient list longer than A Game of Thrones, it’s probably not good for you.  If it started out as real food and then went through fourteen steps to get to the point where you’re about to eat it, it’s probably not good for you.

Use this information and combine it with this mantra: “you can’t outrun your fork“.  When trying to lose weight, feel healthy, and get in shape, 80% (not an exaggeration) of your success or failure will come from how well you eat – which is why this point is one of the cornerstones of the Rebellion.

Mental Preparation

Eat more real food, you must.  Eat less junk food, you will.

I realize this concept is nothing new or revolutionary, but up until now the ability to actually DO IT has eluded you for some reason – your heart wasn’t in it, you got sick, went on vacation, got bored, or just decided that you couldn’t live without certain foods (SPOILER ALERT: you can).

I am NOT a fan of “diets”, detoxes, juice cleanses, or crash-fads that result in vast fluctuations in your body weight and health.  These are the useless solutions that are sold to you in pill form, in MIRACLE DIET INFORMATION ads online, and in super expensive health food stores.

You are smarter than that.

Want to know what I am a fan of?  Small changes that produce big results, like my boy Optimus Prime.

You need to determine for yourself how likely you are to succeed depending on how many changes at once you can deal with:  Some people can radically adjust everything they eat overnight and have no adverse effects. Other people wouldn’t dream of giving up certain foods and the second they go more than a few days without it they become Crankenstein.

That choice is yours.  You need to determine:

  • How averse are you to change?
  • How much weight you think you need to lose?
  • How quickly you need to lose that weight? (wedding? honeymoon? vacation?)
  • How likely are you to stick with your changes?

Like playing a video game, you need to determine what level of difficulty you’re up for.  Sure playing on Difficult gives you less room for error, but it also hones your skills far more quickly and produces more impressive results.  Or maybe you’re cool with playing on easy, because you don’t have to be as neurotic and can have more fun with it.

Long story short: decide what method works best for you based on how radical of a change you’re chasing.  Just don’t overdo it – small permanent successes will beat out massively ambitious failures 100 times out of 100.

This is the reason behind our 10-level nutritional system that we follow here at NF! Each level gets a bit more challenging and healthier, but you can progress at your own speed to make your changes stick!

Committing to change

If you are just eating better because somebody told you to or because you think you should (but don’t really have a real reason)…every day that you deprive yourself of your favorite foods will seem like torture – you’re going to fail miserably.

Instead, look at the changes you’re making to your diet as small steps on the path to a leveled up live.

You’re not depriving yourself of junk food because you want to suffer, but rather because you want a better life, a happier existence, and/or because you want to set a good example for your children.

As self-help guru Tony Robbins once said (I think it was him anyways): “nothing tastes as good as looking good feels.” 

It’s time to give up that instant gratification you get from eating a donut, a bag of chips, or six slices of pizza.

You are not a slave to your taste buds.

As we’ve learned from the Matrix, you DO have a choice – stop letting the food companies, who have all designed these crappy foods for maximum addictiveness, hold you hostage.

Free your mind, free your taste buds.

I can’t believe I just typed that.

Wait, yes I can. I’m a huge dork.

We’re not looking for instant gratification.  We’re looking for a long life full of epic winning.

Eating for dummies

Okay! You’re finally ready to start making some changes, but you’re not quite sure what you’re going to change or how you’re going to change it.

Hopefully you passed basic math back in the day; if you didn’t and you made it this far in life…I’m not even mad, I’m impressed.  Anyhoo, remember this basic equation:

  • One pound of fat = 3500 calories

If we do some complex synergistic rocket geometric algebra here, we can determine that 3500/7 = 500.

That means that if you are interested in losing ONE pound per week, you need to be eating 500 less calories per day (or burning 500 calories more per day).

Optimally, your 500 calorie deficit per day would come from a combination of increased exercise and decreased calorie intake, but lets just say for today that you’re going to focus on eating 500 less calories per day.

“But Steve, how do I do that?”

Great question, thank you so much for asking!

I HIGHLY recommend you spend the next three to four days tracking your calorie intake.

And when I say track them, I mean track EVERY FREAKING THING YOU EAT.  Yeah, those handful of M&M’s you stole off of Milton’s desk at work count.  So does that half can of coke you found in your back seat cupholder from last June.  So does the handful of french fries you stole from Paul while he was in the bathroom at MacDonald’s.

