"If You Can't Eat It, Don't Put in On Your Skin"
Tuesday, April 18, 2017      13 comments

This was the advice from a health expert I heard on the radio the other day. He was talking about how most people don't realize that the skin is the body's largest organ. And that everything you put on it (and most are full of chemicals) go di... Read more

Monday, April 17, 2017      8 comments

Wow! I never knew this much about my gut! What a film! We have an entire ecosystem within our bodies. More bacteria than stars in the universe. 95 percent of our serotonin is in the gut. I have new-found respect for this part of my body. ... Read more

That Sugar Film (documentary)
Saturday, April 15, 2017      6 comments

This should be mandatory viewing in schools. I wish I'd seen this in high school; my food choices would have been remarkably different. This Australian guy was sugar-free for three years, and decided to do this experiment on film for 60 da... Read more
My Big Fat Body (documentary)
Friday, April 14, 2017      9 comments

This film was about the comedian Frank Payne who volunteered to visit a variety of scientific places to have his obese body analyzed. It showed how his body was biologically affected by fat. I think this was filmed in 2009 and he was about... Read more
Facing the Fat (documentary)
Thursday, April 13, 2017      9 comments

This is an amateur film done in 2010 by a 32- year- old male who wanted to lose weight by drinking only water for 40 days. Not a very good film, but I always find it interesting what we humans do out of desperation. Of course, weight loss was... Read more

Tuesday, April 11, 2017      9 comments

I know that aspirin has been said to be helpful in preventing heart attacks, but yesterday's news claimed that daily intake prolonged lifespan in a study that was done. And decreases the risk of cancer. I'm always suspicious of studies bec... Read more
Birthday Balloons for My Cat's Birthday
Monday, April 10, 2017      9 comments

I can't believe my little Prince Harry will be 13 in a week. I celebrate all month long. (smiling) While many tell me that their cat lived to much longer lives, I'm amazed he has lasted this long. Both he and his darling brother, William (wh... Read more
Going To Try Yoga Again. And go Back to Qi Gong Next Week.
Wednesday, April 05, 2017      12 comments

I have been saying that I just don't like yoga. Well, I'm going to give it another chance or two before I cross it off my list. Honestly, I was pretty discouraged by my exhaustion from Monday's Qi Gong because I thought it was supposed to ... Read more
I AWOKE WITH THE STRONGEST DONUT JONES OF MY LIFE THIS MORNING
Tuesday, April 04, 2017      15 comments

First of all, I am not even a donut person; so this makes no sense at all. Didn't dream of donuts either. This morning at 5, I went to get gas. I love doing errands very early when everyone else is asleep. I've always liked the quiet of ... Read more
Going Back to Qi Gong Again
Monday, April 03, 2017      9 comments

I tried a couple of classes awhile ago, and then couldn't find them anymore. Just noticed they are back on the schedule and am heading out later this morning. I've tried Tai Chi and Yoga, but really don't connect with those activities. So I'l... Read more
Easier for Me to Do Less Sugar Than Less Cheese!
Sunday, April 02, 2017      15 comments

A couple of weeks ago, I started to get serious about my sugar and cheese intake. Since then, I've done great with sugar, but it's been a struggle with cheese. Yes, I'm addicted and have been known to eat way too much cheese. But even though ... Read more

"Don't Do Your Worrying in Bed"
Wednesday, March 29, 2017      11 comments

I heard a radio show with a shrink saying that worrying is on the rise. (how does one measure that?) And what indicates when chronic worrying becomes problematic and interfering with quality of life. She said that many worriers bring t... Read more
