I do best when "blogging" daily
 What I mean is, it focuses me first thing in the morning and helps set the tone for the day.

so, here is today's blog:

I'm Italian and I LOVE BREAD!  Pasta, Pizza, Cannoli's!  Yes, ALL CARB DIET!

So so Sad because that will put on the weight quicker than slapping Lard on my Butt.

John 6:35

  Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. 
Whoever comes to me will never go hungry,
 and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty

It has been resonating in my head!  
You'll make wiser choices and have 
self control when choosing what and when to eat!

There is another scripture that says"

Matthew 26:40-42

Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: 
the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

God Knows that we "war against ourself"

The best weapon to defeat moments your tempted to shoval a piece of candy that you're co-worker has at work is to SPEAK POWER

Say it outloud!
                                    Ye are of God, little children,
and have overcome them
"because greater is he that is in you, ( say ME)
he that is in the world."

So, Suite up for the day by Feeding the SPIRIT 

before feeding the Face and 

"He guarantee's  "You will be successful and On the Road to "health and wellness!"

Gotta Run (literally)

Take on the FIGHT!

"I have a Cold"

"I am having anxiety"

"I am so depressed"

These are statements make me Shake my head and then shout out....  STOP IT!

Why oh why are you taking OWNERSHIP of these aliments?  W h y?

You may not think so, 
but I'm going to tell you that 
YOUR WORDS have power over you

When your  use your Voice to speak out ..... Your Ears hear what your saying and send a message  back to your Brain to reinforce  to your body what you just spoke

It goes something like this...

"hey Brain are you hearing what I am hearing?  We're Sick !"  

Then the Brain goes into  its act mode and begins sending signal's to the rest of the body to ACCEPT and rent out space in your body for your aliment or illness!

Ahhh, you don't believe me, do you?

I'm not going to site the research in this blog that I have read, but it's true.

The Power of the spoken word exist.

ok, then tell me this... do you believe this happens?

Your sitting on a park bench relaxed in the sunshine enjoying the day.

Then out of the corner of your eye you SEE a Snake... slithering towards you.
For those who are "normal" and hate snakes...
what happens to your body PHYSICALLY?

You begin sweating
Your  heart races
Your eye's dilate....
You being to breath  rapid!

Because  of YOUR mind....
        YOUR MIND tells your body  you are afraid of the danger of the snake.

Nothing touched your body!  Yet your body reacted to what your mind says your afraid of....

My point is that we use about 1/10th of our brain power!  

Try to expand and use the FULL 10th and think about this...

The connection between our Mind and our Body is tightly woven in the womb.  It is a symbiotic relationship that most people do not respect nor tap into.

I'm telling you..... 

When you SAY you own something... 
your body ACCEPTS it and acts on it.

So, DO NOT TAKE OWNERSHIP of illness, symptoms or fears!

Here is what you do say:

I AM FIGHTING a headache
I AM FIGHTING Irritable Bowel Syndrome
I AM FIGHTING depression

This is you TELLING YOUR BODY....
 that you are a child of the 
and you DO NOT accept 
what comes against you.

In Fact, I was inspired tonight by one of my daughters with this idea...

To Name  the things that come against us so we can visualize Fighting them!

Anxiety's name will be: Agnes

Depression's name will be: Doris

Fear's names will be: Freda 

(my apologies if  these names belong to you or  someone you know)
*Note:  They name Hurricanes, right?

So when you're feeling anxious....

Say out loud.... "I'm fighting Agnes! "  

SEE YOURSELF in your mind 

         punching out Agnes and firmly stating.... 

"I know who you are and I'll knock you out if you try to take hold of me! I am a *child of the most powerful GOD of the universe and My Body his the living temple of His Son and in the Name of Jesus.... Get out of my way"

(*of course, this is true  only said if you have accepted Jesus into your heart as your Savior, otherwise.... sorry, but without Christ you have to fight it on your own, in your own power and.... who then get's the glory?)

Ya, I know..... I'm a little nutty sometimes. But, why not.... God made us delightful creative beings.... let it go and be a little nutty sometimes.

But, what I have said is a truth that I not only believe but have witnessed.  

There are people who embrace illness and aliments.  Sad, but true.  They do it for attention or they may do it because they live in Fear and it's all they know.  

Their illness becomes their companion  
They nurse it, feed it... and hold on to it.