Every.

Single.

Calorie.

But counting calories is boring, right? And who has time to calculate all of that? Right?  Luckily, there’s this thing called the Internet – sign up for a calorie tracking site and start tracking!

Now, once you have a few days under your belt, take a look back and determine an average for what you’ve been eating and how many total calories you’ve been eating daily.

To lose a pound a week, knock 500 calories out of that diet per day.  If you want to lose half a pound a week, knock 250 calories out of your diet per day.

It might mean one less snack, ordering a smaller lunch, or cutting back on soda (liquid calories are BRUTAL). Note, if you track calories for a few days and you don’t lose weight, you’re probably underestimating or under reporting how you much food you eat.

Your body DOES obey the laws of thermodynamics (energy in, energy out), and your metabolism isn’t slow! You’re simply eating too much. I promise! Take 3 minutes to watch this if you’re convinced your metabolism doesn’t operate like normal:

A quick note: if you are used to eating 4,000 calories a day, switching to 2,000 per day will probably make you want to gnaw your arm off – instead, slowly decrease your calorie intake by a few hundred calories each week.

Think of your stomach like a muscle that needs to be trained – it needs to learn that it can function and operate on way less food than you’ve been giving it.

This is the most easy-to-understand method of weight loss – you still eat all of the same foods, you just have to adjust how much you are eating of those same foods.

Unfortunately, this method also produces the least optimal healthy results in my opinion and is the easiest to abandon (eating only HALF of something deliciously unhealthy is tougher than not eating it at all, in my opinion!) but it’s a great place for a newbie to start taking control of his/her eating.

Quality of Calories

Once you’ve learned how many calories you’re consuming, you might start to see a few pounds disappear, but it’s just a step in the right direction.  Hopefully this won’t come as a shock to you, but 2000 calories worth of gingerbread cookies doesn’t fuel your body the same way 2,000 calories of meat, vegetables, and fruit would.

Not all calories are created equal!

Your body digests certain types of nutrients differently, using them for all sorts of bodily functions: building muscle, transporting nutrients, fueling various organs or muscles, or storing energy as fat for later use.  Let’s take a look at how to compose a basic meal:

Protein: When you exercise, your muscles are broken down and then use protein to rebuild themselves stronger while recovering. Protein absolutely NEEDS to be a main component of every meal.  Aim for one gram per pound (two grams per KG) of lean body weight, or just do one gram per pound of body weight if you don’t want to do the math – with an upper limit of 200 grams.  Sources of protein include chicken, eggs, beef, pork, fish, nuts, legumes, quinoa, and most dairy products.

Carbohydrates: When you eat carbohydrates, they get converted to glucose (sugar) in your system, which is then used to provide energy for all sorts of body functions to take place.  Vegetables and/or fresh fruit are quality sources of carbohydrates, with grains being less so in my opinion…but we’ll get to more grains later. There are certainly bad carbohydrates (processed carbs, refined grains, and more), and those are the ones we want to avoid.  Unless you’re a marathon runner, you can function with WAY less carbs than you’re probably consuming now.

Fat:  Fat is easily the most misunderstood macro-nutrient in your diet; long story short: fat is absolutely critical to your body and should make up a BIG portion of your daily calories.  Things like avocados, almonds, olive oil, walnuts, and almond butter are great sources of healthy fat (polyunsaturatured and monounsaturated).  If you take this stance on saturated fat (personally, I do), then full fat milk, coconut milk, and fatty cuts of meat will provide you with sources of saturated fat.

The first thing I want to make sure you know is that the fat in your food is not what made you fat. It wasn’t until the past 40-50 years that poor fat was suddenly vilified (after a few scientific leaps of faith with no real evidence to back it up), which is why every “healthy” food these days is “low fat” or “fat free!”

Not surprisingly, our country is fatter and more unhealthy than ever, and yet people still avoid fat at all costs and consume more “healthy whole grains!” (ugh).

So what IS making us fat? Simple, refined, and/or processed carbohydrates! Rather than spend thirty minutes typing it out, I’d recommend instead that you spend three  minutes to watch this video to show WHY excessive carbohydrate consumption can make you fat:

For more in-depth reading on this subject, I highly recommend checking out Why We Got Fat by Gary Taubes, also the author of “What if it’s All Been a Big Fat Lie,” an must-read article that blew the doors off my thoughts on healthy back when I started my education.

