FALSE: OMG! It's is an Epidemic!

"Here's the thing, folks- Our bodies were designed to maintain and repair itself.  In order to do so, you must give it what it needs to function- not just 'oh I ate healthy today' because really you did nothing for yourself, you must refuel your body with what it takes to run as it uses it."

Cancer is going to kill us all...RUN!!!
 People respond to disease in this manner "(insert ailment here) attacked and is killing"... "OMG  (insert ailment here)  is an epidemic."  Cancer is a personified villain roaming the streets taking out the good people.

Cancers, Diabetes, will never be curable.  Pills are great in masking pain, but the truth is, research is just a money making industry.

You must decide here and now your destiny.  This is up to you and you alone.  Natural Selection is already at work and he may have your number on his "next to be called list."

I sit among my fellow humans and observe the behavior and this is what I can report- They don't eat for shit; the live on fast food, pizza, cheeseburgers, french fries and chicken nuggets.  They make fun of brussel sprouts and garlic and free time is vegging out on chips and Oreo's on the couch, while loading up on Red Bull or Budweiser then top it off by smoking cigarettes saying "smoking don't really hurt people."

If this you, Natural Selection has your number and don't be so alarmed when your doctor wants to give you synthetic chemicals to slow the process.

Food, The right food, is a life saver.  But you must act now.

Each of us sat in Health classes.  Each of us learned about the food groups.  Each of us learned there are nutrients in certain foods that are good for us.  Sadly, what we learned in grade school is this- Calcium builds strong bones and you get it from Milk.  Carrots are good for your eyes but mama only puts them in stew.  Greens keep your back straight.  That's probably the extent of it.  Then we looked at a food chart that was in the shape of a triangle (below):

This food chart is directing you BUILD up.  Breads and grains should be the foundation of every meal. Next, add your fruits and veggies then build up accordingly.  The problem with the picture is that it has been viewed by mostly stupid ignorant people and this is how the triangle is interpreted- Fats and sugars are on top of the totem poll, breads and grains are at the bottom.  Don't believe me?  Look at the average dinner plate...........

Here's the thing, folks- Our bodies were designed to maintain and repair itself.  In order to do so, you must give it what it needs to function- not just 'oh I ate healthy today' because really you did nothing for yourself, you must refuel your body with what it takes to run as it uses it.

Being overweight is a symptom, not a condition.  An overweight body is saying "I cannot handle what you are doing to me."  Guys, cut it out- you're giving your body something (or more than enough of somethings) that it cannot pass.  

The system works this way- food goes in mouth, digestion begins.  Digestion is your body coming and looking at what you just gave it, it tears it to pieces like scavengers and taking away valuable finds (hint, nutrients).  After this process, the remains get trashed.  You aim to speed up this process (high metabolism) because the quicker the waste gets out of there, the less time you have for infection setting in the intestines from aging bacteria.  YUCK!  So for this reason, add fiber to your meals.  Fiber makes the waste heavy and it'll pass much faster than when lighter (imagine big kid on water slide versus the little skinny kid).  Promise- Google it :)

Here are some great links that can kick off your education.

First, you should know exactly what vitamins and nutrients you should be giving yourself EVERY DAY (this is why you see % of Daily Value on the side of the box when you read the serving size).

This link below tells you what they do for your body.  Really read it- are you looking for a cure for a disease you have or wish to prevent it? 

Okay, so now you know what they do for ya, how do you get them?  First you should know that you can take supplements, however if you want to be sure your body absorbs it- it's best to intake goodness with food..  The link below tells you from which foods you can get your nutrients.

Dating Do Nots

I had a difficult time naming this entry because this isn't necessarily a guide to catching a keeper.
It's a "How to Behave" type of entry.