  Sad but true they find a sick kind of comfort in being ill all the time.
Always telling people about their most recent aches and pains.

This is the truth: I have had patients  tell me when asked if they have a headache  respond "not yet"

No matter HOW you FEEL.... NO matter what you have been told or diagnosed
YOU do NOT take ownership of "it".  You tell "it" you belong to God and your body is God's Temple and it will never be welcome in you! 

No matter what is happening to you... Speak the Words of Faith, Healing and Deliverance. Confess out loud Your Faith

God made us in his Image
 but it is
Your Choice to Live like a Creation of a Loving God.

Until we get to heaven, we may face .......Agnes, Doris and Freda... 
or other  illness's and ailments.  

BUT, we can C H O S E to
with the Power of the Written Word of GOD.

1 John 4:4

You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them
because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.

OK, that's it
I'm done
No more
Bye Bye

10 days Ten Pounds

DAY ONE (21 DAY thing a ma bob)

No, I'm not attempting to say "loose 10 pounds in 10 days"   BUT.....

I have 10 things to do to "get ON TRACK" with Health.  So, for the first 10 days of the 21 DAY change my habits I will hit each day each of the ten things to do.
Ya know.... KISS (Keep it simple Stupid)


1.  Drinking

Drink Water

Think about the fact we were for 9 months in an amazing life giving fluid - Fluid that ran within us and around us.


Think about these facts:
Arthur Guyton 's Textbook of Medical Physiology states that "the total amount of water in a man of average weight (70 kilograms or 154lbs) is approximately 40 litres, averaging 60 percent of his total body weight.  Obesity decreases the percentage of water in the body, sometimes to as low as 45 percent".  

Skin that is dehydrated often looks sallow, worn, dry, and wrinkled. In order to keep skin’s collagen intact, you must make sure that you consume enough water. Many people try time and again to find the latest anti-aging trick. The truth is that water is one of the most important things you can do to maintain your skin’s collagen.

      How much water should you drink? One half of your body weight in ounces should be consumed every day. If you weight 200 pounds, you should drink 100 ounces of water (3.13 quarts, 2.98 litres or about 10-12 cups of water a day). If you weigh closer to 100 pounds you will need only about 50 ounces of water or about four 12-ounce glasses daily.

The best way to consume this much water is to make a pitcher of water in the morning.  Know that by the end of the day it needs to be gone.

I love to have a pitcher of water that has added lemon wedges or orange slices and strawberries.  
I really like this Water  recipe  IT is SOOOO Healthy too!
    1/2 Cucumber
    1 knuckle Ginger
    1/2 cup mint leaves or 2 mint tea bags steeped
    1 lemon juiced
    1 gallon water


Peel ginger & cucumber, Puree all ingredients together in food processor mix with water let it sit overnight in frig, strain into another container or water bottles and enjoy ice cold - be sure to refrig unused portions for up to 2 days

Number of Servings: 16


DRINK  GREEN TEA  (Organic Tea of course!)
The thermogenic benefits that the study cites are relatively small, Zelman says. "If you're consuming 1,500 calories, you'll be burning 60 calories, less than [what's in] a cookie. Of course, every little bit counts, but that's really a drop in the bucket."
"Green tea is emerging as a healthful drink ... more because of its role as an antioxidant," Zelman tells WebMD. Antioxidants help to prevent the formation of free radicals that cause many diseases, such as cancer. "Tea flavonoids appear to be very potent antioxidants. A significant body of research has shown that diets rich in flavonoids found in tea, fruits, and vegetables are associated with decreased risk of chronic disease and cancer, heart disease, and stroke."
Tea also contains less caffeine (as low as 50 mg per cup), while coffee has 150-200 mg per cup.
"All that -- in addition to the fact that tea could boost your metabolism -. "You're talking to a coffee drinker here. I love coffee. 
But the healthful benefits ... they're speculative at best. 

Drink a cup of tea ... you'll actually be doing something good for yourself."

  • Drinking tea can still be healthy because it contains flavonoids, which are powerful antioxidants that can help protect against cancer, heart disease, and stroke.
 Thirst occurs when your body needs water. When you do not drink enough water, your body receives mixed signals on hunger. Dehydration causes you to believe you need to eat when you really need liquid intake. Sometimes you eat food out of boredom. Keeping track of what you drink and eat will help stop overeating. It will also clue in to how much you drink a day, and what your liquid needs are.