So, if you’re looking to kick start your weight loss journey with healthy eating, start by swapping out processed refined carbohydrates for more natural foods.

Depending on your level of commitment and your ability to handle change, you might be better off making one small change every other week rather than a whole bunch of changes simultaneously.

This is a HUGE part of our 1-on-1 Coaching Program – working closely with each person to see what their lives are like and guiding them to make slow changes to their diet so they actually stick! 

Combine this with accountability, check-ins, and a workout program, and we’ve seen some pretty amazing results (like with Leslie here, a single mom who works super long hours that lost 100 lbs with our coaching).

Walking Your Uneasy Mind / Cancer Dangers of Exposure to Light at Night / ATEX Trash Service

                 Why would you want for more?

If the skies above
ever
echo darkly,
while walking your uneasy mind
toward the Sun
that shines at times,
be aware,
your feet know
where they want you
to go.

The Light of the Sun
is headed your way
and very, very fast,
just over the Horizon
of a new Today
and so many days
past,
but not as fast
as the Love
of your Father
in Heaven Above.
He
is already here.

“Do you not know
that YOU
are a Temple of God

and that the Spirit of God dwells
in you?”
1 Corinthians 3:16

                                          Echo darkly

With your Love of Life
on fire,
you will never, ever
tire
of the things God
has in Mind
for you to do.
Yes.
The future comes
running.
Just close you eyes
and soon you will be
there.
.
For there will never cease to be
poor in the land.
Therefore I command you,
‘You shall open wide your hand
to your brother, to the needy and to the poor,
in your land.’ “

Deuteronomy 15:11

The pathway forward,
down a road
to ever last,
is never slow,
never fast.

It stops,
while you help
another,
to be better off
than you are.

You move forward
through the precious Life
of someone
other
than you.

“But if anyone has the world’s goods
and sees his brother in need,
yet closes his Heart against him,
how does God’s Love
abide in him?

– 1 John 3:17

If everywhere you went,
you have been there
before,
then its time
to say
goodnight,
and close your eyes
and open your Heart,
to the Dawn’s new
Light,
to act in a new part,
never written
before.

YOU
have ALL the riches
a man or woman can claim,
but you
have not claimed them.
If
you have enough to share,
enough to show
you truly care,
answered in Prayer,
why would you want
for more?

Jesus
spoke more about giving
than He did Heaven or hell
combined.

“And as for fortune and as for fame,
I never invited them in,
though it seemed to the world
they were all I desired.
They are illusions
they are not the solutions
they promised to be.
The answer
was here all the time,

I Love you
and hope you
Love me
.”
Tim Rice

Beg
borrow or steal
your share of Love,
Life and Laughter.
For you cannot
take,
what God has bequeathed
in His desire for you,
what you already own.

“He will yet fill your mouth
with LAUGHTER

and your lips
with shouts of JOY.”

Job 8:21

      You cannot take what you already own.

Dangers of Exposure
to Light at Night

Sleeping while exposed to light at night
causes a dramatic drop in blood melatonin levels,
setting the stage for growth and proliferation
of breast cancer cells.
The increased breast cancer risk
in female night shift workers
has been postulated to result from
the suppression of pineal melatonin production by
exposure to LIGHT at night.

Tumor growth response to exposure to light
during darkness
is intensity dependent and the Human nocturnal,
circadian melatonin signal
inhibits human breast cancer growth.
This effect is extinguished
by short-term ocular exposure to bright,
white light at night.

An interesting study in Cancer Research
(read more)
provides new information that
might partly explain why this is.

This study provides evidence
that may partly explain why breast cancer
is five times more common (500 %)
in industrialized nations
compared to less developed countries.
It may also explain why visually challenged people
have lower rates of cancer than people
who have no problems with vision.

So my Dear Friends,
don’t be in the dark
about this.
Well, actually,
you do need to be
in the DARK!

You know what I mean.

Let us prevent
needless suffering.
There are so many things
YOU can do,
and to live in deep regret,
need not be one of them.
Spend a few moments
in thoughtful research and study.
And then do
the common sense things.

Goodnight.

               Why would you want for more?

“NO
truth is ever a lie.
Life

is a moment
in space.
In Love
there is NO
measure of time.”
