A teacher in New York was teaching her class about bullying and gave them the following exercise to perform. She had the children take a piece of paper and told them to crumple it up, stomp on it and really mess it up but do not rip it. Then she had them unfold the paper, smooth it out and look at how scarred and dirty is was. She then told them to tell it they’re sorry. Now even though they said ...they were sorry and tried to fix the paper, she pointed out all the scars they left behind. And that those scars will never go away no matter how hard they tried to fix it. That is what happens when a child bully’s another child, they may say they’re sorry but the scars are there forever. The looks on the faces of the children in the classroom told her the message hit home. Pass it on.
-Processed foods are an illusion, often appearing to be healthy (with claims like low fat, low carb, vitamin fortified, no trans fat, contains omega-3s, etc.) when these foods are in fact the very thing making a lot of Americans unhealthy, sick, and fat.
So, my routine is fairly flexible and laid back because that’s how I roll. I don’t eat a bunch of food. I avoid sweets and snacking unless it’s yogurt or fruit or I drink water instead. I cook dinner and avoid going out. I am now going to hit the elliptical twice a day for five days out of the week and the last day I’ll do it once. I may walk on the seventh day if I’m feeling really “hardcore.” I want this weight gone in the next three or four months. I am already seeing results so thats encouraging. I also to ab exercises and I stretch a lot. Some yoga moves are incorporated as well. I have also used weights. I think the combo is best. I mainly drink water, tea, and occasionally V8. It can be difficult sometimes trying to keep up with proper eating habits because Hubby needs to gain weight while I’m trying to lose, but seeing his rockin bod inspires me even more! Lol. Ok. I’m done.
Worked out twice today, go me! Lol. I plan to make that a routine. Hubby instructed me to do so. I work out at least 6 days a week. I was kinda lagging before but that’s done. No more overeating or eating garbage unless it’s a very special occasion. I can’t stand being this chunky anymore but transforming your body takes so long. Gotta put in work, though!
So, my scalp is pretty itchy and I have some white stuff on it. Gonna exfoliate it using sea salt, oils, and conditioner and see how that goes. After that I shall do a hot oil treatment, followed by shampooing, then a deep conditioning using bentonite clay. Tomorrow is gonna be fun!
I felt like “being fancy” so the title is in Spanish. I was at my client’s place today and I realized, as she was talking on the phone to her friends, I don’t really have the same friendships that I used to. Any close friends the I have are in Cali and the people out here…eh, well, that’s not really happening. I don’t seem to have much of a connection with anyone here and the only time people want to do anything is if they see me at church. It’s the situation of only having a relationship with a person if you see them at church. It’s not cool in my opinion. You don’t get very many points for inviting me to go somewhere when you see me at church. If you have my number and give me a call, THEN I know you care, otherwise I assume it’s just as a formality. I’m not big on formalities, but anywayz……PEACE <3