Matthew 5:6
"Blessed are those who
 hunger and thirst for righteousness, 
for they shall be satisfied.
As I keep harping.... F E E D  your SPIRIT before you feed your FACE 

When you get that.... then your REALLY LIVING!

lose 10 pounds

What the flip-pen sugar doodle!   (my nice way of expletives)

I have 10 stupid dumb "Super Glue like" pounds to lose and it's ridiculous why I haven't Lost it yet!

What is my recipe for success?  
What ever it is, 
I guess I'm not following it.

Well, I am making a 21 day Commitment and by gosh by golly I'm going to get it DONE!
No more kidding around.

Studies show that it takes 21 day's to form a HABIT!
10 pounds and 10 Steps to LOSE IT!

  DAY ONE:  Get a Plan

TEN things to do to Loose TEN POUNDS....

1. Drink (ha ha... I know what you're thinking... )
W A T E R 
if half of my weight in ounces  is how much water I NEED to maintains my body
than add 25% more to cleanse and detox during weight loss.
I will need 13.5 glasses (8oz) of water a day

Drink Organic GREEN TEA  drink not less than five cups of a drink. Click here for the link to this information

2. Eat Organic  HIGH FIBROUS  foods
 If you consume 1600 calories, eat 22 grams of fiber per day. Click here for the link to this information

Low Carb!!!!   NO WHITE FOODS (potatoes, sugars, flours)

3.   EAT  SIX small Meals a day:   
200 calories at each Meal! = 1200
What stinks is if I am inactive I can only have 1600 calories a day  JUST to maintain my weight!  If moderately active I can have 1800 calories a day.  NO KIDDING why I slowly gained the menopausal weight!Click here for web site that has this information

4.  NO eating after 6 pm!!! Click here for an article on not eating after 6 pm unless your training to be a SUMO Wrestler

5. Eat less Carbs a day (for my body type)
Click here for information on Carbs in the diet

THE NEXT 5 things are A L L about 
Balance for weight loss

If I'm really really serious and committed to weight loss than move my FAT ASS
30 minutes - 45 minutes  EVERY STINKIN' DAY!   LINK is HERE
God didn't create us to drive in a car, sit in a seat and drive up to a window for Food

7.   Replace EXCUSES  with Exercise:
STOP using excuses!!!! Do you use the excuse: I have a  slow metabolism!
LINK here read about dumb "Excuses" and CLICK here too!

8. THINK what you want to be by CONFESSING POSITIVE words of encouragement
You are your best, best friend.  Talk to yourself, coach yourself.  YOUR WORDS ARE POWERFUL.  Even if you don't "feel" like exercising... say "I LOVE TO EXERCISE"
after a while your body and feelings will believe what your SAYING.
If if you Love love love Ice Cream... SAY "I don't like it because it's bad for me, therefore I don't need or want it".   When you look at it say "Ohhhh, that is poison for my body... "I don't want, I don't need it.... It's no good for me".... chant this every time you see rich, sugar laden, fat infused pastries, cookies, cakes, desserts!

9.  Change Attitude & R E S P E C T yourself.  Ok, so your body is a reflection of
your choices.  When your FAT (just hitting below the belt) it's a symptom of an unbalanced life.  POOR choices that are a result of NOT RESPECTING your body is (should be) the temple of a LIVING GOD!  For heaven sakes... S T O P punishing yourself. If you over eat or eat Non-nutritious high calorie, high fat foods  than you're no different than someone who picks up a CANCER STICK and smokes it!
there.... I said it  (preaching to the preacher)

Weight problems are (I believe a spiritual battle!)
Yes, number 10 .... DRaW Strength from the one who created you.
SPEND TIME when Exercising to Talk, Pray, Cry... Petition.... LISTEN to the One who loves you so much he sent his ONLY begotten SON to D I E for Your Sins....
so you could have POWER over SIN.    And baby.... Gluttony is a SIN!  look it up in the bible  CLICK here for what I'm saying SEVEN Deadly Sins that will destroy your life

For the Next 10 days I will write about each of the 10 steps.  (this is my homework)
Oh by the way..... did you know that BLogging is my Journal..... LOVE IT!

to your health and wellness

I gotta run   
YES I mean really run... walk fast, jog, BReATHE, Pray and Pull it together