Step outside the box just for a minute and reflect on your behavior in your current courtship, but first, let us look at the facts:

1. You have children
2. You work to provide
3. You are rearing them
4. You cook
5. You have a house
6. You do the laundry, yard work, dishes, clean toilets and floors and take the trash to the dump and even fix crap you despise fixing simply because you have no choice.
7. You pay your bills- on time/ late but you stress and aim to do it- because you have to.
8. I could go on and on

When everything is quiet, you read when you can, watch movies, paint your nails, take a hot steamy baths and go shopping... when you can and if you can afford to... Sometimes, you want a man. Of course! Look at what all is going on! You're alone! Imagine the stress from the list above you could cross out if only you had that partner in life.

So what do you do? This is what you SHOULD NOT DO!!! Don't woo him, flatter him and beg him to be your man. Don't wait for him, caress him and tell him how bad you want him. Why?

I wrote another piece on this- read it- Leader of the Pack

We're all animals on this earth. You are the alpha female. He should pick you out, woo you, flatter you and beg you to be his woman. He should adore you so much that he just can't rest without knowing he'll be taking care of your kids and you.

You have everything in your world. Let him prove himself- and don't go committing your destiny to this guy if he hasn't proved to be the following: to be big enough, strong enough, friendly enough, and smart enough to be the leader of your pack.

Do not chase the man.  Do not invite him out.  Do not ask him to stay. Do not be waiting for him.  Do not stop your routines because you meet someone new.  Do not REARRANGE your calendar or stop everything for HIM.

UNLESS you meet this criteria right here---> you are homeless.

I thought I was done but I must put this out there. If you are single and dating...if you have a home, a job, a car- KEEP THEM! They go by another name- Independence.  Do not drop everything you have in life to be "kept" because at that point- he owns you. DUH.

If you are not married, he should NEVER co sign... on anything. If you can't get it on your own, you don't need it.

We are Wolves!

It's easy to understand families when you learn to understand wolves.  It may also help in the dating world because it's apparent that men and women alike tend to forget their place.  When you know your place, you'll know what you're looking for. I'm sharing the wolves information as taken from another blog, Terrierman's Daily Dose for my comparison.  Do read on!!!

This is describing the make up of a wolf pack- which I compare to human family:
You see, a wolf pack is made up of a single dominant male, a single dominate female, and several satellite females, generally from previous whelps. Male wolves are driven out around or by 18 months of age because by then, the young males of these respective species are big enough to hunt on their own and yet they are also beginning to become potential rivals for females. The top male cannot have that.

It is suppose to work this way in the human world too.  Father, mother, children.  They should leave the home.  period.

Reiterating that you need to prepare your children to be adults.  They must leave the home:
Dominance creates wolf packs and dominance maintains wolf packs. The driving out of adolescent males is at the core of how wolf packs are created and maintained. This is dominance. And it is Wolf Pack 101.

And here's the human mama- she's wolf like too:
What about females? The female wolves in a wolf pack also have their dominance issues. You see with wolves, there may be many mature females in the pack, but there will almost always be only one female who will come into estrus, be mated, and whelp.

How it works.... Pay attention ladies!
How is that "top female" determined? Well, the male picks her, of course (or vice versa if the pack has lost its alpha male). The individual picked is generally the healthiest and strongest female in the group - the one that all the other females are submissive to.

Family started, then what???:
A strong and lucky male may hold a top slot for as long as a decade, but more often that not the top male will die from injuries or disease long before that. And with that male's death, a new male, from outside the pack, will be recruited and a complete out-cross achieved.

Single mama now?  What to do?:
This doesn't happen overnight. A new Alpha doesn't just "get to claim territory,"The Alpha Female of the pack, will let a new alpha male spend about 6 hours, bowing, flexing, strutting, sniffing, and facing down all the females in the pack before he is deemed to be big enough, strong enough, friendly enough, and smart enough to be the leader. And in the end, the older, but still fertile, alpha female can be won over and the old leader's slot be handed to him.

I hope this resonates with you. 

Single ladies,
Stop hunting for your pack leader.  When you're approached by a man, let him bow, flex, strut and all that.  Let him work to get your approval.  Don't just make him leader because he's the first one that comes around!!!
